    Well that and the 'Film room' ..... but I came home from work on day and my daughters dvd collection was stacked in it, along side some of my stuff.. "I thought my collection could go in here too daddy" she said..

    The only thing I really collect now is music, bit of a completist so if I listen to an artist I like, I have to own everything they've done.

    As a kid it was all about Transformers, but I ended up selling all mine for a few hundred quid and binged it all on Playstation games. Fool. :(

    I have a collection of the silver mint coin collection, every year since i was born, including a few of the royals anniversaries ect.
    I actually have no intrest in it, but it was a birthday present for my 18th!
    Looked into the value of them, doubt theyll be worth anything for atleast another generation!

    Nice collection, although yours does appear to be just mainstream merchandise rather than specific film stuff. The casino chips and cards that I got were used in Casino Royale, and the promotional case from tomorrow never dies was a limited press edition with various sponsors products plus info about the film itself. Both have a certificate of authentication as well. Oh and on the star wars theme, I've seen the hand glove that C3PO used in one of the original films for sale.......over 12grand just for the glove! :eek:

    Vintage top trump cards.

    Used to have virtualy every set released back in the early 80's.

    For the most part there easy to pick up on the bay.. gained lots of packs for 99p, considering the 30 year gap, and remembering i used to pay 70p back then... it's one of my less expensive collect um'ups.
