FEATURE: LoEB ''Shelf Expression''

Behold! The League of Extraordinary Bloggers return!

Like everybody this post-Thanksgiving week, it seems Brian at Cool and Collected is still playing catch-up. So this week's assignment for the League is a simple, pictorial one (meaning we don't have to try and write 1000 words analyzing how the technology of Star Trek could be used to make better sandwiches), with this simple instruction:

Post a photo of a shelf of items that displays your love for pop culture.

So here goes!

I'm not going to attempt a full inventory of what's on display here, but highlights include the Marvel Masterworks Galactus and Sentinel 18'' figures, a vintage Cyborg and Android from the Denys-Fisher line, a repro Henshin Cyborg, a half dozen or so LEGO Hero Factory figures, various Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man and Marvel Universe figures, a Myclone King Walder and half my Microman collection, including Magne Power figures/vehicles, Micro Force toys and classic repro figures. I really need some new shelves.

Oh and if you look closely at the bottom right of the photo you'll clearly see a spirit orb, which I arranged to appear to represent my love of hokey ''ghost hunting'' ''reality-based'' ''documentary'' shows.


So what about the other homes of the obsessive and geeky my fellow collectors?

Brother Midnight's shelf is the stuff of cute nightmares
The Monster Cafe's stumbles accidentally onto the same vibe
Reis at the Lair of the Dork Horde goes Retro

See more at Cool and Collected.


  1. Nice display! These are the exact cabinets I'm planning on picking up.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. They're really cool. I know IKEA had withdrawn them for a while and they were out of stock but you can get them again now (or at least the last time I looked!)
