What other things do you collect?
 
What else do you collect? I collect Gundams and G.I Joes.(The G.I Joes for diplay in my room) ;)


So Z,Daring and Katarn07? What else DO you collect? ;)

leXX 08-27-2003 11:06 AM

This forum is about Star Wars collecting only, but I'm in a good mood, so I'll let this one pass, just this once. But remember, in future keep your threads on topic.

Reclaimer 08-27-2003 11:08 AM

Yes leXX.

ZBomber 08-27-2003 01:31 PM

Yeh leXX. We just need threads. Collecting is already as slow. :(

I collect:

Foreign Money (Alittle bit)
The new Quarters
PEZ
Baseball Bobble Heads
Baseball Cards
Baseball Action Figures

I used to collect GI Joes. I don't have enoguh money to buy those though. The last one I got is the JFK one.

Katarn07 08-27-2003 10:07 PM

I was gonna post this but never did because of what leXX said. But she gave us permission :D Thanks leXX!!!

GI Joes/ Ultimate Soldiers/ Dragons/ Blue Box soldiers. I get all sorts of Joes, but only WWII for the last 3 brand names.

Planet of the Apes. I got a few Medicoms (the coolest figures for PotA EVER never released in US and sell for 20-40 each :(), the crappy Hasbro ones from a few years back, and even... even the 2001 movie figures :o

Indiana Jones. All the vintage and even the 12" one. I got 'The Relic Hunter', a nice 12" ripoff of Indy with a much better likeness to Ford then the Toys McCoy one. Got a custom of Indy as a German, and 2 Professor Jones (the second one looks more like Connery, but unlike the first, is in the wrong outfit :rolleyes: ) I have the Disney one, and cannot wait for the second wave of Indy guys :D Know when those are coming out anyone?

Batman. Well, not anymore. I have all my Batman toys I played with on display though. I will retire them soon when worse comes to wose and need it for SW guys.

Xena. Haha, yeah, I just packed them up to make room for some soldiers and SW guys. Maybe if I ever get room, they'll once again be shelf worthy :)

And.... well.... Star Trek. Playmates and Art Asylum. I got 9" and small. I got all the crew members from each series in the 9" assortment (except for the Klingon chick from Voyager, they never made them :mad: ) I cannot wait for the original series Art Asylum guys :cool:

I got tons of crap from movies and other things (Jurassic Park, Congo, Waterworld, Spawn, etc etc etc) in storage. I learned my lesson after selling off my Turtles. I was sitting on a gold mine! They might go up in price over the years. You never know.... ;)

Reclaimer 08-27-2003 10:34 PM

Yep I picked up a couple New Battle Scared Gundams today.


Homework coming out of the a$$.

daring dueler 08-28-2003 06:29 PM

lets see, some star trek toys, not many now, x files,simpsons, varuous army things, things that have to do with the marines(pins ect), pretty much anything from mcflaren toys(matrix,spawn so on),im gonna start with bond and indy.

Katarn07 08-29-2003 11:42 PM

Indy, eh?

Here's some MUST haves.

Vintage Raiders of the Lost Ark figures from Kenner. Very expensive for a few, but not hard to come by. At least here with all the toyshows. eBay is good. I have Indy, Belloq, German Mechanic, and Toht on the card. The rest I have loose along with 2 of 3 playsets made. One thing I need for the collectin to be complete in my eyes is the Ark that came with the 3rd playset!

12" Relic Hunter. Brian had it. I got mine from some military action figure store for only 110 dollars. It's a 12" generic Indy. Don't think it looks bad. It's the best out there, save for the hat. Not terrible, but I've seen better.

Disney Indys. I got the first one they made of him in the leather jacket. I can't wait for the second wave of them as you know.

Misc things to have.

Vintage Temple of Doom figures from LJN. VERY hard to come by. My Indy is a beat up peice of junk I was lucky to snag for 30 bucks at a show. Repro hat from Brian. I got the Giant Thugee loose and on the card and Mola Ram from a dealer at the toy show I now refer to as... Mola Ram :p

Custom Figures. eBay has tons. I got 2 different Henry Jones Srs (12") from there. Plus, I got a 12" custom of Indy as a German at a toyshow. I had my eye on his Indy in tux, Lao Che, Belloq, and Sallah. This fall... this fall...

Reclaimer 08-30-2003 10:18 AM

Reclaimer 08-30-2003 12:15 PM

Both. I love them so much I have al of them to date!

daring dueler 08-30-2003 12:17 PM

thats cool, i almost bought a g gundam figure a month or so ago, he wou;ld just look cool on my shelf.

ZBomber 08-31-2003 12:10 AM

I have quite a few GI Joes Taters. Having 1 or 2 figures of soemthing doesn't count as colelcting, like X-Files, you have Mulder, Scully, and an Alien. thats not really colelcting. I have atleast 20 GI Joes, and thats good, since they are expensive.

daring dueler 09-01-2003 10:26 PM

Check out some of them on EBay. Then you'll have a good diea (make sure to check the final bids)

daring dueler 09-01-2003 11:40 PM

ok, will do, i looked on becket or somthing like that..

Yeh, online ones sucks. Mostly the official ones. I'l ltry and find some good sites for prices tommarow for you, but this is Z, Goign to bed. ^_^

Katarn07 09-04-2003 01:05 AM

First things I'm gonna start collecting without my dad and his money!

Matrix - I plan on just Neo and Trinity from the lobby scene, but may get more if I like Reloaded enough.

Lord of the Rings - Armies of Middle-Earth. They're cool little minatures of characters or army builders. Cheap too. Plan on getting the main characters and a few army builders like the Orc 3 packs. I know, I know! I don't like these geeks either into AD&D and LotR and all, but I like LotR for the movies and books. Not for the Elvish and all the chronological crap written on them. I reserve that much useless ficitonal knowledge for SW alone :D

daring dueler 09-04-2003 07:11 PM

the mateix figures rule!

I saw all of them in Baltimore.

I have come to the conclusion that:

MASSACHUSETTS SUCKS. :(

daring dueler 09-06-2003 12:30 AM

only for star wars, we got tons of mcflaren toys around here from baseball, matrix to spawn and terminator....ive seen the whle matrix colection, gonna get that cshatou scene.

Katarn07 09-06-2003 01:57 PM

Might I ask how common the McFarlen Sammy Sosa was? Kerry Wood was around, but Sosa was impossible! I was lucky enough to snag some Starting Line Ups rare here in Chicago-land up in Wisconsin's Walmarts (along with some SW and ST if memory serves....) I'd have gotten Wood if I saw Sammy :)

By the way, off eBay? I managed to snag Indy Disneys Wave 2. All 5 for 62 dollars! That's less than 13 bucks a peice :) (my guesstimate of what Disney's gift shop will charge)

ZBomber 09-06-2003 02:11 PM

No we don't daring. We have like 5 different kinds around here, and they are old.

Sammy isn't that rare. I have him. Its just they release about 2 of the hometeam's figure. I know, I never saw Manny, Nomar, Pedro, or Derek Lowe in stores. We had to order them off EBay, and I still haven't gotten Derek Lowe yet.....

leXX 09-06-2003 09:14 PM

I have the McFarlane Matrix Series 1 figures of Neo, Trinity and Morpheus, and they are excellent. I highly recommend them. =)

Indeed they are. The twins are pretty neat too. :D

daring dueler 09-07-2003 12:41 PM

yeah, the twins are4 pretty cool, but i wanna get that boxed chateau scene.

leXX 09-08-2003 07:17 AM

The chateau scene looks too big to me. I just don't know where I'd put it. I'm running out of space as it is.

swphreak 09-08-2003 09:33 AM

I recently collected some Star Trek Micro Machines. Got all 3 collector boxes off eBay. That's about the only other thing I collect besides my Action Fleet and Star Wars Micro Machines

Whats up with you and micro sized items? Some kinda fetish? :xp:

Just kidding, you Floridian. :)

Anyone else collect Baseball cards?

Katarn07 09-08-2003 08:14 PM

Chateu? Is that from Reloaded, or did I miss something :confused:

I packed away some baseball things and spread out my Dragon and Ultimate Soldier German armies :cool: Only remaining baseball things are both complete sets of bobble heads from Post cereal this year and last year and a Cubs ball my dog stole from the neighbors :p

I think the ships are the best part of sci-fi... as well as the story :D


and leXX, those are awesome!

Katarn07 09-09-2003 07:27 PM

Oh I've seen that at TRU, but the box is always smashed up and it wasn't looking too cool. I don't look at the Matrix stuff to often, go straight to the SW and military, and am usually outta there.

Now that I got to get Neo and Trinity, WOOSH! Gah! I'll have to look at the other TRUs in my area. Hope I can get those 2. Those are the only Matrix ones I want. And that TI83 I had to buy for Trig? Yeah, no LotR for me :( :p

ZBomber 09-10-2003 07:20 PM

I have no matrix figure, but if I could only choose one, it would be one of the twins (I love them)

daring dueler 09-11-2003 12:06 AM

ok...i like hot girl twins:D


i personally like the neo the best.
