Your statues/figures/collectibles - in the real world - show them here!

In classic Home there was a nice display of statues/collectibles - like (see the background walls):



And Oculus seems to promote statues/collectibles quite a lot in Home 2.0, for example:

Billedresultat for home oculus

Even though I don't want such stuff in my Oculus Home, I have collected a few statues in the real world, and I was wondering if there are other statue collectors in here?

I'm trying not to convert my man cave into a dollhouse - so far I've gotten these few:

It's not something you'll easily find on eBay ;-) The weight statue + base  is close to 10 kg, scale is 1/4. 


BTW, here it's next to my Tintin statue:

Got this one too - of course bought it without first discussing it with the wife - it appears the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) is really low on this one, at least she said a lot of words to greatly support the swear jar when she saw it:





Hidden in plain sight, yes it's Hulk-green furniture and Galactus-colored cushions ;-)

Then got some more of Miller's Batman - maybe slightly boring stuff:

My only Spidey statue:



Also just bought this one, it's still in the mail - I've already prepared a speech to the wife starting with the words "Just when you thought WAF couldn't get any lower" (still need to write some more I guess, sigh...)

BTW, just saw this one - looks great (probably won't be shipping before late next year or 2020), but I'm running out of space for such large statues - it's really not something that should be close to your VR play area  :D

    Sideshow miniatures are freaking awesome but man are they expensive.

    You have some serious wife aggro inbound!

    As far myself aside from some pop figures I never collected statues.

    WAAAGH!

    That Punisher one is awesome!!!! One of my favourite superheroes because he's a complete fucking nutjob lol :D :D :D

    Michael Keaton in those two Burton directed Batman films has been the best Batman so far for my money, he portrayed Batman as a real headcase, helped by Burton having both of those films so fucking DARK lol B) :D B)

    I'm sure pop figures would be more than welcome in this thread - figures/statues whatever you love to display :)

    But yes - especially this one did surprise me 3 days ago -  16k for a Sideshow Grey Hulk 20" Premium statue  :o

    Got an e-mail from Sideshow today (Dec 12), so my statue has finally shipped. And then I clicked on the tracking number guessing that the large package would arrive sometime next week, but no...  :#

     

    Fortunately I was working home today, but fun to see a 38 lbs package travelling half around the globe in one day. Then again, I could have bought an Odyssey+ at full price for the amount I paid for shipping and VAT alone, sigh.  

    Well, at least it's here - I do hope I'll enjoy it more than the 2080 Ti I could have bought instead  ;)


    I'm not unwrapping the thing just yet - need to make room for it first - and with this size there's just no way it'll fit under the Christmas tree, lol Maybe I should hide the box before my dear wife gets home, sees the box and then experiences a tonic-clonic seizure, hmmm.  

    Not sure how the present this to her, maybe like "Hey honey, I just bought something in a box the size of our youngest son!". This could so easily turn into a Bonnie Situation!  :# :wink:
