What is up Axe Head Army!!!

Obviously we all collect and enjoy games since we are all members of this great community, but I was thinking...what other gaming related items do you guys collect? Art books, figures, statues, posters, etc. Those are some of the things I personally collect. What do you guys collect?

I collect all MGS material I can find.
I started collecting the games from NES to present generation. But lately I started to collect MGS figures, magazines, posters etc.
Not sure why I'm doing it. I send everything to my moms place since I live abroad... :S

Very nice collection of books and statues/figures there. I try to collect art books as well, especially in regards to the JRPGs that I play. Statues I have a few, The Alduin one from the Skyrim Collectors edition being my pride and joy x) (but that's also because I collect dragon statues of all kinds).
I've also found myself collecting various gaming posters. Most of which I have gotten through EB games. These include GTAV, Batman Arkham City, Final Fantasy XIII, and (the one I Cherish the most) The Legend of Zelda: OOT 3D. I also have one for Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland (picture below)

@Rune Fredriksson: Dude there is SO MUCH Metal Gear stuff out there that its overwhelming! It sucks though that you live abroad and can't display it :(

@LordX: Thanks bro! The Ocarina of Time poster is pretty badass!!! I like the design of the FFXIII one. I was gunna put up some pictures of posters I currently have up but didn't want to over do it on the post. I have a couple framed ones up in my room and a bunch of unframed ones in my closet.

It's just books for me. I love me a good story that expands on a universe I like.

@Israel Pacheco thats some nice artbooks you have there. What's that "Uncharted: Drake's Journal"? I've never seen it before :O

Comment by Fredrik Pedersen on February 7, 2013 at 5:01am

I'd love to have Uncharted Drake's Journal. Can you take some snaps from within the book?

Comment by Neotericity on February 7, 2013 at 6:19am

I can't afford to collect anything other than books (not game-related), but would love to see pics of other's collections, because these are awesome!

Comment by Israel Pacheco on February 7, 2013 at 8:40am

@Docwoor: That's interesting. Now that I think about it, I've never read any gaming books where they expanded the universe. I should check one of those. Any recommendations? Uncharted Drake's Journal is a behind the scenes book on Uncharted 3 written by Nolan North, the voice actor who plays Drake. The version I have is also actually signed by Nolan North.

@Fredrik Pedersen: I'll take some pics of it later on tonight and post them in the blog :)

@Neotricity: Thanks man! Yeah hopefully we see other members share any collections they have :)

Comment by Fredrik Pedersen on February 7, 2013 at 8:56am

I think all the versions are signed by Nolan North, I read there are only 500 of them

Comment by Fredrik Pedersen on February 7, 2013 at 8:57am

Btw, I'm surprised not to see the Journey art book in that stack

Comment by Docwoor on February 7, 2013 at 8:59am

The mass effect books are nice (the ones written by Drew Karpyshin) There are a few warcraft books that are nice. There are a lot of very good starwars books, i wish the games would expand on that side of the canon a bit more. Then there is an eve book, that didnt really do it for me. And then there is D&D, lots of books there too.

I know StarWars and D&D aren't really books about gaming universes, but there are so many games set in these universes that for me the line where gaming ends and movies/geekdom starts blurs a lot. 

Congrats on the signed uncharted book, a signature (read, red lipstick:) from Emily Rose and/or Claudia Black would be even more epic:)

TWIG: Don't Starve, The Wolf Among Us, Broken Sword 5, Ether One (Finished!)

So, something interesting happened as I once again played the crap out of Don't Starve this week: I lost a little steam. It seems like I know the tricks now, more or less, to surviving past winter and staving off insanity. I have had several very successful (70+days) runs this past week,…
