Superman Collection Additions – 15.05.17 – The Aspiring Kryptonian

I’m going to break this months pick ups down into two posts – the second half coming at the end of the month. There’s just too much to go through 🤓

After sorting all of my items from the attic I’ve started documenting and taking pictures of everything that I have. With the idea that I won’t end up with the same thing twice… here’s hoping. The way that the official world records are documented is that each set of everything counts as one item and each item has to be listed with images. So I’ve been documenting mine in the same way so that I have an accurate number and track on my items. Thank you to @Kryptoncollector on Instagram for that one – he is currently the world record holder for the largest Superman collection! Lucky fella!

So let’s start with the first half of this months pick-ups…

1. Superman VS Muhammad Ali Comic – first edition.

Now this is one of those times where people don’t know what they’re selling on eBay! I’ve seen these go for around $200- $300 dollars! I managed to bag this one for just £30.00. Still in GREAT condition! It’s even the limited edition giant issue. I have to say this is one of my favourite Superman possessions! Can you spot Batman in the crowd???

2. General Zod Funko Pop

I have a bit of a thing for Funko Pops – it’s not healthy! The Man of Steel pops are what they called ‘vaulted’ which means they’re no longer manufactured, which makes them rare, and therefore worth a fair bit than their RRP price. Now I have both Superman in the MOS suit and now the General himself to go with it!

3. Superman VS The Amazing Spider-Man Comic – First Edition. 

Again… people really do NOT know what they’re selling…. Similarly to the Superman VS Muhammad Ali comic, I’ve seen this sell for at least $400! How much did I pay for this you ask? £15.00. Absolutely bargain. Again in great conditions, a few bumps to the side but nothing major. Another one of my favourite items!

4. Superman Vol 2 – Issue 35

Now I’m trying to fill gaps in my comic collection so that I can read them straight through! The Superman comic series I have most of is Superman Vol 2. I have around 200 of the comic series so far… must… get… them…all!

5. Superman Thingy-m-bobby

Now I’m not going to lie… I have no clue what this is 😂 just that’s it’s cute, and it’s Superman.

7. General Zod Figurine

I LOVE this. I think it’s the best birthday gift I had this year. In a few months time I’m going to London Comic-Con and Terrance Stamp – the original General Zod is there. I’m hoping to get this signed! The detailing is incredible! And it was so hard to find. I cannot wait to see him!

8. Red Son Superman Funko Pop

Although I have hundreds of comics, I’ve only just started to read through them. Starting with my graphic novels. Red Son was the first one I picked up, and I couldn’t put it down. Such an interesting yet different concept of Superman, I loved it. So it’s only fair I got the Funko Pop to go with it right?

9. Superman 500 Piece Puzzle

Anothe Puzzle! Again I love the comic inspired box – I think this will take a while for me to do!

10.  Superman Returns Cinema Poster

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. I had to unravel this in the living room as my room was too small. Amazing! I’ve had this for a couple of years but just had to share it now that I’ve dug it out! There are a few tears along the side where it was put and and my pet rabbit took a little chunk out too – I will never forgive him for that.

11. Clark Kent Funko Pop

This has to be one of my favourites! He’s so CUTE!
