i havent even got a clue whats in my collection cos its that long since i looked :)

i dont even come close to 500 items, that i KNOW....but then i dont really care. ppl who have masses of stuff, i admire and ppl who have the real rare items, i am envious of, but in the end, its MY collection and i like it and thats what its all about in the end. if others have tons more than me, well so what? one day i will be lucky to get items i am looking for, but a true collection is something that you are very passionate about for YOU....to talk about with other collectors, maybe trade and discuss, but hardly to wave about in front of other peoples faces and go nyah nyah....whats the point of that? if i had 2000 items, i would sell 1500, cos there are just too many to fit in my house :D

you should appreciate what you have. be happy that you have it and enjoy what you are a part of.

but there we go :)

its funny how you look at it tho, cos to me, my mint SW copy of Q1 will always mean more to me than ST1 would :) it was the first mod i ever played in school and will always give me the best buzz no matter what, when talking about a collection.

so in the end....i cant vote either :D

I buy alot of stuff with the intention of selling it later and then I never seem to get around to list it.  It a killer on the credit card fees :(
