The bust, plus the paint job, ran me about $500-550.

No question that's Michael Keaton's face. I mean, the Bat insignia gives it away, but just looking at the scrunched up lips and the chin - that sculptor did a good rendition of Keaton.

I'm confused by your post. I never suggested it wasn't Keaton's face. It most definitely is.

Nah, I'm just saying that as an observation. That sculpt is pretty good.

Thanks. They look really good with the frames you chose and the lighting in the room.

Finally got the Samsung HL-T4675S that I won in a free raffle the other week and want to share new my bedroom set up!



TV is on my desk, hence the laptop. At under 12 inches deep, I still have plenty of law school study space. DVD Player is a Phillips DVP5960 which I picked up pretty cheap on Amazon along with an HDMI cable.

Here's the rest of the room and collection. Posters are Six Feet Under, All the Real Girls, Before Sunset, and the album cover of Let's Get It On. Frames are custom except Six Feet Under which is from Ikea.

TV Series, Box Sets, and Criterions:






Not loving having the recliner sticking out in the doorway, but it's sort of the best place for it so I can still recline and watch TV.



Inside the cabinets. Took two pics of each because of the sliding cabinet (even though I don't think the pics are close enough to see the titles that well, but you can always check out my collection on DVDAf.

Movies generally:

How do you buy them though? They don't seem to have a webstore.

He doesn't sell them directly from his website. He usually sculpts these for specific people who pay him to do so, and then if he has a few sculpts left over, he'll sell them off. I had to get my through a different means, usually forums that discuss this stuff and someone had a few left over.

I'd contact him and just ask, though. He sometimes does have a few. I remember him selling the Joker sculpt a few months back.

I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing but it was worth 39 bucks!

Rmick,

Is that the 8-Disc Infernal Affairs box set in your collection?

If so, I'm insanely jealous

haha, no. They're movies I bought at Blockbuster for $2.99 without the real covers so I turned them inside out and wrote the names on the spines.

Where can I get a good shelf that will hold atleast 200 DVDs or so (I have a little under 200 but I also keep my Nine Inch Nails collection on the top and it's always growing). I bought one at Best Buy a while back for about $30 and it is a total piece of shit. It leans at about a 70 degree angle and looks like it is ready to snap any day now. I see some nice ones on here.

Edit: Here is the one I have now.

The IKEA Billy bookcase is nice, and with 2 extra shelves, holds a lot of DVDs.

It is. Ordered it from the link in the dvdtalk review right after it came out. My roommates thought I was insane when it came in the mail, and although Infernal Affair 3 isn't so hot, it was still well worth it. It's a gorgeous set.

I was thinking of buying this from best buy, it looks like a good price and holds a lot of DVDs.

agreed! i just recently purchased one myself and am in the process of moving over my dvds to a shelf system... FINALLY. hope to post pics soon!

price isn't bad either. depending on what color shelf you get, it's anywhere from $59.99 - $99.99, i believe. it come with five shelves, extras are $10 each.
