Opus and his toys

Toys and Collectables

One of my hobbies is collecting science fiction toys and memorabilia. Below, you can find links to some of the specific items in my collection

Animation Cels - these are the frame-by-frame drawings that make up cartoons. Currently, there are several Robotech related cels, various Ranma 1/2 cels, and one from Plastic Little that I found in a sushi restaurant.

Robotech/Macross Toys and Stuff - I already collected Robotech toys before I got the job at Gametek, but working on a Robotech game has provided some unexpected opportunities.

Other Anime Toys - although nowhere near as big as my Robotech collection, I've also been collecting some odds-and-ends from other favorite anime and manga series. I've also included a small shopping guide at the bottom, for those of you who want to add to your own anime collections.

Sci-Fi Micro Machines - I have almost complete collections of Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, and other micro machines.

Another hobby I pursue is Juggling. I have a set of four custom european Dube clubs (in these colors), as well as a set of torches, and the usual gaggle of balls, rings, and other random items. Being the visual talent that it is, however, I can't think of anything to say about it here! You can find a link to a good juggling web site here, though.

I found this little picture of a juggling figure, drawn by the pre-historic Toltec culture around 950 AD. Given my love of Mesoamerican archaeology (see the archaeology page), this was a nifty gem to find. You can find a larger version on the juggling web page liked above.
