    What collection(s) do you have that are not home theater or music related?

    I timidly collect records. My most prized is a copy of White Light/White Heat first pressing, listened to, but with the shrink wrap and sticker still on. Not worth a ton, but it means a lot to me.

    I like reading, though I don't have a lot of time for it right now, so I'd say books are something I collect.

    I have most of the Star Wars Lego's. They're pretty damn cool looking.

    I wish I could say I collected guitars.

    I play a lot of computer games, so I guess I could say I collect them.

    Used to collect:

    Comic books - I ended up buying too many every month and finally decided to spend it elsewhere. Good thing too, because I have a hard enough time saving up for all the HT toys I want. Now if I won the lottery, I think I'd be buying again.

    Still collect:

    Books, mostly fiction - I read alot and buy my books so my book collection gets bigger and bigger, although I weed out the bad books I've read every once in a while.

    I don't consider them home-theater related (since I started collecting well before the advent of home theaters), but my main collectible is movie memorabilia; specifically, movie posters, lobby cards and the like. I've also been known to collect books and magazines.

    I have lots of NJ Devils memorabilia including every media guide the franchise ever put out going back to the K.C. Scouts of 1974.

    Also I collect Stephen King 1st Editions and rare or signed books. I have every book he's ever written in First Edition Hardcover, as well as 18 signed books (6 in person) and a collection of every Dark Tower book signed and limited. In addition I have books about King as well, some limited, some rare, some long out of print. The collection is at about 90 books or so now give or take a few.

    My favorite collection of all. The Simpsons. I currently have all of the action figures, board games, and alot of other merchandise that I love. It sure is expensive to have this and a DVD collection though. Perhaps its time to pursue another job besides washing dishes.
