I nearly forgot all about them until I started cleaning stuff up a bit in the room.

Since there were four, I decided to display them as is and am keeping the 1980 in the same place. IF I did have the 1979 one with Spider-Man featured, I probably would have thought through a 6 frame set up.

Thanks for noticing...!

love the wall display Smashdaddy-looks fantastic

would love to see more of your statues and busts displayed as well


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

Thanks! My goal is to get the bed out of the room and to replace the bookshelf with a display case that currently in our living room filled with ceramic art. If I can pull that off before the end of the month, I'll be a happy camper...

I plan on displaying my GOTG set, Defenders display, Classic 70's FS groupings and my Inhumans display....

This is a 1966 Cartivision Hulk tape - made before the advent and adoption of the VCR format.

Wow, there's an obsolete collector's item classic if I ever saw one.

Thanks Wayne...! I think it's much different that hunting down a VHS tape of a Hulk video - these are more rare than one would think...but for me, just a cool collectible of the Hulk from days gone by...

1975 Marvel Comic Book Convention Attendee Bag

I got this not long ago by sheer luck on the 'bay. It's usually only sold with the entire "kit" of items given to attendees of the 1st Marvel Comicon in 1975.

I have the 1976 bag, which has GREAT artwork. This one was unobtainable until lately. I think I see a few more thrown up on the 'Bay and can be obtained at a good price. Regardless, this helped me close out at least one grail.

I placed it into another floating frame and placed under my Calendar set.

I'm not sure if it's really in the right place - so we'll see how it goes for a bit.

Also, I went ahead and put a RED background behind all of the calendars - so I think they look a lot better presentation-wise. See next pic...

I also decided to pack away Batroc on my desk and moved Strong Guy up top with the other hero busts.

I was slightly worried about the overall weight but I'm confident now that it will not fall.

I like the fact that I can sit back in my home office chair and start at these with pride.

Nice! I'm considering doing that with my villain busts, using that type of shelf.

I take it you don't want/need any other characters do you?

I wish I could find that type of shelf again. It's an old one that we've had for years and I can't seem to find them anymore. The ones that are out now don't have a ledge "lip" - it's all smooth shelves. I'm probably not looking enough.

And my character want list is as long a Mr. Fantastic's arm dunking a basketball from half-court....!

Believe it or not, yes - there is...! What can't be seen from the photo is that there's a raised edge on the front end - so if you scooted the MB's forward they would be stopped by that ledge and couldn't go any further.

I keep looking for similar shelves but I can find them. This particular shelf is several years old, so we can't even remember where it came from in the first place. So...the search continues.

However, Bezzerkker posted some photos of some heavy duty flat shelves that I really like that I am considering for full size statues if I can't get a display case that I have in mind.

Ha! I wish - but the "other" side of the room is like a war zone except for what's on the wall. Someday....thanks for asking though

Home Decorators (an online division of Home Depot) has quite a few of those "floating shelves" available in various lengths, Ken.
I've bought a few things from them (including my curio cabinet) and have been very satisfied with their quality and service:

1941 Captain America Sentinels of Liberty Badge 1st Issue

So, I'm pretty excited about this one...it's my most recent acquisition, and totally by SHEER LUCK....

This is the 1st issue of Captain America's Sentinels of Liberty Badge issued in 1941 through Timely Comics. Timely, as many of you are aware, was the precursor publishing company that ran from 1939 through 1950, before eventually becoming Marvel Comics.

Anyway - one was able to send in a dime to get a membership kit that included this badge.

What I like about this is that, I think, it's the earliest Captain America collectible. My previous "Earliest" collectible was the 1966 Lakeland Captain America bendy figure which I have in a shadow box. This one blows that one away....

Here's the size comparison...


1941 Timely Comics Captain America Badge - 1st Issue

It's a little dirty, but all the edges are SHARP, and all of the coloring is there...I plan on cleaning it up and then getting it into a special shadow box for formal display. And insured...oy.

That is awesome SD. Really cool to see some older and different collectables. Seems luck has been with you on finding some great items.

Well, you know what they say about cleaning or polishing old metal collectables.
It instantly devalues them....by a LOT.
I would probably just pick up one of the 1990 Planet Studios re-issues of that badge and display them side-by-side.

Fun Fact: the first issue badge (of 3) is the only one that is not magnetic.

D'oh! I did not know that - thanks for telling me...! So, I'll leave it "as-is"....I!

And yes! I did the magnetic test after I did more research on it. Felt even more lucky when I figured out it was the 1st issue.

As far as the Planet Studio's replic pin...GREAT IDEA!
