In no particular order......
#10 - Saturn V Rocket
#9 - Retro Alf Clip On
#8 - Super Powers Collection Mail Away Poster
Being a massive Super Powers fan/collector I had to own this poster. It was one of the offers kids could send away for. I never had it as a kid but knew I needed it as an adult. It took about 2 years to finally score one in nice shape. This one was virtually untouched. No rips, creases or pin holes. I took it to be custom framed straight away. I ended up choosing a metallic red frame which I think looks rad and compliments the loudness of this epic 80s poster!
#7 - My "Straight from Germany" Nut Cracker
For most people Nut Crackers are seasonal decorations taken out during the holidays. For me, this guy is proudly displayed all year around on the window ledge above my desk. My big bro brought it home for me about 4 years ago from his trip to Germany. I always wanted a real-deal nut cracker and the fact that my bro remembered this and hauled it all the way back from Germany instantly placed this guy high up on my list of favorite possessions!
#6 - My MOTU knick knacks
#5 - Cast signed "The Breakfast Club" 8x10
Being one of my all time favorite movies when I had a shot at this I jumped on it. It's a super iconic image from the movie and the era itself and I absolutely love having this display in my man cave! "Hi" back Mr. Nelson =)
#4 - My Pet Monster
There's just something about this toy that screams 80s! It reeks of the era in all the best ways! I never had one of these as a kid and it's one of those toys I always wanted. I finally grabbed this one for a great price and have him proudly displayed in my man cave! Some day I'll track down those orange cuffs but until then this guy is on the loose!
#3 - My Star Wars Statues
#2 - E.T. Collection
#1 - My Childhood Toys
So I'm sure you can see most of the stuff of this list is there for a sentimental reason or connection. I guess much of collecting is rooted in memories and the pursuit of reliving them. Without many of the items on this list my love for pop culture wouldn't exist making these items priceless!
I hope you enjoyed looking my top ten items. Be sure to scope out Cool and Collected for the rest of the League's entries!
