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.

Re: What do you collect?

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!

Sir Rhosis
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:

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

Re: What do you collect?

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...

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

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!
