Tri-State Collectors – Shop in the Mezco Vault – 8/16 Only!

[Update: Reading is fundamental! I posted this thinking the sale was today, but it’s next week. Oops!]

I often miss living in NYC (rarely during the oppressive summers or freezing cold winters, though), and today is one of those days. Starting in a short while at Noon EST On Friday next week, Mezco is opening up their vault and making some unique items available for sale to collectors like you and me.

So if you’re in the Tri-State area, now’s next Friday the time to tell your boss that you’ve come down with a summer cold, and get your butt to Mezco in Long Island City and pick up some loot. I’d be there if I could!

Most test shots will be priced in the $100-$200 range so they will be affordable to even the most thrifty collectors. Rare items will be offered at lower than expected prices as well. “This is truly a collector’s dream come true!” says Mezco’s resident artist/ ninja Rich Ford “Bring a truck and bring your credit card, because this is gonna be one heck of an event!”

Flashback: Mezco Hellboy Movie Figures are Still Awesome

Long story short, I was reading the latest Hellboy TPB, The Storm and The Fury, and that got me nostalgic for the first Hellboy movie, and that got me to break out the old Hellboy movie toys by Mezco – at least the ones that I could find. I’m sure the others will turn up, as I have some toy reorganizing to finish up in the next week or so, but for now, here’s some shots that I took. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did shooting them!

Q: What’s Better Than Storing Your Action Figures in Big Plastic Tubs? v2

A: Actually having space to display them! 🙂

A few months ago I wrote about having to dismantle my “toy room” because we had decided to put in new carpet, and then about getting to put together a new and improved display. This past weekend, I put the finishing touches on some upgrades.

Q: What’s Better Than Storing Your Action Figures in Big Plastic Tubs?

A: Actually having space to display them! 😀

A couple of days ago, I was lamenting having to move all of the action figures I had, not because we were moving, but because we had decided to install new carpeting. A few of them were on display in a small bookshelf that was mostly filled with books, and the balance were stored in big plastic tubs that I used to call “Staging Area One.” The carpet went in earlier this week, and I’ve been spending the last couple of days setting up the new display.

We got rid of the old bookshelf and added more shelving cubes. In all, there are forty-nine 1-foot square cubes, and I’ve got figures in thirty-one of them, and extra figures and customizing supplies in fourteen more. I’d guess I’ve got at least five times more display space than I used to.
