Hey Darth,

To answer your question, I am 38 years old! I have been collecting figures since the first releases of the 3-3/4 inch GI JOES came out. I have collected so many other lines, and sold them all, but I ALWAYS kept my Turtles... right up to this day. It is just a totally fun hobby. I have all my figures out of the package. Just took out Buzzrok and Multiflex out of the packages this morning. I have made wooden stands for EVERY ONE of my 500+ figures... that's how much fun this is for me. I will post a pic some time. Thanks for the reply... Good to talk with other collectors! I love this site.


Pentoolart, how old are you? It's always nice to see that there are older people into TMNT. I have a feeling our mutual friend in the UK will be sending me a box soon with Buzzrok and Multiflex in it. I told him I wanted two of each. Yesterday I got two Secret Agent Donatello figures from him.[/QUOTE]

I agree with you on this one, I wish they'd make some more mutations.

just curious, what is everyone using to attatch and hang their carded figs on the wall, is was thinking about using the stronger thumb tacs but i'm still not sure if they will be strong enough...any suggestions?

Regular office thumb tacs have always worked fine for me

Well, I don't know if you consider this the same thing, but I use push pins. I guess it depends on the walls you have, but i have bad experiences with thumb tacs. They always end up getting bent.

Damn, Mattman! I am indeed envious of your collection. It must have taken you quite a bit of time and dinero to amass that amount of figures!

Long term, it is a bad idea to hang figures on the wall using just thumb tacks, nails, etc... to hold them by the hook at the top of the card. You are going to end up with warped and damaged cards, particularly with larger/heavier figures. If you want to maintain your figures and the packaging, it is a good idea to provide additional support under them.

The figs in the pics are from the 2006 relaunch show of Biker Mice. It was only shown in the UK. Same with the Mice in my sig. You can find the show on DVD, but only Region 2.

I finally pulled me collection out and took pics

Here are the pop-ups i've managed to get:


Here is my No Stripe April with Fan Club Form:


Here are my factory sealed cases of Retromutagen/Foot Ooze and the Toxic Crusaders Toxie's Toxic Waste:


Here is my namesake:


Here is my autographed movie III April Paige Turco signed it "April O'Neil Cowabunga Paige Turco" what a sweetie:


Here are all 13 of my figures the Rocksteady and Rat King are just the basic versions, I refuse to buy more than one of each figure (besides April) and they were pulled from cases so I don't have the heart to replace them with the pop-up versions:


I keep my figures in a well ventilated toy cabinet as we are selling our home and i'm getting a toy room soon but here is the Party Wagon in the cabinet:



And finally here is my most prized possession, my Blank figure from Dick Tracy that I pawned my car title to get lol:


I hope you enjoy the pics!
