I am horrendous at cutting an even line. How do you guys effectively cut even lines for cover-projecting? Even when I use the thing you put the paper on and slide the blade to cut, I have never ever gotten it even. It's always diagonal, cutting off some of the graphic and leaving some white. I'm even worse free-handing.

Have you tried a ruler and Xacto/box cutter?

I just have one of those cheap portable paper cutters. Works great just gotta do your best to line it up and eyeball it correctly.

I don't understand how you can not cut something straight with those trimmers... unless you're using it wrong? And even then, I don't how you'd manage that.

I'm completely cool with sexy anime figures (even the nude ones) but those dolls... man... they're just creepy. I'd feel dirty if I owned any of those.

Same, though I don't even think I have a nude doll. I don't remember if I have one where you can remove the clothing on.

Edit: Actually, I don't like joints for the most part. I don't own a single Figma. I do have Nendoroids, but the joints on those aren't really the same.

I think it's because they sorta blur the line between reality and fantasy. They're fictional characters but the dolls themselves are like real child-sized versions.

But joints bother the hell out of me too, which is why I don't care much for pose-able figures, even stuff like Play-Arts or some of the Marvel/DC Direct figures. I love Figmas though... they do a great job of hiding joints and staying true to the character.

I understand it's a hobby though so if you enjoy, go for it. There are worse things you can do as a hobby... like the Left Hand Killer.

I'm even worse free-handing.

My best recipe for cutting straight and clean covers is to use a box cutter (I prefer the larger handle than Xacto knifes), a transparent 12-inch ruler (transparent is important to help see if you are cutting straight or at a slight angle, and to make sure you don't under or over cut border wise), and a cutting mat (like this one on Amazon, or junk cardboard works fine).

The only reason I have one of those cutting mats is because my wife went through a craft / sewing stint, but those work great for cutting covers.

I certainly understand that. I feel the same way with some of the current 3D modeling in games... I will not get Beyond Two Souls no matter how good it is... it is just freaking me out :)

Even with the DD/BJD dolls, some just totally freaks me out too. For me, Dollfie Dream with characters based on anime etc is pretty much the most I will go for. Everyone draws that line differently and some owners I am certain that I do not want to meet in any way.

I certainly don't push this on people... There are places where it is more appropriate.

I also don't like suggestive poses/figures etc... those are just too much for me. For figures, cute outfit and preferably a weapon is my choice :)

One of the goal for me is to take good photos of my figures/statues and that sort of expanded into wanting to take pictures of DD. There are many good photographers using them as model of sorts and I want to share a few link, these are just pics taken by others that I browsed through just now and think is pretty good. Nothing unsafe etc and I do wish you and others to take a quick look just so you guys have a better reference than just the basement pics of Chu's dolls...

Random question about my set up. I have a LED strip behind my HDTV for some cool lighting, and I'm using Scotch tape to tape the strip against the back of the TV. Is Scotch tape a bad idea? I'm wondering if the lights will burn it...

could just go ahead and use electrical tape to be safe, doesn't cost much more at all and is more durable (I've found at least).

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Neither of those two tapes are ideal for the job at hand. This will hold it for as long as you'll need and is surprisingly easy to remove if you need to.

Edit: I should mention that you can get that stuff at any auto parts store or Home Depot/Lowes.

That's why I figured Fuck it, and decided to grab all that I want now while they're still affordable. Thank gawd I've had titles like Conker since launch so I didn't have to pay insane amounts of money for em. I managed to grab the last 15 or so titles for under 20-a-pop.

Back to the increasingly unaffordable SNES collection...

Man wiggy, all your boxes look so freaking nice! I've really got to get some more shelves (and money:lol:), and box up the few I've got. N64 games have definitely gone up in price like crazy, so mad at myself for selling my copies of DK64, Mario Kart 64, and OoT. Side question: what boxes are you using for the big box games like Stadium and Mario Party?

Thanks! I'm so happy to have at least one console "complete"!

I make doubles (game shark, memory cards) and triples (games you mentioned) by stacking/combining UGCs basically. I did a writeup on TCP. It's actually pretty simple.

No, I can't get into tennis, even when Mario-afied. I would grab it if I found it for like 5 bucks, but it's not worth it to me at the current going prices. Also, before I get called out on not having it, SSB is not a franchise that I enjoy at all. Zero love for that game from me.

Glad I got my N64 collection from the used market. I probably averaged under $5 dollars per game even on 1st party titles. I still do have a couple titles left to get but I won't pay FMV for them.

I can't see paying $20 per 1st party title and then playing the game once or twice a year and it sits the rest of the time. In the last year I probably had like 20 N64 cart only titles added to my collection yet I played N64 for maybe an hour or two in the past year. It would be stupid for me to pay FMV.

Fair enough. How about Pokemon Puzzle League? Best puzzle game on the system.

It's one of those games that I'll keep an eye out for, along with that Disney/Mickey Magical Tetris Challenge game, but they weren't on my must have list is all. I'll still be buying N64 games, don't get me wrong. What I have now is just my complete "must-have" list, versus stuff that I would like to pick up at some point, or looks good enough for a few bucks investment (Penny Racers, Lego Racers, Power Rangers and some others were all a buck or less), but would be OK with not having.

Fair enough. If you haven't played it though you should. Basically Tetris Attack 2 and in my top 10 n64 games.

I checked my list and I still have 31 games on my N64 must have list but of them only Castlevania Curse of Darkness is over 25. (Starcraft and Bomberman 2nd attack would be nice if I find a deal but I can't see paying the price for Starcraft when the PC version is all over the place for 2.00 and it is better and if I'm going to splurge on a Bomberman it will be Saturn Bomberman). Like 17 of the 31 should be 10.00 or less.

Starcraft 64 has always been one game I've wanted because it's Starcraft on a console, but I never wanted to pay the going rate because, well, it's Starcraft on a console.

I'll put it on my new "keep an eye open for it" list ;) Thanks!

Bomberman 2 and Ogre Battle were my last two pickups, and would have been among the priciest, but I managed to get them in a trade :)

I think I paid ~20 for Starcraft. Was definitely one of the pricier loose N64 carts I've purchased in the last couple of years.

What's on your list? I do have a handful of dupes in my trade box.

Same here, which is why it took me so damned long to pick it up. I remember it being like 90 bucks when it came out. Freakin' nobody bough that game! I recall pricing used copies for $70 at the local game shop that I worked for way back then and almost laughing about it knowing that it would just sit on the shelf forever, even at 20%+ off the new price.

But, again, seeing how N64 prices are starting to climb, I didn't wanna wait like I did for EVO, Demon's Crest, and other SNES titles that have blow the Fuck up!

Beetle Adventure Racing is SOOOOO fun! Have great memories playing that with my siblings, IMO a better game than Mario Kart 64 (but maybe future titles have spoiled me). Banjo Kazooie is the only other title on your list I have, but I'm not willing to part with it I'm afraid.

I'm having a hard time justifying buying N64 titles lately, since I'm torn between the more comfortable and convenient virtual console, and having psychical cartridges for the games:-k

I've got an extra Turok 3. Negotiated a trade, then won a copy on eBay (bid was placed days earlier).
