Pop Culture League - Show your Shelfie!

Guess who's back? The league is back!














First topic is to show us your shelfie!  So most of my stuff is packed in boxes in the garage, so I have to rotate collections in and out. Over the last few months, I've watched the Plastic Galaxy about 100 times. If you haven't seen this documentary about how Kenner got and executed the Star Wars line, and the history of vintage Star Wars collectors, you're in for a treat. 

After watching it about 100 times, I decided to rotate my vintage Kenner collection onto my man cave shelves. It's a combination of actual vintage sets along with some of the repro vintage sets that Hasbro released a few years ago.

So here goes!




The middle empty shelf is where I take my "shadow box" photos of figures. Easier on the back because I can take the photo while standing. Showing my age not just with the vintage collection.


Hasbro 6 inch Black Series and the NECA Simpson Celebrity series. We have plenty of casualties from my cat.  Also, Super7 ReAction Alien figures and playsets.




Alien figures and playsets.


Crown jewel - vintage Greedo!


And some Gentle Giant Jumbos on the TV stand!

    1. Thanks Brian. I wanted to make it look like you were walking through a toy store aisle during the Kenner era. Need better shelving but this will do.

    1. Thanks Rich! I need some kind of pegboard to hang the figures, even if they are the Vintage collection retros.

  3. Very cool. I'm impressed with all the boxed stuff you have. That's something that missing from my collection, a vintage, boxed item.

    1. Thanks! Had a few of the retros that came out a few years ago and have been collecting the vintage packaging during the last year or so. Serious nostalgia.

    1. Thanks! I've been getting rid of packaging for other collections, but the vintage Star Wars packaging will always be art.

  5. I am definitely digging those shelves. I kinda wish I had been old enough to enjoy Star Wars toys at their first peak.

  8. Now that is a fantastic collection! Once upon a time I would have LOVED to have had a Star Wars collection like that. I still have most of my figures and some ships.
