Anything in particular that you collect?

I collect the following (I do, and I have);

Star Wars 12 inch figures.
Transformers (The New Alternator Versions, The Masterpiece)
Aliens Vs Predator 12 inch sets.
Zoids (for the sake of putting them together too)

I also have;

An ED 209 from Robocop.
The USS Defiant from DS9.
And about ten million books. Alright, that last one, you might tell, was over the top. But the rest is real. Whatcha got?

I am more of an eclectlic collector. I see things that appeal to me and pick them up, or others know what I am quite interested in and Borthdays and Christmasses are sorted.

My biggest collection is probably Simpsons figures followed by unusual cuddly toys. I got caught up in that Robosapien thing, so I have Robo 1 (Robo Homer) Robo 2, Robo dog and Robo Dino.
Also have a lot of little clockwork wind up toys and a couple of robots (kit builds) that I bought in Tandy

I did collect a lot of bionicles but a nephew took a shine to them.. Also have a lot of little clockwork wind up toys.

I collect gadgets too.

I used to collect coffee jars. Not different brands, but all Gold Blend. My favourite tipple. :) i had amassed about 200 of them until OH persuaded me that perhaps the bottle bank should be paid a visit. It'll started by collecting a few to use as containers for stuff, but then it was a bit of fun trivia to see how many I could a mass. and to see how much coffee I actually drunk in 5 years. :)

Wow coffee jars. That's amazing. :) I never thought about collecting things like that, I suppose I wouldn't know what to do with them.

I used to collect computers - the spare room was full of old, and new kit - as well as manuals, software and all the stuff that goes with them. Unfortunately when we had our first child my wife insisted we convert it to a nursery - so the lot had to go :(

I also use to collect Star Wars Lego - but this has stopped now because I just don't have the room for them all.

I also have a more general Star Wars collection of videos, DVDs and other material.

Oh, and there's the porn collection ;)

One of my friends has a great collection of Snowstorms. She must have hundreds. They are all on display round the top of the picture rails in the two downstairs rooms...they are so fabulously kitsch.

All sorts, of shapes and sizes. Got one that holds a pint of tea/coffee from Paramount Park in Canada, that has a spongebob square pants face. Some with maps and scenes from where ever we've been. I usually have quite a few given to me at easter with eggs too, so have kitkat, twirl etc. as well. The best one I have is a starwars one, that my youngest decorated for me for my birthday last year :)

LOL :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

What magazines you collect? I used to get the Star Wars one, and the Star Trek one as well, but stopped getting them after two years. I have tonnes and tonnes of comics though, from Aliens, to Star Wars, to Farscape and Predator.

I've got a small collection of mugs from places that I've never been to, including one from Didim, which I've never heard of and can't even find on Google Maps, and one from East Portlemouth, which apparently is
The jewel on the east side of the Salcombe Estuary with beautiful beaches, a fascinating history and peaceful coastal and country walks.

This has been a ThinBoy quality post

I used to have the first 2 years worth editions of a cult magazine called TV Zone, dunno if you can still get it, I gave them to my nephew a while back, not seen them since.

Can I have a play with your USS Defiant? :D

I used to get TV Zone. I have to wonder if it is still available. I used to get all my TV information from it before I realised most of it can now be found on the internet. lol :rofl: But I collected that for a few years myself, there were a few others like it too.

You can play with my Klingon vessel as well if you like :pp: ;) :D :D
