I have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to many video games so that makes me a nerd right there.  Plus posting on an anime website is kinda nerdy in a way as well.

@sora_thekey: Okay, the number of things I HAVE versus the number of things I HAVE had are very very different, especially since I just went through a move =P
 
That said, I don't really do t-shirts. The style doesn't look good on me, so I don't buy them, as a general rule. I like tanktops and more fitted shirts usually ^^; The t-shirts I DO own are almost invariably from giveaways or presents.
 
But manga and anime DVDs, between getting rid of stuff before I moved from Portland and giving stuff away as prizes, I don't actually have that much..I try to mostly hang on to things I think I'll actually re-watch or want to show someone, which isn't as many as you'd think.
 
Console-wise, I own a Wii, a PS3, a DS, and a PSP, out of the current-gen stuff. I also have my PS2 (my ps3 isn't backwards-compatible) and I co-own a GameCube with a pal of mine, though it's with her in Portland. I used to have a Gameboy (never had a GBA), PS1, SNES, Sega Genesis, and NES, though none of these are still around anymore.
 
I never had a dreamcast! This makes me kind of sad. :\
 
Figures, on the other hand, i have grown something of a small collection of. It actually all happened pretty quickly, before I new it I had a whole desk worth @_@;;

@JJOR64: I would say geek instead of nerd.... I always though of Nerds as studious people while geek are the ones who have all of the above! 
 
@gia: I have the same problem with T-Shits... I only have two.... A ComicVine T-Shirt and a Superman-like T-Shirt but instead of an "S" I have "ASL" on it!

you may want to try venturing into damashi product line, they are even more expensive (well basic revoltech to basic damashii that is) btu has better (stronger) joins, oh amd sometimes it did models that didn't have a revoltech of, like eureka seven nirvash, and they did arbalest first
