    Hey Guys I managed to find a few pictures. Please excuse the poor photography skills. I will definitely post up some better ones in the near future.

    Oh whoa! Awesome. :dance:
    We've seen lots of display here but not many that physically drop in to the walls like this. Was this achieved with some sort of false wall?

    Thanks. I had them framed up like that when I had the house built. I wish I would have done them a little differently now but at the time I wasn't sure what I would be displaying.

    Great collection Joseph. I see you've everything displayed very nicely in your movie room. I'd like to have a movie room like that someday :top:

    Thanks guys for the comments. I had several more Sideshow pieces that I had in my office area but I have a baby on the way so now my office is the nursery. I've sold off about 15 pieces already because I just don't have the space for them. I fear the lotr PF's will be going as well once Vader gets released. Possibly even the Legend stuff. I'd still like to get Sparrow and Superman. I have to agree that for a 1/4 scale piece the Sideshow Sparrow turned out nice. Its just hard to be satisfied with them anymore knowing that's there's a better representation out there.

    Once I found out that vader cm was to be made I sold my sideshow one, but I don't think I cand get rid of my legend darkness, as for sparrow you really have to go with cm. It is way way cool

    Ah, the benefit of hindsight. Still, the room is a great achievement and shows what can be accomplished with a little forward planning.
    We really are spoilt for choice on CBD when it comes to all these different displays. :love:

    Extremely impressive.. Very very classy indeed.. I would do my whole room like that if I could, just built in shelves all over the room.. I have debated many times turning my closet in the collection room into a built in display area. I would literally be able to display my whole collection in one spot... Good job my friend.. Oh and btw not to shabby on the theater set up either,, :lol:

    It gets pretty loud. I just got a new subwoofer that helps out a lot. That's the reason my CM certificates are all crooked. The two 7ft monoliths that flank the TV are just for two channel music. Thanks for the compliments.

    Thanks. It's really ideal when floor space is at a premium. I wish I would have done them a little different. Maybe one space for each piece. I may go back and modify them in the future. Thanks again!

    Ok guys I finally got my camera back from my sister and will be putting up some new pictures tomorrow hopefully. I also just received Indiana Jones. I won the really cheap one that was on Ebay recently($810). He looks brand new and I'm really impressed with him. He beats any of Sideshows hands down. I decided to move Aragorn and put Indy in that case instead. Its a better fit for him. A slight problem occurred while moving Aragorn, though. He kinda spun around on his base scratching up the bottom side of his feet pretty good. Nothing you can see when he is sitting on the base and the base itself looks fine. I'm just kinda bummed because I know they're there. Are any of you guys this picky when it comes to having your statues perfect? I'm talking about little out of the way imperfections you don't really see when on display but are there nonetheless.

    :party: Sounds like a steal to me, a very worthy addition to your fine collection. I'm tempted to pick up the CM Indiana Jones in the near future myself. What are your impressions of it? Do post a mini-review here. It never gets tiring hearing the opinions of others on a newly acquired CM. ;)

    Believe me when I say I know how that feels like. I get very picky about having all my collectibles in mint condition and dust-free. I've spend a good chunk of money on acrylic cases and displays to keep them that way.
    Somehow when you know there's an imperfection there it just doesn't feel the same - sort of like getting your first scratch on a brand new car. :lol: some accidents can't be helped tho.. Good thing that its not noticeable..Maybe try touching up the foot to cover the blemishes? that might be a fun project and might help with your conscience. :top:

    Congratulations Joseph. :indy:
    The Indy CM may not have the Ford smirk, but it’s a fine collectible nonetheless. For a while there Raf was making replacement Fedoras – he may still have some around, so it’s worth asking here.
    Don’t forget to post the edition number of your CM Indy in the Roll Call. :thank:

    That’s right, mini-reviews never get boring. I wrote a longer review of the piece, what, two years ago now...? and it can be found in the Reviews Section.

    There’s a thread about this from a while back right here which may be of interest to you Jospeh.

    It occurs to me that there are three types of damages. In order of severity – least annoying to most annoying…

    1) Damages that are noticed on opening the piece, where the owner has the opportunity for a refund or exchange.
    2) Damages that are noticed sometime after the piece is opened and displayed with enough time elapsed so that the owner cannot opt for a refund or exchange.
    3) Most annoying of all: damages that the owner causes themselves.
    The sad truth being that any damage caused yourself hurts much, much more simply because there’s no-one else to blame! And Tim’s right, it doesn’t feel the same somehow, because the owner always knows the damage is there.
    However, it’s important to keep things in perspective. If the damage doesn’t affect the presentation of the piece, or isn’t noticeable except on close scrutiny it sounds like you’ve had a lucky escape.
    This is quite a poignant topic for me at the moment as I recently noticed two tiny scratches on my Alien’s dome which bugged the hell out of me. So much so that I couldn’t look at him for a few days. But eventually I realised that I’ve loved the beast for three years or so without even noticing the marks, which told me something about how much importance I should place on them.

    Raf should be able to advise further on this since he’s taken Aragorn apart. :luck:
