Shelf Porn Face-off | Who has the best Shelf Porn? You decide!

I’ve noted in the past that Shelf Porn isn’t a competition — it’s a celebration of the diversity of collections from fans all over the world. Well, today we’re going to push that philosophy to the side for a good old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out Shelf Porn Face-off! Two collections enter, but only one can leave the champion.

It started when I received an email from Tommy Baldwin, who said that he and his friend Shawn Hoklas wanted us to help settle the question “Who has the better room/collection?” I suggested we put it out to our readers to help decide. So, I’ve posted both sets of pictures today, and I’ve set up a poll so that you can vote for the room you think is better. If you aren’t sure how to decide, you can use the same criteria they use on Chopped — creativity, presentation and taste.

You can view Tommy’s collection below, then jump over to page two to take a look at Shawn’s. Finally, on page three, you’ll find a poll so you can vote for your choice. I’ll leave it open for a week, and then next Saturday we’ll declare a winner. Update: And we have a winner! Click over to the poll page to see who won.

Special thanks to Tommy and Shawn for sharing their collections with us. Now check them out!

Hello! My name is Tommy and welcome to my studio/getaway. I use this area to work on my illustrations/3D art and to store my collection of toys and vintage collectable from the 1980s. I guess you can say that I have always been a collector. I was the kid who always took extra good care of his toys. Well enough about me- onto the collection!

I am a huge G.I. Joe fan ever since my Dad gave me “Rock and Roll” way back in 1983. My collection has grown since then to include every Joe from 1982 to 1989.

Here is where most of my illustrations and sculptures are created.

I collect any weird 80’s toy line and none is more bizarre than the Worlds of Wonder line, GERMS! However I also appreciate more contemporary stuff like Ashley Wood’s 3A POPBOTS.

I also love MOTU. Note my custom Merman mask. One of my favorite pieces. It was created by my friend Erick Pertl.

My Indy costume and some of my favorite G.I. Joe vehicles and figures.

Here are some of the props I made for the Indiana Jones costume I put together a few Halloweens ago.

This is my vintage Eames-era chair that I pulled out of a dumpster. I refurbished and reupholstered it. Now it’s the perfect spot to read comics.

Nothing better than listening to some old mix tapes and reading some horror comics!

Here is my original Masters of the Universe animated cell background that over looks my mini arcade. The arcade consists of a 1969 Bailey’s ON-BEAM pinball game and a 1981 Centipede Cabaret. One of my goals in life is to get over 5,000,000 in Centipede.
