WHAT DO YOU COLLECT?
We'd love to film your collection and show the world.
The filming will give you a great memento should you either down-size your collection or lose it due to unforeseen circumstances. (Great proof to your insurer)
Drop us a line telling us about your collection by either responding to this post (by clicking onto the "comments" button below)
or drop us an E-mail: popcollectables@yahoo.com
Collectible or Collectable?
To clear up many questions regarding the naming of our show Collectible spelt with an "I" appears to be the American spelling. Whilst Collectable with an "A" seems to be the English, Australian and New Zealand spelling. Hence with our show targeted at an Australasian audience it will be known as POP COLLECTABLES.
Weta Collectibles who are a major collectibles company from NZ, and good friend to our show, spell their name with the "I" presumably this is because they are mainly targeting the U.S. market. I hope this clears up any confusion :)

CARING FOR...Comics

Field reporter Elinor (Elle) Lascelles has visited THE COMIC SHOP, Liverpool and investigated the best method of preserving your precious collectable comics to ensure that they will retain value for years to come. Her report includes an interesting new commercial technique from the U.S.A. helping comics stay mint for up to 50 years.
