Re: What would you collect?

I am a collector by nature and genetics. I love my Star Wars stuff, its not just action figures for me Its cards and lightsabers, games (I have a ton of board games Star Wars and non Star Wars) and anything else I find Star Wars.  Besides that I collect books, Titanic stuff, jeweley and beads (as a hobby/ hoping buisness), glassware (mostly milk glass), vinyl reccords and vintage hair accesories ( started as a gift from my great grandmother.) I loves stuff. My sister says I collect dressers, but that's just because I have 5.

3. Anything Philadelphia Eagles (we had a bad season this year but there will be others!)

Re: What would you collect?

I like books.  I have a lot of Star Wars books.  (The entire Legacy so far).  Only recently I've started buying them as opposed to borrowing from the library.

Re: What would you collect?

BOOKS! Man do I have Star Wars books. I started out reading them from the library, but they didn't have enough to keep me satisfied. So I started buying... like today I got The Rule of Two.

Re: What would you collect?

I didnt like it all that much, The Aliens really didnt seem like they were much of a threat, They got takin down faster then storm troopers. But The Predalien and Wolf Predator (I think thats his name) were pretty kick ***.

And again it was too short, look at the previous alien/predator movies (excluding avp1) they were like 2 & a1/2 hours long. think about it, a long movie is better, if they started makin the star wars movies 94 minutes they probably wouldnt do so good.

Re: What would you collect?

I collect Star wars .......... everything and mainly B.F and Living Dead Dolls. Also b grade horror movies and Tolkien books. My wife collects Hello Kitty stuff and we are starting to collect Nightmare before Christmas stuff too. We also collect Tattoos though they are on our body as aposed to on a shelf. I am really intrested in collecting the Droids and Ewok figures though they are getting hard to come by in a decent price range. I have one Ship from the Droid series and plan to get my first carded figures in the next two months. Japan is such a great country for people who like to collect stuff. We have days when we go into Osaka or Tokyo just to go to Toy and Collectors stores!

" Hi!"

Re: What would you collect?

Oh wow peter. I am impressed. Have you posted a pic of your collection anywhere?

Re: What would you collect?

Its rather agrivating that canada doesnt get the good stuff, and when it does occasionly, the people selling it a jerks and way over price it, except for my local comic store, every where else sucks

For example we've all seen that lobot figure thats always there when you go to look, it never gets sold. Well at this place at edmonton that little worthless thing was like 30$ no lies, I dont think any one would even pay beyond that more normal price of 9.99$ cdn for that well i wouldnt, I mean come on its lobot he sucks

Re: What would you collect?

i know! tell me about it! In britain , it costs £5.99 for a star wars figure. Doctor Who figures are like £6.25. neutral

Re: What would you collect?

I collect a lot of stuff, mainly books.  I have started to get more star wars books, and have recently purchased the entire bounty hunter wars series.  I also collect model horses (like 50 of them) and cars (to many to count).  I don't know if you can collect fish, but I have been getting more and more of them, they are really intresting tongue  I used to collect the TY beanie babies, but you don't see them around that much any more.  Anyhow, I really envy all you people who have the action figures, i haven't got around to getting any yet, and none of the stores carry any boba fett figures sad  Oh well...

Re: What would you collect?

Sorry CA. I only have the one Boba Figure, because when I get to the stores they never seem to have the good ones either. Those I find mostly on Ebay for redunkulous prices. Collections take time, pacence and money. Sometimes its good to talk about your collection around others so then they can get stuff for you. I've have some peices "donated".

Re: What would you collect?

Besides Boba Fett stuff, hmm lets see.  Well I got a good amount of Clone Troopers, and some Jedi.  I used to be big into the 3 3/4 figures but have since stopped since I was running out of room.  I do collect Resident Evil figures, and am really getting into the Sideshow Medicom Hot Toys 12" lines.   Did start collectin MOTU things but I had started to late in the show and it ended up getting cancelled about a year later. 

I did/do like MUSCLE figures and Ultimate Muscle figs, and also buy into the manga's of various series.  That is all that I can think of atm though.

Re: What would you collect?

I used to collect all SW stuff I could get my hands on and had a complete kenner 1995- Ep 1 collection sold it thou in my comic n toy shop

In a completist so have to stick to just a few things.

Now just Boba Fett classic films stuff am a completist well nearly..

             Classic SW autos in person. over 100 now.
             Classic SW lego anything from the classic films but not USC or remakes unless vastly better.
             SW comics have everything DH have puclished apart from the 4th Toy R Us giveaway circa ep2.
             Kevin smith stuff have over 200 items inc Crew Jackets and scripts.
