What do you collect?


Recommended Posts

I've seen a few topics about collecting things, like the die cast cars and Ed's toys.

So it got me wondering what else people here collect.


I have a lot of Texaco collectibles, including all the #28 die-cast cars back to when Davey Allison drove for us. (anyone interested I'll sell 'em dirt cheap)


Now, my sons and I are collecting all the Halo Action Figures, but that's about it.


Include links to samples so we can see what you are talking about.

My big thing for the past year and a bit has been board games. My collection is well over fifty right now and probably well over 60 if i wanted to count it up right now ;).


There's a lot of interestingly collectible board games, though I don't tend to help the value because I like to own and then play these titles. It's a lot of fun. I love board gaming more than video gaming actually, but it's easier to get people together for a round of video gaming ;).

I'm a very "obsessive" person so whenever I get one of something I like it is suddenly a collection... but I'm trying hard to break that habit...


Past/sometimes present collections includes:

Pez Dispensers

Chess Sets

Star Wars figures


'64/'65 Worlds Fair Memorabilia

Animation Cells


Current collections:


Walt Disney World stuff

Arcade stuff

I have about 70 Sinatra discs and albums that I treasure and listen to on a regular basis - the Chairman goes well with Links on the 'Box. I also grab the occasional vintage repro GI Joe when they come out with cool 60's frogmen or talking pilot figures. I also have several SideShow Toys Monster figures that are very well crafted. On the same monster theme, about 75% of my dvd collection is horror-based. I love to be scared!


I also seem to be adding to my collection of children - up to three now!

DVD's for sure. TV shows on dvd is a pretty big hobby of mine these days. I have a small collection of film cells that i add to every once and a while as well. And now because of Ed and Tim, I now have a growing collection of Qee's.


In the past i collected action figures, comics, TCG's, CCG's and so forth

In the past I used to have a few large collections - comics, Star Wars stuff, etc... Lately, I've been into a lot of little "micro" collections, meaning that for a short period I'll be really into collecting one small group of items. For example, just the Star Wars "Unleashed" figures. I find that I like these smaller collections much more. It's cheaper, easier to maintain/store, and actually attainable.


My recent binges have been Buffy-related. The comics, action figures, and DVD's (including the UK DVD's in the ultra-cool packaging). I'm a sucker for cool packaging, so it's just killing me that I won't be getting that Alien head DVD set.

Allen. For God's sake, man; either open and play that Otogi, or give it to me - I can't find a sensibly priced PAL copy anywhere.


As tragically over the top as my DVD collection is, it still takes up less space than my CDs do, and my vinyl takes up 5 times as much space as my laserdiscs as well. Still, all of it put together only takes up about as much as my wife's book collection.

I have always been a dabbler when it comes to collecting. I have some boxes of comic books now mixed in with Cal's. I don't collect any one line of toys faithfully, there just seems to be so many different ones out there. Dana Carvey did a comedy special where he made the point that even having a hand in a different position meant another $9.99 to pay out.


I would imagine that my biggest collection is of my Pokemon stuff. And now I have started collecting Neopets things. I have a hard time passing up Transformers when I see them, and just picked up a bunch of them for Cal. I have always had a book collection.

I've never collected anything, but I am prepared to start collecting that Alternator line of Transformers (like the WRX I have). As I mentioned before, I'll be picking up the red vipor this weekend, and the Jeep as soon as I come across it. I really hope Hasbro keeps to thier release schedule, and I hope they continue the line.

The funny thing is that I wasn't a collector of anything (I don't really count CDs, or DVD) until I ran across the Qees last year. And originally I bought one of them without the intention of buying more...


I now have about 220 of them, so somewhere along the way I became a collector.
