@KALofKRYPTON My GAME has the AG-Systems Totaku, as well as the Lemming. It also had one of the robo-dinosaurs from Horizon: Zero Dawn, the little raptor-like one, and I was severely tempted. I may end up snapping and getting one whenever I'm back in there.

@RogerRoger

They are nice, my GAME has them out now too. And doing 2 for £20! I am beyond tempted. I will get at least the AG - the temptation is to get multiple WipEout ships for a grid...

Thankfully, (I suppose) I am pretty broke at the moment anyway! My splurge (for the next few weeks) was getting the Banner Saga Trilogy on disc. Then possibly Spider-Man. There are many events and birthdays in between...

@KALofKRYPTON Yeah, same offer at mine. I did also see Crash up there, but it wasn't enough to push me over the edge. If they had either Lara or Sonic alongside the Horizon robo-raptor, I'd have done it and be posting pictures of them right now.

Having just dropped a fair amount on GAME Elite and upcoming pre-orders, I had a similar "thankfully" moment when I then looked into my wallet upon leaving the store!

@RogerRoger Ah GAME Elite. I thought it was a bit of a scam at first glance. It does work out quite well, but I just don't spend enough to make it worthwhile.

I don't think Lara is out until September.

If you get a Crash, do check a few of them - paint applications on the first wave was pretty inconsistent I thought. The AGs all looked pretty good though.

@KALofKRYPTON Last year, I spent an incredible amount, so much so that it was a no-brainer. This year, given I didn't think there'd be anything out I'd want, I cancelled it just before E3. Then six things got announced and, if you're buying new at launch, that's pretty much the threshold for GAME Elite becoming worth considering.

That makes sense; she'll probably come out the same day as Shadow. I'll keep my eyes open!

And thanks for the heads-up on the paint; unfortunately, in my GAME, they're keeping them all behind the counter as part of a wall display and I'm too anxious to be "that" guy, so I'll just get whichever one they put in my bag.

If there is a Lara, it'll be her and the robo-raptor, I reckon. I've got plenty of Sonic stuff already and Crash is just cool enough, but not as cool as the others.

@RogerRoger Be 'that guy'! GAME is largely staffed by gamers and varying types of nerd these days - they should appreciate that you want the best of tat options

@KALofKRYPTON Oh, I've got nothing against "that" guy, I'm just too anxious. Halfway through I'd just drop the figure, scream and run out, particularly if the store was busy!

Today while at GameStop, I decided to buy a SHFiguarts Fire Mario. It's a fully poseable figure with extra parts, kinda like Play Arts, but cheaper. This only cost me $30. Being Mario, it's not super detailed, but it's well made, and looks really nice. It compliments my Crash figure well.

If my phone's browser didn't crashe evey 5 secs on Push Square, I'd be showing pictures. One day I'll show all my gaming junk.

@DerMeister Just had a look at it online. That's a great figure for $30!

SHF does make really good stuff usually. I have a Guyver I Bio Boosted series figure by them (which I had to sell, sadly) and it was just the best!

@DerMeister Great purchase; SH Figuarts are awesome, I have some of their Star Wars figures and they're solid, gorgeous display pieces. Since I get them online, I'm usually looking at a little more expensive than you managed to find, too, so nicely done!

I also wanna say that my Indiana Jones is SH Figuarts, but I don't think he is. He's exactly the same scale and level of detail, though. Might be a similar company.

@FullbringIchigo thought I'd move the chat here rather than the screenshots thread. Technically this is gaming tat 😁

Most of the Batman Automobilia are still available for retail price. Through Eaglemoss and the odd bargain on ebay.

I didn't like the look of the '89 they did, but mostly they do look nice. I'd be up for grabbing the Knightfall era one and one of the LOTDK ones.

I love the Beyond Batmobile. It really is just a fantastic design.

And of course, TAS is evens with the '89 at the top of the list.

@KALofKRYPTON sounds like a good idea and yeah those look awesome, makes me sad i was never able to get them

did you ever see a hurst go by and think that one day you're going die, they will stick you in a little box and cover you over with dirt and rocks

RogerRoger

@FullbringIchigo You can sometimes find one or two of those Batmobiles on eBay for around £10 or £15. Admittedly quite steep but, as a one-off treat for your favourite design, not insurmountable.

Great shots there!

Funnily enough, as @KALofKRYPTON noted, I was coming here to move the discussion over as well, only with Star Trek starships! Your comment the other day made me realise there was no good reason I wasn't sharing shots of my shelves, other than the fact that they're always evolving (which means there'll never be a "finished" picture to take).

Anyway, this is my Enterprise shelf, which is the top of my gaming storage area. There's some Batman squeezed in to the left, but that'll have to go elsewhere soon.

Untitled

Then on my desk, inches to the left of the laptop upon which I currently type, is a small collection of Movie Era starships and shuttles I couldn't find anywhere else for.

Untitled

Then directly behind me, there's four layers of Eaglemoss starships, starting at the top with a mixture of allies, kitbashes and alternate realities.

Untitled

Beneath that, perhaps my favourite shelf, Voyager.

Untitled

Then beneath that, two shelves of alien antagonists. The first is exclusively Klingon and Romulan (because they have the most ships) and the second is entirely made up of alien vessels from Voyager and Enterprise (because the bigger CGI budgets on those shows allowed for some really excellent designs to be created).

Untitled

Untitled

Finally, off to the side of that shelf is the top of my (ahem) sock drawer, which is just the right size for what little I wanted from the Deep Space Nine era, including the First Contact fleet (and anything else I couldn't fit anywhere else).

Untitled

Why yes, dusting my apartment is a pain.

Also, to keep it gaming-gaming, here are a couple shots of my Metal Gear Solid collection. The picture of the Play Arts Kai group is old, because that's now the Enterprise shelf seen above, and unfortunately some of them are now in storage. I've been able to keep most out, though.

I'll save the truckloads of Batman and Star Wars merchandise (which is mostly LEGO anyway) for another time, perhaps when either franchise next releases a game.

@RogerRoger Nice clock! (I said clock.... not penis!)

And everything else. I have no shots of the Eaglemoss stuff. May do some at some point.

@RogerRoger i have to admit that All Good Things Enterprise is awesome

did you ever see a hurst go by and think that one day you're going die, they will stick you in a little box and cover you over with dirt and rocks

RogerRoger

@KALofKRYPTON Pun doesn't work when it's written out, buddy.

You've got an excellent eye for photography, so it'd be cool to see your shots at some point, for sure. I've got tons of close-ups and whatnot but didn't wanna kill everybody's bandwidth (that, and my phone's camera is... well, a camera in a phone).

@FullbringIchigo She's what started the madness. I had the Diamond Select Excelsior and Enterprise-B and then maybe, ooh, ten Eaglemoss models from Voyager and Enterprise. Was happy to call it that and it made a nice little display for a couple years. Then I found the Anti-Time Enterprise-D on eBay for £40 (having spent years seeing them at twice that, or more) and thought I'd be stupid not to. Everything kinda got out of hand from that moment onwards!

@SilentJ Thanks! Nice to see another Trekkie roaming these parts!

@RogerRoger it's a Bottom joke... Sort of 😂

Thank you. It was easier when I had my Galaxy S8... This Sony XA2 Ultra is a great phone, but the camera is pretty middling in its automatic modes!
I used to take a lot of shots of the Eaglemoss stuff every month and post to their fb page but didn't keep any of them. Not sure I have the patience to go looking 😂

That's the bulk of the Eaglemoss stuff, quite a lot boxed though. Think I'll start sorting through and changing stuff around. Don't even like the Kelvin ships! 😂

And the D, and the old Corgi 40th anniversary ships.

@KALofKRYPTON My phone is a Sony Xperia, but it's almost three years old at this point. I'll be getting a new one next year and am hoping the camera is a little better, because I've surprised myself at how many pictures I've ended up taking with a readily-available camera in my pocket. Never used to be interested in photography in the slightest.

Nice shots! You've got quite a few I'm missing from the early Eaglemoss line-up, some deliberately so and some I wouldn't mind backtracking for later.

Ah, memories! I had the Corgi Enterprise and Enterprise-D on top of my television at university. Never got the Bird-of-Prey but wished they'd kept going with their originally-planned line, which would've included the Excelsior, Defiant and Voyager. They're good models!

That LCARS panel is gorgeous! I'm very jealous!
