thanks everyone! i spend alot of time in that room, its kinda crazy how it all came together.

but i use thumb tacks. seem to work nice. even unpunched you can slide it on the tack without really damaging the tack connection. :)

Heres one more of that left corner:
http://i49.tinypic.com/5wxsvb.jpg

Wait...so how do you hang the unpunched cards with thumbtacks?

joetheripper
07-29-2012, 10:15 PM
cause theres like a sliver that sticks off the end of a thumb tack. and u can slide it in. idk not that hard to understand lol. punches are held by a small part at the bottom therefor the top can move a lil without ripping the punch connection. idk thats about the best i can explain it.

Ahhh...I see what you're saying now. I had to go grab one and physically look at it. I guess I thought the punch connection was at the bottom AND sides/top (I've never hung my figures on the wall, but am going to do it soon)

No problem, I took advantage of the quantity discount recently. They are delivered, just waiting for invoice with ECD which takes a week usually. I hope you got the $3 professional cleaning I always do that.

Can never go wrong with case fresh! What were the sub grades? What are your thoughts?

joetheripper
09-21-2012, 07:18 PM
Don
C85 B85 F85

Krang doesnt have sub grades due to just being a box. so he just AFA 85 NM+

But thoughts go as:
really sweet knowing no dirty hands will touch item again. value went up, obv.

krang was suppose to be clear view style, which they messed up on. but there taking it back and recasing it due to mess up.

got the uv upgrade on krang as well. so he can be nice and displayed.

anticipation waiting for your items sucks... lol

tried looking for complete auctions of tyranno shredder... came up very unsuccessful. I feel like this line and character are a lot rarer than it seems. Came about because I found a roached loose one and it sparked my interest. Very nice graded figs you have. Definitely worth the grading.

nice collection , and well displayed , glad to see this stuff out to be viewed , rather than in a rubbermade tote hiding from the sun and dust , i would spend a lot of time in that room if i had it ,no such thing as a bad day when you can sit down and everywhere look you see turtle awsomeness , who in the hockey pic? i play , how many hockey/tmnt fans here ?

joetheripper
12-08-2012, 01:38 PM
thanks ninja, yea i spend alot of time in there. its my studio. so im always doing music stuff in there. as for the hockey picture its "pavel bure" the russian rocket! my favorite player growing up. even tho i was a goalie. its autographed as well. my living rood is full of hockey memorabilia. maybe ill get a pic up here sometime.

Kevin G
12-09-2012, 01:31 PM
I absolutely love your collection joetheripper. I agree with the many comments that is well organized and very, very neat. You definitely put a lot of hard work and I'm sure it was no easy task in collecting these figures, but the journey is far from over with the 2012 series and classic collection figures :tgrin:

I apologize for the naive questions (and they were probably already asked) but I wanted to ask:

How were you able to obtain all those MOC Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures in perfect blister card condition ? I go on ebaY and even the MOC figures that are for sale (that go from $24 - $50) all have creases, bents, the price tag is still on, the bubble is brown and the white from the blister card can be seen, looking at these, they are in immaculate condition, how did you obtain these if I may ask ?
Did you buy these when they first came out ? Or did you have pay a lot of money for them since they are perfect condition ? I wanted to buy a MOC 1989 Baxter Stockman but in really good condition and even the ones that go for a lot of money, have bents, creases and some with the tags still on them ?

If you bought them with the tags (like say when they were bought from Toys "R" Us or Target) how did your remove them ?

I live in apartment building, so you may not have these problem (as I gather you live in a house) but I was told that if like say the blister card is hung from say like the ceiling going down that it may worp due to heat. How do you prevent that problem from happening to your figures ?

Your collection is really making me want to collect MOC figures now. I have all NECA Cult Classic figures up on my wall but I don't know if those are worth anything, plus I don't have a studio so I'm not sure how people would take coming into a room with wall to wall TMNT figures lol.

But I salute you man. Great collection and please keep us updated when you get more stuff.

joetheripper
12-10-2012, 08:21 PM
kevin! Appreciate the comments very much so!

first i guess ill start with condition and what not. i do buy figures still now adays. every now and then ill spend a lil more than i wanted on a figure off of ebay or from a collector. i also hunt on ebay everyday, you would be quite surprised some good deals you can find on some rare figures. but that apart of collecting. some of these figures ive had since the mid 90's. been collection on and off since then. ive sold off all my toy boxes full of loose figures back in like 2003 when that run of toys was coming out. i had alot of these in storage at my moms house. but i now own my own so i finally got somewhere to put it. and thats my studio where i try and make music so im in there all the time.

ever since zoloworld cases have came out ive been trying to get all my figures in those. cept the ones that are worth alot more ive been sending in to get graded.

as far as heat in my room and warping. its a basement room. doesnt really ever get warm. one of the windows doesnt get sunlight, and the other one only gets the tail end of sunset. and i have sunlight/heat blocking sheet in the window.

dont ever remove the tags. that just decreases the value. fyi. also on condition of figures off like ebay. you just gotta really look at pictures. or ask the seller if your iffy on something.

Hope this all helps! I really appreciate you interest!

yea the dino are sweet. bubbles are so big they can get damaged pretty easily. I sold my tricera mike, someday will get another in good condition. other priority it figures first tho. Thank you as well!

funny thing is im always trying to figure out how you get such crisp photos with no flash glare, just never works with or without flash for me. with the polly bag on as well. makes no sense. :/

I actually wanted to ask you a question joetheripper being I'm a MOC collector myself. I notice you have all of the 2012 figures. Are all of those MOC ? I'm having an extreme difficultly trying to find those figures where the cards are in perfect condition. For Example, sometimes the bubble on the card wasn't glue correctly, so the bubble will either be a little or way off the card, the obvious dents and bents etc.

I know those aren't extreme closeups but they look to be good condition.

Kevin G
06-15-2013, 04:55 PM

I actually wanted to ask you a question joetheripper being I'm a MOC collector myself. I notice you have all of the 2012 figures. Are all of those MOC ? I'm having an extreme difficultly trying to find those figures where the cards are in perfect condition. For Example, sometimes the bubble on the card wasn't glue correctly, so the bubble will either be a little or way off the card, the obvious dents and bents etc.

I know those aren't extreme closeups but they look to be good condition.

Yea there all in near mint. very minor wear on the bottom edges of a few. Only had to get april twice. due to condition. and my dogpound has a crease on the back.

Also do you have figures loose displayed ?

i have a shell slammin mike loose displayed. other than that sold all my loose stuff in the early 2000's. wouldnt mind a loose complete hot spot chillin on my desk. allways thought he looked so sweet with the mask on.
