300 DVDs and 300+ VHS movies and you're a "little fanatical"? [Smile]

Only a little. [Wink] On average we'll add 1 or 2 per week.Mainly DVDs occasionally a VHS but only if theres no DVD for it. Lately Ive been adding more than she has. I blame you guys for it now... [Big Grin] Someone will mention a movie and then I just have to seek it out and make it part of the collection. [Roll Eyes]

I personally used to collect Transformers comics (UK editions). I was a total TF nut, as much for the comics as for the toys. Eventually by the end of '88 I decided to stop. A bad decision, as it turned out; all the plotlines for the previous hundred issues were about to converge, and I deprived myself of the payoff [Mad] ('Time Wars' anyone????)

Had to wait another 12 years before I would start purchasing again [GOD BLESS EBAY!!], and it's taken me a further 3 to complete my collection, at about quadruple the original price... [Roll Eyes]

Still it was a great, great comic tho. The majority of issues between c.#65-150 ('86 thru '88) were/are sheer quality IMO.

Cheers [Smile]

I am building my 80's DVD collection. Also, I was a huge Duran Duran fan and still have my stickers of them. Geez, I've been holding on to these things for like 20 years! Yikes!

The past year I started collecting pins of Music groups. I have some like the Cure and Adam Ant from the 80's. Today I found a Breakfast Club pin in a store. It's also a less expensive hobby for me which is good.

Video game controllers! That's a fascinating thing to collect. Do you have an old Pong game controller from circa 1977? :-)

I've collected movies and CDs forever, then books, magazines, anything and everything at one point. Got to a point a number of years ago that I was feeling smothered with "crap" and it was literally causing me anxiety...loads and loads of stuff in boxes which likely never would have seen the light of day. Big turning point was becoming a Dad four years ago, and priorities have changed drastically. Started getting rid of tons of stuff which was emotioanlly hard to do, but felt so good afterwards (OK...are people thingking I'm a freak right now?) Still love myself and like to buy things for me too...Now, I mostly collect DVDs...primarily 80's...very rarely, if ever, buy any newer movies. Also will pick up odds and ends of anything that captures the innocence and my childhood) of the 80's. So...no plans anytime soon to get rid of my: vintage ghetto blaster, 80's record albums, ATARI and games (though this remains in a box untouched...I can't seem to part with it), also still have some old comic books, hockey cards, mad magazines, and a few toys. I think I'll love the 80's til I die....though wonder what I might think of Michael Jackson or Gremlins when I'm 75ish...hoping the kid in me lasts til the end!

With you 100%! Not a dad, though.

I guess I only collect 80's movies. Man I have seen way too many and seen those way too many times.

My mate collects Smurf figurines but only the ones from the 80's. The original company Schleich still makes them but they all have the years on the bottom of the smurfs feet. My friend will only allow the 70's and 80's ones into his display cabinet. He is 39 and I have heard his 16 year old niece ridiculing him about it.

Oh forgot to mention. I built an arcade cabinet and has many video games on there so yeah I guess I collect video games too. Mainly the old ones. 1942 is my favourite.

He's a collector, people who don't collect seldom understand *any* form of collecting because they have no passion / connection to the objects being collected.

You know those vintage white clamshell DISNEY vhs boxes that you could not remove the paper label from the top of the box, the label was sealed into the box, those are collected by myself along with some PACMAN stuff, Popeye, MISSOURI Tigers stuff, AUTOGRAPHS(would like a Chevy Chase piece some day), old coins, ODD SERIAL#s ON PAPER MONEY and basically anything that takes me back to my childhood(70's/80's).
