    ***EDIT***
    I added more framed pictures to display around my SS props and moved somethings around.

    New pics up of the following.....

    ANH display 99% finished... 1 prop left to go, can you guess what?. :D :) ;)

    ESB display almost finished.... Need to finish up ESB MSH2 Boba helmet and possibly get the Finescale models Falcon kit.

    Godzilla display 99% finished... Need to get some good pics of 1954 Godzilla in action to display with it.

    BSG display 97% finished.... Need to get some good pics to display with SS props and possibly a 12" Apollo figure. "I May" display the new BSG SS Viper and Raider kits as well, still deciding with these.
    ***END EDIT***

    Well, I have decided to totally redo and rethink my prop/museum room. I have totally removed all of my classic toys, Gi-joes, ETC and focused only on it being a movie museum room.

    I have moved things around into new areas of the room, so this is still a work in progress.

    This room consists of almost all of my top 10 movies that I have liked since a child.
    I have room to display the following..

    ANH
    ESB
    ROTJ
    JP
    Battlestar Galactica
    Godzilla 1954 (all godzilla really)
    King Kong 1933 (all King Kong really)

    Batman the movie (1968) If I can find a movie poster.

    Star Trek TOS will be in here as well.

    I have decided to do a movie poster of each and then a Studio Scale prop (if available), regular model if not, may be a prop or two.

    I will also be adding a pic of any Studio Scale prop in it's movie environment like I did with the AT-AT.

    LMK what you think.

    not sure if you wanted a repro or not for the batman poster, but they have some pretty interesting ones on there.

    rooms looking terrific. i gotta redo mine, lose some stuff and just sorta... expand it from one corner to an overall "room" feel.

    Oof....Thats what I'm looking for..

    Thanks.... :D

    It dosn't matter if it is a repro.

    Most of my posters are repros anyway except the JP, BSG (in the mail), and the Godzilla is an offical reprint from the makers of the origonal and it is NOT a reproduction.

    Thanks for the comps as well. :D

    Thanks for the comps guys..

    Yeah, I decided to paint the shelves the same color as the walls so that the attention is on the prop or model and that the self dosn't stick out and distract from it.

    Besides, it goes with the unintentional "blue screen" effect the walls have. :lol
    I'm trying to have it look like a museum or an exhibit.

    I still have more to do in the ESB section with my ESB Boba helmet and SS Taun-Taun.

    I'm waiting for my BSG poster to arrive any day now and I'm having a custom self built for my SS Raider kit to sit on. I'll get pics of that when it is done.

    The biggest thing is pictures, I've got a friend looking to get me some good stills of pics so I can have them printed out and display with the props.

    Coming along very nicely, Lynn. I like your juxtaposition of the screen shot from ESB with the MR AT-AT. :)

    Have you seen the 1/6-scale Medicom RAH Godzilla figure? This might be a nice addition to your display. Strictly-speaking, it's not a reproduction of Godzilla, but a 1/6-scale repro of the costume that actor Haruo Nakajima wore when portraying the big lizard in the original film -- complete with a 1/6-scale guy inside the suit.

    You can find out more about it here:

    That's looking really nice Lynn.

    I may be biased, but I love the look of the props etc when they're displayed with the respective movie poster and some stills.

    I think it looks great.

    I love the idea of displaying the movie poster next to the props, I was impressed by cking's recent display thread where he used that same idea.

    The wallcolour looks good, too. :thumbsup

    Yes you do.. but it is EVEL, not Evil Knievel. :D

    Another big Icon of my childhood..

    I used to have my entire Evel Knievel collection of toys on the wall there and had several pics and an autograph up. I took them all down to make room for my prop room.

    I was using his pic as a place holder for ST TOS pics to go there.

    I'll put them up else where in another room.

    Your display is why I decided to revamp mine into the way I'm doing it...

    I think it gives it bit more meaning to them then just having a bunch of stuff on a shelf or stuck in a case and try to explain to people where they are from etc...

    They are the Horizon viynl model kits from 1993 pulled from the studio scale maquttes.

    The T-rex was the very first airbrushed paint job that I ever did 1993.

    I entered it into a large model show that same fall, not only did I get first place in the figure class, I also won best paint, and "the peoples choice" as well. :D It was a fond show.

    The Raptor has made it in the Finescale modellers readers gallery.

    The Brachiosaur and Spitter have also gotten first places in shows back in there day.

    I am sorry, I meanth Propazoid's room. It was a bit too late when I typed that. I meanth that, however the bluescreen effect is cool, it might distract from the posters and the props. The first thing I saw when I looked at the pictures was a big blue wall, and then the cool items before it. If you take a look at Propazoids's collection, you see that hte walls are a very easy on the eyes colour. Your eyes are directly focussed at the props, and it gives a great museumlike display.

    Just my humble opinioun of course.

    Yep, Zoid has a great collection and his color choise is great for his collection.

    Since 3/4's of my collection is SS model props I felt the blue color is a more then fitting color and choice for them.

    I have had white or beige colors for all of my offices in the past and things always get lost or washed out in the color, especiallly when photographed, this was a much better and needed choice/change.

    Thanks,
    Lynn

    I wanted to elimate selves for these three SS models and do them ala Cking style, so I mounted them to the wall using 1/2" pipe fittings floor flanges.

    It worked out rather well IMO.

    Very nice displays you have there, gotta love the FETT. I also think that the sidshow Kong armature is a really neat piece, I'm glad they're doing it, it will look great in your room.
