Collecting

Anyone into collecting anything?  I'm thinking more of the physical object variety, as opposed to Pokemon or speed run records.

I'm getting into the fascinating but unfortunately expensive world of horology (specifically watches at this point).  I've uncovered quite the slew of websites, forums, and blogs dedicated to it (much like f.ds is here for Dominion).  It's also gotten me back onto eBay after years of inactivity...

Any interesting items you collect?  Amazing collections?  Crazy obsessions?

I collect board games, although my collection isn't that amazing. I would also collect guns and other weapons but since those are pretty expensive, my collection so far is just one sword and one airgun.

If I had more motivation, I've thought of collecting elements.

Did it bug you when Blu-Ray came out?  I had hundreds of DVDs, but with the advent of HD and digital downloads, stopped buying them.

X-wing miniatures game, and a number of other minis collections.

Miscellaneous hobby tools for a wide range of stalled-out and continuing hobbies.

Vinyl Records

I have around 5000 or so. Huge range of genres, eras, etc.

Stopped buying them a few years ago when we started having kids and I sold my turntables and converted the listening room into a nursery. Hope to have a listening room again one day. Occasionally buy vinyl at shows which I hardly ever get to go to anymore.

Also guns and ammunition although that hobby is also on hiatus with the kids.

Finally, some silver coins such as Britannia, Philharmonics, Canadian Maples, and the Perth stuff (koalas, lunars, kookaburras), as well as the short lived ATB USA coin set in silver.

My biggest collection habit is with movies and TV shows. I have a decent number of movies and a ton of TV seasons. I also have a collection of Elemental Hero cards from Yugioh.

The rest of my collections are very small or specific. For example, I have a physical copy of every Green Day and Muse album.

This is all aside from Dominion, of course. If a new Dominion set or promo comes out, it has to be in my hands as soon as possible.

For awhile I dreamed of collecting all the Arden Shakespeares.  I'd buy them at used book stores, etc.  2nd edition is definitely doable, but 1st would be amazing.

I find it amusing somehow that you need to introduce Games Workshop :)

Never really got into it. But Warhammer is quite the institution.

Blu-Ray, not at all. I just see them as the latest type of DVDs. Now I'll buy Blu-Ray or DVD; usually won't pay extra for Blu-Ray unless it's a movie where it really matters. Digital on the other hand does bug me a bit; because I can see a day when physical media no longer exists; and I'll be forced to switch.

I prefer SBG. I know I don't need to buy a new book every few years for my army, and when you have 5, that would be quite an investment.

I have a box of several hundred CDs the local used shop didn't take when I decided to get rid of all of them (also thanks to kids). I almost put them on the curb a couple weeks ago when I was cleaning out the attic. You can have them if you can come pick them up.
