Hi Mark and welcome to the forum.
I have noticed most of the new guys are loose figure collectors. ( sensible ) :)

Sensible? Hardly!
Each to their own, and I can see the appeal of MOC and all that. But in my personal opinion, toys should be played with. I like being able to handle my figs.

Hi Andrew, I'm just down the road from you. I grew up in Hayes, I work in Uxbridge and now living in Stoke Poges.

I'm similiar to you with the loose figures, I'm now about 8 figures away from complete. I don't have a character focus, but I am starting to get into my variants.
