    You guys collect anything else?

    Aside from gokins and kaiju, I also have a small collection of diecast vehicles - cars and bikes, in 1/18 & 1/12 scale.

    Just a few shots of my collection:

    Yo Souky,
    Thanks for changen the subject for a moment. I am also into diecast, all scales, but in 1/18 mostly street rods and drag machines.
    And in Hot Wheels, the one of a kind hand built Customs from the CHOP SHOPS that sprouted up across the country for a couple of years in the 90's. A handfull of Very talented guys built some amazzzing customs. And then for the most part vanished, leaving only the cars as proof they were ever here.

    I got it into my head a couple of years ago that I needed to make a train layout with my sons. It's a big-assed Lionel layout with all the toy train-style goodies like log, coal and barrel loaders, milk car, horse corral, stations, etc. Talk about a money pit.

    Anyway - those are some seriously nice cars Bob.

    Those are some really nice customs, Bob. 8)

    How much did these customs go for back in the days, if you don't mind me asking?

    Since you're into rods and dragsters, have you seen GMP's products? They are absolutely fantastic. Well built and quite heavy. The only downside of course are the prices.

    Yo Souky,
    Most of the Hot Wheel customs then were sold at auction on Ebay. There were 10 or 15 really great builders and a ton of guys learning the craft. It could take many many hours to complete a well done custom, I imagine that is why it didnt last. The price range was enormous, From $10.00 for a start up guy to $2000.00+ for a high end well known builder with a string of wins at national competetions. Most of the 10 - 15 better builders got $100.00 to $300.00 each at auction. Some of mine were commissioned, ie. I would send a 57 chrysler Imperial hard top to one of the better builders and ask him to make a pick up out of it, 2-3 months later it would arrive. Was a very cool time and alot of the custom works still influnces the Mattel Hot Wheels production design today. It was an explosion of creativity!!! Not unlike the vinyl world today.

    (La) Parka:

    I have quite a few DVD's of the Lucha variety - mostly the goofy ones from the 60's-70's. There is a whole series of Santo films put out by Rebel Crew Films/Rise Above entertainment. It isd called the Santo Collection. I am not sure if they are still in production. I had heard they lost the rights or never obtained the proper ones. Also not sure if they have had a PAL conversion for you UK blokes! I also have a series of films from Brentwood that are Hilarious! They are not dubbed or subtitled. In the original Spanish they ROCK! The visuals are so good who needs to know what's going on. Those are called Luchadores Enmascarados (Basically Masked Wrestlers).

    Paul K:

    I also have a series of the Pop up coffin from Mexico. I do have some dupes if you need any. I have a Frankenstein popping out of a machine, a Skeleton out of a car and I think a Ghost out of a graveyard. PM me. I can send pics if you want.

    man zomboid, what a collection! awesome!!!

    now, on collecting, other stuff i collect is basically old underground comics, and alternative comics.

    also postcards and other ephemera.

    on toys, (besides kaiju, SB and realhead) i have small amounts of other stuff: tin toys, ruber toys, each dollar store toys (i think like 2 of them), cartoony characters, etc.... most of them storaged on boxes, not enough space right now >_<

    i also like lucha libre stuff... but not so big into it. el santo is the most famous mexican wrestler, of course. i've seen some cheap toys of el santo on ebay too. another famous one is the blue demon...
    you can find those movies from "el santo collection" dr tongues is talking about. i've seen them on dvds at Tower

    speaking of old movies of guys on costume, this is not exactly a wrestler but a guy on a skeleton costume (kinda reminds me to the skeleton guy from tiger mask) this character from european photo novels named "SADISTIK" (known as "killing" in France). there is a movie of this character that you can order here and also you can check a little bit of the story about this character here

    if you check on the story of the character, there is another version of this guy named "kriminal", a guy on a yellow skeleton costume... is pretty similar to the old anime character "ogon bat"


    love the skulls....

    Man, that is some real madness Zomboid!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:
    It looks so cool the way you have all that displayed. What is the painting of the girl with the mandolin in the middle pic? I quite like that and is that a rubbing of a real tombstone you have framed in the bottom pic.
    Each time I look at these photos I see something else. Nice stuff.

    here some stuff I collect (I finally took some pics):

    horror/sci-fi/cult/explotation/weird foreign dvds

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    there's actually more. that shelf is normally full, but we've been moving stuff around because we're getting another shelf. some of those are my girlfriends too.


    kubricks/be@rbricks - my case is on the left (you can see some sxb guys fighting for extra shelf space right now), my girlfriends in on the right

    [​IMG]

    since my GF collects toys too, I get the added bonus of looking at her stuff. here's a case of her dolls

    [​IMG]


    I also collect Godzilla vinyls, but don't have any pics fo those right now.

    other things I'm interested in:
    -horror movie merch - monster toys, posters, cool promo items, other typical "spooky" stuff like halloween masks and crap like that
    -advertising characters/mascots (especially cereal and mcdonalds characters)
    -cryptids and other "mystery" figures
    -old horror fiction - mostly lovecraft and other weird tales/mythos writers
    -roller coasters - I "collect" them as I ride them

    I'm sure there's more, I'm a packrat

    they're Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 "Book of the Dead" editions put out by that company Anchor Bay. the discs come in little sleeves inside replicas of the books from the movies with original artwork inside them and latex covers to make them look like they are bound in skin and drawn in human blood.
