Macross Collection Display Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi all! You guys have such awesome stuff!

I got back into collecting Macross toys around october of last year after a long hiatus. Anyway, I just wanted to share the stuff I've been able to acquire since then: (I know, long way to go for me haha.)

(I don't have a proper display cab yet, but here's how everything looks so far :D)

Wow. I love these Cyron Lights. Thanks Skullmilita!

It's really easy to get in there and the amount of light you get is fantastic. It pushes light all the way down to the third shelf. I also love that you can just stick them in and rotate the tube to get max coverage.

Plus the strobe and color change is awesome.

The only thing I would change is add a wireless remote :D

Here is my current set up with the lights off:

Here's my current shelf. Sadly over the past few months I've been selling off my Macross stuff in favor of 1/6 scale figures and TF Masterpieces but it looks like that Ozma YF-29 is begging for a spot on my shelf.

That display is so damn clean you can eat off it. You have a great eye for arrangement.

plastic your collection looks great but it begs for some custom made cabinets.

For my tastes it is light too dark but I guess that is personal preference.

Sadly Hot Toys stuff does nothing for me. The only thing I kinda like are the Iron Man suits but only if I imagine them as 1/100 versions of some Super Robot. :D

Yeah, I think I posted a picture somewhere else... But it's 08x (robot), Takara first run (dino), and a Hasbro (robot). I probably look it that section the most haha.

My lady friend asked me once, "What if you came home from work and all your toys were destroyed except for one. They all had a fight and there was only one winner. Who would it be?"

I thought a second and asked her, "Is this based on show/movie power levels, or actual toy durability and strength."

She said, "They are only as strong as they exist in the real world."

I thought.. and I said, "Grimlock would win. He's heavy, tough with a good amount of metal and he could take big bites out of everybody else."

Though.. that was before I got my Hot Toys Hulk... but anyway he's my favorite toy. haha.

I threw in another set of four lights in the bottom to add more light down there. I ran all the wires and tidied them up this weekend.

I think I might buy some larger sets and run them on the sides or something.

Might be somewhat related to the thread :

Was looking around for a display cabinet (used to have a detolf but looking for a smaller alternative for my reduced-size collection) and found this :

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90085702/#/80085707 (white is cheaper, $25)

and the glass doors :

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40104091/ (the most expensive of the three, $35)

and glass bases :

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70104103/#/70110038 ($5 a piece)

They come pretty cheap. Good thing is, ikea Billy bookcase system come in larger sizes (height and width), like the one used here :

I'll double that BIlly bookcase. I just bought one last week from Ikea as the detolfs were out of stock. Didn't get the doors though. Was looking to get something cheap.

Got the wider one about 86cm long. Gives you any height you wish to add per shelf. Imo, they're a good alternative to detolfs. You just don't have those glass sides where you can look at your collection from all angles. Front's good enough anyway.
