Macross Collection Display Thread


Recommended Posts

This came in today. Not bad for $88 shipped. I searched the entire internet and couldn't find a Roy for under $500. I ended up ordering a Max for $88 and I'm going to try and paint it or commission someone to paint it. I'll probably do it myself.

It doesn't look this dark in real life on top of the cab. It could use a little light though.

Haha, make sure you pick up your certificate for Enabling 101. Points go to @dafunguy for planting the seed, @Kicker773 for always setting the bar high and @505thAirborne for the link to finish the job.

I just dug around some more on the net and found a Focker helmet!!!!

I'll have Max, Hikaru and Focker on display!:yahoo:

Nice, I saw a Jolly Rogers inspired one at the manufacturer website. Insane how much they want retail and how much less the ebay seller had them for. Hmmm...oh well.

Haha. "Enabling" suggests that all this is bad behavior and we are steering you guys into making bad decisions  ...  which I don't believe is the case.  Instead, I would say we should all get certificates for being "supportive".

I don’t have the most extensive collection, but thought I’d share my random collection of hi-metals, DX frontier valks and DX 1s

 

the little IKEA lights help

Is that a BESTA Ikea shelf? How does your display look with the glass doors closed?

It is a Besta shelf, but I have the white painted glass doors, so not the best with doors closed... you can only see some shadows on the glass with the lights on.

Not dissing your display! It's nice! I wanted to purchase that diffuser myself so the LED strips would look more like a light stripe than dots.
