Well , I'm changing this room around completely within the next few months so before I do I figured I would show you guys how the collection currently looks.
I've had a few bits since I took these but what the hell .

I will be modifying this room immensely.
Detolfs will be going straight across this whole side of the wall with a pf on top of every one. There is currently a carpet in here which at first I like but for some reason I hate now.
I will probably put wood floor down with my dad and paint the walls a white or cream color ( after getting all that damn blu tack off ! ). I will update you guys on everything because I want before and after / process pics anyway. Thanks.

thanks man , I hate the rooms look right now. With these cabinet things I feel like I'm in a warehouse and the room is really not big enough for them.
With a shelving unit in the middle and 3 detolfs on either side I think it should look alot better. :D

Sweet collection Tay!! I know the feeling of wanting to have a good display area and I want to change the paint in my room too, but I have only lived in my place for a year & a half so far.

I'm gonna start ripping up the carpet soon and will need some cash to fix up and buy the odd thing but I keep spending all my cash on figures ! :lol:lol

Heres a pic I took before trashing the place !. :lol
Still waiting for hudson , two new jasons. The predalien , a brown aliens alien and hopefully a p2 elder. Got a lot to look forward too. I'm hopefully gonna score a wolf after all this too go along with mr predalien.

I also had a shot at repainting Ripley's hair as I do not recall her being ginger !!!.
:lol This is my first repaint so be kind !. The ironic thing is I wasn't actually repainting her hair , just dirtying up clothes. I just figured I would have a shot !.
Let me know what you think. Still need to the eyes though.

top collection mate, the 1:1 face hugger gets top marks, you going to protect your collection so it does not get dusty?

04-07-2008, 04:25 PM
I'm sure I just posted a reply to this , the board might be acting up again.
Yeah , every two weeks I dust everything. When the room is finished everything will be under glass hopefully anyway !.

I love your collection just as I do your videos on YouTube. I really want a FvJ Jason like yours and a Curio Cabinet like yours. I just recently got my Pumpkinhead, but I hate the fact that he's packing and his head's a different color than his body!

I sadly had to sell that pumpkin head but got alot more than what I paid for it so I'm happy !. Not much has happened recently , I will take some update pics tomorrow. I have been very very busy , its my cousins christening this week too so I have to get some new clothes for that too. I did buy another new detolf to go in the collection whilst I was down near Ikea ( thats the official name for the cabinets you mentioned ). There perfect for 12" inch figures. And on top statues or another big piece.
I plan to cover the wall with the most of the collection , completely in detolfs ( maybe a cabinet in the center or even maybe a tv yet with a small couch facing it , cover the detolfs in figures and stick my 1:1 busts on top.
I will give you guys some pics in a few days. Great to know you watch my youtube videos , you have the same name on there right ?. Sorry if I seem ignorant , its just with so many people commenting its hard to keep track of names! :lol.
Thanks for the compliments ! :rock
My newest piece by the way , the 1:1 scale arnie ! :rock , fantastic bust.

05-18-2008, 04:50 PM
Yeah it really is wonderful , very very nice piece.
I have bought things like this and always said after to myself " that was alot of money to spend " but not on this. It looks like its worth a million bucks.
Thanks man ! :rock

Yep, I have the same name on practically EVERY site! I love your idea for the room and it sucks to hear about the price of the walls. I plan on re-doing/remodeling my room this Summer when I can start working.
My plans are to cover a wall in "Detolfs" to hold ALL of the Predators and MArines (if I can afford Hicks). Afterward, replace my bed with a Sofa-Sleeper or Futon and a coffee table. Also, get a Vizio 48" HD. Basically, convert my bedroom into my own personal Den or Living Room.
I like that Schwarzenegger bust. I'll probably get a Endoskeleton instead though.

lol , this has certainly been resurrected form the dead !.
Not been too well at the moment and still going for daily check ups at the hospital so everythings on hold at the minute , just waiting for the wall to get sanded down a little , a lick of paint and the floor putting down then it can all be thrown in.
Its come a long way from what it was from these pics ! :rock
Thanks for the interest fellas , I'll go as quick as I can so you guys can see it all quicker ! :rock:rock:)
