    Anyone a collector of anything? Try to provide some pictures if you can!

    Here's mine: I hope it needs no introduction...

    I would but the rest is at my other place. [​IMG] My other place is storage and they're all over the place... It'd take a gazillion shots to get the whole thing good. [​IMG]

    wow that plenty, i wish i could see it. i really like mechas and i like customizing stuff when i was a kid. unfortunately we didn't have money to buy such toys. back then i always wanted to have a gundam on a shelf in my house, and customize one.


    Do you just display them or do you have some customized?

    So.. I'm not the only one it seems. Also too lazy to get rid of them? [​IMG]

    Also, I have 3 huge empty KFC buckets at home, filled with beer bottlecaps.
    It started as a joke "Do you think we can fill this whole bucket?", and now we have 3 of them filled.

    So, nah, I'm not collecting anything serious.

    -Books
    -Manga
    -Anime
    -DVDs
    -Knives/Swords/The odd bow thrown in
    -Nintendo's and other consoles
    -Anything Zelda
    -Laserdisc/CED Disc (though it is a rather small (10 Laserdiscs with one still factory sealed and three CED Discs) collection)
    - Some odds and ends in antiquities (A couple of books ranging from the 18th to 19th century, some broken pipes (tabacco) from the late 19th century, some photos from the 19th century, and coins ranging from the 18th to 20th century)
    -Some posters/Other wall decorations (not too much though, about 13 of them with a huge T3 poster as the crown jewel)
    -And some other odds and ends that I cannot bother to recall at the moment (some (small) statues, etc)
    Some Pics:
    Some of the antique books
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    A couple of old pics which lack about a quarter of my total amount of swords/knives/etc these days
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Some of the posters
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    And I really can't be bothered to take pics of the missing swords (Souba, some Katana's, a crossbow, a replica of anduril (though smaller in scale) and some other swords and knives) or posters (V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Indiana Jones, Drawing of the Pantheon, Zelda Four Sword poster/wall scroll thingy, photo of a traffic light saying don't walk) right now (as for the DVD's, Books, etc, I have too much of those things to go and photograph (well except for the Zelda things (but they are on the temp already), other consoles (but it is too much of a bother to remove them from their places), Anime (sixteen different series/movies and 49 DVD's) , and manga (fourteen different series and 93 vol.))

    edit: Well it seems that I managed to make 200 posts, which is about 150 more than 90% of the other forums I've ever visited (And about 100 more than the other 10%), so uh, yay for that? :S

    I once went through a phase of collecting model (toy) Dodge Vipers. I got up to around 20 of various models, colours and sizes until I moved house. I packed them in a box for the move and I never got around to unpacking them. Ten years later they're still in a box under my bed. The largest is 1:18 scale and the smallest is a Micro Machine. I also had the matchbox version featured in that comparison photo.

    Well I've been collecting them (the swords) for the better part of five years (I've always had a fascination for pointy and stabby things, but I couldn't get permission from my parents before I turned eighteen), so it's logical to have a lot of them. And sorry, after having to fight for over a decade to be allowed to get them, they are quite dear to me. As such they will never be sold by me (and the ones that enter my room uninvited will have many pointy instruments stuck in theirselves [​IMG] )
