Show off Your Nerdy Collections!

Post by raerae on Tue Jul 07, 2015 7:47 pm

My SO and I collect anime stuff, mostly. And movie posters. It's impossible to photograph everything in one shot, but here's (some of) the CLAMP portion of my collection:

I love your CLAMP collection, raerae! Is that the plastic hollow-book Clow Card container with the full deck inside?! I loved mine so much! I remember thinking that the illustrations looked just like the manga, which was really cool. CLAMP is my heart. ;w; <3

Most of my nerdy collection is still in storage on the East Coast because moving cross-country is hard: the aforementioned Clow deck, a few original issues of V for Vendetta, most of TokyoPop's Sailor Moon run, misc. CLAMP & Yu Watase & other manga (including that run of Clover with the fancy transparent slipcovers, ooo~), old video game systems (Sega Genesis, orig Game Boy, GB Color, GB Advance, N64, Game Cube)+ a bunch of cartridges for 'em, & a bunch of Old Hollywood movie posters. And misc. manga/anime plushies because I'll never not be super psyched about stuffed things. (I'm a grown woman who bought herself a red panda stuffed animal for Christmas hi nice to meet you!)

Here's some bad phone photos of the things that made it with me:

An old Casablanca poster & some stamps with Grace Kelly's & Jimmy Stewart's faces on them! Also, a sugar skull with a radical moustache. Also also, that bit of glasses case on the left is from one of my pairs of glasses. They are Laura Roslin's glasses (not, like, the actual glasses; just the same style) because I'm kind of a goober and she is the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]?

My tiny Criterion collection! One day, it will be massive and have an entire bookshelf of its very own.

Not pictured: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] because I haven't framed it yet, plus a jacket with a Night Vale Eternal Scout patch on one shoulder and a shiny BSG patch on the other. Also, that Her Universe Stark Industries bomber jacket. I AM REALLY COOL. cyclops

@aesta It is! I'm actually considering getting the super fancy re-release Clow deck. Before the re-release, the old one of that type was going for $300-$500 so well beyond my range.

And omg, you have the Suu Clamp in Wonderland. It's adorable. <3

If I remember tomorrow, I'll post my Eva collection. Expect lots of Kaworu.

Well, Ciella's house looks like fun.  Out of curiosity, have you played Smash Up?  I might have missed it, but I didn't see it in that huge, awesome collection.

As for my own collection, I have a couple small collections for various things.  For media I tend to go for highly recommended things; my game collection is small but made up mostly of highly rated or cult classic games.  Case in point, I've got the Sega Saturn almost exclusively for NiGHTS: Into Dreams and the Sega Dreamcast almost exclusively for Jet Grind Radio (though Darkstalkers, Sonic Adventure, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 certainly help).

Here's my system collection, all in a handy little Ikea BITRÄDE.

(And yeah, that is a Sara Lance Black Canary Funko Pop.)

Here's my game collection:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
My shelf is an old, dead computer that I gutted, added a shelf to the inside of, and mounted on the wall.

And probably the crown jewel of what I've got, my Animal Crossing Pineapple Bed that I had to make myself because Nintendo and Ikea haven't teamed up yet to make the world's greatest possible furniture.

Ciella, that board game collection is so impressive! *o* I need more board game friends. I miss playin' board games.

!!!!!!!!!
PINEAPPLE BED

Also really dig that Creature from the Black Lagoon poster, but I'm prettyyyy sure Pineapple Bed wins this thread in perpetuity.

I haven't got pictures of most of my stuff, although I collect a lot of things kind of randomly (I'm not really a completionist on collecting, mostly.) I need better storage systems, mostly - the bulk of my My Little Pony collection is all bagged up and in the spare wardrobe from when we moved, because I haven't got shelves for them all.

Apart from ponies, I mostly collect plush (bears, dragons, dinosaurs, sharks, Star Wars characters, Minions - sorry, I know a lot of people hate them but I love their childlike enthusiasm), Stitch, cartoon characters, Blue Nose Friends, etc) and Animaniacs stuff (got plush again, of course, various kinds of figures, t-shirts, cards, bags...someday I'll get production cels if there still are any good ones around, they're just out of my budget at the moment.)

Here's most of my Pokemon plush (got a couple more since then, Vanillite Pokedoll and a little Lilligant and I think maybe one more Teddiursa):

And here's most of my figure/charm/other stuff collection:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here are my WoW plushies (characters made by the brilliant Threnodi) - the murloc babies have since adopted my Elder Scrolls guar into their fold:

Here's Captain Abearica aka Steve Pawgers:

Here's my little Jawa family:

And here is my current desktop crew (Tauriel had to go live with the other LOTR figures when I got my new PC):

Tried to get a photo of most of our Legos but it came out really badly beccause it's in a dimmer part of the room, I think. Anyway this is probably enough already.  Embarassed

They are buried in the attic at the moment, but I have a decent Hallmark collection of Star Wars ornaments.

Threepio, Artoo, Three Ewoks, Princess Leia(New Hope), Vader and Anakin(Phantom Menace), Old Ben Kenobi, and an X-Wing. And a Green M&M ornament wearing Leia's white robes and a lightsaber, because why the hell not?

I've got a pretty epic nerdy shirt collection. I've actually toyed with the idea of starting a blog to catalog/showcase them all, but here's a small sampling:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
(left to right, top to bottom: Cthulhu/Coca-Cola logo mashup, Mythbusters/wheelchair stunts, diagram of a nerd's brain, Portal rat maze with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on the back, Lego Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Ravenclaw bronze eagle cartoon, Abbey Road/Star Wars cantina band mashup, comic book speech bubbles)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
(left to right, top to bottom: Official Token Cripple shirt I try to wear whenever I'm in a group photo, 42 made up of references from the Hitchhiker's Guide novels, Kid Omega "Magneto Was Right" costume, Lembas/Wonder Bread logo mashup--you can't see it in the pic but the yellow circle sports the Ring inscription, Big Bang Theory/House M.D. logo mashup, Marvel supervillains helmets, TARDIS and DeLorean crash, and my newest addition that combines my love of '60s Star Trek, costume shirts, wheelchairs, and obscure references that very few people will get--Christopher Pike's wheelchair costume. It's like it was made especially for me!)



Oh, and just to make Kris jealous...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Snatched it up during the prop auction after the series finale. Even though it was one of the cheapest lots they had, it still cost a stupid amount of money--but I couldn't pass up the chance to own my favorite artifact from one of my favorite shows of all time!

Ohhhhh that's awesome! I coveted so much stuff from those auctions but they were so expensive (and Claudia wears a slightly bigger shoe size than me.)

Wow, seriously? You've gotta post pictures of that!

But yes, that's "all" I got. It's all I could afford! Stuff as simple as a pair of purple gloves went for two or three times what I paid! I don't even want to think how much an iconic piece like HG's grapple gun went for. You are seriously dedicated to your ships.

But I'm being perfectly honest when I say the Oye Como Va studio master was my favorite artifact ever. Only WH13 would have had the magical plotfixing device for an episode be something so silly and random instead of a bunch of incomprehensible technobabble like you'd have on TNG. Plus that episode was the one of the first ones my mother watched with me while I was recovering from a surgery, which lead to her joining me in Warehouse fandom.

Thank you. That seriously made my day.

And now, in an attempt to get this thread back on track, here's a pic of my vinyl figure bobbleheads and keychains (Pop!, Mez-itz, and Titans) and those fancy Barnes and Noble leatherbound classics:

And extra-special, the books I got signed by Stan Lee when he was at my local Comic Con. I first got into comics when I found Marvel Masterworks: Amazing Spider-Man (a collection of the first eleven Spidey comics) at the public library, so when I got the chance to meet The Man himself I knew I had to have him sign a copy of that book and my replica of Amazing Fantasy #15 that came with the 2002 Spider-Man DVD collector's gift set:

Yup, don't give a dang. I got to meet my hero and have him sign his books that had a huge impact on my life. Even if they were worth something their sentimental value is what I care about. Smile

Kinoumenthe, Aesta & Katherinethegrape, We just moved to Quakertown, PA, so if you're in the area, you're more than welcome to head on over! It wouldn't be the first time we had game night with strangers on the internet (Yahoo! Groups).

Harrison Grey, we do have Smash Up! It's not my favorite, to be honest, but it's a fun light game.
