Krakajac - some pretty impressive shelves there!! You've inspired me to maybe put some more of my vintage Star Wars stuff out. My figures are largely consigned to my Darth Vader collector case.

Moly - sorry, I don't do commissions. I just don't have the time! Plus I only create when I feel inspired/get the urge. I've tried painting and suchlike to order in the past, and find it sucks the joy out of the creative process. I just love the time and freedom to make stuff on my own terms.

That said, I've posted some 'how to make' stuff up here and elsewhere - maybe you could have a go yourself?

I posted a few 'in progress' shots on Tumblr recently if that's any help:

Some great stuff there love the sensitive Clegg, werewolf judge and monkey on his cloud, did you make them yourself

A few of the figures on those shelves have their own making-of threads on this very forum (if it hasn't been done yet, no doubt someone will post links soon enough).

lovin that clegg, had a go sculpting a few years ago  (hellboy bust) but never seemed to get it right ,didn't know to use a wire frame or to pad the thing before putting the clay on....might give it another go when we finish our house sorting/cleaning

Anyone one else want to show off their geekdom?

Good luck Hawk! (you've made me realise once more I desperately need to move out of London and stop pissing away money on renting a 1-bed flat, if only so I can buy more beautiful comics).

Unfortunately house buying in England rarely goes through without a hitch of some sort, but good luck with it.

I'm not sure you should be saying that in public?

Anyone who owns a 1990's Forge figure can't be 100% evil.
