Nice, an MLP fan on the forum! And Avatar. Intriguing. I personally am more of a classic Ponies guy, and my Avatar fandom tends to swing towards the movie.

Ah, Game of Thrones. I dig watching the show, I'm passing on the books for now. What kinds of Prop replicas do you have? I have a few, I love them.

I also am Heavy into those, lol. I just forgot them from my list!

Hmm... my list is kind of in a state of flux right now.

Heavy:

Star Trek - Without a doubt, my biggest geek emphasis. Not a fan of the reboot. Own DVD's, toys, costumes, been to Trek conventions, have been involved in PBEM's where I advanced from Ensign to Captain of my own ship.
Quantum Leap - My favorite TV show of all time. The only reason that Star Trek is a bigger geek emphasis is because there is more opportunity there.
Comics (Emphasis in DC and Marvel) - Love me some capes.
Firestorm - My favorite hero. The old version. Hate the new 52 concept. I believe I own one of every Firestorm toy ever produced.
Action Figures (Emphasis in Green Lantern and Large) - Pretty big collection. GL is great to collect, because of the diversity (Batman lines tend to put him in various costumes to fill out the collection - GL doesn't need that). The "Large" emphasis quite literally speaks of big and weighty figures. I love heavy chunks of plastic like the Marvel Select Juggernaut and Hulks, or the 18" Spider-Man with 67 points of articulation, or even the "My Size" 30" figures of Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man that were released with the films over the last decade.
Batman: Black & White Statues - Only the Batmen, and only one per artist. So many... kinda hoping this line slows down soon.
Fedoras - Obsessed with these hats. Have been since I was about 10. Front pinch, center crease, snap brim.
Detective Novels (Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Spenser, etc.) - I'm a sucker for a series.
Doctor Who (Working my way through every available episode from the beginning) - Planning to eventually blog about this.

Lesser:

Costuming - I usually do one or two big costumes a year. If I had the time, finances, and skill, I'd do more.
Customizing - Action figures. Mostly repainting, but wanting to develop more skills.
Japanese Monster Movies (Emphasis in Gamera) - They fill me with delight.
Transformers (Emphasis on Generation 1) - Kind of obsessed with Gen 1 Optimus Prime.
Robotech (Yes, the butchered US version of the Macross Saga) - Love this. I own about six Jetfire Transformers that I hope to one day customize into a Skull Squadron.
Mortal Kombat - Up until the most recent release, I owned every one of these games (including the terrible side-scrolling Sub-Zero game), sometimes buying the platform JUST to get these games.
Animation (Emphasis in traditional 2D animation) - Not a big fan of CGI.


I think that seems reasonably accurate for the moment.

I'd answer this now, but I suspect my list will be WILDLY different in a couple weeks...

I have 4 swords...like I said I'm really into fantasy novels:
Sting (from Lord of the Rings)
Zar'roc (from the Eragon series)
Longclaw (John Snow's sword from Game of Thrones)

I was given the Lord of the Rings Elven Leaf Brooch for my Birthday a few years ago.

I have that display with all the different colored lantern rings that DC Direct did.

Harry Potter's wand (should've added Harry Potter to my list!!!)

Harry Potter Ravenclaw Scarf

Flashpoint: Wayne Casino Chip Set

Luke Skywalker FX Lightsaber

Legion of Super-Heroes Ring (The one that came with the Mattel 12 pack)

I've preordered:
The Back to the Future Hoverboard
Iron-Man's Avengers Power Band
War's Sword from the game Darksiders


Still working on getting some other stuff but most of these items come at a price so I have to save up some cash or end up passing on them.

Billy - Nice list. I like the Fedora addition. And I'll remind everyone else you can update your lists and include other stuff you are super-into.

Dan - What's happening in a couple of weeks?

Rodge - Nice list! I've always wanted Sting, the light up FX version. It's awesome looking. I've got a few lightsabers from the fx line too, love them. I was able to stop myself with wand collecting with the Elder Wand, the most important one Wink

I have a bunch of other props too, but my favorites are my Mobile Emitter from Voyager and my nearly complete Zat gun from Stargate (still working on it). And I have the bases to make all the Sliders timers, but my brother has to do the electronics for them to make them countdown.
