What did you think of "The 40 Year Old Virgin"?
Would you ever sell your toys if you fell in love with a girl?
DONT YOU FUCKING GIVE UP. CLEAN YOURSELF UP AND TRY HARDER
my girlfriend is a model and she wants sex more than I do and she thinks my collection is cool, and even if she didn't then too bad. It's not like my collection is big anyway, just 2 shelves. sooo... no.
Nine years to go!
But yeah, no, I wouldn't be with anyone that didn't accept my hobbies if that's the angle you're coming from op. I've dated girls that liked it and were into their own odd things. They exist. Don't settle for the first one with issues you can manipulate to suit your needs like he did because it won't work out like the movie.
This. People are quick to call you on your priorities if you say shit like this cause they'll be like "it's just toys!" But nah, that's not what it's about. It's about being able to like what you like. Yeah, sure, you should change for your significant other, but not like this. If they can't live with your hobbies, especially one as inane and harmless as toy collecting, then they don't love you that much.
I feel extremely lucky and happy to be with a girl who is 100% cool with my collecting and even picks up stuff for herself sometimes.
Been dating my girlfriend for 3 years, she loves my collection and even collects Queens Blade, Vocaloid and Sonico stuff herself. Score. I'd never have to throw anything out for her, luckily.
>CLEAN YOURSELF UP
Believe it not I'm not a neckbeard if that's what your thinking. I'm average looking at best and fairly able to get a GF I think. Problem is girls around here range from white trash to way out of my league. There are very few middle ground.
I have transcended your carnal desires
I live for the plastic
I'm very lucky that my girlfriend doesn't really care about my toy collecting, she even lives with me and has to deal with my friend and I talking about them constantly. Though the idea of giving up a hobby for someone else just seems bad. If the person you're with/want to be with doesn't support you in the things that make you happy, chances are that they don't/won't make you happy.
why lie like that to the man
this semen demon having a seizure or what? why cant moeblob makers into natural movement
and as for op's question I hope I never get to that level (too poor anyway) but maybe I'd check my stuff from time to time and get rid of the things I wont use/enjoy having anymore. keeping boxes and stuff in good condition helps if you wanna sell it later I guesss
This reminded me of "you lose if you work".
Like, why conform to what society expect you to do when you have the option to avoid wasting your life doing something you are going to hate and will make you miserable?
>op doesn't know about rusty brown
Oh boy... Here comes true /toy/
HERE COMES THE FEELS
>this comic actually made me control buys
this shit is so stupid. I hate how they always portray toy collectors as guys in their mid-40's with some ugly capeshit dolls from the 70's. That's fucking stupid and out of touch with most of /toy/, which is more 20-30's guys collecting weaboo and robot toys and lego sets.
It's more socially acceptable to collect toys now so yes you're right about 20's something normal guys browsing /toy/ but people like rusty do exist who use disability checks to buy toys
It's a good read, hes been through a lot and so many feels :(
What like if you're getting any sort of financial assistance due to things entirely beyond your control you suddenly can't have a fucking hobby? Get cancer and eat your own shit kid.
The only ones I particularly care about are the ones you see asking about how to fake mental disorders in order to get a disability check to pay for toys and video games rather than get a job. In my opinion, people that actually need that assistance should be able to spend it on whatever they want if they can swing it.
There are few more strips of adult rusty
You can torrent the complete Acme Novelty and I think it's issue 16 or something
There are more stories about rusty's childhood and his dad
It's really super sad how he got this way
Eh, I'm in a mysogynistic phase at the moment and viewing almost any pretty girl who hits on me a whore or bitch. It'll probably go in a few years, though I'd still keep the toys for my kid to play with
I've been selling a lot of my collection as it is. Trying to just keep what I want. Many women thnk they're ok, but the amount I own is daunting for myself. A smaller, manageable collection isn't anything to anyone. 300+ transformers, 500 actions figures, thousands of other mini doo-dads. It's bad.....
I don't want to be that guy, but if someone doesn't accept me for me; fuck 'em. If someone has become that much of a tyrannical control freak that changing who you are is a necessity for your continued relationship, it's fairly unlikely they'll do the same for you, and equally as unlikely that they'll stop at just one thing.
It's honestly not worth emasculating myself. I only have one life and I don't intend to live it based on someone else's design.
I would have, but I already met her.
Any woman who truly cares about you, would understand you keeping them, and supporting you.
Any woman who demeans you and calls you childish over it is not worth the trouble.
I hate to sound like 'that guy', but it always seems to me that the women who want you to liquidate your collection and 'grow up' are the ones lusting after things like Hermes handbags with five-digit price tags.
Not that you could ever point this out to them without them turning into a spitting, snarling ball of hatred that will occasionally cry 'it's completely different'...
Not like a rich super model in france or some shit, she's signed with an agency, did her first calendar shoot a couple months ago but I have no proof to offer without breaking anonymity so call my claim bullshit, don't care.
OH YEAH? WELL A GIRL I KNEW IN COLLEGE WAS AN UNDERWEAR MODEL AND SHE FOLLOWED ME AROUND NO MATTER WHERE I SAT AND SHE KEPT ON TALKING ABOUT BLAHBLAHunderwearmodelBLAH AND I DIDNT EVEN REALIZE IT WAS THE SAME PERSON UNTIL THE END OF THE SEMESTER AND THEN I SPILLED MY SPAGHETTI ALL OVER MYSELF
i have other true stories, including one about a mormon stripper that literally dragged me into the bathroom once!
happened in the same campus too.
That was the movie that taught me how to masturbate. I actually share my name with that particular character too, which is funny.
I wouldn't sell my toys because someone I loved told me to - but if I was sitting on a serious investment and I needed money for a stable venture, maybe.
Never saw that one.
I'm dating with one lovely redhead for last 3 years, and have around 70 statues in my apartment (mostly from those ugly japanese porn cartoons).
>What did you think of "The 40 Year Old Virgin"?
It was too long. Chucklefuck coworkers trying to get him laid felt like a full movie and YesVaginaButNoMoreHobbies felt like a full movie.
>Would you ever sell your toys if you fell in love with a girl [that wanted you to]?
Luckily, I fell in love with, and married a girl whose dad was a collector, so this isn't an issue. If I were single and my latest poontang wanted me to sell everything off and stop, well >>4518491 already explained it pretty well. If someone can't support and love you for what you enjoy in life, its just going to lead to a lot of resentment and bitterness. I'd break off the relationship.
Is that a custom double-detolf? Can you buy those?
As far as selling toys goes, I won't delude myself - most of the stuff I collect probably won't ever be worth enough to bother even listing: Maybe a boxed vinyl Discord with pre-release sucker might be worth something to somebody several years after they stop making them, but otherwise my meagre collection is mostly kitschy and nostalgic stuff.
Do you ever wonder about the ultimate fate of your collection, like what would happen if you suddenly died and your family has to deal with a mountain of crap (in their eyes) whose value they have little idea of?
It's not like the toys were the main reason he's still a virgin, he had many attempts, it was his awkwardness that messed it up.
But more on topic if anyone tried to change any aspect of who I am to fit thier ideals, then they can GTFO.
I tried the 3d life for a while. It was never worth it.
I started selling a bunch of stuff after I got married, not because she asked me to but I just kinda lost interest in it. My wife introduced me to a lot of new experiences and would rather spend money camping/ fishing and going on roadtrips.
Most people on this board are too young to have any life perspective, let alone have non bullshit edgy 12 year old opinions on mental health and disability.
It really doesn't matter how much money it is, you can't control what people buy or how much. Being jealous of people on disability because they get more money than you makes you absolutely fucking retarded and pathetic.
Look man, at least he gets a say in how he spends that money, you know, the money that the government forcibly takes from its citizens
You shouldn't be mad at him for spending it as he wishes, that's not the real problem, the real problem is that you're allowing a group of jackasses to forcibly take your money and you are doing nothing to stop them
>shes a model, and we are happy, and gonna have a million babies, and live happily ever after.
I don't understand people like this. You post some stupid stuff on an anonymous board, people raise suspicion, then you tell them that you don't care.
Okay, like if you didn't care and you're not open for a discussion, then why bother posting?
I'm genuinely confused as to why some people post redundant shit like this.
Because he's only sharing his experience that OP asked and doesn't care if people doubt him?
He's only here to share his experience, not to provide documentation to a couple of ugly neckbeards who can't get a GF, thus no one can.
Lots of people post here so it's not out of the ordinary that some people here can have a decent job or be good looking and able to attain 7-10/10s girls. Not everyone here looks like this.
If you live a life that is that completely devoid of anything related to love or friendship, join the fucking military or something and put your shit into storage. It'll help you out by ungodly amounts.

>See, Trombley asked about shooting people. I asked about pussy. The guy told me I'd get to go to Thailand, get all kinds of strange. What'd you ask about, Brad? Brad probably saw that T.V. commercial, the one with the knight that fucks up the dragon then turns into the Marine.
> Woo woo! Dress blues with a sword!
>Fucking dress blues commercial man. That got so many fucking guys. Now look at us: Trombley hasn't killed anybody, I'm half a world away from good Thai pussy, and Colbert is out here rolling around fuckbutt Iraq, hunting for dragons in a MOPP suit that smells like four days of piss and ball sweat.
Enjoy meeting women who
* are single mothers, 90% of them I swear
* hate video games
* will only reply if you have a sexy photo of yourself and indicate you are wealthy
* are likely overweight
* will be the bottom fo the barrel, but will insist their man be top of the line
If those women were hot shit, they'd not need an online dating site.
Never did it. What about the women in a similiar situation such as you? If you say
>botoom of the barrel
then no one can help you.
And what about girls, who've just been disappointed so far and look for people with the same interests? Doesn't hurt to try...
never join the military, let the jackasses that want to kill people do it themselves and with their own bodies on the line. fuck that shit, they turn you into an order taking bitch and your only useful task is helping destabilize civilizations and wasting taxpayer money because "we can't be responsible and leave any left over or they might cut our budget!"
please. An incompetent commander, a bunch of disloyal top brass and disgruntled soldiers.
Joker came closer to being a deadlier threat to the world and he often just had Harley Quinn and 2 or 3 goons helping him. In fact, just taking Batman TAS into account, he had a few good eps where he topped anything Cobra ever did by a wide margin.
>using a toxin-loaded garbage scowl to make the entire city laugh with a gas that would eventually cause permanent insanity
>stole a nuke and came within seconds of leveling Gotham
>the sheer psychological torture he put Bruce through when he kidnapped Tim Drake
>his future reincarnation almost wrecked Gotham with a space laser
The only reason Cobra was never stopped was because GI Joe are morons.
I found in my area only like 1 in 10 to be single moms.
Hating video games was pretty common. I don't get why binge watching netflix is ok, but video games are stupid. Don't mention you're gamer
Plenty will reply if you send them a decent message. They get a handful of messages a day, stand out, they'll get back to you
Yes, they are over weight. I've been way...way too many online dates. Well over half of them hide their weight and heavier than they appear in pics and "a few extra pounds" or "average" is... a lie. Many of them carried it well, some did not. It didn't bother me, I mean, their looks. The misleading part is soooo frustrating though. That in their head it;s ok and they have to hide and lie and... it;s a terrible first impression. I'd much rather go out with an even fatter girl who;s comfortable with herself
This one... will vary. Everyone wants a free ticket. Everyone wants a rich catch that has it all. Many younger women want mr.perfect, but you can be a variation of that to them if you try. The older ways who got on with their life without Mr.Perfect are just genuinely lonely If two people can enjoy each others company and share their lives, then that's great, how many toys or games you like won't matter. The older women who are still looking for Mr.Perfect are to be avoided, but most of them are single moms.
We know what the question is...
Are you a loser for collecting toys?
If you are working your ass off in life and not living beyond your paycheck then that is better than lot of people. I know guys who have kids and would rather drink than raise them. They have girlfriends and wives and they cheat on them. Actors that are fucking millionaires who can't hold on to a relationship.
How about the guys who are obsessed with cars or guns? Ever meet a gun owner who was satisfied with the weapons he has?
Whether this is a bad obsession or just something that makes you smile is up to you to decide.
BTW Christmas is coming so buy something for the kids.
I started watching this movie because of this thread, though I could use a nice laugh.
Couldn't really get through half of this movie, it's so stupid. As for the question, I don't know. Not really interested in relationships right now.
27-year-old unvirgin here. Lost mine at 21, after getting into good shape and learning how to dress at uni.
Sex really isn't the be-all and end-all people make it out to be. There are better ways to spend your time than chasing tail.
>Would you ever sell your toys if you fell in love with a girl?
Why not just find a girl that relates to you?
My wife collects Precious Moments and Barbie stuff. Everyone has some kind of hobby. She's totally cool with my action figure collection.
The fact that someone thinks that you have to give up a hobby when you "fall in love" is ludicrous. Not all women are bitches.
She inherited most of them from her mother. She literally buys about 3 a year. They sit in a cabinet in the corner of our dining room and don't harm anyone. They're like Spanish Fly to her. Look it up virgin.
Don't be bitter just cause I have a family while you're still living off Hot Pockets in your parents basement you kiss-less virgin.
My girlfriend is into toys too. In fact, she currently doesn't have a credit or debit card, so lately I've been pre-ordering things for her and she pays me back in cash.
Why spend time with people who have some problem with your hobbies? If they make you happy and don't negatively impact your life, they're a good thing. With toy collecting, you just have to manage your finances and space. Do that and you're golden.
>precious moments are the worst type of statueshit. Sorry bro, just my opinion.
I never said I liked them but it makes her happy so I put up with them. I honestly hardly ever have to even look at them since they are in the dinning room which we never use unless we entertain like during the holidays.
Damnit op, I'm far away from this but you reminded me that the possibility exists. [spoiler] there's still time so things will be good right? ;_; Also damn TBS[spoiler]
Oh, for Christ's sake. It's a comic. Hopefully you don't mirror Rusty Brown to a tee. If you somehow do, step one is to take out all the fucking garbage. That alone will bump you up a few pegs.
This. Companionship is much better than sex. Men can't have mind-blowing multiple orgasms that last for 20 minutes like women can. It's 5 seconds of
and then back to your life. But it is nice if you can get it on the reg.
Yeah, I've been in an FWB situation for a while now, and it actually just makes me want a real relationship even more. Don't get me wrong, sex is cool, and the buildup and excitement of getting there is fun, but it really does end with 5 seconds of hurr and then wanting to go do something else.
>meet this cute new girl at work
>she mentions her ex boyfriend used to collect toys
>"Its so fucking dumb right? cmon its stupid. You're an adult. I tried to get him to sell them but he never did."
I should of asked what he collected... But yeah I'm convinced that if a girlfriend doesn't support your hobby, its probably gonna fail from the start.
>I should have asked what he collected
I fucking lost it
Jesus Christ in so fucking sick of people talking about suicide just fucking kill yourself already and stop bothering normal people. I came here to read about toys and I'm fucking sick of seeing posts off topic. The world is better off without you
>this shit is so stupid. I hate how they always portray toy collectors as guys in their mid-40's with some ugly capeshit dolls from the 70's.
Im 30 and i collect mostly weird obscure shit. Like Aah! Real Monsters! figures or other weird creatures and stuff that looks "realistic" (McFarlane horror series, Gremlins) so people who see that think that im a cool uncle that collects all kinds of cool/weird crap.
I guess they would make fun of me if i was into superheroes or weaboodolls.
And i don't go to toy stores because there are never monster toys these days...except Trash Pack may be...
Oh my fucking lord Anon never said his wife collected figurines of child genitals, who the fuck cares. He's with a woman that has a similar hobby and doesn't mind his interests. Jesus christ you niggas need to grow up.
>two minutes or so of non-specific shame you're programmed to feel after the act.
Ahhhhhh, what? Never experienced that one lol.
I would like to have someone to cuddle with.
And I do like watching movies and stuff with company, so if I could combine my love of movies with snuggling, that'd be great.
Where the hell am I gonna find a girl who's willing to put up with such absurd quantities of giant robot anime and classic cinema though?
As someone who is married, don't bother. Its overrated.
There are many times I wish I was a basement dwelling neckbeard with no real worry beyond what I want to masturbate to this hour.
According to Chalky's wife, Rusty was apparently acting creepy around their adolescent daughter during a visit. She claimed she didnt like the way he would look at her
Rusty trying to give the kid a naked Barbie doll he found at the flea market under the door while she was on the toilet was the last straw. and Chalky's wife demanded that they stop being friends.
Chalky always was a massive beta seeing as how both Rusty and his wife could push him around.
>Actors that are fucking millionaires who can't hold on to a relationship.
has admitted that her "diva behavior" in the past has wrecked her relationships with men
Hopefully, Rusty is a truly despicable example of a human.
Chalky is like Rusty, but with redeeming qualities, which is what allowed him to grow as a person instead of stagnating in a pit of nostalgia like Rusty.
>Men can't have mind-blowing multiple orgasms that last for 20 minutes like women can
You're sexing wrong. Maybe not 20 minutes, but 5 seconds? Nuh-uh.
But it is true, sex is just sex. Chasing after cheap sex is pretty unfulfilling. You should chase after a long term relationship. THAT is worth the effort.
Chalky had a pretty comparably shitty early life.
i'm a gun owner and i'm satisfied with the life i lead, being able to collect guns that i like.
i'm also a /toy/soldier that enjoys legos and godzilla shit. i also liked giving up my entire bionicle collection in 2007. every set, 2001-2007 to the neighbor kid because his parents didn't get him anything for his birthday and didn't seem to give a fuck how he was turning out. and he seemed like a bright little fella.
he was, his MOCs were far greater than ones that i could do. shit, i want a kid. too bad i'm sterile.
>shitty life is moving, dad leaving, and being rejected by early childhood friend
How coddled was your life that that's considered shitty?
The hallmark of neckbeards everywhere. Don't you dare judge them for their weird obsessions, but fuck whatever else you may be in to. I had a friend that collected SW figures and overpriced prop replicas and would even go to Comic Cons dressed as a Stormtrooper that looked like he ate the rest of his squad, and he would scoff at the mere idea of Lego because he viewed it as kiddy shit.
>been with multiple girls
>can be seen as "normal" in a sense
>have no idea how to relate with people beyond mimicking behavior and only really just want to play with toys/build gunpla
>keep up the visage anyway
>get arrested for having pot on me that wasn't even mine
>friends alienate me
>gunpla is all I have now, because I'm failing in uni and in life in general
I wouldn't give them up for something as trivial as pussy.
>have no idea how to relate with people beyond mimicking behavior and only really just want to play with toys/build gunpla
I know this feel all too well. God speed, comrade.
What's that supposed to mean?
It's really hard living the normie lifestyle when all you're trying to do is act around people. It's strange.
Sometimes I'm sitting around at a party talking to some vapid slut and all I want to do is airbrush my new kit, but I can't because if I didn't show up I'd be ridiculed and so now I'm stuck interacting with women who only like me for my looks or for how "smart" I am due to all the random trivia I know despite being an absolute failure in every regard.
It's a weird feel. I don't like it. I want to get an apartment to myself where I can put an indoor painting station next to a window and live happily.
I was kinda in your shoes a few years ago. I guess I was sorta one of the "cool kids" and all my friends were about chatting up girls and barhopping and shit. I'd go to all these events I didn't care about in order to not catch shit from them. After a while I just got sick of it and went cold turkey. If I got invited out I'd just tell em flat out, nah, I'm going home to chill and play video games. Then cue the whining and hollering and shit. It was annoying, but after a while they got the message and stopped bothering me so much. Now I've hit a pretty good balance, I go out when I want and stay in when I want. Most times I stay in and just do quiet things like build Gunpla or sketch. That makes me happy.
>not dating someone who will tolerate or even enjoy your hobbies with you
For fucks sake we're not that weird. I'm literally the result of two successive generations of toy collectors marrying normalfags and obviously doing well enough to procreate. Grandma has an absolutely ridiculous collection of vintage toys that she was even encouraged to display and grow, and my dad has a huge toy and collectibles hoard that my mom does not personally enjoy but is more than happy to share room with and gift him more pieces. I'm a collector dating another collector and even if we don't both like all the same things, we can appreciate each other's tastes and be rational adults about it. If you're dating someone and they have issues with your stuff, fucking sit down and talk about it like grown ups. If its something reasonable like "Hey maybe lets not display your cabinet full of cast-off lolis in the living room" or an issue of them thinking you might be spending too much on the collection, then listen and work something out, move your lolis, make a budget and stick to it to show you're responsible, etc. If they just hate toys, think its childish, or are just grossed out by the thought of it, then maybe the problem is with them. People without hobbies are fucking weird, not us.
Fucking this. And if having someone who doesn't want me to change them is impossible, then I'm happy not having someone. Rather have no one than someone who doesn't really love me for who I am and wants to change me so selfishly.
Only situation I'd get rid of my toys for someone else would be if my family suddenly had nowhere else to go and my house was their only option for a new home. I live by myself in a rather big house, with a couple rooms displayed with mechs, figures and Lego. Even have the garage prepped for building gunpla. Wouldn't trade any of that for a girl. Pretty happy with it all. Despite having bad luck finding someone that isn't so overly attached, I'm pretty content being a single toy fag.
>Being jealous of people on disability because they get more money than you makes you absolutely fucking retarded and pathetic.
>get more money than you
Too bad they don't. The max most get is $720 a month and a job at Walmart working 5 days a week pays significantly more. I should know because I was in that position. Lived in a shitty little hick town where once something got out everyone knew about it and because I was labeled learning disabled in school for depression everyone thought I was retarded and was unsuitable for work. I spent years going to places three times a week dressed up as nice as possible and kept getting turned down. One day I said fuck it and applied for disability and the judge who overlooked my case took pity on me. I now have a job that pays more and have zero regrets for having been on disability and using some of it to buy a figure I liked here and there.
3 years and going, she doesn't even know yet.
None of my friends nor my girlfriend know I collect and build Lego. All my lego is behind a bookshelf-door a carpenter helped me with leading to a hidden room like pic
It's going to be a problem if she moves over.
You know, if she's cared enough about you to stick with you for that long she probably wouldn't have cared about your hobby in the first place. She'd probably accept it.
But when she finds out that you've gone through this much effort to hide something you really care about from her, you're absolutely fucked. Talk about future trust issues.
It's too late to just mention it casually.
3 years of you hiding it, and the fact you had a secret room built just to hide it is just weird and would put most women off.
You should just come right out and tell her.
>It's too late to just mention it casually.
Exactly. You've turned nothing into something fucking weird and elusive. The only way to fix this is to sell it as something way weirder than it actually is. Send her some awkward texts and then one that ambiguously says you have something you need to talk to her about. Something she needs to know about you. Then sit her down and talk about your relationship, how close you are and how important it is that she accepts you no matter what. Make it as uncomfortable as possible so that once it's over she'll be laughing her ass off. Tell her that you've been sort of in the closet throughout your time together, but clarify that it's not really a closet so to speak, it's much more than that. Then when she's clearly under the impression that you've been suppressing your seething homosexuality, tell her you have something to show her and walk her to your bookshelf. you should have placed a picture of you and a male friend she could perceive as your gay lover sitting there nonchalantly. Bonus points if it's already there. Take a big exaggerated breath and say it's time for you to find out, it had to happen eventually, then reach for the photo but instead grab the bookcase frame and swing it wide upon. Maybe rig up a little confetti and balloon drop inside. Then go "just fucking with you, wanna build something?" and go from there. If she's even the least bit cool she'll be interested in your sweet hideaway room regardless of the toys.
No woman can give me the satisfaction of owning and controlling stuff that toys give me, since she has her own feelings and I can't own her, so no, I wouldn't sell my stuff even if I met the right girl, because my "right girl" wouldn't ask me to sell anything that is important for me.
Now, if I was in a very tight economical situation, that's another story.
I'm holdin' out for a girl who likes toys, and other shit I'm into. They're out there. Just gotta find em.
It annoys me forever, because now most girls and all the newcomers on /toy/ are all
"I found this toy / he has these toys... they're old... therefore I could afford a huge wedding and a week in mexico if I sold it."
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN THIS ISN'T WORTH ANYTHING OMG NO IT HAPPENED IN A MOVIE I NEED A THOUSAND DOLLARS WHY"
Blame Buzzfeed and their constant YOUR CHILDHOOD TOYS ARE WORTH MILLIONS ON EBAY posts full of extreme misinformation. Any psycho can list a Furby on Ebay for $2000, but Buzzfeed doesn't understand that it doesn't mean someone will actually buy it for that much. No one knows how to do fucking research for themselves anymore and believe whatever arbitrary thing they see linked on Facebook.
That reminds me of a client I had. His wife has the second largest Madame Alexander collection in the world. I had to take photos of every single doll one time for her cataloging. It took hours.
