MrPliggins' Collection
 
A few have asked me to share some pics of my collection. I have some free time lately, so why not?
My collection is pretty focused, and not very large. It's mostly comic-related items, very few toys/figures.
Also, there really is no order, rhyme or reason to these pics!

Scat #1, a pre-TMNT publication featuring an early Laird few-page comic story:

Upperground #1, a 1985 publication with a Laird Leonardo pin-up (already signed when bought):

TMNT Adventures pages purchased from Chris Allan in 1994. I also purchased #48's original cover, but unfortunately sold it a few years back.

MrPliggins 04-15-2013 09:29 AM

Thanks for the kind words guys! It's cool to see it all in one place, as most of it is not displayed. Here are a few more things:

Leatherhead by Matt Roach, mid-'90s. Ran into Ryan Brown at the con, so he signed it too

Poster from Comicfest '93 Philadelphia, 11x17, signed by all Mirage attendees. This is where I bought that one CAW piece from Lawson

Here is a set of cool Eric Talbot prints I bought from him at a '94 Philly convention. They aren't TMNT, but I've never seen them anywhere else so I thought they'd be cool to share. They are roughly 11x16

Very cool stuff - I've always wanted to get into collecting original art, but I never see anything that I MUST have (that my wife will let me splurge on, anyway)...

LH 04-15-2013 04:22 PM

Very awesome work! I especially like that Leatherhead sketch!(You got to meet Ryan Brown? That's awesome!):tgrin:

I hear you..lucky I got most of the art long ago when they were relatively cheap. I think the Chris Allan and CAW pages were about $30 each at the time.

Yeah, Ryan was a local to my area. I ran into him a few times at the local flea market too.

Ah, that's right..I do have the portfolio case around here somewhere..but can't find it at the moment.

Animation Cels:
At the moment I only collect animation cels from the first season of the 1987 cartoon. Here's what I've collected. All of them have reproduction backgrounds, some accurate, some not:

Ep 1, Turtle Tracks:
Alas, I've only been able to find one cel from episode 1:
http://i65.tinypic.com/2ahd1tc.png

Ep 5, Shredder & Splintered:
These cels almost tell the story. My goal is to find a cel from every major character of the episode. April, Bebop and Shredder are so hard to spot!

For this one, I digitally repainted the correct background and the Shredder overlay:
