Toy Collection 6: License Plates

I’m posting at a weird time today because I’m: 1. not currently present at the day job (vacation day) and 2. avoiding various responsibilities like checking voicemails, etc.

Today we have movie and tv license plates! We just finished this part of the collection. There actually aren’t as many to choose from as one might think.

On the left, we have Smokey and the Bandit, Ecto-1 (Ghostbusters), and Jurassic Park. On the right, we have Knight Rider, Back to the Future, and Jeepers Creepers. That last one needs some distress. It’s a little battered in the movie.

But, you ask, what is that tucked behind the corner of the Back to the Future license plate?

Why, it’s a copy of Marty McFly’s driver license! This came with the license plate. It may have been a surprise; I don’t remember for sure. This is made out of metal like the license plate.

Toy Collection 1 – The Simpsons

Oh my gosh. It is like WAY too cold outside. 10 degrees as I type this. It was 5 this morning when I got up. Earlier, I was thinking about how frivolous things like towel heaters and heated floors seem in the summer. In this weather, they look more like genius!

Anyway, I’m going to do a series of posts with the toy collection. My first idea was to just slap a bunch of pictures up all at once but that didn’t feel like enough. It felt cheap, somehow, not that my stuff is exceptionally fancy. It’s not fancy, but it does mean something to me, because I am a dork.

First up is a set of Burger King toys from when the Simpsons Movie came out in 2007. Wait, that was almost 10 years ago! Omg, I can’t believe it has been that long. How crazy is that?

Yes, I remove most of my collectibles from packages because I don’t buy stuff for potential future nerds; I buy stuff for present nerd, which is me.

This is the first hardcore collection I assembled as an adult. I went to at least 3 Burger Kings on several occasions to get this collection together. My favorite helpful Burger King associates were the ones who let me dig through the boxes. That’s how I got the “rare” golden Homer in the back.

The Duff can is just an energy drink I bought within the last year or so from Five Below.

That’s it for this one. Smell ya later!
