Playing and Collecting

Today the subject and how il will be handled will be fun and relax.

I got the idea when I thought about what I have in my office.

This room does not have a desk, or even a computer or anything to write on for that matter. Except when I'm live for the podcast...

I call it my office because "Man-Cave" doesn't work. My office is under the roof, so it would be a "Man-Attic" at best and that doesn't sound great, you have to admit.

What is there? Well, a lots of geek stuff. But full really full. So yes I have less than some but it's already pretty much.

We must admit that collecting is a very common activity among gamers. I am one of them and maybe you are too.

For my part my collection is quite beautiful. We're talking about 130 lead figures from Marvel and DC Comics. Link figures, Crash Bandicoot, a Pip-Boy and more.

There is also a Dragon Ball (with 4 stars, the real ones know), a Piccolo, Aquarius from Fairy Tail and others. Then there is a collection of Lego, around Harry Potter, Friends and Batman.

I am a big fan of manga and it was necessary that I have statues on the subject. Lego has been part of my life since I was little, like Friends Batman and then Harry Potter. So of course, when Lego and the rest cooperate, it makes sense that I buy. Lego has done a tremendous job to stay true to the works. The rendering is excellent, it must be admitted. My kids love me explaining everything that is built in front of them and I love telling them about it

In addition I still have eleven closed Lego boxes ... And it's not over, because I still have a good hundred manga, comics and books. Then in order not to stop me there, it would be silly, I have a collection of whiskey bottles, a dozen of on metal printed posters (from Displate). Final Fantasy is my favorite franchise, if you didn't know that then read my articles. It's not possible to miss that. And it is all the more visible. The rendering is great and the works are so well respected!

I'm not even talking about my watches for which I don't have room in my office ... Yes, the place where I store my collections doesn't have room, for one of my collections ... all of my sixteen watches. For which I have two boxes, one of which is connected to an electric plug so that my mechanical watches are constantly in motion and thus not stop. They can be watches of all kinds, that's the goal of this collection. I can have black leather, brown metal, gold whatever. Rather, it will be based on a fashion or a moment or a style that I like.

collection 07

That's a lot for one man and my wife isn't the one to advise against all of this. You could say that a good quarter or even a third of what I got was offered to me by her.

On the other hand, she is no better with her 300 books and over sixty Disney figurines, including one still in its original packaging! What a geek, seriously.

Ah yes, little icing on the cake. My socks. Yes, you read that right. Socks. Happy Socks got me hooked I must say. About twenty pairs. From Queen, Keith Haring, Barbecue, pink flamingos and other palm trees.

collection 04

In terms of games, it is not necessarily better. With my brother we bought a bundle of games and proudly took over my mother's games. Between Nintendo and Sega and Playstation we have a good average of forty games per console.

On PS3 and PS4 I have had countless games. For the Wii and the Switch too. The advantage of the Switch precisely lies in the size. Games are much easier to store. Didn't I mention the Wii U? Obviously, we don't talk about it too much. I proudly defended the console, it was hard to admit that the console didn’t do great. It must be said that there were still some games that were worth it like Mario Maker.

So much for me. I enjoyed sharing with you my proud and modest, or not, collections. Some pieces are already fifteen or more years old, not to mention games that can even be over thirty of course.

I hope you liked it and especially relieved yourself of having one or the other collection yourself. Do not hesitate to post us a photo of your collection! How? By commenting on our post about this article on Facebook for example! Proudly show off your collection! Whether it's a photo or a selfie! Go blow our mind!
