I just find it interesting to see the things people like to collect. For example my friend's parents collect clocks and they have a bunch of clocks inside their house and it's kind of cool actually.

I collect mainly video games, books, and movies (mainly horror).
I would like to expand my Looney Tunes collection to figurines and the sort and not just the DVD sets.
(mods feel free to close if pointless)

I don't really collect anything per sei, but I can be quite the packrat and choose not to get rid of anything, no matter how old it is, no matter how much I don't use it, no matter how much I don't need it.

Good question, I always try collecting something, but some days later I just won't continue it, I am not that patient so I end up always spending money on what I know I won't collect / use/ whatevs.
Except for games, I think I collect some games (Tomb Raider plz :P) and Super Mario Games, and it's done LOL

Batman and Tomb Raider-related material, be it clothes, games, comics, figures, DVDs/Blu-ray, etc.

DVDs and Blu-ray Discs in general.

And I'm hoping to start collecting anything related to Joy Division and La Roux, and maybe posters for my favourite films.

Since i was a kid,i was very much into comic books and i have a collection of more than 5000 issues (including paperbacks and graphic novels.)The vast majority is from the superhero genre but i was also into manga and independents from both the U.S. and Europe.
I stopped collecting though since around 2000-02 when i felt kind of burned out with the comic book industry in general...
I have also a "decent" music collection from a variety of genres.

For the last 10 years i'm mostly collecting video games,asian movies and soundtracks.:)

Most of my life I've had a weakness for high end cutlery. The past three years or so I find myself seeking out and acquiring some of the harder to come by firearms. Both are rather pricey afflictions for a person to have and for a while now I've been unable to pursue either one.

On the weird side of things, I feel drawn to find the ultimate backpack and in endeavoring to accomplish that task I have amassed a collection of the things.

Apart from the usual stuff (books, DVDs, games), I mainly collect model railroads. Generally, only new ones, and I convert them all to my preferred couplings and electric systems, but I have way more than I can have driving around at any one time by now.

it fascinates me how folks add games/dvd's to "things they collect" :vlol: (i just buy the stuff i want to play/watch ergo not a collector ;)

i collect the following
1, Comics based on official licensed products such as tv/movies/games series
2, Star Trek figures and ships (TOS PRIME Universe,not fake Trek 2009) :D
3, Trading Cards based on tv/movies series i like :D

The Barbies I totally get; MLP scares me. :D I loved the collector's Barbies, but I knew that if I bought even one, it would turn into a whole houseful. You've got some really nice ones there.

If money were no object, I would like to collect those little Limoges boxes. (http://www.nordling-underwood.com/sales/CHAPINAVE/Collection%20of%20Limoges%20Boxes.JPG) You can collect a ton and still not need more than one cabinet. :D

Random things...my ex brought me a box set of Narnia books identical to the ones I had as a child.. I have several dolls that are the same vintage as my childhood ones. So I guess I am replicating my childhood.

I also collect TR stuff. I really am sad that my TR1/2 walkthrough book with the cutout Lara dress up doll hadn't fallen to pieces. I have it...just in a pile of sheets. :(

Uncle Scrooge is probably my favourite too, but moreso I'm a fan of Keno don Rosa. :D A friend of mine has collected all the first editions of these albums, but I don't care much about that, I just don't want to read the stories.

I probably have about two meters (when piled up) worth of Donald Duck magazines... Still read them at breakfast :D Not too fond of many of the more recent ones though... They used to be better. :(

I still pick my books now and then to read before sleeping, especially. They're a big part of my childhood and I know some of the stories by heart, but I love reading and re-reading them. :D You're totally right, I stopped buying them because they're not as good. They seem totally forced and not amusing anymore, which is sad. I've been looking all over for a story... Uncle Scrooge has a chest full of coins that belong to which of his ancestors, and they're magical. Everytime they're rubbed it takes them back to the time these lived and it's a different story everytime but in the end they all connect... I miss reading this story! Do you know it?

I sure hope not, because my seat number has been on every ticket. :p Even despite the few times I nicked my neighbour's card instead, they should be onto me pretty quickly.
The only problem is that I've never properly recorded where I got all the cards... I guess I should start doing that from now on.
