Yeah that top shelf is the stuff (my) dreams are made of. Thanks for sharing
Vintage shelf day!
Roger I was just admiring this pic on your instagram a few minutes ago. What a shelf!!!! I mean, I don't think you need me to tell you at this point how much I adore that King Flasher. The toy will always remind me of Chris [ ] as we shared so, so many conversations - and chases - over him. The FAH line in general is a stunner, but what a keystone piece. And then that Tiger-7, talk about bringing the heavy hitters. Some day, maybe, I will be able to adopt one. I don't need an army - but I envy those who have them - but just waiting for the right moment when I can snag one and have the funds. Of course, the recent auctions for these have gotten so crazy it could be I might never actually be able to have success; but in such case I will have the wonderful photos from collections like yours to enjoy. This shelf pic makes me so happy. And yes, I cannot leave before taking a deep bow as well to that giant Majinsai. Roger you are just killing me with this photo. Congratulations on a epic display shelf.
* and heck yeah, all those packaged goodies I can see photobombing are certainly not hurting matters any!!
@ultrakaiju Thank you very much Steve, I am glad that you enjoy the photo and that at least it gives you a little happiness and distraction to cope with the confinement. My first intention was to put the photo only here on the SB board, but I can no longer use Flickr and used to take the photo link from there and regularly I use pinterest to take the photo link to paste it here but for some reason I cannot do it correctly with the tablet or phone, so I had to use the IG link. The same thing happens to me with the King Flasher, it is almost impossible not to remember Chris because thanks to him I acquired a taste for this figure. I understand your concern and that you may have that feeling of perhaps not being able to catch the Tiger Seven as they become more expensive every day, but believe me, the right Tiger is waiting for you and when you least expect it you will have a great specimen in your collection. I remember the first Tiger Seven that I saw at auction was almost a perfect specimen even with the gloves and it sold for much less than the current ones that are in worse condition, but at that time it seemed like a lot of money and who could know what would happen to the prices later. Before having this Tiger, I was about to win another one with more scratches and the most peeling belt and with yellow spots on the legs and chest, but I lost it by 1,000¥ and time later I could score this one.
heres half of a vintage shelf sporting some of my favorites
You’ve got an excellent shelf full of weirdos there, Michael. Congratulations completing the lines you were hunting. So much goodness.
Woah, thats a great looking shelf michael. Particularly envious of those Nitto yokai.
Beautiful shelf, Michael, what a great grouping of toys you have collected. Major kudos are deserved for the Nitto yokai of course, but I also am so pleased to see the Salamander AG guys, they are always an incredible treat and give me a massive grin. And that Gebacondor, wow, so lovely. Great stuff man, a shelf you can easily stare at for ages.
