ToyHaven 3 – Work-In-Progress Report Part 2

continued from previous toy blog post...

I am most happy to report that the customised 98.5" L x 84" H x 19.25" D (2500mm L x 2134mm H x 495mm D) full glass display shelf which will be the centre piece of my new place (ToyHaven3) is coming along nicely :) Lots of stuff to put in and I'm not even halfway there yet LOL

The plan is to display Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series 1/6th scale figures because of the high quality finishing and superbly crafted pieces and it's going to take a while to get organised and choose which figures to display up front and which ones to be behind. The great thing about it being all glass is that I can also choose to display them back to back so that they face out on both sides. Still thinking about the many possibilities for display.

Scroll down to the rest of the pictures.
Click on them for bigger and better view.

One seldom gets to see the back of the figures when they are displayed against the wall so the full glass display has many advantages.

Batman has to be my all-time favorite DC Comics superhero, even the 1966 campy version by Adam West and Burt Ward :)

And one cannot collect Batman and not the Batmobiles. They go hand-in-hand. These are the ones that I really like from all the Batmobiles that have been released.

Then there are the Star Wars Stormtroopers, the assault troops of the Galactic Empire. Dissenting citizens referred to them as bucketheads, a derogatory nickname inspired by the bucket-shaped helmets of stormtroopers. They wore white armor over a black body glove which, in addition to creating an imposing image, was outfitted with a wide array of survival equipment and temperature controls that allowed its wearer to survive in most environments, but offered limited protection against blaster bolts.

There are just too many 1/6th scale Stormtroopers to fit into one display shelf so I had to spill them over to another display cabinet where I had the Clone Troopers line-up with Anakin Skywalker while four Stormtroopers protect Darth Vader, not that he needs protecting. I also like the Bounty Hunters gallery displayed above them.

More to come...
