    I collect coins to a degree, although not OTT with it, been known to spend them when desperate lol.

    Usually the 'special' 50p and £2 coins with the different designs on the front.

    Have several sets of the London Olympics 2012 50p's and many others.

    In fact I sold a load (160 coins) yesterday as I started to get bored.

    Had a few Kew Gardens 50p's also (rare coin) which I sold at around £40 each lol!

    Trying to hang onto the Olympic sets as these will only increase in value and getting harder each day to come across :)

    I did have a thing for DVD's also but they've also overtaken too much bedroom space so are e-bay bound later this week also :p

    I am a collector of anything related to Queen - the British rock band yeah.

    Vinyls, signed items, concert-books, test-pressings, backstage passes etc.

    I haven't collected actively for a few years, but I still have all the items and I will probably, at some point, start to collect new things again.

    One of my favorite items is a box set called "The Complete Works" from 1985 (video from "Queen Collectables" below).

    Queen :clap:

    WOW Queen, they had some really great songs. Interesting to collect things related to it though as well!

    I like dragons, have afew statues/ornaments not heaps though. I do have alot of trains, seems to be a lot of people who love the Thomas The Tank Engine Tomy/Trackmaster trains, as well as the wooden railway series.

    Especially the older stuff, and hard to find, yr 1992.
    Would love to collect a lot more ornaments, just do not have the room in this house we are in, and I would have loved to have a cacti collection, but since we rent is not worth doing so.

    Since 1981 I collect Panini football stickers with the albums that you can complete.
    Mostly I did it for the Dutch Premier and Second League as they have a yearly returning sticker album.
    But I also did it for special tournaments like European or World championships football.

    I have many completed albums and cherish these a lot.
    Some albums I miss one or 2 stickers and I still roam the online internet marketplaces from time to time to try and get these completed.

    See below a random pic from one of those albums so you have an idea what I am talking about.

    Last year also did one for the Rugby as there was a special Rugby sticker album with all the good teams in it. :)

    Yeah in the past it was possible to order them with an attached order form in the albums.
    Now it is a good way to complete an album because I am old enough to place an order and pay for it haha. :D
    But at the age of 5 or 6 years old there was no way I could accomplish that myself.

    I always tried to avoid this way of completing an album anyway as it is a much bigger achievement to complete the album without ordering specific stickers. :cool:

    Hi,

    I collect autographed photos. I can't begin to say how many I have.

    Most of them have certificates of authenticity.

    Big movie stars, TV stars, etc.

    I used to have 4 fruit machines in my Mom & Dad's garage when I lived with them.

    'Hit the Top' and 'Silver Shadow' £4 token JP (Barcrest??) and 2 x £100 JP 10p play 4-Reel club machines.

    Wouldn't mind one now (but a lot more modern) to use as a Money box for our annual Summer Holiday to the coast but wouldn't want to pay much for it as I'm not so sure it would be used much these days.

    Love a Barcrest 'Up N Over' or 'Psycho Cash Beast' or Project Coin 'Jackpot 7's' or Barcrest 'Sunset Boulevard' with original Chip but these are so rare and only occasionally pop up at some seaside resorts with the dreaded £5 JP conversion only.

    Plays brilliant on 20p/£4.80 version. Very rare these days!

    Yes indeed, that's the one I want lol

    Our old arcade had 3 in a row in the early 90's great machines for converting tokens to cash after I'd 'bashed' the JPM Fireball for £4.80 repeats galore :thumbsup:
