I wish that I had a better spot to display things, but my basement mini-man-cave is very much still a work in progress at this point. (It's still 75% full of items we never unboxed, or had to stow when we moved into our house a couple years back.)
At any rate, after being inspired by bombarta's posts, I started putting in the time to slowly recover my lost relics, and also display some of my fairly-recent items.
Pop-up books! My treasured SW Pop-up book, and another old-school Disney pop-up book *that someone, who frequents the IRA, might like*:
Some of my other SW books/magazines from when I was youngster:
Some of my collectibles...still missing a bunch in storage. (Mostly newer items, because all of my original action figures are all gone - donated long ago to a family in need.)
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
