  • What do you collect?

    Just wondering if there's any collectors out there? I collect diecast cars (hotwheels,matchbox,corgi,ect),simpsons (huge collection),futurama and staffy statues.
    Love a good tune

    I was collecting those $2 simpsons figures that they sell in Target & Coles (see www.tpf.com.au). They are now apparently sold out! I got the whole of the 3 series, even the rare ones.... I was quite proud of myself.... WAS being the appropriate word here as I recently went into K-Mart and saw the whole set for sale! It was in a collectors box, with an extra limited edition figure AND.... wait for it.... was cheaper than going and buying each figure seperatly!!!! What a rip .... What is the point of bringing out the figures seperatly, making you hunt for the supposed "rare" figures then just bring out the whole set to buy a month later!!! Why not release the collectors set from the start!!!

    Anyways... Thats my little winge and thats what I (used to) collect!

      Yes that was disappointing..Trends like that have caught me out in the past so i decided not to collect those even though i came very close on a few occasions. They released a set in a plastic case limited to only 300 worldwide with all 3 series (were selling as high as $200 on ebay!).. I thought wow wouldn't that be cool to have but again something inside me said no. Then a few weeks later guess what they bring out that set you mentioned with a gold homer. If you wait a month or 2 those sets will get really cheap. Now i'm very carefull with what i collect.

            A mate of mine has a CD store AND he also imports and sells a STACK of those figures - he is in Dapto NSW ( near Wollongong ) - this is his website for the figures - http://www.ozactionfigures.com - due to the CD store commitments he has not updated his action figure site for about 6 months BUT you will get a good idea of what he has to sell-
            Kiss, Crue, maiden , etc etc.
            He can ship direct and he is a great guy - his name is Greg if you wanted to contact him. His email address is gtomes@vtown.com.au

                LP's and arcade related stuff like backglasses and playfields

                Hey Ace, you may be able to help me out with something I bought at an auction awhile back

                It is a KISS throw rug with the covers of the1978 solo albums. It looks great however i cannot find reference to it in a KISS collectable book i found.

                You have any idea what it is (besides a rug)

                      I've actually bought some stuff from Greg. He's pretty reliable.

                      I used to collect McFarlane horror figures, but now they've been superceded by Neca collectables, so I collect those horror figures eg Fri13th, Halloween, Hellraiser etc. I eventually hope to collect all 3 of the Sunstar 1:18 Deloreans from BTTF. I don't get as many anymore, as it's not a cheap hobby.

                      I also collect retro games, movie posters (well over 100 so far), X-files stuff from time-to-time (pretty cheap nowadays) and DVDs
                      BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here. When your down here with us, you'll float too!

                        I've collected so many different things over the years. Usually i get say 75% of the collection and then just lose interest.

                        Things like basketball cards. Don't know why everyone went crazy over these for a period of time. I wasn't even interested in the game but felt the need to pay $5 for pack of 10 cards or whatever. Did spark me to play basketball for a whole season though.

                        I can relate to you guys what happened with the simpson figures. I was collecting soccer team badges, there would be thousands of different ones. Anyway most are probably $5-$10 and issued by the team. But then i noticed sellers have different packages like these which are obviously rip off's but you can't tell the difference.

                        http://cgi.ebay.com.au/UEFA-European...QQcmdZViewItem

                        Luckly i only had a few doubles after buying a few of these different sets, but it was enough to make me lose interest.

                        Mega cd games was a big thing i was collecting for a while when i first discovered ebay.

                        Probably about a million different things which i can't thing of at the moment, i'd have to look around
                        You must be a parking ticket cause you got Fine written all over you! Giggidy giggidy giggidy!

                          I used to collect trading cards back in the day, plus those Magic the Gathering cards. I've still got shipload of cards floating around the place, star wars etc.

                          I also collect the original star wars toys, got a pretty big collection now, and the best part is that i got most of em when they were on the throw out tables at places like myer etc when i was young!

                          Currently im into collecting japanese sega saturn games, but that has slowed down since i got into arcade stuff.

                          I bought those damn simpsons figurins for my gf. spent ages chasing down the rare's etc. ended up getting the whole set.

                          I have also started collecting japanese video game figurines (gashpons)
