Cool Collecting Spotlight - JayC's Man Cave

by Jay Cochran
September 20, 2020
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 Me who gives you a look at my man cave. Here is how I describe it:

I've shown you my main office before, but now I present you with a look at my Man Cave, AKA my basement. This area was always a place I used to shoot photos and film reviews. Several years ago I also turned half of it into a gym (which I really need to get back to using more often). It's not a fixed up basement, but I've managed to make it fairly comfortable place to hang out in. During this time of COVID, it seemed like the perfect time to make changes. I always like the house cooler than my wife does, who this year has also been working out of the house. So we decided with the basement being cooler in general, I could spend time down there without keeping the rest of the house so cool. This makes my wife happy, and it helps keep the electric bill down since the air conditioner doesn't have to run as much.

Of course the basement also has other practical uses, like where the washer and dryer are kept, and other household items. I had to come up with a layout that made all that practical, but yet didn't feel like you were in a basement as much. So i threw down some rugs, added a recliner, set up a TV, computer and stereo. I also got the Arcade1up TMNT arcade game that I had been eyeing for a while. I even installed a fish tank (something I hadn't had since college). Oh and of course I set up shelves for action figures to display.

I love these pics. Especially a big fan of anything Batman you have.

Great cave JayC, I like that you have Namor and Aquaman guarding the fish tank.

I have three cats in the house so I felt they needed adequate bodyguards

Got a pretty cool display going here. Do you have a particularly favorite section of the display or a favorite toy in the whole of your display?

Im a pretty big Captain America fan so the back wall of my main office is kinda like my Cap shrine

really like this it has a real human feel, and real people hang out here vibe, reminds me of my house, i can resonate with it, but we always knew Sir JayC was cool

Awesome lair!

Great cave JayC, I like that you have Namor and Aquaman guarding the fish tank. We don't have basements down south here either, wish we did. I guess we know when our collection gets oversized when we have to store some in plastic bens. I used to open or display every figure I got but now like you I have several that I haven't even opened yet. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! I always wish I had a basement for stuff like this. They aren't too common here in California. That is a pretty big space and you made it look fantastic with all the shelves, posters, and figures. You should be proud of that space, man! Thank you for sharing!
