Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn! Today Corey shares his “nerd cave” with us, where he houses his comics, artwork, an ungodly number of action figures and more — including a shelf that would make Squirrel Girl proud.

If you’d like to share your collection with us, you can find details at the end of this post.

Now let’s hear from Corey …


I have been a collector of comics, action figures, and associated stuff since I was a kid. At the age of 38 now, I finally have a place in my home that I can call my “Nerd Cave.” In the photos below you will see several shelves which hold the entirety of my action figure collection. I have included 3 photos of each shelf so that you can get a better look at the figures themselves. The two main shelves were completed this past year when I repainted some old shelves that were in my house. In order to control the dust which would eventually settle on the shelves, I bought some large sheets of Lexan plastic, some piano hinges, and some magnets to create swinging see-through doors.

My first childhood collection consisted of a large number of Transformers. During college I had to sell off many of these figures to pay some bills, but I managed to keep a few (they can be seen on my current Transformers shelf). Since then, I started collecting McFarlane figures which has recently evolved into collecting DC Comics New 52 figures. I have shelves dedicated to the following categories: Batman, the Muppets, DC New 52, Image comics, McFarlane’s monsters, Green Lantern, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Spawn, Transformers, and McFarlane’s Dragons. I also have various other figures on 2 other shelving units in the room (and yes, there is a shelf dedicated to squirrels – I have a little obsession with them which has evolved into 2 convention sketchbooks in which I have comic artists mash-up squirrels and their favorite hero/villain). I have also included several pictures of some of the comic art I own which hangs on my walls. The only thing that is only hinted at in the pictures is my 40 boxes of comic books which line one wall in my room and occupy the closet.

I hope everyone enjoys these pictures.

nice collection love the art work and the display shelves.

Awesome collection, alternate reality me!

Love the Muppets shelf and of course the Transformers shelf. You know you’re a serious collector when you have Wheelie.

Also, nice trombone. Do you play?

Cool Maxx figure and dragon section

Oh, that Muppet shelf…great stuff!!!

Great collection, I love the muppets. Will start looking out for those at events. I got my son an Optimus prime and he thinks it’s great. Fantastic collection, especially the muppets and transformers. I liked the green lantern corps too. The display shelves were an act of genius, and should be copied the land over!

Well that headline was misleading!
I was expecting TONS of awesome squirrels, and it’s just this one small shelf with like 9 squirrels on it.
Would love to see the squirrel sketchbooks too, should be interesting!

Other than that nitpick, great collection!

I love the frames but im don’t think the toys in general are of good taste.

Great collection!

Who are the three non-Bone figures (blue guy with green wings, red and green guy, and brown guy) on the left of the Bone shelf?

Great display. I like the shells too.

Man, what a setup! Pinky and the Brain figures?! Where’d you find them? So jealous!

Fantastic collection! Love the down-lights you’ve installed above the Lantern Corps and also that you keep as many figures as you can behind glass… really does make a difference to dusting, doesn’t it?

They made Bone action figures? I never knew that!

I love seeing every ones different collections. Now here’s a serious question.

I have yet to see anyone’s stack of long boxes. Is there not a attractive way to display these stalwarts of comic book collecting. does everyone just try to hide these out of plain sight.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I’m glad you enjoyed my collection!

Great collection, like the setup

Corey Blake – yes, I used to play trombone – haven’t plan in about 20 years, though

Iam Fear – you can see my Squirrel Sketchbooks in my photo albums on my Facebook page – Fuhrer

Jenjen4280 – those are Spawn Animated figures

Shawn – those Pinky and the Brain figures are from about 15 years ago – I have no idea where I found them at.

Thanks again everyone for the great comments!

excellent collection!
just loving those shelves with the doors on them!

Also that Kyrra Alien Jungle Girl print is awesome!!
