Aside from Ponies, what do you collect?

My biggest drain on cash is my Transformers collection. I have several different characters, but I also collect anything Prowl related.

I used to be BIG into anime (even started a convention), but I have sold most of my memorabilia by now, only keeping my absolute favorites.

While I don't consider myself a collector, I guess I collect animation, both movies and TV shows. Animation has always fascinated me, from the art to the writing, so I still own quite a bit and watch even more.

I "collect" penguin plushes by way of my friends. Whereas, I once said how much I love penguins and then everyone bought me penguin stuff all the time.

I love the Transformers! I can't really say I collect them, but I admit I buy every version of Soundwave that comes out. I have some others, but I don't actively go seeking them out. They just sorta end up at my house. I'm huge on robots and cyborgs though, so it's not surprising people bring them to me.

I also used to collect old gumball machine charms, especially celluloid ones. I got priced out of that though when everybody else started wanting them too. heh... Oh well. I do enjoy the ones I have.

I just got into collecting Fenton glass cats (the realistic ones, not the Alley Cat line), but only have three so far--they're expensive little suckers!

I was big into Inuyasha for awhile, collected the manga, posters, figures, and plush, but I've got that packed away now.

Books, both physical and electronic, 'cause I love to read. I bought my Kindle because I didn't have anymore space for physical books.

Various snow leopard themed items, snow leopards being my all time favorite big cat. :D

I collect figurines from video games, movies and comics. My biggest collection are probably my Moby **** Resident Evil figures. I also really like Final Fantasy Play Arts characters and have quite a lot of them, my favourite being Dark Yojimbo. I have some Gintama figurines, DCU busts and a few Freddy Kruger figures, as well as many zombies from various media such as Left 4 Dead and The Walking Dead.

I'm sort of a collector?

This is s a tough call, because no matter how you swing it, I'm a light collector in every direction, except for maybe ponies, but that tends to come in waves. I'll get collecting: buying, selling, trading, and recently customs, and then I'll slow it down realizing how poor I am and run away from every thrift store I see and try desperately to stay away from Walmart and Target but I'm so weak lately :cry2:

I collect movies. All kinds, but either cartoon/anime or fantasy/scifi. I love movies and tv series, but not like laugh track comedies of crime/detective shows (use to love CSI Las Vegas and Dexter until those shows made me EXTREMELY paranoid, no joke).

Movie wise:
Disney
Pixar/Dreamworks
Harry Potter (looking forward to the new one!)
LOTR
The Hobbit (I have a Bilbo plushie <3)
Star Trek (original, Next Gen, & new movies)
Star Wars (I'm a rare hybrid fan)

Tv Show wise:
Game of Thrones
Trueblood
Use to collect Vampire dairies, but not anymore
Star Trek Next Gen & Voyager
MLP various
Firefly
Sex in the City (except the 2nd movie, don't care for it)
Heartland
Archer (LOLz)

I collect books and comics/manga as well, but only a few and all the stuff I collect above, I have like half-collections or downloaded everything. I'm in such a state of poverty lately, lol. Oh man.

Comics/Manga
Soulless
Serenity (Firefly series)
Earl and Fairy
Graphic novels by Renae de Liz (The Last Unicorn & Peter Pan)

Books:
Anne McCaffrey's original Dragonriders of Pern (haven't read her son's books)
Dragonlance (back in the day)
Charles de Lint <3<3<3
Marion Zimmer Bradley
The Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs (I'm going to be a panelist with her at the next convention XD)

Other than that I use to collect dragon stuff. Anything dragon. Glass figurines, resin collectibles, Windstone edition, pocket dragons, and anything with dragons on it.

Now I draw them and make them myself, so I'm selling off most of my collection. Lately I'm more interested in quality over quantity, but with the ponies I just tend to pick them up whenever I see them, lol. It's weird for me, but they're so **** cute!

Oh, and I use to collect plants, but now I have a roommate that's stifled that :sadpony: I want to live in a jungle.

It would sound like my place is packed full of things, but like I said, I'm a lazy/slow collector. All my dvds are in alphabetical order in CD/Dvd cases, I don't care to keep the cases they come in like others do and I tend to sell off things I don't care for anymore so I'm always making room :)

Funny enough, at first I was miffed that Loki wasn't going to be in his traditional comic book green/yellow/horns to the ceiling outfit, so I was determined not to like him in the film. Instead, I just adore him! My three sisters are in love with him too.

He would totally rule with a Pony army. It must be so!
It's going to be so, I won Avengers Loki on Ebay today. 8D Crazy excited to get him in hand!

Ah, KasaraWolf, you're a girl after my own heart! I *love* doujinshi. I have literally stacks of DBZ doujin. If it were ever come to light how much I spent on them I would die from shame. In fact, funny story, DBZ doujin introduced me to my beautiful partner of 13 years. I bought some yaoi doujinshi from her, years ago, we became buds and the rest in history! We still buy loads of Dragon Ball goodies.

Vegeta loves to have tea with my Ponies. He doesn't like people knowing it, but it's true.

YAY another doujinshi lover!!



I wish I had stacks of DragonBall Z doujinshi! :LOL: I think I only have these 5 at the moment XD I would have more, but ebay has been kind of slim when it comes to the ones I like~ (And the fact that I have no job also doesn't help lol) And I know how you feel about the spending thing haha.



Aawwww! That's such a sweet story! ^0^

Later we must do the gushing about muscular aliens and their tail protrusions! :LOL:

I'm not buying them right now myself. They've gotten too high and my buddy in Japan would rather spend time with his stinky ol' boyfriend than get my doujin. Where are his priorities, I ask?



I just watched an episode of Supernatural for the first time, but I was lost. So gals, should I give it more of a chance? It is awesauce and a bag o' chips?

I love all the Pokemon stuff! I'm not a collector per se but I do have a few Pokemon plushies. My favourite is my Quagsire <3 I've been looking for years for a big Venusaur plushie but I can never find one.

I should take a picture of my figurine shelf some time.

I love the larger figures but most of them are so freakin' expensive! Luckily both him and Kenshin were about $30ish and that was with shipping from someplace in Asia.

Next on my list is to find a cheap Hiei and Sebastian from Black Butler.

I collect games together with my boyfriend. Technically it's his collection, but there are a few titles that are "mine", either in that I wanted them or that I am the only one who'd ever play them. XD This includes things like the Mass Effect Trilogy, Bayonetta, Folklore and Little Big Planet.

Personally, I collect digital art and photos. I probably have around 10,000 images by now, it's over 2.5GB just for my DeviantArt folder. They're pretty disorganised at the moment, so I inevitably have a few doubles because I have entirely too many pictures to know exactly which I've saved before.

I keep the tickets and the programmes from each of the musicals I go see on my annual trips to the theatre. I only have ones from Cats and The Phantom of the Opera so far, because I didn't have enough money to get a programme for Beauty and the Beast, the first musical I ever went to. I hope it comes back on eventually.

Lately I've also started collecting Bratzillaz. I've always hated Bratz dolls, but these ones are so different. They're so expressive, and their sparkly inset eyes stole my heart. I also love how articulate they are. I had initially wanted to buy them just for customizing, but I feel sorry for the ones that I have now... and I'm especially deterred by their price tag. They're pretty expensive here. I'm not planning on getting a lot of them, but there are one or two that I just can't help but fall in love with.

I've also been collecting plushies and teddy bears my entire life, but I lost pretty much every plush toy I ever had at the same time that I lost my childhood ponies. I haven't really been actively collecting them since then, but my boyfriend does occasionally buy me one or two. I even have one teddy that's over half my size, and it helps me sleep when I'm alone.

I used to collect a lot more than that (from jewellery to Koosh balls), but over time I've either lost the collections or I've lost interest in collecting them. And there are tons of other things that I keep wanting to collect, but there's only enough money, time and room in the house for me to have one or two ongoing collections.

Here are some of my shelves with my other stuff I collect :) I will have to take a better picture after I organize the shelves and add my other items (I had to pack away a lot of my stuff, because my Dad is still building the shelves.) But here is a small fragment of my collection XD
