Nice collection. Lots of great pieces mixed in. What is the caped figure to the right of the sandcrawler in your office? I can't quite figure it out. Like the mix of figures with cardbacks. I am thinking of doing something similar in my cabinet to cut down the reflection of the mirror.

Thanks chief Stormie Smiley  It has been quite a spend  so far! The mrs has put me on a monthly budget now, but its a good one Wink I try to buy small collection's easier that way for me, then sell the unwanted stuff i dont really collect on you know where, that gives me a little bit more spending money Smile

When I get on Lando we should do a coo compare or you should do a show and tell of yours on fotw Smile we need the extra info....?

That's a good point. I am not sure I have seen all of Andy's lando collection either. I remember seeing some of it somewhere, and remember the black neck poch and some others but don't remember where it was. unsure

Great collection, Mark. Well worth the wait! Laughing

For "only" 5-6 months of collecting, it's huge! You've displayed it well thus far. Love the 'crawler. And.. did I see "Thor"?! lol!

Very cool sketches. Are these just based on the character or were you trying to copy an exact picture? I haven't seen these exact poses before but I am unsure. There is an artist on another forum that sketches vintage figure portraits and does commissions. I will search out a link and send it to you if I can find it. I might be interested in a judge dredd piece.

Hi Bryan, The Hellboy came from a photo of the film online and the He-Man figure sketches i drew from the classic figures but they are my own unique sketches i only used the classic figures for reference.

Wow really you would like me do you a sketch? Of course i have never been asked before, my nephews have a few sketches mainly hulk stuff all original from me, but would love to do a Dredd Stormie Smiley Stormie Smiley

If you could find the link that would be awesome!!

And if anybody would like a star wars figure just let me know Smile i would be more than happy.

Mark, the figure cabinet with the the glass shelves, does it have lighting? What kind? I have a large glass cabinet and it has built in lights but they get very hot and are sucky. I am thinking of some kind of led strip of some sort but haven't researched it much. Just curious what you used.

Hi Bryan,  I have only been gone a day and so much has happened i need to catch up!!

The cabinet used for the figures is in our main living room, we keep family memories in there i only put the figures in there for the limelight. You are so right the bulbs in that cabinet are so bright and get very hot i would not put my figs in there incase they got damaged, they are actually in the picture with the door open just to the right some displayed and some in boxes i also have some in drawers..the pistures below are the cabinet (without figs),bulbs that are used in that cabinet and my boxed figs i dont take pics of figs were they are because its to dark to keep them out of sunlight/UV rays. Oh and led's are the way to go, they are perfect for bright but low level lighting they are under 12volts in the UK but normal spots/bulbs are 240v which is way to strong you can cook an egg on them!!!!


The last pic is an idea of your one off dredd, its only rough his arms dodgy etc and it will take a few more sketches till i get the right picture, then i colour and finish, but i just wanted to know what you think, i like the leaning against his bike pose, it just came to me, but i didnt know if you wanted something different, maybe just his head or with his gun etc....i will wait for your reply before i do the upgraded sketch of this one.......

That dredd pose is awesome. Feel free to add it to the dredd thread as a work in progress pic if you want. I would add it for you, but my iPad seems to have gone to crap so I am lucky to even type messages right now much less try to load pics.
