2017 where the dust gathers....
« on: 06 January, 2017, 11:25:38 am »
Wotcha!

So was thinking it would be good to see updated photos of bookcases, collections and mancaves now that the Xmas hauls have joined the shelves, and a whole load of new dolls  action figures are out there.
Anyone what to start?
Colin?
I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man!

I have an extended ex-garage building that's going to be a man cave with comic storage, a retro gaming area and a bar with patio doors that lead out into the garden.


At the moment it's just a slightly damp room full of boxes.
...maybe I'll wait for the 2018 thread

I may have begun a man cave project by building two - YES, TWO - bookcases, and teasing it on on Facebook.

Expect completion in the spring, although I'm not saying which spring.

Yes teasing, teasing us so bad, you teasing teasey tease you.

I'm sorry, but I can't fix shelves to walls until I paint the walls, one of which has never been painted because it was a creation by our contractor, to cover a fusebox and other ugly things.

And I can't paint the basement until I finish the upper floors, which are all effectively a single space. Open-plan living seemed like a good idea at the time.

I'm making progress... slowly.

And it's more like edging than teasing.

The new Xmas stuff has largely been installed on my shelves, so here goes:


Star Wars corner - new additions are 1st Order TIE Fighter, Millenium Falcon, and Lego Mini X-Wing




Bookshelf - new Millenium Falcon cardboard model.



2000AD/cherished graphic novels shelf - new Globular Rad-Sleet Simulator!  :D

Okay, updated my vintage Star Wars shelves with a Rancor, a dewback, a taun taun and my final "last 17" figure, Warok the Ewok.  This is now a complete standard set of vintage Star Wars figure. Could pimp it out fully with a dianoga, a probe droid and a blue snaggletooth. Maybe next year.

My mini-cave of manliness has continued to evolve...apologies for the ordinary photos (low light).

North-side...within a year or two I will have to upgrade each shelf to hold 150 progs instead of 100 progs - which will give me a lot more breathing room.  But it's okay for now.



South-side...nothing much has changed with the vintage Action Man collection - space for one more figure.  Carrie's autographed photo a bit more poignant now.



West-side...again, not too much change.



East-side...big changes.  My mid-life crisis partially alleviated by a MAME cabinet.  Uses a refurbished PC.  Room on the wall for a King Carlos commission that I'm getting framed.



A better look at the cabinet.  The pinball plunger allows one to play...digital pinball games (funnily enough).



With the purchase of the MAME cabinet, had to do a bit of reorganising.  Resin DL-44 kit that I recently finished.  Bowl has 100 x US 1974 uncirculated one-cent coins.  Cost me a lost more than $1.00 - but nice to use with the gum-ball machine (now housing Jaffas).



That's it for now!
