I'm sure we have collections of non-Star Wars stuff, so feel free to share it here.

Recently I've nose dived into collecting World War Robot stuff. Amazing toys designed by Ashley Wood. There are book/comics for them too (though some of them are mostly heavy art books with a little bit of misc history tossed in for fun, regardless I love the artwork).

There are two types, WWR, and WWRP. WWR is 1/6 size (huges, over a foot tall), and WWRP is 1/12 size.

Note: not my pictures...

Wow, those look really cool. For some reason WWII has such an aesthetic quality. I'm not sure why. Confused

Indeed. I'm pleasantly surprised by the amount of detail put into those figurines.

I like that some of them have completely articulated fingers. Allows for a lot of movement and poses. Some people have really done some awesome stuff photography wise with them.

Sideshow Collectibles has a Thor Frog. I don't know why, but it's actually kind of neat looking (though, knowing Sideshow, way too expensive).
