Our family is getting ready to sell our house and move closer to our business here in Denver within the next few months, so I'm starting to pack up the toys and it occured to me that I haven't posted pics of "The Room" anywhere in a long while, so...

(Please bear with some of the pre-packing mess)

Top Shelf - Super Powers, JLU, Alex Ross Justice, various DC statues & figures
Middle Shelf - DC Direct
Bottom Shelf - Marvel Legends

Image

Wide shot of the room; in the corner - DC Direct First Appearance, JLU 10" figures, various crap, G.I.Joe USS Flagg deck stacked up behind the M.A.S.K. shelf

Image

Top Shelf - Hellboy movie & comic series figures
Middle Shelf 1 - SOTA Street Fighter
Middle Shelf 2 - Mattel MOTU figures & stactions
Bottom Shelf - G.I.Joe Defiant

Image

The Joe Wall - the first two shelves are the vintage and new Joe figures; most of the vehicles are packed away due to space limitations but many of my favorites are on display. This is the setup that makes my wife's friends question our marriage.

Image

The Joe Case - many of my MOC Joes are in there or on the wall. As you can see, I'm a huge fan of the original figures' card artwork. My Terror Drome is buried in the closet, along with my dignity.

Image

Finally, in the Creative Corner is my cluttered work desk, surrounded by many Heroclix and Figure Factory. On the right is my fav cover artwork, Justice League of merica #21, I created it using enlarged color copies all glued together. It's neat. Above the desk is my Perez Avengers poster, the version that was signed and printed on parchment paper. An ex-girlfriend had it really nicely matted and framed a long while back. Best thing I remember about the relationship.

Image

So there it is. Hope you guys like it. I'm a bit bummed, because our new house will have an unfinished basement, and we financially won't be able to finish it for a long while so I won't have a place to set all this back up. The "dolls" will have to stay packed away for quite some time. But at least I'm blessed enough to have all this! :wink:

VERY VERY nice!!!! Wow! I am very impressed.

Take heart about the move, my collection stayed in a few boxes for years until this last summer when we (my wife, son and I) finally moved into a house big enough for displaying the collection. Some things are worth waiting for!

I particularily like your recessed shelves, seems like a great way to save floor space. Did you have any built-in overhead lighting in those?

Nice display, it's hard being a card art nut and still have room for everything, I like what you did.

WOW!

:shock:

What a fabulous collection - I am amazed at your "stuff" and how neatly you have it displayed.

Hope the move goes fine and you get everything in it's place in a reasonable time.

:wink:

Awesome pics, Ryan! I'm amazed and impressed by your collection!

>>On the right is my fav cover artwork, Justice League of America #21, I created it using enlarged color copies all glued together.<<

Heh. That's one of my all time favorites, as well. That one, and the All Star Comics cover that inspired it:

Those are two very powerful, iconic images.

bumped up for the chat guys who missed it before. :wink:

Unfortunately, we are in the process of moving and ALL of this is in storage. "The Room" is currently empty. :cry:

Hey SDcomics,

How did you do / where did you find that Avengers / JLA cover? It's very cool but definitely not Avengers #47.

The art appeared in the JLA/Avengers limited series.
