What do you collect?
 
Lately I've been a little nostalgic for my collector days, so I thought this thread might be fun.

If you're a collector of fabulous things Trek...what do you collect? A little bit of everything, or is there something particular you love, like figures, or ships, or cards, or comics?

Scripts, though I've slowed on that in the last few years.

I started collecting ST books as a kid. The 60-cent prices are from 1970:

I also have tons of novels not pictured.

This thread is going to be bad for my wallet, I can already tell. I've seen something in almost every pic that I used to have, and may have to acquire again!

I've always wanted to collect scripts, but never did get started with it.

I also collect ST music on CD. Here are just some highlights from the recent "Star Trek Renaissance," plus the first TOS box set from 1992:

:techman: I love Trek music! I have many of the soundtracks on my PC. The Search For Spock and the 2009 reboot are my faves.

Used to have most of the Playmates Toys five inch Trek line! Opened them too! But,
when a collection becomes more of a burden or chore, time to thin the herd!

"That being said..."

For those interested, the here's the link for the entire Ready Room photo shoot! A few months behind, so there's a few things missing from what's there now.

LOVE the room...:drool:

I tried the link you provided, but it says this album is private.

LOVE the comics table, did you create that yourself?

Thank you! It's the culmination of collecting crap for decades!

The table I "decoupaged" myself. First attempt at that. I think I'd be better at it if I decide another attempt someday. For the larger pub table, I'd like to put various movie trading cards (old school Topps and the like) on it and seal it with a clear coat. That'll take some planning and testing before I try my hand at that. I'm not a handy person!

I'm not terribly handy either, but I love that table! In the room that would have to be my Trek room, which is now my art studio, I have a long countertop....I'd love to cover the countertop with something like that. The trading cards is a great idea!
