There are reprints of these record sets? I know I found a few from when I was a kid. That Spider-Man one. Also one for Hulk and Batman. I thought there were a lot more.

The comics in the Golden Record sets are reprints (with some changes), I'm unaware and have never seen any official re-issues of the records or reprints of the reprint comics. There were only the four Marvel sets. According to the ad on the back of the comics there was also a Batman set and a Superman set and there have been numerous record/comic sets issued by other distributors (some are showing in my 14th picture).

Really enjoy looking at your comic rooms so thought I’d share mine. I especially like seeing glass display cabinets and rows of comics, I would love to get a comic spinner rack like some of you guys have but being in UK I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think I’ve lots of good stuff but only a small room to keep it. Not sure if I should thin out what’s on display so only the best stuff showing. Apologies for picture overload. 690B7F03-4F98-41BA-A8CD-08EEF6B573A2.thumb.jpeg.e3df2f921721113039394491addd0fb2.jpeg8E81E148-B7BE-4F2D-879B-8FCE9DB5C473.thumb.jpeg.3c32590d5641dafbae160860e71b0f63.jpeg

As much as I love EVERYTHING in these photos, it's the Presto Magix that give me the nostalgia feels. Now THAT brings back some memories. Bravo:golfclap:

I have to look into this some more. Thanks for mentioning the Superman. I found a Superman record without the sleeve a while ago and just stored it away. I didn't pay attention to the details. But I guess that is another I have. But no comic to that one.

Some may remember me posting a ways back about my friend that's moving in with us, and the wall of comics I moved to his bedroom here.  We're still working on the transition but this Saturday I rented a Uhaul and we got the rest (~170 short boxes) of his collection into a stage facility.  Boy were we sore on Sunday.  So it may not be as decorative as my comic book room here at the house, but this is his comic book room:

Wow, can you imagine somebody opening that door up on Storage Wars???

Maybe time to downsize a little...

I remember those Marx Marvel Character figures well. Came in bins in the market. Oh, how me and my brother would whine at my mom for them as well as the Marx Nutty Mad figures...

I loved them so much that I had to go back and re-find them as an adult after mom got her revenge and pitched my original ones. I had to pay a lot more than she did originally for them though...

Yeah I think it said 72 degrees. 4th floor so no flooding, but we put down a plastic sheet in case someone in an adjacent room spills something.

Finally getting to put some stuff together in our new place. Started off building up around the Marvel arcade cabinet...maybe should have went higher on the wall. There are just so many paintings I’m a little worried I might not maximize wall space as best I could.

I still have a long way to go...

It'd take multiple pallets but sure.  I'm not inclined to help lift 170 boxes out of there again and put them back in on top of pallets though.  I think anything of significant value he's keeping in the other ~70 boxes at the house.
