I'm sure most of us have a collection of something whether it be stamps, movies etc so what is it you like to collect? For me I'm an avid fan of scale model cars.

 

This is just one of my cabinets. I have another too, but found it hard to get a nice shot..

I mostly collect Aussie Holdens and Fords, but I have a few European, Asian and Ameican cars too. I just recently salavaged some of my dad's Hotwheels that had been in storage for 15-20 years and wanted to display them. They came from America in the mid/late 1990s.
 
Out of all of them though this is my favourite..

1963 VW Beetle. This was the first one I ever got in 1994 when I was just 8. It cost $300 and I always remember growing up how proud I was to have it. 20 years later and it still looks great. :)

I rather inadvertently started collecting these POP! vinyl guys:

 

Funko-POP-Movies-The-Big-Lebowski-The-Du

 

It started with a gift, then I noticed I've accumulated a bunch of them without really planning to. Pretty cool little guys. 

 

I also collect the scalps of my enemies and blood samples from strangers on trains.

Ah a fellow scalper! Ever since people stopped buying my scalps I built up quite the collection. I still get the odd bounty now and again but I mostly just scalp for fun these days.

I used to collect stickers when I was a kid. I have like 5 sticker books, but misplaced them.

I also collected trading cards that included: Digimon, Yugioh, Pokemon, Magic, Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, Naruto, and a bunch of others. Most recently have added these new cards called Weiss Schwarz, only because my old coworker wanted to get me into the actual game and gave me a deck.

 

I collect books - but can't anymore because my bookshelf is too full. 

I collect video games - but I think most people do here

I collect candles & makeup - because I'm also girly at times.

Nice collection there, SoL.

 

I have a sh*t ton of Winner's Circle model cars, the small ones and large ones. Speaking of which, I've been meaning to go through them and sort them out and possibly get some prices on them. I've been collecting them since a youngster. I'll go through them today and snap some pictures.. you may be suprised :p

Swords and daggers primarily, but other weaponry too. Or at least I used to, expensive sh*t to be collecting.

Oh cool, this thread's back. I started collecting those US quarters with the states on the back about a week ago, just another thing to keep myself busy while I waste away. I'm up to twenty-three from last program, and three from the newer program, and I love it! Each time I get change it's like opening a new pack of Pokemon cards. :happy:

Here's some quick shots.. I used to have a cabinet and all for the collection but as it grew and finally got my own place, I had to move all of it out to my 40' container out by the shop.. sucks because some of the boxes were weathered :( But still.. anyways,

WCW/NWO Car

Bruce Lee car (one of my favs)

John Wayne car

Some beer cans from early Daytona Bike Week days (still finding some on eBay, been collecting for last 3 years)

23d7dbaee0888e4f9051b5f5a6dd19d6.png

 

Some of the smaller models (You'll see Dale Earnhardt's Wrangler Thunderbird and Gordon's sprint car in there.. since we all know Gordon is the f*cking man)

Yeah, it's a pretty big collection.. I believe for the larger scales, I counted 42 before I took the picture. I had more but nephews and my own son I've given acouple out as toys and what not.. (The more sucky drivers :p )

 

These are also drivers and schemes from earlier years, late 90's and early 2000's. BAck when NASCAR was actually fun watching and following.. don't follow it as much as I used to, I'm not even sure if RACING CHAMPIONS still make diecast cars or not.. haven't been searching for any.

These are very carefully selected, only the very special few make it in my collection.

I've collected lot's of different thingys from different categories over the years.

Miami Vice, Hulk Hogan & movie poster memorabilia 'n' stuff. 80's pop culture goodies and all that.

 

Right now I'm collecting Grand Theft Auto & Rockstar Games memorabilia. Also - vinyl records and my personal fave movies on DVD.

Aand since I have a neat new bookshelf (to put together), I'm thinking of filling up a shelve or two with Stephen King's books.

Nothing actually. I'm sick of being surrounded of useless things. When I was younger I collected a lot of stuff which now simply dusts as I don't need it at all. The less you have the better.

These are very carefully selected, only the very special few make it in my collection. 2czdq9z.jpg


My dad worked in various mines so he had some awesome minerals (rocks of a considerable size with crystals) as well as fossils and stuff. My favorites were the pyrite crystals...

I collect AUTOart. However there is a hiatus in my collection right now as nobody has any f'ing money. It all went to my mom's hobby of collecting extremely expensive Lego's. Pisses me off. There's a cool new AUTOart Lamborghini Aventador 50° Anniversario 1/18 launching right now and I'll have to wait until Christmas. No games this year I guess. I need a job LOL!

I also collect traffic signs. All of them are legal:
