    Got my eyes set on She-Ra when she comes out.

    Working on my Classics shelves...I think this is about 80-85% of my figures. I have a little more shelving and unboxing and then on to the big figures, vehicles and play-sets. This is an insane amount of work.

    Fetched a package this morning, totally oblivious of what could be inside.

    It was my order from Barbarossa customs! This made me smile this morning. Look!

    The long wait is ALWAYS worth it. Ordered several times from him by now.

    The original 2008 figure of Heman will always have a special charm no matter what. Despite the lack of double elbow and knee joints, non interchangeable hands and such.

    Btw. he also gave his hair a little wash like regular classics figures. Although it would work best with more details in the plastic, I think it looks very nice. So it's not just 1 tone blonde, but 2 tone blonde. Was a custom request by me :)

    I like the themed groupings you have going on. Lots of custom variants I see as well. Very nice. It reminds me I need to get acrylic risers for my shelves that don't cost a ton.

    Those acrylic risers are brutally expensive.

    Forgot I bought this upgrade set years ago...

    That thing looks amazing! No offense to the designer, but that custom head is so much better than the stock head. Looks like a part of the castle instead of the castle-with-legs. Where did you get it?

    So has anyone seen pics of the Origins Tri Klops armour fitting on a Classics body? I know there was lots of people talking about it but haven’t seen it yet

    I was thinking the Mini-Comic exclusive. If I can re-create the Mini-Comic version in Classics I’ll be thrilled. Having a feeling it will go crop-top though.

    Ah I didn't buy the mini comic Triclops but I imagine it would crop top. The origins torso are shorter than the classics.

    4D2EE737-0453-4FB4-90CA-C79CF3D22569.jpeg Positively thrilled to find this for just under a hundred, opened but complete. He’s been a want for several years now and was never able to pull the trigger on 150-200 for him.

    Won my first Classics figure in an Ebay auction!

    I'm honestly kind of in shock. Never thought I'd be able to own a Classics figure.

    It's gotten really hard being a classics collector. Most, if not all figures go for prices I wouldn't remotely want to pay :(  happy to see you guys succeeding :)

    And to think most of them were 20 in their time.
