    THEY MAKE HIERONYMUS BOSCH ACTION FIGURES???

    wow kool I could almost see some of those ultra creepy Hieronymus garden of earthly delights/hell figures in here. Personally, I just don't "get" the figurine thing. I'd much rather have original art than some mass produced plastic stuff... though that's a kool doom you have Maurice!

    oh well, to each his own : )

    I would have loved to have had a Fisher-Price Garden Of Earthly Delights Playset as a kid. Or, uh, now.

    Nice, Spyda! They are beautiful shelves and display your collection extremely well. Congratulations on your very first home of your own! :)

    I have very little in the way of collection, and no place to put it yet. I'm supposed to have a room of my own up in the attic. Everything I have is from 2004 - boy am I behind in collecting!

    But you inspire me, Spyda - I'll start thinking of how to display stuff!

    Those are so awesome. I'd love to own a couple of those myself.

    Thanks Andrea. I think my decorating cues come out of utility rather than any innate sense of style, but I am quite enjoying making this new home my own. The most fun will be putting up the art. It's been sitting in tubes for so long I don't even remember what half of it looks like. I just pulled out some Dan Brereton stuff the other day that I didn't even remember having.

    I no longer have the desire to play with action figures. I do still appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into them and can appreciate them as art. Hence the display.

    I'd like to see your collection though. Get a camera out to work pronto. I'd interested to see what the Darkhorse offices look like.

    I have always loved the "Bird With Letter" guy. When I was little my parents had an art book with a big color plate of The Temptation of St. Anthony in it, and I used to stare at it for hours. Something about his little tin-funnel hat and ice skates...he just looks so harmless amongst all the scary monsters and flames and nekkid people. Like he wandered in from another painting: "Oh, hi! I have your mail. Looks like Netflix DVDs and a birthday card. There you go. Have a nice day..." And off he skates, into a children's book illustration or something.

    My choices would have to be HELMETED BIRD MONSTER 'cause it reminds me of the cute guys in Jim Henson's Labyrinth and then because I'm such a sucker for mermaids, Knight and Mermaid.

    If you want to get the tots started early on Bosch, I recommend this awesome book.
