A few of those at the top are toys you could buy at the dollar store.
I used to own a couple when I was a kid.
>>
>>4528074
Implying i care about any of those companies.
Most of this thread is obscure crap. No one here knows what it is.

They are statues as far as i am concerned, and not the good kind of statues.

>>4528074
Pretty much yeah.
>>
>>4528080
This. I saw a ton of these at a local toy shop for 5 bucks each.
>>
Why don't you guys post some collections you think are nice instead of just complaining?
>>
>>4528100
Because you bitch if its not hipster crap. And many others will too. Collection threads are shit. No one dares post theirs.
>>
>>4528100

Post a collection that is not "hipster crap".
>>

>its a clusterfuck!

>weeabo trash

>boring, shit collection
need i go on? collection threads are dead and there is no saving them. no matter what some ass hat or a lot of them will be cunts and ruin the thread. there is no point. the people have their collection set up the way THEY want it, not the way other people want so it will cause a shit storm.

>>4528574
I wanted a visual image of that pleases that person taste.

I understand what you are saying, but it's not like I have trashed somebody else's collection. I agree it would be pointless and should be very personal.
>>
>>4528583
That's a pretty sweet case.
>>
>>4528583
Thats a pretty cool little display. Was it meant for lego or is it re-purposed.
>>
>>4528635

It's a generic shadow box. I added in balsa wood for the shelves and painted them black to match the frame.

Thanks. The room doesn't have THAT much black though. I guess it's just that picture. Here's what the entire room looks like (older picture, I've updated some things obviously).

Probably the best toy version of the character IMO. Couldn't be more pleased with the purchase, even though I paid assrape scalper prices ($45).

Ive seen these posted before, looks really nice. I like the floor is it laminate or concrete? I have my carpet in my office / toy room and I hate it.

>>4528661
What is this jet looking thing you have up on a flightpose?
>>
>>4528688
I'm not 100% sure what the floor is. I think it's some type of old ass tile. When my wife and I moved here over the summer, I painted it grey with garage floor paint, then put a layer of garage floor sealant on it. The original colors of the floor were a mix of burgundy, charcoal, and brown. It was just as hideous as it sounds. I figure the paint on the floor will hold up a year or two until I save up to get the floors redone.

Also, the jet on the flightpose is Shattered Glass Megatron.

being this ignorant
wrong, the fact that the shelves are on different levels are what make the display look good you fucking pleb.

I gotta ask about that fire escape. where can I find one of those. I love the look of it with the turtles.
>>
>>4531380
Type in "Fire Escape Shelves" into eBay. That's where I got it from. Was about 100 bucks.
>>
>>4531384
Definitely not worth $100
>>
>>4531384
awesome thank you
>>
>>4531389
So spending hundreds of bucks of that exclusive repaint is worth it, but spending 100 dollars on a shelf to display those figures isn't worth it.

Do you display your figures on 20 dollar Wal Mart shelves?
>>
>>4527981
Not tasteful in appearance, but goddammit would I kill you for those cartel figures.
>>
>>4531356
Where'd you get the stands for the coins?
>>
>>4531908
Ebay. Just type in "Coin stand".
>>
>>4528583
What's the damn purpose? The ugly Lego style only works when you use the figs with Lego displays.

Your logic is confusing me. So you're saying his shadowbox looks bad because Lego things only look good with other Lego things...even though the shadowbox is filled with nothing but Lego things...

no wonder there's so many posts about not having a GF on this board.reading all the whiny picky and overly opinionated comments,i can only imagine just how crappy it would be to hangout with,much less date some of these people.

N-no thanks
>>
>>4532966

>>
>>4527983

I literally don't get the crit this display is catching. Other than being a bit dusty it's a perfectly acceptable display of retro-esque robot toys.
>>
>>4528712

Will those string lights cause any damage to the toys long term? That display looks very nice.
>>
>>4533014
Thanks man. They are LED'S they are less damaging than incandescent and far less damaging than sunlight.
>>
>>4533011
If you aren't paying $70+ for imported robot toys, /toy/ wants you to commit seppuku.
>>
>>4532924
That wall bugs me too, but the way it was build makes it damn near impossible to paint even edges unless you're a professional or have really steady hands. I'm neither, so after redoing it about 3 times, I just settled with what's there now.

>>4532474
Typed in "Red Lego Spaceman" into google images about a year ago and found that picture among thousands of other shitty pictures.
>>
>>4533197
Masking tape?
>>
>>4533209
>>4533209
Bought 3 different types of painters tape. The room was originally a garage, so the wall is a bit uneven. Therefore, paint would leak through gaps in the tape no matter what I did.

>>
>>4528680
What's the name of those black shelves with the glass in front of them would kill for some stuff like that
>>
>>4534425
They're two Ikea Besta units pushed together with Glassvik doors and Inreda shelves installed.
>>
>>4533011
I hate to use the term, but it reeks of "hipster." They're most likely modern reproductions of original toys (or even just inspired by them) and it's highly unlikely that anon grew up with him, giving him no emotional connection. They're there simply as shorthand to convey his "vintage" tastes to anyone who might be impressed by it.
>>
>>4534396
I recognize that chick. She has a nice collection overall, and she also makes them. I think that photo was from an interview she did for her own design work... She works at pinterest now.
