My Statue's

 So a few weeks ago I went to Ikea and purchased myself a display case which now sits in my living room.

StormTroopers, Boba Fett and Darth Vader are ArtFX hard PVC statues from Japan, they vast amount of parts to allow you pose them in various ways.

X-Men and Spiderman (original and black costume) are from the Marvel Statue collection I used to collect, I have loads of these in the loft still in there boxes, about 50+ at last count.

Ramshackle Loons

Two rather nifty little miniatures made by Ramshackle, I suppose I could have painted them a bit more colourful, but decided to go with a more neutral grey scheme.

Federation Fleet (and 300 posts!)

I have been interested in forming a fleet made from Star Trek model miniatures, however I have found them to be either rather pricey, or hard to get hold of. I had considered the Star Trek Tactics game from Heroclix, but the local Forbidden Planet doesn't stock it. However I tracked a few miniatures down on Ebay and decided to pick up a few to see how they sized up. So from left to right we have a MicroMachines USS Reliant, Heroclix USS Reliant, Hot Wheels USS Enterprise (new version) and Futura USS Enterprise.
Of the four they all size up well, but the best sculpts are the MicroMachines and the Futura models, the HeroClix is a little smaller and a bit soft on the details but is nice for what it is. The Hot Wheels however is horrid, the saucer and body are die cast and bolted together badly, while the nacelles are soft bendy...really bendy rubber plastic, still it will serve till I acquire a few more replacements.

Also 300 posts! Woot!
