I don't know if there's a thread for this or not but I'm wondering if there's anyone else who's big into toy collecting as a hobby. I used to fancy myself a big time 1/6 (GI Joe size) figure collector until the market got too expensive. I have a pretty extensive collection of GI Joe size figures (although now they're all sitting in boxes) from various companies like Sideshow, Hasbro, Dragon etc. I've also got a pretty decent collection of those fancy MLP "fan series" sculptures like Discord and Chrysalis (as well as a few decent plushies). Anyone else here a toy collector?
So, something that may not be thought of often nowadays, are things that we as a player collect during our journey through a particular game. Now, when you hear collectible, you usually think hidden things that are difficult to find and are a prime reason for the birth of walkthroughs. However, for this, I am counting ALL things that we nab in games. Whether it be the collectibles I just mentioned, the coins in Mario, the Materia in FF7, the gems in Aladdin, this could be anything like that. So with that established, what are some of YOUR favorite things to get in video games? Me personally, one of my favorite has always been the bananas from Donkey Kong country. Perhaps it is just me being a primate but there was always something deeply satisfying to me about collecting those things and all they did was give you free lives. No points, no high scores, just lives. Yet it still makes me want to grab them when playing through that marvelous game. What about you, dear reader?
