I started around 1978 with collecting fantasy figures from Grenadier, Essex, Rose PA and GW. I bought only the figures I liked the look, not collecting minis of specific brand. From GW I bought the whole set of LOTR figures when they came out. During time approx 50% of the GW minis started with lead rott. From then on I didn’t buy any of the GW’s anymore. In the german magazin “Zaubererzeit” I saw the first advertisemnt for M1 Galadriel. I couldn’t wait for this figure to be available in the stores. I bought Mithril up to the number M164 and then I stopped and had for the next 10+ years more important things to. Then I decided to sell all the minis I had collected.
I got rid of most of the minis of all the other brands exept the Mithril. I only sold the ones I had doubles of. The rest went back in storage. Aprox three years ago I started again collecting Mithril!
