Hi everyone. Happy comic book release day!! I continue to work on getting my collection website up and running just as soon as possible. I realize it’s taking a long time and, for that, I apologize. You don’t know how badly I’m wanting to have it all finished and available for you. It’s going to be so cool and I thank you for your continued patience and support.
In the meantime, as promised, here’s a small “teaser” look into my TMNT collection. A collection 25+ years in the making and growing every day (especially on Wednesdays 😉 ). This is just a snippet of all the TMNT goodness that’s in store for you when tmnt-ninjaturtles.com officially launches this spring. Hope you enjoy!
UPDATE: Some of you are asking what my entire TMNT collection consists of. Well, my main collecting passion is the comic books, trades, hardcovers, etc. I consider myself a “completist” (or “completionist”) in this area…that means I seek to have at least one copy of every TMNT comic book, variant cover, error, limited book, trade, etc. ever made. However, I also collect some of the action figures and have a lot of TMNT memorabilia from the TMNT glory days of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.
Hmmm…since my website database has been built, maybe it would be helpful to share with you the following numbers. This will give you an idea of the size of my collection. Keep in mind that every database entry is a unique item. For instance, TMNT #1 (IDW) Cover A, B, C, etc. will each get their own database entry (each with their own image or picture).
- Comics – currently 1,215 database entries
- Action Figures – currently 219 database entries
- Memorabilia – currently 212 database entries
And, as if that weren’t enough, the database currently contains 2,601 unique images and pictures !! Wow !!!
