    That's easy, Alien(s).

    I do have items from a few other select movies, but the bulk of my collection focuses on Alien and Aliens.

    I don't focus too heavily on any one movie since I'm not all THAT interested in most of the prop categories (TV sets, costumes, set pieces, etc.). I'm mainly a weapons freak and if I do collect any other prop categories, it will be a little bit from a lot of films rather than a lot of stuff from one film.

    Today it is Buffy and Ultraviolet. I think I will stay on these two for a while. I am trying to decrease my collections.

    I guess so since my whole world revolves around Star Wars: A New Hope. However, I do have some prequel stuff in my collection and am getting more into Aliens lately....but my focus remains SW ANH....

    Firefly & Serenity stuff with a little bit of Blade Runner and Star Wars thrown in for good measure. But it's all about the Verse for me

    my focus is star wars a new hope...

    but basically anything SW. :love

    the only props that excite me in other movies is stuff that was from SW...

    to be honest (no offense) but i dont get the people who collect buffy stuff... etc...

    but maybe thats because im a musician, and if i ever have extra cash it goes into that all expensive world.

    and in my old corvette... or my damned 4runner that costs more than it should to drive... :p

    but yeah, anything ANH accurate, its like it keeps me from sleeping at night some of the screen accurate stuff that comes through here.

    precious... must have the precious...


    i love LOTR batman serenity etc. and have always been interested in special FX and horor makeup...

    but i never see anything in a show or movie that makes me feel like i must hold it in my hand... then must posess it.

    id say if i were loaded though...

    it would be rediculous the things id collect.

    so i deffinately have alot of respect for all the RPFers (especially those of you with REDICULOUSLY HUGE collections) but i just dont get the fever if it isnt SW related... if its ANH... hold me back.

    All Star Wars (even mixture of PT & OT) with a tiny bit of Batman & X-Men thrown in.

    I'm a Star Wars guy, essentially any Star Wars (although, if pushed to the wall, I'd pick the OT by far). Don't care about Trek, Blade Runner, BSG, Buffy (yuck.), etc., etc., etc. I am Jedi.

    Do you want a flame war? Ok, You'll have a flame war... :angry
    The only interesting props in SW are the lightsabers, and the blasters are only a kitbash of real guns with some garbage on it.

    (J/K, but I think I'm officially dead. LOL :D )

    No, seriously I'm not into SW, I'm just a low-level fan... I prefer another Lucas film: Indiana Jones.
    To be honest I have many interests, but I can sum them in this list: Indiana Jones, The Mummy, LOST, Smallville (and many, many more... Basically I don't focus. OMG I should delete this post. :eek ) LOL :lol

    No wars going to start here. Different things are what make this hobby great. I have a few things from Terminator, Predator, and Aliens. Have a lot of Spider-man and comics in general. I too have my share of Star Wars. Mostly figures and toys of the Sith Lords but I do have a nice V2 and the FX sabers. I just have a lot of the stuff still boxed up in the spare bedroom. I have been looking at trying to decide what I want to keep and what I should sell to others who will do more with it than let it sit in boxes in a spare room. Now the Buffy thing. I just really liked the way Joss crafted the stories, tend to favor the 4 first seasons before it appeared that Joss was spread too thin. I was once like "WTF you watch Buffy?" Then during Christmas break I watched a marathon of Season 2 and was hooked. Can't explain it. Others collect BTTF, Planet of the Apes, Blade Runner, and ect. I guess I can relate to the stories in Buffy as I was in school at the same time, minus the vampires/zombies/demons/invisible girl/talking dummies/mutated swim team/Inca mummy/and so on. I think Joss really nailed a lot of the real life things that go on daily. Enough of my nerd rant lets hear some more of what is the focus of everyone's collection.

    Now that I think of it, I'm mostly a SW freak :) .

    1. LIGHTSABERS. I'm hooked and need serious rehab :D :p .
    2. Blasters. Not hooked, but I have had my share of failed projects.
    3. Anything else. Not really interested, but an all OT Vader suit display (like the ones in another thread here) would be sweet.

    After that I'm a BIG LOTR fan, with swords being my addiction (Anything lightsabers or swords within 50 ft. of me and I'm all over it like like a pack of starving rats on a crumb of cheese :lol .)

    It's nice to see the variety of fan interests this board has to offer :) .

    ... :lol

    BAH WAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....

    ha HEE who... wow. :angel


    i think my thing with buffy, is that... sarah michelle geller... aint no christy swanson. :$

    that and being forced to watch even a minute of the musical by a friend of an Ex-girlfriend.

    that is honestly the worst thing that has ever been filmed.

    it makes the star wars holliday special... look like... star wars. :p

    My focus is the Star Wars films, prequel and original trilogy. I've been soooo tempted to get some Indiana Jone goodies and Blade Runner props, but I keep fighting the urge. A Wested sure would make for a great winter coat. :)

    Well, I have all the Buffy DVD's so I think you're right about the Joss Whedon "talent" for the "real-life" thing (look at Firefly...)
    BTW I don't want to start a flame war, I was just kidding :D
    And You're right also on the "different things makes this hobby great", for example I discovered Firefly only because I've found a thread about Mal's pistol (if I remember well, was here on RPF, because in Italy Firefly isn't arrived yet, probably because the serie was interrupted in the US).
    But there are so many cool props in the entertainment industry that I fall in love with every new cool prop... For this reason I can't really focus, but at the top of my list I have the "adventure/action-movie/serie" props. ;)
