What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

Finally out of storage!

Many of these pieces are over a decade old, only seen the light of the day on inspection from Sideshow, just never had the space. We've moved recently and managed to wrangle a spare bedroom as an office space where I can display half my collection.

I've since bought remote puck lights and waiting on some custom perspex windows/doors fr the Stuvas, but very happy with how it's come out. I bought a chest of drawers and reduced the number of Stuvas as I wasn't happy with it being as uniform as per my design, but managed to fit almost all the pieces I wanted to in the setup.

Groot, Daredevil, Mk 3 maquette, Thanos and the new Spidey are all pieces I'm hunting for (by all means PM if you have any of those for trade as I have 30 other pieces available!) but you can see them in the mockups for placeholders and at the end of the pics I've ticked off what I could display. Hope you enjoy!

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?

I think going with the all white background is a great choice. It really allows the color in the statues and busts to come out.

That's awesome to hear man! Looks fantastic!

I can completely empathize with you. I'm currently in a situation where I can't display my pieces. Hopefully one day soon!

neat.

Personally i see much dusting to keep up the appearance. White works well
I'm building a stand for my 1/4 pieces at the moment. I'm thinking either black stained wood, or painted dark-grey wood. To keep the dust out, the plan is to use 5x pieces of glass from an Ikea Detolf, as i'm moving away from Detolf units for one reason or another.
