I collect books, some signed by the authors. I used to collect sheet musics for piano, some CD's and anime on DVD's.

I kinda see the term "collector" as a bad word and it conjures up terrible images of wall after wall after wall of figurines so I don't see myself as a "collector"...but I do have interests.

Pocket knives mostly...and flashlights. Neither collection is out of hand in size. I have probably 20 knives, one of every mag light and 6 coast led flashlights....coast being my favorite.

I have an ever growing collection of various types of computer cabels. Im not sure why but I would almost call it obsessive compulsive.
I collect dvds
I have a cool little collection of rocks from different places ive been.
I used to collect comics now I just download them.
I collect vintage movie marquee posters.
My hobbies fluctuate but whenever I get into something I tend to go all the way and end up with some kind of collection or another.
Cool thread by the way.

Lets see here. I collect Baseball cards, well I did. I have 3 huge binder-fulls of it. I'm also in the process of collecting all of the Star Wars books, being the Star Wars nerd that I am.

One of the unusual things that I collect are dragons, in multiple mediums. I like dragon artwork and sculptures. There aren't to many movies worth a squat about dragons, but I have a couple.

Other than that, that's pretty much it.

I used to collect many things. Lint at one point. Still have a wax and empty tea candle collection. I collect baggage. Books of course (all kinds). Hmm... I just know I'm missing something. ATS points, lol.

I threw away a lot of my old collections.

I used to collect money. Not so much these days.

You really like Frank Zappa don't you?

I collect all my KISS stuff, memorabilia and everything else. Have a collection of Elvis things too. And I used to collect shot glasses, but most of them were put away in boxes or stuff, don't know if they broken or anything.

I collect books, Ballet porclien dolls, and anime stuff.
Yes, anime stuff. FullMetal Alchemist is my favorite! I am working on all the DVD's, my mom got me a 2008 FullMetal Calender too for x-mas. I have the game, and I hope to eventually find the action figures. (they will stay in they're boxes)
I have over 30 dolls, and over 1,000 books.

more than you sounds kinda strange but i feel a connection to him. i was not into him that much before he died and only the last couple years have i got insane about it.....i have all the books written about him. i have all the guitar transcriptions that vai did for his stuff.

i like what he was all about.

i forgot to add that i collect fish. i am down to just one tank at the moment with new world cichlids in it but i had 5 going at one point. there are two empties in the basement...

i have a small straight razor collection too. nothing fantastic. quite a few buddah and ganesha statues too. there is a habadasheri shop in town that i like to visit once a month or so....always good finds in there.

I collect human skulls, lollypops I steal from little kids, and the tears from infants.

I am kidding about the skulls. I collect guns, mostly WW2, but a few others as well. I wont disclose how many but if you ask my wife it is too many, women. I also have a collection of tool albums and what nots, and also Beatles albums.

I had a friend in high school that used to collect animal feet, he would take them off road kill. Kept them in a little box, and once opened it to show me and flies flew out of it. he had a nice collection going, everything from coons to cat feet. Maybe a little on the crazy side, but he is actually one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life, and now that his youth is behind him quite normal.

I go and see him in prison every once in a while, seems he didnt stop at animal feet. Not really, married with two kids, and if that doesnt send him over the edge I would say he is fine by now.

I think the only thing I consistently collect and keep are boxing dvds. I tend to rent movies, take books out from library, and rent video games. I am more of a sampler than a collector.

I haven't really collected anything since I was a kid. But I do have a fondness for Zippo brand Lighters. I have a few of them. 8 the last time I counted.
