Glad to finally have all of them on display, and loving them all. My Wolverine will be with me next week and will more than likely be sandwiched between Gobby and Punisher. So far I've been lucky with them, Punishers right arm doesn't fit completely in (some excess layers around the peg) but you can't see with his sleeves down anyway.

Your IM does not fit on your shelf...that does not make him happy that he is so close to the edge and about to fall off....you should sell him to me! :lol :lol

Ahhh OK, as it's a lady. Actually not a chance :lol

I tried to put Punisher or GR beside him but they're too damn tall, Spidey's in a similar position but his base is too big. Still I managed to squeeze him in.....as the nun said to the bishop.

Tell me about it, that would make me very uncomfortable. You need to at least get some DETOLFS fast! :D

Nice collection though Al!!

:lol...well you can't blame a gal for trying!! I shouldn't talk though...my Sauron is currently sitting on my computer stand headless because I don't have anywhere to fit him at the moment. He's a little bit pissed that Marvel is taking all the prime shelf real estate.....:lol

Well as I'm staying away from the non Sentinel Vs series, it allows me to focus on one auction that I must win...ahem.

I hope I'm lucky enough for the Cap. America EX waitlist....but I'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks all.

Al

P.S. Tony's always a bit drunk anyway so the whole edge-teetering thing is no biggie. :D

The Iron Man does make me nervouse...and it appears DOOM may be bending his foundation a bit..:monkey1

You have a nice collection man but you need some shelves or places to put your stuff safely. IM hanging off the ledge is asking for trouble, as well as Doom's foot hanging off. What if you snag it while you are walking by and Doom takes a leap to his death?:(

You have a really nice collection...but I'm going with the rest of the boardies here with a suggestion that you get some better display shelves pronto. It's scary seeing IM hanging off the shelf like that...Plus, I'd hate to see you come back on here reporting damage to any of those pieces...It would make us very sad :monkey2

A bit harsh - But I agree... The pieces you own are awesome and are expensive and deserve a display that is safe and well spaced... It's like buying $4000 bike and get a $20 Helmet - You just don't do it!

Great collection though!

I really would love to got up to PF... Just too much $$$$ for me a 24 yrs old... I'll wait till the Career is in Gear.

Well with Doom his entire base is on the shelf and the bookcase is completely away from most of the rest of the room, so there's no chance of anything catching it. Iron Man has 5/6 of his entire shiny body & base on the shelf and now there is something just in front of him on a lower shelf (I removed it for the pic). I appreciate the concern, but nothings going to wreck my babies :D

Anyone want to see my Guyver shelf?

that's some nice pieces you got there. I like the 2 Hulks facing each other too.

Cheers massf, I don't have many more items to get thankfully....I'm pissed about Wolverine though, UPS delivered him into the UK on late Thursday night and according to the tracking they attempted to deliver on Friday morning.....which is complete lies because

1. There's always someone at home &
2. Fridays are my regular day off.

So I just need to wait and see when Royal Mail will get him sent out, I have no idea how to get in touch with them regarding an internationally shipped item....so I just have to sit and wait :emperor

Though I should be adding another piece, a very important piece, very soon.

Well my Wolverine arrived today!!!!

HE'S FU*£%NG BROKEN!!!!!!!! :monkey2 :monkey2 :monkey2

His left leg has snapped off and the magnet on his masked head isn't glued in properly.....I'm so pi$$ed off, after waiting for an extra week and then for it to be damaged.

Hell.

Wow, it's been a while since I updated this....not that I've added that many pieces....well actually I have!

Pity I don't have a decent camera :(

Haven't taken pics of the other AH ladies or Green Hulk Vs Spidey EX dio....but you know what those are like.

Great additions, and awesome collection man! :clap

I saw that post about your Wolverine arriving broken some time ago, that must have really hurt. :monkey2 Did you ever get that straightened out?

alphatyrant
03-20-2009, 04:58 AM
I did manage to get another Ex comiquette, at the time there were still a few around. I actually still have the broken one, I have never done anything with it....it was a mess, snapped leg and an unglued magnet. Suppose a really good sculptor could fix it up.

Great Collection, I see Grails, If I had some extra funds I would take Wolverine PF Broken off your hands

alphatyrant
03-20-2009, 12:41 PM
Yeah, EX X-Men 1, Doom Ex and Grey Hulk are my grails....though I really, really like Blade Vs Drac, it's a massively underrated piece. Oh and Red Skull is a lovely item too.

Colossus
03-20-2009, 12:50 PM
I must have X-Men No, 1, But the prices are obsence on the bay, I have seen the Blade Diorama and it is Quite the Cool lookin piece

I just don't have the space :(


I see that you are an exclusive collector. Not a bad choice for you collection.

Mostly yes, there are a couple of standards like my Punisher PF and Iron Man, but tbh I consider myself lucky to have an IM comiquette at all, plus a SIM that took damn near forever to replace.

At the moment I really like the Blade dio as I've mentioned before....can't believe I nearly skipped past this one.

:lol:lol Just get rid of almost all your furniture and you'll be fine :lol

And though I was joking with the £10 offer I may have a friend who would be interested in that broken wolvie, if you ever want to sell :)
