  1. Yeah. You would need a HUGE map to accommodate even multiple scout class figures.
  2. Check :thumb I have one of every Heroscape set with unique terrain - Marvel, the castle, the ice, the lava, the roads...just got the jungle set for my birthday, but haven't opened it up, yet. The Movie Autobots vs. a Marro invasion is on my list of dioramas to set up. That would rule. Even cooler would be a G.I. Joe set...it would be more compatible with the others, I think. I tried creating custom Transformers for the game, using micromasters, minicons, and Legends figures so that they were vaguely in scale and could actually transform. It was fun, but the concept needed work, and at the time I lacked the kind of devotion to the idea that is required, and the space to keep a Heroscape map set up for any length of time. Now, however, I do have the space for a map...:schin
  3. It started out as "Cobra invades Dinobot Island" but, man, that little "set" I made out of Heroscape fills up quick and too many Transformers just looks cluttered and disorganized. I've got more Heroscape and other "playset" items, so I'll probably do something like that in the future, but the other night I only had about an hour to play around before I had to do more productive things with my time again, so I just went with "Prowl and Snake Eyes training in the woods".
  4. OMG that's AWESOME! Very nicely done! Heroscape, eh? Must look into. Congrats on the toyroom, BTW, I'm jealous. We just bought a 3-br house w/ a finished basement, and I still don't have a decent space for my TFs and diecast cars and military figs/GI Joes, etc. Enjoy and remember those of us limping along with only shelf space... Thanks. We just bought a 2 bedroom townhouse with a "bonus room" on the bottom floor by the garage and a "loft" space upstairs. Since it's just the wife and I, we have designated the second bedroom as "The Library", the loft is "The Study" and the bonus room downstairs is "The Dungeon"...where I keep the toys. I swear, it's like we live in the Clue Game Board. The Dungeon isn't gigantic, and we have to walk through it to get to the garage. Plus, the water heater's down there (opposite corner from the toys, there is no danger of them being destroyed by a leak or anything), so that means, there's just enough room left over for the shelves all my toys are on (in stacked Rubbermaid cases, mind you, not "on display"...cuts down on the space needed) and that card table. But I put down a nice area rug so I can sit on the floor and play when I want to and will use the card table as a rotating "display space" to leave out the stuff I am currently enamored with and want to fiddle with/look at a lot. I think I'll be very happy with it. The previous place we were renting was pretty tiny, so not only did the toys have to be stacked in Rubbermaid cases, but they had to be put up when not in use or completely take over the house. As soon as the whole of my stuff is unpacked, organized, and decorated (I've got some old G1 checklists I want to have framed and hang on the wall down there) I'll throw up a couple shots of the collection residing in it's new home. Great Hound shots, solidspeir. I want that toy so much.
  5. I'm new to taking pictures of tiny things close up, so there's some focus and lighting issues in the following post. Forgive my noobishness and enjoy. As part of my continuing G.I. Joe/TF Animated Crossover fixation: Also, I recently realized a lifelong dream: A room strictly for my toys. A sanctuary of plastic love. And part of that room is a card table set up in the corner where I can safely leave my figures set out for as long as I wish without cluttering up the living spaces. Naturally, my geekery has forced me to set up a diorama on this table...and so I bring you: "Ninja Training Interrupted".
  6. Post your thoughts on him. Whats up with the buttflap? Picked him up on the way to work - which is where I'm at now - so, he's still in the box. :tfsad I'll post some thoughts on him later tonight, hopefully.
  7. North Hollywood Target at Victory and Vanowen has 1 Animated Ultra Magnus after I took the other one. And some adorable G.I. Joe Combat Heroes, if anyone's looking for them.
  8. I left two Animated Soundwaves on the shelf at the Target on Corbin in Northridge. A bunch of that repainted Universe stuff I'm not interested in, too. Blaster and crap.
  9. If you wanna get really precise, you could make some rocks and broken computer screens, but I wouldn't call those elements "missing".
  10. I've got no room for something like this, but I'd like to build a small display case where I could cut out the board beneath the monitor sections and backlight it to make them look like actual glowing computer screens...as is I'll probably end up making a small folding diorama thingee out of two "walls" and a "floor" so I can actually display it in my apartment.
  11. Very nice. I wouldn't mind it if you left the screens that nice blue color. We could always add our own images, even without too much Photoshop skill. I, personally, would like some map or diagram like this rather than any comic or show images/photography.
  12. Dude, I'm totally displaying my Classics on this. Thanks for sharing. :clap
