Not too fond of my job, but I do like that I get to display my toys and make a little 8' x 8' space of zen for myself. Just mixed up the arrangement today, I'm digging it.

Like the selction from the 12 inch, 1:1, dioramas and props. Wish i could do this sort of thing at work but then if i did i would spend all my time admiring them. 12 inch ben is amazing, you've got the perfect pose.

Word. :rolleyes:

Actually, I do trust my co-workers, and I've left notes to the cleaning staff to leave the cleaning to me. :) I've been thinking of posting cubicle pics myself, so maybe now that the gauntlet has been thrown down, I'll at last get around to it.

Still, MaulFan's selection is cooler than my own... :rock

Looks good, but not sure if its the best pose for your Predator :lol

Looks really clean and neat Sean, just what I always try to shoot for!

Hey, I think you need to wake up Predator, either that or he appears to be wasted.......:lol

MaulFan
02-13-2008, 01:25 PM
Well, Predator's not for display, YET, still playing with him in photos, I brought him in because a couple co-workers saw the box in my space and wanted to see it, they were both very impressed by it.

As for cleaning staff and co-workers, thankfully, as much as some peers admire my stuff, no one would want any of it, but it's also a small, 30 person company and the president is a family friend so if something did go down, I'd get restitution. If I worked somewhere else, I'd be less inclined to put up so much.

It is distracting, but in a good way. When I get frustrated or whatever, I can just sit back for a minute, check out my stuff and mentally escape for a few moments.

I struggle to be creative when I'm not surrounded by stimulus. Collectibles and music help me tap into the right parts of my brain.

Thanks Josh. I typed out Rocky's speech to his son from Rocky Balboa, about taking life's hits and moving forward and going after what you want in the world. Helps to remember that when I feel life hitting me.

I have a 3 part desk, I only photographed 2, I guess the best word to describe the other is...cluster**** :lol, it's been worse. I find sometimes cleaning things up and all helps me balance out a bit so I was cleaning up today.

Ahh a quote from a Stallone movie, Sean, you're the man, we see alot alike!

Good stuff!

That's how my desk at home gets, sometimes I get so involved with my figure pictures, I just keep stuffing things aside and then one day I unbury it all an it's like, ohh I've been looking for that lol.

I knew that it was familiar... can't believe I missed it. :lol

Rocky was always inspirational to me. I run harder than ever when I have that soundtrack blaring in my ears. And that speech was something I took to heart as well when I saw that movie.

IMO you don't even have to like the Rocky movies to love the music, a definite MUST when exercising!

Not at all, my company is like a big family, I know everyone and I don't have to worry at all. I've been displaying collectibles in my space for over 2 years now. Most items catch attention, some for being a bit disturbing, like T-800's half torn off face, that got a few ladies a little, can't wait til I add Palpatine 1:1 into the mix.

My only concern is, will I want to use any of the things on display for photos or anything because I don't want to cart it back and forth a lot haha.

Oh, I totally agree. Just hearing that music... seems to hit you on a subliminal level, and you do your best to push harder. It's almost as if that memory of the film is so engrained in your mind and the american psyche, that you feel that spirit of determination within. I love it. Helps me every single day when I run. Especially at the end when I do my last set of pushups and sprint towards the finish line.

No steps here in my neighborhood, but it's the best I got. :lol

Well, I don't run as often as I should, but when I do it's always to Rocky music, and I've pretty much arranged tracks in an order that matches to how I set the treadmill up. I usually finish out with the music from Rocky IV when he's running up the mountain, granted it's Hollywood magic, but the imagery of a guy pushing himself to that limit is still powerful and very helpful when I'm at that point where my legs feel like they don't have anything left in them and my breath is running out.

After I saw Gone In 60 Seconds, I was hooked. I remember at the time, most of my peers at school and all were big on Fast and the Furious and the cars in that, but I was in love with the look of Eleanor and that movie. I'll probably never own a '67 Shelby, but maybe someday I'll own a 2007 Shelby which looks a lot like the old school Shelby's.

Have you seen I Am Legend yet? Theres a decent portion of the movie where Smith rips a brand new Shelby throught the streets. It sounds AMAZING and looks cool too! :lol

You should rent the original Gone in 60 Seconds (1974), IMO it was a better movie than the Cage remake, the action is unreal for its time. Its by HB Halicki. Since you brought up Fast and Furious what did you think about the Charger in that flick? Man I LOVE Chargers!

I found the cars in F and F to be a bit superfluous, BUT, my town, totally unnecessarily, has a Dodge Charger, 2006 I think, for the Police. It looks badass. I haven't seen the original Gone In 60, but much of what I love about that movie is Cage, he's one of my favorite actors.

Sweet set up MaulFan, that's great that your boss allows you to display your collectibles, I wish I could do the same at work. Anyway, great job on the set up, I can see how having Yoda there all the time can be a form of stress management when things get hectic at work, he is so calming to look at in that pose:D

I'd like to display stuff like that in my office, but it's not that big, I have to share it with another guy all the time, and I don't have much shelf space:

I think the bust will make you want to strike out at your boss with all of your hate more often than you did before getting the bust :D
