Saturday Shelf Porn!

Hello and welcome to the long-running-but-recently-moved Shelf Porn, now on Saturdays to help make your weekend more super. Today’s Super Shelf Porn comes from Jason George, who shares his collection of items featuring the Man of Steel — he’s got statues, toys and even a guitar.

If you’d like to share your collection with the world, please email a write-up and pictures to jkparkin@yahoo.com. We’re always looking for collections large or small, even if it’s just a picture or two … I’ve got a couple of single pictures I’ll group together into one post when I get a few more in. So send’em today!

And now here’s Jason …

I have been a fan of your articles for a while now and always enjoy seeing other collections. I have a fairly large superman collection that we have always called the superman room in our house. My wife is due in four months and I will be boxing the collection in order to make room for the baby. But before I started putting it away, I decided to take pictures of my superman stuff and send them along to you.

I have been a superman fan since 1978 for the same reason like most fans. The movie just blew me away. I had the toys and stuff like that as a kid, but “my collection” really started taking of around 1990 when I started making some money I guess. I have collected comics and have over 14,000 DC titles and I believe I have every DCU title and comic since 1980. This in turn started my collecting of superman items.

My favorite parts of the collection are the statues and the watches. I have over 150 superman watches. Over 15 clocks. I also like the four WETA statues that I have although I am afraid to move them because they are so big, heavy and fragile. If I did this all over again the only thing I would change is buying every single superman and superman villain action figure, they take up a lot of space. I have boxes of them in the attic not on display. Another piece that I like is the life size bust I have of Brandon Routh, I wanted to get the full size statue but didn’t have the room. I won the superman guitar at a six flags park. I have a part of the room dedicated to just any movie, cartoon or TV show DVD and put them on in my superman DVD player TV. The room itself is yellow with red shelves. The ceiling is blue and has a fan in that has the planet earth. The blades have superman flying around it. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks, Jason George
