'Collecting the Precious' - Collecting Column comes to TheOneRing.net Can't Post

Welcome to "Collecting the Precious" a new column on TheOneRing.net about Tolkien collectibles.

I want to start this off with a little bit about myself. I've been collecting virtually all my life from sports cards to many of the high end items we see today. My collecting interest include many things like Lord Of The Rings, Marvel, Star Wars, GI Joe, He-Man, and more. All of which I talk about on a blog that I run called The Pulse. Tolkien's work first came into my life first when I was in high school and saw a few friends reading The Lord Of The Rings. However, my own fandom while sparked wouldn't kick in just yet.

A few years later I was at a movie with my folks and saw the first trilogy trailer for Sir Peter Jackson's films. I was blown away by what I saw and remembered my mom and I talking about how The Hobbit and Fellowship Of The Ring were two books she remembers reading while in school. That got me to thinking what was I missing especially after seeing Fellowship in the theater. So at that point I started reading the books every year and it's been a big part of my life since.

As to what this column will be about. This is going to be weekly column and at worst an every other week column that covers collecting Tolkien items from The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings. These can and will range from items from Sideshow Collectibles, Weta Workshop, and more. Some weeks it will be a review and some weeks it will be just what's going on within the world of collecting Tolkien. That way you stay in touch with what's going on in the world of Tolkien collecting and if these items are worth your purchase.

There is one thing I would ask of you the reader for help on this journey. If you see something please do not hesitate to send me a link or info on the product. I will try to catch everything I possibly can but I will need your help to make sure every Tolkien fan can get the news of what's happening in the collecting world. So one final thank you to the readers as you help me make this journey a really awesome one.

Finally, I want to thank everyone at TheOneRing.net for allowing me to become a member of the staff and a part of this fantastic site. It's one I have been checking out for years now and a chance to become a part of it to spread my love for Tolkien was something I had to I jump at. So again thank you to Chris, Cliff, and Larry among others. It means a lot to me.
