Hi!

I guess you are here for the Action Figure Theater, right?

At the moment we do have Stargate and Torchwood and Doctor Who stories.

There is also the odd Stargate fanfiction in between.
If you are interested in my customizing skills, then just click on the word.

Hope you like it here! If you do, please leave feedback.
Have fun!

Here is a series of 7 pictures of my Alfred Pennyworth figure doing butler things: Cleaning, hoovering, raking leaves, chopping firewood, polishing the silver, keeping fit and doing repairwork. Click the cut to see them all! Enjoy!

(I got a retweet from Sean Pertwee who plays Alfred in "Gotham". I'm so happy he liked it!)

I just realized that I never finished posting my pictures from the Hub 7 Torchwood con back in 2011. The first time I met John Barrowman. And we flew to London only two weeks after we had been in Cardiff for the John Barrowman concert. No, I am not crazy, I am completely normal, why do you ask? LOL

Picture with John Barrowman - still one of my favorites

Story about how John Barrowman caught the thief in the hotel at 2 AM


But I also met Kai Owen there - actually for the second time, the first time had been a year before in Germany, picture here

And Joseph Lidster, who is not an actor but an author:

Actually also "Gwen's parents" (from "Miracle Day") were there but I forgot to go there when the time for the photo was and was not that much bothered about them.

Catching up with the new Doctor Who season (and even liking it, much to my own surprise) I found a very familiar place in the second episode! Back in 2011, John Barrowman, his sister Carole and their husbands had made a France / Spain road trip, and they also had visited City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia. I already loved the place then, and do now even more after seeing so much of it in this episode. This is the kind of modern architecture I love. Not the simple plain cube one without anything special.

Please find many more pictures under the cut. Anything that hasn't John or Carole in it, is a screenshot.

At the market I found a stall with miniature glass bottles. I thought McCoy may enjoy these ;)

More crafty things here

It was my grandmother's funeral today. While cleaning out her apartment, I found lots of things that I had made for her as a child. Some amazing things there. If you click the LJ cut then I'll give explanations for each item.

Especially for [livejournal.com profile] owensheart!

I never watched "Buffy" or "Angel" but I keep buying their figures as they are so much fun! Here we have "Ice Cream Xander". He comes with an ice cream cone, a scoop, a plate of cheese - and a single heart! (which I already used in the Ed in lab scene)
I also got this Muppets popcorn stand. It may come in handy on a fair or maybe the Gotham circus (if we ever get a Jerome figure)

I was busy today - can anyone already see what this will become? ;)
I started out with glueing and nailing several pieces of styrofoam together to get a base. Then I coated it with cardboard as that will be easier to paint. Styrofoam will melt if spray painted with the wrong paint (that is not acid-free). So be careful if you want to attempt that too!

Throwback Thursday: Some figures from my childhood in East Germany. The mechanic and fireman are similar to Playmobil, having hands that can grab accessories.

The others are just made from gum. A ship captain & a police man at the left, at the right a taylor (from the fairytale?) & a robber and the two guys in the middle are Moritz and Max from the Wilhelm Busch Max & Moritz comics. No idea if they are known outside of Germany: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_and_Moritz

With all those figures, I have no idea who the maker is, where are they from or if there are more, but I have known them all my childhood. I actually also had several of these mice, everyone called them Mickeymouse but at the time I had no idea why! That picture is from the net, not mine. No idea where mine are. I had white, yellow, brown and green.

As promised, the introduction post for Doctor "Bones" McCoy. He comes with moving tricorder, phaser, communicator and lots of hands like Kirk and Spock. But his best bit is the medical set! It connects to his pants via magnets. And all the items can be taken out.
And he even has the small ring! It is loose and can be put on any hand. And the Exclusive version even has the medical tunic.

Many more pictures under the cut!

Turns out I shared this picture everywhere but here. I'll do a proper introduction post yet for the Quantum Mechanix Bones / Doctor McCoy, but here is a little teaser. I'm so happy to have him! He comes with so many awesome things. A full working medical pouch! None of my figures will ever be sick again.

I made another good use of the lab table! Guess I should give Ed his proper green scrubs. Wonder how difficult it could be to customize this figure. I need another desk anyway.

The heart he is holding in his hand came with the "Ice-cream Xander" I recently bought. I need to introduce him to you yet.

The knife is borrowed from Teyla, Stargate Atlantis ;) The stool is something that came with a pizza once.
