Carnoking's collection
« on: September 23, 2020, 11:15:08 PM »
I've been on this forum for a while now, but I realize I've never shared my collection. I'll fix that now.

Got the Safari dinos here.

I keep the more scientific REBOR models here. I'm going to need more space for it soon enough.

The Carnegie section.

This is the CollectA corner. Don't have a lot of these guys, but I think I got some of the better ones here.

Got the Terra by Battat collection here. Earlier this summer when they went on sale for like 6 bucks a set, I decided to grab some open ones as well.

Then of course the original Battat stuff along with the new sculpts from the Terra line. Not everything is pictured here, I'll need to do a whole set photo shoot as soon as I get that v2 ceratosaurus. The diplodocus is the only one currently on my desk and away from the others, for obvious reasons.

Some Schleich stuff, not a lot.

And even less marine life figures.

This is where I keep the higher end scientific models, PNSO, Eofauna, Vitae, that sort of thing.

The big PNSO Chungkingosaurus wouldn't fit up on the shelf with the rest, so he's hanging out with the Favorite Co. brothers.

Then not far off, I've got Papo. They're the brand that started it all for me, so I wound up collecting them quite religiously almost.

Also got this random inbox spino not with the rest of the collection.

Then my desk is the Pop Culture zone, dinosaurs from the movies and what not. I got into dinosaurs because of film and television, so when I'm working I like to surround myself by the stuff that inspired me.

And speaking of Pop Culture, my closet's the Jurassic Zone. Got Mattel and Kenner stuff covering the shelves in there, as well as some random corners of the room. The worst part of it is, this isn't even all of the Mattel stuff. I've got about three tote bins of other MIB toys, mostly color variants and a few doubles, but yeah. There's too many!

Then of course, I've got Blue.

Glad I finally did this. I'll keep updating it as I go with some (hopefully) better pictures. If anything, this first round showed me that I really need to dust! Also really puts it into perspective... Maybe I need to rethink my life decisions. :P

That is impressive!

The one picture with Schleich Apatosaurus looks funny! As If it is thoughtfully looking out of the window through those jalousies.

Seeing a lot of familiar faces here. ;)

Also, I love the display of all the Battat Terra boxes. Brings me back to ancient times of about 4 years ago when I first started collecting. Back when you could actually find dinosaur models outside of craft stores.

A really solid collection - I'm particularly impressed with the old school Safaris.

Now that's an impressive mix of stuff. Lots of new and old there. Love what I'm seeing.

Whoa! - that is one seriously impressive collection! Thanks for sharing.

My wife is now used to the number of figures I have in this room (as long as they stay in this room and don't take over the house!) and I was looking at these images when she came in. her first reaction; "how much would all of that have cost?"

She has a point but I think with collectors, at least from my experience, the money is only the means to an end. You're only here once so enjoy yourself (within reason of course).

Nice, that's a hell of a collection! Very eclectic.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.
