How It All Started
I have collected toys and action figures for a long time. I rarely kept them "in the box" for investment purposes. My childhood was filled with battles of Star Wars figures and G.I. Joes. Having spent 10 years in the Army, and having finally settled down, I was home alone in my new house one Saturday when I decided to build a D-Day diorama in the background. I had probably just seen Saving Private Ryan for the 100th time. Anyway, I grabbed some Normandy Rangers and some figures of the 29th Infantry Division. This was the first one, with many more to come afterward. Nothing terribly great about this, just liked the close up of the concertina barb wire.
