What a beautiful sight.
Thank you for the kind words!
Star Wars Black Series Force FX Luke Skywalker's ROTJ (Green) and Darth Vader's (Red) Lightsabers came in and they look great together!
No problems with any of them, though the Vader tends to eat up batteries like candy.
I have to say that Luke's ANH (Blue) Lightsaber is probably my favorite just because of how iconic it is. The Graflex design of the hilt is the most comfortable in the hand for me, and looks the best to me too. It's light and graceful and feels the most balanced out of the three too.
Luke's ROTJ (Green) Lightsaber has the brightest blade glow and the green color looks beautiful. The hilt, thought nicely machined, is rather no frills and the most simplistic out of the three. It's light and does feel good in the hand.
Vader's saber is the heaviest and least comfortable in the hand, but its hefty weight does make me think "brute force" (pun intended ). I was surprised by just how heavy it is compared to the others. The hilt is probably the most complex out of the three with all the details.
Lovin' 'em and gonna show my dad-in-law when he comes visiting us this weekend (he's a big Star Wars buff himself).
Man you are so lucky...
My 3A Transformers display shelf (all Bambaland exclusives), sans Bumblebee (because I'm just not a huge fan of the character and his 3A figure being way too big sets off my OCD, so I passed on him).
Some new acquisitions!
DNA Design DS-01 Susanoo ("Masterpiece" Bludgeon) together with ROTF Bludgeon (tank mode).
ROTF Bludgeon and Takara Cloud Megatron with upgraded 3P heads and weapons.
TLK-15 Calibur Optimus Prime (w/ bonus gold chrome shield) together w/ AD-31 Optimus Prime (truck mode).
MB-11 Movie The Best Optimus Prime with TLK-15 Calibur OP weapons (and metal chrome smokestacks).

APS Ultimate Optimus Prime with UFO Annular Armory Trailers.
Oh boy! What a phenomenal collection! Absolutely love it!!
Thanks, much appreciated!
Titans Return Autobot Clones Fastlane and Cloudraker plus Decepticon Clones Wingspan and Pounce. They look good together and I'm glad to have all 4 Clones completed! Also gave them matching guns (the little twin pistols that come with AOE Deluxe Crosshairs and Advanced Deluxe Sideswipe):
Also added Sentinel 4-Inch MegamaLegends (Rockman Dash) Rock Volnutt to my Classic Megaman and Megaman X:

Just rearranging some of my displays before I receive and make room for the new MPM figures.
My Revoltech Decepticons at my office at work guest-starring Engineer General and Revoltech DOTM Optimus Prime (and the statue maquette of Optimus riding Grimlock from the AOE DVD release). I have a Skywarp at home and working on customizing a spare Starscream into Thundercracker.
Takara Unite Warriors Computron with Perfect Effect upgrades.
Generations Deluxe Bomber Megatron surrounded by his Deluxe Armada Seekers: Ramjet, Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp. Hidden behind Megs are Takara Legends Runabout and Runamuck.
TLK-EX Laserbeak aka Pink Murderbee.
Just received SHF Starlord plus Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot yesterday!
New toy! A custom Luke Skywalker lightsaber (built by Zimmer Labs) from Return of the Jedi, using a Saberforge Prodigal Son hilt with a 34" Neopixel LED blade, Teensysaber V3 electronics board (with various colors and animated effect presets), Arduino sound card (super loud too and plays Duel of the Fates ), and custom LED lights installed in the control box (not an easy feat since the Prodigal Son hilt apparently has very little space to work with for wires in that specific part).
Always loved Luke's saber from ROTJ for its elegant thin neck design, classy copper collar, cool looking grenade section, neat control box, and my favorite blade color green (and its accompanying quick ignition and more aggressively distinct sound). It's the lightsaber that defeated Darth Vader and his fearsome red saber! Aside from Obi-Wan's weapon, no other saber can claim that distinction.
Loving those lightsabers!
Nice to see a fellow SW fan and collector....and gamer. Megaman 11 looks awesome from what I've seen.
Revoltech Iron Man Mks 1 through 7, displayed inside Tamashii Nations Bandai (S.H. Figuarts) Hall of Armor units. Finally had a chance to do this and I'm just wowwed by the results! Slowly but surely, I'm cracking open my SHF Iron Man suits too to display in action poses next to the Revo versions. Got Mks III and VI opened so far, along with Tony himself (with pieces of the Mk 42).
Thanks, me too! I have Obi-Wan Kenobi's saber since then, and have Rey's/Luke's ESB saber on the way to me.
Thanks! Oh yeah, my wife and I are excited for MM11 as we're big fans of Classic NES Mega-Man!
Some new additions!
S.H. Figuarts Spider-Man Homecoming (homemade costume version) and Iron Man Mk 47:
Unique Toys Peru Kill (third party Lockdown from Transformers: Age of Extinction):

Nightstalker, Stripes, Wing Thing, and Enemy:
MP-39 Sunstreaker (x2, super tuned custom and normal Lamborghini Countach LP500S modes) with his twin brother MP-12+ Lambor/Sideswipe.
Lambros in the fight of their lives!
Figma Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan) with Figma Horse (Chestnut version).
Figma Samus Aran (PRIME 3 version).
I'll preface this by saying that I'm terrible at taking videos, especially juggling a smartphone in one hand and a lightsaber in the other.
That said, just some short, super crappy vids of my custom ROTJ Luke Skywalker saber. Very fun to mess around with this thing! Blade is bright and the sound/music effects are loud too!
