We haven't had one of these threads here at the new digs yet so I'll start the ball rolling.

What toy lines do you currently collect?

Mine has paired down quite a bit over the last year-- mainly GIJoe with some Marvel Legends tossed in for flavor. (Although if it weren't for Galactus there was no way I would have picked up all of the figures in this last wave.) I used to do some HALO and my fiance used to be into Gundam MSIA and Muppets but those lines appear to have dried up now.

I am looking forward to the Marvel Super Hero Showdown simply because we'll finally have 1:18 scale Marvel characters! (Cobra Commander, Dr. Doom. Dr. Doom, Cobra Commander.)

So, what do you collect?

Great thread! I’ve been faithfully buying these lines:

DC Direct
Marvel Legends (ML, Spidey, Hulk, Xmen)
GI Joe 3 ¾”
JLU
SOTA Street Fighter
TF Alternators
Hellboy
Heroclix
MOTU *sniff*
some Microman
Godzilla

And of course, I’m always trying to finish off my collections of RAH Joes, Super Powers, Secret Wars, M.A.S.K. and other vintage lines. I also pick up other random items like statues, plates or other funky stuff. Man, I just don’t have room anymore!!
:lol:

I'm really looking forward to Marvel Super Hero Showdown too! Along with Marvel Figure Factory, Hellboy comic line, Sigma Six...and I'm sure there's more I've forgotten...

Ooh - good question! I started out as a kid collecting MOTU, then moved onto G.I. Joe. Got quite a few Super Powers when I was a kid, and when Toy Biz started producing their dozens upon dozens of Marvel figs, I got 'em all. Bought quite a lot of McFarlane stuff, too - basically anything super hero oriented, I bought. Marvel Legends changed everything, though.

I now collect basically only Marvel Legends/Spider-Man and the Marvel Movie figs, with some random stuff thrown in. I get some DC Direct stuff, but usually just core characters. Some 1/18 scale military toys (the old Joe fan in me), and any random figs that I can use for customizing purposes.

Minimates
Marvel Legends
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
DCD
Army of Darkness
SOTA Street Fighter
Spider-man Classics
NECA figures(picking and choosing right now been a bit disappointed by them recently).

Recently got some BBi Elite Force figures(1:18 ), which are *awesome*. I'd collect Plan B if they released new stuff(hint hint). Also started in on AA's Star Trek figures finally.

Will get all of SOTA's Cthulu figures when they come out, also their Darkstalkers, Micronauts and Charmed series 2. Damn they put out some great stuff.

The Tekken 5 figures are a must as well...

Sota is offering a lot of good stuff but I just can't afford them all right now. I'm definitely going to keep on collecting street fighter. I want to collect darkstalkers as well but it is just too much. I will probably just buy a few of the darkstalkers instead of buying a set.

Pretty much Marvel Legends and whatever catches my eye from any other line (IE female figures). I have a bunch of space for MLs and one shelf devoted entirely to female figures... yeah...

Right now it's MicroMan, Street Fighter, Justice League, and I'll sometimes pick up some of the Marvel Legends and DC Direct figures depending on the characters.

Can't wait for Toy Biz's Superhero Showdown though! I'm gonna' have to get a second job just to support that habit!

What do you think? It's not as huge as some of your collections but I'm quite happy with it. =)

I collect mostly DC Direct, Marvel Legends and Spiderman Classics, Mattel JLU, Mattel Batman, Palisades Muppets and a whole bunch of miscellaneous stuff.
