    My Outlaw Star Merchandise Quest...thing?

    Hey guys. My name is Justin. New to the group as of 04/2019.

    I致e been a fan of the show since I was a kid, but my love for the show has grown like never before over the past few months.

    I知 not quite sure why the sudden attraction.

    Maybe its the nostalgia factor, maybe I知 having a midlife crisis, maybe I知 bored, heck maybe I知 avoiding the issues in my life and I知 shifting all my focus towards the one thing that makes me happy because ultimately I know that A BOY HAS THE RIGHT TO DREAM!

    Regardless of the reason, I知 not going to fight it. Strike while the fire is hotright?

    Recently I started rewatching the series for the 1,000th time and I had a random thought as I looked at my beat 10+ year old PERFECT COLLECTION DVD BOX SET: I remember the first day I got this box and how happy it made me.

    You guys know what I知 talking about..right?

    The first time you laid your eyes on that BLACK BOX OF AWESOMENESS you just froze and said 泥ear god, I NEED THIS!賠.right?

    AM I ALONE? I doubt it.

    Personally, I thought that black box was amazing! I remember asking my mom for TWO YEARS to get it for me for Christmas. The year she did I was in shock. I loved it! The packaging, the artwork, 6 FREAKING DVDs!!!!

    While this thought crossed my mind, something in that moment made me look online for Outlaw Star merchandise. I instantly bought a open boxed toy kit. The minute I saw the XGP ship I felt like I did when I was younger. I couldn稚 describe it. That same joy was there.

    I never owned the toy set when I was younger, so I don稚 think it was nostalgia. Heck, I didn稚 even know Outlaw Star had a toy set. All I know was that it made me smile. I don稚 smile often. I want to smile more. This show made me happy. As dumb as it sounds, I want to ride that feeling!

    So thats what I致e been doing.

    BUT THEN..I stumbled onto this site and OMG has the attraction grown!

    The knowledge of the manga, additional books, Cds, etc.

    As corny as it sounds (though I think some of you can relate) I feel like I just stumbled onto the Galatic Leyline and there are riches beyond my wildest imaginations standing right in front of me. I know you guys felt this way when you heard about those missing chapters.

    At this point I知 not trying to 田ollect every piece of merchandise or become the biggest OS fan, I知 just trying to celebrate the show, the joy it is giving me, build a little collection in the process, and hopefully make a place for myself in this community.

    So while I知 building this 田ollection, instead of sending MANTIS 10,000 messages OR posting 10,000 separate sub topics about this stuff, I thought I would make my own post and document what I知 doing/post updates/ask questions/etc.

    I'm starting to learn a lot about the series, the manga, merchandise, and more. But I have a lot of questions and the more and more that I start working on this "collection", I'm going to have MORE questions.

    So please, join me and watch me drain what little money I have into a hobby that is questionable for a 33 year old to get into.

    BYE.

    Hey Justin. My name is Mantis and I am also an outlawholic. In all seriousness, that was a great read. I'm really glad OSN has reignited that passion! At the same time I do feel a pang of guilt when I think of your poor wallet, but I'm sure you'll be more sensible than I. Of curiosity, do you remember how exactly you stumbled upon OSN? We talked about search engines some days back but which was the thread that first caught your eye? It's always good news whenever I receive proof that OSN actually exists on search engines!

    Honestly, I think people should just do what makes them happy. If that is (at least for some period of time) collecting merch, then why not? I know that my standpoint is not at all biased, but really, I think that collectors of any kind have all shared these feelings. But we're only here once, so collect away if that's what you wanna do! (Besides which, it's a pretty normal hobby compared to some.)

    No, really. Collect.


    Oh, a 33-year-old? We do have somebody who's two years older than you, so you're not the oldest collector! Great thread anyhow, and I look forward to watching your journey progress! If you have any merch questions, certainly ask away.

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Outlawholic....Classic!

    I think I stumbled onto the twitter first while searching #outlawstar.

    Actually no, now that it dawns on me, I think the first time I ever saw the OSN logo was the video with that dude laughing constantly. I can稚 remember how I found it, but I certainly remember seeing that and being like WTF IS THIS? It was hilarious.
