So, does anyone here buy collectables (as in posters, figures, art books, ect)?

I've always been interested, but for some reason always hold back (I've gotten a few apparel items, such as a few Mario shirts, a Mario ball cap, and Mario wallet, but that's it). I'd probably start out with a few Mario items, if I ever really got into collectables (you can find quite a bit of Mario items for under $20).

Also, does anyone know any good sites where you can import posters? It seems like the only Japanese posters I can find are anime related, and I'd like a wider selection of categories.

I collect books about games - art books, music scores and so on.

I also collect miniatures from my favourite games. I just ordered this one:

I have a few figures, but nothing impressive. Figure collecting is too expensive of a hobby for me to really get into it,

I don't necessarily make myself out to collect each thing,
but I do have an assortment of Nintendo posters, figurines, and other things.

I have quite a lot of Star Wars collectibles, which I accumulated over many years. Everything ranging from figurines, books, toys, artwork, PC games, posters, models etc. I haven't bought much SW stuff in recent years, as I've used my money for other things.

I've often looked at other collectible items, but the expense and the need for large amounts of space to store/display them puts me off these days.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

I used to be obsessed with these. They're called Blockheads, and you get them from those machines that you put a quarter in. My whole class from like 3rd to 5th grade was obsessed with them. Then one of my friends had the bright idea to order 250 of them online, and me and a bunch of other kids did too...

So, on average, how much does shipping cost when importing from Japan (to U.S.)?

I'm a total Thor fan and have quite the collection of Thor action figures, whilst my wife loves Iron Man and collects his figures. I've been a Marvel fan most of my life but my wife only got in to them after we watched the movies. Between us we have Thor and Iron Man Mark 1 Hot Toys, most of the Thor Legends figures, almost all of the Thor movie figures, every Thor and most Iron Man Marvel Universe figures plus loads of Iron Man 2 and Avengers bits. I did think about collect variants but I've decided that's probably going to far (If I haven't already!). I've got a couple of villains too (A few Loki's, a variant Absorbing Man, Frost Giant and the Marvel Legends BAF Galactus). With Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 out this year, we may need to expand the shelving :P
I also collect graphic novels too, I've almost finished reading through the Dan Jurgens Late 90's/Early 2000's run of Thor, which is pretty awesome and I managed to pick up the Walter Simonson Omnibus for £50 on Amazon!
