Dromer's Home/Collection On Imgur?

http://imgur.com/gallery/CSSHk

I swear I've seen the contents of this house before. Did it belong to one of you?

The best I can do on this is the reddit user who posted this gallery.
http://www.reddit.com/user/Topherstiles
This person claims to know the new owners of the residence, therefore making them the owners of this stuff. If you have a reddit account you can PM them and ask for contact info. It seems like they're selling this stuff.
"Also, they are selling this stuff so PM me if you want their information." is what he posted in one response.
Since the new owners know nothing about what they have and seem ready to part with it, my guess is that the owner of the collection may have passed away very suddenly.

I just saw that, I think I have seen some of it the Extreme Design FX Raph suit, the Raph and Daredevil picture and leo drawing from the first movie... It sucks to loose all that stuff but worse if he/she lost their home and everything

In the pic of the plush Raph, you can read the mailing address on the box behind it. It may, or may not be where this is, though...

Here's whats happening, the original owner moved to SoCal and sold the house fully furnished (in this market it's a selling point, as if Hawaii isn't good enough). The new owners want to unload most of it, however they want to do it in bulk, for the tmnt collection they are asking 20k.
Also if you are on the big island they will give you a tour to see it all in person.

Yes, the collection does belong to this Dromer

Hi, all

I'm relatively new to the site. It was the purchase of this estate, with its TMNT collection, that led me to you. This is not a hoax or trap. I just happen to fall into the sewer, get mutated, and discover all this stuff
Really, though, the fact that I own all of these things is true.

Regards, Seagoat

Welcome aboard! Our main interest was who the former owner was, as many of us are fairly certain they were a one-time poster here.
If being the new owner has reinvigorated your interest in the TMNT, then that's awesome!

Previous Owner

I don't believe the previous owner was a Dromer. He mentioned sites he's been on when we talked of the collection, and even ran off some pages to substantiate some of the items, but didn't say anything about The Technodrome Forums.

I just found out about this crazy story from this link.

Do we know what happened to the former owner? I feel so bad for him...

The movie weapons are so amazing. I always wondered what Leo's swords were made of and how they got them to look so old and beat up.

Nothing came from this thread, that's for sure. It'd be nice to find out something after all these years.

There's a creepiness to all this, for sure.
