What do you collect?

Recommended Posts

I suppose it could be called a collection but everywhere I go on holiday or a short trip I pick up a mug or two along with some shot glasses.

Memorys


Signed, rare, 1st edition books
 

Books are not books unless you read them, they are merely assets of a cluttered mind

Notebooks.. I have no idea why, I just have a strange obsession with them, I don't even write in them...

 

Funnily enough I don't like Moleskine.

Snowglobes:

I was going around the Caribbean and wanted to bring back a memento - and realised I never collected anything.  I decided to get a snow globe.  It became a joke that I collected snowglobes, and had 1.  Then people started buying me them, and now I somehow seem to have a collection from the places I go.  It's VERY tongue in cheek

 

Shot Glasses:

Anywhere I go, if they sell a branded shot glass, I will buy it.

 

Baseballs:

As above - location or commemorative baseballs.

 

Optimus Prime:

I used to have basically every released Transformer.  This became ridiculous, so I gave them all to my nephew.  I kept every Optimus Prime, and now have pretty much every version heading back to the 80s.

Pez:

Dunno, just collect them.

Not necessarily something I technically collect for myself but I did snow globes for my daughter, kinda made my trips away a little more fun. It never turned into a big collection and sometimes I couldn't find one in the country I was in but I thought it was pretty cool, in fact I think by the end I appreciated it more than she did :p

I like finding them, and yeah sometimes that's tricky - it's not a mission, but I do like spending a little while looking around naff stores ;)

Console Games & Hardware

I have quite a games collection going: C16/Plus4, C64, SEGA Maser System, SEGA Mega Drive, SEGA Mega CD, SEGA Saturn, SEGA Game Gear, Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation / PocketStation, PS2, PS3, Gameboy, Wii, GC, DS & associated PC ports.

  • I've managed to collect most of the Sonic Team cartridge and CD games for most UK platforms now - all in very good condition and working :)
  • I own most of the Metal Gear games released (multi platform) with the exception of PlayStation Portable titles & NES. I've even got (somewhere) the PC-CD UK versions of MGS and MGS Integral.
  • I also have a ludicrous number of Final Fantasy PAL/UK titles spanning up to PlayStation 2 era inc. PC-CD versions of FFVII & FFVIII (boxed).
  • I've got all of the SEGA Mickey Mouse * of Illusion games on 8bit / 16bit including dual titles (except GG as I have the MS versions).
  • Most of the Halo titles except for Xbox One
  • I own quite a few UK/PAL Xbox 360's - 2005 to 2012 (around 8) & various limited edition controllers.

I have some old computer chips. I tried for years to get them all and it created a mess so I got rid of a lot of them and kept the basics. I have some old Intel 286's and some old Cyrix chips as well.

 

I also collect "found" dimes. My wife and I have this "thing" we find dimes all the time. Yeah we come across pennies too but mostly dimes. We keep the dimes we find. :)

Do you go for literally every version, or just the main ones? There's a lot of merchandise, the non-transforming Titan figures, Angry Birds TFs has an Optimus . . .

 

I still collect TFs, and Prime is one of my favorites. I used to go for every unique mold Optimus Prime (usually don't get repaints), but these days I narrowed it to unique mold mainline Primes.

I go for the main lines, obviously - then I make a judgement call on others based upon how different they are, how well they are made, how they look, how rare, etc.
