UPDATE: For viewers watching these videos for the first time, this massive G.I.JOE collection no longer exists. Aire, the female collector in this series sold the vast majority of her G.I.JOE collection in 2014 to multiple individual collectors. So please consider this 18 episode series as a visual record of one of the most impressive G.I.JOE collections ever assembled.
Collectable Spectacle is an eighteen-part documentary series showcasing Airedevon's action figure collection.
A special thank you to Airedevon for opening up her home and allowing me to film her collection. Both Mark and Airedevon LOVE toys and they LOVE the joy those toys bring to children and adults alike. They both put themselves on film to SHARE their experience and knowledge with others who feel their passion. They both have spent decades of time, money, blood, sweat, and tears to achieve their collections, and now they are inviting strangers into their world to experience it.

( *Collectible is commonly spelled with an " i " but is also considered properly spelled with an " a ". I chose the " a " version for aesthetic reasons in the title. Just thought I'd clarify that.)
