Hi all.

Since I can't put my tmnt stuff up for sale in here because I haven't made 20 posts before,

So I just want to ask you, because I got some pretty rare stuff, for example a whole bunch of original tmnt pre-production drawings from errol mccarthy (discussed earlier in here) and a nearly complete comic collection not on english though, but these comics are quite possibly the best looking and maybe only intact ones that exist (tatoos, panini stickers, poster in number 1 that were never removed etc. all mint with white pages) from the cartoons series, do anyone of you know some kind of tmnt museum or a really great toy museum where I can donate this stuff to?

Thanks for your help.

Michele Ivey has been planning one for most of her adult life. I'd hit her up, I think she'll be opening it soon and curating it.

Andrew is making a joke. We all know that museum will never open.

Hold onto your items. At present there is no such place, nor will there be in the future. I would suggest you make a virtual museum, if anything. You know, a blog or website.

I for one would be interested in scans of that early art, as would many others!

Yeah, don't expect there to ever be a dedicated TMNT "museum," however there may be some college/university libraries or archives that might be interested. A couple years ago, Peter Laird donated a big statue to the UMass W.E.B. Du Bois Library:

So maybe their staff would be interested in adding a pop-culture collection.

I agree with Powder. I'd love to see those McCarthy scans!

Well now wait a minute. She's been working on this museum for 20 years... she has got to have some kind of plan/business plan to see it all through to fruition, right? Otherwise, why would she bother?

Maybe I should just keep them, I'll maybe do if nothing comes up, but I am seriously downsizing my collection.

Michele Ivey. She also runs Cowabunga Corner. Here is some places you can find her:

I'm sure if you want to donate her your TMNT collection she would love to put it to good use for her long awaited TMNT museum.

Sorry and not to be rude, but she looks to really love tmnt and maybe the nickelodeon line the most? She dosen't seem to have anything rare in her collection, anyone can buy figures from ebay all the time sorry and that's also cool to have, but in that regard I already found a big toy museum in the US, the biggest as far as I know.

Hot spot or Scratch, yeah they are pricey but not rare at all.

Nah, look a little closer. She's got like whole Turtle suits from the movies and NT:TNM and... literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in stuff at this point. She's the biggest TMNT fan on the planet.

She's also the spokesperson of the fandom.

Nobody who entered the TMNT fandom after say...2005/2006...really knows who Michelle Ivy is.

She's only really known to the oldest members of the fandom from like 15 years ago.

I think "working on the museum" just means buying more turtle crap.

God, what I would give to have some of those people back. I miss having intelligent conversations with fellow fans who respected and valued each other's opinions and ideas!

Sure Ivey may be an oddball, but hey atleast she's willing to share her love of the TMNT with people and not keep them to herself like some people here would probably do.

Nearly all those people are in their mid-30's now, I'm sure most of them are married with kids.

I am interested in seeing some pics. I want to set up a museum eventually but it is a HUGE hassle. I started a mini museum on facebook for the moment though.

Thanks, very cool turtle suits she have there really. I have been thinking about it in the last couple of days and I might just try to sell them in here instead, but only as one lot. the comics are going to my friend in norway or maybe will just try to sell them in my country, we have almost the same language anyway.

That is understandable. Hopefully a real museum can be set up one day. TMNT deserves that much at least.

Yep, it was alot more friendly in the earlier days.

But, that could be said of the entire net. not just TMNT areas. I wouldn't meet anyone online these days. everyone is just too nasty or crazy.

And again, that's coming from me...so how bad must other people come off?

There is only so much room for a different brand of a museum, and would work best as part of a rotating exhibit at any general pop cultural museum. Sure, there is in Philadelphia a pizza museum, and anything relating to the numerous pizza references may work, and then you have comic book musuem. Baltimore, Maryland also has Geppi's Entertainment Museum that could incorporate some of the iconic figures. Then in San Francisco, there is the Cartoon Art Museum where if you have a bunch of cels from the OT or other drawings, storyboards, or scripts from any other series would come in handy. To the OP, there is the Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art that could deal with the newspaper comic, but IMO your best bet is to try New York's Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art; after all, this is where the TMNT are based, and would surly delight visitors!

But I'd venture that we'd have a Star Wars Museum first, and that doesn't exist yet in this galaxy.

A perfect example of how to execute a private collection into a real exhibit.
