You’ve seen his fantastic photography and enjoyed his collections, and now you can get to know this week’s Collector Spotlight: TNJT! He enjoys all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dragon Ball Z, and Marvel! Have you seen his The True Gohan Pt 2 photo story? It shows off not only his figures and photography capabilities but also his storytelling skills! You might be asking yourself what TNJT stands for. Well, we’ve broken the code and it couldn’t be more clever — They’re Not Just Toys! Now that you’re in the know, head over and give him a follow!

A young TNJT’s first collection was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures his mom bought him. Even though he donated most of his childhood toys, he kept a few he found unique. However, his passion for TMNT is strong and continues through to today. Head over and check out his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles album for some sweet pics of the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures (wow, that’s a mouthful)! TNJT’s passion for items he finds unique has carried on throughout his life in various ways. Want an example (or a hundred)? Just check out his collections!

TNJT likes to get hands-on with his collection — he doesn’t want to have things that aren’t meant to be used or played with! His most extensive collection is poseable figures that assist him in his photography hobby and passion for storytelling. A quick look through his albums shows he’s VERY talented at both photography and storytelling! The stories he crafts are as funny as they are clever. If he’s not collecting figures, you’ll find him amassing things that connect or cross over different interests; for example, his Marvel Hip-Hop collection, Blu-ray collection, and board games.

We already know TNJT is a unique collector based on the combination of his many talents and hobbies, but why does he think he’s unique? Aside from some TMNT toys he doesn’t open and the framed objects he collects, everything else he collects is meant to be watched, read, touched, or played with. We’re so thankful TNJT has found an outlet for his talents on Gemr. You never know what he’ll post next!

As if he didn’t already have enough hobbies and interests, TNJT has a bucket list of things he would like to accomplish if he didn’t have to sleep. His list includes working out more, cooking, writing, and learning either Mandarin or Tagalog. We’ve enjoyed getting to know more about this talented collector, and we hope you have too! Head over and give him a follow so you never miss a thing!
