Classy!! Nice touch with the 1J banner, mine is still folded :cray:

Is that a back lit wall, or a window? If its a wall, how did you backlight it over a large area?

Love the way the VFs angle down and center for the most part. The best is seeing all those different stands doing the same angle depending on which side you look at.

Reminds me that there is no need to collect the same stand. Variety is good.

Great display!!!

 

....and thank you.

Love the mix of launch arms, yetistands, and yeti adapters for the dx bases.

@Slave IV I keep thinking that Boba Fett is about to fly through the glass. I've always wanted one of those.

It’s  the only Hot Toys I own. Had to have it!

i also love the various display stands @HayateAltoHunter used, especially the hybrid DX/Yeti. Not a fan of every Valk angled the same way because I prefer the variety to continue with the poses but I totally get what was going for. Very nicely done.

Luke is just some guy. I've never been big on action figures of regular looking people. I get the significance of the charater but the characters with the cool armor, alien or robotic designs are always more appealing to me. Boba all the way.

That being said, I am unlikely to buy any more Hot Toys...they look great but overall, not the quality and playability I was hoping for at the price they charge.

How dare you!

A whiny guy at that!:D ....Similar reason I'd much rather collect Valks than figures of the characters that fly them. When I was a kid, all my normal human looking action figures were cannon fooder and the badasses in masked outfits would be the victors. Usually ended up being between Snake Eyes and Boba Fett.

A whiny no-one who becomes a powerful jedi, and saves his dad while also saving the galaxy.

Shall I count the number of seconds Boba appears in the OT?

Totally kidding, I love both characters!

Just get Boba and put in in a display case with your Macross stuff so you can post it here.:D

As tempting as that sounds, I still haven't made my mind up. Luke was my greatest hero growing up, other than Superman, I guess. I really want to find a good example, at some point. See that's the trick, Mark Hamill's face is hard to capture. So i am waiting for the one that best resembles him.

So get Boba now and Luke when a good enough one emerges. :D

Just messing with ya;)

I just impulse ordered Kaname to complete my Walkure collection so as a preview of what’s to come, some pics of my old Delta Display with Walkure

Slowly moving my collection on new apartaments (: Half it there!

Looks good!  Not to disparage your display, but if you want a more invisible string, try fluorocarbon fishing line.  It's more expensive but thinner and clearer than regular mono line.

Are those Detolf's? Where did you get the pedestals they're on (I'm guessing IKA, but what are they called)? The main thing I don't like about the Detolf's is that the bottom display section/cube is on the ground. I like what you did there.

Can you take a close up pick of some of those cards next to the figures? What do you have going on there?

I can tell you that's the IKEA Klingsblo upright version. 

There's other display case options that you can find from Ikea and look through Craigslist if you want more variety and more budget friendly options.

My problem has been finding just the right stuff. I looked at everything new and couldn't really find what I wanted. Found some cabinets that are pretty good on FB. But I'm going to need more room.

Thanks!!!

So, these are modified IKEA Klingsbo cabinets, they sit on a TV stand i got from Amazon. 

 

I actually wish i had gone with the Detolf’s way back when as it took quite a bit of effort to take a metal saw to the curved bottom portion of the cabinet legs. 

The Detolf also gives more clearance between each shelf than these.

Thanks for the heads up.

 

BTW: We have very similar collections/tastes.
