Thought there would be more collectors out there!

Halo figures and Megabloks Halo.
Gears of War figures.
Various Play Arts Kai, Hitman, Tomb Raider, Halo, Street Fighter
All the Mass Effect Figures
I have a Premium figure of Commander Shepard from Mass Effect by Triple A.

I also subscribed to Loot Box for a year so have a load of random stuff I kept, and gifted the stuff I didn't.

I can't really speak for other people, but I suspect that the association between this site and BGG/RPGG means that there's a decent overlap between people who play those games as well as video game. And I know that for me, those other kinds of games scratch any itch I have for material items connected to playing games. For me at least, if I get something game related I want to actually be able to play a game with it rather than just look at it and think of another game.

I have a Kirby plushie, a Kirby magnet, and an Ice Climbers amiibo. I plan to get amiibo of Kirby, Luigi, Jigglypuff, Daisy and Duck Hunt. I like how Duck Hunt looks, I'm just not good with them.

I've also purchased a Starman and green turtle shell plushies (with sound. But you can unzip it, and either flip the switch off or remove the battery to silence it) as a gift for kids.

I still have a few vg fridge magnets b/c, they too are useful.

Nope. However, I do tend to buy art books or sometimes novelizations of games. For some reason I don't think of those as merchandise per se... The art books I refer to for design inspiration and the novelizations are there so I can go back and relive a game in my 80's when it might be hard to go back and play Myst, or some such.

I just collect them because I really enjoyed the game/franchise. I always trade in my physical games to put towards new ones, so when I look at my collectibles I'm reminded of what a great game it was.
