Those of you that have been following my blog will know that I’ve had to keep most of my beloved collection in plastic storage boxes since I returned to collecting in 2004. Since I’ve been redecorating my room, I decided it was time to display (and enjoy) as much of my collection as my small room will allow. I’m also worried about things getting damaged in the storage boxes and also I’m not really appreciating each piece properly (and I should as it’s cost me thousands. I still don’t think I’ll be able to have the lot on constant display but I’m slowly adding new shelves and breaking stuff out of their storage boxes.

Here’s my new figure shelves for my Toku Figures:

(Top Shelf) Garo Equip and Prop Collection, Miscellaneous Kamen Rider Den-O and Kiva SH Figures and Figuarts. (Middle Shelf) Kabuto SH Figures and Den-O SH Figures. (Bottom Shelf) Faiz SH Figures with RH Orphenocs, Blade SH Figures, Hibiki SH Figure and Saban's Masked Rider Figure.

I’ve also displayed my Power Rangers Figures on my pelmet above my window.

I just need to make one more shelf for the rest of my ranger figures and to allow room for my collection to grow. I still have some of my collection in storage boxes as I do not have room to display them (morphers, weapons etc).

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I last posted photos of my beloved collection a few years ago and its got much bigger since then :). Also much of my collection is in storage boxes but, as I recently got my digital camera fixed, I decided to set about the mammoth task of photographing each piece.

Sadly, I’ve been out of the collecting game for a little while. I’ve had to watch my money due to financial troubles over the last few years or so. There tons of stuff I want, but most of it will have to wait till Christmas :(.

I started my collection in 1994 when Power Rangers first hit the screens. Pretty much everything you see from MMPR to Zeo is from my original collecting days (apart from my new replacement auto morphins, 5 NISB Power Morphers and my NISB Dragon Dagger). My Beetleborgs stuff is also from when I was a kid. I stopped collecting during Turbo and carefully placed my collection up into the attic. Though I packed things carefully with sealed bags for small parts and weapons etc, seven years in the cold dark attic has somewhat damaged my toys. I’m going to invest in some repro labels and clean up my old zords soon. I’m glad I looked after my toys though.

Then, around 2004 when Dino Thunder was airing, I started to visit sites like RangerBoard.com and RangerCentral.com etc and started re-watching every series. I also found out about sentai but I’ve not yet got into the japanese show despite owning many toys due to their superior quality. But I have become a huge fan of Kamen Rider, Garo and many other Japanese toku series over the last few years (as my collection hopefully shows).

I will try to keep this thread updated as my collection grows further.

Here is my collection. Click the small image to view a larger version. Please note: I am not selling any of my collection.

Current Display:

Took some pics of my current display before I had to take it all down to get at the stuff in the storage boxes my figures are posed around. My room is sadly very small :(.

All 6 Power Morphers
My Power Morpher Collection. The one at the back is my original (well worn) morpher from when I was younger with a Tigerzord coin by Buzzs_room. The 5 others I found MISB from a japanese seller who had a crate full on ebay a few years ago. I will soon be customising these to make them more show accurate with gold plates and reprolabels. Check out this post to see my progress on this project.

Recently bought some brand new versions of these figures. Theres something about the plastic the auto morphins were made of, apparently, that makes them prone to yellowing.

As ebay seemed to have a plentiful supply of these I figured I may as well buy new ones and temporarily remove heads from my old figures to make helmets for display. I have two of evry figure including green. Now to find rocky, adam and aisha.

Custom Morpher Coins by Buzzs_Room
I have the regular and “battle damaged” tigerzord and dragonzord coins made by the awesome Buzzs_Room. I’m a huge fan of the season 2 – 3 period hence why the tigerzord coin is in my display. I have the crazy cat coin that came with my tigerzord back in the daybut I’m not displaying it for obvious reasons lol.

I’m getting some Ninja Coins from Argus when they arrive and I have some of the coloured coins released with the metallic movie figures.

Kabuto Souchaku Figures
Kabuto pretty much complete, just need Hyper Kabuto and some kind of Dark Kabuto figure. Got Kabuto and the Hoppers yesterday.

Garo Equip and Prop Figures
My new Makai Knights I received yesterday. Got Kiba on its way. These figures look beautiful but are a real pain to put together. I swear they did not intend these figures to be transformed back into their human forms, I know I sure wont be changing them after it took me nearly an hour to put them together. The joints are so stiff, Garo’s legs were certainly the hardest parts to put together. Beautiful figures though, the paint job is flawless and the swords and Makai Jewelery are metal!

Souchaku Zeronos Altair and Vega with Figuarts Deneb
Got deneb yesterday. Ive also pre ordered Urataros. Any idea if they intend to release all the Figuarts Imagin?

Blade Souchaku Figures
Had to move my blade collection to fit my new Garo and Kabuto figures. Cant believe after putting all my stuff into storage boxes, I’m running out of space again lol!

Gonna try to take some better quality shots with my Mum’s digital camera tonight.

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Here’s a few newer photos, I got some plastic storage boxes a few months ago which means I don’t have to keep any of my beloved collection in the cold dark attic. The only catch is, I cant display as many figures and zords as I used to. But at least I know the rest of my collection is safe and dust free in the storage boxes.

Here’s a few of the newer items and old favs I have displayed at the moment:

SH Kamen Rider Blade
Blade now complete, might buy Glaive and King Form but I cant see the point in having King Form if they did not release Jack Form. You can also see my new storage boxes in the background.

Faiz Souchaku Figures with RH Orphenocs
Faiz now complete, movie riders don’t really do it for me but I may get them later to complete the collection. Why was axel form a limited edition yet again? 😡

Kiva Souchaku Figures
Got Garulu Form a few months ago, why are they releasing the Kiva figures so slowly? Still no IXA or Saga etc?

RH Imagin Figures
My RH Imagins. Kinda wish I had held out for the new articulated figuarts figures they are releasing now but they still look cool all together, plus they were cheap. Wish they had released Deneb. Will probably get all the Figuarts figures as the new Deneb will look a little strange next to the RH scale figures.

Kabuto Souchaku Figures
My favourite series and the one that started it all – Kabuto! Got Sasword and The Bee today! Kabuto is on his way so I have saved him a space lol. Does anyone know if the Figuarts Hoppers are the same scale as the SH figures?

Garo Equip and Prop Vol.7
Love this figure. Sure the joints are dodgy and its a pain in the ass to put together but it looks so good on the display shelf. Ive got the other Makai Knights on their way as I foolishly ordered my Christmas presents a little late. Gonna try to complete the Equip and Prop collection and may even get the new 12″ figure.

Will post more pictures once the rest of my Christmas haul gets here. Most of the Power Rangers stuff is in the storage boxes now as I’m kinda more into Kamen Rider and Garo now and the last two seasons of PR were a bit of a disappointment to me.
