Only my partner knows. I don't need to tell others about my collection, so I don't. So yes my collecting is kept on the down low.
I suspect there are many who don't share this info.

I don't keep it a secret. My wife knows (she doesn't like my stuff. Too much $$$ and space taken up she says). My friends, some of the people I work with and my parents and some relatives know. Out of all the people, the ones I wish didn't know would be my parents. They don't get it at all and pretty much think I’m an idiot for collecting them. My dad never played with me when I was a kid and he has no interest in toys or anything like them. I can’t imagine him ever playing as a child.
In the end I don't care who knows or what they think of me. It makes me happy and I love playing GI Joe with my son. He loves it and that’s all that matters. Most people have a hobby or collect something they like, it’s the same as collecting toys just under a different name. Like people who play with train sets, collect stamps, collect bird carvings, or what ever. It's all the same.

In my case everybody knows (girlfriend, family, girlfriend's familiy, friends and people at work) because I really don't have a reason to keep it as a secret. Collecting figures is my top hobbie (videogames are the second) and whoever doesn't accept me because of that is not worth my time. I even have all my albums posted in Facebook and I use my real name there.
We are collectors and not murderers for God's sake! There is nothing to be ashamed of.

One foot outta the closet...My Old "Grew Up with" friends and family know, and they don't give a crap(Even call me when they see something, they think I'll like while shopping with their kids)My work friends and assorted Social Group type friends have no idea. I just don't feel the need to tell them, as it's no ones business what Hobbies/Recreational stuff I'm into. People always label each other...there's just a primal thing in all of us...and I figure why bother with getting another one, life's too short to explain it to each and every other person I meet...Hell, I don't wanna know about some guys Barry Manilow Collection, or some guys Micheal Jordan Shoe Collection since the first pair was released. Just My own thing, other more interesting things to know about Me/other people, than this/their quirky thing.

Everyone in my family knows, but my wife hates it (and everything else I have ever "wasted" my money on. I really don't care.
