Just thought I'd bump up an old thread to see if anyone's tastes have changed over the last couple of years. Its funny reading back through a couple of my old posts and seeing how much my collecting has changed since then...in just a matter of a few years. For me, Star Wars continues to be #1, and the basic figure line always will be. I've tried to streamline in any "other" Star Wars stuff I collect this year, limiting mainly to OT Galactic Heroes and Unleashed (big), which has been next to nothing this year so far. There are always things here and there that I'll pick up, but for the most part, it revolves around the basic figure line.
As far as the "other" lines, at this point it is basically limited to comic-based stuff. I have about 10 LOTR figures that I proudly display, but that line has come and gone. Any other lines I was interested in I basically got into way too late, so I decided not to. The comic stuff has gotten more money/attention over the past couple of years though. At this point, its mainly Marvel stuff...Legends and Classics. I started off getting just Spidey and a few X-Men figures, but that has branched off into a little of everything now. I've still kept Spidey, and to a lesser extent X-Men, as the "mainstays" overall, but I've been picking up other characters as well. I've had some DC purchases too, mainly consisting of JLU figures at this point, but I'm looking forward to getting some of the upcoming DC Superheroes figures as well. Aside from that, I think that's just about it for what I'm collecting now. Its basically this priority at this point:
1. Star Wars
2. Marvel Legends/Classics
3. DC Superheroes/JLU
We'll see what happens with the Marvel lines after Hasbro takes over next year, but if it is something drastically different and/or crappy, I might be wrapping that up at the end of this year as well. With the news that Mattel didn't get the entire DC license, the "DC Superheroes" collecting might be short-lived too. I guess its not necessarily a bad thing, it would probably be good for me to focus on one area of collecting for awhile
. Have your interests changed over the years as well?
