I've been working on completing as many series as possible. Usually lose, but I get some MOC occasionally. I figured I'd post some new pics. I got a lot of good stuff this summer. Those yardsales and feamarkets dont know what kind of treasures they're giving up.

The universal monsters are some of my favorite figures. And I can always appreciate the giant Samurai Raph.

I'm mainly focused on 1998 to about 1997 so in that aspect yes I have a good bit more haha The rarer ones have still eluded me because, I refuse to pay over 5$ for a fig. Im confident they'll show up eventually. I just sold a good amount of doubles and yet I'm still running out of space. For the time being I think ill focus more on completing and not buying every 25 cent fig I can find.

My newly acquired blimp is slowly leaking :( I can't hear any air coming out of it and when im blowing it up nothing is leaking out. Does anyone know if thats what they just do after time. I feel like its just seeping out of the skin.

Fill up a bathtub full of water and submerge the blimp in it...that will show you where the leak is

Im not sure quite what you mean I dont have book there. I have vintage tmnt folders on all the bookcase walls that dont have MOC on them. I picked up about 8 for 25cents a piece. They're awesome just to display. They have some of the same graphics used for other books and comics, so thats probably what you thought.

This summer was the summer of vehicles for me. Everywhere i went i was finding them for a dollar, of course everything that isnt attached is never there, so my vehicles are less than complete, but for a buck I cant leave them there.

Thanks for all the recent comments. I was just home and should have taken some new pictures. I picked up a lot of new things recently including a huge bag of accessories, so I've completed quite a few more things. My wall is also now covered in NICK turtles haha. Its closing in around me but I'm really started to feel like I've put a dent in the tmnt toy lines. Things are harder to find now and Im started to have to put out some cash for the things I need.

Im living with my gf in a small apartment for school. I kept joking I was going to bring all the turtles when we moved in and she wasnt happy haha. So I snuck in a few and put them up real high on the door molding so she can't pull them down.

If you look at cave Leo, its the book/pic/folder to his right. Has Rocksteady on it. What is that?

Yeah its a folder, next time Im home ill snap some better pics of them.

My updated moc wall with nick turtles and night shadow leo. Haven't gotten metalhead, fishhead, or dogpound up yet, I left them up at school. Also completed my loose 1988 case minus a few throwing stars. Amazing it took me that long to come across a loose april.

Finally bit the bullet and got a scale tail, sandstorm, and doctor el (I discovered the bone weapon, so all hes missing is his headress now) also picked up the entire automutation series, with varying degrees of completeness.

Had a few things come in while I was at school. Didn't have a lot of time to figure out where they're going yet so I plopped them in the bookcase. Grabbed 3 of the trolls at nice and large portion of move III (and they are so hideous, but I need them haha) I didn't take any pictures, but I also picked up all of the Dino vehicles and a Giant Leo with belt as well as merdude and monty moose (merdude complete and monty with a few accessories)

I had one of those overwhelmed by my own collection moments when I was looking for homes for these new figs. This winter I might have to clear a shelf and get ride of some doubles. I'm coming across a lot of extra accessories so I might have some fairly complete ebay auctions. Ill inform if and when im departing from some.

Almost forgot I tacked up the new Nick turtles. Which are now creeping around my doorway... I'm being consumed lol

I thought I'd post this cause I just caught a glimpse of it on Toy Hunter. Pull string Freddy Kruger. My sister found this washed up on the beach in Maryland. She texted me and went "look how creepy this things is!" I was like pick that up wash it off and give it to me haha.

Recently boxed up all my doubles and cleared an entire shelf and then minutes later it was filled back up. It's just endless. Playmates came out with a lot of figs haha When I first started to get serious with tmnt collection two years ago I never would have guess this many figs existed. Surprisingly the ones I had gotten from yardsales when I was 10 are some of the rarer ones I never come across now.

Some recent additions. I've almost complete 1988-1993.

Figured I'd show some updated photos just cause I was excited to have complete some things haha

Found my old M.U.S.C.L.E. men I knew I had stored away (also found a mini rocksteady that I had no idea I had)

Also finished my trolls.

And finally bit the bullet and paid a decent amount for a Giant Mike. Finished the original Giants.

Also have the entire toxic crusader line coming from ebay hopefully soon. Can't wait to check em out.

Did some inventory on my 88' accessories. Discovered I'm 2 foot solder accessories away from having a truly complete 1988 set. I'm also one Raphael away from having all soft heads as well. I've been trying to find all these pieces since I was about 6 haha.

For you all you transformers fans. I didn't know what he was but for 50 cents I wasnt going to leave it. Found out he's 1987 Snaptrap. Even had his helmet still. I never come across transformers.

Pretty sure I paid around 75 including shipping. He popped up on eBay and I through a max bid and just let it sit. The other guy stopped bidding at my exact max bid and I won it.
