Welcome to BatcaveToyRoom.com - a blog that helps collectors expand, restore, and protect their modern and vintage toys.
My name is John Sholtz and I'm an entrepreneur by day and a toy, comic book, and pop culture collector by night. Heck, who am I kidding. I obsess about those things all day long, not just at night.
From Hobby to Obbsession
I guess it has always been more of a obsession than a hobby. As far back as I can remember I have loved toys. From my Hasbro G.I Joe to my Gabriel Lone Ranger to my Kenner Six Million Dollar Man and finally my obsession with Mego's World Greatest Super Heroes and Kenner's Star Wars toys.
Why Batcave Toy Room?
This site is dedicated to collecting vintage and modern Geek Pop Culture and the movies and television series that inspire them. This site is also intended as a photo reference guide to collectors, for them to share their own experiences, and promote the toy collecting medium.
I started it in July 2009 mainly because I wanted to showcase my toy collection. Since then I've added over 500 articles, tips, tutorials, and photos to my archives here.
Since then I've also met an awesome community of toy bloggers who come together to collaborate, help each other expand their collections, and grow the toy collecting community. I have also become a member of The Dork Horde - a group of collectors who loves to talk about toys. If you would like more information on The Dork Horde go HERE.

Buy my Book
Just kidding. No book yet, but I do one day hope to publish a book of photgraphs of my collection through creative photographs and a collection of essays from myself and other toy collectors that discusses their obession with toys and collectibles.
