I'd like to try out a new weekly thread. The idea is simple-Tell us something you were a fanatic about in the 80's or 90's and give us examples.

Were you a fan of Marvel comics? did you collect all the Marvel cards? Did you dress up for Halloween as any of the characters?

Were you a fan of Star Trek TNG? Did you go to any of the conventions? Did you wear a costume?

Did you join a fan club or a fanzine?

Did you send an actor or character a letter? Did they write back?

THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLES. You can talk about ANYTHING!

We want you talk tell us about anything extreme fan antics and of course if you can include a picture!

I'll be the first to admit I was really into Highlander back in the day.

I even bought some cool lithographs from the show. And after that I got the Official Highlander Catalog in the mail like every couple of months. Does anyone else remember this? You could buy everything from DVDs of the show to mugs, to replicas of the swords. I always wanted the swords but didn't have the money.

Someone here bought some of the swords I know it!

I also bought the TV show sound tracks vol. 1 and 2. I loved some of the music in the show especially the Irish folk song "Bonny Portmore."
