So I wanted to share my collection with all of you for quite a while, and finally got around to posting it, woot!!! My collection has just started and I hope to do a grander display when we get a house in the next year. (Home Theater Room is mine, and the girlfriend has the rest...sounds good to me :lol )

Anyway, hope you all enjoy my collection!

Looks great man :chew :chew

Different from what i have seen around here. Nice display. One thing I want to add though is to replace that Hot Toys Terminator with the Sideshow T-800, just my opinion.

That has to be the most unique way I've seen anyone display 1/6 figures. Very cool.

Awesome collection! I like the way you've displayed your 12" fig in the first pic! How did you mount them to the wall?

gbtv01
03-03-2007, 01:23 PM
Easy enough carbo-fation, all that I did was buy a 'L' bracket and a round piece of wood (they are the approx same size as the Sideshow stands, just a little bit bigger diameter (painted black) and few screws later you have a stand, plus the figures are clipped to the stand so they will not fall off it either.

Picture explains better then words.

Great collection and very ingenious way of displaying your 1/6 figures :rock

Thanks for all your comments, and yeah, when I went to display my figures I wanted to do something a little bit unique and a make them have their own individuality by having their corresponding movie poster next to the figure.

And TOE, I can't part with Hot Toys T-800 just for the fact it is from the 1st Terminator movie (and the original movie getup...those 80's sunglasses are bad-ass:lol ); I was thinking about adding the Sideshow T-800 and get a T2 Poster for it, but then I was thinking about getting the Sideshow Exclusive T-1000, I think that would be a nice addition to the wall.

What do you guys think?

What did you use to mount the individual 12" guys? I've thought about doing that myself, just wondering what you used.

Very nice collection, and a very distinguished way of displaying your figures. Quite unique around here. Personally I'm not into 3 D posters, but that's just me. The combination of figure & poster works quite well though, and is often used as a display method. But the way the 12" are mounted on the wall, that's new!

Oh, man! I forgot about that McFarlane Jaws piece! Might have to snag one of those on the 'bay. (Sideshow's is great, but c'mon...The Orca!)

Great set-up, gbtv. I have to join the chorus and say how much I like to see unique display methods like this. Great job!

Very nice displays! I've been doing something similar with 8x10 photos and poster prints with my 12'' figs. I think it's a great way to display them.

Awesome!

I ordered mine at starwarsshop but it kept delaying. I noticed today they removed the item from their site.

Where did you find one?

Hey Socko, got mine off eBay from a seller 'colledge'. Excellent to deal with, not sure if he has anymore, I got this before Christmas.

thanks! Will search the internet. It's probably the best statues of both of them out there.
Polish it every day :)

The more I look at your collection setup with the Floating shelves the more I love it! I'm think I might take the idea off you... ;)

I already know I'm going to steal it... any hints on where to get the round pieces of wood? I tried at Wal-Mart today in the craft section and found everything but :monkey4

I've got a smaller scale display I want to use this for :monkey3

Wow...where have I been...too much Overtime :google , not enough fun posts or browsing the forum :(.

The round pieces of wood can be picked up at Kent's craft section I believe.

Life has been super busy for me as of late and I kinda dropped of the radar here and I missed all you freaks:D . But the non-stop aspect of life has been awesome where we have been building a house and making plans for my wedding to my beautiful and awesome girl.

So as I type this my house is finally almost finished being built so that means I shall have a home theater room dedicated to my figures as well, I have all my star wars figures for my display plan I have been thinking of and as well another lot of heading my way (Hot Toys Predator 2 and Hot Toys Aliens Alien and lots more). But the find that I am really proud over is getting a PF Vader and Obi Wan...oh yeah!!!:chew .

Hopefully will have pictures soon :)

Good job! This is how I picture setting up my "Collectibles" room one day! A figure next to its respective movie poster, to me, this is the best way to display them!

Awesome!

Very unique display, well done!

Yeah, I think all of us dream of having a "collectibles room" to ourselves to properly display our collections. I will get one of those rooms...finally....in about a month or so when we move from a cramped apartment to a much bigger house. I've been dreaming of my own room for my stuff for a LONG time!

Great collection, by the way gbtv01! I love those 3-D posters too. I'd like to get the ALIEN, Star Wars, and Robocop ones someday. I like how you display the figure in front of the posters. Very nice setup! :D

Nice movie figure collections! very very nice, I'm sure you spent a good time decorating all this. What's next?

gbtv01
10-12-2007, 11:19 AM
What's next...well I have been super busy again as of late...miss this board :'(...but finally back again and getting my own time back :D. Finally finished building the new house and moved in, I am doing the home theatre room downstairs as I type this (12.5 feet (W) by 20 feet (length) so I have a fair bit of space to play around with. The idea I am going with is 8 main PF's on black pedestals (one in each corner and one between each) displayed with their corresponding movie poster (went with the big theatre posters 27" x 40"). So hopefully I shall have it but together by Christmas :monkey5

The PF's I am doing are as follows:

-Obi Wan
-Vader
-Darkness
-Ash
-Michael Myers (please god let announce this one this Halloween)
-Hot Toys Ed-209 and Robo (I don not like the look of the PF version at all)
and 2 more I am still thinking about (alot of cash to just do a fast purchase...gotta think about these)
