Hi all, I am regular on SA Gamer and I love to collect figures, mostly Hot Toys & Gaming Statues. We have a collectible thread there, so decided to start one here. Post your collections here...

Will start with a few of my latest figures: (will add them via tapatalk)

Bud would you mind posting a full body shot of Batfleck?

He looks different to the promo and early versions. There was a lot of backlash about his body proportions, has there been a revision?

Sup. They did change him before release and the final product is amazing. Probably their best Batman to date. I am not going to unbox him now cuz the cape is attached to the backside of the box, in other words if I take him out now, then it would be very difficult to box him up again without folding the cape ect..

You can see the body in one of the pics. I will take more pics when I do put him in my display cabinet (First need to clean it again)

Meanwhile you can check out some review videos on youtube.

I only collect things that aren't really collectibles, like pens, caps, stamps, coins, keyrings etc.

Sweet man yeah I did see some pics online today. Thank goodness. When Cosplay Chris first posted his review of the figure I was so disappointed as I knew he had the potential to be the best looking bat yet.

Looks amazing now.

Ooo, wow man. Nice. Where does one shop for a glass cabinet ?

I mostly collect smaller cheap figures, mostly from NECA as the Hot Toys / Slide Show figures are so damn expensive, but you do get the best figures money can buy if you do buy them.

If I could choose one Hot Toy figure, it would probably be Robocop.

Edit: Not sure if you seen this site : http://projectmayhem.co.za/

Sup man yeah I know Reza from Project Mayhem very well. Bought a few things from him including my Kylo Ren & Selene from underworld.

Display cabinets are a bit expensive but I know the most popular are the detolfs, I don't like them cuz they are not sealed, meaning there is gaps between the glass for dust to enter and more cleaning required on regular occasions.

I made mine myself. Bought some wood, glass en lights, took me a day or two to build it. Running out of space though so need to build a new one soon.

If you have time, I would love to see a bigger picture of your display cabinet. Maybe I can get a friend to "copy" you if you don't mind.
As for cleaning , sometimes compressed air does not get all the dust off. Any tips ?

Sure. The angle of the photos with my phone makes the cabinet look weird but its 100% straight lol. Here you go

Impressive collection [MENTION=37878]Transformer09[/MENTION] and nice job on the cabinet as well.

The figures in my collection are mostly 7" (Mon-sieur Bome, NECA, McFarlane etc.)

I've been searching for a decent display cabinet for a few years already but new cabinets are just crazy expensive and the 2nd hand ones I've stumbled across are either extremely old-looking or just in a very bad condition.
Looking at yours though gives me some good ideas and I'm sure a friend of mine (who used to build and sell snake and reptile cages) can make me something similar.

Majority of my figures are still in their packaging because I don't want to leave them out in the dust.

Will post some pics as soon as I get around to taking some snaps.

Thanks guys. Will post some more pics overtime when I unbox the rest. Have a few gaming statues too.

Would be nice if the mods can make this a sticky so everyone with figures/collectibles ect can post their pics if they want.

You have no idea how hard it was to find that statue lol. I missed out on the collectors editions when they released. I have a PS4 so I got hold of someone that still had a XBOX One collectors edition still sealed. Very lucky find, bought it and sold the game.
