Couple buys furnished house, stunned to find it stuffed with geek treasures

Imagine if you bought a fully furnished house and discovered every piece of geek treasure you ever imagined? Well ... 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, Superman -- those are all big franchises, and serious collectibles for those properties can fetch a pretty penny. So you wouldn't expect to find them just lying around, now, would you? 

Surprise! That, apparently, is exactly what happened to a family who recently bought a house. While it's unknown what circumstances could leave such a treasure trove left in perfect condition in a house, it's likely not a very happy story. Either the previous tenants couldn't pay the bank and had to leave suddenly, or someone died and had no family -- just incredible toys and art.

The family who have inherited all these wondrous items have no idea what do with them, apart from selling them, naturally. And, as of now, that seems to be the plan. So! Take a look at the gallery of items below -- there are multiple life-size characters, commissioned art from Kevin Eastman and others, and what appears to be props from the original Ninja Turtles movie.
