WHAT ARE YOUR 1:6 HOBBY GOALS FOR 2020?

I was thinking about this myself today, and decided to settle on a few primary projects and to try to maintain focus on those projects rather than allowing myself to be distracted by fleeting "that would be cool! No, wait, that would be even more cool" ideas.

Here are my 2020 goals (at the moment):

DIORAMAS:
1. Build a "laboratory" diorama patterned after the one constructed by our late friend MiskatonicNick. Here are a couple of Nick's Flickr photos I'm using as inspiration:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/toyville/6821953908/
https://www.flickr.com/photos/toyville/8334196626/

(This objective is also influenced by AMMO member LeStryge's recent kitbashed lab equipment for his Doctor Evil scenes.)

2. Complete required maintenance and finish up minor details on existing dioramas as needed for photo-shoots.

PHOTOGRAPHY:
1. Transition back to a DSLR camera from a Point-n-Shoot camera.
2. Successfully complete another A Doll A Day photography project, posting online to the Dolly Market Forum and Flickr
3. Re-animate my moribund Flickr presence. Yeah, I know, Flickr is almost like beating a dead horse, but as long as it's still twitching....

PHOTO-STORIES:
1. Revive and continue my Tales from the Dollie Dungeon photo-story.
2. Weave my stand-alone vignettes and GI Joe / Action Figure stories in to a single sprawling photo-story narrative.
3. Complete photos and story for Willie B. the Traveling VAM and send him on his way to the next host.

FORUMS:
1. Maintain an active presence at Dolly Market and complete the A Doll A Day 2020 Challenge.
2. Maintain an active presence at AMMO (Action Man Mobile Ops).
3. Re-engage in groups and find new doll, toy, and miniature photographers to follow on Flickr
4. Visit and post at Figurvore at least twice a week... even if it's like listening to my own echo as I whistle through a graveyard.

ACQUISITIONS:
1. At the moment I'm not really feeling the need for any additional figures, other than, I'm thinking I would like to add a few Poppy Parker or similarly glamorous Integrity figures to my line-up. But that will require an unexpected financial windfall, because, y'know... $$$.   Shocked

2. I'll be on the lookout for some cool clothes for my seamless figures.

Okay, so...

WHAT ARE YOUR 1:6 HOBBY GOALS FOR 2020?

Actually I have no 2020 goals at the present time... I do things on impulse... lol!

I'm a different kind of collector than most...I mainly only collect vintage Gijoes and accessories I
had as a child...1965-66 to 1972....Mainly that has been accomplished already...
I tried collecting the Gijoe Club, 40th Joes etc. but it did not feel right to me so I ended up selling everything off...
That's where I've been at for a few years now... But who knows what the future will bring...

But your goals Dave seem very exciting! Hope you accomplish them!

A great set of very worthwhile goals Dave. As with everything it all too often boils down to time and money..we've all love more of both! lol!

I'd class myself as an impulse collector like Jim. I find it so easy to shoot off on a tangent but lately I have to agree with..

My 2020 Action man goal is to 'play' more. I think one of my favourite aspects of the hobby is doing comics. I really enjoy creating Joe and Hank's little adventures as it feels like the adult version of how we used to play as kids. The adult problem with this however is it's hard to find the time and enthusiasm sometimes. This is best illustrated by the fact that over xmas I've been finishing a comic about Scotty the travelling MAM's visit to SKJ HQ. The comic was actually planned during his visit in November 2018!! Rolling Eyes  Hollywood block busters have a shorter lead time than my comics! lol!

So hopefully 2020 will be a busier. more productive year for the gang at SKJ HQ!

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

My mam 2020 plans are:

Visit some more castles that I haven’t visited before, off corse take a camera and a mam or even a bad guy along with me.

Visiting London in mid April for two and a half weeks. I’ll be taking  a camera and a mam or even a bad guy along with me.

Visiting York beginning of June for one week. I’ll be taking  a camera and a mam or even a bad guy along with me.

I’m also going to be going to Spain for a week, Staying over with a couple who I met on our last cruise. I’m going to be taking my camera and Gangrene and his son.

When the weather gets better I’m going to maybe do a mam outside story.

Interesting question.

1. Finish my dio..at least the main build as I think I will be adding odds n ends for a long time to come.
2. Finish all of the figures that I have started.
3. Actually make some of the many many ideas that I have whizzing around in my head.
4. Be brave and get rid of all the surplus stuff that I seem to have acquired that I will never use.

There is probably more, but that's it off the top of my head.

Yeah, definitely these two! These are issues that seem to plague me, both mentally and in regard to physical space and organization, on an almost daily basis.

A few months? You've already had a few weeks on holiday! I pictured you spending much of that time ensconced in a leather wingback chair in front of a roaring fireplace, deep in thought, pipe smoke curling from your briar, a snifter of brandy in hand, fountain pen poised over a notebook, planning the coming year for your VAM/MAM/TBLeague world, and how that year will fit in to the longer arc of the coming decade. I expected you to be back with a bullet-point outline detailing the content and process for an impressive array of upcoming projects.
