Hey fellas,

Been working on my new Man-Cave since the wife and I bought a new house in October of last year. Been slow going. It's still a WIP, but it's getting closer to it's final stage. Needs to be cleaned up and final organization finished. But I thought I'd share this WIP pic anyway:

Speechless, huge man cave to be sure. The 1:1 ladies are attention getters.

Hehe. There are actually seven of them altogether. Over the years they’ve freaked more than a couple repairmen out when they headed into the basement of our old house to get to the utility room. One guy almost screamed, thinking he was bumping into a real person. My wife finds it humorous.

This is truly a very impressive space -- part library, part video (dvd) store, part action figure display, part wax figure museum (except with dummies). And I don't know where you guys find these cool wives of yours... Wink

Impressive mate, what a great space you have there. Love the ladies, they add a certain something for sure.

Yeah, I lucked out when I met my wife. But getting to her was quite the trial; I went thru more than my fair share of psychos, and had nearly given up on women altogether.

“My Girls” (as my wife calls them), were oddly my sort-of reintroduction to 1/6th. Scary thing is, those mannequins cost less to buy and clothe (not to mention easier), then the majority of my 1/6 figures.

Thanks. And good luck in your search for a house with a Man-Cave of your own. I never thought I’d have a place like this in my lifetime. The entire downstairs of our new house, aside from the utility room, is all set aside for my junk. There’s a bathroom and what was a bedroom (now my music room where I house all my CDs, my drum kit and piano).

And don’t worry, the wife has her spaces, too. She finally has the 3 seasons porch she’s always wanted, a big walk-in closet, her own office, and the corner lot she’s dreamed about since she was a kid (I’m not entirely selfish).

Oh I believe that. Often when I buy clothing for a sixth-scale figure I think to myself whether it would have been less expensive in 1:1. And it very often is...

Very cool! I feel like. A professor type will walk from behind the bookcases and start telling my about a Cthulhu legend. Very intellectual looking escape place. In my mind, I pretend the 1:1 are Fembots you created. Lol!

Thanks. I’m hoping it will turn out to be an intellectual escape. The table in the center, filled with all the figures right now, is actually one I purchased for a chess table.

Hmmm... Fembots... if only I had the technical skill to make that happen... Twisted Evil

I'm happy to see her in her proper size greatness instead of the minuscule size elsewhere.

All of us should check out our signature and make sure it is how we want it (i.e. quip, pic, etc.).

Thanks, dadrab. I feel pretty lucky to have it.

Did a little more work yesterday, and have all the figures off that center table. The three steel grey “legs” leaning up against the DVD shelves is for a 8’ x 2.5’ butcher block work bench that’s going to go in the back by the display cabinets. Then I’ll finally have some place to work on my figers without cluttering up my office desk.

Still a WIP. Need to finalize cleaning and putting stuff away. But this is pretty much it in a nutshell. Moving around too much tends to make me ill, so it's slow going. Believe it or not, the wife helped me carry that monster butcher-block table top into the basement. Not doing too much today, not feeling well, so I decided to take a few quick pics.

I don't have a man cave.

I have a bed room, a spare room that is mostly a storage room, and an actual storage unit.

I keep a comfortable folding chair with a LED lantern and some bottled water at the storage unit.

I occasionally go to the storage unit for peace and quiet as well as solitude and being around my 1:6 needful things.

One day, I'll have a worthy man cave.

Oddly enough, no. Music is pretty important to me, and there’s another room in the basement set aside for just that; but in the Cave I tend to prefer the quiet.

Yep I agree with GF I am envious too, I have a little I room (former bedroom) I call my project room where my main collection is.


Oh BTW I have the same two mermaid statues (the one by the light switch) from the SUMMIT COLLECTION. (yep I collect mermaid statues)

There was a sitcom YES, DEAR that addressed the subject of a man cave in a third season episode.

The lead character was forced to move all his stuff ("junk") to a storage unit and found other men who did the same in the same facility. Their units essentially became a "hang out" for the guys. Each unit was essentially a man cave.

I'm not quite there yet, but to be honest . . . I've thought about it.

Thanks fellas.

Bad Wolf — Glad to hear I’m not the only one who collects mermaids. If TBL ever made one, I’d probably go bankrupt trying to buy them all.

Chung — I’ve seen that episode (and the one from Two and a Half Men where Allen was living in a storage unit); it sounds feasible. Just before we were able to move into our new house we had to rent a temperature controlled storage unit for about three months, since we closed on the old and the new house on the same day. The guy who owned the place told us about a woman who stored her massive wine collection and books there, and she had a nice chair and reading lamp, as well. She’d spend hours, I guess, reading and sampling her wine. Sounded pretty cool to me; I just wish I could have run into her to see how it was set up.
