Saturday Shelf Porn!

Hello and welcome to the long-running-but-recently-moved Shelf Porn, now on Saturdays to help make your weekend more super. Today’s Super Shelf Porn comes from Jason George, who shares his collection of items featuring the Man of Steel — he’s got statues, toys and even a guitar.

If you’d like to share your collection with the world, please email a write-up and pictures to jkparkin@yahoo.com. We’re always looking for collections large or small, even if it’s just a picture or two … I’ve got a couple of single pictures I’ll group together into one post when I get a few more in. So send’em today!

And now here’s Jason …

*****

I have been a fan of your articles for a while now and always enjoy seeing other collections. I have a fairly large superman collection that we have always called the superman room in our house. My wife is due in four months and I will be boxing the collection in order to make room for the baby. But before I started putting it away, I decided to take pictures of my superman stuff and send them along to you.

I have been a superman fan since 1978 for the same reason like most fans. The movie just blew me away. I had the toys and stuff like that as a kid, but “my collection” really started taking of around 1990 when I started making some money I guess. I have collected comics and have over 14,000 DC titles and I believe I have every DCU title and comic since 1980. This in turn started my collecting of superman items.

My favorite parts of the collection are the statues and the watches. I have over 150 superman watches. Over 15 clocks. I also like the four WETA statues that I have although I am afraid to move them because they are so big, heavy and fragile. If I did this all over again the only thing I would change is buying every single superman and superman villain action figure, they take up a lot of space. I have boxes of them in the attic not on display. Another piece that I like is the life size bust I have of Brandon Routh, I wanted to get the full size statue but didn’t have the room. I won the superman guitar at a six flags park. I have a part of the room dedicated to just any movie, cartoon or TV show DVD and put them on in my superman DVD player TV. The room itself is yellow with red shelves. The ceiling is blue and has a fan in that has the planet earth. The blades have superman flying around it. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks, Jason George

That looks expensive….

wtf?

I am speechless.

OCD is a terrible affliction.

love the devotion to the man of steel. though like every collection bet the thing is a pain when it comes time to dust. and also now to move for the little new addition on the way

This may just be in the first time I’ve ever been in awe of Shelf Porn. It’s always been impressive, but…holy hell, that’s a lot of Superman stuff.

so your a batman fan?

Great Caesar’s Ghost!!!
That’s quite a splendid display!

You know what is flippin’ amazing about this? He wrote that he has every DC comic since 1980, yet there is not one picture in the midst of these amazing pics of a comic. There must also be a comic room in his house too!

Super!

That’s one expensive collection, but I really like how most of the toys are open and out of the case, rather than just suffocated away in the plastic. Makes up for the collection of Smallville dvds on the one shelf. :)

Pfft, my kryptonite room would *own* your Superman room.

That’s a LOT of Superman.

The Batman clock feels oddly out of place though.

This room makes me happy. I just want to sit in the middle of it and enjoy the superness.

Great Rao! Jason George obviously has the power of super-collecting. Also, does anybody know who drew the cardboard cutout of Superman hanging surrounded by plates in the header picture? Because that is one of the best drawings of Superman that I’ve ever seen.

The “boxes of them in the attic not on display” just slays me!

The sheer go-for-broke commitment of this is really cool.

LOL he’s got all the Superman DVD’s but no sign of the Ultimate Superman Collection box tin set?

Yeah, he’s missing one. :-)

Wow. Just… as a fellow Superman fan, my hat is off. That is impressive.

Super awesome!!

Has Jerry Seinfeld made an offer yet? ;)

Awesome, awesome, awesome! :)

Jumpin’ Jesus on a pogo stick! That is nothing shoet of spectacular! And I’m not even a big fan of Superman! Well done! But count on a kid to throw a wrench in the works.

I wonder if that entire room of stuff comes close to the value of a single issue of Action Comics #1

I have to admit, I’m a little envious. Although the DVD shelf looks pretty familiar :). Anyone know what the “In a Single Bound” DVD is?

That is an impressive collection indeed

Excellent! I love the yellow wall and how it makes all the blue and red pop. Looks like one big comic book.

I am a LOT envious! And yeah, have priorities…build another room for that baby. Don’t disturb this!

Has the Superman Museum seen this? Maybe you guys need to merge.

Wow!! I am in awe… What an INCREDIBLE collection!! We could never be friends, because I’d totally steal your stuff… LOL!! :) :)

I can’t believe you’re turning your Fortress of Solitude into a baby nursery, though… Come on, man, you have to have better priorities! :-D You could make a rocket-ship crib and stick junior in the room with the Superman stuff! It’ll be a couple years before he/she can start wreaking havoc on your collection, so you’ve still got time. :)

AMAZING! that’s what i’m striving for with Batman. this is incredible.

Holy crap, that’s impressive! I want one of the Supes cardboard standees, never saw that one before.

I’m going to show this to my wife and say “see? Don’t think my one display case is so bad now, huh?”

I wonder if he is going to name his baby Clark?

HOLY UNDERWEAR BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a superman action record from 1951….bought it myself…Bet you dont have it ! Am willing to sell it…

Fun to look !
Glad to se a few Supergirl(Superwoman?) in there too,,,

Great Caesars Ghost! My wife would have had me living in the street if I tried to do that…and you are right Matt the Batman clock and action figures stick out like a sore thumb.

Is that a framed action comics #1 on the wall?! How was that not the focus of this article?

To Imitorar – looks like maybe Dan Jurgens or maybe some Jose Garcia Lopez thrown in there. I’m no expert though.

That is one Super Fantastic Collection!!!!! I am impressed!!!!! I wish it were Mine! Ha,Ha,Ha,You know that is a Great Idea Robert j.Wilson had.Why not make a Rocket Shaped Crib for your Baby! Thats a Fantastic Idea!!!And That would also be another Great Idea That Carolyn had to name your Child after Superman if it is a Boy.You could Call him Clark or you can name him after his Krypton name Kal-El.You could name him:Clark Kent KAl-El George.Now if it is as Girl you could name her after Supergirl.Wow!!! That is the Most Awesome Superman Collection I have ever seen!!!!! It is Fantastic!!!!!!

I Love the Superman Guitar it is fantastic!!!!!

I know what most of you are thinking. “Box the baby”… Just kidding. This is awesome.

I would like to purchase some of your items please contact me at craigm623 on aol.com

I think I have one that you don’t…wait. Oh, nevermind, there it is on that shelf. I’m jealous.

That’s an amazing collection… I must be a baby then, i just have the justice league and smallville dvd and justice, mugs, and the 30″ mattel superman… it’s a long way for me then.lol. i love your collection.

wow….amazing!!! btw u still miss one item….Statue Christopher Reeve Superman Cinemaquette

Thanks for all the great comments.
The framed action #1 is not a comic, it’s a lithograph.
The “cardboard standee” of superman by the plates is not a standee, it’s a fathead, it sticks to the wall.
The Batman clock is actually a collectors plate, that has more plates under it that I was actualy packing up to sell.
Sorry it took so long to respond.
Thanks again.
Jason G.

Aside from the obvious WOW!, 2 other things come to mind…

“Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a Superman collection!!!!”

or referring to making room for the new baby….
“Up, Up, and Away!!!!!”

Oh My God!!!! Jawdrop!!!!

I would love to be let loose in this room… That is some collection you have there.

Beautiful collection, any chance you know who Danny Fuchs, or Jim Hanbrick are? If not, they are consecutively the first and second holders of the largest Superman collections in the world. I am a collector myself! Thank you!

Rob, no I did not know who they were. I will look for them. How would they get ranked and by who?

Awesome!

Here is a news video that ran Nationally about one of the Largest Collections in the world!
