    Default What do you collect?

    I was wondering what do members collect from there youth and in more recent times?
    It can be toys,games,books etc.

    Its mainly computer consoles and games for me.
    but i also buy old tv series like dr who.
    anything associated with lord of the rings etc.


    not sure if this is in the right place if its not perhaps a mod can move it to the right section.

    I used to collect vintage Action Man. I do collect on and off vintage and reissues of vintage Transformers and some modern Transformers (the ones that are updates of the originals that look more like the cartoon characters from the 1980s, not the rubbishy new films), Lego (built up a massive vintage town in 2006 - 2008, Castle Lego, U.F.O. from 1997 range, Alien Invasion, Star Wars Lego's), G.I.JOE figures and other vintage or modern toy lines or certain items from them. I did go through a phase mentioned on another thread of ZOIDS and also I did buy a few Character Building Doctor Who building block sets (its like Lego too). I also collected Mattel Big Jim for a while - especially the Space Series from 1985/6 which is very rare and their BIG JIM 004 Spy series, also very rare, Madel Man (the original Spanish version of Palitoy Bradgate Little Big Man) and the later 3 3/4 size Madelman space and aliens figures, Matchbox cars, both vintage ones and modern ones made by Mattel who now own them - I bought a 1969 Cadillac De Ville from the modern series from W.H. Smith just yesterday...depends on what the car is and its colour scheme really...)

    Wow,action man.I was thinking about that the other day.I really used to love collecting all the bits and pieces as a kid.Wished somehow I had kept it all,but it vanished many years ago now.

    Getting back to what I collect,Badges.Love badges.Cannot get enough of them especially those from the 60's through into the 80's.My favourite being a much loved early Tufty(my Hero) club badge.

    Dr Who dvd's as Dr who was a very very big part of my childhood.Just started this year to collect classic childrens television drama's on dvd as well.

    I collect books of old photographs of my city along with postcards of it from the 1960s to 1980s, I also have a small collection of Butiln's Filey memorabalia.
    The only thing to look forward to is the past

    Oh Crikey, what DON'T I collect?! My principle collecting interests are stamps (British mainly), old die-cast toy cars, old board games, vinyl records (mostly rock, folk and punk, but some '50s jazz as well) and old electrical goods from the '50s & '60s, especially working radios, record players, telephones and tape recorders. BUT I like collecting a plethora of other stuff as well, including Indian and Oriental artefacts, Mamod steam models, model railway stuff, antiques when I can afford them, and Goodness only knows I'd collect old cars and motorbikes as well if I but had the space to keep them! I've already got 5 classics ranging from late '50s to late '80s, in addition to the '89 Honda that we use as our everyday car. In essence, if I regard it as at all interesting, old, eclectic or unusual, I'll try to aquire it! Been doing this for most of my life- you should see my bedroom, I can barely get into it, piles of 1950s furniture and boxes upon boxes of stuff everywhere. And the attic's another story again....!!
