Hello collectibles fans...

My name's David Peck from Berkshire in the UK. I work for a national charity and (shameless plug) have a novel currently available on Amazon called 'Nightlife'. I've been a Marvel and DC fans since the 1970's.

My youngest memories were of repeats of the Adam West Batman show when here in Blighty most of us still had black & white TVs. I've always been more into the cartoons and TV shows/movies than the original comics having grown up with Super-Friends, The Incredible Hulk TV series and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.

Like many of my generation, my first superhero toy was the Corgi Batmobile (which you can make out on one of the shelves) and which started my life-long love of all incarnations of the caped-crusader's ride. I have around 20 different versions of the '66 Batmobile among my collection and even had it as my wedding car.

Here are a few photos of my items on display (there's plenty more boxed up in attics and garages), but I like to keep it tidy so only show what generally fits nicely into Ikea cabinets. Most of them were produced by a company called Eaglemoss and were/are partworks with different items released twice a month.

The Marvel only unit contains their 'Classic Marvel Figurine Collection' while the DC only unit features the 'DC Comics Figurine Collection' and the Batman set of the 'DC Comics Chess Collection'. The DC/Marvel display (with my pride and joy vintage superhero pencil toppers above it) consists of Bowen sculpts, Hotwheels Batmobiles, Corgi Batmobiles and Eaglemoss' 'Classic Marvel Chess Collection' complete set 1 and work in progress set 2. The forth cabinet contains all the 'Batmobile Automobile Collection' vehicles released so far. Atop that are a few more Hotwheels and the 1966 Batman Blu-ray set (which is stunning, buy it if you haven't yet).

The last picture is my current collection of '66 Batman related toys (I still need the NECA Robin, and plan to get the Hot Toys versions eventually).

I hope you enjoy my little corner of the Marvel and DC collectibles universe.
