Well I finally got my collection room to where I consider it "done". It took over a year from the time we bought our house till now for me to get it to where I felt it was finished. And I'm looking at it now thinking there's room for improvement. But it's really never done. Just on pause.

Here's a few pics. TIGers will notice there isn't a Star Wars display in these pics. That display case is in the hallway and isn't done to my liking to share pics yet. That's next.

Hulk shelf and DVD collected comics editions shelf. I have other pics of the HUlk shelf taken a couple of weeks ago but can't find them right now. I'll post em when I do.

The plan is to eventually not bee able to see any of the roof slope and have it covered with comic and other pop culture images.

I've had this KISS stage set in storage for eight years. It's nice to finally have it out.

Marvel and DC shelves.

The two shelves I spent the most time on today. All items from my childhood. And not items I've bought I had when I was a kid. These are actually my old toys.

My old teddy given to me by my grandmother. The dogs are also from my grandmother. The story behind them is when we used to go visit I'd try and play with them, and my mom would have a fit. My grandmother would say it was ok but mom wouldn't let me. So one day after we visited a package came in the mail with my name on it and it was the dogs. Funny thing is the medium one has a crack in it but not from me. My mom knocked it over dusting one day. HAHA.

I've had the elephant lamp as long as I can recall. The creepy blue dog puppet has been around about as long.

Nice wok, Paul, that room's looking well cool! Good to see the embossed MOTU displays back up, the childhood die cast cars, and I like the way you draped the HULK tee and used it as part of the display cheers

Great man cave attic, Paul!! cheers cheers 

So much to be seen there. LIKE!

The childhood display is really cool. And the Kiss stage as well. What a Face

Do you want me to move this thread to the limelight section, so it get the attention which it deserves?
(Technically spoken it is a Star Wars collection limelight as I saw at least one Vader, one Powerdroid , and one R5-D4. Very Happy )

Favorite things-tabletop Pac-Man, large E.T. (what is it?), He-Man displays (pure awesome), and the fact that the yellowed childhood Leia is proudly displayed.

What a kickass display! It's so great that you were able to hold onto so many of your childhood toys. And I love the story about the dogs. :clap:
