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 newest shelf:
DX Zeo Ultrazord, DX Super Zeo Megazord, DX Auric the Conqueror and DXWarrior Wheel
DX Zeo Ultrazord, DX Super Zeo Megazord, DX Auric the Conqueror and DXWarrior Wheel.

I couldn’t fit the Zeo Ultrazord on the other display shelves I got in january because it is too tall. So Zeo has it’s own shelf due to the height!

This now gives me a free shelf on my shelving unit and I can now also space the contents out a little more:
DX Ultrazord and DX Thunder Ultrazord
DX Ultrazord and DX Thunder Ultrazord.

DX Ninja Mega Falconzord, DX Shogun Megazord, DX Ninjor, DX Galaxy Mega (Japanese Astro Megazord) and DX Ninja Storm Megazord

I’m working on some smaller, thinner shelves for all my Power Rangers Figures and Kamen Rider Souchaku Henshin Figures. I’ll be sure to post pics once they are up.

Got my Dragonzord Coin from starlight.studio today! I have also received the core 5 coins too but there was a problem that starlight.studio are being very helpful in helping to remedy. I will post pics of those once we’ve sorted it out.

Starlight Studio’s Metal Dragonzord Coin with PowerProp‘s Tigerzord Coin I got 2 weeks ago. (Note: Starlight studio made both coins but used PowerProp’s sculpt for the Tigerzord coin and they are only available via her).

I have to say, these coins are beautiful. They really make my morphers shine and I think they look better than the bandai originals. Apparently, this Dragonzord Coin is not a re cast of a Dragon Buckler Coin but is starlight.studio’s own original sculpt and it’s so close, I would never have known if he hadn’t told me.

Also, starlight tells me he is working on Ninjetti Coins! He estimates that they will be available in time for Power Morphicon! Can’t wait to see them!

Sorry I have not posted any updates to my collection thread, the accountant at work messed up my paycheck every month since December. Had to wait till end of March to be paid and, as you can imagine, I was not impressed.

Anyway, I forgot to post pictures of my new display shelves. I got them in January and not all of my stuff will fit on them so much of my collection is still in storage. I’m still decorating my room and there’s more shelves on the way. For now, I just have my mecha on display but hopefully I’ll be able to display almost all of it once my room is finished.

I’m also much closer to completing my morpher display project. I’ve ordered the rest of the reprolabels I need and a full set of starlight.studio metal coins for good measure.

Just received the first coin today, Jess’s tigerzord coin (purchased from PowerProps on Ebay). The pics really don’t do this justice, they are so nice and shiny that its hard to get a good clear pic. The coins are awesome in metal and I really like her interpretation on the tigerzord emblem. Similar to the emblem on the toy saba sword.

Here’s my Christmas Haul. With the Jet, Shovel and Crane I got for my birthday yesterday, I can finally make Ultimate Daibouken. Wanted to get the Boukenger Mecha last year but I wanted to focus on earlier seasons at the time. When I saw what a mess BoA made of the Boukenger Mecha, I knew I was gonna have to import. Seems I lucked out by waiting though as I got all the necessary vehicles to make Ultimate Daibouken for half the price it was going for last year 🙂

Merry Christmas Everyone!

After all the crap that’s happened this year, I decided I would treat myself and buy myself a Christmas present. Here’s what I got:

MISB Megaranger Galaxy Mega: Cost me $140 shipped to the UK plus another £30 release fee to the bastards at UK customs :(. The item itself is beautiful, better than mint condition and this is now my oldest Japanese Mecha!

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.
