Collectable Spectacle

13Apr10

Here is something pretty special.

This is a documentary (in 18 parts) of journalist and collector Mark Bellomo. The first couple of parts are interesting as we follow Bellomo around his local comic shop and toy store. But it is Parts 3 to 6 and 13 to 18, that the real interest lies – where a more relaxed Bellomo takes us into his storage space and uncovers boxes and boxes and more boxes of collectables. I’ve included Part 1 here:

Parts 6 to 12 show Bellomo working on the lastest edition of his book, The Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe 1982-1994: Identification and Price Guide. It is very comprehensive but for the most hardcore collector as well as accessible to the casual browser like me.
