    I used to collect beanie babies, crazy bones, and Magic cards a long time ago but now all I mainly collect is Spider-man comics.

    yes, rosebud frozen peas. Full of country goodness and GREEN PEANESS. wait that's terrible, I QUIT!

    oh what luck, there's a french fry stuck in my beard.

          DVD's - I'm finally getting a respectable collection that ranges from horror to comedy to drama to everything else in between. Mostly horror I believe because that's my favorite genre.

          Books - I read everything from fantasy to satires to horrors to cookbooks to dictionarys. My bookcase is actually buckling right now and I'm in sore need of a new one.


          Barbie Dolls! - I collect all the holiday Barbies along with their matching Christmas tree ornament for the last 14 years or so.

          I've been meaning to start a collection of Wonder Woman memorabilia but there's just so much stuff I don't even know where to start actually. I do have a couple items here and there but nothing worthy of collection status.

              I collect LP's, 45's, Cassette tapes, etc ...

              But the one thing I am a hardcore collector of is Atari Game Cartridges. I still have my original Atari 7800 that I got for Christmas of 1984. Originally, I just had around 12 games, but over the years, I've been collecting, and I now have 102 Atari 2600 games, and 5 Atari 7800 Games

                me? I collect too much. but mostly it's all about movies, angels and Beanie Babies...preferably the bears. at last count the bears are well into the 150's and won't fit into my big yellow box.

                    Music and movie/TV t-shirts (pretty rare ones, but I wear them), and a few hockey/football jerseys. Also, most of my concert and sports ticket stubs from over the years.

                    I'll take some pictures of the shirts and post them someday.

                          I collect video games. Lots and lots of video games. I own an Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Mattel Intellivision, NES, Sega Genesis, Super NES, Sega Saturn, Sony Playstation, Virtual Boy, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, Sony Playstation 2, Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy, and Game Boy Advance...I collect games for all of them

                          You collect so many videogames and have a picture of MegaMan as your icon.

                          You are hereby my rival! XD

                          As for what I collect:

                          I'm also a big videogame collector. I've got games for the Atari, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, Game Gear, Gameboy, GBA, DS, PSP, PS1, PS2, Xbox, CDi, Neo Geo Pocket, oh yeah, and the Sega CD.

                          I of course have all of those systems, EXCEPT THE ATARI >_< For some stupid reason I can never come across an Atari (Yeah yeah, should hit ebay....) Also in the Gameboy department I have the orginal, pocket, Color, and Advance. I don't own an SP or Light 'YET'

                          (Pop Quiz: How many of you know what a Gameboy Light is? ^_^)

                          As for what else? Stuffed Animal Pandas. Got about 15 now.

                          I collect stuffed animal Black cat/Panthers. I had around 62 last I counted em. I think I got about 3 more since then.

                          I collect Anime Mascots (Stuffed animals of em at least)

                          Some Anime
                          Anime Merchdise (mostly figures)
                          Pikachu stuff (Not alot though)
                          Some Manga
                          Old cartoon movies/shows.
                          Videogame merch

                          The thing about me is I don't go out and buy any videogame I can get my hands on. I only buy games I either like and want to play, or if it's just that rare, or to complete a collection. (Well or if it's really cheap, I'm talking like 2 bucks)

                          An example would be the First TMNT game for the NES. I think the game sucks (sorry fans of the game) But it was a buck, and it completes my Turtles game collection.

                          I also collect CDs and Movies based on Videogames. My movie collection is still suffering a bit. (I mean I don't have the Mortal Kombats! How could I?)

                          What I mean by CDs is things like "White Knuckle Scorin" the CD Nintendo released a while back. I also have the two albums by the band "14 year old girls"

                          Oh I collect some books too, like the Resident Evil ones, The Unicorn Cronicles, Animorphs, and I hope to get all the Xanth someday.

                          My biggest collection though is of anything MEGAMAN. Not only do I plan on getting every single game he has (inculding only released in Japan games and re-releases for other systems) I snatch up anything MegaMan I can get my hands on!

                          Though admitingly I slack off when it comes to the Battle Network stuff. I'm just not a big fan of that incarnation.

                            I'm a total packrat. I'll collect anything that catches my eye. I'm not really one for complete sets of anything anymore. If I see a figure of a favourite character, I'll buy it, without really caring if I get the rest or not.
                            I used to collect Beanie Babies, Pokemon figures, fast food toys...
                            Right now I'm super into collecting art books, designer toys (like Dunny), Richard Adams novels, and foreign Disney movie/Broadway musical soundtracks. And if anyone can provide a link or give me some info on the latter, I'd really appreciate it. I found an Italian site with a lot of foreign soundtracks, but I'm not fluent in the language.
                            I am deranged, but so, so playful!

                                I colelct video games (which i have my whole list of what i have, no games specifically listed, but by systems) but in another post of collections. I also collect action figures (although i do less of it cuz im big into game collecting but i got tons of old ninja turtles, heman, ghostbusters and tons of other stuff). I also have a pretty large collection of DVDs (mostly new but lots of tv show season dvds and horror movies like friday the 13th, freddy, amityville, etc..) as well as a GI joe movie on VHS and a transformers movie, both bought long ago when I was very young (im 23 now), not taped from tv or something.

                                  Well growing up I just threw everything away, though I collected X-men Toys and X-men cards.

                                  However, now I do keep everything I get. I have a good bit of instruction manuals, and I keep all my boxes for my games.

                                      Music on vinyl and cd mostly (a few 8-tracks, my stereo amp has a player so why not. And at 50 cents a tape I can't resist), also movie, tv and music stuff on VHS and DVD.

                                      I'm not much into video games but I have a Namco system with Original Pac-Man, Rally-X racing, Bosconian, DigDug and Galaxian;

                                      I bought my older sister a Namco system too. Hers is pretty much the same except it's got Ms. Pacman instead of Pacman.
