show your room (image heavy)

Recommended Posts

I really like to get into the more personal aspects of people's life and it's sometimes fun to see how everyone lives.  I'll start it off (I'm moving in January so maybe I'll post new picture then)

OK I admit this isn't really a picture of my room, but my room is where I do majority of my gaming and my GF recently got this imported for me so I wanted to show it off

Approx. 1/3rd of my PS3 collection.  Some I've passed, some I'm working on, and some are strictly for parties (Dragon's Crown and Tekken Tag Tournament 2)

North west corner of my room, queen sized bed, my closet which is mostly full of clothes, luggage, and boxes and in the very corner my bluray tower which has no more space. The very bottom is where I keep my 3DS collection which is fairly limited (Animal Crossing New Leaf, Fire Emblem Awakening, Mario Kart 7, Project X Zone, Shin Megami Tensei IV, and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy)

The Mario and Luigi figures and Dragon Quest Anniversary Collection were from ex-GFs who live in Japan and the drinks and bottle caps were from my trip to Japan in 2010

Smoking is bad for your kids!  This is my mini fridge with majority of my Dragon Quest blind box toys on display and the notebook is pretty much full of Japanese notes

South east corner of my room, which is pretty much the main attraction.  It's modelled after a multi bang (multi room) that are available in Korea.  I have a 40" 3-D 1080 Samsung LED TV, cable box with all channels (I work in an office for a cable provider), PS3 with 4 controllers, Wii with 4 controllers, and my computer hooked up via HDMI to a Samsung sound bar...oh and a PS2 I rarely ever touch

Oddly this is the part of my room that Japanese girls go CRAZY over, seriously they love it.  I've been collecting Super Mario Bros. Choco Eggs for just over 5 years now and there have been a total of 6 complete sets, I'm missing under 10 to complete them all.  Some random DQ stacker toys, a complete set of Mario Kart figurines, a complete set of Mario Party 9 cards (they were blind with a gummy), some Super Mario Bros sound makers my ex-room mate imported me (one makes the bing bing bing bing 1up 1up 1up 1up noise, the other does the pipe), and a Hudson Shooting Watch, the 2nd run of course.  If you are curious what Super Mario Bros. Choco Eggs are, imagine Kinder Eggs with toys that are actually cool

 

That's it, I'd really love to see everyone else's rooms and they favourite things.

 

A very small note to all of you guys out there.  I'm not an otaku, seriously.  I don't consider myself one, nor would I ever call myself one, but I do enjoy gaming and I grew up with Dragon Quest and Super Mario Bros. (hence my love for them).  All of my friends are Japanese and majority of them are girls (I'd say 90%) and they actually love my room.  Don't be afraid to invite girls over because you have geeky things lying around or be embarassed, you'd be surprised what a girl thinks of a guy who is himself and doesn't care what others think.  Of course it could also be a cultural thing, in Japan gaming is a normal hobby like sports or exercise.

you have a pretty cool room.

Mine is pretty boring.  It's usually somewhat disorganized.  On one wall, I have my piano.  Above it are two paintings:  One my best friend did of a Slime General (I forgot what they're called in the US version) and a tower from Mother 3.  The other is a painting I made of the final shot you see in mother 3.  

 

On my next wall, I have a game stand and my tv stand.  The TV stand is currently TV-less.  I'm currently between TVs.  Above it is a poster for Gundam Unicorn Ep6 and an autographed picture of John Rhys-davies as Gimli from LotR.  My uncle met him while working on a project and JRD was nice enough to do it for my uncle.  

Next is my desk, which takes up a corner.  My desk is pretty much useless.  My desktop PC is broken down.  I work from my laptop on it.  On the top part of my desk is my Gundam models.  I have them organized by series.  All of them are Universal Century-based.

I'd love to see the paintings and models if you have time to take some pictures, it sounds interesting.

I can't take any pictures of my room right now, but I can describe it.

 

Enter room. Walls chocolate brown(faded now).

 

To your left it the wall and a small shelf with Archie comics. Above that shelf are my awards for Junior Achievement. To your right is my double bed. It features blue sheets, a Pikachu blanket and several stuffed characters from Nintendo(including two Yoshi's and a DK)

 

Take a few more steps in. To your left is my closet, full of various things.

 

A few more steps in is the window, with beige curtains. Under it to the left is another shelf with some of my DVD's, books, and more Archie comics. Next to that is my laundry basket. Next to that is my dresser, with my small flatscreen tv, a DVD player, and a rotating shelf with my CD's and DS/3DS games.

 

Turn and face my final wall. Pinned on it is my Hunger Games calendar. Under that is another shelf with more Archie comics. On the wall is a shelf full of figurines and such. Shuffle next to my bed between it and the wall and you will find my garbage bin and a nightstand made out of a wire shelf. It contains my Garfield comics, my sketch books, my lamp, and my alarm clock.

 

And there you have my room.

it may sound strange but...very nice corner desk.  The paintings and the figures are very nice too.  It's so cool to see what you play too www

Fallout, Morrowind, Left For Dead, War Craft...I'm not sure of the rest because I'm not a huge PC gamer

 Not sure what I can say. I like Archie comics. I've been collecting since I was roughly 5 years old.

So here are a couple shots of the desk I sit at while I torment you.

MOTUC Man-E-Faces doing the, "ACTING!" pose. Marvel Legends Sentinel with Days of Future Past Wolverine on top. Masterpiece Soundwave. Japanese version in robot mode, US in tape player mode. Hardhead with a third party comic style head. Springer, Hot Spot, Grappel, and Masterpiece Red Alert.

I'm a fan of Jabba the Hutt stuff. It's my favorite scene out of all the movies. Sideshow Collectables Bib Fortuna and Leia. Pete Venkman. Han in carbonite from a Target exclusive deal a few years back. Jabba Christmas tree ornament. Lego Jabba's palace, which I got cheeeeap! RSVP card I did for Pendy's wedding. Gentle Giant Jabba sculpture. I gave him a Jughead crown (that originally came with Masterpiece Grimlock). Deadpool is there because something is wrong with me. SF Figurarts Vegeta that I've had since July, but haven't come up with a good pose yet. A Dundee, two Dwight heads that were DVD bonuses, and my 3PO hard drive that goes to and fro to printers.

Is Deadpool intentionally playing the role of Princess Leia in that last picture?

"Are you getting enough oxygen?"

 

That Space Ghost figure is a real let down. It's the new one from the Hannah-Barbara line. It has excellent articulation everywhere but the arms. He has no bicep and wrist swivel. The way the hands are positioned, it's obvious it was planned, but somehow nixed. I would've gone without Blip if it meant saving the articulation. You're better off with sticking to the one from 99/2000 that comes with the desk. It's still great and on another shelf. Shame Zorak, Moltar, and Brak weren't as good.

Yes. I've also got a slave Leia standee wearing a grass skirt, Elvis mask, fake beard, and an afro wig.

I'm just disappointed there's nothing related to Ron Swanson in there.

There's not much in the way of Ron Swanson merchandise. I've got a gigantic PDF of the Pyramid of Greatness. It's the actual file the show used. Need to get that printed up soon! If they put that tiki mask for sale, I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

 

Here's one of my many art book shelves. From left to right...

 

9IiMZ7A.jpg

 

Shadowline:  The Art of Iain McCaig - Iain McCaig is my favorite artist. He's best known as a concept artist on the Star Wars prequels, but he's worked on a ton of other stuff. Meeting him changed my life.

Star Wars Art Books - All three prequels and Empire. Even if you don't like the prequels, check out the art books. When you see all the stuff that was meant to be in them, you really do appreciate what they tried to do.

Star Wars: The Magic of Myth - Art book from the costume, prop, and concept art museum tour.

The Wildlife of Star Wars - This is a fun book by Terryl Whitlatch who designed a good chunk of all the creatures you see in the movies. Think this is still in print as a softcover.

Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Art book for season 1. Shame they didn't do any more for 2-5.

The Star Wars Vault - Neat book collecting a little bit of all the different merchandise and promotions.

Hyrule Historia - You know what this is.

Art of Avatar: The Last Airbender - Great book. Love the original designs and it's a shame they didn't stay that way.

Legend of Korra Season 1 Art Book - Another great book from the show.

Art of Bone - A must own for any Jeff Smith fan. One of my favorites.

Bone and Beyond - This was the companion book for Jeff Smith's Ohio State show in 2008. Good, but I can take it or leave it. Before Bone is on the shelf below.

The Art of Final Fantasy IX - The legendary BradyGames book I picked up when new.

Akira Toriyama: The World softcover - Goes without saying.

Akira Toriyama Exhibition (First Printing) - A crown jewel in my collection. This was sold at the gallery and contains a few pages they wide release doesn't, mainly DQ pages.

Some of the Dragon Ball companion books released in 96/97. I've got he Japanese softcover of the first book and the US hardcover.

One Piece Color Walk 1 - Really need to hurry up and get the second one!

Ranma 1/2 art book - Released shortly after the series ended.

Art of Breath of Fire IV - Slightly water damaged and snagged super cheap. Love it, even though I never played the game.

Couple Disney art of books - Treasure Planet (good) The Incredibles (let down, mostly collage work) Up (great) Wreck It Ralph (also great)

The Art of Monsters vs. Aliens - Fantastic book. Picked it up before I even saw the movie. Decided to check out my favorite artist in the book. Turns out he does nothing but demon porn.

The Art and Making of Paranorman - Another great book I snagged even though I haven't seen it yet. Well, only the first ten minutes, but I will!

Totally Mad - A wonderful collection of the history of Mad Magazine.

Tiki Modern - A fantastic look back at all the tiki inspired design from the 60s and 70s.

Tiki Style - The prior book's precursor. An excellent look at all the Hawiian design and architecture from the 30s-70s. LOVE this book!

The Art of Todd McFarlane - Todd may be kinda a dick, but this is probably the most comprehensive and honest "art of" book I've ever seen. You get everything, and I mean everything! His earliest work from ball point pen sketches, submission letters, unfinished pages, original boards, practically everything he's done, good, bad, and ugly is in this book.

The Art of Pirates of the Caribbean - Tons of great concept art from all three movies in a slick package.
