So much Frazetta goodness.  (worship)

The Frazetta posters continue along the wall and around.  There are over 30 of them.

OK ... finally I can share with you all the completed project, with the drawer inserts in place.  I tried taking a panorama, but being in a relatively small space makes it look a bit distorted.  Hopefully this gives you an idea of what the room looks like in full.

I have seen some nice comic rooms.  This is the BEST.  So classy, clean, well designed. I would just spend every day sitting in that room.  WOW!  Are the sets behind the inserts?  Fantastic Four seems to be split up.

Thank you so much for the kind words!

The comic covers are laid out randomly (well, not randomly -- I took a lot of care to make sure no two covers that were too similar were adjacent, on the same row, etc.).  I tried to spread things out across the major titles / characters (for example, JIM and Thor count as one), with each of them getting a similar amount of representation.  Obviously there are multiple Spidey covers, FF covers, etc.  Trying to make the covers correspond to the contents of the drawers just wouldn't work given the vast disparities in issue counts -- a short run like Nick Fury or Silver Surfer would otherwise be swallowed up in a 90-book drawer, whereas AF/ASM takes up more than eight drawers because the whole top row is half-depth (45 books per drawer).

Again, I really appreciate the compliments ... I have been having so much fun with my collection the past two years (I got back into this in March 2017) and my only regret is not starting up again sooner!

Trying to organize a little better in the hobby room. Still have to pull out more loose Joe's for the display.

I want to do a Joe display ala Round dome in the center of the room. 

 

 

I am always buying Car parts, Ferrari collectibles, etc  and I bought a Ferrari Steering wheel from a guy in Los Angeles. When he shipped it he wrapped it in a copy of the La Times, Just so happened to be Stan Lee's Obituary and write up so I got two cool items in one.

I need a single rear landing gear to complete my Rattler. Surely you've got a spare somewhere in that pile of goodness! Shake it loose! :baiting:

I wish I could help you but that parts plane gave up all it's parts to complete another one. If I find one in the spare bin you can have it.

@PKJ I see that Devastator hiding back there. More Transformers goodness hiding in storage? I loved the G1 toys as a kid, but since we were poor, I never had any of the big hero pieces; I think the biggest one I had was Optimus Prime. Very nice room, well done.

Just giving you a hard time, my friend. They definitely don't grow on trees. I've been trying to find one that isn't bent/stressed at a not-crazy price for about a year now. The hunt continues! I never would have thought that I'd find a minty cockpit/turret glass with unbroken tabs before I found a nice landing strut, and yet that's how it worked out.

A little further again! :whee:4435A68C-7FFE-4A8A-B870-C53D0C0F6211.thumb.jpeg.5614779a8273f61a6aa8ce8bb3bcdb59.jpegF85DD234-2C5B-4CF6-94ED-73A651E9711F.thumb.jpeg.bf65cc0f32096d7ca797dd997b08672f.jpeg

This is amazing.  Is this room in your basement or upstairs?  Climate controlled for those AB winters?  :)

Thanks for the kind comments! It is in the basement. Windows were just replaced with triple pane (5 mm per pane) with 100% uv protection. There is a dehumidifier that is destined for the room.  The heat is forced air and in floor heating.  Environment should be good!
