Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

Hm, well I can't really hide my geekyness since I've been wearing glasses since 2nd grade. Yes I grew up looking at comics (I was more into the artwork), watching cartoons, memorizing every line in just about every movie I watched. Still a kid at heart I don't hide my love of toys, but I tend to go through phases where I either collect often, once every few months, or just not at all. I do display some of the figures I have (Joes are kept MOC, mainly because I like the packaging) but the rest reside in a couple storage bins.
Luckily for me most of the people I've befriended in my life share the same love of things I do, perhaps not all at the same level but I've never really got crap from anyone for collecting figures (except for the "aww your dolls!" b.s.) or knowing a lot about all things geeky. Hell, a girl I used to date loved Transformers (something you would have never guessed at first glance) and for her birthday I bought her a well kept original of her favorite Autobot to replace the one that she still had that was missing both arms. This brought her to tears, and to this day I still can't get over the fact I was able to buy my girlfriend an old Transformer and she loved me for it..how awesome is that?
I used to go to the local SDCC but stopped after it got really huge (plus I couldn't get free passes anymore hah!). I have a passion for the arts and at the moment I'm studying Graphic Design. On paper I probably sound like your typical geek but being exposed to so many different aspects of culture throughout my life has made me quite the mutant hybrid. There was a line in the Kevin Smith flick Mallrats that I always felt summed me up nicely..
"C'mon you f--kers think just 'cause a guy reads comics he can't start some sh-t? I'll f--king take all of you on!"
I could go on and on about the oddity that is me, but honestly I'd never shut up and a great deal of my life isn't exactly all "rainbows and sunshine" hehe.
