Toy Haven 3 - Almost complete: check out my new place :) lots of action figures on display

continued from previous toy blog post...

Most of the figures have been put up at my new place (dubbed Toy Haven 3) and I quite like the look of it :) From Japanese anime / manga heroes like Astro Boy to Tokusatsu superhero TV serials (Kamen Riders and Ultraman) to Western TV / Film characters like Hit Girl from Kick Ass, Green Hornet and Kato, Iron Man, Wolverine, Batman, Superman, Russell Crowe's Roman General and Gladiator, Gerard Butler's King Leonidas from 300, Tom Hank's Forrest Gump and Saving Private Ryan, Johnny Depp's many characters (Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow, Benjamin Barker / Sweeney Todd, Tonto, John Dillinger), Brad Pitt's roles in various films (Fight Club, Fury, Seven, Troy, Inglourious Basterds, World War Z), Aliens, Predator, Marvel's The Avengers, Star Wars, Terminator, RoboCop... the list goes on.

That's the beauty of collecting 1/6th scale figures. After collecting for over 22 years, you realise that a lot of movie-related action figures have been produced and released over this period and I've been blessed with quite the collection and a wife who fully supports my hobby (some may say obsession LOL). She says the collection makes the house unique and is quite the talking point whenever we get visitors. Obviously, I agree with her totally haha. Besides the 13 IKEA detolf display cabinets housing most of the 12-inch collectible figures, there's also 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 has most of the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series 1/6th scale figures I own.

Awesome collection! Wish I had even just a tenth of what you have!

Wow! Dust can get into those cabinets though because they're not airtight. Do you have to take them all out and dust each figure one by one when they get dusty?

It can be quite therapeutic :) and I get to feel the figures every now and then haha If the display cases were airtight, it could mean a "put them up and leave them there and forget about them" mentality. This way I get to enjoy the figure every once in a while.
