I'm a Simpsons nut; one of those guys who memorizes minor character names and tells you when they move places around in Springield. I just haven't talked much about it since Bruce Castle left.

If I had to pick only one thing I could be a fan of forever, I'd have a hard time deciding between Simpsons or GL. If I had three, probably Doctor Who would be next. I've talked more about kaiju recently because there are more of you guys here and I'm new to the hardcore fandom, so I'm still learning.

Still, I'm probably a fan of too many things. The things I'm a fan of (like where I can keep up with the other fans) are:

GL
Simpsons
Doctor Who
Star Trek
The Beatles
The Clash (and other Punk music)
Star Wars
Superman and other comics
James Bond
Kaiju (Godzilla, Gamera, Ultraman, et al)
Kung-Fu
Steampunk
Horror (well versed in slashers and werewolf lore)

Yep, too many things.

That's cool. With Doctor Who, I am just now becoming more knowledgeable about it, but I use that term loosely, as the majority of what I've learned comes from the Doctor's Revisited documentaries going over each Doctor in some detail. I'm finding Who more interesting as of late, especially with the new Doctor that's about to come along, but we'll see where it goes. As, like yourself, I find myself having alot of varied interests.

That's cool about the Simpsons stuff though. I guess I'm more of a casual fan, though whenever a Season is put out on DVD/Bluray, it's always a 'must buy' for me. Perhaps not a hardcore fan, but atleast devoted.

It would be interesting to see if anyone else here goes through this, but I find I take particular interest in one of the brands I'm a fan of, then that fizzles out and goes to the bottom of the list while something else comes to the front and so forth. So for instance, the time around Gfest makes me intensely interested in Godzilla. But since ST: Into Darkness came out I've been in a real Star Trek mood (re-watching the movies, reading the books, etc).

As we get closer to November and the 50th anniversary of DW, that will definitely rise to the top again.

Must be something obsessive in my personality because I remember even when I was a little kid being more intensely a fan of He-Man than my friends. I was the one who remembered Adam's mother was a human astronaut or Teela's is the sorceress and had to watch the re-runs every day.

Hey Space Cop. Since you're a big Simpsons fan, can you tell me two things?
1) What's the name of the Scientist from the Show, with the big glasses
2) Where can I find merch about the Comic Book Guy and the Scientist? Or do you have stuff about them?

If you wait a bit, LEGO will be releasing an all Simpsons line of Collectible minifigs sometime in the coming year, I think. Wouldn't be surprised if it had Comic Book Guy in it. If they do enough series, it will probably have Professor Frink (I think that's his name), too.

Sorry I missed the questions.
The playmates line had both. I have the Wizard Exclusive CBG (Bi-Mon Sci-Fi Con). They can occasionally be found on eBay or such, but at a price now.
There's a book of CBG's Wisdom, which is a fun read.

Thanks! I will look for the books! At least I've found a CBG Plush-Figure which I like, but it seems as if the Prof. is even harder to cope with. ^^

Yeah, I have Professor Frink too. He's visible in the second Simpsons pic, second row down, third from right.

I remember a friend (who also collects Simpsons) and I were at a store and they had 1 Frink and 1 Stephen Hawking. I forget if we flipped a coin for it or just decided, but he got Hawking and I got Frink. I wish I had both, but I guess that's the way I would've chosen it.

The Figure is very nice! To flip a coin seems to be the best way to decide. I think I would've wanted both, too. But maybe you stumble upon Hawkins sometime.

Yesterday night I wrote my CBS right away if they could order me the Comic Book Guy Plush Figure. Wanted to ask them first before I order from Amazon. But I have to have one of these, even though some of these seem a little bit strange to me, because Simpsons in 3D isn't always working, but the CBG looks nice to me.

The Book you've mentioned is also available and I'm thinking about if I should get it in mint condition from Amazon or just to buy it used from Ebay. But it seems to be a nice addition anyway.

Thanks. I moved some things around. I'll probably need to add a photo or two soon since the downstairs desk is now a diecast car display.

Yeah, I mean it probably doesn't have a lot of collectibility, but on the other hand it's an art book (as in glossy pages, all illustrated).

Yeah, thanks. I know he's out there. I just haven't brought myself to spend the over $30 price.

UPDATES to come soon, I hope.

I pick that guy up a lot just to hold him (Japanese vinyl toys are soft so they're kind of fun to hold almost like a stress toy) and repose (even though he only moves his arms). There's two variants of him, I'd really like to get--an all-white "Medical" version and an all-red "Fireman" version, but they were exclusive to a Japanese collector's magazine and I've only seen them once (sadly, I didn't know enough then to snatch them up).

If so, I salute your inner fanboy!!!

Ah, no, sorry. I hang a comic on display by my boxes (I have a real frame now), which I switch out periodically. It looks like at the time it was an issue of Sonic Universe, which means it must have been from the Sonic and Mega Man crossover.

Alas, I am many shades of fanboy as it is. I am a fan of too many things.

So, a local Youtube show spotlighted my collection. I swear I don't sound like that, but I guess I do.

+ YouTube Video
