Well, its been about 6 months since we last visited this thread...what are you collecting this year. Are you thinking about picking up anything new, are there any lines you have basically dropped? Where are those collecting dollars going this year? For me, it has been breaking down like this:
Star Wars -
*Basic 3 3/4" Line, Deluxe, Beasts/Vehicles, Playsets, etc. - Not a completist, just what I like, but it ends up being most of it.
*Unleashed - Just the ones I like, usually focused more on OT characters (although I picked up all 3 ROTS so far)
*Galactic Heroes - All of the OT sets, and I've picked up all of the ROTS sets so far as well.
*Vintage 3 3/4" Line - Not much devoted to this area this year with all of the ROTS spending, but I'd like to eventually get a complete, loose figure collection, and then move onto a few playsets or ships.
*Miscellaneous - Burger King Glasses and Toys, Target Glass Sets, Magazines, Posters, Ornaments, Other Misc Star Wars collectibles here and there.
*Marvel - Marvel Legends, Spider-Man Classics, Movie Figures. I think I'm almost done with ML, at least for the most part. Spidey Classics I basically pick up any new villains (and, if ever, supporting characters) from the line. I recently picked up 3 FF movie figures, and hope to get a couple more if/when I find them. I also collect Spidey movie figures, and might pick up X-Men movie figures from the next film if they look very good (skipped the other movies so far).
*Other Superheroes - Very limited, but I do have a few Superman and Batman figures. I recently picked up the "regular" Batman Begins Batman, and plan on getting a movie Supes as well when Superman Returns comes out. I'm a movie fan in general, so I kind of enjoy having a "movie representation" of my favorite heroes. Very limited here overall though, as I basically focus on Marvel when it comes to superheroes.
*Mostly the higher-end Star Wars stuff, basically. There are a couple of lines I'd like to get into, although somewhat limited likely due to price, but I'm still working on talking the Mrs. into the higher end stuff. The lines I am interested in the most are the Gentle Giant Busts, as well as the Master Replicas stuff (FX Sabers to start). I would really like to get into the movie prop stuff more, but it is a little pricey for me right now.
*Lord of the Rings - I got the figures I really wanted from the line, and I think I'm pretty much done with it. I would have liked to collect the line further, but didn't have the space (or the money, because of Star Wars). Good line overall though, and if it wasn't for all the Star Wars stuff, I'd probably would have/would get into it further.
Overall, I'm pretty much limiting myself to Star Wars stuff, with a sprinkling of Marvel stuff here and there. Those are the lines I enjoy the most, and have the closest connection to from my childhood as well. Every once in awhile there are single products from other lines (GI Joe, MOTU, LOTR, DC Direct, Muppets, Simpsons) that interest me as well, but many of those lines are now basically dead or I don't have the space/money for. So what are you collecting this year, Star Wars or otherwise?
