Welcome to a different kind of Shelf Porn, as today Eric shares his home office filled with all sorts of cool movie items, masks, toys and, of course, some comics. “My philosophy on collecting has always been to surround yourself with things that speak to you and pull particular feelings out of you,” Eric said. “Whenever possible, I try to find cheaper items and improve upon them, and this has also become a fun part of the hobby.”

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

And now here’s Eric …

My name is Eric, and this is my home office. Lots of comics, toys, props, masks and other goodies. The parts of my collection that are displayed capture a segment of comics, horror, film and general warm fuzzies of nostalgia from my childhood. My philosophy on collecting has always been to surround yourself with things that speak to you and pull particular feelings out of you. Whenever possible, I try to find cheaper items and improve upon them, and this has also become a fun part of the hobby. I would venture to say that about half of my collection falls into this category.

The Cap shield is a Halloween item that I cleaned up a bit, and the WW2 helmet was a plastic Halloween army helmet that I textured and painted.

Jason’s hockey mask was store-bought at a Toys R Us, just repainted and distressed.

Boba Fett’s helmet was created from a Rubie’s Jango Fett helmet, repainted, textured and weathered.

My take on an Iron Man helmet was created using a resin War Machine paintball mask, which I repainted and weathered.

Freddy’s eyes were created using Ping-Pong balls, red thread for veins, paper print outs of pupils, and clear coat spray-paint.

Audrey 2 was made from Styrofoam and a few craft store plants.

Hope you enjoy!

I think this is one of my favorite Shelf Porn entries to date, really nicely displayed and very unique!

“Very” unique? Unique is unique, mate.

very unique espically love the audrey two . not to mention the spider man suit just like when jameson got a hold of it in spider man issue 50

This has to be one of my favourite collections too.

Just gorgeous. I’m extremely jealous of your Keaton Batsuit cowl (always wanted one of those) and applaud your collecting mentality. If the stuff around you doesn’t provoke a feeling, why would you have it? Fantastic stuff.

What a creative idea! Now it makes me rethink what memorabillia I want in my room!

Also agree that this is one of the better shelf porns. Very clean and cool

Awesome collection. I love the Spider-Man stuff and the Back To The Future section is pretty sweet. Love that Pit Bull.

ok Mad Props for the Little shop of horrors

Finally an installment of Shelf Porn that doesn’t look like someone raided the clearance isle at Toys R Us. Now if only “The Line: It is Drawn” can up it’s game.

You are quite inventive and creative. I’m astonished that most of the stuff that look like they had cost thousands of dollars was actually made by you with some ingenuity and vision. What an excellent job. You have inspired a lot of people.

Thanks for the kind words!
