    OK so one of my guilty pleasures is the world of Sci-fi, as many know I'm a huge movie fan but even worse I am also an avid collector of action figures.

    Hit the NEC toyshow today and socred me another NECA Batman 1/4 Scale for the collection. Sad? Yeah.... but so what? :))

    And why the hell not. I don't collect anything well I suppose you could say mobile phones! That's my pleasure. Never get to the end of a contract with a phone always end up selling mine for the next best thing. Though today I dropped my phone and smashed the screen!:(

    I will just say however Roland that every single piece in my collection rises faster in value 10 x more than if I put the equivalent money in the bank.

    I have my original snes still lol
    I wouldn't say collect but i buy old analogue studio equipment and sell it on for a good profit
    I still can't bring myself to part with my roland tb303 or my 808 drum synth to time it with
    But i go to a lot of boot sales etc and know what i am looking for as i have always been into the music scene since these items were new
    I have seen a 303 for sale for 200 quid and missed out on it and then seen them go on ebay for £1800
    My mate found a nice old analogue synth for 20 notes at a boot sale and sold it on for £700

    Well the missus did better than me today, she scored 4 complete mint MegaZords for her collection for £110. Not one of them goes for less than £80 on eBay.
