Anyone know who this is:
 
http://www.amazon.co...=A3I57WCH67MB0Q
 
I was thinking about buying in bulk from them if possible.


I don't know much about them, but they have a much bigger selection on their web site and although the cases are 2 cents more, the shipping is slightly cheaper ($2.39 to CA instead of $3.99).

I must be missing something... the only door that looks open just looks like a normal door in/out of the room.

Looking at third picture down, two doors side-by-side.  Usually closets are recessed into rooms.  Maybe I'm wrong.

 

Edit:

 

That's a tall tower!  You attach them together, don't you?  Not worried about it being too top heavy?

Luckily all of the base boards stick out pretty far, so they've actually well leveraged.

 

Of course the only real test would be an earthquake, which is currently out of stock in my area. :*(

We'll get an Earthquake sooner or later. That's when the real test begins. 

 

If you live in Orange County, you would've felt the minor one we had 2ish weeks ago. :lol:

I'm in the Bay Area, so rarely ever has anything major.

 

Worst I've experienced here was a 5.0, and everything faired pretty well, but it was only like 10 seconds. so meep, meep! :3

It's been about a year since I moved to the new place so I took some crappy cell phone pics of the new game room. Still not happy with how it's organized but it's a work in progress. Most of the new stuff is 3DS, WiiU and XB1. Other notables are Landstalker (Genesis), SSB64, Banjo Kazooie 64, boxed Sidearms and Cadash (TG16), boxed Mickey's Magical Quest 1+2, Gruntys Revenge and Motocross Maniacs (GBA). Modded a KI fightstick. Combined my wife's DS stuff with mine, so there's a few more doubles there now but I think it's all alphabetical except for 1 sonic Rush game I misplaced.

 

Added a comparison shot of my 3DSXL next to my GBA Micro. So happy to finally have a portable system that's easy on big hands. It's super comfy with the circle pad Pro, best ergonomics I've ever experienced in a handheld.

Dang Kurosaki-san your collection is off the hook.

 

I really like your display case and figures. Also the katana in front of your TV

will inspire respectful behavior in the presense of such a a magnificant collection.

 

Where'd you get the display case? I'd love to get one just like that.

Anyone here familiar with TimeWalkGames? Just found out they're shutting down. I only discovered them a roughly a year ago and wanted to pick up some SNES repros but they were just out of my price range. I literally bought a game from them a month ago since it was on sale. They recently shut down and I don't know of any other reputable sites that sell CiB (as in, with an original cardboard style box and not a plastic case) repros.

 

 

I've thought about that so many times that it's ridiculous, but it's easier said then done. You get the most value out of eBay but that's time consuming, heavy with fees, and a huge risk due to scammers. Selling on sites like CAG aren't much better, outside of less risk. 

 

What I do know is I wanna get rid of most of my guide collection but guides have lost so much value over the last 1-2 years. And no, it's not just because of free online FAQs since these same guides used to sell for above MSRP just a few years back. 

Not interested in taking them ALL off your hands, but may be very interested in quite a few of those guides depending on what you've got! Send me a PM if you're still looking to sell some!  Thanks!

The display case is from Ikea; *lighting is sold separately for $15

How is the case in terms of keeping out dust? I'd love to use this to display some of my favorite stuff. 

 

Still, kinda pricey for $65, plus another $15 for lighting. Does Ikea ever have sales?

Detolf is one of the most sought after display case of figure collectors. Ikea always runs out of this case.

This is not my collection but heres an example of how figures look like inside

You can also search google for "detolf figure collection" to see more samples. Actually im planning on buying some of these cases in the future.

Yeah, but that doesn't really answer my question... there's gaps between the side panels and doors, so I'm guessing it's not all that great at keeping out dust. 

 

But it looks damn nice. I'll probably end up picking one up.

I had figures in one for a couple of years. They ended up with some dust on them, but not that much.

I only had it for about 2 months, so far no dust. It's pretty pricey but like I told others, you spend so much on these figures, you might as well display them elegantly. Theres other cheaper lighting solutions, Ikea have some that's battery operated but they don't shine as bright as the outlet ones. Also their plastic like, the one I has is metal.

The gaps are only on the sides of the front glass, with a small gap at the very top of the front as well.  

 

It's even more beautiful in person, especially with the light on reflecting on the figs. The light shines so lovely off the Zelda XL.

I may have to order one of those. My Batman vs Killer Croc statue has been in the box since I got it last year because I had no book cases to put it on. If this one feels solid I may have to look into getting multiples and lining them up like you - just gotta see how it feels with the heavy statues.
