I don't have that one.

If you'd like it, please PM me.  We can either come up with a trade, or I'm happy just to give it to you for the cost of shipping.

I like to collect all sorts of different things!

Since I come from two separate backgrounds (Animation and Computer Science), I kind of mish-mosh what I collect...

 

1. I have a camera collection, from vacuum tube cameras to medium format and 35mm cameras.  My oldest is from 1909 and still works!

Cameras
  More Cameras

 

2.  I collect a lot of vintage computers, from Apple II, Apple S/E, Amiga, Commodore, etc...

Vintage Macintosh Computers

 

3. I collect a ton of animated films on different mediums! I have old Disney films on super 8mm / 8mm, 16mm and 35mm, I also have a huge collection of a completely dead format called SelectaVision or CEDs.  Which is basically home video on records!  They predate VHS I believe. I have a ton of animated films, Disney films and rare finds in this collection

CEDs and Player
Winnie the Pooh on CED
Star Wars on CED
More CEDs
Even more CEDs
 
4. I restore and collect (liberally) old stereo amplifiers.  Since they're big, heavy and hard to place in the house, I only have a select few.  I usually restore and sell them afterwards

5. One thing that is odd that I like to collect are energy efficient computers and newer ways to use a computer.  The image below is an Intel Compute Stick.  It's a fully featured intel based computer, quadcore, 2GB of RAM and 32GB solid state that uses maybe about 2 watts of power and is slightly larger than a USB stick.  I also use Raspberry Pi a lot.  Sometimes I'm on this forum on a Raspberry Pi.
This is (seriously) a Desktop
 
6. *inhales* LASTLY, I collect animation cells from various shows.  I have some from He-Man, Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, among some Don Bluth and Disney cells, like Snow White, Little Nemo, All Dogs go to Heaven, Sword in the Stone, etc. (These I have no images of because they're in storage...)

Thanks RickR!
It's just a lot of crap I've collected over the years since I was 18. :)  It's fun to collect stuff, but I don't like hording.  If it's something I no longer use or want, I'll usually sell it or give it away to someone who would want it.

 

I keep telling my wife that someday we need to find a house with a basement so I can turn it into a retro romp room.  Shag carpets, old plaid couch, some lava lamps, wood paneling on just about everything, an old knob television; the works.  Alas, someday...

YES!  I have the same dream.  I'll pass on the old TV, but otherwise absolutely.
