Heck yeah it's reality TV at its finest.
Well it sounds like you invest a great deal of thought into every acquisition. How do you decide what to display and what to store?

No turtle room at the moment. No space! My 10 year old would lose his mind. Right now they are all in approx 25 numbered thick heavy duty rubbermaid tubs and a corresponding database spreadsheet. One time, I forgot to type in my spreadsheet which number tub a newly aquired figure was in. Lost him for months. #truestory

You don't display nothing? Oh dude! But yeah better not to temp the little ones. Lost for months, that's hilarious, but only because I can relate. I have moved to using clear sterilite tubs and that helps some being see through. I want to catalog my collection someday. Seems like a fun project actually when I think about it.

Oh yeah, I use dark blue grey tubs or non transparent tubs. I can't afford to let him know where my "stash" is! The lids snap on real tight too, not like the cheap storage tubs at walmart. On that subject, I had a HECK of a time finding a storage tub big enough for the technodrome box, with acrylic case, inside snapped tight. Ultimately, I reluctantly bought a light blue "Sterlite" storage tub which sucks because the lids never stay snapped shut. So after I got that sucker in there I taped around the lips of the lids. It will take a lot of patience and a knife to cut that lid off now. haha

I use these ones. Mostly for the color.

Never had a problem with them. Glad you found ones that meet your needs. I hate buying these things. I suppose it's one of those little annoyances that come with collecting.

Yeah I hate the middle humps on those! Wasted space! I agree. Buying storage tubs are not fun. Bulky, annoying, take up space in the car and cart.

Thumbs up Red Thermos Lunch Box with Shredder Unmasked!

Spoiler:






[IMG]javascript:popupWindow('http://www.kaptainmyke.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=popup_image_additional&pID=794 &pic=13&products_image_large_additional=images%2Fp ersonal%2F1993tmntthermoslunchboxredshredderunmask ed_014.JPG')[/IMG]


1993 TMNT
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Red Thermos Brand Plastic Lunch Box
Art by Chris Allan, artist on the "TMNT Adventures" comic book published by Archie Comics for many years.

A United States USA made red plastic lunch box released by Thermos back in 1993. Complete with Thermos

Unusual: Thermos DOES NOT have "Roughneck" printed on it.
Very Unusual: Shredder is unmasked! Full facial features of Oroku Saki on sticker art.


"It's very weird Shredder doesn't have a mask - it may be an image taken from the comics, so there's probably a reason why, but I don't know what it is." - Dan Berger, Mirage Studios


Signed by Peter Laird with COA from Mirage Studios Archives.

I wish you both lived closer, i have those plastic totes from walmart that are actually flat, i prob have 5 empty ones i wish i could sell or return for a store credit. I also cataloged /inventoried my collect by what was in each bin and boy does it really help.

I did learn two yrs ago its actually way easier to store (and cheaper) to use homedepot moving boxes. Obviously they should be off the ground to protect against water, but they are excellent for stacking bubble wrapped misb items or moc figures. Who knew!

2016-2017 NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1/4 SCALE REPLICA from the 1990 JIM HENSON FILMS
DONATELLO

Comes with:
-extra pairs of hands, open, clutched, and thumbs up
-a slice of pizza
-a cannister of TGRI ooze
-bo staff
-cloth bandanna
-cloth ribbon ties for bo staff on shell
-removable wrist straps for changing hands
-inflated ego

I purchased 2 only because one source was taking over 2 months on pre-order when I bought another one directly from NECA's ebay store. This one was opened to enjoy its immaculate detail and photorealistic likeness of the movies. NECA manufactured these quarter scale replicas to every single detail from the motion pictures. I am truly amazed at the quality and scale of effort put forth into making these toys for mass production. This is hands down the most detailed and high quality action figure I've ever seen in my entire life. Buy one if you ever have the chance!

Authentic 100% NECA North American Release, not an unlicensed imitation bootleg.

Very hard to obtain and purchase only when NECA does limited releases on their ebay store page. You can pre-order these figures from various online retail outlets but there is no guarantee you will get one in a timely manner.

I rarely seek bootleg figures or desire unauthorized toys. When you see a toy figure of this caliber and detail, you cannot resist!

This is a one-of-a-kind custom Netherlands release of a 2016 NECA SHREDDER complete inside custom high quality printed cardstock packaging.

The figure was made by custom toy builder / sculptor Alvin Silvrants from the Netherlands. I would recommend his quality and highly detailed craftsmanship to anyone I know. I am proud to add this figure to my legendary TMNT Collection. Thank you, Alvin!
Thanks Mike! Kind words and compliments bro! Hope to make a lot more customs for you!
