Default Space Cop's Fortress of Solitude

Okay, so after posting numerous samples of my collection in "last purchase" thread, I received a few requests to start my own thread here. A few explanations: first off, the title comes from what I call my den, but I won't be posting pix of that (which actually contains the bulk of my "show" pieces) until after I clean it again this week [as corny as it sounds, everyone gets why I call it the FoS when they've been there]. Secondly, unlike some of you, my collection isn't in any one place. Since I'm single and I have at least two whole rooms I can freely decorate to my extremely dorky tastes, my stuff is all over the place and usually occupying shelves or surfaces that serve some other function (desk, DVD or book shelves etc.).

So, I'll start with my bedroom and around my desk. First up is the little shelf I keep my TV-related DVDs on (shows must be separated from movies) and then my "work" desk.




(these are the only statues I have. I intend to get more, but then I'll have to find a new space.)

Next, is my bureau, which is where I keep my Arkham toys:





Then, my most needed-reference-book shelf, which is where I keep other comic figures (and one Spock):


(yep, that's my one and only displayed Marvel piece on the bottom; the space in the middle top shelf is usually where to-be-read comics go [with the shofar as a paper weight], but I read them all this week)

And, lastly (but what started the request), around my bedroom entertainment center and DVD shelves, I keep all my kaiju stuff (except toys 9" or over is in the FoS).



Closer:







The shelves:






(that's a theater exclusive fire Mothra [aka when she burns] from Final Wars)


(finger puppets and bottle tops)


(bottom left is a theater-exclusive Baragon, bottom right starts the Gamera section, which continues...)

Jirass (aka Kira). He's hard to find. Last year at GFest I wanted to pick him up but they were sold out early on day 2. This year, I got him first and he sold out again except for a big version. X-Plus (who does the detailed models) should do one with Ultraman using the ripped off frill like a matador.

Yep. And Nightwing apparently watches over my old dictionary from college days. Actually there's little rhyme or reason except that my werewolves are over my werewolf books and my Star Trek pieces are in front of the Star Trek books (to come later).

Cool pics! Thanks for sharing them. I like how ends and stands have figures randomly decorating them, it works.

And it's good to see someone else has their dvd/bluray collection alphabetized in this lazy world we live in!

Thanks. I find bare shelves (i.e., with just books or just DVDs) boring.

I'm just anal enough that it would drive me nuts not to. Back in the day, my step dad used to randomly move my VHS tapes out of order just to bug me and see how long it took to discover. But with 500 DVDs, it's also practical.

Thanks. My cleaning schedule got delayed. Hopefully next week. Something may be added to the fortress this week anyway (I'll know when I get to my LCS tomorrow).

I love the TARDIS. It lights up when you open the door. When you lift it up, it makes the dematerialization sound, rematerializes when put down, and makes the travel (whoosh) sound when spun.

I really dislike having to dust off my collection.

My two latest acquisitions together.



(Papa Smurf won't normally ride Godzilla 2000, but it seemed a nice photo op.)

Sorry for the delay, everyone. I've been busy with some stuff. Should be up soon.

Okay, as promised I finally took the pictures of my Fortress of Solitude (aka basement den). Again, please note my collection isn't in any one place but is dispersed around other surfaces like books shelves etc.

Anyway, I'll start with just the posters as you walk in:





From inside (what you would see exiting):

Some of the Pez collection:





The rest of the kaiju stuff:

Right behind the kaiju is the MiB Simpson stuff (and a few MiB GLs):



Close-ups:







Few random things on the wall-length shelves:




(That's the Retro Girl [Powers] Memorial Statue and an Enterprise phone [a gift])


(At the top are Giant Microbes. Except for Herpes, they're all deadly ones.)

Video Game Toys:



Horror toys starting with (from the right) werewolf stuff:





A few more Simpsons things:



Some Trek Stuff:



MUSCLEs and Kinnikuman:

And last, but not least, the GL stuff:







Back along the wall-length shelving, around the TV, which is where I keep the modern GL series and BN figs:







The New Guardians and some odds and ends that don't fit the GL Corps or other themes:




(the alternates)

The Corps:

Very impressive Simpsons collection, SC! Wasn't aware of you being a Simpsons fan, but that's pretty cool. Also, those GL posters are great.
