I like this collection. I like that it's not too heavy in X-men! Lol.
Funny you should say that... I've recently added a bunch of X-Men.
I figured it was time to update this thread.
Pics of my main statue room:
I basically only added Ant-Man... I'm still waiting on Metallic Cap, Savage Hulk, and mini-Wasp. I've got the new Hercules on order, and I'll be selling the old one off when he arrives.
Collection completed... added DD yellow, Elektra, and Bullseye.
Assorted heroes and villains:
Lots of changes to this cabinet... I added M.O.D.O.K., Magneto, Dr. Strange, and an entire cosmic shelf (see below). I also moved Hellboy and sold Extremis Iron man. Action Cap will take on a space up top. Taskmaster will be placed on the shelf with Magneto and Ultron. I need a Kang full size, badly... where is he, Mr. Bowen?
The cosmic shelf:
IG Thanos and Modern Nova both came in today... how is that for an awesome day? Words cannot express how awesome IG Thanos is. I wanted Modern Warlock too, but he won't fit on the shelf.
A few miscellaneous pieces. Yes, I have two Dooms. I don't know what I'm going to do with Bucky, but Smashdaddy was selling him so cheap that I couldn't pass. Maybe I'll get Winter Soldier, or a WW2 Cap, or Bucky Cap... who knows? I'm in no hurry. The Bizarro figure is the sole survivor of my DC Universe Classics collection... I had the entire series up through Wave 16, at one point.
And my spillover collection in my guest room: X-Men:
The Colossus is Kotobukiya... sorry, I just like that version better, and I got a great deal on it. This is the extent of my X-men collection, unless I splurge on a retro Cable down the road. I really never meant to have an X-Men collection... I was gonna stick with Wolvie, Colossus, and Cyclops. Then I got a Banshee for super cheap. Then I saw Sunfire in person... that's one of the best looking statues I've ever seen. Once I committed, the intent was to recreate the Giant Size X-Men, but the brown Wolverine is a purposeful deviation: I grew up with brown Wolvie, so he's the "correct" version to me. Thunderbird isn't so much a "need" for me, since he was such a trivial member. I would vastlyprefer an 80's Cyclops, but I'm unhappy with the existing 80's version, so I'm settling for the next best version. I've got my fingers crossed that we'll get a new 80's Cyclops soon.
That's the blue SM exclusive Spidey... I'm still pissy about paying so much for it retail, but I'd gladly have paid $425 in the aftermarket. How's that for confusing? It's one of my favorites now, and it prompted me to basically buy the entire Sinister Six. I really want the existing modern Black Cat... I've lost several auctions for her, and I'm not a fan of the upcoming retro version. I'd have the existing Green Goblin, but the scale issues bother me. If I can get a new Hobgoblin and Green Goblin, then I'll be done with my Spidey Collection. Unless we get a new Rhino or a Grizzly.

Yeah, that Thanos looks nice with your setup bro...
He's really just an awesome statue. I'm not sure if he beats out Smackdown Hulk as my favorite, but he's tied at least. I really wasn't expecting to like him that much. Thanks for the deal... I don't know how he happened to come back on the market, but I'm glad I got him.

So, being in no hurry, of course I buy a Bucky Cap off eBay today. Ideas are terrible, man. They get in my head and worm their way around.
