I reckon if you re-titled the post as something like "non-arcade collections" it might get a bit more traction.

One of my brothers has just about everything for everything, it's ridiculous. Except for the Sega Saturn, that is. I have a good few of them, although it'd be nice to get three dirty dwarves (and the game would be good too).

Other weird things I do look out for are original film posters. Been trying to get an escape from New York one for bloody ages with no joy.

That's a great collection of Switch games. Switch games always seem to be more expensive compared to PS4/Xbox

I've only got a few, but here's the last one I got a few months ago, and funnily enough it arrived the day I got an original novelisation of escape from New York which I mentioned above (bargain at a fiver, also collect odd books).

Posters are a little world of their own, bootlegs and all :p



In the 1 in a billion chance anyone has these posters, let me know..fright night, season of the witch, Aliens, any hammer horror :)

That's an awesome poster of an awesome movie.

I must admit, I have fallen into a hole of collecting ex-rental VHS and pre-cert VHS as of late. Actually been going crazy with it.

Yeah great film! I'm not a huge fan of Kurt Russell but he just so happens to be in a bunch of my favourite films.

A brothers friend is really big into vhs tapes, has walls of them. There's something really neat about the ads beforehand and bit of graininess and all that, plus there's loads of films that never made it to dvd. Remember when you'd get a slap on the head for not rewinding rentals!

I collect film posters too although the landscape version “quads” rather than portrait “one sheets”
Currently at somewhere between 4000 & 5000 and counting. Fortunately whilst they take up a lot of space the space they do take up is minuscule compared to the arcade hobby. Last time I catalogued them I worked out that put end to end you’d have to walk just over two miles to look at them all that’s a lot of wall space required.
Whilst some film posters are iconic it doesn’t always take that a good film has a good poster alas and flip side you can get a great poster for a bad movie still all have their merits to me

Off the top of my head favourites to look at (displayed correctly in back lit frame of course) would be in no particular order
Any classic Disney cartoon, Indians Jones, any Star Wars, back to the future, Spider-Man (original tobey McGuire twin towers version), superman, lost in space, blast from the past, matinee, ghostbusters even the original scream was a good composition. Honourable mention to PIXELS given the forum I’m posting on.
To get all arty about it some are good for impact, some for the composition and some just to get in the right mood for a movie night I like a James Bond film as much as the next guy but generally I find the posters don’t try to hard but putting the poster up before planning to watch the film gets that vibe going like a trip to the cinema lol
Still on the lookout for an original UK Tron quad be nice to have in the games room and a lot cheaper than a Tron cabinet probably settle for a repro as chance of finding an original at a price I’m willing to play is unlikely

I was around 11 when I first watched Big trouble in little China. I remember thinking it was the best film I'd ever seen, still one of my favourites.

Love that poster, I've got a reproduction one.

I'm back into console collecting at the moment. I tend to dip in and out sometimes with gaps of 5 or 10 years in between. I mainly collect Japanese stuff, Sega, Nintendo, NEC (can't afford Neo Geo.)

My favourite is the PC Engine. I've got 7 different PC Engine consoles, a couple of duplicates and over 100 games for it some of which I've owned since the early 90s.

It's a breath of fresh air collecting for consoles again as you can still find what you want for reasonable prices unlike arcade stuff.

Between 4 and 5 bloody thousand! Unreal.

Man, throw me a the escape from liberty head version of efny, aliens with newt and riply, and season of the witch, you won't even know they're gone!

Like I said I only have a few, went with the one sheets simply for being a bit smaller than the quads. Have the idea of setting up a bit of a cinema projector room (think cheap!) with the posters on display.

Picked up an LED projector last year and very pleased with it. Below was me testing it out, cabinet for scale :p

I've never really properly collected anything other than arcade games. I do like games consoles, but I think I'd be happy with multicarts, a pile of CDRs or ISOs on USB sticks than a fortune in original legit media.

Yep, when you're used to seeing the prices of arcade stuff, all of a sudden everything else is like buttons!
