Post what other items you're currently collecting other than the obvious Transformers answer!
Blu-rays, Ive slowed down to about 4 a month, but for a while I had an expensive hobby.
For me personally...
- McFarlane Halo 3 series (though exclusives elude me to the point I don't even try)
- Power Rangers Variants (Green Ranger, Lord Zedd, White Ranger, Gold Ranger)
And when I look in my closet I have...
- McFarlane Dragons series
- GI Joe 25th Anniversary
- Microman 25th Anniversary items
- DBZ figures (the highly articulated ones)
No line to completion, but some of the stuff I have bought from the summer to now:
DC Universe figs
Deluxe Wall-E and E.V.E.
Target Exclusive Hulk
Movies Masters Dark Knight figs
Couple of GI Joes, namely Commando Snake-Eyes and one of those DVD packs.
A bunch of clearance LCBH and Marvel Legends from BBTS
A Star Wars droid that looked cool
Couple of model kits, including a 1/24 Dome-0 I plan to kitbash into a Hot Rod.
pre-ordered a Revoltech Enki, and thinking about getting another Revoltech with that order
Strongly debating ordering a Dark Knight Batman or Iron Man 1/6th figure too, but probably won't, because I am afraid I will get sucked into that world of collecting, and that's dangerously expensive territory. Damnit.
I think that's about it for toys - well non TF ones at least. I've not really bought any comics this summer, got a couple of tpb's for my b-day in August, and whatever stuff my friends send me that they are working on. Not much else though. Toys own me now.
GI Joes and vintage video games.
25th GI JOE
The new He-man line
Cutting down on Marvel figures and pretty much gave up on Star Wars figures.
Marvel Legends. Back in the early 90's I think I had every Xmen, Fanstatic Four and Spiderman figure Toybiz would diss out. I got rid of them and started collection transformers of course. But recently I renewed my passion for the Marvel world and have been buying and trading for them. I wanted to collect the 25th Gijoe also, but the wallet doesn't let me.
Brave stuffs & Anime DVDs (w/robots & mecha content)
I was buying a ton of GI Joe 25th until my stores stopped at wave 3 and started up again on wave 6.
I've have a decent amount of hockey & lacrosse jerseys along with some DVD's but I don't buy those as often as I used to. I also have a small Dr. Doom collection (3 figs), some figures from favorite movies (about 7 figs) and graphic novels. That's basically it I'd say all of those I collect very casually 1 or 2 things a year. Transformers is my only drug of choice.
I use to collect Mega Block kits, but I got out of it and I'm now putting them all on Ebay.
I do collect vintage Black Belt magazines from 1960's to 1975.
Yamato Macross 1/60s
Some Ghost in the Shell stuff
The "classic" Power Rangers chase figures
DC Universe Classics
Star Wars 3 3/4 Clones/Storm Troopers
12 inch figures- Hot Toys, Sideshow Dark Knight, Iron Man, Terminator, thinking maybe a Medicom Episode 3 Vader, but I have'nt liked the reviews I've read
Started Collecting Power Rangers Megazords from the first 3 seasons, and thinking about going into Zeo Zords
Marvel Legends Scale and DC Direct figures
McFarlane Halo 3 stuff, got over half of Series 3 coming to my house, just need some exclusive stragglers.
Lego Bionicle sets, had to take a break this month to save cash for Halo.
Revoltechs and alot of random figures (busou shinkis/marvel legends/neca stuffs/sota stuffs......anything else besides TF that looks cool, I guess)
Due to recent financial problemsmy collecting wil grind to halt except for a few items here and there.
Gi Joe's Darkstalkers Spawn the new He-man...and thats all for today lol
I've recently into DBZ also what series do you recommend dude??? Are the Hybrid Action ones any good?
As to back to the orighinal question, these are what I have been collecting for the past few months:
i) Gundam Master Grade kits - most likely stopping soon if the Guntank is released as I'm focusing on "The One Year War".;
ii) Revoltech - only on the classic characters such as Mazinkaiser and the more popular mechs
iii) Dragon Ball merchandise - ranging from the recently figures to gashapons! Just bought a PVC, 30 cm Oozaru!
iv) Starwars - my focus is on the OT and I only buy "upgrades" if they're only good enough like the Falcon.
v) Mecha - these can be from SOC or any company that produces cool classic bots like Voltron
vi) Superheroes such as ML and DC characters but I've stopped on them for quite awhile
Lines that I have stopped
- SIC aka Kamen Riders
- 12 inch figures like Old Snake, Naked Snake, Bruce Lee
- 25th An. Joes because the ones I want aren't available in my country! Blah!
Other than TFs, I used to collect Super Sentai mechs; I'm slowly getting out of them now as the plex concept is starting to get out of hand (as well as the gimmicks instead of trying to make them more articulated).
I still collect:
- sentai changer (on a not-so active basis)
- signed photobooks of Sentai/Kamen Rider/Tokusatsu actresses
- the odd SoC 'bot
