    What other fandoms are you into?

    Like the title of the thread asks: What other fandoms, aside from MOTU, are you invested in? I have several:

    Star Wars
    Star Trek
    Babylon 5
    Knight Rider
    The Dukes of Hazzard
    Batman
    G.I. Joe
    Transformers
    The Movie Trivia Schmoedown

    I'm not a huge collector of all of these, but I've got a good portion of the new Star Wars canon books and some of the comics, as well as all the movies except for the prequels (have the novelizations). I'm collecting Trek and B5 slowly, and mostly in books for the former and the DVDs in the latter. The rest I haven't started collecting yet, but I plan to change that in the near future.

    I collect just about any toys from the 80's. I frequent forums related to Transformers, Star Wars, and GI*JOE.

    Probably hisstank.com

    I'm into Star Wars, G.I. Joe, and Transformers. MOTU is the only thing I collect currently, but I still have a decent Joe and Star Wars collection.

    Fandom? i guess im heavy in MOTU, slight in Thundercats, G.I.Joe, Transformers and DC Universe. In the past I'm sticking in comics (books and magazines), animation. TV series and films but now I appreciate the toys more which I collect mainly and now my current hobby.

    The main things I have always been into are:
    Thundercats
    Masters of the Universe
    Transformers
    G.I. Joe
    Bravestarr
    TMNT
    WWE
    I used to be really into Star Wars until the sequels and Disney destroyed it.
    Over the years I have dabbled collecting numerous toylines I like but I have sold the vast majority my toy collection.

    Cool another Babylon 5 fan. What's your favorite scene? Mine is the team up fight between G'Kar and King Arthur.

    I'm also in Transformers (natch), Sonic The Hedgehog, Megaman, Star Trek Deep Space 9, more classic cartoons than I think I can name here (actually have a collection of Disney's old propaganda shorts from WW2), Code Lyoko, and Accel World.

    Was once heavily into Marvel, but around the time they hit their Dork Ages and EVERYTHING had to be multiverse crisis I discovered Anime, so got my kicks there instead.

    I have collected Transformers on and off. Not a completist but do have quite a number of figures from the recent lines.

    Apart from that just MOTU, and recently have been looking into Marvel Legends and SHFiguarts. But the latter is too expensive, so only a few figures here and there.

    That is a fantastic scene. I have three scenes that seem to take top spot for me.

    1. Ivanova's "God sent me" speech when she and her fleet are going up against those Earth Force ships.
    2. Marcus and Lenon in the hospital scene, and that laugh at the end.
    3. Ivanova's confession that she thought she loved Talia.

    And DS9 is my favorite Trek after the original series. I'm currently re-watching it right now. Finished "Return to Grace" yesterday.

    Oh those are some good scenes. Vir standing up for himself with a dueling saber was fun too, but then I liked him a lot.

    Sadly I don't have a DS9 set, so I'm relegated to YouTubing it for now, but it was easily the best Star Trek for me. Odo is one of my favorite designated alien characters.

    I don't have any action figures or other specific fandoms but I do follow The Lion King fandom and World of Warcraft fandom, not for cosplay but I'm a guy who like for doing tabletop RPG like D&D. I just don't know where to start around here in Malaysia.

    Heck yes. And Vir's conversation with Morden gets me every time.

    DS9 is on Netflix. Also, there's a channel on my Direct TV called H&I (Heroes & Icons) that shows Star Trek, TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise from Sunday to Friday nights. That's how I've been re-watching DS9.

    I used to love playing D&D, reading the manuals, etc. The only other RPG I ever really got into was RIFTS back in the day.

    Homestar Runner
    Nintendo (primarily Mario and Pokemon)
    Transformers (primarily Transformers Animated and BotBots)
    Homestuck (primarily on the Intermission side of the fandom)
    Uglydolls (both the toyline and the movie canon)
    Moose Toys (primarily Trash Pack, Grossery Gang, Shopkins, and Treasure X)
    Awesomenauts
    Best Fiends
    Warner Bros.-owned cartoons (so Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera)
    Disney (mainly the animation side)
    The Beatles
    The Aquabats!
    Classic movie monsters (mainly the "silly" versions of them)

    And probably more, but those are my "big" ones, at least right now.

    I don't believe I've ever heard of Homestuck or Uglydolls until today. Might have to check it out. Regarding Moose Toys, I never got around to collecting any of their stuff, but the Trash Pack looks like so much fun.

    Adding to my own list, can't believe I forgot LEGO, that's a HUGE fandom for me, Mixels especially, it was my "dark age pull-out" series, and also got me to try a lot of new drawing techniques.

    • Nintendo [NES]
    • Friday the 13th and horror films in general
    • The Terminator 1/2
    • The Beatles, an obsession
    • Collecting CDs and DVDs, some VHS

    I also have collected many other vintage toylines, but wouldn't say I'm part of the fandom [Silverhawks, Voltron, Mask, etc]

    I'm a HUGE Star Trek fan. I'm currently in a re-watch of Voyager (it's better than we remember!)

    I'm also a big astronomy nerd, I love finding and looking at cool stuff in space.

    Other than those, I also like Lord of the Rings, anything DC related, Star Wars, the MCU, Transformers, GI Joe, retro video games, beer, the NFL (I'm a Packers fan)
