This won't be anywhere near as impressive or complete as the other posts here, but I figured I'd show what I have out on display right now. We've been reorganizing my studio space recently and an area opened up to store my cartoon DVD collection and some other random TMNT merchandise into a kind of mini-shrine:

In the other corner I've got my NECA figures on a small bookshelf along with the Playmates Fugitoid collector figure:

And sketches from Peter Laird and Jim Lawson on a nearby wall:

The colourized First Publishing trades, the first one signed by Laird:

And some other trades/books/comics etc on my bookshelf:

Aaand the Ottawa Comic-Con exclusive IDW #45, a gift from a friend who was lucky enough to attend:

Other than that, I have a ton of Mirage and Archie comics stored away, and a bunch of 1987 and 2003 toys boxed up. And a bunch of shirts and some hoodies. But I figured I'd stick with the easily accessible stuff for now. :trazz:

It's a neat little set up similar to the one I have, this makes me want to post more of my collection. I really need those Neca figures ( the bootlegs in my case ) they're super cool looking.

The NECA figures are beloved for good reason. The only issue I've had is a few of the knee pads fell off not too long ago -- I didn't play around with them much, so I assume the glue they used just dried up, but it's an easy fix to glue them back on. But they're a thing of beauty and the bootlegs look pretty damn good too.

That looks nice - I think it's a great display that shows your collection to its best advantage. :tcool:

Thanks, penny! I think it's a decent balance for display stuff. It was wife-approved, too, and she's the first to tell me when that kind of thing gets overwhelming. :)

Oh man, I LOVE that Raphael sketch by Lawson!

I know, right?? The body language is just perfect. Got it from him about 10 years ago at FanExpo in Toronto. Only $10 or $15 if I'm remembering right, too. Some great luck on that one.

A friend just got me the new Fugitoid figure for Xmas, so I figured I'd make a little Fugitoid space on the wall ledge:

I don't recall if there's a 2003 series DVD collecting thread, so I figured I'd post this here. Not a major "find" exactly, but I found one of the elusive season 3/4 DVDs I was missing at a local pawn shop for $1.50:

(Pardon my toes at the bottom of the picture. :toops:)

I think I'm missing about five more to complete the series (or the seasons that were released).

Not a major find compared to other collections, and they ain't exactly classics, but I finally found all of the 2003 series console games. I only had the first one when it came out, and the rest I kept an eye out for whenever I went to pawn shops or used game stores. Found and bought the most elusive one, TMNT 3: Mutant Nightmare, in Toronto last weekend.

Only took 11 years to get them all. Finding time to play them might take about as long. :trazz:

Ha, thanks! Not the major-est find of all time or anything, but I'm glad I was able to track them all down "naturally" in my travels without having to pay eBay prices.

Congrats. I bought all four on the Cube years back in actual Gamestops when visiting the US as part of putting together a complete US set. I'm selling 80% of the Cube set now, but I'm keeping the TMNT titles as part of the 100 odd I'm still "collecting".

Whoa, as in every GameCube game??

We got one for really cheap not too long ago. Never owned one beforehand. Being a couple generations behind makes gaming pretty affordable. :lol:

Haha right on dude. There's a vintage gaming store in my area I'm kinda thinking of pricing an OG Xbox

Yep, I had every official US GameCube title (all 555) at one point, but started selling them off a few months ago. I'm keeping about 110 titles, and selling the rest. Got about 75 left to sell, so I've done pretty well considering I'm in the UK and most of my buyers have been in the US! I've got all the kiosk discs to get to yet, and a pile of Cube prototypes/betas, dev machines and more.

Just having a major streamline of my entire videogame collection. Sold some high value bits last year (Nuon, N64DD, Jaguar), then most of my Atari 2600 stuff, currently on the Cube, will get to Nintendo handhelds next probably (and debate to sell anything SNES or N64), and then go through my Commodore computer haul.
