Send Us Your Shelf Porn!

Send Us Your Shelf Porn!

It’s Wednesday again and here we are for another edition of Send Us Your Shelf Porn. Our guest this week is Batman devotee Julian Smoger, who has accumulated quite the caped crusader collection and wanted to share some of his more interesting finds with Robot 6 readers.

Once again, let me encourage any and all of you who’d like to submit your collection to please do so. Just send any pictures and commentary to cmautnerATcomcastDOTnet and I’ll try to get it up on the site in a few weeks time.

In the meantime, I’ll hand the virtual mic over to Julian …

I like Batman. I like Batman a lot. I like Batman so much that I plan on opening my own Batman museum one day. On top of the toy and doodad collection, I’ve accumulated a few thousand Batman only comic books.

These are my first Batman toys from when I was a kid in the early ’80s. The SuperPowers toy is actually a replacement for the original, which I lost when I was young and cried for ever about. The bed comforter was used until I was in college or something ridiculous like that. The 2 Mego toys were bought for me by my parents when they went on a vacation (it’s at the point now where, when on vacation, my mother just buys me Batman stuff from antique dealers).

This is probably one of my favorite pieces in my collection. My mom made this from scratch for Halloween when I was mad young. Notice the muscles sewn in to make my scrawny ass look beefy! Eventually, I want to get a maniquin and a plexiglass case to house it in, just like the Batcave!

The story behind this one is a bit funny. I was living in NY and saw the promotion. I did not, however, want Domino’s. I just walked in and asked for the box, got odd looks from the staff, then demanded a box. Eventually, they just wanted to get rid of me, so now I have it!

This is a custom piece I had done at the famous Six Flags amusement park! Ha ha. I had originally gotten it for my Grandmother as a present but since she’s moved, I’ve re-inherited it, which is ok with me!

I got this at NYCC2009. I had never really met any big names before, and as I was walking through the aisles, I saw a little unassuming old man at an empty table with a sign that just said “I created the Joker”. I walked up and met Jerry Robinson, a very pleasant gentleman who signed this print for me. It was great to be able to meet a piece of history.

These pics are about 2 years old as I now live in a tiny apartment where I’m unable to set everything up. As you can see, my obsession runs deep. If Batman’s on it, I’ll buy it; spaghettios, shampoo, bubble bath. Since I’ve moved, I cataloged everything individually. If you want to see more (a LOT more), check out The Batman Museum.
