Show Us Yours: Toys R Steve

This is the post where you get to show off your gaming setup and collection to the entire world. Let's take a look now!

The idea of Show Us Yours is you take some photos of your games collection or your gaming room or your gaming cupboard or whatever else you have in your house that is about you playing games. You then send us your photos along with a few comments about what makes yours so special. Then we publish it here on a Thursday afternoon.

Today it's the turn of regular commenter and reader reviewer extraordinaire, Steven Bogos.

Steve even helpfully supplied his own captions for each pic, saving me from going to all the trouble. (Click to enlarge each pic.)

"Influenced by the last 'show us yours', I figured I'd show off my gaming setup. It's not as extensive as others, as I relegate most of my older generation stuff to storage. What is impressive about my collection is the sheer amount of TOYS I've collected over the years, from special editions, as well as small purchases."

"First shot of my gaming room - this is where I spend most of my time... sitting at that chair. Most of the toys are on the top shelf, but there's a few scattered around, like the facehugger hanging off my monitor, and the Indiana Jones Lego planes on my desk - within easy reach so i can play with them during loading screens."

"Other shot showing my 'secondary' gaming devices, my beast of an 18-inch laptop, and the Wii which is hooked up to my computer monitor. It also contains the prize of my collection - a 1:1 scale replica of the pulse rifle from ALIEN."

"A close up of the rifle. There's a few more toys on top, my favourites are the Luffy/Goku crossover toys."

"My less-than impressive collection of current-gen games. I usually trade/sell most of the console games I stop playing. My Xbox isn't pictured because my brother 'borrowed' it a couple months ago..."

"My slightly more impressive PC game collection."

"The top shelf of my desk, containing all my toys, as well as special edition boxes and a Katana (because, everyone needs a Katana)."

Editor's Note: Steven did not supply a caption for this photo, so I will have to step in.

"The top shelf of Steven's desk, continued."

Editor's Note: Steven did not supply a caption for this photo either, so once again I will have to step in.

"The top shelf of Steven's desk, continued, continued."

Thank you, thank you very much.

"Bonus pic! My Manga collection"

Steve also is offering a bonus point for anyone who can guess who his favourite Disney character is. Well, can you?

Don't forget to show us yours!


    Donald Duck, Only Disney character i could make out.

    Oh, it's Lady Tremaine, right?

    lovin' the Viper figurine, man.

    Ok, now show us pictures of your girlfriend.

      Oh jeez I lol'd at that. Must be that time of the evening...

      Anyway, I am fluroescent green with envy of the 1:1 Alien pulse rifle - that thing is luh-vly.

      Nice work Steve :)

      Why do you only say things to hurt me, rpgplayer83. Rpgplayer's 1 through 82 are always so much nicer

      We should have a show us yours 'GIRLFRIEND edition'!
      I'll start:

      Nice collection anywho. Lots of figures everywhere!

      Oh come on, be nice. The guy's only 12. Who else would play with legos while the games load besides a 12 year old?

        I'm 21 and a proud AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO)!

        Ironically, some of these toys were bought for me by my ex-girlfriend

    It's the little mermaid ofc. Go team edward!

    jk. Save carmine! =w=

    David, your captions are mind-blowing. I would have never known I was looking at the same desk as before. I just assumed he had three identical samurai swords. Just a tip, they are perhaps too analytical. I just want to know what I’m looking at.

    is this Christian Weston Chandler's room?

    if I ever need to devise a way to repel women within a 5km radius, I would definitely draw inspiration from this

    Is that a Lego Thunderbolt on your desk, or do my eyes deceive me?

      Sorry, It's LEGO Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    is that soundwave infront of the DBZ character? Nice collection! Where on earth did you get the homestarrunner characters?!!

      You can get them from the Homestarrunner store:

    Soooo may toys.. i'm actually jealous!

    I must say, though, how brilliant are the wall mounted NERF guns?!?! hahah. Just slightly less impressive than the pulse rifle.

    mucho respecto chief-o

    I might have to send take some pics of my setup. It could get embarrising tho :P I need a gun rack...

      Nice collection! I also have the Vulcan (the machine gun), was drooling over the new sniper rifle when I saw it at Toys R Us the other day

    Loving the Strongbad figures!!!

    Also sweet Donald Duck Transformer too man - I nearly bought that & Mickey, but never found anywhere with it priced reasonably.

    That's one awesome (and big) Franky statue!

      Thanks! That's actually my latest addition, I picked it up as a bargain when I was in Hong Kong a couple months ago ($60 Hong Kong Dollars, which is about $15 Aus)

      It was marked down so much because he was missing his accessories (he's supposed to come with sunglasses and a bottle of cola), and also the stand he is on says 'Brook'

    Holy shiznit is that an original release Soundwave figure!??!?!

      Nope! It's the re-release that came out a few years ago, that actually functions as an MP3 player (you can stick an SD card in where his tape deck is)

    Nice collection... but you've taken them out of the boxes! They are no longer collectables!



    Loving the Homestar figurines, and the Death not Manga

    Anyone know of any good online stores to get replica swords in victoria?
    Like he said, everyone needs a katana!

      Just use ebay. I found some quality katanas on ebay at a moderate price.

      Also, the katanas are upside down, and the handles should point to the left unless you want to show aggression to whoever enters your room =p

        Thanks! I never knew this. Although... the Dragon pattern is only on one side of the blade, so i think i'll keep it this way and risk offending any hard-core japanese that happen to come into my room...

    Most of the stuff is pretty cool/retro, but the Samurai swords are a bit too otaku for me..
