    ok so a bit of work and i finally have my boba fett where I want him, just as i suspected there was a long plastic filled resin pipe going into a neck hole. the pipe was cut way to long. i took the pipe out go the helmet and brought it to my guy with a nice saw. took an inch off and that is all it took. here are some pics of the process and before and after shots. i am very happy with the results.

    Great job man, big improvement! That's a really cool piece. Lot's of complaints out there about the paint? Yours looks like the real guy to me.

    Yeah he is Erie how real he looks. Like I have stated before its all in the fussing with clothes, hair etc to make things look real. Most of these guys just pull out of box and put them together and say why doesn't it look good. Most of the manufacturers have professional slotting pics and posing things. It just takes time

    So here is my very current set up of y display case it is very temporary as i am not a fan of mixed scales. however until i find a better place for some of these piece here they will stay. The root and rocket from hot toys is just astounding. I had a blast posing them. very cool highly detailed pieces. the DC pFs are hanging out on the bottom. nit sure if i will keep all of them. i especially love the women. catwoman and batgirl are most impressive. As for marty I have to give a big thank you to RAF, STEVE and LARS. raf made this kick ass plaque and sent it over to steve as him and lars attended london comic con and waited for Christopher loads autograph. Perfect to display with my BTTF delorean and marty and hopefully an upcoming Doc brown. Thanks again guys.

    Wow congrats on the signed plaque! I don't think the mixed scales look bad at all. Just my opinion...looks great!

    Thanks guys, it doesn't look bad just not ideal to me. I am getting back into the hot toys thing, it started with Marty. Honestly it had to do with the posing of the pieces I have to much fun doing it. It's like I get to play with toys again lol

    Oh, yeah, I remember that one. All praise goes to Steve though. He just knows when a bribe is in the offing.

    Looks like the cab is filling up again, Enz. :top:

    It is fun isn't it? I like how they don't take up too much space and aren't as fragile.

    It is filling up again, but not sure how long some of these pieces will be in there as I have many things on order and as you can see running out of room.

    Well I still have hopes for the vader lifesize piece from sideshow. As the email that I received stated that they will be rereleasing it in the future and I will have a priority preorder since I ordered before. I have talk to a couple supervisors over there to confirm, they all say it's comin bit have no idea when. That is still my main focus. I also have the anavos storm trooper armor on order and will get a blaster and a extremely posable manaiquin to make my own lifesize storm trooper. As for the other stuff, I have the iron man cm on order and now the 1/3 scale Arkaham knight batman which will be int he same scale. I believe the top of the cabinet will be focused on 1/3 scale pieces as I'm still debating the hulk and anything else cm may come up with. Then the bottom for comic pfs weather or not I stick with dc or not. But have to have some comic stuff in my collection. As for the hot toys stuff I'm just having to much fun with these things not to continue,. I'm going to stick with that characters I really love that are not being produced by any other companies. I have ant man on orde as well as I want the beetle juice from sideshow. But as you guys know my collection can change at any minute, lol. Who knows what I will have in my collection next year.

    Me too.! Too much fun I spend hours fixating on them and looking at movie still poses to try and replicate them. My son gets in on it too and gets so excited when we nail a pose. Problem with him is he always wants to switch out the hands and such. I am so blown away at the amount of detail they can squeeze into these little ass pieces. I was comparing the Marty to the jack sparrow cm I have. And although in two totally different realms of quality . I have to give it to hot toys in the detail dept. even the pours on the face. I do want to get into there 1/4 stuff too but I will be really picky on that. I'm thinkin boba with vader and two or three storm troopers would make a cool diorama

    Yeah the HT SW 1/4 stuff is going to be very nice I bet. I had Fett on order but cancelled it along with every other PO I had. The only sure things on my horizon are two custom horror 1/6 figures that haven't been made yet, but I'm on the list for. Part 4 machete head Jason and Pennywise the clown. I'll most likely continue to collect masks too. I have lost interest in statues for the time being.
