Title: Anyone Collect Anything???
Post by: Pinkerbell on August 28, 2009, 10:19:51 am
I collect toys from the 80's. If you knew me from the previous boards then you'd know im addicted HAHA

I love the toys that came out from 1981 to 1991 primarily and im an avid ebayer trying to find everything in one type like Barbie.. I actually at one point had almost everything that ever was put out by Hasbro for JEM and the Holograms ( i was missing a VERY few pieces and one is a rarity that only 3 were made ). I just want to be able to get it and then take pics of it write down the specs on it and then resell it later and make a profit. Its an awesome fun hobby of mine.

Yes im a geek!

I have 4 consecutive years of baseall cards from the 1970's. All in books, in plastic. Does that get any geekier?

I used to collect smurfs. Only a modest collection mind you, I always wanted a smurf village when I was small and when I grew up I decided to fulfill that ambition.

I do intend to collect all the old Hasselblad lenses sometime though. It would just be so great to have the ultimate collection that someone in the 1970's could only ever dream about owning.

Unfortunately space doesn't allow us to collect anything. I've really begun to appreciate how stuff costs you money beyond the original price you have to pay for it., especially here in the UK where housing is so expensive and small. The stuff you own has to be transported around when you move, or put into storage. The more stuff you own the bigger the place you either need to rent or to buy. And so much of it ends up unused, just taking up space and being a liability. Or there's the guilty pain of having to throw away something perfectly useable for example because you were given it for free and have no use for it. The more stuff you own, the less chance there is of finding the right item when you need it too!

I'd love to be able to sell it all and move into a campervan but there would still be so much of it that I need to keep, for example, all my scientific books, my camera equipment, outdoor equipment and computers. I would also be really sad to say goodbye to items that I really saved long and hard to get but which could still be useful in the future, for example my scuba diving equipment or my paraglider.

Hello,

I for my part like collecting books, e.g.  historical novels and music of all kinds on cds.
Title: Re: Anyone Collect Anything???

Hello again,

for example I have some books of Jack London, Jules Verne, Alexandre Dumas, The Hornblower Triilogy and  other historical novels.

I collect rocks, fossils and especially meteorites.

Most of them are packed away though as we've moved around so much. When we finally settle down I'll have a display cabinet to put some museums to shame!

I love collecting Transformers and other robot toys. People can say the price of vintage stuff is out of hand, almost nothing compared to how much some of the newer stuff costs. I'd be lucky to find a new Soul of Chogokin for under $90!
Title: Re: Anyone Collect Anything???
Post by: Pinkerbell on August 29, 2009, 06:38:18 pm
Hmmm ill have to keep in mind the Unicorn thing ;)

I too collect shot glasses... well i did and stopped but apparently my family didnt get the "memo" b/c my mom still buys me them when she goes various places. Its a bit out of hand. But i have a lot of pretty neat ones. My favorite is one from the old Atlantic City Playboy club before it got shut down. Its very heavy though and im afraid my cats will break it so it gets put up on a high shelf with some other stuff.

I collect Coloring Books as well- but only from the 1980's and 1990's ( like nothing past probably 1995) and mainly those from cartoons and tv. Again huge geek here!

I think its great to see what other's collect b/c it gives you insight on who they are etc.

Yes, it does! In the books of vintage erotica, people were reported to collect pubes of all their (former) lovers! :45
A difficult task nowadays in the "metro times", less and less you can find any... :786

Many technical books really are completely useless, a waste of space and should be recycled into something useful.

Things can turn obsolete rather fast.

You're right! Sometimes I pass by some book stores which still sell something like "Windows 98 tips and tricks" for no more than 1 Euro...

I collect some things you probably wouldn't expect out of me....... I collect coins, yeah it's not typically a "girls" hobby, but I find it fascinating...... also old historical postcards and documents (the term for those type of things is ephemera)

I have a bunch of coins that my dad had collected... also stamps. I have not gone through them. I do have 5 old US dollar bills... when I say old, I mean one from 1935, and 4 from 1957. I can't imagine how the '35 lasted 75 years... but it is in very good condition. Now, I don't collect bills, just think it cool to have.

Lots of meteorites! They're mostly with a friend who does some teaching with them just now.

I have a tiny moon rock sample - not an Apollo sample, but from a lunar meteorite. I also have a few Mars meteorite samples. They're tiny though.

I've worked with moonrocks as well - a picture of one is on this thread: http://internationalyn.org/forum/index.php/topic,527.735.html (http://internationalyn.org/forum/index.php/topic,527.735.html)

i used to have a substantial collection of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers toys from the 80s and 90s - a lot of them boxed or with packaging. 

i sold the lot on ebay a couple of years ago for quite a bit of money.

i have small collections now. 

i have a crate of Nintendo merchandise and trading cards (prized items include a complete set of 1980s Nintendo trading cards, all the Super Mario McDonalds Happy Meal toys unopened with boxes and the lenticular that went above the menu in the retaurant showing the toys, and a Japanese Legend of Zelda card game).

i also have a small collection of Godzilla stuff which would be larger if i had space and money.

But seriously, whenever a computer virus tries to mess up my system, I put it in a zip file and add it to my collection.  I have this one that comes in a zip file to start with, and is so compressed that it will fill your entire hard drive if you try to extract the stuff in it.  Such fun.

I guess you are talking about the virus that used a zip quine. Basically, it uses a zip that contains itself. So when you unzip it, you get the original zip file which you can unzip to find itself again, and so on for infinity. The virus uses it as a mean to fight the antivirus that when seeing a zip files, extract it to see what's in it, starting an infinite loop where it extracts more stuff until the hard drive is full.

Rather self-defeating for the virus as often forces a clean reinstall.

Not quite: this doesn't have an infinite amount of data, just 4500 terabytes worth.  Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zip_bomb) has an article about if you're interested.  (I'd upload it, but I'm pretty sure that violates the rules of the forum).

I have many small collections.

One is carry over from my brother who is know dead.  Anycase, though him and other sources, I have many old toy cars, like hotwheels from 70s in original packaging, or even better yet original star wars figures in guess what packaging.   Though that isnt what I am most proud of.  I have my own collection of rocks.  As young boy you kind of go though phases of being an astronaut or into Dinos.  Well I never fully grew up.  I have nice collection of different types of rocks, minerals and so on. Some cool specimins I have is amber with fossilized Insect in it(DINO DNA LOL), Tectites(glass like beads formed from either volcanos, meterites, or nuke explosions), many types of fossils, and few prized meterites.  I actualy have good size meterite which though good friend who is into the trade helped me get.

Ive recently started collecting shields or plaques of the various units, regiments and other defence and military entities and establishments i have been in or attached to over the years. Some of which have since been disbanded. Part of the fun is hunting them out before they can go on the wall. You can definately tell a lowering in the quality of the woodwork and mouldings of the newer ones compared to the older ones.

At Dan93

   I can relate to the garage tools and sighns etc, within my militaria collections i have been collecting the tools that came with the various military vehicles i have as well as WW2 era US army carpenters, mechanics and armourers tools and rolls, chests etc some of this stuff i highly sought after by collectors so goes for silly prices at times. Similarly i have a large collection of Gerrycans and in hunting them out i see lots of historic civilian gas station or oil company items and car company advertisement signs items which are highly saught after too. I love all that old stuff too but cant collect everything i suppose eh
   My latest aquisitions have been additions to my military radio and Artillery collections but the rarest was a few additions to my WW2 GIs personal gear collection - original unused military issue shaving cream and roll of toilet paper (Yep that what i said) which make an unusual addition to my private WW2 museum

To Dan93,  yes many a time i have had to look at some item or other and not bid (booo Hooo) presently looking at a complete genuine WW2 GI field kitchen to replace the partial one i have, but dont think i should commit the funds right now. As for the loo paper it is a small roll as included in a ration pack with a label wrapped around it marked "Made for the U.S. Army by the maker of Waldorf A scott tissue, US Patent Office, Scottpaper, Chester P.A." it always gets attention when i display it with the gear at a public display. Strangely enough people love seeing or learning of those small items that are part of a WW2 soldiers  life that they never think of.

Dust bunnies.  I keep a large collection of dust bunnies under the bed all winter long, then release them to the wild every spring.  Apparently they reproduce like all other bunnies and re-infiltrate the room the following autumn so that they have a warm place to spend the winter.

Unlike your dust bunnies I never release the souls I collect.  For some reason they never want to come back to me  L8789

To Dan93

      Well i surcomed to temptation and bought the WW2 US Army field kitchen. So now have one complete in every way straight out of the box never opened since it was packed in 1944 and one partial one with replica base and LP Gas burner instead of the original petrol powered system. And you will like my latest aquisition, a WW2 era British army broad arrow marked BSB large Tap and Die Set in box plus another different set with box missing. I am presently cleaning them up and retoring the remaining steel box as they have suffered abit from surface rust. But at least they were free and so far they are cleaning up nicely.

I collect coins. Mostly Morgan dollars- which are awesome. I really liked the toned coins. I also like the Perth Mint products (kookaburra, lunar, etc). I also have the Royal Canadian Mint Wildlife series.

I think I will also start to collect colt and S&W revolvers at some point. they are just so cool!

I collect some things you probably wouldn't expect out of me....... I collect coins, yeah it's not typically a "girls" hobby, but I find it fascinating...... also old historical postcards and documents (the term for those type of things is ephemera)

And I also collect unicorns..... figurines, artwork, anything....... over 300 of them so far (they make a great Christmas or birthday present BTW!!!! hint, hint  :234567  )

I am thoroughly impressed that a young woman is a numismatist!  I have a friend from college that owns a coin shop, so he has helped me broaden my collection to include precious metals and paper money!  If you're interested, I could send you a link to his shop's website.

I am collecting "memories". These includes the following:
1. 3 pages of a diary of my close friend. 15 years ago.
2. a plastic bag that my close friend gave me almost 15 years ago.
3. a wooden ID when I went to a Christian retreat. 15 years ago.
4. 3 US dollars that my father gave me when I was a teenager.
5. letters. <-- When I was a teenager, I used to get love letters from girls. Now, not anymore..
6. an old train card.
7. Lots of PS3 games and lil 3DSs.
8. and other more private things..

So.. what do you collect?

I don't really collect anything, I don't believe. But I love to look at old coins and stamps.  They make me think.

Like when you look at a stamp, torn from the envelope..... did some mother place that stamp there, ages ago, to send a letter or card to her child? Or was it an announcement of a birth? Or a birthday party invitation? Was it a social letter, or a family letter, or a legal notice?

The same with coins ... I always wonder where they have been. If a quarter is dated 1965 ... in those 50 years, how many people have touched it? How many pockets has it been in? Did someone use it to purchase a newspaper? (Heh... surely a newspaper only cost 25c at some point in those 50 years.) Did some child buy an ice cream with it? How many people actually looked at it, versus just pocketing it?

Perhaps it is good that I do not collect things, as it would take my entire life to think through the possibilities.

I also collect the first volumes of manga I enjoy, because buying the complete set for like 20 or so would be insanely pricey and takes up room.

When The World Ends With You was relevant, I collected mini pin buttons, but those are probably long gone.

Edit: should also mention my own slot car toys and my dads vintage stuff too as seen in my avatar. Dunno how I forgot that when it is right in front of me on screen lol

If model cars, nice! And if real cars.. expensive but even more awesome! Been into cars since I can remember but don't really collect any model cars anymore, or real for that matter. I fantasize to have Jay Leno's garage one day.

Real cars haha. Not that big of a collection yet and I'm considering selling of one. I'm into Japanese late 80 to early 00 sports cars, mostly Nissan and even more Nissan S-chassis

Nice! What models specifically! Love the Z series of Nissans, new and old. Can't wait to see the new one coming out in person. Looks like a nice blend of new and old.

Why’s that?
Because supposedly it supports the “theory” of evolution which is considered false in Islam. It is a really stupid reason.

I still have part of my once massive Pokemon card collection

Now I'd say I have a collection of computers and computer parts but it's rather small as I sold a bunch of it recently.

I guess I can say I have a collection of used computers and computer parts as well.. aka mine is just old junk that I haven't thrown out yet. And of course, my collection of old cables that I'll never use and for some reason still keep..  :laughing

Same here. I have two broken laptops (3 if you count the one I’m using) need to get rid but no money for a new one. And I have no idea what most of the cables are from.

I like the S chassis specifically. The new z looks great, I usually have a hard time with reboots of classic cars but that one hits just right

@Fishandchips Sorry for the late reply. I'm collecting nude art mostly. I'm fascinated by how unique everyone is. We are all different. Even identical twins have differences.

I completely agree with you. The nude form is the truest version of ourselves. I've always been fascinated in seeing the anatomical differences between identical twins since usually you only see the parts that aren't covered by clothes like hair and faces.

Yes!! When I’m traveling, I always go to flea markets to collect old war pins and medals! If I’m in the US I’ll look for us medals, but I love when I’m traveling in an ex-Soviet country. These countries flea markets have so many medals from WWII! And the prices are amazing so I end up with a whole bunch on them in my suitcase lol!

I guess I could link my topics here too. Done one showing the old Dublo three rail collection but not so much the newer 90s 00s collection because basically I’ve got shit loads in boxes that would be a nightmare to dig out. I’ll post some in future as I get things out for any reason

The only more modern models I’ve got posted here for now.

I have a jar full of neat rocks and shells I picked up when I was younger. I don't contribute to it at all anymore, but I love going back and revisiting it on the occasion for memories.

You better keep them, i think they're unfashionable toys and in case you want to sell them, take a look at bricklink. It's an useful website for having an idea of the value of what you own.

I doubt I’d be able to tell them what exactly I’ve got as sets got mixed up so much that even I don’t know what’s what anymore. I’ll keep them in mind though.
