    Well....number one on every HTF'ers list is a no-brainer ... obviously DVDs.
    What about other things? What other "collections" do you possess?
    I'm confined to pretty much media products .... DVDs, VHS, and CDs.
    Holmes & Watson perhaps summed it up best ......
    "This chap seems to be a rather odd fellow. A sort of "collector of collections"." -- Dr. John H. Watson
    "Yes, Watson. I shall write a monograph one day on the obnoxious habit of accumulating useless trivia." -- Sherlock Holmes

    Besides CDs and DVDs, I collect action figures. My collection is mostly made up of Star Wars figures. I used to collect trading cards and comic books, but now I only buy them every now and then.

    I also collect new line of star wars figures, but more for the artistic side rather than value. I do like the primitive look of the vintage figures, but I don't collect them.

    I was going to pull a joke and say that I collect HTF member's e-mail address' for spamming purposes, but thought better of it. :b

    DVDs. [​IMG]
    all Star Wars books and comics, no figurines or toys though. I should qualify the books by excluding the children's line of books (Young Apprentice etc), comics I only get the individual issues and not the TPBs; where there's a choice between an art cover and a photo cover I only get the art.
    can't say I really "collect" anything else, I have plenty of CDs but I wouldn't say I "collect" them.

    "I collect spores, molds and fungus"

    I love buying books, I have a spare room that looks like a library, with well over 2000 books, 25 years worth of collecting, inc some rare paperbacks from the 1950's 'Forbidden Planet', 'This Island Earth', first paperback edition of 'Childhoods End' (1953) etc.

    All lovingly indexed in my database.

    I'm far more proud of my book collection than my 300 dvds.

    I also collected comics when I was young, but sadly threw most of them away, mostly Marvel, but I still have a box full of Mad magazines somewhere.

    Dungeons&Dragons toys, manufactured @ 1983-84. I'm still looking for a replacement Hook Horror Evil Monster to replace the one I had as a boy. I think I have three Warduke:Evil Fighters, one open, one MOC, and One MOC on a french/englais card. I think it's from Quebec.
    Anyway, If anybody see's a good conditon Fortress of Fangs anywhere, let me know[​IMG]

    I can't afford to collect anything besides DVDs. I was collecting other things before DVDs became an obsession such as Simpsons figures, Baseball Cards (sold my collection however), Toy memorabilia from the 60's & 70's, Comics (20,000) and Lasers (over 1000). As you can see, my apartment is basically a warehouse.

    Besides DVD's and the occasional laser disc, I collect comic books and lead miniatures (for role-playing games).

    And when I'm feeling lazy, I collect dust.
