Posting this as a bit of an update of my MOC room. Panel 1:
This is what I ended up doing with my New York Comic Con exclusive masks. I ended up finding a shadow box that was like exactly the the height of the packages and wide enough to have three with a bit of a margin so I got a third one and did this. They sit between the shelves that hold Matteo and the other plague doctors, and the one that has Saxum and Bionerdly on them. You can see Matteo-nette's feet in the top of the photo. Panel 2:
This is what happens when you have a job that supplies plenty of money for buying lego sets and not nearly enough time to disassemble and MOC with them.
Like 95% of that is Lego sets or parts to them. There's a few pieces in there that aren't. In that orgy of lego is all my Bionicle 2015
sets, the Ninjago Nindroid mech Dragon
(which I've affectionately renamed "Winged-Robot-Ninja-Dachshund"), All of the series 4 Mixels
, then Ultra Agents Hurricane Heist
and Toxikita's Toxic Meltdown
....And I think that's all of it. I don't even fucking know, that's how bad it is. Panel 3:
This is sort of the main reason I'm posting this. I wanted to show that I got this new
new light box and it effectively fits my currently biggest MOC, Ryakk in it with plenty of room. However, it creates two additional problems: It takes up nearly all the extra space in my MOC room, so I'd never be able to leave it up for convenience, and 2, It will require better lighting than what I've got, which means getting lights on stands, which I don't have the room for. As it was I was in the very corner of the room just to take this pic. So I'm going to have to consider different options.
I unfortunately missed the date to sent this back to Amazon and so I'm stuck with it. I'm considering different options and might be going with backdrop on rollers and softboxes for lighting. If anyone's at all remotely interested in buying this from me for their own huge ass MOCs, I'd be up for selling it cheaper than I paid for it. If someone does want it and I can make back some of the money I paid to get it, this will definitely persuade me to go with the other option. But if not, I might just keep it and see if I can find a use for it. Or hell just fold it up, stick it in the closet, and forget about it.
It folds up pretty compactly, its just a huge(literally this thing is so massive) pain in the ass to put up and take down along with the folding table I got for it, every time I want to take photos, then go back to MOCing. With Muslin on rollers I can pull down different back drops easily and fold up the table when not in use.
Also, I got a new tripod
. Its nice.
Have a nice day, and thanks for reading.
