Let's see:

DCUC (not quite a completist, but pretty close)
MU (villains, and most Avenger related figures)
Marvel Legends (what little there is of it nowadays)
MOTUC (villains mostly, with a few of the cooler good guys thrown in)
SW (I have massive amounts of these, so I pick and choose a lot more now than I did in the past)
Iron Man (Every Iron Man line there's been, plus most of his figures from Marvel Lines)
Aquaman (Just about every action figure of him and his related friends/foes)

To a much lesser extent:

GIJOE: 25th pulled me back in, certain figures only, no vehicles
Transformers: Currently, the occasional G1 figures/remake that hit the shelves (mostly Decepticons)

Now that I look at it all, that's a lot of stuff. :oops:

Super Powers (all foreign and domestic toys & ephemera)

Star Wars (vintage loose NM/complete figures right now)

DC Universe Classics (Super Powers related characters only, including 4th wave and beyond)

Justice League Unlimited (yup, I'm back in)

Hasbro Star Wars Vintage Collection (picking and choosing MOC)

Gabriel The Lone Ranger (keeping an eye out for the MOC multi-packs and playset)

Gulliver Future Warriors (got rid of everything but the MOC figures...still looking for a Dynamo to complete that set)

Vintage DC Comics memorabilia (mostly 1970's and back)

Micronauts (MOC/MIB only...picked up a couple Time Travelers so far)

Weebles & Fisher Price Little People MIB (nothing purchased yet...still looking around for good deals)

Any other vintage MOC action figure that's cheap and in nice shape (whatever catches my eye...that's how I got into the Lone Ranger stuff)...might go after Kenner's Butch & Sundance next to complement it.

Peace,

Chip

Justice League Unlimited is my current number one. I am missing only Volcana, a few repaints, and whatever everyone else found in the last week.

DC Universe Classics - I started off picking and choosing, then eventually completed various waves. At the beginning of the year I decided to stop collecting the line, but changed my mind in a toy buying fit. I do not have 100% of releases, but probably better than 85%. I am looking forward to struggling to find the Ultra Humanite and Validus waves.

Kenner Star Wars - I cannot pass them if they are being sold second hand, particularly Hammerhead. I am still deciding on The Gentle Giants figures, they may beyond my spending habits.

Muppets - I have most of the Palisades Muppets (only a few exclusive remain unaffordable and elusive). This is probably my favorite collection, perfect mix of characters and playsets. It is an awesome display. I wish the line had continued into the planned Sesame Street collection.

I love the character glasses McDonald’s and Burger King put out in the early 80's for the Star Wars movies and the Great Muppet Caper. I search these out at second hand stores and flea markets. I have various other Muppet memorabilia, including lunch boxes, ornaments, and older toys. I am not a fan of plush Muppets.

Marvel Legends - mostly Avengers and assorted bad guys. I skipped the X-Men, but tried to get most of the street level heroes (which paid off in terms of who is an Avenger these days).

Hallmark Ornaments - I am a sucker for Christmas ornaments and for the past few years the Hallmark ornaments have been the only Star Wars purchases that I have made. Their Disney, Hanna Barbera, and Pixar ornaments are very cool. They have been producing Muppet ornaments in recent years.

I have too many DC Directs, but never considered myself a collector. That has always been a pick and choose collection.


I have never sold old toys. I box things up for a time, they have traveled around with me so I have a bunch of stuff from the 70's and 80's around.

I was initially hesitant to post, but after I got started typing, I realized it wasn't that bad of a list. Denial is bad for you, anyway. 8)

Lines listed per category in order of importance to me. Only lines I currently collect are listed.

Completist:

DC Universe Classics (All figures up to wave 13, all two-packs, current five-pack, and SDCC exclusives; only missing Gleek and two variants from wave 13)
Masters of the Universe Classics
BioShock (NECA; unless they release anything else, I'm all done/complete)

Close to being a completist:

Justice League Unlimited
Star Wars
World of Warcraft

Cherry Pick from:

Marvel Legends (partly defunct)
Various 1:6 scale items
Various Play Arts figures
Various DC Direct lines

Im only collecting JLU, trying to be a completist but I don't buy the characters that I don't like or variants that I don't like, for example the Justice Guild, which Im glad I didn't buy it because now we have Alan Scott and Jay Garrick on the way!
Also I often buy a DCUC, if its a character that I like and if it is cheap lol.

I'll have to start out with a disclaimer. I'm not a completist so I don't buy everything from anything. I'm more selective than ever. So....

My True Loves:

STAR WARS (Hasbro and Sideshow, as well as prop replicas by eFX)
TRANSFORMERS (particulalry Japanese offerings and things that harken back to G1)
HOT TOYS (limited to movie properties I like, mostly DC and Marvel movie stuff so far)
80's VINTAGE (haven't bought much recently though)

Heavy Affairs:

MOTU Classics
GHOSTBUSTERS Classics

Passing Dalliances:

DCUC
GI Joe (not often but something always gets my attention every once in a while)

I collect:
Super Powers
DC Universe Classics
Captain Power
Star Wars (vintage and modern)
Batman (pretty much anything)
Swamp Thing (vintage)
Star Trek TNG (galoob)

I was collecting vintage GI Joes but recently sold that collection to purchase a 1955 Oldsmobile Super Rocket 88. I guess you could call that a toy as well.

I also have a fascination with figures that glow in the dark and ones that are made of clear plastic. Weird, I know but they intrigue me.

Ha, that's cool. Would love to see a pic of that collection. Lights on and off.

I've got some really eclectic tastes. Currently I'm collecting:

JLU - 3pks only
Marvel Universe
Iron Man 2 (3 3/4")
Spider-Man (only Spidey figures)
Transformers (only Cheetor figures - currently have complete collection)

Plus lots of older series. I'm not a completist, I get what I want, nothing more.

My wife is focused on Dr. Who figures.

I'd love to get more, there just isn't anything else out there that appeals to me.

If DCIH had not come along I would probably be doing JLU, but I would want the Justice Guild, Justice Lords, Justice Society. I like different versions of the same team.
