View Full Version : List All of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer [Official] Merchandise You Own!

This is a thread to list all of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer [official] merchandise that you own! List anything from books, DVD's, clothing, figurines, posters, soundtracks, etc., etc.

I, personally, have very few things to list. You see, I grew up watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In fact, I remember the first night the show ever aired. I was seven years of age. I watched the show non-stop from age seven, until I was thirteen years of age. As the years had gone by, I collected quite a bit of merchandise. However, there was a point in time where I lost interest in Buffy, and I sold about $55,000 dollars worth in [official] merchandise. So, I am currently trying to re-build my collection. Thus far, I have about, oh, five things. Yes, I do realize that I have a way to go in re-building what once was. It's fun, though. Sure, it will burn a whole in my pocket, but, it's fuuuuun!

I've got 11 Sideshow figures and the season 3 dvd set.

I have some of Sideshow's figures, the first soundtrack and the season one box set. I think I have a poster lying around here somewhere and maybe one book.

I did have several shirts and necklaces from the clothing line that was made back in 1999 or 2000, but I wore them out and don't have them anymore. I still have one necklace. I think the others I had eventually had the clasp broken on them I used to wear them so much.

I want to get seasons 2 and 3, but have just haven't gotten around to it yet because I'm collecting Dark Shadows on dvd and it's taken up all the money I have to spend on tv box sets.

One thing I have to say is that if I lose interest in something, the interest tends not to return. I've sold things over the years and only have one actual regret. I've remained a Buffy fan over the years. Not as fanatical as I was in school, but the interest still remains.

I sold my merchandise because I thought that my interest in Buffy would never return again. I was very, very wrong. I regret selling all of my merchandise simply because I did not get the money out of it that I thought I orignally would, putting into it.

Does anyone know where I can get a full list of all of the BUFFY books? I don't want any of the Angel ones. By books, I mean graphic novels, etc., etc. Basically, I just want to own all of the Buffy books once more.

Oh, and does anyone know of any good forums to discuss Buffy, that are still around today?

That's hard. It reminds me of people who loved Star Wars as kids and then got rid of their action figures and such, later regretting it as an adult. I think the older a person gets the more likely they are to retain their interest in something, at least's that been my experience. Think of it this way - as you collect Buffy this time, you'll probably enjoy it even more because you'll know your interest will be long lasting. :)

Here's a sight that might list them all: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_novels

and I sold about $55,000 dollars worth in [official] merchandise.

OMG! :horror I didn't even think there was that much buffy merchandise out there, what kind of stuff did you own for it to be worth that much.

I myself only own the 7 seasons of Buffy on DVD (region 2 bookcase editions) and the soundtrack and OMWF CD. I do intend to get some busts and of course the SS Premium format figure in the near future.

When I get older, I am going to build a special room onto my house for all of my Buffy merchandise. This may seem inelastic, but on one of the four walls in the room [the main wall] I am wanting to have a professional paint a mural [not certain as to what I want just yet] on the wall. Also, as you walk into the room, I would like the Buffy the Vampire Slayer theme to somehow play. I do not know what version I want to play, though.

Anyhow, I am planning on building my collection back up with:

- All of the books, guides, comics, novels, etc., etc.
- Clothing.
- Magazines [Hopefully I can get ALL of the back issues I have missed.]
- Plaques.
- Plates.
- Figurines [Palz, etc., etc., etccccccccc.]
- Candy.
- Posters.
- Soundtracks.
- DVD's, VHS sets, UK released DVD's and VHS, etc.
- Replicas, props, whatever.
- Cards.
- Watches.
- Light Switches.
- Bedding.
- Glasses.
- Jewelry.

Basically, everything on Power Star, which is almost every item I could ever think of to make merchandise out of!

One thing I would really love to get, but I don't know where to get it from, is that one lighting thing that the Joss, the writers, and the cast members have behind them when they are being interviewed on the extras part of the DVD's. That would be neat!

You know, everything that mentioned is very, very true. I konw that my interest will be long lasting this time around. I grew up with Buffy. =].

Also, do you know if Wikipedia has the list for everything, such as the Watcher Guides? I did not see them, but perhaps I overlooked them.

I feel like I grew up with it too. Buffy was the second tv show I became a fan of and the first one I ever became fanatical about. I was a huge Buffy fan at the start of high school and some of the clothes I wore in high school were heavily inspired by Buffy. I used to shop at the stores they said they got the actress's clothes from.

I'm not sure if that site has Watcher's Guides, I would think so. Perhaps if there's a place to search for them. I know Wikipedia is a big thing now but I'm not really all that familiar with how it's laid out.

Ahh...that reminds me of something else I still have. A book with nothing but Angel 8x10 photos....I'll have to find out where I put that.

Six Sideshow Figures:
- Grad Day Buffy
- Vampire Buffy
- Xander
- Vampire Spike
- Oz
- Werewolf Oz
with Angel (does that count?) and D'Hoffryn on Pre-Order
All three Watcher Guides
All thre CDs (OMWF, Official Soundtrack, Radio Sunnydale)

Currently, I have NO DVDs. I'm waiting for the slimmer version of the season box sets that are coming out in the end of May.

But I promise you, my collection will get bigger. :D

okay, that'd make you 16 maybe 17 years old today as the show debuted in March of 1997. When/how exactly did you sell $55,000 worth of stuff and how did you afford all of it? Mow a lot of yards/do a lot of babysitting? :lol

I am currently fifteen years of age. I will be sixteen October 1st, of this year. I got all of my merchandise through my parents. They bought it all for me. When I sold everything, I did not get near what I put [or should I say my parents?] in to it all.

Add a Seth Green autographed picture to this list. Just got back from the signing not to long ago. He's a really cool guy chated with him for awhile. Told him I was thinking of bringing the Sideshow Oz to get signed, but brought a picture instead. He said he hasnt even seen the Sideshow figure yet & that he wanted one.

I just purchased an Origins Angel figure. I guess I was sort of bummed about the lack of a SDCC exclusive so I decided to indulge myself.

Besides, he was only $17. :D

Local Comic shop had a 75% off Christmas sale on all Buffy & Angel merchandise. I went back to get Fool For Love Spike & Vamp Will, but they had done already sold them. So I bought the DST Angel, Fred, Lorne, & Wes for $3.00 each. Bought all they had of the DST figures to give to family for Christmas.

To bad it was just a little before Drusilla was released. I still need to get her & Vamp Buffy. Had the Exclusives on pre-order, but had to cancel. :(

BTW it was the same comic shop that held the Seth Green signing they had stacks of about 6 to 8 Oz's in each stack for the signing. They had to have had over 100. Most of 1 Sideshow figure i've ever seen in one place.

Over 150 comics
All PALz
About 300 magazines
Busts, statues, cards, plates, binders, DVD's, jigsaws, postcards, CCG etc.. etc..

I have collection pics if anyone ever wants to see them, just had my room shelved so I took some new ones :)

My daughter is nine and she's starting to ask questions about Buffy. She found out that the actress that plays Miranda on her favorite show Lizzie McGuire was also on Buffy (she played one of the Potentials in season seven). She is also a big "Ice Princess" fan, a movie that stars Michelle Trachtenberg... otherwise known as "The Key" to Buffy fans.

You see where this is going.... :o

Welllll....let's see.....I've been collecting for a loooonggg time, and I have a LOT of stuff. I started out buying from Moore Action Collectibles (as a club member) and bought all of the initial 6" figures, including club member's exclusives, until they went bust. When Diamond Select took over from Moore, I started up again, filling in any missed figures from E-Bay. I am not as interested in getting every single DST figure now, because I've been buying Sideshow figures. I have ALL of the Buffy/Angel figures to date (mostly exclusives). I have ALL the DVD's, some comics, a lot of books, posters, photos, key chains, bumper stickers, glassware, T-shirts.....you name it, and I've probably got it.
I also collect other Sideshow figures, but Buffy/Angel is my main "drain."
Oh yes! I have a Buffy chess set, and three life size cardboard stand ups; Buffy, Angel & Spike. Also all of the Johnny Lightening Matchbox sized cars fom B/A as well. Do I have enough space for all of this? NOT!!!
I have an entire room in my house full of my collections and I still haven't enough space to display it all. I look around and I KNOW I have to stop this maniacal obsession......but I don't wanna!!!!! SIDESHOW RULES MY WORLD!!! SIDESHOW IS THE "GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH"!!!

I have pretty much the same figures that you have... except for Willow and Faith. I can get them pretty cheap but I'm not sure if the likenesses to close enough to make me buy them. I also have an Becoming Angel on the way... thanks FF!

The ones I'm shopping for at this time is the Vampire Angel and Human Spike... the expensive ones. After that I'll probably branch out and get Prophecy Girl Buffy (with jacket), Vampire Willow and maybe the Master. I would buy Vampire Willow in a heart beat if there was a Vampire Xander planned to go with her.

I'm not sure about getting Der Kindestod. One shot demons don't really interest me... no matter how cool they look.

I'm still on the fence about keeping my D'Hoffryn order. The character really didn't appeal to me in the show but I wanted to support the line by ordering him, hoping that doing so will help insure more releases in the future.

Just kidding, although I'm a little surprised. I think you're the first person I've heard say that. I agree with you on the figure being underrated. Other than the likeness issue, I think it's nice. :) And the Slayer Scythe accessory is to die for. :cool: Actually, it may be better than the Factory X version. ;) :D

Don't worry, "once bitten" (as the vamps say) you'll eventually catch up!:D

I forgot to mention I started collecting the Buffy Figures 6 weeks ago ;) Pretty much all of those I picked up relatively cheap either from Ebay or on special from an Australian E-retailer.

Basically I got led to Sideshow by the Highlander figures that were advertised on DarkHorizons - and then about 2 months later they announced the Star Wars Franchise.

So I've got all 5 of the Highlander figures, all the main X-files ones (don't have the tac Doggett or Mulder, or the Operations Scully, or Frank Black), a stack of Bonds I picked up from Germany (Connery Tuxedo Bond, Brosnan Tuxedo Bond, Jaws, ***** Galore, Live & Let Die Roger Moore) and the Green Fatigues Brosnan, both Van Helsing Figures (Anna looks better after I gave her a haircut). I also managed to get Nazi Kroenen and Ultimate Hellboy.

Got all the Star Wars & LOTR 12" on pre-order.

So yes the Sideshow Bug has definitely bitten.

Hey Azrael, another Highlander fan! I have those same first five as well.
Can't wait to get Connery in his fancy feathered hat. Do you think they'll go more with the movie characters, or Adrian Paul's TV version? If they do both, that could mean a LOT of figures! Oh well, the more the MONEY-IER!
As a post script, I don't do "BOND", but I have the 2 LOTR on pre-order as well, and I'm playing catch up with X-Files.....(once I finally made up my mind to collect them. Same with SW.) BUT, Buffy & Angel are still my #1 collection. Good luck with your acquisitions!

I suspect unfortunately that Highlander might not see more figures for a while - given the next logical figure would be Origins Kurgan and Sideshow seems to have an issue with armour. Maybe when they solve the issue for LOTR and Star Wars we'll see Kurgan in his armour.

I'd really like Methos, Richie and Amanda figures. Apart from Connery and Origin Kurgan I think the films are largely complete figure wise - and apparently Connery's likeness isn't included in the Highlander licence :( I'm going to attempt a custom Ramirez to compensate.

I got into Sideshow in February '04 when announced that they acquired the Planet of the Apes license and that they would be making a 12" line as well as a PF line. The PF line never materialized. :monkey2 :monkey2 :monkey2

So I started looking at what else Sideshow had to offer. I began picking up all of Army of Darkness figures and the Hellboy figures. Then the Apes began to arrive. It was a GREAT year of collecting for me.

Just when I thought that I woud be investing in another company, Sideshow announces BOTH the Star Wars and LOTR 12" lines. So far I've pre-ordered all that they've offered so far.

Then of course, I've gotten bitten by the Buffy vammpires! I've got a lot of catching up to do!

So all of my disposable income is now consumed by all things Sideshow. How did this happen?

And FF, I forgot about Dru... she is definately on my list of figures to get. I can't believe I forgot her. And you are right, I think she would look great with my Vampire Spike.

Anybody else on the fence about D'Hoffryn?

I would love a D'Hoffryn but couldn't justify the expense of shipping. The never ending saga of shipping. I thought it had sold out though.

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I pre-ordered D'Hoffryn but I'm thinking of cancelling my order. I pre-ordered him BEFORE I ever saw him in an episode, I think I was on the second season at the time.

Since then, I've seen all of the Buffy episodes (and I've just finished the third season of Angel) and I wasn't really sold on the character. He doesn't appear in the last season of Angel does he?

I also pre-ordered him with the belief that I was supporting a line that I wanted to see more of in the future. But I have SO many figures to buy to catch up in the world of Buffy, I don't know if I should keep my order.

I have the seven seasons of "Buffy" and five seasons of "Angel" on DVD.
I have SSC 12" Grad Day Buffy, Prophecy Buffy, Human Spike, Vamp Spike, Human Angel, Vamp Angel, Willow, Vamp Willow, Xander, Oz, and currently that's it. I've had all the SSC figures in the line at one time or another but ended up either selling them or giving them away for one reason or another. I have the new Angel Series Angel on order and might end up getting rid of my Buffy version. I just don't keep a lot of multiples on the cast.
And that's about it. I'm not a huge Buffy collector, just pretty much the stuff that suits my general interests, 1/6th figures and DVD's. I love the show, just not that many of the souveniers and memorabelia.

Hey y'all.....Concerning the Highlander question I posted earlier.....I opened a thread on SSC Movie & Tv Collectibles page, because I thought better of bringing the question up here. HOWSOMEVER I was shot through the heart there, after being informed...NO RAMIREZ! So I too, will seek a Bond 007 that I can turn into Ramirez. (harrrumph!) Customizing, here I come.

About D' Hoffryn; if they come out with a Demon Anya, you might want to think it over.......cancelling, I mean. What's D'Hoffryn without Demon Anya?
And Demon Anya without D'Hoffryn?

We've got duos all the way through; Buffy/Vampire Buffy, Willow/Vampire Willow, Oz/Werewolf Oz, Angel/Vampire Angel, Spike/Vampire Spike, and all their other incarnations. It just follows that we're going to get a human faced Darla somewhere down the line (maybe in Angel), and D'Hoffryn leads us to Demon Anya, who comes out as Anya (who Xander left at the altar), etc.etc. I know it's just guessing on my part, but it's logical guessing.

And by the way, again I ask Sideshow, WHERE'S MY GILES???!!!

Bartender, get me whatever he's drinking. :chug :duff

Just kidding, although I'm a little surprised. I think you're the first person I've heard say that. I agree with you on the figure being underrated. Other than the likeness issue, I think it's nice. :) And the Slayer Scythe accessory is to die for. :cool: Actually, it may be better than the Factory X version. ;) :D

Im not as think as you drunk I am. :D

I've been a bit on the fence about D'Hoffryn. I thought he was a good character but not one I was particurlarly fond of. But, that said, I ordered two! My youngest daughter really loved the figure and I know if I got one for her I'd regret not having it for myself. And I've been pleasantly surprised by figures that I thought I just liked but when I received them really loved how they look. Origins Angel is one of those that I thought he looked good in the proto shots but looked fantastic in real life. I actually never thought David B. looked good in those flashbacks but he looks fantastic as the figure! And Der Kindestod is another one I was on the fence about because of the very small role he had in the entire series but once I got him, he looked fantastic displayed with my other figures.

I'll probably do the same if I get the new Angel. I'm waiting until I see it in person, and if the headsculpt looks as good as the picture I'll probably buy it and sell the Angel I have. Like you, I'm not really interested in multiple versions of the same character...maybe if they came out with an Angelus in the period clothes. I just don't want or need two modern day Angels.

I have fifteen Buffy figures. Stopped myself getting more by collecting the Universal Monster PF's. There's no way out of here.
