    So I have a bit of a collection going on, and I figured why not share it, and have people of the community share their collections as well.

    But, in order for it to be considered a collection, it has to be of one type of thing. So for example, you can't say "here's my PS2 collection!" and it's just a PS2 and a bunch of games. No, this has to be a collection of stuff related to video games, but not games itself. So for example, below is my collection of the Mario stuff that I've managed to obtain so far.

    All I have is KH: Birth by Sleep with the special sleeve on the case. Now I feel like I shouldn't have opened it. Look at this http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140519031542

    Hmm...I don't think I have any collector items besides some LoZ posters from Club Nintendo and that Club Nintendo Nobember error calender card. I do have an Original Halo Combat Evolved Xbox and...that's kind of it. I've never been one for collector editions although recently I've been interested in some things...

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Hmmm...I do collect the collector's editions of video games. I know you said not to post your games, but they're the special/collector's editions. Does that count?

    Also, I have tons of strategy guides, dating as far back as the mid- to late-90's. Back then they were called "unauthorized strategy guides." I have them for most of the major games for each console generation like Dragon Warrior IV, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy VI (but it was for actually for Final Fantasy III for the SNES), Resident Evil, etc. The production value of strategy guides back then was so shitty, they were all in black and white and printed on crappy paper. It's cool to see how far we've come since the first strategy guides were made.

    Now that strategy guides are commonplace and pretty nice-looking nowadays, I always get the hardbound collector's editions whenever they're available. I don't even read them; the majority of them are still sealed. I get them because the hardcovers usually come with something extra like lithograph prints, cloth maps, exclusive art, etc. And damn do they look good on a bookshelf as a nice contrast next to my medical textbooks ;)

    Being in New York temporarily for school, I only have a small collection of hardcover CE strategy guides with me right now. The vast majority of my collection is back at my folks' house in California. I'll post a picture of what I have with me when I get the chance.

    Does an original PS1 (phat) count as collectors?

    Well, finally had some time to post some shots. Here's what I have with me. My collection back home is considerably larger.
    Large Images Inside

    I had to take a separate pic for this GoW3 guide because I found it on a separate part of the bookshelf after I took the first pic:

    Oh, and if you've played MGS3, I have some Calorie Mates. They taste alright. I don't see why Big Boss loved them so much. I guess compared to a tree frog, they're awesome.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    And speaking of frogs, I actually have a Ga-Ko and two Kerotan coin banks sitting on my desk back home storing all my Japanese yen coins. The bank only exchanges paper bills back to US currency, so I'm stuck with those coins until the next time I go back to Japan and can use them. Wish I had a pic of them so I could post them here :(

    And the guy who made the post in the forum where I found that pic was spewing a load of crap. I bought mine in Japan at a store called Tokyu Hands (sort of like a Japanese Wal-Mart) for 700 yen each. At the time, the exchange rate was about 120 yen to USD $1, so it came out to a little under $6 per Kerotan/Ga-Ko. "Rare," "Konamistyle" exclusives, my ass :glare: I should've bought a shit ton of them and auctioned them off to suckers if people buy into that crap!
