TMNT Collection

So you can say I am a collector of different things, but my most favorite collection would have to be my Ninja Turtles collection. The TMNT guys were a big part of my childhood, and to this day I still watch my DVD cartoons of the classic TV series from the 80s. Coming home from school I would skip my homework just to watch them stop the evil Shredder and his minions (Bebop, Rocksteady, and the Foot clan) evils plans to rule the world. From costume's to gummy TMNT watches, the turtles had it all. Here are some pictures of my TMNT collection I have here at the office:

Video of my collection when I first restarted my quest to collect TMNT:

These are all unopened 1980s - 1990s TMNT figures: 


The ones below the shelf are the remakes they made for the 25th anniversary and a gift from my fiance. This set contains Leo, Raph, Don, Mikey, Splinter, Bebop, Rocksteady, and April. The Rat king figure is from the 80s and not a remake:




These are my loose figures with the original books, comics, from before the cartoon (First TMNT comic produced by Peter Liard and Kevin Eastman, also includes 2-4), Number 1 Comic reprint in color), and balloon from the 80s in the background, exclude the Lost in Space robot, and Spiderman bobblehead. The 1st TMNT comic is valued really high and is rare. Luckily for me I found this at a yard sale for $.25 cents:







This last picture contains a very special set based off the comic series. These are the Neca Series TMNT and are in black and white finish. These were a gift to me from my fiance. It's good that she doesn't have a problem with my collecting, and actually helps me add to it. I love her very much. Anyways here's the pic:


So yeah it's not a very big collection but I like it, and I will keep searching for more TMNT collectibles.
