Lets say you are outfitting your office. You the Head guy for it and you have about $100,000 to spend on fun stuff but no more than say 5k on any one item.

What props / displays are essential???

My top 10 thoughts after a whole five min of thinking about it are:

1) ST:TOS Landing Party Display
2) SW ANH Stor Trooper Armor
3) Various Light Sabers
4) The Enterprise
5) Death Star
6) Falcone
7) Swords from LOR
8) Vader
9) B9 (Theres the $5k item!)
10) Flynn's sign

Other thoughts? I know there is a lot I missed!!!

(Oh and good to see you all again. It's been a long time!) :love:love

Duh. Tardis! Plain and simple. How can you have a cool office without having a lit up 9 foot tall by 4 foot wide blue box in it?

If I had $100,000 to spend I'd be building the freakin building itself! :D
(You'd have to for the ideas I've got!)

Doors to rooms would be designed like fictional doorways such as the Wardrobe from The Lion, The witch, and The Wardrobe, StarGate, Tardis, etc. I had a list last time I had this idea. Each adjoining room would equally be themed. One would be a pirate ship theme, though not sure what the door would look like! XD

I'm more of a creature model lover, especially of mythical beasts. Once I get a decent place to build things (IE: My own small studio attached to a small house) I'll be making as much as I can, including the mentioned doorways.

With that kind of money, I'd have to modify your 'rule' and blow it all on a screen-used Holy Grail from IJ :)

Mike, I envy you ..... and I don't at the same time :lol
:lol

My wife keeps telling me I need to focus. I tell her I do! I only do:

- Star Wars OT
- Ghostbusters
- Doctor Who
- Indy
- BTTF

Oh and more recently Star Trek (curse you Sporak), oh and I have a couple Goonies items now, oh and I'm getting a JP push helmet, oh and I want a Cryocan...

Damn. Ya, I don't focus...

Crap! Add James Bond to that! Connery stuff like Odd Job's hat and the Attache case.

I have/am working on a good amount of the stuff on my list. I'm 30 now so I figure I still have time to acquire a good amount of that. It is a dream list though, gimme $100,000 and I could get everything there at a quality that would satisfy me.

Too bad about that $5,000 rule, I want a Delorean! :D

This just reminded me of something I saw a little while ago about the SuperGroup marketing agency and their new office:

ai3 : results : the supergroup

I think it's more Mirrors Edge (heavily stylised freerunning game for those who don't know) than Kubrick, and I think it's hillarious that they've got a woman trying to use an old iMac as a touchscreen in one of the pictures, but it's still a pretty cool/sci-fi-y office...

Oh and I believe the article I originally read about this suggested that everyone in the company wore rank pins...

Oh and all the doors have to be proximity sensored and pneumatic sliders like the ones in Star Trek. ;) It's the little touches that help you know.
