Very nice collection Jen!!! And you've only been collecting since November? Incredible!!! :D

Spent my whole Christmas bonus on figures....unfortunately most of the figures I have I had to get off of ebay which cost me more than I care to admit! I can be rather obsessive and impulsive when it comes to
collecting....hopefully I can get some self control since I am running out of room! :lol

Nice collection Jen! But these where just the easy ones! Wait till you get around chasing "the other items". You know, those that make you wake up at night, all covered in sweat. Items from an other dimension, practically impossible to lay your hands on: The WiKi crown, the Orc Legion Helm, the Balrog, the Moria Orc Archer, the Moria Orc Warrior, the Witch King in true form, ... I'm probably not mentioning half of them! But that is part of being a collector: the chase! And it looks like you are a very good hunter. I'm looking forward to hearing from your forthcoming catches!

Someone please call an ambulance!!! :medic

I've had my eye on a few- The Balrog and the Witch King (in true form) but they've been a little out of my price range...but someday I may cave in. Right now there's a balrog on ebay going for $1225. http://cgi.ebay.com/The-Balrog-statue-Sideshow-Weta-lotr-lord-of-the-rings_W0QQitemZ220088785240QQihZ012QQcategoryZ8693 5QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem It still has 7 days left....can't imagine what the final price will be.....damn...I need to win the lottery!

I hear you! Since I'm lurking for a Balrog myself for years, I know the drill. I used to bid on many balrog's on the Bay, but I'll never ever do it again. I know how fragile this beast is. Imagine paying $1000 plus for what appears to be a damaged piece? And don't count on Ebay to help you when you've been ripped off. The only way I'm buying one of the big ones, is after an personal inspection. :date

I can wait.

Perhaps I should start a petition to get the last one SSC has in their offices? A Balrog or a Cave Troll, either one will do. I belive they still have a Cave Troll... And, I know it sounds crazy, but in the last two or three months, SSC has given away two (2) WiKi crowns!!!! How crazy is that? Ahhh... a dagger in my heart...

It's been a long time for me too. I was really into them when I was in 3rd and 4th grade...had all their albums...collected their bubblegum cards....as an adult I've seen then live a couple times and it was always a good show...but it has been a very long time since I last played one of their albums. Got the DVD for nostalgia...brings back a lot of fun and crazy memories.

Thank you! Just got Boromir yesterday, so I can now place him next to Legolas and Aragorn....I'm going to check out the Seattle Comic Con at the end of the month and will hopefully find more good pieces there to purchase.....After watching 300 I'm getting an uncontrollable urge to buy more collectibles from this movie....that is never a good sign...means my wallet is going to lose. Well, atleast it put up a good fight. :lol :lol

I also currently live among boxes....but one of these days (as soon as it stops raining) I'll clear out my storage locker and finally have some room for all my boxes. :lol
I don't think I could ever sell my figures....it would break my heart to part with any of them....if I had to start selling off things it would probably be my book collection. But even that would be hard to do.

Killer Wolf

[Lyrics: Glenn Danzig]

I'm the wolf
I'm the one you want
I'm the killer wolf
I'm 'onna pound you home
I'm the wolf
Howlin' all night
I curl up next to you
When you're all alone

When I go inside your little girl, and I do
When I go inside your little girl

Just one kiss, yes
From my lips
Rake your soul
Over burning coals

I'm the wolf
Howlin' all night
I'm the king wolf
I put the chill in your bones
I'm the wolf
Hunting you down
I ain't no back door wolf
I don't scratch at no doors

When I go inside your little girl, and I will
When I come inside your little girl

Just one kiss, yes
From my lips
Rake your soul
Over burning coals
Just one touch
From my love
Make you howl
'Til the sun comes up
I'm the wolf

When I go inside your little girl, and I will
When I come inside your little girl

Just one kiss, yes
From my lips
Rake your soul
Over burning coals
Just one touch, yes
From my love
Make you howl
'Til the sun comes up
I'm the wolf

Howlin' all night
I'm your killer wolf
Whatever you want
I'm the wolf
Howlin' all night
I'm your wolf

The Marto does not break down into separate pieces... I guess they decided it would be way to dangerous. Even though you aren't supposed to play with these, people do. And if you hit something the pieces of the blade could go flying like little projectiles into the unsuspecting :google

Also, I'm sure it would be a logistical nightmare to design!

I was looking into getting an acrylic display for him. :) Though I am still hoping I can find a nice display cabinet in my area that would be deep enough to place him. And then have a mirror back so all can see the back of his beautiful throne. If that happens he will be on one shelf alone in all his glory. The other two Doom pieces would be on a separate shelf. I'm getting rid of my computer stand so I now have room for such a cabinet....I'm just not having much luck finding any that would work.

Looking good, Jen. Hulk really dwarfs those Ghost Rider maquettes!

Besides Captain America, what else is coming? Your collecting seems to have really slowed down...not that that's a bad thing.

So far just Capt. and Darkness....and hopefully the Thor vs. Loki piece whenever that thing finally comes out.....I'm saving a shelf or two for hopefully some new Hellboy pieces when the second movie comes out.....It's pretty much all Hellboy and Marvel for me....so until Sideshow starts releasing some new figures, I'm on standby. Which actually has been a bit of a blessing because I'm finally getting some bills paid off. :)

I always like looking at your collection Jen. Awesome variety.

I've got a question for you as a collector. I don't know what you paid for your Ikea shelves but if you could find a display cabinet that was lit, glass shelves, full glass doors, without the view obstructing wood frame in the middle, and you could actually pick the color of stain on the wood, what would you pay? Let's say for one about 60" tall and 36" wide.

Just curious.:D I'll be making a few of these for myself in various sizes and I'm wondering if other collectors would be interested in it. Since your one of the few I've actually seen buy their shelving specifically for their collection I'd like your input, please.:monkey3

I paid around $160 for the Besta shelves. My other (smaller cabinet that does have glass doors) was around the same price I believe. It's hard to say how much I would spend on a cabinet.....I like IKEA because I've never had any problems with them and they are reasonable priced. Once I finally get around to buying a place (which could be awhile) I would like to splurge on some really nice shelves or preferably have shelves built in......I suppose pricing would depend on the quality of wood, it's appearance and craftsmanship.......I would be very interested to see photos of your cabinets when they are completed! :D :D :D

These shelves seem very sturdy to me. I don't have time right now to take a pic of the shelf bracket but can do it after I get back into town. The brackets or those typical metal pegs that stick out and hold the bottom of the shelf. However for shelves that will be carrying more weight they come with brackets that you screw in for extra support. There are also wall brackets of course to mount it to the wall. I haven't put my wall brackets in yet. With Hulk on that bottom shelf that cabinet it incredibly sturdy. I think my whole apartment would have to come crumbling down before that baby would tip over.

Great collection Jen, especially for having started only in November. I love Lord Of The Rings myself. I've got the Sideshow 12" Aragorn, Legolas, and Boromir figures. I've got a few of the smaller Toy Biz LOTR figures too, and the official "one-sheet" movie posters for each movie.

Hey, Adam (cocoboloboy) I may be interested in one of those toy cabinets you're talking about making! But please check your private messages for a PM from me tonight about an AlIENS marines shelf I'd love for you to make for me. Thanks!

You say that now. It happens like that. You think you finally have what you want. Then BAM. Along comes another Sideshow PF. Thor. The Submariner. The Silver Surfer. You start stressing. Where will it end? When will it end? What to do. Spend money on a psychologist, psychiatrist, even a councillor. No way, you need money for the next object of your desires. Yeah yeah, move to a bigger apartment. Bigger bills, bigger rent. You start collapsing in on yourself. You become agitated and paranoid. ........and that's as far as I've got. I'll let you know what happens, when it happens. So far I'm still in the game.
