About Me :

My passion for robots started with Voltron. That and I lived in a neighborhood full of chinese shops that sold tons of chogokin. Even before Voltron, my mom would come home with weird obscure robots with boxes I couldnt read. She was bringing home Valkyries, Orguss toys, Iron Gear/Xabungle toys, Dunbine and a bunch of other random stuff. Even some cool knockoffs. My first real full blown chogokin was Daitarn 3. Unpacking that started my obsession for robots. My passion started to die off in my 20's until I realized why... The robots I was collecting at that time were not metal...soon as I discovered SOC, I got hooked again. Now I am in my 30's and I have more chogokin than I know what to do with, but I'm damn happy. Now trying to collect what I had as a kid too. I have been a writer for this site for a few years. I also attend the Toy Fair and Comic Con with other CDX staff to provide content for the site.
