Sharkey's Collection

Hello everyone, just stumbled across the forum last week and can't believe I had never had it come up in my google searches.

I'm a relatively new statue collector myself, just started in January of this year. Only have 3 Statues so far, and the wife has 1 (sorry for the amateur photography, will see about getting the wife to take some later):

Hi Sharky.

Welcome to the forum. We've moved your thread here to the Collection Corner. This is where members can maintain and update a thread displaying their collections.

Thanks

Nah, he is mine . He is a little squishable thing i got from a capsule from my local comic book store. She pulled a Thor out of her's.

So I have been pretty overwhelmed with the whole new world of statues trying to find out what is out there. Google searches have been only mildly helpful. Is there any repository of statues/figurines? I have slowly found a few (I assume) large makers (slideshow, bowen, tsume, kotobukiya), but I have randomly seen others from makers that apparently do not have their own webstore.

I've been mainly attracted to the statues that are more battle scenes or action poses, as apposed to the character just standing there. Love the Batman v KC I grabbed from my comic shop. It was the first one, and has started me down this money hole of beauty.

Best bet is look through the reviews and other peoples collections. once you browsed half the collection thread you'll have an idea of just about everything that's out there. Welcome to the madness.

Thanks Can't wait to move in a couple years and get a room dedicated to displaying stuff. I am expanding this a bit faster than I thought I would be and not sure if my little corner is going to be enough by the end of the year.
