    Musashi300GT's bar variant looks like the place TFs go to get weird. And that is awesome.

    It's from TRU putting their exclusive Avengers light-up-base figures on clearance (along with Doctor Dreadful Alien Slime Drink sets, which is where the big "bacta tanks" in the back of many of the Swerve's Bars are coming from).

    The Avengers sets just went to 60% off, or under $5 each, so I nabbed 4 myself over the weekend (and at a store that, amazingly, had more than just the Gummi Bear translucent red Extremis Iron Man, too! So I have Black Widow & Black Panther, both figures I never nabbed in the regular Marvel Universe line, and a spare Captain America along with one Gummi Bear Iron Man). Peel off the Avengers stickers, connect the bases into a semi-circle (or full circle, if you prefer), find something to set it on to raise it up, and you're about done.

    I totally ripped off Squall and RougeRunner who had posted pics of thiers.

    The parts are all exactly like Toonimator said. The tables are from Halo action figures. Cortana's base stand.

    I started the craze over in the MakeToys Serve/Gears thread.

    I was trying to find a cheaper alternative to the really cool bar TJ had previously posted, and me and a friend found this Marvel Universe light up bases on clearance at Toys R' Us, along with some other components that we used to assemble Swerve's Bar. Since then, everyone has been adding their own unique touches, and I won't lie, I'm copying every single one of their ideas, cause they are awesome!

    musashi3000gt, genius use of the Halo light up bases for tables! Also, how did you get the underside of the table and tubes to lightup?

    I'm glad you came up with yours, because I'm going to do the same thing. The bar I used looked great, but since it was for another group of toys, it had to go back to serving it's purpose after I photographed it! Thanks for coming up with this!

    Easy man. Cut the CD rack lid in half, painted it with a light shade of satin gray. Went to Party City and bought these light up rings. The lid was transparent and the spary coat is light enough for the light to bleed through.

    The tubes is just a drop in finger light also from Party City. The pack of 3 was 1.99. dirt cheap L.E.D.s man.

    And the real genius is you man. If not for the Idea we wouldnt all have these cool dios, so thanks man.

    Very nice! Looks great! I have 4 of the base lights too and a CD tray to prop it up. Still need to grab some Doctor Dreadful drink cups and those LED lights. Definitely going to steal these ideas. :D

    This. Is. WIN.

    awesome setup! I love how everyone keeps adding their own little touches/ideas. Swerve/Trash-Talk's bar should get its own thread!

    Hey TJ -- can you post the picture of the bar you used?

    The avengers base idea is total win. I bought 8 of them from tru. Was going to stop at 4, but the discount was too good to pass up. Nabbed 5 clear iron man figs, they are currently being, "repurposed" as bouncers.

    Thanks man, I think I got carried away with the L.E.D.s though. Trash-talk's bar now sponsored by Ultra.

    Looks good. Which one is that? The Dr. Wu one had me intrigued.

    Too bad the head and shoulders aren't my only issue with the figure... his hips are so loose, he can't even stand up.
