    I thnk 1/6 is taking over my house....

    feel free to move post if in wrong area

    No...i dont have that many figures yet...but...coincidentally, while reading the forums, working on my schoolwork, at least on what I have done for this assignment so far, the answers are exactly as written on my page-
    2. 2/5
    4. 1/6
    6. 2/9
    8. 1/6
    10. 1/4
    12. 1/6
    13. 1/48
    14. 1/6

    So far, at least every other one is 1/6 or some other scale i've built (1/48)

    There is no escape, it will only get worse, and your wallet will get lighter. If you really want to see how bad it gets, go to the "War Rooms" thread.

    You know you got it bad, when every where you go (Lowes, Wally-World, Target, work, the freakin' grocery store) my eyes are constantly scanning, looking for something that will fit in my 1/6 world, such as a prop, dio material, a back drop or a 1/6 accessessory....

    I find myself a regular, cruising the "Pink Aisle" looking for a score...
    I know what people are thinking... "why just look at that 6'4" perverted freakazoid eyeing the Barbie and Ken dolls"..."lets go honey and let the big man have his privacy" (woman grabbing her little girl's hand and walking away quickly)

    It's maddening I tell you...

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm better now....

    To avoid this problem I have temporarily driven them back to my den/war room. They seem to keep coming back though. Hmmmm.

    You know you're out of your mind when you are a 6'2", 255lb dude chatting at Joann with old ladies about fabrics and sewing techniques.

    Yeah, two months ago I had my guys confined in my War Room (built-in 2 car garage) and yet they manage to escape into the living room, kitchen, sun room even the kitchen! Sneaky little devils...

    Then I get questioned by the Master Interrogator (my Wife), "so...how did zees four Joes get on zee fireplace mantle?"..."I have ways of making you talk..."

    I know excatly what you guys mean. I get strange looks inside most stores. Imagine, a 6'1" fat guy, greying hair and coke-bottle glasses, looking at various sections (paint, woodwork, Fabric). It gets worse whenI go down the doll-making aisle for small brushes and thin cloth. I really look like a perv there.

    My wife told me to slow down. But at least now when we go out to Michaels, AC Moore etc I'm not bored. I got a good one she's supportive.
    But she did use the obcessed word for the first time...
    Hmmm...

    I was laughing at the same thing, mostly because I've done the same. Imagine your some normal shopper at Michaels or Joanns, and there's this 6'1" fat guy in combat boots and nazi camo talking to random women about fabric.

    Now there is a man who has it figured out. Find common ground to get off the hook, or at least get ripped a little less.

    Your blog is one awesome place to get legacy reviews, specially with the oldr hot toys.

    As for your house, what really gets my attention is how well integrated your shelves and displays are in relation to the rest of your house, unlike other warrooms and shelves, that look like an elephant in the room that everyone notices and no one wants to ask about.
    I used to be a collector, then I took a paycut to the knee.
