    What other hobbies have you got other than Transformers?
    I collect die-cast cars and I fly RC helicopters. What about you?

    As a kid, I built scale model ships. Those models are now falling apart from being almost 15-20 years old.

    I collect and fly Flags. US flags, Historical and other national Flags. I have a few vintage US flags, a 48 star and 49 Star flag. Been looking at a 45 Star to aquire.

    I love US History and the history of the Titanic and other trans-atlantic ocean lines of the past.

    The usual action figures-G.I. Joe, Star Wars, and select Marvel (mostly Venom) and DC (Batman and his enemies) figures. I also have a ton of Star Trek The Next Generation figures and this past Summer decided to collect the entire run of Kenner Swamp Thing figures and vehicles.

    Outside of action figures I have collected a version of the boardgame Clue from almost every decade since it was released in the US.

    I've been collecting insects for a long time. Right now, I am maintaining a collection with a focus on one group of beetles. Through my collecting activity, I am involved in a personal research that resulted in publishing three papers. Two additional papers are in the works right now. One of which, involved in naming 20 new species found in the state of Hawaii.

    That sword above your arch. That reminds me of the weapon that the Klingons use in Star Trek. Is it from that? Look's cool!

    I also occasionally build model cars. I love assembling RC helicopters and cars though haven't done cars since last year.
    Primary hobby is RC helicopters since Dad enjoys it as well and we like doing it together. Plus, it's the one hobby he really helps support me with. Transformers and cars he could care less about. But RC helicopters and airplanes, he's all for it.

    I used to create digital music, techno, dance and what not. But I can't find any really good music-creating software for Mac. I did have Garage Band that came with it, but I didn't like it.

    Just started collecting 1/43 scale resin model car's again this month.
