If it’s Saturday, it’s time for Shelf Porn — our weekly look at one collector’s pride and joy. Today’s collection of action figures, comics and lots more comes from Ryan in Toronto.

If you’d like to see your collection here on Robot 6, you can find submission details at the end of this post.

And now let’s hear from Ryan!

*****

A few years back, I made the move to a condo in downtown Toronto. As you could imagine, one of the major concerns that I had as a comic collector was the space. We found a place that we fell in love with and couldn’t pass it by but we knew we would both have to make a few sacrifices. For myself, I used to have nearly 3 full bookcases full of just toys, plus several long boxes of comics, plus all my graphic novels, and then some. Deciding which items to cut from your collection is a lot like deciding which limbs to cut off, I *NEED* all of these! One idea that my girlfriend came up with was to focus on just one collection, namely the Eaglemoss lead figurine collection. This way I could aim to collect the entire line and it would take up minimal space. So I sold off the rest of my collection and haven’t looked back since.

I mainly focused on the Marvel classic figurine line, but I had a dedicated shelf for Batman figures as well.

In the other room I kept many runs of my comics and a good amount of graphic novels that I just couldn’t part with.

Frank Miller’s 300 has always been near and dear to me, those shields are SDCC exclusive to anyone who purchased the DVD special edition when it first came out. Naturally I had to get 2, one for each special edition.

I’m also a huge Battlestar Galactica fan, mainly collecting the titanium die cast series, but they are incredibly hard to find.

Anyway, that about sums up my collection, I hope you enjoy!

Ah, the CMFC. Used to get that. A great collection.

What are the disc/shields from “300”?

Sorry, read comments after looking at photos, which I realise was pretty dumb. I’ll try not do that in future.

You should see my collection..

Great collection. Even though the display case is packed, it doesn’t look over crowded. Nice job.

what’s with the “action figures” headline? not quite the same thing as lead figurines, are they?

Nice collection. You display everything really well. Bravo!

You had a really hard choice to make and, for what it’s worth, I think the Eaglemoss collection was the right choice. The figurines look absolutely stunning together (thanks, in no small part, to the way you’ve chosen to arrange them… they really pop, and evoke all sorts of storylines in my head as I look through them). I’ve always wondered what a complete Eaglemoss set would look like; the answer is “just glorious”.

Nice collection, definitely. But what’s with the room itself? Looks like it could use some love.

So the author didn’t know that those are not action figures? Seems like a fireable offense.

To be fair, there are a few action figures mixed in there.

Very Nice . would love to have a iron man bust like that .

Thanks all for the comments on my collection. And yes I agree, lead figures are not ‘action’ figures but I’m not going to hold that against the author for posting that. It’s a pleasure to be a part and have my collection shared.

I teleported bread for 3 days.

lol love the tf2 stuff.

Where did you get the Ms. Marvel, and scarlet witch figures. I need them!!!!!!!!
