I don't really go about collecting things, but I've got some dead cool band shirts from tours past.


This one is pretty much the coolest thing ever. In case you're not big on your Mastodon, it's from the Crack The Skye tour- That is Rasputin firing lasers from his fucking eyes. Yeah. I love it (quite literally) to bits, I used to wear the hell out of it so it's showing its age a little- it used to be a dark grey/blue, but it's bleached a bit now so it's kinda bluey/greeney/grey. I'll be gutted when it's unwearable, although they always come out with some cool designs so I'll have to find a worthy replacement.

(My coolest possessions are undoubtedly my basses, but I thought this was more in the spirit of the thread)

Heh, I've got one of those shirts, and it is awesome, but I don't think it was from the Crack The Sky tour (which ran from 5th June-9th August 2009, which I know because the tour shirt has the dates on it). Rather it was from their 2010 tour, because that's when I saw it for sale and bought it. and don't recall seeing it before that gig. But really that's somewhat besides the point, because mastodon are awesome (and are responsible for my username).

I think the official CtS tour shirt is different (as far as I remember it looked like the album cover with some funky glow in the dark bits), but that's the only time I've seen Mastodon on tour. If it's from the 2010 then I have no idea what kind of witchcraft happened. And indeed, Mastodon are awesome.

Indeed that the tour shirt is the one with the album cover on it. I guess it's possible that they hadn't got the stock of that shirt the first time I saw them on that tour (Sheffield, first tour date), and then they'd run out of stock by the second time I saw them (Sonisphere, second to last tour date). That was a good year for gigs...

I can't find a picture of it online, but I do own a helmet used by the RCAF to fly F/A-18 Hornets from the 80's. Nothing digital about it, unlike the newer versions.

A decorative japanese katana, supposed to be authentic but it does not matter to me

Either that or the fish ice pop molds to make some nice looking pops

Hero of Lime:
Definitely my grandfather's sword collection. Over 30 different swords ranging from broad swords, rapiers, katanas fencing foils, and a bunch of others. Plus the two Master Sword replicas I've gotten myself. ;)

Is it possible to get some picutres?

Because that sounds so awesome! Especially the master swords, are they in your opinion better than the master sword the "Man At Arms" guy made?
If you don't know what that is, Youtube "Man At Arms, Master Sword" = awesome :D

I don't know what the coolest thing I own is :/
I don't collect stuff or get over rare items almost at all...
Soooo, maybe my ticket collection from all the Liverpool games I've been to?
Or my Warhammer 40k Ork (small) army... other than that I don't really know.

I do have shirts from bands like KISS and Scorpions that are older than me, which I've got from my dad, and are still in very good shape :)

My PS3, PS2, PS3 and PS2 games, and computer, are the coolest things I own.

I wish my Master Swords were as good as the Man at arms one, they are cool, but nothing amazing.

It would take some work since I would have to scour the messy garage to find them, but I would like to round them all up and take some pictures. I'm trying to think how I would do that. XD

username sucks:
I have two hidden swords, one in an umbrella and one in a cane, both of which are made of brass and wood. I have no idea where they are from, but they are probably just cheap remakes (I don't want to feel bad for breaking one of them). They are still cool, nonetheless.

I hope you don't live in California or Massachusetts. I was locked up on a felony charge for having a sword cane.

Aramis Night:
Snip

Oh. I do live there. I guess it's kind of fortunate that I broke the sword cane, then. A felony charge sounds pretty unpleasant. I'll assume that an umbrella sword is also illegal, so thanks for saving me from being arrested.

Probably my coyote skull. His name is Yorkie:

I also have a custom-made pink fetus plushie, and a Mister Spooky squeaky toy (from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac), but I don't have any pictures of them.

Oh, and I have the bat in my avatar on a big, full-colour poster (it's my own art). I should probably display that thing someplace more prominent than where I have it now.

A fedora that was complimented by JesuOtaku herself. Granted, I think she was being sarcastic, but still.

Probably my gremlin in a clear glass jug of water, as oddities go.

From a general perspective, my entire action figure collection.

I also have an authentic Salzburg beer stein.

And a framed "The Producers" Playbill signed by Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick.

California weapon laws are pretty retarded. I would have been in less trouble had i been carrying a loaded gun. They treat blades as though they are more dangerous than guns here. The umbrella would be equally illegal here. They tried to give me a year. I plea bargained it down to 1 month in custody, 2 years probation, a $250 fine, and of course the "destruction" of the offending weapon. Plus now i get to tell potential employers about how I'm a hardened criminal.

Hmmmm, apparently i own nothing that's only purpose is to be admired.

But that being said it would either be my handmande Japanese gyuto knife (for cooking yo), or my Amazon kindle (1000+ books on a device that's smaller and lighter than a normal book *blows my mind yo*)

I own most of the Rocklord figures and I own a pretty large collection of Starwars figures from the original trilogy.

I have a White Ensign (the Royal Navy's flag) that flew on HMS Onslaught during the second world war. The Destroyer was my Grandfathers ship and he sailed on the Northern Conveys to Russia and back. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_convoys_of_World_War_II

The other cool thing that I own is a flight yoke from a Nimrod MR2 complete with big red button for dropping nuclear depth charges.

Holographic, authentic Mew-Pokémon card. NOT the hieroglyph-like one you got from watching the movie, but the one that was made with the original batch of Pokémon,

My computer. It's cool because it glows blue. From the only side that's solid, it kind of looks like the monolith from 2001 A Space Odyssey

I own the first edition of the awesome Graphic novel/Encyclopedia "LMS: Killbook of a BountyHunter"

Becuase there were only few copies of this book and most of them aren't get a change to get published normally, now it cost over 500 dollars to get it!!! Lucky me.

I am very glad to have it because I will be honest here, it is much better than the new edition [which I also own :)]

I have a picture of Hideo Kojima.

SIGNED BY HIDEO KOJIMA.

An Octus medal. Oh yeah. The one from GOW3 Epic edition, I just find it so cool, haha.

For Christmas I bought myself a Chewbacca winter coat and it's reversable as a Han Solo coat.

It's the coolest, most geeky thing I own and am DAMN PROUD of wearing it! I either get a disgusted smile from people who don't know the reference (it's hideous in a lovable way) or a genuine smile from a fellow geek.

Damn I love my coat!

I'm torn between my Puella Magi soul gem necklace, Puella Magi grief seed keyring or Mr Flibble hand puppet.

My Puella Magi stuff isn't actually rare or anything, I just really like the design.
And it feels pretty cool to run around and pretend I'm a Puella Magi myself.

That being said, I also adore my plushies - Kyubey and Monokuma. <3

The coolest thing I own? Or the coolest thing I think I own? :P

I...I think I own the Statue of David but I'm not sure... Wait! Is that cooler than the Mona Lisa??

Haha, honestly I'm not too sure which thing I own is the coolest. Possibly a photograph of me holding a baby panda?

I know the coolest things I DO own...

I love a bit of traditional and classic stylings, and my room and attire reflects this... Amongst things I have a tailored 3 peice navy blue suit and bowler hat, and a blue velvet jacket and bowtie... I also have a bar globe in my room, which I love to death! I have a tweed weekend bag too, which I really like!

I don't know really... A lot of the things I own I think are awesome, but most arn't particularily rare or anything like that. I hate anything signed... If I wanted an object scribbled on I would do it myself, and it would only serve as a constant reminder that it was once touched by someone probably greater than myself... which would not play well to my self-esteem. :P

Wow... this is a pretty cool haul! As my job doesn't involve going anywhere near actual equipment I haven't managed to grap any cool gizzits within the military yet... I once 'hijacked' an advertisement banner for the new Elizabeth Class aircraft carrier, but I re-established it within the crew bar at work... I have never been back to that particular base, so don't know if it is still there! :S

The ensign though... that is incredible! Will you hand it down as a heirloom, or will you eventually donate it to a museum? Do you have it on display with his medals?

I don't buy anything for it's 'cool' factor. As such, the only things that could fall under this category for me are magic cards as I've been collecting since revised. Classic cards of note:
- Complete playset of all Dual Lands including a Mint Unlimited Underground Sea
- Playset of Gaea's Cradle, Force of Will
- Foil Promo Swords to Plowshares
My personal favorite though....

Card Text: Players must leave game in progress as it is and use the cards left in their libraries as decks with which to play a subgame of Magic. When subgame is over, players shuffle these cards, return them to libraries, and resume game in progress, with any loser of subgame halving his or her remaining life points, rounding down. Effects that prevent damage may not be used to counter this loss of life. The subgame has no ante; using less than forty cards may be necessary.

Oracle Text: Players play a MAGIC subgame, using their libraries as their decks. Each player who doesn't win the subgame loses half his or her life, rounded up.

This card is just absurd and has led to many a fun reaction when played against people who don't know about it's existence. Sadly I only own 1. Before it got banned I always wanted to build a deck with 4 of these, regrowth effects and tons of exile cards like swords to plowshares. It would be Green/White/Black (for tutors). These cards aren't shuffled back in subgames so the idea is that whittle your opponents library over multiple sub-sub-sub games. It's the kind of deck I'd want to build and play once or twice a year at best for a laugh.

In reality I ran it in my weenie white deck for quite awhile. Turn 1 Savannah Lions, Turn 2 Shahrazad.
Win the subgame and attack for 2 bringing your opponent down to 8 life! Good times!

Well I have an autograph and picture with the voice actor of Woods from Black Ops...He was a cool guy to meet and stuff. I also have a signed picture from Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flannery. Also a signed convention badge from Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria.

I own nothing cool LAWL.

I am addicted to Tweed. I have 5 tweed jackets, 2 tweed suits, 2 tweed coats, 2 Norfolk tweed jackets(a ploy to avoid her in doors ban on more tweed, didn't go down well) 4 tweed caps 2 tweed grouse hats and 1 tweed trapper hat. I have my eye on tweed hunting suit, but I will have to wait until she who must be obeyed does something bad before I can get away with buying it.

The Ensign is framed behind UV glass and is hung on the wall in my office at home about 3 feet from where I'm typing this, sitting at his desk. Its going to be a family heirloom. My grandfather was not one for medals so they sit in the desk draw but the flag represented their collective effort as crew which did mean something to him.

Aside from building bad ass computers to play games on, I also prepare for economic collapse and spend way too much money on guns, freeze died food, 55 gallon water barrels, gas masks, ammo, etc. I will soon be getting a ham radio and a false mirror from tacticalwalls.com.

I've never been big on pop culture.

You bet your ass I am. I adore his writing and the story itself. The characters are freaking awesome. The book is so big though I have no places for it XD

I own 5 CRT TV's, 3 Sufami's, 2 keytars, god know how many boomboxes...

But I guess the most awesome thing I own are my home made MLP cassettes:

My house with a bar in the living room.

A shadowbox with all the mint condition World Series tickets from both the 2010 and 2012 World Series championships for the SF Giants. It's probably my favorite baseball memorabilia that I own and probably my favorite item in my house right now. :3
