It seems like this is the right time of year to reflect on our favorite purchases of 2018...

What Archie art, collectibles, and/or comics did you purchase?

It's been a great year! I became active on the CGC boards, joined Instagram to show off my collection, and joined this Archie Fan Forum to connect with other collectors and fans. And, as some of you know, I've been focused on collecting vintage Archie merchandise, and my favorite find, my holy grail, is *drum roll* ... Archie's Car by Aurora, c. 1969. I've been searching for this model in mint condition for 20 years.

I would love to see a photo of what the actual plastic figures of Archie, Veronica, and Hot Dog look like. And it does make me wonder whether this kit was specially created as a piece of Archie merchandise, or whether the car itself was recycled from some earlier Aurora kit. That company made a LOT of automobile, aircraft, and military vehicle kits in its history.
