I saw a similar thread started in the GG forum and thought it was cool, curious to see what my fellow Long Islanders are into. What is everyones collection focus? Which companies, movies, shows, comics, characters, busts, statues, maquettes, etc.

What I'm collecting:

Star Wars
- Hasbro Clone Wars & Titaniums (when these 2 lines end, I'm done w/Hasbro SW)
- Gentle Giant Animated Maquettes (on the fence w/the new CW maqs, might go with the Kotos and stick to GG OT & PT only)
- Medicom SD VCD line (minus repaints), can't wait for Darth Maul

Transformers:
- Animated (selective)
- Universe Classics 2.0 (very selective, just redone G1 characters)
- Robot Heroes (G1 up to the G1 movie)

NECA: TMNT

Robotech/Macross:
- Toynami 1/100 line and the upcoming MPC Beta fighters
- Yamato new 1/60 v2.0 line (maybe, they are pricey)

I'm getting stretched thin man, hahaha... too much cool sh*t coming out this fall which is forcing me to be selective even with what I'm definitely collecting.

I'm strictly Hasbro 3 3/4" figs with a few vehicles sprinkled in. I'll be collecting both CW and TLC figs. I'd love the BMF but already have 3 Falcons and no more room....
By the way, it was good to see you again at MM! It was a good time.

I was going to "get out" but I realized you would just pull me back in.

I used to collect anything and everything but ran out of room. Now I just can't bring all that stuff with me across country. Simple math. Probably going to be selling a large chunk of it to Amok.

I doubt that the vintage will be part of that sale but we have to see what he comes up with.

Plain & Simple - I collect carded action figures, 99.9% Star Wars. Occasionally I will but multi-packs if I feel like that figure won't hit a card later on. Why so limited? Because I get them autographed. I have over 100 autographed figures, with all but 2 being Star Wars (the other 2 are Farscape).

Very cool D_Lynch. I only have 2 figures signed. I will probably get more when the opportunity comes. I have a lot of 8x10s too. I try to get everything personalized so it's gotta be in person unless its an OfficialPix type thing. Its cool to meet everyone.
