It’s the grand and glorious revival of the acquisitions posts! I haven’t done one of these in ages and I really do want to get these back up and running. If anything, it will be an easy way to keep my blog afloat in these troubled waters of other commitments. Despite me not posting them, I have been taking pictures and diligently taking records of all the stuff I’ve been purchasing for the past year and a half (more or less) and I do hope to put them all into one ginormous loot post sometime in the very near future.
As a collector, much of the pride that I have for my collection stems from the time and effort that I take to amass each and every piece. The rarer the collectible, the more effort (and sometimes luck) necessary to obtain them and the more pride I have once it’s in my collection. (…and to be dreadfully honest, the bragging rights that come with owning a rare commodity don’t hurt either.)
This might be somewhat elitist, egotistical and entitled of me to say this, but I simply hate it when companies mass-release something that once was an exclusive.
