Your favorite collectable?

LiquidChaos66LiquidChaos66 Posts: 3,767 ✭✭✭✭
I got accepted to Hogwarts! Ok... I didn't... BUT I do love the series (books and movies). My wife and I are finishing up the series on Blu-Ray and only have one movie left. This is where you all get to laugh. I ordered myself a wand. LMAO! Whenever I finish up a TV/Movie/Book/Video game series I always order some sort of knicknackery. I collect random crap like that. :) Whats your nerdy collectible that you are proud of?

Once it arrives in the mail... Mine is replica of Snape's wand. :)

    One sheets. AKA "movie posters," but not the crap ones you buy at the store in the mall. Double sided-sent to the theater posters.

    One of these days I'm going to professionally frame my LOTR and SW:I-III sets. I haven't even taken them out of their tubes for so long. Now I'm gonna have to check. My Field of Dreams got damaged a while ago. I have some other neat movie collectible stuff. Old film cans and reels. I have a nice set of hefty decorative reels that I want to cut down the middle and turn into handles on double doors into my home theater. One day. When I have all kinds of $ to blow on something like a private home theater. One day.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    I collect funny words, like "knickknackary."

    We have a collection of small stone Zuni hunting fetishes. I think we have 20 at least. The small sculptures were originaly used for the hunter to connect with the spirit of the animal being sought. Buffalos, badgers, turtles, eagles, wolfs, deer, mountian lions, elk, sheep and so on. Most of our fetishes are about two inches long and some have flint points attached. A traditional Zuni hunter would go to a spiritual leader and have the fetish" woken up" and then keep it in a clay pot with corn meal until it was taken on a hunt. If you can find good fetishes not made for the tourist trade they range in price from $250--and up.

    That's pretty neat! I love things like that!

    Magic cards do count... ONLY if you have a Black Lotus. ;)

    Haha I wish, I haven't had a holiday in way too long. Looking forward to 9 days in Italy this coming May: Venice, Florence, Pisa, and Rome. Not gonna be another stamp as I'm coming from Spain (and this is my 4th time to Rome), but excited for the trip.

    Oh yeah, and I just counted...actually, I was wrong - I have 22.
