Collectable Spectacle is an eighteen part documentary series about toy and comic collector Mark Bellomo. Mark is the author of many Toy Collectible Guides ( The Ultimate Guide to G.I.JOE 1982-1994, Transformers Identification and Price Guide) and has amassed an immense toy and comic collection over the last several decades. His knowledge of nearly every toy line introduced to store shelves over the last 30 years is amazing. I met Mark through the www.yojoe.com forums and decided to fly across the continent to film him as he prepared to photograph toys for his 2nd edition of The Ultimate Guide to G.I.JOE. What followed was five intense days of toys, toys, and more toys.

I hope the inner child in anyone watching these 18 episodes can feel young again.

Episode Breakdown:

Episode 1 - Mark visits his two favorite comic and collectible haunts where he talks shop with the owners.

Episodes 2-6 - Mark and I visit one of his storage lockers and spend hours reliving Christmas morning with every new box opening. Star Wars, He Man, Transformers, Justice League, Smurfs, theyre all there.

Episode 7 Mark visits an old friend where they discuss the concept of collecting and how the children of today face a different world of entertainment than we did as children of the 1980s.

Episodes 8-10 G.I.JOE fans rejoice. On the eve of photographing all the new vehicle photos for the 2nd edition book, Mark walks us around his garage where hes set up every G.I.JOE vehicle from 1982-1994 and talks a little about their history.

Episodes 11-12 Two 14+ hour days spent photographing every G.I.JOE vehicle for the new book. Plus a look at the original new cover design that never made it to print.

Episodes 13-18 Mark and I return to the storage locker and dig deeper into the abyss. Hey its Christmas again!
