A small but growing collection from Kentucky

If you’d like to see your collection featured here on Robot 6, here’s what you need to do:

1. Take some photos and save them as jpgs.
2. Write up a little something about your collection.
3. Send them to me in an email.

Some additional tips:

1. Although we don’t have a minimum or maximum limit on photos, usually 10-15 should suffice. They also don’t need to be huge, so if you can shrink them down so they are less than 1000 x 1000, that would be great. Please send your files in one email … if you have to break them up into multiple emails, something is wrong. Either change the settings on your camera, edit your images before sending them or upload them to someplace like DropBox (see below).
2. You can help make your collection look nice by being sure to focus, use the right lighting, dust your shelves beforehand, etc. Beware of glare off of glass or comic bags!
3. You can either write something up that’ll appear at the beginning of the post, or you can describe each item. Be sure to indicate where each image should be placed within your write-up, but don’t embed the images into a Word doc. Just put the file name in brackets where you want the image to appear. Also, please don’t write your submission as if you’re talking to me — it’ll appear on the site as is, so write it for the general Robot 6 audience.
4. When sending images using something like YouSendIt or DropBox, please keep in mind that I may not get to your submission for a month or more, so make sure you don’t delete them or that they won’t expire. My DropBox account is the same as my email — jkparkin@yahoo.com.
5. Please include your name (just your first name is fine) and location with your write-up.
6. There’s no need to send an inquiry about whether or not we want to feature your collection; that’ll just slow the process down. Send your full submission, and if I have any questions or issues I’ll get back to you. Right now we have a backlog of submissions, so if you don’t see your collection right away, don’t despair — it’s coming.

That’s a nice collection you’ve started. I think it’s great that you’ve got stuff to share with your son. And kudos for the Aquaman figures — poor guy never gets enough respect!

Crack open those figures!

cool start to no doubt be a bigger one later in life but also knowing you will pass it on to the next generation to enjoy when he is old enough

A wonderful start – and as a result, a super modern-looking collection. All the new(ish) stuff looks really, really nice together. I wish you thousands of hours of geeky fun with your son – my daughter and I collect together and it’s one of the greatest parenting experiences a fan can have.

Like John said, crack open the figures. Let your son play with them: he’ll enjoy them more and learn more. It’s also more likely to lead to him being a fan. Things in packaging is for adults, not for kids. They have the imagination to make more of them than we ever could.

Every collection has to start somewhere. Welcome to this extremely fun and satisfying hobby, Trevor. It looks great. My wife and I just had our first child two months ago and I’m doing the same thing for him.

As a side note, I noticed you have a lot of assorted DC books for him. If you’re looking for some Marvel children’s stories as well, I highly recommend the 5-Minute Marvel Stories book. You can pick it up from Amazon for $10. They are some really good introductory stories for a kid to become familiar with some of the more popular Marvel characters. Because, well, after all, you need to keep the kid well-rounded, right? :)

Great collection again. Keep going!

Trevor, what part of Kentucky are you from?

Nice start on your collection. As a soon to be dad it is awesome to see your enthusiasm with sharing comics. I hope to do that myself when my son is born. Also every week so many people are truly positive and encouraging to everyone it is a welcome change to most comment sections.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I was so excited to see that my submission was published today. Devin, I am in the southeast portion of the state. Not too far from the TN border.

Nice! Mine is also pretty small and It makes me happy that I am not the only one. i HAVE the same Aquaman Unlimited figure, just unpacked.

Love the kids books. Some day I gotta get my collection up on here. Everything will need a good dusting though, and all my marvel legends are in a giant toy box unorganized… Oh well maybe next month.

@Trevor, cool man. I live on the opposite end if the state in western Ky. Right up by Indiana.

Every collection starts somewhere. Very nice.

Just restarting mine also…left the large quantity elsewhere in safe hands. So far a few fill in floppies and ongoing + 3 TPB.
