This, my friends, is my collection (excluding my ForceFX Lightsaber). Yes, it may be small, but think of the potential. Currently, I have spent roughly $305 on it. The pieces are just sitting on my desk/dresser because my Curio is full (I'll get to that in a second). I've only been colllecting for about a month now. I had my interest in Airsoft and Wrestling, but those two hobbies have made a new friend.

Now, this is the rerason for my collection being so small.
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc155/cjk1000000/042408_18561.jpg

Over $1000 of Wrestling Memorabilia.

My future plans are packing up some of the wrestling stuff in order to make room in my curio. Also, I must buy a few more Curio Cabinets that will accomadate 12" to 22" figures. And lastly, I must, MUST buy a camera!

As a "Newb" I understand that I am subject to constructed criticism. Yet, all advice and comments are appreciated. I really need help with dust! Any suggestions or help with dust control would be appreciated DEARLY!

Thank you,
CJK

If possible, could we please get back to the Movie Figures? I came in search of advice, not Wrestling Rant.

UPDATE: Just ordered two rare figures! I suppose you'll find out when they arrive. Also, I will be moving some of my Wrestling Figures and adding my Movie Characters into the Curio Cabinet.

UPDATE: I "Curio'd" my current figures and moved the wrestling stuff down to a lower platform. I will add my little Venom and next characters as soon as they arrive. I would have been able to leave the top-shelf intact if it were not for Myers and the upcoming guy!

Nice collection man! Is the Myers mask in your avatar part of the collection as well? I used to have a whole mess of Myers masks from Cemetary Gates but sold them all.

No I do not yet own the mask. I'm getting it in June.

UPDATE: Today, after getting home from school, I discovered that my new figure had arrived. This is 1 of 2. I'll get back to that later. Here he is;
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc155/cjk1000000/050208_18281.jpg

That's right folks, my favorite Freddy; The New Nightmare Freddy! This being only my 2nd SideShow figure, was just as awesome as my first. I opened him up, and due to reports, expected the claws to be broken off. Luckily, everything was intact. The only flaws I noticed were a few white spots on his coat. This was taken care of with a simple wiping down.
I had a time trying to find a position for the stand. I tryed putting the metal piece around his waist, under the coat, but it made him look as though he had the ass of a horse. So, I lowered it all the way down and put it around his legs, which the coat covers. I played with several different poses, but I think that I like this one the most.
On another note, I packed up more of the wrestling figures and made room for Freddy, the upcoming "guy", and a future figure that I have in mind.
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc155/cjk1000000/050208_18271.jpg

I also received my SideShow Catalog, which is virtually free due to the included $10 Gift Card. This book is awesome and makes for a perfect decorative peice for a coffee table. I have yet to actually read it, but during a rather quick once-through, I was impressed. I have plans on adding the boxes of my figures and this book to a "mantle", if you will, above my bed. Thus removing the writing trophies, diecast model cars, and White Tiger Statue.
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc155/cjk1000000/050208_18282.jpg

Another piece that was not seen or mentioned in my last post was the Force FX Luke Skywalker ANH Lightsaber. I love this thing! I want a plexiglass case to sit over it though. Currently, it's just sitting on the floor since I'll be remodeling my room soon.
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc155/cjk1000000/050208_18291.jpg

Also, I made a few developments with my dust problem, but still haven't completely gotten rid of it. When I turn my ceiling fan off, dust doesn'y seem to collect as quickly. I also taped up the hole in the top of my curio that allows power to run to the internal light. Now, no dust reachs the inside of it.

I now need some small, almost tiny lights to put around Freddy's base to light him up and give that eary effect. I'm looking for something with, roughly, the diameter of a quarter. If you all know of anything, please let me know.

Thanks again for all comments and advice,
CJK

PROGRESS REPORT: I filed a report on the eBay user who ripped me off. They contacted me saying that they had to find a new box for shipping and I can expect the figure some time before 12 days from then. So, I'm going to give this a bit more time, and if, after 2 weeks, nothing changes, then I'm going to contact her again demanding my money back.
Also, I'm currently bidding on all of the parts to assemble the Hot Toys P2 Predator and the Wolf. So, if you have any Predator parts that you'd be willing to sell, just offer up.

Thanks,
CJK

Good work people. The only problem is that I need a P2 Head Sculpt. I have the body and armor coming. I also need the netting. But, good news. I just got my new figure in today and made some renovations to the room. Check them out.

In my opinion, things are moving along pretty quickly. Got the 2 Preds on the way, and I start working soon. This means that alot of stuff will be rolling again. Also, I will be getting a better camera!

He's Here!!!
That's right folks. WOLF is here! I just received him and assembled him. Now, I dont know if it's because he was my first Predator or what, but it was a PAIN IN THE ASS to assemble! Almost nothing went smoothly for me! The leg armor wouldnt tighten, the left arm wouldnt go on, the netting wont roll all of the way down the arm, the groin cloth wouldnt go on properly, the spear wouldn't clip into the holder, the neck piece would maintain a even position, he wouldn't stay balanced while standing, his mandible werent even, and finally, his mask wouldn't go on properly.
After all of that, I finally got him together and displayed and I have to say, he looks KICK ASS! IF I can just fix his left sleeve, he will be worth it all of the way. Advice to those who have a short-temper or are angered easily; either dont nuy him, or have someone else assemble him. I nearly threw the body across the room when trying to hoop the elastic band through the netting! Hopefully, my future Predators wont give me such a problem, such as P2 and Celtic.
Here are a few pics of what Wolf did to my room;

Ok, two confirmed figures. Hopefully (and doubtfully) my Grandma got me a Digital Camera for my Birthday yesterday. Here's some trivia for the two figures;

1st Figure
Redesigned by Tom Woodruff Jr.
Played by tom Woodruff Jr.

2nd Figure
Has been featured in films since 1980
One of the most iconic symbols in film to date
Portayed first by Ari Lehman

Probably pretty easy this time!
