They are from various online retailers here is a few to get you started, they're so addictive. eBay is probably your best bet for the much older figures. Although don't be sucked in by some high prices.

Well not really tech related but bit of a change to the outside of the house.

I got my sparky to install some downlights in the soffit of the house. Really pleased with the outcome and can't wait to drive home at night and see it all lit up.

The lights are attached to a dusk sensor which switches the lights on at dark then switches them off after x amount of time.

Here is some pics.

Nice! That's some god-tier lighting.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Thank Ned, we're currently in talks with the sparky on how we could possibly do the top gable.

The small roof makes getting access to the top very hard and puts the ladders on quite a severe angle.

I thought your setup look great but Iron Man eclipses that!
Just been on one of the sites you linked and ordered a Delorean 1/6 model..... at least i have 18 months to explain it to SWMBO!

Haha getting approval from SWMBO is the hardest part about all these.

I originally got approval for 2 on the TV Unit. Wanted more and tried to get approval for the dedicated cabinet but she just wouldn't until one day she cracked.

I was down ikea and had the unit in the car within 30 mins of her saying yes.

Nice pick with the delorian, it will sell out no doubt. Marty McFly went in about 1 day.

I'm quite lucky with SWMBO to be fair, one day she did crack and allow the 'geek rack' in the living room, which has now expanded into 6 shelves with Lego Millennium Falcon, few car diecasts, LOTR statues, lightsaber and some models from game collectors editions, plenty more to add to it and she found some Lego UCS stuff in the spare room the other day!

Need some more units i think!
