I recently finished a MASSIVE collection room reorganization and wanted to share it with other collectors on the web. And, most importantly, to get some feedback on what you guys think. So, please, do comment!

Admittedly I'm not entirely familiar with Marvel's present comic continuity; I don't read comics (aside from a few of the more recent major events, of course). Which is why I decided to display in a more simplified manner (Avengers with Avengers, Hulk with Hulk, Spidey with Spidey, etc.). Any help with regards to proper figure placement would be cool...

It's taken me roughly a year to situate everything in its current arrangement. I've did my best to arrange things so as to keep all the figures as visible as possible. With all that being said, lets get down to it!

Here's a few quick overview shots of the room:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Dragon Ball:

Image

The Dragon Balls are solid crystal and are actually quite heavy (comparable in weight of a pool ball). The stars are actually engraved on the inside. The cool thing are those little grey bases; they have orange LED's installed in the the center of them. When the lights are off and the bases are switched on, they illumate in the familar orange Dragon Ball glow:

Image

DB figures:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Transformers:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Superhero Showdown Vs. Fin Fang Foom:

I plan to supplement the SHS with some of the new Marvel Universe 3 3/4 inchers. That is, if I ever find them.

Amazing. That has got to be one of the best collections I have ever seen.

I'm extremely jealous of the Cable and Deadpool Marvel Legends figures (never was able to get my hands on them)

But wow. I can't imagine the coin you dropped on that. Especially all those Sentinals. My wife is pretty cool with what I spend, but man...I'd be a divorced man if I had that collection.

Pretty sweet.

Hey, thanks fellas. Your comments are much appreciated. You know, It's nice being able to share this crazy hobby with others who can appreciate it. Thanks.

And Bunger43, believe it or not but I managed to secure the majority of those Sentinel's through various trades; only purchasing 3 or 4 of them myself.
Actually, I'd say atleast 50% of my collection (save for DCU/DCSH stuff) is the result of trades. I did, however, liquidate a vintage transformers collection as well as a large Dragon Ball Z Manga/DVD collection to finance chunks of my present collection, too. But, yea, I've burned holes in my wallet in the pursuit of this hobby; the wifey gets on my case sometimes about it, too.

I was going to ask the same thing. If they are legit, I bow down to you, sir.

Regardless, great collection and a fantastic set-up. I love that Ark Reactor.

Not only is that an impressive collection but it's really well organized and displayed. Great pieces in there but I"m more jealous of the space that you have to display them in. I'd say at only one point maybe 2% of my collection is actually on display.

Your collection is unreal. One of the best I've ever seen, for sure. I really like the way you have everything organized, from the groupings to the shelving units themselves. Also, love that Marvel Legends mural. I hope to one day have my collection displayed in a similar fashion.

Thanks for the feedback, DK. It's kinda cool knowng other collectors dig my set-up. My little sis was kind enough to hook me up with both of those murals. They did wonders to those bland, boring white walls. I love em...

My bad, 20silence. I completely missed this post.

Those are actually both customs. The first being Modern Luke Cage. He was frankensteined/customized entirely from scratch. He's the result of a bunch of different figures; I'm not entirely sure of the recipe. I never cared for Toybiz's classic, yellow costumed first appearance Luke Cage and opted for a Modern look instead:

Image

Image

The other figure of interest is Patriot of the Young Avengers. He was one of four figures included with the Marvel Legends Young Avengers box set that came out several years back:

Image

Image

He under went a head swap (Marvel Legend Professor Xavier head, alittle paint, and scuplted mask) to better capture his modern appearance.

Image

The rest of you guys,

You sure know how to make a dude blush! *smiles* Thanks for all the feedback and
comments. Got a question, shoot! I'll answer it best I can.
