The Zen Room

My room is my sanctuary and my place of zen. It is in here where my core of happiness lies undisturbed.

Some people have memorabilias hanging in their walls. Others have a huge collection of DVD’s, books, or magazines towering in every corner of their rooms. My girlfriend’s room has layers and layers of complete seasons of Alias, Prison Break, Grey’s Anatomy and other T.V. shows she’s been working on. But mine is typically just another room for your average geek around your neighbourhood.

Most of my collections are action figures inspired in the comic books, and I successfully collected more than a dozen of them mostly coming from Marvel Select and Marvel Legends toy line.

Scarface, Predator, Robocop, and Terminator

I’ve got movie-inspired figures as well that I’m going to match with my DVD collection as soon as get another shelf for my room.
And if it gets too over-crowded in here, I probably just sell them or give it to someone who wants it dearly. But the fact is, this room will hold the coolest and the most iconic action figures around that every collector must have.

"You're invading my space!"

Collection and Combination

Combollector? That's like a merge between the word "Combiner" and "Collector." Or maybe that's just a word I invented for people like me who collects action figures and collectibles, especially those really cool build-a-figures (BAF) like the Marvel Legends Sentinel, or those combiners like the Devastator of the Transformers (which I'll be getting soon),...
Assembling my BAF Sentinel

or gathering an existing team of comic book characters in my living room. Either way, this is my hobby, and my "escape from reality" stuff.

In this blog, I will also be doing some toy reviews every week (hopefully, if time allows), on all sorts of action figures and collectibles I've collected, and hopefully get the latest and coolest stuff around. So check them out.
