Our This time round, we're going down under for Member of the Month again. It's Dinkydi.

Dinkydi has been a huge asset to the site, being very active in all our diecast forums, as well as contributing data on Hallmark for ToyPedia in the form of lists and images (I couldn't find a big enough image of your Cadillac avatar to use here, Dinkydi, so I used one of your pics of a Hallmark Corvette instead!)

He's also a member of both the Dinky and Corgi groups and has recently been one of a number of you who've helped out with feedback on the site. So a big thank-you to Dinkydi for being such a great member of the community!

Our This time round, our Member of the Month is JimLindsay.

A long-time collector and document-er of Wells Brimtoy, Jim has been diligently cataloguing the classic brand for ToyPedia, creating lists of their products and a structure for the data, and taking and uploading photos from his own collection.

Thanks to Jim, we're well on the way to having a complete catalogue of Brimtoy in ToyPedia (of course, if you have a favourite brand you'd like to see on there and would like to do the same as Jim, just drop me an email on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Our Member of the Month this time round is toy-tek.

A huge Tekno fan, and a member of our marketplace partner NAMAC,he’s given us access to his vast reserves of Tekno-related data, including picture and details about colour variants, all of which has helped build up the Tekno pages on ToyPedia. He's also been one of the most enthusiastic marketplace proponents, having already listed lots of the fantastic Tekno Models he has up for sale!

We also particularly liked how when we were chatting to him last, he mentioned that the market reminded him of the early days of eBay - back when it was fun!

So a big thanks to toy-tek, for getting so involved and congrats on being Member of the Month!

August 2011 - The Toy Collector Market is Go!

The Market Update

Heads up, everybody! The Toy Collector market is now fully live and accessible to all site users!

After spending a while in Beta, working on last minute glitch-type things and getting the features fine-tuned, we're now ready to take the wraps off fully. As of now, any Toy Collector member can list an item for sale or buy an item, and we hope you all enjoy doing so! All visitors to the site will now be able to browse, although you'll need to be a member to buy or sell.

Our Member of the Month for August is Karl.

A highly active forum poster since he joined the site, Karl is also a member of the Corgi Toys Group. On the forums, Karl is a reaissance man, posting about dieast vehicles and plenty of other stuff too, like Elastolin castles. But we particularly like how he's always there helping others with advice or answers to their questions - after all, TC is a community which partly exists so newcomers can find information about their stuff (and the more-expert can fill in gaps in their knowledge!) And Karl's amazing research skills have often yielded answers to many of the knottiest questions!

So thanks to Karl, for being such a standard-bearer for TC's values, we're happy he's here!
