Ignore them, or throw their own flaws in their face. The way I see it, your friends are ignorant and narrowminded. I'm not trying to insult your friends, but it's the simple truth. When they look at your toys, they only see children's playthings. Personally, I don't play with my toys, and I pay good money for them. I keep them displayed because I think they look awesome, and because they're symbols of my favorite characters. They are no different to me than a movie poster, autograph, or other awesome piece of memorabilia. My toys are works of art. If you tell them that, and they laugh, it pretty much confirms how narrowminded they are. As if framed paintings and marble statues are the only forms of art you can collect and display in your house.
