What's the point of building an awesome collection unless you can show it off to everyone? Because of that we've launched what we hope will become a weekly segment here on Toy News International where we spotlight you the reader and that cool collections you've put your time, space, dedication and love into building up.

For this week's edition we are spotlighting 80force who gives us a look at his collection he has been building trying to recapture his childhood. Here is how they describe it:

I grew up not having brand toys, my mom would just get bootlegs because we simply didn't have the money. Most of my dads family was in the US and at some point I started getting all the cool gifts for Xmas! Alot of X-Men, Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Sega Genesis games, TMNT, Thundercats, Transformers, Robocop, Street Sharks, etc. I moved to the US in 98 and I brought up some of my things with me, unfortunately at some point my mom said " I gave all your toys away" I was so crushed inside but I played it cool. My other part of my toys a friend borrowed in high-school for a project and never saw them again. One day I was walking outside my apt and saw a TMNT 2003 figure and it sparked me to find more (this was in 2015?) Since then I've been trying to get my childhood back haha. I love art, so I grew up with comic books and I love a good design. The nostalgic part of me likes the old figures but the artistic side loves the newest stuff. How lucky are we to live in a time like this? The quality and resemblance of the new toys is just unreal. Anyways here's where I keep my stuff.

Thank you!! I'm still working on organizing better, I'm on the hunt for a nice TV console with some closed storage to hide my extras and cables. Also a desk where I can work on my art and maybe spread some figures. Oh and eventually finish painting that door haha.

The room is organized "tight", really nice. That's how I want to do a game system station.

You have inspired me to make it happen!!!!....Finding the room is another matter =^)

Again...Nice room set up....

This has got to be one of the nicest rooms I have seen. I love how everything is displayed properly and organized. The posters are in frames, the nice painted walls acts like a nice accent as well. It has a lot of awesome stuff but does not feel cluttered in the slightest! Amazing! This is my favorite thing on this page seeing everyone's set ups!
