One man’s ‘man cave’ is his wife’s ‘nerd room’
Hello and welcome to Shelf Porn, your weekly invitation into one fan’s life. Today’s collection comes from Blaine in Murfreesboro, Tennessee — a graphic designer, comic book collector and toy collector “for many years.” He shared his comics, toys, metal signs, Pez dispensers and more.
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 here is Blaine …
Here is my mancave, or, as my wife Shannon refers to it, my nerd room.
As you enter my office/mancave, I have a bookshelf with all my comic book TPBs. I mostly have Marvel Masterworks and DC Chronicles. I have all the DC ones and almost am update to date on the Marvel Masterworks. Also have a few of the Archie Archives from Dark Horse Comics. I like these books since its probably the only way I can read them all at an affordable price.
Next I have my Transformers bookcase. Most of these are from the past 10-15 years and the originals such as Devastator, Optimus Prime, Megatron, etc. in boxes are Japan Encore or Hasbro re-issues. I wasn’t too kind to my original Transformers growing up and they are not in good shape.
Next is my Pez collection. I have been collecting these since the late 1990s. Alot of these are not being released anymore like Looney Tunes and Flintstones. I have 386 Pez dispensers so far including the box set ones such as Elvis and Star Trek. I also have most of the Super-Hero ones released in the last 15 years. I am excited Pez has been releasing more of them in recent years such as Lizard and Catwoman. I am looking for the new Flash dispenser which is scheduled to come out later this year.
