Newsflash: Celebrities collect toys!

I often wonder what I'd do if I had them money of a software mogul or a movie star. My fantasies usually involve a lot of electronics, a lot of toys and a big house to put them in. Well, Buzzfeed posted an article about 11 celebrities and their odd hobbies. Although it came as no surprise that there'd be at least one or two celebs who used their fortune for figures, it was pretty surprising to see that Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp were on that list.

DiCaprio (Inception, The Departed, The Aviator) collects old Star Wars action figures as well as other rare toys from shows like He-Man. He apparently auctioned off a rare vinyl Jawa that went for $4,500 in 2006. Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands) has a collection of, oddly enough, Barbies. According to an interview he did a couple of years back, he would do different characters with the dolls, evidently creeping out his young daughter in the process. What's even stranger is that I'm not more surprised by that.

So what would you guys do with the millions afforded to folks like DiCaprio and Depp? Which toys would you buy and where would you put them?
