Do you collect merchandise from your favorite series? Which items and which series do you collect from?

I used to have an entire bedroom in Sailor Moon. I had a comforter, clock, wallscrolls, posters, dolls, anime cells, plushies, etc - still have most of them packed away somewhere.

Now I mostly just collect dolls. Most of the time they aren't from specific series, but they have an anime aesthetic to them. 

For example, dollfie dreams are fully articulated free standing dolls. Recently they've done Hatsune Miku, Rise from Persona, and some girls from Macross.

They are very rare limited edition dolls, so highly sought after you must enter a lottery to even get a chance to buy one.

Then they also just have base models that are available year round.

They also have some that are more human looking which so far is what I've mostly collected. Below are a couple of photos of my dolls.

The non-character dolls as it were, come unpainted and without rooted hair and without eyes they are meant to be customized either by the buyer or at time of purchase by the factory which makes each doll unique. They range in all different sizes, some as tall as a human child, to some the size of your thumb, but the most popular sizes are 45 cm and 65 cm dolls.

There's also other dolls such as Blythe, Pullip, Nendodroids and Pure Neemo. - of those I especially love Pure Neemo. These are smaller dolls about the size of Monster High or Barbie.

example (not my photo, wish she was mine though lol):
