gotg-mockup-tease

Fans who remember checking the pegs at Target for the latest releases in Kenner’s Star Wars action figure line can appreciate this: Eddie Utrata shares a mock-up of what a Guardians of the Galaxy action figure might have looked like in the 1980s, specifically the back of the card that holds the figure (which, if I’m being honest, was always my favorite part of browsing for action figures — looking at the back of the card to see what I was missing).

The box caught the attention of James Gunn, director of the big Guardians movie due in August:

Living in Northern California I can relate to the “I need more space” dilemma. When comic and video game creator Harold Sipe moved from Brooklyn to North Carolina, he found himself with a lot more room to display his collection. In today’s edition of Shelf Porn, Harold shares his collection of comics, action figures and more, with a heavy dose of Star Trek, Star Wars and spinner racks.

If you’d like to share your collection here on Robot 6, you can find details on how to do that at the end of the post.

Stand up and salute this Captain America collection

DSC03222

After buying his first Captain America figure, Chris Raimo was hooked — and today the illustrator shares his love of Captain America with us.

“This is what I have dubbed ‘The Cap Museum,’ which resides in my home office,” he said. “I have collected anything and everything Captain America since my first 90′s ToyBiz 10″ Cap figure. Since then I have tried to get anything I can with the Super Soldier on it, from socks to jack in the boxes to toothbrushes. My favorite thing to collect by far is action figures, and my favorite item is The First Avenger figure from Hot Toys. I’m still actively collecting and hoping to one day attain a Mego Captain America in package.”

Check out his pictures after the jump, and if you’re interested in submitting your images you can find details on how to do that at the bottom of the post.

Check out his collection of action figures — Power Rangers, Doctor Who, DC Comics, Avengers and more — below.
