Those are not my collections. no way. i will never have the patience :dontknowa i used to collect stickers, keychains, photo stickers, pencils and stamps when i was much younger but i always lose interest after a while :sleep:

I collect dvds. I used to collect action blockbusters, but recently, I've been trying to build up my indie drama collection.

I used to collect sports memorabilia of my favorite teams but I've quit doing that about a year ago.

I used to collect stamps but I got sick of it since all letters seemed to use Postage Paid. The keyring arrangment in that link is very nice.

I starting a collection of 14 year old austrailian boys of asian descent.
I'm going to sell them to Micheal Jackson when he gets out of jail.
You can send them to me postage due.

Who the fuck dusts all of Tony's shit?
The closest thing I have to a collection is my cameras, but I am trying to sell one of them, so I guess that doesn't really qualify as a collection.

Anything Star Wars related. I'm one of those freaks now. I need pity.

I'm so The Simpson's comic book guy ''Do NOT remove it from its original packaging!!!''

That bloke's collection of stuff is ... sad. Come on, some collections are cool, but he collects everything... I think he has that illness where you can't throw anything out.

Yes, the only thing with him is he decided to organize it all.

I would like to have a huge dvd collection, but I have only btw 50 and 60 (some of them are crap) of them so far. I don't display them nicely coz I don't have the place, they're just dvds and some of them are somewhere at my siblings's places.

I'm starting slowly a postcards, photos collection and candles. As I'm picky and I don't really look for them, It grows slowly.

I collect money as much as possible; my favourites for the moment are euros because of the low dollar course.

I collect mostly Beatles memorabilia. I have so much. Records, posters, movies, books, shirts, lunchboxes, stickers, candles, jewelery, mugs ... pretty much anything you can think of.

I collect stamps, too. Haha. Old stamps, nothing new (I have stamps from countries all over the world). I must have thousands by now.

I have about 4 shoe boxes of pens. Don't know why, I just like writing, as in actual paper & pen writing, and I keep buying them. I've got pens from pretty much every country I've been to. Same goes for lipbalm - I've got about 20 different kinds from this one brand, from all over Europe. I'm craaazy :D

I collect those new quarters. I just found California recently (I need Wisconsin, how did I miss that?) and today at the bank I received a whole roll ($10 dollars worth) of new California quarters. It was amazing, and I refuse to spend it.

Up until the invention of DVDs, I used to collect movies on VHS. I have about 300 of them in a box, getting old, and getting wears. I stopped collecting and buying DVDs recently since the wonderful world of Netflix (which is a big money saver if you ask me).

I'd like to collect CDs, but since I'm a member of Napster I often find no use for it since I mostly listen to oldies music and they're always available to download. I have a CD collection that consists of only 5 albums. Not too keen on it, obviously.

I used to collect Pokemon cards and I should've been drug out into the street and shot for it, but that's a different story. ;)

Pens...that reminds me. I used to have a bunch of fountain pens. When our apartment got broken into in Atlanta, they were stolen. I got a Mont Blanc and a Parker Duofold from insurance and cash for the rest...Watermans, etc.

I just recently started collecting DVD (haven't got many yet:(). Though I don't think I'll ever get as much as my friend's family. They got somewhere between 1500 and 2500 DVDs I think.

I collect cds. I have somewhere around 110 to 120 and my collection is constantly growing. It's become a bad habit almost; I can't stop buying cds and it leaves me with very little money (sort of like a cocaine addiction).

I wouldn't say I collect CD's, but I have around 150 at the moment, I seem to buy a new one every week.

When my nanna died, I inherited her stamp collection, which I've been told is quite valuable. There are 27 folders full of stamps from all over the world, and some are extremely old. I'm sort of getting into the stamp collecting thing now, reading about some of the stamps history that I own, and also adding to the collection.

I've also got a LOT of coins from around the world, and some are also really old. Most of my coins are the packaged collector ones from the Australian Mint which my grandpa use to get me for birthdays and Christmas'. I don't know how much that collection is worth, but around 6 months ago I counted the Australian coins and that was about $800 if I were to spend it at the shops. Some of the rarer coins might be worth more to a collector though.

I also collect gaming consoles (well, actually I never throw them out or sell them). I own:
1x Atari
4x Nintendo
2x SNES
1x Sega Mega Drive
1x Sega Saturn
1x Playstation
1x PSone
2x Nintendo 64 i
1x Dreamcast
2x Xbox
And recently I bought a second hand Playstation 2 and Gamecube

And for my handhelds I have:
1x Nintendo Game and Watch
2x Original grey coloured Gameboys
2x Orginal coloured Gameboys (black and red)
1x Pocket Gameboy
2x Colour Gameboy (both lime green)
1x Gameboy Advance
2x Gameboy Advance SP (silver and black)
1x Nintendo DS (Got this week at launch)
And I'm considering importing a PSP

If you're wondering why I have so many gaming machines, it's because when my older brothers moved out, they didn't want them any more so they just gave them to me.
All of the consoles are in perfect working order (except for one of the Nintendo's) and I own most of the accessories. Out of all the systems, the Dreamcast is my favourite.

I dont collect anything now but I used to collect bookmarks, porcelain dolls, little dolls from different countries and soaps. None of the "collections" are big. I've got 6 porcelain dolls I just got tired of it plus I had no place for more. 10 dolls from different countries and soaps, all I know is that it's enough.

Lets bump a thread. Here's some photos of some of my Star Wars collection.

I'm sad, but, never mind.

I feel your pain. If there's a CD shop, I'll have to go in and see if there's something I haven't got yet and obviously have to have. Unfortunately, there usually is. HMV in London is pretty much what I think heaven looks like: all the CDs I could possibly want, and then loads I don't want, for mocking purposes. Lovely :)
