Here's my theater. Feel free to critique... I'm all up for suggestions on the best way to frame in the "closet" section where my components are located...

AWESOME set up buddy!!!!

VERY IMPRESSIVE! Love your color scheme. :)

That is a huge room.

The CM pieces will fit in great with your set up. Very classy!!!!! I love how it is spaced out.



Great pics.

Man, everytime I look to your pics, I feed bad here

I am currently buying a flat with 3 rooms and 1 saloon which will be completed next year August but, after seeing your theatre saloon, I guess I will be selling my house and buy a bigger one with a bank credit

Great taste really

Which projector do you use again?

We should start a home theater thread on this board.


Great pics.

Thanks Gruson! The room is around 30 feet deep including dormers so I've got my seats 17 feet back from the screen. I would need around another 10 feet to do a "tiered" setup with 4 more theater seats. Never enough room for more statues though. It would be perfect if I had a 3rd dormer to put a 1:1 Endo in and another section of wall to expand on my Star Wars stuff.
I have the Sharp DLP Z-2000 with a 106" Screen Innovations screen.
We should ABSOLUTELY start a HT thread.

The color of paint I went with was called "Fine Wine" (flat) by Sherwin Williams. The color in person is a pretty dark red. Lighting is tough in pictures, but in person it looks most like the pic with my Sauron helm.

Thanks for the compliments... As I see you're a big Alien fan,,, I really cannot wait for the CM Alien to arrive. I "should" have it next week. My goal is to keep my 1:1 Alien Head, Alien Queen Bust and CM Alien all on the same table but I don't want it to look cluttered. Once I get that, I'll feel as if my collection is complete... At least until SS, MR or CM knocks my socks off with something else..

Thanks for the compliments Carbo... I would LOVE a CM Indy... It's just the way my room is laid out right now, I've got a "section" for each movie. I simply don't have the space without making things look cluttered. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.
I already have a 41x27 Raiders 1-Sheet in my office that would take around 30 seconds to transfer to my Theater. At this point, to add Indy,,, I would have to completely remove one of my current setups.

Does the closet section have some type of ventilation? It will get quite hot in there if you close a door and heat is very bad for those nice components.

As far as a suggestion for a door I would go with some type of smoked or frosted glass and a back lit silloute(know I didnt spell that right) on it of some movie related subject.

A very nice room indeed!!!!

A very nice room indeed!!!!

There is no wall seperating the two sections of closet. The middle section is wide open, so if I sheetrocked in the right side, there would still be plenty of airflow to the left of the components. To make them look seperate (for now) I painted the right side walls (where the components are) black.
I also have a component sized "ZFan" which sits on top of my receiver. My receiver barely ever gets warm.
A smoked glass front would look sweet. I would still need to have some type of a rack system built so the components could be lifted up a few feet (centered) and it would look good. Thanks for your input.

Already on order... I couldn't pass up that bust. It's going to be incredible and with only 400 made, it will be a good investment. I have NO idea where I'm going to put it when it gets here,,, but we'll see. Things are going to get pretty crowded on that little glass table with my 1:1 Alien Head, 1:1 Alien Warrior Bust, CM Alien and SS Alien Queen. :)

Sparrow is amazing, but with the limited amount of space that I have,,, I have to limit my collectables to my top 6-7 favorite film trilogys of all time.
Indy makes my top 7 list so I would LOVE to add him. It will be at least a year before anyone actually gets one so I have some time to plan for that. I might replace my LOTR area with my Sauron Helm with Indy.
I can forsee that I will be ordering some new stands in the near future (like Gruson's) to make for some more space without making things look cluttered. I really want to keep the look of my room as clean as possible.

Thanks,,, these pix are about 2 weeks old by now and the room has quite a few additions already. I got some new King Kong 17x11 prints to go beside my Rex bust,,, a Master Replicas Signature AT-AT (now Vader and Obi sit on each side of the AT-AT and the MR Sabers have been shelved) along with a 1:1 MR Predator Spear that now is mounted above my 14x11 Predator lobby cards. I just need to bug my photographer buddy again and take some updated pictures. I'm waiting to bug him until my CM Alien arrives... That bad boy is going to kick ass. It's been a BIG collectables month for me.

A bit of hard work has helped me out too... Life's good. I just wish some of you freaks lived near me so we could all hang out and enjoy this stuff together. My wife digs the pinball machine,,, but couldn't care less about my collectables.. :)

Like you, I try to keep my museum (which has been updated a lot since the last pics) with pieces from movies that I REALLY love.

As much as I love the CM Jack, I really doubt I will get it. It looks GREAT but Pirates is not one of my favorites....

Yep,,, I'm a drummer. I hardly play any more though... You wouldn't believe all the crap I got from all my buddies when the "40 Year Old Virgin" came out last year.... Not only did he have a bunch of Sideshow Collectables but the same drumset too... :)

These pix are already pretty outdated... I have since:

1) Added the MR 1:1 Predator Spear to my Pred area. Placed above my 2 framed lobby cards.
2) Added "2" framed 14x11 Kong lobby cards on each side of my Rex bust
3) Added the MR Signature AT-AT along with a new framed AT-AT lobby card above it. Vader and Obi are on each side of the AT-AT facing outward.
The MR Sabers got moved to my office.
4) Added the CM Alien to my Alien area. Sold my Sideshow 1:1 Alien head.

As of right now,,, I can honestly say the room feels "complete". I'll get some new pix to you guys one of these days...

It's fairly bright. We had the lighting in the room set just right though. It was pretty dark so it probably makes the saber look brighter than it really is.

Hmm, I guess I got a dud saber, mines fairly dull. Its bright at the start then goes paler till the end, where its abit brighter at the tip.
Oh and couldnt agree more :rock
I really need that treebeard bust. One of the best SSW pieces, and he's a personal fave character of mine

EDIT: I've come to notice another reason for my saber not being as 'impressive'. It came with scratches and marks and the like, so when its illuminated you can see them very clearly making it look like a stick, not a lightsaber.

Gorgeous setup pdx! However I actually like the cleaner ANH setup in the first pic unbroken by the AT-AT in the middle a little better than the new display. Fantastic AT-AT, I'd just separate it somewhat from the Vader and Kenobi if possible. Its still one of the best theater rooms I've ever seen.

Thanks again for all the compliments guys... It's fun sharing this stuff.
I have had a lot of people say how they liked my prior Obi vs. Vader setup better... Just wish I had more space to dedicate a single area to the AT-AT because I loved that setup with the MR Sabers too. Oh well, next house will have a 1000 square foot theater. :) Then I can justify getting the 1:1 Terminator. That's really the only piece I'm lusting after right now. I've been so close to ordering it and putting him behind the bar but then the bar would cover up that beautiful skull base,, so I just will have to hold off.
Here are a few more random Pred Maquette pix that we took that weren't listed on this thread. One of these days,, we're going to rent a fog machine and bring in a bunch of different colored light bulbs to really trick these pix out. Can't wait to do some really neat lighting and effects with the Alien stuff either.

I just received 1 of my 2 new Pedastals from:
http://store.casesforcollectibles.com/index.html
This is a very high black gloss seamless pedastal. Beautiful work...
Again, I can't get the lighting at all in my theater room, so this is taken with my Nikon digicam. The room is super dark and even with the lighting all the way up, the dark walls just make everything look like crap.
The second pedastal should arrive today or tomorrow via UPS. It will be 12" lower than the one with the Predator bust. Cleans up that area nicely.

Nope, that's just the reflection. It's VERY black and glossy. They really did a beautiful job with these. It's seamless, just like their acrilic clear cases/covers that Gruson uses. Pretty heavy duty too.. I would be comfortable putting a 50 pound statue on it.

[QUOTE=Gruson]Love it and glad it worked out for you. Good to hear they can support a lot of weight too.

Curious, what are they made of?
Good Question. It's some type of plastic/resin/acrylic material. For all I know, they might use the same molds as your clear display cases, just with a different type of material? I'll call them tomorrow to find out.
They sure packaged them well. I've got a 32-gallon garbage bag full of packaging material and peanuts left over after taking out the one pedastal. They also wrapped them in a ton of plastic wrap.

They are custom made... Not on the site anywhere. Contact Bob Brickner at
513-856-9475. He's the one that made them. Paid $203 for the tall one and $180 for the shorter one. Shipping was around $150...

Thanks man... No cases for me. It's one of those things where none of my other collectables have cases (other than my Signature AT-AT and Sauron Finger), so it's more to just be consistant with the rest of my stuff... Also, dust really isn't an issue as the doors to my theater are shut 99% of the time.

Contact Bob Brickner at 513-856-9475. Be sure to be specific that you're wanting pedestals made (in a high gloss black finish) and give them your exact dimensions. They can make them in any size for you. They're pretty expensive though. I know if you put a "wanted" ad on your local Craigslist,,, you could probably find a woodworker that would put a black high gloss laminate on MDF for you for a lot cheaper. That's what Gruson does and they look great.
If I was doing more than two of these,, I would definately go the Craigslist route. But I am incredibly satisfied with the quality of these pedastals.

I've had a fun time seeing my theater room evolve. It honestly hasn't changed much over the past year but that should soon change in the next month or so. I'll be selling my Alien Warrior 1:1 bust and Predator 1:1 bust. I'll be putting the new Star Wars Biker Scout on the table where my Alien Wall is along with an original framed Revenge of the Jedi poster.
The Cinemaquette Alien will be to the left of the SS PF Predator. I'll put the Predator 2 poster in storage and replace it with my Alien 1-Sheet.
Can't wait! Hope the Star Wars biker scout gets here sooner than later....

Thanks... My collecting styles have evolved quite a bit. I originally started with the LOTR Weta lines and had just about every piece they ever produced. I got into a bunch of the Gentle Giant & Palisades (Star Wars, Predator, Alien) busts too.. Probably had around 60 of them at one point. I even had the entire line of Sideshow 12" horror figures too (around 25 of them, never opened). Now, I just have what is in my theater room and a few other PF Statues in boxes in my attic that I will sell if I ever get around to it. The only PF statue I still display outside of my theater room is my Popbot Exclusive which is in my office at work. I don't think I'll ever sell my Popbot.
On the horizon, the only thing I have on order is the Star Wars Biker Scout. I would love to change out my "Sauron Corner" in my theater room,,,, just can't decide what to change it out with. More than anything, I would love a 1:1 Terminator Endo (the full version).

Incredible set-up - the framed posters with the dioramas work wonders especially the Terminator, Aliens and Predator and Star Wars sections.

One question: What frame size do you go for the framed posters? I have a about 13 posters all supposed to be 27 x 40 but they vary on and off a couple inches so I bought "one size fits all" frames and cut the posters down where need be (at just the white border).

All of my posters are original 1-sheets... 40"x27"...
For what it's worth, I've tried doing framing on my own for the 1-sheets and it just doesn't look right. When they start to "curl" in the slightest bit,,, they look tacky when the light hits them. Most framing shops charge $50-$80 to frame and dry mount the posters including a classy brushed black frame.
For my 14x11 lobby cards/prints,,, I just use a cheap frame metal frame from a craft store that closely matches the black frames from my 1-sheets.
It looks like you've already bought the frames but my recommendation would be to have a frame shop do it for you.

The wireless relay is crap... I run a single splitter from my subwoofer out on my receiver, one high quality cable direct to the sub , the other cable to the Buttkicker Amp. The one cable leading to the buttkicker amp is around 30 feet long (carefully run underneath carpet and pad so it's clean). Works beautifully.

Nah,,, not really... I'm pretty limited on space and want to keep the room as "clean" as possible.. However, I have seriously considered putting a 1:1 complete Endo beside the bar (or behind it)...

Do it theres one going for $6000 atm

Great Iron Man corner man! Are you thinking about the hot toys figures? Would be pretty cool flying in the air and let it appear they came out of the poster.

Just read the complete thread, your collection is amazing! The setup of the room is very cool, something I'd definitely want in the future. I love how you always get new stuff to keep it fresh, too.
Oh and that Batman poster rocks, I have the same one in my bedroom at the moment. :rock

To me,,, that's the fun part of collecting.. "Cycling" my items out. You're exactly right, keeps it new and fresh. I have never intended to stockpile statues just for the sake of having a bunch of stuff.
I try to keep each item for around a year, then throw it on ebay and take the cash to buy a new item. All of the higher end items typically appreciate so it's fun to make a couple bucks on the back end and still get a new piece to relace it.
I do the same things with my cars... I like to get a new ride every year. :) Now,,, if only my cars could hold their value like my collectibles. HA!

I'm running a 4-year old Sharp DLP... I'm still incredibly happy with it. I've told myself when the next bulb goes out,,, it's time for an upgrade. :) There is some amazing stuff out there right now for CHEAP.

Closing up (and rebuilding) a new rack has been one of my goals since I built the room. I would run a Z-Fan (component sized fan) on each component and I would be fine. I run a Z-fan on my receiver and it keeps it incredibly cool.

Yep,,, I'm in the Portland Oregon area.

I'm in love with your room. I'm currently using an epson projector, its ok for now, I just use it for watching downloaded movies on my computer and for haloween displays. Some time down the road I will upgrade and try and make a room as cool as yours.

Oh ya, where do you get all your framed pictures that complement your statues? They look great.

WOW!! Extremely well built and designed theater room!! Incredibly well laid out!! The butt kickers add that perfect amount of 'personal touch' that the subs would need to be overpowering loud to accomplish! I love every aspect of this room!! Congrats on a job well done!! The only idea I could think of for you inregards to what to do with your component area is enclose it with some fans to keep ecverything cool, get rid of the theater curtain and install a "picture window" display!! There are a few guys here on the board that have done that and basically it is just installing a sunken deep shelf above yoru now enclosed component tower, putting some glass up and then installing a picture border which gives it the illusion of a picture print but when you trun the lights on your display inside comes to life. This would also let you add another display area without taking up more of the room!! Similar to these:

Agreed,,, the component area has always been "incomplete" along with my movie storage area.
I hadn't seen either of those threads below. Thanks for sharing! The guy with the LOTR section was absolutely perfect and could be fairly easy for me to accomplish something similar..
Looks like I have a good winter project! Thanks again!

I had the room custom built when I bought the house around 5 years ago. Regarding collectables, LOTS of items have been swapped out over the past 5 years. I would never sell one item without another cool piece on the way to replace the one leaving. Honestly, there hasn't been a whole lot that's really got me excited lately. Part of the reason why the Batman bust was the first collectable I've purchased in over a year....
But it's basically looked like that since the day I moved in the house. I don't get to spend nearly as much time in there as I would like to...

Hey no worries man!! Always glad to help out!! Cant wait to see what you do with the space!! I know that as soon as I am in my own house (renting now) I will be doing a full custom movie/display room! I can only go so far in the place I have right now. Oh well!! I will be posting some pics of my room on here soon!! No where near as exquisite as yours but its comfy!!! I really enjoy the way you cycle through statues and collectables. I have over 60 statues now and it gets difficult to find places for them all. Especially since now I have turned to only collecting PF's, 1:1's and large comiquettes (unless something ridiculous comes along in smaller scale) so I like your idea of cycling!! Going to be doing that myself now!! Keep up the great work and hopefully will see something new in the spring!!
