Awesome Superhero Figurine Collection

On October 26th, I went to a Halloween party at a friend's parents' house.  The party was great and all, but what I really want to talk about here is not the party, but a particular room in the house.  This room was by far the most amazing room I have ever been in.  No joke.

The room in question is a room that houses dozens of comic book superhero figurines, posters, and memorabilia.  It's a collection that's been in the works since the 1960's, when the owner was just a kid reading comic books.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see his collection of comic books, but I think I might have had an aneurism from the excitement of the whole thing if I'd seen the figurine collection and the comics collection.

So, without further ado, here are some pictures of the awesome collection that words cannot even begin to do justice.  (I apologize for the poor quality of some of the photos; I have a pretty old camera, and it couldn't decide what to focus on half the time.)

I personally love this one.  Not a lot of people collect Martian Manhunter figurines, and he's my favorite!

Honestly, these pictures don't do the place justice.  (Again, I apologize for the blurriness of some of them.)  Everywhere I looked, there were figurines and statues and posters and life-size cutouts.  Every time I looked into one of the cases, I noticed a new action figure that I hadn't before, or a different Batmobile, or a different comic book (of which there were just a few in these collector cases).  There were such collectible items as model Batmobiles from nearly every generation of Batman, the entire collection of Lantern rings (all of the colors), and almost every Alex Ross portrait of the Justice League members (including a group shot).

I hope that, one day, far into the future, I can have a collection that's half as good as this one.  (And, like I said, this is just the collectible figure stuff.  He has a collection of comic books, too, stashed away somewhere!)  This is what every fan should strive for, no matter the fandom they belong to.

Not only is this collection amazing, but it's a great source of pride for its owner.  He loves talking about his collection!  He's a man in his fifties, and the most amazing thing is to see his face light up when you ask him about his collection.  I hope I'm that excited about my fanaticism when I'm his age!
