  5. Earthworm Jim
  6. Mortal Kombat
  7. Megman X

SEGA MEGADRIVE

  1. Mortal Kombat 3
  2. Fatal Fury
  3. FIFA 95
  4. Mortal Kombat 2 (The best)
  5. Samurai Showdown
  6. Robocop vs Terminator

I've got some other consoles too but I can't seem to remember most of what I had. Sometimes I'd lend a friend a cartridge or a game and then woosh it never came back or got loaned out to someone else. Fun days and my mom was nice enough to bring them all back home when they moved. I sometimes wonder if I should plug them in eventually but I don't think I ever will.

Not so much collecting these days as have collected over the years.. 

Records mostly, stuff ranging from the 70's right through to cant remember when.. got about 2000 in total of Singles, Albums, 10+12 Inch, and various cassettes... 

Got some old Comics up in the loft from my early youth as well, might have a sort through one day or maybe just leave all that to the kids when I am gone...

I collect the Crystal Palace powerpods much to the frustration and embarrassment to my girlfriend. I was robbed of the opportunity of having them when I was younger because we were shite and they'll stop making them again soon once they realise were shite again. Plus its a cheap easy present for estranged family members to buy me for Christmas instead of fucking chocolate.

I'm tempted to roll back the years and fill up the World Cup sticker book this time around for the sake of nostalgia. I remember collecting Shoot Out cards in what must have been about 2006. Good times.

match-day programmes dating back to mid-90s. 

Mainly starting from when my dad used to buy them and they were more prevalent those days before social media exploded. It was pretty much the only way you could get info on the club and the ongoings inside it without actually knowing anyone in the club. 

There used to be kids games in there (where's the ball, crosswords, guess the player etc) - not sure if it's still in the current ones though. Must have nearly 1000 programmes? The Cup Final ones are probably more valuable than your standard league games.

This was actually something I considered doing a while back. Decided against it but it's something I may consider in the future.

I don't collect anything but my GF loves to collect penny presses of all the places we go to. I don't know why, she just does the loon.

The sad thing now is whenever I am away without her somewhere I'm keeping my eyes out for a penny press machine.

How has this happened? So so sad...

I always wanted to collect matchday programmes but then I realised it's 2017 and not 1997

Pretty much every Merlin or Panini sticker book from mid/late 90s through to the early 00s stocked away somewhere.

I used to collect posters from Kerrang! magazine xD. Chucked them all away though when having a big clear out.

You should try and get some of the retro machines like a classic Gameboy if you have the fascination. I heard there were reworks in the wild and they aren't that expensive.

I suppose its all about the timing of it all. Joel Schuster never imagined, nor could he have, about the popularity of that comic and neither could anyone else. I now wait for the madness to ensue when people start hunting for Avengers issues. I have a #3 issue from way back in the day i think the 60s and a lot of other oddities that I have collected over the years by visiting comic book shops and just reading through them. Would I sell them? Not a chance. Too much sentimental value attached to let them go. The art is terrible haha but for back then they were fantastic. 

Its also a bit sad, but makes sense, about how all these comic publications like Marvel, DC, Image, etc are reprinting these issues with upgraded visuals to just tie into the movies/shows and their releases. Infinity Gauntlet is a great arc to read but would it fetch as much as a #1 Spiderman or a #1 Batman or as you mentioned a #1 Superman in AC? Definitely not.

Sounds like we have similar tastes in women.

My GF is a big Star Wars nut. Wouldn't think so to look at her but she's got an inner geek about her.

Lot's of stuff she's got but what she's most bizarrely into is Star Wars Lego sets. 

Loves building them. Her collection is growing.

Looks like our girls would really hit it off. Mine has her Star Wars lego sets too. A smaller Millennium Falcon and lego Hans. She lost pieces of her Destroyer during the time we shifted home. I had my share of fun assembling 1000+ plus pieces of thag destroyer. She plans to buy it again.
