Send Us Your Shelf Porn!

Welcome to another edition of Send Us Your Shelf Porn. Our guest this week is Dan Royer, a graphic designer from Wilmington, Il., and one of the co-creators of From the Tomb, an online horror comics magazine.

Often with Shelf Porn, folks send in collections built around a certain theme or character. Dan’s is unique in that it’s the first I’ve seen to focus on Iceman from the X-Men. To read about his fascination with the character and see more photos from his collection, just click on the link below.

I fell in love with Iceman when I saw Uncanny X-men #281. It was the first comic I ever bought. Thank you Mr. Whilce Portacio. When I was around 10 years old I saw the original Toy Biz Iceman and went nuts at Wal-Mart to get my mom to buy it for me. Ever since then I have been hooked on buying the toys and what not. I currently am missing the bigger stuff like statues and busts. The one thing I am looking for above anything else is the Secret Wars Iceman that was a Europe only release.

Below is my wall featuring 43 Different Iceman toys. That does not include all items, just the toys.

The top row contains the small items: Heroclix, loose figures, minimates, Kubrick, and the Iceman copter. The 2nd row holds smaller toys: Superhero Squads, Iceman stickers, two Iceman pint slasses and the X-Men NES game. 3rd Row: All three Icemen from the X-men set (Regular, Bobby, and Ultimate), and the X-Men 2 Movie Iceman

4th Row: Iceman Covers (as seen in the pic above) the small cards are every cover Iceman has been the focal point on, Iceman buttons, and three Iceman covers CGC’d: Ultimate X-men 9, X-Facotr 64, Uncanny 422 Bottom Row: Large Toys and box sets (as seen at the very top photo): 2 Fire and Ice sets (one with Pyro one with Torch) Main ones are Ninja Iceman, and 2 Canadian variants with Iceman and Bishop and a 4 pack with Iceman, Apocalypse, Sinister and Weapon X.

Some close-up photos of the buttons and cards.

It’s really hard to find info on this particular item. What I have been able to find is that these metal toys were prototypes that were shown at shows but never took off. It’s the rarest piece in my collection.

I came across a bobble head at a garage sale and I am converting it into an Iceman bobble head.

I also collect New Orleans Saints Toys and Futurama toys, so this is the wall with them. My rarest thing here is the original Moore collectibles Fry.

My comic collection. Iceman-wise I have the two mini-series, Strange Tales #120, Amazing Spiderman #92, and many more that I think have significant for me, at least as far as the character is concerned.
