    Don't really have ideas so much as I love wood paneling, fire places and desks. Just need a pipe and a leather chair.

    Maybe they visit Professor Data?

    Right! She arrives just in time to save Ten from a Dalek. I thought so but wasn't sure. It's been way too long since I watched it. With RTD returning, I must get myself back into the Doctor Who mood and get new ideas for pictures!

    I'm right there with you with the love of wood paneling, fire places and desks!

    I think my love must have started when I was into Sherlock Holmes as a teenager. Which I also blame for my love of the UK in general. It often was said that they were sitting at the fireplace, reading a newspaper, while outside the wind was howling. It just feel so cozy.

    I only have a lonely Sherlock figure in this scale. I wish they had gone deeper into the line. Would have made for some awesome pictures.

    I have not yet watched TNG (one day!) so I don't have any figures from that. Did you see the post with the crazy cat lady and the Halloween pics when I first got the Mansion set? It's here:

    I can show you some old ones that I made with Alfred from "Gotham". If you haven't watched this show, do it - lots of fireplaces and paneled walls there! I wish I had this set back then.

    I made that wall just from cardboard stripes. A lot of cardboard stripes!

    Thank you guys!

    I really should not be allowed into any shops... I got this truck by Lambertz for my brother for Christmas. It is filled with Lebkuchen / gingerbread.

    I thought Alfred would make a good chauffeur in his grey coat, don't you think? Also, nice cane, Alfred!

    On the roof there is a ladder and a spare tire!

    Also, I felt like a game of pool at Sandrine's.

    I'd love to see Borg playing billiards, or even add 7 of 9 to that group as she is ex borg.

    Oh damn you Eddie.......... They were hilarious...... Corn man actually looks like something that could be sold in rural USA and that one with the goat could be sold in Christian toy shops

    "Enhanced Scurry." :lol: For some extra lulz, here is a genuinely wacky Trek bootleg that apparently was found in 1999.

    It would be hilarious, but I don't own any Borg. I also own Seven only in her blue suit, not when she was still in Borg outfit. I don't really like them to be honest, so I won't buy any.

    Have I already shown my SuperMom? From the line of "Happy Workers", there is also a Boss Man and a Geek Man and others.

    That two-faced baby is kind of terrifying.

    It is! I meant to do a Halloween picture with it. Next year!

    The accessories pictured in the second picture come with the guy from the same line, he is called "GeekMan"
    I always buy them more for the accessories than for the actual figures ;)
    The laptop also opens and closes. The PDA or what it is, connects to his hip via magnet.

    The line is called "Happy Workers". There is currently only one SuperMom at Ebay, but she is 100 bucks. You'll have to keep looking, maybe one will turn up that's cheaper. She also exists with dark skin.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/154598731673?hash=item23fecd6f99:g:~4wAAOSwwmZhNWvH

    GeekMan is much cheaper with only14 bucks! Nobody wants him, poor guy.

    I once did these pictures with him:

    Ah.. Cool........... I'll have to look on Ebay for those, as a one off purchase I'd not mind buying both of them.
