    I know some of us have mentioned the "Trio" before.
    Some of us here are even lucky to own all of them. I thought it would be cool to post some pictures of them all together. Maybe even start a thread with multiple CMs in a pic, like the Alien vs Pred pics that were recently posted. Mods, feel free to edit/move.
    I just got done setting them all up together and wanted to share some pictures. (I really need to buy a tripod too)
    I will work on some more shots at some point (some POV ones too) but here are a couple to start with of my new arrangement:

    These are all must have pieces IMO and look amazing together.
    I look forward to more pictures from everyone soon! :)
    Quick question, how do I post the larger pics? I know you used to be able to click on it to make it bigger. Originals are located here:

    Yep, so far the ultimate salute to the greatest SciFi creature designs and the crowning for the home cinema, thanks for bringing it up. :king:
    I'm on the mission once again to get the cases done for my remaining Alien and T-800 pieces, though I need to find some kind of solution to activate the T-800 lightup while under the plexy dome. Any ideas? :hmm:
    Hey Jeff, check out Steve's Tutorial Video for the use of the Highslide effect!

    Jeff how do you get that very directional, localized lighting in your pics?

    Thanks,
    I really like the shiny endo...always wanted it that way.
    As for the lighting, I have track light installed in the center of the ceiling. There are around 10 lights on it that I can move into any position and angle. I then bought some narrow, 15 degree bulbs so it highlights only the CM and/or posters.

    It's very effective :top:

    the lighting makes a huge difference, do you remember where you got the track lighting from?

    I was hoping ypu would say lowes or home depot, yeah I would love to see what you have, I have a lot of man skills myself, pretty much wired my whole house inside and out. Righ now I have Fn in my collection room with track lighting on it, but there is only three lights and they dont work with spots, they only work with floods which suck..

    Good you are making headway Raf, but wont that be tough having it at a different house, you cant gaze upon them whenever you like, but then again going to see the pieces could be an expierence in itself....

    That is so true, everytime i walk in the room i love seeing them , if this happens i will have to drive 20 min, to be able to see them, then again we do go there 2 to 3 times a week, spend weekends there , since its not rented, and my daoughter just moved back here, so cms will be londly if i do take them there , but i reall want them to show better then where i have them,

    I hear you, I would love to have a bigger space to show mine as well, ideally I would like to have grusons set up, to me that is the best of the best... A movie theater full of CM's,,, too cool

    i agree jeffs set up is the best, actually my house does not have a huge area, , actually might be smaller then where they are now but will be better placed i think, when we got the place i wanted a bigger one that actually had an extra BIG game room and man when i saw that i said this will be my gallery even before i new of cm, but couldnt afford it , :cry: but this will due, i just wish i had an eye to really make the display right, as for right now if it does happen they will just be on the pedestals,

    I like the pedestal look alot,I yhink as far as Cm's it is the best way yo display them, although if you could get a custom made cabinet that was as big as a whole wall and glass, that could be pretty nice as well

    Thanks for the compliment guys!
    When we were looking for a new house, a media room was a must have for me. I would not even look at a house if it did not have one.
    If I had the money, I would love to build a bigger theater room and have the CMs displayed in wall in their own sections, with their own lighting, etc.
    Too bad that's not happening...

    Yes gru, that would be be ideal, cut outs in the wall with there own lighting source, with glass in front, but to me I always like to be able to see around 360 degrees of a piece or at least 180 degrees
