To show off their line of Marvel figures at the San Diego Comic Con this year, Hasbro went all out and create a huge “fight scene” diorama featuring Marvel characters of all shapes and sizes — including a few custom figures built specifically for the display. Justin Aclin, who does PR for Hasbro as his day job (by night — or, actually, by morning commute — he writes Star Wars and SHOOT First comics for Dark Horse), gave me a tour of the booth and told me that it took them five hours to put the display together.
Check out some shots of it, along with some of their other action figures, below.
Hello and welcome once again to Shelf Porn, our weekly peek at someone’s collection. Today we visit the home and shelves of Matt Page, who runs the Galactus website whencallsgalactus.com. It includes comics, original art, action figures and, oh yes, lots of Galactus.

Hello and welcome once again to Shelf Porn, our weekly look at someone’s collection. Today’s shelves come from Phil in Ontario, who shows us his growing collection of comics, action figures and more. Check them out below.
I’ve noted in the past that Shelf Porn isn’t a competition — it’s a celebration of the diversity of collections from fans all over the world. Well, today we’re going to push that philosophy to the side for a good old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out Shelf Porn Face-off! Two collections enter, but only one can leave the champion.
It started when I received an email from Tommy Baldwin, who said that he and his friend Shawn Hoklas wanted us to help settle the question “Who has the better room/collection?” I suggested we put it out to our readers to help decide. So, I’ve posted both sets of pictures today, and I’ve set up a poll so that you can vote for the room you think is better. If you aren’t sure how to decide, you can use the same criteria they use on Chopped — creativity, presentation and taste.
You can view Tommy’s collection below, then jump over to page two to take a look at Shawn’s. Finally, on page three, you’ll find a poll so you can vote for your choice. I’ll leave it open for a week, and then next Saturday we’ll declare a winner. Update: And we have a winner! Click over to the poll page to see who won.
Special thanks to Tommy and Shawn for sharing their collections with us. Now check them out!
The only thing better than one Deadpool is six Deadpools, right? (Hey, I could be a Marvel editor!) And the only thing better than six Deadpools? Tacos. This summer attendees at Comic-Con International in San Diego will have the chance to buy the Deadpool Corps. wrapped in a taco-truck package at the Hasbro booth.
Marvel.com reports that the 3.75-inch Marvel Universe figures of Deadpool, Lady Deadpool and Champion of the Universe Deadpool will come with figurines of Kidpool, Dogpool and Squirrelpool, packaged in individual “taco shells” and stuffed inside a taco truck. After the con, a limited number will be available for sale at the online Hasbro toy shop.
Check out the packaging below.

If it’s Saturday, it must be time for Shelf Porn! Today’s shelves come from Kris in Bangor, Maine, who shares his shelves filled with graphic novels, action figures and more. On one shelf he has his DC figures, and on the shelf next to it are his Marvel figures, separated only by a small gap. If they ever decided to cross that gap … madness! (I watched Toy Story 2 last night with my son, so I can only imagine what those figures are getting up to at night).
If you’d like to submit your collection, find out how to do that by going here.
And now let’s hear from Kris …

In December we featured the collection of Fran from Lausanne, Switzerland for the second time, and you’d think that after two rounds of Shelf Porn he would be done. But not so! Today we’re posting pictures of the collection of Fran’s friend Daniel, who had his arm twisted by Fran to submit to the feature. Keep it up, Fran — we could always use more Shelf Porn!
