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 vol 1 #3 NYCC "Laird's Photo" variant CGC 8.5


Original page from TMNT/Creed


A page from TMNT Adventures. A gift from Ryan Brown

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




Laird Donatello print, 1993:


Here's an odd thing..a magazine clipping which I cut out of a magazine in 1988

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


Leo and Black Cat 11x17 print by Michael Dooney with a sketch


Some 11x17 prints from a recent convention, not sure who the artist is but they are signed by him/her

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)...

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.

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:


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:
