What am I collecting right now in 2011? Hmmm.

-- DC Universe Classics. But Wv17 was the first skip for me and it felt like a big deal too.

-- Marvel Universe. I still consider this a real pick-and-choose line for me, but I 'pick' a whole lot more than 'choose' lately.

-- Marvel Minimates. They just keep chugging along!

-- Mattel Ghostbusters. Mostly the 6-Inch and all of them thanks to having a Subscription. I have the four 12-Inch figures too, but I am on the fence on whether I will get the 12-Inch two packs or even keep the ones I have that are still in the box.

-- McFarlane Sports Picks. I will still buy the occasional NHL case (can't find NHL locally!) and pick and choose the NFL and NHL figure when I don't want enough of a series to warrant purchasing a case. Plus, I have discovered the joy of autographed (NHL) bases. I hope to get my bases for Tony Esposito and Gordie Howe signed next month!

-- The Munsters. Already pre-ordered! Just give me one basic figure of each and I am good to go!

-- (some) Hot Wheels. Batmobiles, Ecto-1s, Time Traveling Deloreans... it's the only reason I look at Hot Wheels and they are cheap (if you can find them)!

I still grab the occasional figure outside of these lines, like The Tick, but that's rare these days. I have a Thor and Cap movie figure (only the basic ones and a Red Skull), mainly to go with my movie Iron Man. I will grab 6-Inch versions of these, if made.

I do have interest in Mattel's Voltron, Round2Corp's Peanuts and Rudolph reboots, some Marvel Select (Disney Exclusive Classic Avengers, Classic Colossus) and the Captain Action reboot (again, Round2Corp). But none of those are definite for me (I have quite the 6-Inch Memory Lane/Round2Corp Holiday Collection! And Marvel Legends is my Marvel scale of choice) and the upcoming (expensive) Matty.com LOSH Box Set takes priority over and of those items.

That's quite the short list compared to even a couple of years ago for me! No More SSC Star Wars (unless it's someone I really want from the OT), no more 13-Inch DC Direct, no more DC Infinite Heroes, no more Ghostbusters Movie Minimates (apparently) and no more Dc Retro-Heroes.

I collect the five inch Doctor who figures/ playsets from Character Options. I would love to collect more but this is hard/ expensive enough as it is! :D

Ugh. I know. What's getting really expensive is all of those boxed sets they are doing that have slight variations...

Oh this past Davros/ Dalek gauntlet was a joke! I'm not a fan of Character Options. -laughs- Not in the least and ever since their fear of the global ecconomy it's been one senseless re-release after another. Upteen Davros/ Dalek sets, the love for roto cast stuff, the Sontaran Spheres not to mention a zillion and one Doctors. Yes it's his line and all but come on! :D

Time for an update, as it's almost been a year.

Shellhead wrote:
Let's see:

DCUC (not quite a completist, but pretty close)
No significant change here, although I'm skipping the majority of Wave 17
MU (villains, and most Avenger related figures)
Expanded quite a bit, getting about 75% of these now
Marvel Legends (what little there is of it nowadays)
No change, although I hope be a picker and chooser in 2012
MOTUC (villains mostly, with a few of the cooler good guys thrown in)
No change here
SW (I have massive amounts of these, so I pick and choose a lot more now than I did in the past)
Getting even pickier, pretty much just Clone Wars figures I think are cool
Iron Man (Every Iron Man line there's been, plus most of his figures from Marvel Lines)
No change
Aquaman (Just about every action figure of him and his related friends/foes)
No change

To a much lesser extent:

GIJOE: 25th pulled me back in, certain figures only, no vehicles
Much more into this line now. I've gotten the vast majority of the past several waves and even a few vehicles when I can find them at Ross
Transformers: Currently, the occasional G1 figures/remake that hit the shelves (mostly Decepticons)
No change, especially since the line is pretty much over

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


In addition, I intend to collect the Classic Thundercats line and the 6 inch Young Justice line.

But over all, I'm fairly consistent with last year. I like what I like. :lol:

My list at the moment:

Marvel Universe (figures I want)
Iron Man 2 (if I ever find the last wave)
Green Lantern (if I ever find the last couple figures)
Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides (if I can ever find wave 2)
Halo (waiting for next wave)
Star Wars (only original 3 movies)

I think it's pretty clear why I haven't gotten a thing in months. Just picked up the new Harry Potter 2-packs for my wife, but I haven't made an action figure purchase for myself in a long, long time.
