To me collecting is learning, being patient, putting in effort, turning up unusual and rare things, and buying wisely enough to make a bit of profit when you come to sell.

In my past I have come across certain collectors who look down upon others for collecting on a budget. I remember someone saying to me a good few years back that someone he knew had stated that he wasn't a 'proper' Palitoy collector because he didn't have a set of the first 12 sealed. A very harsh judgement to make I thought, but also one that I would think very few would agree with.
So basically, does it make you anyless of a collector than the next when you collect this way?

The low-end collector;
The high-end collector;
The bell-end collector.
The first two co-exist harmoniously, it's only when the third is involved that problems begin.
