And who says I need a Turbobooster. Figured I'd be keeping this a while and I had some jacks left over from my Toploader NES AV mod that didn't go so well (wired the circuit incorrectly and fried the PPU but thats another story) so I tossed them into the Turbo-Grafx. Pretty happy with the result and the picture looks sooo much better.

Since I'm moving out of my apt in like a week I thought I'd take a few photos of my stuff. I have some more statues and stuff packed up but this is most of my display stuff.

After I get into the new apt and unpack I'm hoping to finally have a place to display my games instead of taking up the entire walk in closet.



Damn those are some awesome posters and figures. I never realized how big those First4Figures statues (that's who made that Minda/Wolf Link figure, right?) were.

Media bookcase with 360, PS3, Wii, Vita, and 3DS cases, anime and game figures, and some manga and artbooks. I couldn't fit all the game cases on display, so many are in storage.

Rest of my collection (anime and figures): http://myfigurecolle...n.net/blog/7712



Man, your room is so nice and clean looking.

I hope when I get my own place, I do organize my stuff to look nicer. Too bad apartments in Chicago/suburbs are so damn expensive.

On an unrelated note, the amount of video game related merchandise is getting a bit ridiculous... and expensive.

Yep. The Mononoke Variant is pretty sweet. I actually only had to pay the 45 (or whatever it was) bucks for it. I just had to wait in a long-ass line at San Diego Comic-Con.

I will say the Mondo booth at comic-con is pure insanity, but at least you can get stuff. Unlike when the online drops happen.


Damn! That's awesome!

Yep - they made the Wolf Link, Fierce Deity Link, Skull Kid, Dark Link and Sheik ones.

Damn! That's awesome!


Yeah - I had to spend untold hours in line at the Mondo booth over that weekend but I got a few pretty sweet prints out it that I hung up. The Mononoke, Batman, and Adventure Time one. I got a bunch more and just ended up selling off those ones. I just pretty much would get into the line like 3 - 4 hours after that last drop and stand there until they announced the next one. The security would come tell us to get lost but then 100+ people would just hop right back in line. Very competitive lol.

The only one I missed that I wanted that weekend was the Olly Moss Batman one. Even being in line like 2 hours before they announced it as dropping the line was like 250+. It was leaked online or something that there was gonna be one so the line was huge.

It's built!

Just gotta put the toe molding back on, cut the shelves (which will take all of 5 minutes with the miter saw), then slap the tabs on the brackets and load em up!

Although I don't think that I bought enough material for the actual shelves. I'll prolly need to grab some more 1x6" tomorrow and cut a few more. But that's just a 5 minute job ;)

Yuppers!

Took about the first 2 Terminator movies to get the frame and whatnot all built, then I spent the 3rd movie cutting shelves and getting the mess sorted out and on the shelves (there were DVDs all over the house at this point).

Looks great, though personally I would have painted or stained the wood;)

Seriously though, you need a better camera. Gotta do them selves justice8-)

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

Nice work on the mod. However, you still might want to get a Turbo Booster Plus as it has built in memory for game saves.

Eventually I may end up with a complete set, minus sports and wrastlin' games. I refuse to have all that filler crap in my collection just for the sake of having it.

MLB Featuring Ken Griffey, Jr. is a genuinely good baseball game. This is coming from a guy who hates baseball and sports in general. And although I stopped liking wrestling years ago, I still think WWF War Zone and WWF Attitude are entertaining games.

Just sayin'.

I'm sure there are some decent sports titles. I like the Blitz and Jam series of games, but I'm not dying to get them, that's for sure. I HATE wrestling. Those just won't happen.

I liked Mike Piazza's Strike Zone. That game let you edit EVERY player's name, attributes, etc. as well as the teams name, colors, etc.

I remember I sat there with a few of my friends for hours re-creating our little league team and playing a season with them. It was awesome.
