Hmm.. I'm ecclectic.
Medieval weapons and armor. I have at least 26 swords. I have shields, helmets, a few axes, flails, maces, breast plates.. etc. etc. it's an extensive collection that spreads throughout the house. Other than G.I. Joes, this is my main collecting habit.
I also collect movies.. have a ton of them. about 1500 dvd's.
As well as Transfomers Alternators/Binaltech.. Just missing the last 3 that were released in the states and a few over seas ones.
RPG's.. the pen and paper kind. I managed a few game stores back in my youth, so I have a lot of the stuff and occassionally get some friends together to play.
Also play Warhammer 40K.. so I have alot of money invested in that. Several armies so that others can come over and play that don't have one of their own.
Vintage bartending shakers and shotglasses, after leaving the game store industry.. I pursued a career in bartending that lasted 7 years. So I have a collection of old liquer bottles, shakers, shot glasses.. etc. etc.
Books.. used to have time to read.. now, I get to read every once in again.. bad thing is that I keep buying books to read and I still haven't finished some of the other ones I have already had.
My friends are right, I do have too many collections.. ...nah. no such thing as too many...right?

I've been a Transformer collector for the past few years, but don't see myself buying a lot of stuff in the future. I was mainly into the Alternators so now that they're gone I just get Masterpieces and a few select figures (mostly G1) here & there.
I have a large LEGO collection including many of the Star Wars sets released over the years. My LEGOs are also the only toys from my childhood that I never sold so I still have every set I had from that time of my life and have continued to add to my collection over time.
I like rhinos, so I have a small collection of rhino toys, statues, and small stone sculptures.
I love music, especially live, so I have many tickets from concerts I've been to over the years. 40 of those are for Pearl Jam concerts, or shows that they were at such as Lollapalooza earlier this year.
Finally, my largest collection is my record library which I started in the mid 90s. I now have over 550 albums (vinyl LPs) & 45s in my collection. Many of these were released in the past decade, much to the surprise of some who thought records were no longer being made. Again a big portion of my record collection is Pearl Jam: at least 2 copies of every album from them, most singles, and every 10 Club single (the fan club sends members a Christmas/Holiday single on vinyl every year).

I gave up on GI Joe back in 87-88. I only started collecting the Joe stuff since fall, when I discovered the 25th line. The only other thing I collect is skateboard decks.

I have just started with the 25th Anniversary Joes. I have a small collection of Star Wars (mostly different variations of Luke Skywalker). My original Joes, baseball cards, comic books, and original Star Wars are in my parents house until my wife and I can get one. Coaching youth (and/or high school) football is a big passion of mine so I like to collect football related autographs...I have NY Mets memoribilia to display that is put away and several Jets autographs to display - just no place to display it!
Smokehouse, nice set up!

Joes are my main focus lately followed by sports cards and a few Star Wars if they are cool and different.

Way too freaking much. I collect....Joes, TFs, MASK, vintage Detroit iron (GM only, right now), video games, bills, bills, bills, and my hair as it falls out. (Don't really keep it, but you get the point.) Used to do Marvel Legends, MOTU (still need the General from the new line), movie figs, lego, model cars, die cast cars, hotwheels, gundam, Justice League, and I'm sure there's more.
As for the vintage iron, we own 4 pre 1972 GM vehicles. I've not had the time or money to work on them in a while, so they are more collect than anything right now.
