Hi buddies.
Here's a few pics of my collection. Well, a chunk of it at least.
I have more stuff stuck inside containers in my closet, including the complete playset and a few vehicles like the pizza thrower and the mutant module, just to name a few. For now, these are what i have on display, but I'll pull the other stuff out later to share with you guys. (I'm sure by now you've seen it all though.)


Anywho, some of these 80s figures were from my original collection as an 11 year old...back in 1989 I believe. Many have been acquired through conventions and ebay. Many of these are 100% complete and in very nice condition though most of my foot soldiers are missing some of their weapons. I believe only one of them is 100% complete. Krang's exo is missing his shoulder strap (ugh!!) but I'll be getting a replacement strap made soon (for display purposes) and his little hatch door, I will obtain soon enough...
I'm a stickler for completion. Non of these are reissues btw.

And here's my current Nickelodeon TMNT toy collection thus far. I mostly like to collect only the basic figures in a series so you may not see any of the LARP or other gimmicky figures in my collection.

I'll be back soon with more photos of my playset and many other figures in storage. :P

Thanks buds. ;) Not sure how much more I'll add to my existing collection after the Stockman wave hits. I may have to store other favorite collectibles away if I'm to make more room for the upcoming waves. My closet is already a bit loaded. lol.

Yep, Groundchuck. :) Used to be one of my favorites when I was a kid. I managed to find all his gear a few months ago. Sorry for the blurriness of the pic.

This is exactly how I hope to display my collection (which is all loose) some day. Looks awesome, man. Dope photos, too.

hey buds! Thanks a ton!

I didn't realize we could post pics of toys outside of our turtle collection.
I thought I'd place these pics here (some of you may have already seen these in another thread)

As I stated before, I used to be a huge McFarlane Toys fan (mainly with the comic book line of figures which included Wetworks and Youngblood) and spent years collecting figures since the early 2000s. I was sooo obsessed with Spawn back then, much like many around my age.

I don't really buy Spawn figures anymore but I still love the sculpt work on these. The artists have done phenomenal work for Todd over the years.

I'm about 45 figures short of having completed the entire Spawn line, which doesn't include the repaints and factory mishaps of course.
Not really sure how much longer I'll keep these around. Been thinking I may push them out soon in order to make room for other interests. Perhaps actual statues.

I have around 450 figures (loose) and a little over 130 figures MOC in my walk-in closet. I don't play with them and keep them clean year after year but regardless, I've experienced lots of breaks I had to repair. Mainly with the weak peg joints around their knees and arms. They grew quite brittle. Aside from that, they've held up well (considering not being played with).

I'll take close up shots soon.:)

Like most of these collections there was clearly a huge time and money investment that went into this awesome array of toys. Lots of respect man :)
