    Beautiful collection!
    I just noticed that your Custom Leader Class Ironhide looks like the custom I did like four years ago! Where did you get it?

    Thank you kindly, much appreciated!

    As for Ironhide, I can't recall exactly who sold it to me, only that I procured it from an eBay auction a while ago. If it is indeed your custom Ironhide, then my hat's off to you since it's one of my favorite Bayverse custom pieces! Just a very cool and nicely done figure, and I love how articulated the hands and fingers are. I recently freed him from his box (I moved recently to Japan and still in the process of unpacking everything) and he's sitting on a shelf right now with several other custom movieverse figures I have.

    3A/ThreeZero Ruby Rose from the 3D animated series RWBY. Glad she comes with a display stand because there's no way she's holding up that giant scythe by herself. :lol 

    [​IMG]

    Though she's not perfect (quibbles such as weak arm joints; would've preferred double-jointed elbows and knees for better range of articulation too; plus the face sculpt is a bit too flat for our tastes), the wife was very impressed with this figure, same as me. Has a nice shelf presence.

    Not sure we'll go in on the other characters in this line (Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long) but Ruby is definitely a keeper!

    That is really cool! I've been looking into getting some RWBY figures, I think I might go with the 30 some dollar figures they have on Rooster Teeths website myself. But dependent on price I might get something like that since I want to build a good collection of RWBY related stuff.

    Thanks! The McFarlane figurines look pretty good though I don't really go for statues myself since I prefer having articulation (that's my wife's preference as well). I just know that if we do decide to pick up 3A Weiss next, we'll be sucked into the rest of the line. :D

    Look who showed up at the post office! :D  3A DOTM Optimus Prime (with Bambaland exclusive ion cannon)! Saying that he's a big boy is a huge understatement!

    Another shot of ThreeA's 19-inch tall DOTM Optimus Prime (with Bambaland exclusive eliminator cannon). Awesome figure with amazing shelf presence!

    [​IMG]

    Also picked up Original Effect's Himiko. Very beautiful figure, if a bit fiddly. Still, I quite dig how she looks. Gave her some extra accessories leftover from a custom kitbash. Wife loves how she came out too but did remark, "She looks a little cold." :lol

    Revoltech Deadpool is such a great and fun figure with a lot of character! Love him! If this is indicative of the Revo Marvel figures going forward, then I'm in (Spider-Man looks awesome).

    Here are some snaps. Guest starring Revoltech Black Lagoon Revy and NECA ED-209. :D

    Figma Solid Snake and Zero Suit Samus Aran. These two look good together!

    SS_SA_0.jpg

    Another shot of the power couple. :D 

    SS_SA_1.jpg

    The two Majors Motoko Kusanagi (SAC and Arise).

    Two_Majors.jpg

    SAOII Kirito GGO version. Pretty nice figure!

    Kirito0.jpg

    Yeah, I found a use for The Major's (SAC version) extra boobage part, and gave it to Kirito. :lol 

    Kirito1.jpg

    No, I don't plan to leave it on him (her). :D  Was just a joke I did on a whim but the part fits pretty well, to my surprise. Looking forward to getting the Sinon reissue!

    Cracked open my Black Series Force FX Luke Skywalker ANH/ESB (Blue) Lightsaber. Pretty awesome movie replica! No issues at all with the lighting effects though you can see the individual LEDs on the string inside the blade, but it's not that big a deal to me given the price. (I like Star Wars but I don't love it to the point where I'm willing to drop $700+ on a third party product just yet.) I would have liked the sound to be a bit louder than it is but everything seems to function nicely.

    Looking forward to receiving Luke's ROTJ (Green) and Darth Vader's (Red) Lightsaber next week! Really hope they give us Mace Windu's and Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsabers eventually in the BS FFX lineup.

    The saber fits pretty well on a Japanese sword stand that I purchased years back (when I was into real sharp edged swords). Not sure where I'll display the ROTJ Luke and Vader sabers when they come in, though I do have a double sword stand too (currently being used to hold some wooden bokken).

    Luke_ANH_Lightsaber.jpg

    Kotobukiya Super-Deformed Chibi Transformers model kits (I like the box art) and G1 Megatrons (bot and alt gun modes). The stock clear plastic display stand that came with the BS FFX lightsaber is kinda junk though, but I did find a way to re-purpose it. It works pretty well as a display stand for G1 Megatron, and seems stable enough to keep ol' Megs from tumbling off the bookshelf where I currently have him. Life hack! :D

    You got the touch.... you got the power! YEAH!

    You_Got_The_Touch.jpg

    Megatron: "Why throw away your life so recklessly?"

    Optimus: "That's a question you should ask yourself, Megatron."

    Megatron: "No! I'll crush you with my bare hands!"

    Megs_vs_OP.jpg

    X-Transbots MX-I Apollyon (3P Megatron) vs. Takara MP-10 Convoy (Optimus Prime). Convoy has KFC articulated finger hands, MP-1's ion rifle (I don't like MP-10's tiny collapsible peashooter), and a 3P rocket jetpack (that Optimus Prime borrowed from Sideswipe in the MTMTE pilot of the G1 cartoon show). The stand holding him up is a Universal Act Style - Flexible Arm Figure Stand by WAVE designed for 1/6 scale (12 inch) figures.

    Takara Movie Advanced Deluxe Wheeljack (G1 deco). Even though he's less stable with his legs turned around, he does gain the use of working knee joints and stands a bit taller than his standard (more squat) transformation. I switched up his weapons a little: gave him TF Prime Wheeljack's swords, the shoulder rocket from Custom Robots Revoltech Wheeljack, plus the bits and guns from some of the Iron Factory mini-Legends figures look great with him, I think, particular the arm guards/shields and rifles.

    Bayjack.jpg

    Randomly, there might be more than just a slight passing resemblance between these two (Titans Return Legends class Sharkticon Gnaw and oversized Supreme class KO Movieverse Starscream custom painted in his first movie F-22A Raptor camo colors). :lol 

    Gnawscream0.jpg

    "No one can defeat Gnawscream!!!"

    Gnawscream1.jpg

    Also, one of my favorite Revoltech figures: DOTM Optimus Prime (Jetwing version).

    Revo_DOTM_Jetwing_OP_0.jpg

    "I'm coming for YOU!!!"

    Revo_DOTM_Jetwing_OP_1.jpg

    A quick snap of my Star Wars Revos on my desk at work. Really like all 4 of them. (I didn't get Revo Darth Vader or Stormtrooper, however, as their skinny proportions and other odd design choices kinda bugged me but these 4 are pretty good.) I really hope Kaiyodo gives us a Revo TIE Fighter and/or Vader's Advanced TIE, but given the somewhat lukewarm (if not poor) reception of Vader and the Stormtroopers, I'm not so sure their Star Wars stuff will continue in the Revo line. I hope I'm proven wrong though as their figures do make really cool desk toys to fiddle with.

    SW_Revos_Desk.jpg

    And here's Engineer General (3P non-transforming Devastator figure) and Microman Street Fighter Sakura (giving a shoryuken right to Devy's crotch :lol ) at the office (also work desk):

    Devy_Engineer_General.jpg

    The Nissan Fairlady Z (370Z Japanese Police Patrol Car) is a transforming DiaRobo DR-0002 figure.

    3A Ruby Rose from the 3D animated show RWBY. I do have the other three girls too (Weiss, Blake, and Yang -- picked them up for cheap recently with holiday discounts) but haven't opened them yet.

    The Universal Act Style - Flexible Arm Figure Stand by WAVE is an excellent stand for 1/6 scale figures (though it's kinda pricey); the flexible arm is strong and robust, able to hold up 12 inch figures like a champ for action poses, while the base contains very strong magnets so you can anchor it to a metal surface (even the fridge door, if you want).

    I modded the stock clear plastic arm onto the top of the WAVE flexible stand arm so that Ruby is able to hold up her Crescent Rose scythe now. I bought 3 more WAVE stands for the rest of Team RWBY but doubt I'll need to do any additional modding (mostly because Ruby has the biggest and heaviest weapon out of the four girls).

    And a trio of S.H. Figuarts Rogue One Stormtroopers:

    Man seeing your pics of SAO2 Kirito remind me that if I wasn't so broke I'd complete the SAO figma series. I have Aincrad Kirito and Asuna but I need to get all the other figmas they ended up making. Nice pics!

    Thanks! Though I watched the various SAO anime shows (never played the games though), the only ones whose character designs that really appealed to me was SAOII with Kirito and Sinon's GGO costumes so those two Figma versions are the only ones I'll collect.

    I missed out on the initial release of Kirito and Sinon the first time around, but I did manage to find Kirito at a local Book-Off! store (like Mandarake, they sell second-hand goods but occasionally have MISB stuff). I'm just waiting for Sinon's reissue (already preordered on HLJ) since I always liked her design the most out of all the SAO characters.

    I don't like SAO enough to go full in on the rest of the figures in the line.
