    I either lost or threw out some VHS recordings of some movies from 1996 with Oklahoma City area commercials on them.

      Oh yeah. I brought a G.I. Joe tape I bought at a thrift store in Georgia back home found out it was already broken. What bad luck man.

            I used to "collect" VHS movies until DVDs came out. I sold them all. I then used to collect DVD movies until I got a PS3 a couple years ago, I sold a lot of my DVDs and bought some Blu-Rays but I think I'm just gonna sell off the blu-rays. I'm gonna stick to downloading and having an HD movie library on my external hard drive.

            Everything I used to collect, I still have (Beer bottle caps (dont ask), comic books, pokemon cards, star wars toys/merchandise, video games, GI Joes) although the only thing I still truly collect are video games, old and new.

                More than a half of my dragon figurines have been either lost or broke. Stuff from the 70's/80's... none survived my aunts wrath.

                  I used to collect board games but had to abandon most ofthem at a thrift store when I moved from Montana to North Carolina. I was pressed for money a couple of years ago and had to sell my prized Dark Tower electronic board on ebay. Makes me sad to even think about it.

                            I used to collect just about anything when I was growing up, but all of it got lost/tossed/left behind at one point or another. Some examples include;
                            tv guides
                            readers digest
                            keychains
                            garbage pail kid cards
                            sticker books (those magazine-like ones, usually published by panini)
                            matchbox/hot wheels
                            legos
                            signature*WARNING: The above post may be highly opinionated, read at your own risk.

                                I used to collect Star Wars Miniatures, but I got pissed when I bought hundreds of booster packs and never found the Luke figure that I had wanted, yet had copies of everything else. I think I finally bought it individually online for a cheap price, but I was so disappointed by the experience I stopped collecting them entirely when the new pack came out. Plus it was straying less from the movies and more into the expanded universe garbage.

                                    This really bugs me, but I had just about every Transformers figure, just about every He-Man and She-Ra figure, and just about every Voltron figure. A year or so ago, we cleared out our basement. So, I thought I'd find everything. But I didn't. I don't have any idea of what happened to everything. But I seem to have quite recent memories of seeing the stuff. Who knows. I do really miss my Castle Greyskull and original Matchbox Voltron.
                                    Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

                                          I used to love Barbie when I was young and had a large collection of Barbies and accessories, although I still have some of my Barbie things. I had given away my barbie dream cottage and thrown out a HEAP of barbies and playlets. I have seriously regretted this ever since.
