Not having a shelf dedicated to my Irwin/Jakks figures has been bugging me for a while now. So, I decided to make an attempt at putting together a mid-school display.
However, there's always been a few little things that continually lead me to postpone work on the display. The most obvious of my concerns being, the collection is still light-years away from being completed. This is only made worse by the fact I'm still lacking a few choice characters from the mix. For instance, where the HFIL did all my Goku figures disappear to!? I swear I had all of the Irwin releases.
Mostly, I was just worried that my collection would feel somewhat sparse and eclectic.
Another thing. Usually, I prefer not to display anything but mint figures in my collection. Considering most of these little guys are my childhood pals - you can imagine the horrific ordeals they were subjected to, at the hands of a young SonKakarot. Many have suffered significant visible wear and some are even held together with glue! This is in stark contrast with my more recent acquisitions, which are all dead-mint.
Which prompts me to ask this question, how much thought/consideration and care goes into crafting your own displays?
Without further adieu, here is my latest addition to my collection. Please be kind. This is still very much a WIP.

Figures I definitely need to replace are Bulma, Raditz, Nappa, Trunks, armoured Trunks and Garlic jr. I'm also super pissed that I lost Vegeta's scouter! I swear I had hidden it somewhere for safekeeping...
Figures I'm planning on adding to the collection are, Jakks battle damaged Saiyan saga Goku, Jakks Namek saga Goku blue-shirt, Jakks Frieza saga battle damaged SS Goku, Irwin Saiyaman, Jakks Pikkon, Jakks Super Buu, Jakks Kid Buu, Jakks special paint Perfect Cell, Irwin Piccolo, Irwin Krillin, Jakks screaming SS3 Goku, Jakks SS 3 Gotenks.

Well, I finally found two of my missing Goku figures the other day, and it looks like isolation had treated them very well indeed - they were like brand new! And so they were inserted appropriately into the collection. Although I'm still a bit miffed that my yellow haired SS Goku still evades my clutches. It would seem he has been disposed of over the years. I just noticed that there are a few choice figures missing from my collection... not one Piccolo! There's also a few figures I'd like to replace, seeing as they aren't in the very best of shape and it irks my OCD to no end...
