The Great Cinema Shelf

As I’ve said a few times while writing this website, I love movies. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Television and Film, I’ve written a spec script that was produced into a feature length film in 2005. They are a huge part of my life. In my first two pieces for this site which you can read here and here, I explain how I always wanted movie accurate versions of movie characters in toy form as a kid and how when I discovered McFarlane Toys’ Movie Maniacs line which started my adult collecting in 2000.

I decided to create a massive collage of film characters in plastic form, all contained on one shelf. A huge, ensemble photo showing decades of movies grouped together. I decided early on that the object was to get as many unique facial sculpts on one shelf as possible, while covering as many films as I possibly could. Many figures I own from sequels did not make it onto the shelf simply due to space limitations and not repeating characters too often.

I’m very happy with how it turned out and I hope you are too.

1931-2014. 83 years of cinema. 81 films. 116 figures.

Enjoy!
