I found The Amazing Colossal Man on VHS for $5 at a thrift store this past Sunday, and seeing my collection finally completed*** made me want to show off, and see everyone else’s (doubtless way cooler) stuff too! I want to see pics of whatever MST stuff is currently adorning your homes, from DVDs, to bots, to needlepoint portraits of Richard Basehart. To start us off, behold…my stuff!
***I’m not going for duplicates, just one Rhino or Shout copy of each episode does me fine
My girlfriend found a stash of Rhino VHS tapes in a booth at the Midtown Mercantile Merchants in Tucson and excitedly waved me over. I chuckled, mostly uninterested, and then almost tackled the shelf when I saw The Amazing Colossal Man sitting there. I only released it from my meaty grip just long enough to hand over $5 and change to the cashier.
I broke down and finally spent the money to obtain Vol 10, but I don’t prize it nearly as highly as my 10.2, which (along with a mini poster) my good buddy got signed for me by Bridget, Mary Jo, Bill, and Kevin at Comic Con in 2008.
My collection of MST related books. Sadly, I missed out on Frank and Trace performing here at The Loft some years ago, but my girlfriend got me a couple of Frank’s books and a signature on one to boot!
Being an insufferable nerd, I sat down one day and designed a couple custom sets for KTMA, and the episodes Shout will probably never get. I will be first in line to buy any of these should they be legitimately released of course, but these scratch the itch in the mean time.
As with everything else, I did not get to meet Jonah. This was just a very affordable purchase from an online shop. It’ll go nicely with the signed collection I’ll be receiving from the Kickstarter rewards though!
I have a lot of other bits and bobs here and there, but these seemed the neatest ones. Please, share your collections! I wanna see!
