Great set up! For Darkseid, have you thought about the DC Direct Who's Who C&C statue? While not a true figure, I think it would be a great set piece and it seems to be in the right size.


No, has to be an action figure. I am a bit of a purist that way.

Here are the first 2 pics of my Hall of Armor. It is a modular design consisting of heavy cardboard boxes 5" tall by 3" wide by 1.5" deep. The boxes can be set side by side in a line on a wall or in a circular pattern as depicted in the comics, and also stacked. The concept allows for the figure to actually be packaged in the box on a card back with a plastic bubble over it. It then becomes figure and playset all in one.

I am not happy with the figure, it looks too much like a gunslinger, but that is the best it will allow, it will not stand perfectly straight like an empty suit of armor.
For the cardboard I used an old notebook binder. Recycling is free, saving money for more figures. It is also cost effective if retail manufacturing.

So my question(s) to Hasbro are: I came up with this idea in a matter of hours, don't you have a department of people who are supposed to come up with cool ideas like this? Why didn't they? (and) Why are you still paying them?

and one more for now. I managed to get 4 complete boxes out of a single large binder with enough for 3 base/top plates and either a back plate or the 2 side plates.

Well I lost my 4th auction for a Validus, but I don't feel so bad. My top bid was $40 and it went for $41. I couldn't do anything because I was at work and the firewall won't let me in Ebay. The auction ended just after 5 and I got off at 5:30. But the other auctions have been ending in the $70's to $80's, so the high rollers seem to be thinning out now and the price is starting to drop. Maybe the next one.....

Sorry about the Validus auction. I feel your pain. But there will be a next time.

I liked the Armor Vault idea. You need to incorporate some "stuff" with the suits. You, know, back ground "stuff" like Kirby used to do...

It is still a work in progress, those are unfinished boxes, purely structural at this point, but you can see the concept. I still need to find some good pics from the comics of the layout I remember in my head. I don't even know my color pallette yet.

One thing to add to your armor boxes is get some clear plastic and use that as glass

I don't remember the version I am trying to recreate having glass, but I am still looking for the image.

I got 4 more Iron Man figures tonight, including Classic Iron Monger.

This just looks cool, especially cosidering he is too big for the standard base that is included with him.
