I collect movies!!!!! I really love the 80s stuff, but I collect all kinds. I have over 300 on DVD (majority) and then I just sold 80 of my 100 VHS collection recently. I also am always looking for books that have interesting 80s info in them. I have a few. I also seem to collect romance novels but not on purpose. I really like Linda Howard, Sandra Brown, and Joan Elliott Pickart.

I collect records, 80s movie posters , action figures and games.

I also have old computer and gaming systems so I'm always on the look out for old games.

I collect movies too-I have over 400 on vhs, and over 40 dvds, and growing. I have alot of 80's memoribilia. I did buy an old atari at a yardsale, but then I didn't realize you need an old tv for it to work. The cool thing, is that my son's Gamecube-the game Animal Crossings, has Donkey Kong within that game, and it is the same as the original.
I collect stuff from different tv shows, and the shows themselves, The Bionic Woman, and Six Million Dollar Man, Dukes of Hazzard, Charlie's Angels,Grizzly Adams, Wonder Woman, Emergency!,The Incredible Hulk-I just got 2 super mag- magazines at a flea market-I would love to get the old Dynamite magazines, I use to suscribe to that one. Also Great Grape Ape, Magilla Gorilla, Underdog, Hong Kong Phooey, The Banana Splits, The Land of the Lost, and all the Kroft shows, I collect anything I can find of that stuff. Thanks for Ebay.

Devolution here,

Collect?
Devo memorabilia, movies, music, music, music.

I had a lot of games, nintendo. I didn't need to collect a lot when I had most of the stuff already. I was a good age I guess, that and I didn't throw anything out.

We are DEVO

Hey Devo, I'm right there with you. My life is
consumed with music and movies! I obvioulsy collect 80's movies but the big thing for me is finding the soundtracks or music that go with them. If there is a song in the movie that isn't on the soundtrack, I look for it. It's like a quest! I also collect purses and the original little Strawberry Shortcake dolls. They're so damn cute [Razz] .

Cindy I collect purses too!!! [Big Grin] I have 23 right now that I would consider interesting enough to collect then there are several boring more everyday purses that I have in black and browns and what not. I also collect unsharpened pencils weird aye??? When I was younger I did the coin collecting thing. Right now I have about 200 records from the 60's to the 80's. I am working on movies now but my collection isn't very big yet... it is about 100.

I didnt know whether to leave this message or not, as i dont actually collect them now .. but reading about collections brought this back ...

I was a kid in the eighties, and the craze in our school was to collect rubbers (erasers) .. they came in all different sizes and shapes .. you could get little washimg powder boxes and in the boxes was a t-shirt rubber that actually smelt of washing powder .. there was fruit that smelt of fruit ?!?! (obviously . [Roll Eyes] . lol)
you could get figures, cars, all sorts ... i had hundreds of them, and we would sit at break times and compare, show our new ones etc ..

Then there was the garbage pail kids stickers .. we would collect them and trade doubles etc ... our books and files were covered in them!!!

Wow you have really brought some memories flooding back with this post .. lol

I collect 80s movies (of course [Smile] ), mostly looking for the obscure titles that aren't on DVD yet, plus cartoons and handheld games that are mostly from the 80s:

http://linux.tc3net.com/darwin/kult/ - cartoon VHSs (needs updating)
http://62.188.32.182:1453/~rid/handheld.html - handheld electronic games (also needs updating with my growing collection of Nintendo game&watches)

Smayt that's wonderful! I've been collecting Spiderman stuff since I was 4 years old! I am consumed by all things Spiderman! I have a great old comic signed by Stan Lee, and I have a pair of suede Spiderman shoes that I wore when I was 4 years old. So they're like over 20 years old now.

I have tons of Spidey comics and unopened action figures, t-shirts and posters. It's nice to know that another person here is in to Spidey too! [Big Grin]

Oh my....my son's room is done in Spiderman, the wall are blue the curtains are red, the area rug is red, the comforter/sheets are spiderman, he has wall decals spiderman,a border that looks like a comic strip, pictures, and for the other part of his birthday besides the 80's stuff, we did a spiderman cake, I used fake spider webbing from Halloween and under a canopy in our yard, I put webs all over it, and I made these spiderman heads, out of red paper lanterns and felt, and crepe paper-they were cool. I put fake spiders all around the food bowls, and plates.

I remember collecting beer cans in 6th grade, that we found all over the place. We collected stickers- especially the scratch and sniff kind. I collected the Grease trading cards. Hardy Boys stuff- I was in their fan club.Also, King Kong stuff.
I collected stamps too.

I don't "collect" anything but I still have a few things stored away that I never really threw away. Most notable would be those WWF wrestling figures made around 1985. I have Hulk Hogan, King Kong Bundy, Brutus Beefcake, Big John Sud, The Iron Sheik, and Andre the Giant. I also think I still have a few Garbage Pail Kids.

i don't collect anything right now. although there are quite a few things i would love to collect but unfortunately, living in NYC, space is really limited. goonies stuff would be so much fun to collect. as would the care bears. or jem and the holograms.
well, i do have almost all of the simpsons figures that have been coming out.

I collect Dennis Rodman stuff,Space Jam and Detroit Pistons stuff mainly from 89-91. Movies are mine and my wifes hobby. With over 300 DVDs and at least that many in VHS, we're a little fanatical about it.

I've been collectiing Framed Movie Reel cells from 80s movies just lately, recent purchases have been of: Ghostbusters, Cocktail, Gremlins and Dirty Dancing. They look nice on the wall with a little brass plaque a mini poster and the actual film cells.

They look like this... [Razz]

Wow,I cant believe I found my niche finally. Well, I dont know if I collect it, but I love listening to 80's music. Mostly new wave, new romantic and punk. I love the 80's movies as well and have probably seen almost all of them listed here..sheesh..this is a great collection too by the way. Does anyone remember a live action/animated movie by the name of Waterbabies? It starred James Mason. Great movie, a lot of singing though..that may put some people off.
