Always good to see. Thats why like 18-20 years ago I had a website focusing on detailed descriptions of Godzilla vinyls. The best part was the collection pics that viewers would send with their own write ups that I would post on their own page showcasing each.

Serious question: how y'all manage dusting this stuff?

Like just my tiny little stack of Godzilla dvds is a pain in the butt to keep clean and organized, I can't imagine maintaining these huge collections of figures in a presentable state.

I take mine all down every 6-8 months or so. Really not too bad, it takes a few hours obviously. It's just maintenance.

I keep as much as possible behind glass doors in display cabinets. It DRAMATICALLY cuts down the amount of dusting needed.

Heh, yeah, the dusting is obnoxious. The main problem in my house is the spiders, though. They're just these harmless, spindly things that aren't dangerous or intimidating in the least, and I generally like having them around to keep insects under control, but they build webs all the hell over everything. My collection is constantly getting festooned and I have to de-web it every few months.

I don't have anything against spiders, but if I suddenly woke up to spider webs all over my collection, I'd probably lose my poop.

Every couple weeks I go around with the air-in-a-can, and every 6/8 months I re-arrange stuff and do a full dusting then.

Speaking of spiders, guess I can share my own "horror" story of a spider in the collection. Was doing a usual shelf cleaning and got to my Trendmasters Ultimate Godzilla. Turns out a spider made a nest inside of its mouth/neck and when I began to clean, hundreds of baby spiders began to swarm. Quickly got a vacuum and began sucking them all up and took some good, warm and soapy water to the inside of the mouth and joints.

Godzilla Vs Megalon was my first in 1976, Damn I'm old.

Finally found a suitable home for those random, blind bag rubber keychain things. Managed to get all of the classic ones.

And had to make some room for Deforeal stuff.
