And now let’s hear from Rey …

I just recently set up my studio a few months before SDCC 2010 because we just moved into a new place.

My primary bookshelf is a collection of models, figures, comics and invariably…dust.

I have finally begun construction on a few Gundams now that I have the space to do so.

Other shelves feature action figures from other robot series. This is EVA-01.

I have also started displaying certain collectibles like the Red Hood figure from the special Blu-Ray edition of Batman: Under the Red Hood and my SDCC 2010 exclusive Funko Force 2.0 Glow-in-the-Dark Green Lantern (whew!).

You’ll eventually see that I am primarily a DC guy, so most of these are recent issues of various DC titles. I still have 12 or so Drawer Boxes that I have to move from Las Vegas. Where to put them? I have no idea…

To the left of my shelves, is a glass display case the only denizen of which is Kei Acedera’s Assassin.

Above looms the many Gundams and such I have yet to build.

To the right of my shelves is my non-winning entry into SDCC 2010′s Masquerade. I set out to create a One Year Later Robin suit in the vein of Batman’s suit from The Dark Knight film. Too bad it wasn’t flashy enough to win.

On my work desk is a framed sheet of DC Superheroes stamps that I just had to get.

On my walls, I feature some framed art. This one is my only piece of original art, so far. I love Freddie Williams’ art. This piece of Robin in the thick of it with the 12 Angry Men just blew me away so I had to get it. On the back is his autograph with a quick commission of Tim Drake as Red Robin. And yes, this is acid-free mat and UV glass. ^_^

These next two photos are signed prints by Stanley Lau aka Artgerm. I just love how he paints his women!

And that’s my studio/hobby room. It’s a bit sparse right now, but I hope to fill it with more yummy, yummy things in the years to come! Thanks for visiting.

Photos need to be lightened up. Too dark to see any smaller details.

nice set up, no clutter.

Single spaces for each model and with a light for each space? That is classy, indeed.

That Robin costume rules. It’s absolutely perfect in that room, too. Kudos.

That Robin costume is SWEEEEEET.

Wow. Amazing, THis is how I want my room setup to be like. Just wondering where you got all of your hanging wall shelves with the gundams on and the bookcases. LOVE IT!!!

A great Robin costume and a really nice room. Well done.

My guess on the bookcases is IKEA (look up Expedit). They also have very affordable flat files (look up ALEX). An added bonus whether you’re a freelancer or collect original art.

The lighting on the bookcase is great.

that robin costume is amazing. if you ever thought about getting rid of it send me a message. lol
