Jumbo Machinder Display in Philadelphia

Posted by ChemicalEggs 
Hey guys, thought you might find this interesting:

This is a short interview with the owner of The Hub (where I work), but the interesting part is the picture they chose: him in front of the Jumbo display I have there. We opened this location in May and there were these great display cabinets waiting for something...my boss knew I had a Japanese robot collection so he asked if I wanted to put some in there. They are a big hit, we get a lot of great comments on them. Check it out!

That is a damn fine display and it must be great to see it everyday at work.

Super sick business you work for and even sicker display!! Love how the bases/shelves almost "float". Major props for getting vintage as a prime centerpiece in your work environment. I'm sure many of us wish we could get something even a tenth of that size display going.

Also, another toy display I saw as I walked around Old City (309 Cherry Street, if you're in the area).

Great pics! Thanks for posting 'em!
That's cool that your display got some press! It looks great. Any reason you have your Getters separated though? Seems unnatural to have all 3 and not put them in a row! LOL

That's weird and awesome that you just found a window with a vintage toy display in it.

It's great that you stumbled upon that window display but there's no way I'd put my stuff in direct sunlight. As it is now I don't ever open the blinds in my toyroom.

More giant goodness in Philly. Not Jumbo Machinder, but definitely Jumbo...
