    GI Joe, Transformers, Robotech then back to Star Wars in 1987. (all my friends were dumping their collections)

    Transformers, then after a couple years, G.I. Joe because all my friends had them and I bowed to peer pressure. Then in 1987 I started a 7 year comic book kick and amassed a collection of over 20,000 comics. Then '95 rolled around and I started in with the Star Wars again and gradually added DVDs and Movie posters and now Transformers again.

    Motorcycle parts. Posters of girls. I can't remeber buy a childrens' toy for myself between the time I stopped buying the old Star Wars figures (around 1982) and started buying the new ones again (1997).

    Since I've started collecting SW again, I've also grabbed a few toys from some other lines (Simpsons, Matrix, Lord of the Rings).

    I can almost exactly re-quote you on this one, Rollo. "Then in 1985 I started a 6 year comic book kick and amassed a collection of over 2,000 comics." I kinda collected Transformers, too, but only for 3 years or so.

    Any pins, usually sports or USA related (Olympics, VFW [Veterans of Foreign Wars, which is an organization my grandparents were in], Pittsburgh stuff, Disney, comics, etc.).

    No pins of orange soda cans, though!

    For me it was Super Powers (got hooked after I found the ellusive Brainiac for a friend of mine, got tired of looking at it through the bubble and opened it, then had to buy another for him). I managed to find Plastic Man in the stores but never the one I wanted most, Cyborg. I still have the better part of my collection to this day (ditched the Kirby-esque types, Mantis, Darksied, etc. and the fabricated ones, Golden Pharoh, but kept most of the line). They are proudly displayed in front of my nigh-complete collection of Pepsi Super Series glasses (Series I). Just need Green Arrow and Green Lantern! (That collection started with just the Aquaman glass from the series, found in perfect condition in my grandmother's garage.)

    I also dumped far too much money into G.I. Joe and did not have the foresight to just keep it boxed up rather than ditching it a few years before the return of Star Wars to the store shelves. I also collected comics back when they were worth collecting (don't get me started), and to this day I still pick up one or two figures from all kinds of lines, but just the ones that I really love. And of course I am now hooked on The Simpsons, though like with Star Wars, I am not a completeist. Bubba Fatt just found me a Treehouse of Horror II set!
