and an unmentionable or two on my hard drive Big Smile Smilie
I`ve got:
FOTR video,
LOTR trilogy(paperback)
Legolas poster (SIGH........) It says on it:

A TTT poster with the following characters on it,
*King Teoden,
*& Eowyn.
I`ve also got printed pics from the internet, from both FOTR and TTT.
Not much is it, but it doesn`t matter.
I have a display of some of my friends work on my wall and I made a info poster on TTT and FOTR. That`s also on my wall.
I`m going to get some more things though. Big Smile Smilie
Oh, yes, I'm very much a collector of things I like.

When I get going, there is no stopping me. I used to be a member of the fantasy and sci fi book club. I collected most of the books then. I got 11 of the 12 history of middle Earth series as a christmas present off my dad and paid ’150 for the lot. No. 12 volume came out later and I bought that straight away.

Also, does Bored of the rings book count? I have that too.
I don’t think so.
Why buying that book?
I have a relatively humble collection:

The Hobbit - Collector's Hardcover Slipcase Edition
The Lord of the Rings - Hardcover Alan Lee Illustrated
The Lord of the Rings - Paperback (John Howe illustration of Gandalf on cover)
The Lord of the Rings - Paperback (Movie edition, Nazgul on cover... it was a gift)
The Silmarillion - Paperback
Unfinished Tales - Paperback
J.R.R. Tolkien: Architect of Middle Earth
The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien
Parma Endorion: Essays on Middle Earth (E-book edition)
LOTR: FOTR DVD Widescreen Edition
LOTR: FOTR Collector's Extended DVD
LOTR: The Two Towers PS2 videogame

And I'm on my way to getting the History of Middle Earth series... can't believe that the index to the series is a separate book by itself...
Okay after doing a lot of rooting in dusty boxes etc, here's mine....

The must-reads and must-haves for a Tolkien fan, haven't got time for more.. yet. Oh and i have a TTT-poster on our living room wall.
Okay here we go...

Lord of the Rings (3 in 1 edition, Allen.Unwin, first paperback 3 in 1 edition from the '60s somewhere, can't be bothered to check it's exact date right now. Much battered, dog-eared and dropped in the bath)
Lord of the Rings (another 3 in 1,Harper Collins hardback, Alan Lee illustrated, should cost loads, didn't though.)
The Hobbit (paperback cheap harper collins copy, also much beaten up and dropped in the bath)
The Hobbit (big Harper Collins hardback, Alan Lee illustrated again)
The Silmarillion (Big Harper Collins hardback, Alan Lee illustrated again, wohoo! A full set of 3!)
Unfinished Tales (Houghton Mifflin hardback, old and knackered)
Book of Lost Tales 2 (paperback, old dull white cover, Unwin)
Lays of Beleriand (matches the lost tales 2)
The Lost Road (matches the other 2)
Atlas of Middle Earth (the one so beloved of Grondy)
Tolkien- The Illustrated Encyclopedia- David Day (a bit rubish really, but sometimes useful)
Characters from Tolkien- David Day again (much the same)
Meditations on Middle Earth- edited by Karen Haber (very cool indeed)
So you think you know the Lord of the Rings? (Harper Collins quiz book- Xmas pressie from my sister)
Lord of the Rings- Making of the Movie Trilogy, Brian Sibley (another Xmas pressie)
Bored of the Rings (It is Tolkien related)

Fellowship of the Ring (PJ's theatrical cut on VHS, soon to be donated to my gf's kids)
Fellowship of the Ring extended DVD
Lord of the Rings (Saul Zaentz/Ralph Bakshi- 1978 VHS)
The Hobbit (Rankin/Bass VHS)

Other stuff
Nice Alan Lee set of pictures from Lotr (6 in all, on my living room wall)
John Howe Pelennor fields poster (also on my living room wall)
Loads of bits from the John Howe 2001 calendar cut up and stuck on the wall as well (some of it framed and masquerading as expensive)
Bunch of posters and postcards that came with Empire and Total Film in the lead up to both movies. Plus CD-ROM promotional materials for both movies, and nearly every magazine special that led up to the release, and the reviews of course (Empire, Total Film, Daily Mail specials, Sunday Times specials).
No toys or games though, not really my thing (though someone's bound to think it is eventually and buy me more junk to clog up my flat)

oh and 9 big scary dudes on horses that hang around outside my flat hissing "Bagginsssss, SSSShire...."

Crikey, forgot some stuff...

BBC Lotr on CD (not recorded off of the radio honest...)
That Bo Hansson LP Val's got as well.
And many Zep albums with Tolien inspired stuff on it (and other prog-rock type stuff)
And a couple of my own things that are Tolkien based (sort of)
