So basically, as well all know, I'm a big geek for Joss Whedon and his many awesomtastical shows. I would even say it borders on obsession, but hey who doesn't have one of those right? *g* I've probably spent into the hundreds on my collection of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse DVDs, books, and other memorabilia. But one of my favorite things to collect are the figurines, more precisely the 6' action figures (and not the ones with all those big, clunky, move-able joints, because those are lame). I've been collecting them for years, and keep them all in this nice glass china cabinet in my dinning room. They are always a conversation starter for any 1st timer at my place, and you find out very quickly how I feel about Joss Whedon.
There are a couple other figurines I would like to add to the collection, in and outside of the Whedonverse. Some Lost figures might be nice, if I ever get around to buying some of those. I've been waiting for them to come out with Supernatural figures for 5 years now and they still haven't, and I've read there might not be much hope for it. All they have released are those busts that to me are not very good at all.
I've seen others make their own Buffyverse figures, so I've decided to do just that. Make my own custom Dean and Sam figures. I'm going to be making them as 12' figures (Ken or G.I.Joe size) just because that is the only size I can even conceive how to make. I've ordered the parts I need, the clothing, etc from ebay and am just waiting for it all to arrive so I can put them together. I also recently added the 12' sideshow Faith figure to my collection so she can stand beside Dean and Sam on their shelf in Ye Almighty Display Case. I've always liked the thought of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Supernatural Crossover, particularly Faith meeting the Winchesters, and Faith/Dean. Together they will forever protect my apartment!
While waiting for all my parts to get here (bad thing about ordering things online...the waiting!), I decided to prepare Ye Almighty Display Case for their arrival since it was looking rather dusty. Now it all seems so shiny, and the anticipation is only getting worse! I want my Dean and Sam figures! Faith is all lonely in there.

I also went out today and got stands for Dean and Sam when they are finished. They were plain white, so I decided to give them a paint job. You probably won't be able to see much of it once the figures are in and their feet cover up most of it, but I gave them both wooden floors with Devil' Traps (design from Bobby's panic room) on the bases. I also painted the bars that will be behind their backs black so they would match Faith's stand. They still need a bit touching up. I made a mistake on the one Devil's trap, but like I said their feet will be covering it (can you tell which?). More pictures coming after Dean and Sam are finished.
