    I was a part of the original kick starter for the I am Elemental action figures, I have them still in their packaging.

    "I find this shouting and screaming deeply upsetting. It affects my concentration. And my grip! Now where is Bruce Wayne?"

    Alfred dangling Strange over the abyss in Gotham ep. 3x20 was so breathtaking! One of my favorite scenes.

    And the original for comparison:

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

    I bought this oven for my mother last year (you can put an incense cone into it and there are several holes where the smoke comes out) and before giving it away I had to take a quick picture ;)

    I'm not even supposed to be here today.
    I've not caught up to that point yet. Reminds me of one of the few times Roger Moore's Bond was acting ruthless. Hommage?!

    Wow, you are right, this looks very similar! I hadn't made that connection. If I ever meet one of the producer guys I'll ask whether that was an homage!

    If you are in the UK and have watched Gotham season 4 wondering why there is so much stuff you don't remember, it's because season 3 aired on a different channel. This scene is from one of the episodes leading up to the season 3 finale. Sorry for the spoilers!

    I got this decorative metal sheet last night. I had to trim it down a bit but it now fits nicely in my diorama staging area.

    I thought I'd use it to show off the new Rick and Morty action figures I got. Purge Suit Morty and Summer.

    I also got Propeller Suit Mario finally.

    And lastly, while not an action figure I got the Nintendo Switch copy of "Starlink" which came with this awesome Arwing from the Star Fox series.

    That's what I like to see--more ships.
    Instead, Shark Tank supported pimple popper games...

    I scored the new 6" Black Series L3-37 and Rio Durant at GameStop (for an awesome Buy One, Get One 50% Off promotion that was still going on the other night) along with a loose 3.75" Rebolt from Corellia in Solo, a 3.75" Rose in her Crait poncho outfit from The Last Jedi and a 3.75" Imperial Royal Guard from the Solo-packaged Basic figure line. The Rio is an incredible figure and one of the best-sculpted and most intricately-detailed figures in the entire 6-inch Black Series line.

    If you were on the fence or are interested in Rogue One Black Series Figures, you should check your local 5 Below. I just saw these at my local store. [​IMG]

    I saw that about a month or two back! I scored an extra 6" Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus when my local Five Below got in some of that wave from Rogue One. Chirrut and Baze were almost impossible to find at brick-and-mortar when they were brand new and their wave was sandwiched right between the AT-AT Driver/Darth Revan Wave and the almost equally difficult to find Qui-Gon Jinn/Bespin Lando Wave.

    Right now my Five Below is likely stuck with just Jyns and Cassians as shown in your photograph above, but for about a week or so you could actually find Chirrut and Baze there. I also saw some Imperial Death Troopers but didn't pick up any extra ones.

    I've started a new project. Making a sci fi style door. I got a picture frame and cut the bottom off. Similar to what @Astra did to make a miniature fireplace. It is a bit on the short side when it comes to my DST trek figures but I'm happy with how it's coming along so far. This is just a rough draft but I wanted to show it off. :)

    Awesome idea!
    And I love your new floor too. I have been to the hardware store several times, but I never find the cool things you have. I am particularly looking for something that looks like those room dividers with the hexagons.

    Thank you. I got my new floor at my local Hobby Lobby. They came in a variety of styles but the one I got looks the most like a Star Wars esque wall or floor. As for the hexagons, You may want to try looking for miniature chicken wire or something similar. Hope that helps. :)

    Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas! Don't let the goose or turkey burn. Alfred shows how it's done correctly!

    My wife got me a MacFarlane 7-inch Kirk action figure. She also got me the Spock w/Horta.

    The 6" Black Series Archive subline of repacks and repaints of popular and in-demand figures from earlier years is being spotted on the pegs in more than a few stores across America. The first Archive wave assortment brings X-Wing Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Bossk and IG-88 back into stores and depending on where you live and shop they'll be in stores for the first time.

    I never got IG-88 the first time he was released and the only time I've ever seen him in person the seller wanted a ridiculous amount for him. This will be my first chance to own him for regular retail and hopefully these figures will ship in decent quantities so that collectors can get their hands on them.
