So far i have managed to dodge the virus. 4 weeks out of the work place is a good thing. Other than food shops, nearly all other shops are closed. Very few people out and about. December 2nd it is supposed to the end of lockdown, or it could continue it the numbers are not good.

Gentle Giant - The Walking Dead - Daryl Dixon 1/4
Gentle Giant - The Walking Dead - Maggie Greene 1/4
Gentle Giant - The Walking Dead - Michonne 1/4


During yesterdays slight shift around while getting ready for when the 2x Ikea Besta units
arrive, these three pieces by Gentle Giant Studios based on three characters from the
The Walking Dead, found a new home, on a unit just behind where i sit and watch movies.

I ended making a small snap-shot video, while the room was empty'ish. It did not take
long to put together, and helped kill some time while under COVID-19 lockdown.

Gentle Giant Studios - The Walking Dead - Daryl Dixon, Maggie Greene, Michonne

..i really need to get the art print, My Brothers Keeper framed.

At some point in the future, if the price is right, i might pick up:
Gentle Giant - The Walking Dead - Rick Grimes
Gentle Giant - The Walking Dead - Glenn (in riot gear)
Gentle Giant - The Walking Dead - Merle Dixon (zombie walker)

Should Gentle Giant ever decided to release some more 1/4 pieces from The Walking
Dead, i would recommend:
Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)
Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh)
Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt)

Species Sil Sci-Fi Concept artwork Original Transparency


Species Sil Sci-Fi Concept artwork Original Transparency


Hollywood Collectors Group - Species - Sil 1/4 scale

Back on page 48 i posted with regards to something called Species Sil Sci-Fi Concept artwork
Original Transparency. An item i picked up off of ebay, framed, and added some lights to. The
fact is, the lights failed to light up the transparency. Last night, i set about adding more lights.

Original failed lighting attempt:

IKEA - BESTÅ Unit x2 White with Glass doors (framed)

That was fun, assembling 2x Ikea Besta units.
I raised them up on legs, as i did not want them on floor.
I was surprised at how light the panels were (hollow?). Free standing, not attached to a wall, the
units are as not as stable as i would like. I ended up using screws to join 2 units together, to improve
stability. Over all i like them. The plan is to add two 1/4 scale pieces to each unit and put my two
1/3 Prime 1 pieces on yop, leaving room for a third 1/3 Prime 1 piece (currently on pre_order).

Ikea sell a piece of glass that can be placed on the top. I passed on that. I considered the idea of
adding a worktop of sorts. Something thick and chunky. It will cover the gap at the rear of the units.

Next step, to add some mini spotlights.

IKEA - BESTÅ Unit x2 White with Glass doors (framed) ..now with lights!

Added 4x mini spotlights. Took 3hrs, although that included having to find cable, and wire in
4 plugs. 20 screws in total were required. I am not sure why it took so long?

I think they are a bit on the small side. I put Red Sonja PF in one of them, and there was no room to fit a 2nd PF.
Out came Red Sonja. I will find 2 PF's that will fit in them.

Somehow you already have your problems with Red Sonja.
Sonja doesn't seem to really fit in anywhere

Yup. I have other pieces that fail to fit. I'll work on fixing the problem. Not selling Red Sonja

Prime 1 - Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) 1/3 scale
Prime 1 - Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) 1/3 scale


The plan is to add a work top so that Prime 1 - Zantanna 1/3 scale can join the gang.
I have a year+ to sort that out



HMO - Bounties of Bathos – REN 1/4 scale

Fingers crossed, HMO - Bounties of Bathos – Sorrow will fit next to Ren, forming a pair.



Yamato - Ritual 1/4 scale
Yamato - Luz Malefic 1/4 scale

These two pair from Yamato pair well, and fit the BESTÅ
Luz Malefic's is missing her cape, as it needs repairing.



H.M.O. - Bounties of Bathos - Sorrow (Aqua Edition)

Sorrow should ship sometime in 2021
