As someo one who went all black I 100% agree. We're moving so I may have an opportunity for changes.

At 17 detolfs and a ton of Expedit shelving it just wasn't feasible to buy new. And now my cases are loaded and lit up so taking them down would too much of a chore. Hindsight man.


I have 21 MOTUC figures and 2 vehicles in transit.

It got out of control at the old house. I genuinely thought we'd be there for 20 years. At the new place 12 was probably ideal with the new MOTU focus. We're probably going to drag two of them upstairs for my wife to use.

Another good display case for smaller figures I like are baseball bat cases turned onto their side. They can fit 5” figures inside them pretty well. Also being that they close off they keep dust off the inside figures pretty well.

I don’t know his real name, but the host for it is a guy called Mr. Stevie who used to be the head of Hasbro’s Star Wars stuff but now runs a bunch of the other lines. He’s okay. His Instagram is more interesting than he himself is, but he’s not obnoxious.

The only thing I've ever got there were classified figs. They don't require a deep search. I love the stuff they have there (old and new) but yeah it's a drat chore looking for any of it.

Quake Collectibles is the same way but at least that's bigger.

I went to add that to the list for next time I'm in town, but it's already there! Just a bit of a shlep out.

It’s by Konatsu- that one is the first colorway and was released along with the cat Gamora. They don’t get released much unfortunately and they are Japan only items usually. :/

Toy de jeur in their new place is really nice. Still haven't made it to nakama toys yet. We're moving to the burbs in a few weeks so I'll have to check out smash and whatever else is out in that direction.

Has anyone been to the Toy Department in Ohio? I follow them on Instagram, and am going to be doing a cross country drive in a few months. I was thinking of slightly tweaking the beginning of my route so I could swing by if it's as nice and well stocked as it looks from their Instagram photos.

EDIT: Looks like a bunch of TMNT Cartoon pre-orders are going up on NECA's site.

Holy poo poo I've been thinking the same thing. Probably won't get out there anytime soon but Jesus everything on their Instagram looks insane.
