What Discworld Stuff Do You Have?

Postby Tonyblack » Thu Jan 27, 2011 1:23 pm

Porkwellington's thread gave me the idea for this.

What Discworld stuff (genuine or made by fans for fans) do you have?

Does anyone else have one of these?

Well some of it can be seen here

http://www.flickr.com/photos/djj_pictures/sets/72157623616285312/show/

If you play the slideshow and move your cursor when it starts you will see in the top right hand corner an option to show info. Click on that and you will get the name of the picture at the very least and sometimes (when I could be bothered) more details.

There is more on the shelves such as an almost complete set of Clarecraft figures, all the books (sometimes several times), Nac Mac Feegles, pictures on the walls etc.

There is a reason why I am known as The Mad Collector :D

Well I didn't bother with the two versions of Ninereeds as I thought they were overpriced, especially as the wings are badly constructed so they fall off all the time. I am also missing the last 2 or 3 main series characters (from Monsterous Regiment) and the last event pieces, again I thought they were overpriced but if I'd known they were about to go bust I would have bought them anyway. I'll get them at some point, they do turn up but I draw the line at Ninereeds especially when you see the version Bernard Pearson made for me as a one off piece which is so much better.

I do have all the buildings I just haven't photographed them all yet. :)

er me, I live on my own with a huge collection of collections :D Ask Jan, Sjoerd or Pooh, they have all been here and been suitably shocked at the quantity of stuff :shock:

It's really amazing! Mad has got nearly everything. He has a bigger stamp collection than the Queen! :shock:

Only in certain areas Sjoerd. But I do like the fact that I have some stamps that are not in the Royal collection :)
