TOMD – Dalek

dalek

What geeks desk could be complete without a Dalek sitting next to the computer. Of course the Desk would be even more complete if it had a Cyberman and Sontaran standing with the Dalek. Those will be added someday, when I have a job again or when I win the lottery.

The three of them (dalek,cyberman and sontaran) hold a special place for my geek heart. When I first found Dr. Who as a young geek it was watching the Tom Baker Episodes Genesis of the Daleks,Sontarran Experiment and Revenge of the Cybermen. As much as I love the current run of Dr. Who these episodes will always be the best in my mind. The Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan taking on the galaxies worst to save the day.

Moving the Office…

It had to happen eventually. We are finally moving the office desk out of the living room and making it back into a living room and nothing else. So that means our office space needs a new home. So what are we to do???

Why, get rid of the dinning are off of the kitchen. We barely ever use it, and we both need more space for our work. So it is off to work that I go.

For my desk, I have deceided to convert a table into a workstation. Taking a simple snap together shelf system from Target I created a Hutch for the back of the desk. which then became the home for all my computer stuff and various nick-nacks.

I still have a lot of moving of stuff and getting settled in, but I already love it. I have much more room to work with now. Both at the desk and the counter space behind the desk. That is going to be very helpful with some of the projects I have coming up.

Of course, sadly I will not have as much room for nick-nacks in my new setup. A select few are going to be allowed to stay on the desk, but most of them are going down to the dungeon that is my studio space… so TOYS ON MY DESK might have to become TOYS IN MY STUDIO…

TOMD – Artist Donald

1368528060_67fb000c64

Yet another Donald Duck in my collection. This one was given to me by my wife for our anniversary last year. As you can see it shows the modern Donald painting a picture of his early self.

This piece was bought from the Disney Online store and has since sold out. This is probably my favorite item of all my items on my desk.

TOMD – Kit Fisto

kit

Yet another Background character from Star Wars. Although he does get more screen time then most, and a lot more in the various cartoons. Sadly like most of the Jedi Kit met an untimly end in Revenge of the Sith. So far I have three different versions of Kit Sitting on my desk. The Mini Galactic Hero version, One of the Action figures and The Kit Fisto bust.

TOMD – Superhero Squad Fantastic Four

mshsff

I have been in love with this line of toys since it started… (and all of it’s cousins GIJOE, Star Wars and Dr.Who)

Image wise the Fantastic Four have always been one of my favorites. Having said that I have to admit that I don’t think that I have read more then 20 of their comics in my whole Comic reading life…

You can expect to be seeing a whole lot more of these guys show up here. I have tons of these… Of course most of them are in the toy box and are played with by littleduck and I… but there are some that just live on the desk.

TOMD – Howard the Duck

dsc_0022Howard the Duck…

I know I could probably get in trouble for saying this, But I really liked the Howard the Duck movie. Which makes me one of maybe ten people who admit that… altough in secret I think that the number is much higher.

91eb_1I was also a big fan of the Steve Gerber comic as well. Howard was just plain cool, and well come on… He is a DUCK. So I thought it was really cool that they where releasing him as a figure in the Marvel Legends line. The problem was that he was going to be a pack in with the Silver Surfer and I just couldnt bring myself to pay that much for another Silver Surfer figure at Marvel Legends prices.

A while later a friend, Bills, who had bought one was getting ready to get rid of some stuff at a con and Howard was one of the items. So he was nice enough to let Howard come and live on my desk…

TOMD – Max Rebo

dsc_0017

Max Rebo is yet another fine example of how I love the background characters of the Star Wars movies. Max Rebo is one of the fine musicians that entertain Jabba in his palace.

How can you not love a neon blue elephant who plays the keyboards.

I have many versions of Max (including a photo signed by the puppeter.), but the one that gets a place on my desk is the bean bag version that they released in the height of all the beanie babie craze.
