Show Us Your Shit: Hot Toys, Nerf guns, and lightsabers

Nov. 29, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

We ran a column entitled SHOW US YOUR SHIT on the now-defunct DVD CLINIC a few years ago, and it was always well received by our readers. But, unfortunately, over time we ended up just running out of entries. We're hoping to reboot the same column here on JoBlo.com in 2013 (gotta follow Hollywood's lead, yo!) so here's hoping many of you have cool movie collections to share with the rest of our fans.

To that end, if you've got a cool collection of Blu-Rays/DVDs, movie posters, toys, comic books, figurines, an awesome home theater set-up that you just have to share with the rest of the world of movie nerds who reside on this very site, this column is for you! Just read the requirements below and drop us a line at showusyourshit@joblo.com with pics (or videos) and commentary about your nifty stuff and your collection might be the next one up here.

REQUIREMENTS:

1) Please include any basic personal info on yourself, so others could know who the f**k you are. Age, sex, geographical location, what you do in life, etc....

2) Take some pictures or videos of any cool shit you have in your pad, and send it along with your message to us. Make sure that every picture/video is explained and you don't just send us a bunch of pics and say "Here's my shit!", cause that's not what we're looking for. We need some words attached to the pics, what they are, where you might've got it, shit like that.

3) Try and zone in on a couple of your FAVORITE AND UNIQUE ITEMS and point those out as well. If possible, let our readers know WHERE you might've bought them, etc...

And now, on to today's Schmoe!

Toy Inventor/Design Consultant

Here are some picture of my Hot toys collection. I bought Shadow boxes from Michael's and LED light bars from a hardware store. Most of the figures were purchased from a friend who runs a toy store (which can be found here, although the site is currently under construction).

This is my Nerf / Star wars display. I used a garage broomstick holder with rubber clasps to mount the light sabers. They are easy to pull off the wall for duels. I used pegboard to mount the Nerf Blasters.

Extra Tidbit: Of all the jobs to have, toy inventor/design consultant is not too shabby...

So groovy. The figures are amazing. I especially love the Nerf gun wall. If you had a secret door that opened up to reveal the Nerf guns... that would put it over the top in a sick way.

Insanely cool stuff, Hot Toys are the best of the best when it comes to collectible action figures, the pinnacle of the movie toy world, and I would so love to own nearly as many as Mr Mercer.

I'm always consistently happy to see people who enjoy their hobby enough to do something so interesting with it.

Ah ok

The way the lead in pic on the main page was set up i thought this guy had a life size replica of the Iron Man armor but its actually a figure, which is better. Having an actual Life size suit would sort of sad..... unless you like a millionaire anyway, heh.
