      Flame of Udûn
      The Flamies 2018

      Collection of the Year


      Some collections are impressive because of their size, some are impressive because of the way they're displayed. And every once in a while you come across a gem of a collection, both impressive in size and very carefully and thoughtfully displayed. This year's winning collection is one of those gems. The past couple of months you could witness the birth and evolution of his Rings Room. Even the first photos of his empty display room managed to get lots of wows from fellow members. As the room came along, his love for oldschool polystone became ever more apparent. A full collection of medallions hangs proudly above his 126" homecinema screen, flanked by wizard staves. Posters and art prints were meticulously hung on the walls. This rooms breathes Lord of the Rings.

      It is a great honour to present the Flamie for Collection of the Year 2018 to a longtime member of this forum (and its predecessor).
      Max, you old fart! Come and claim your award!

          Yeah to the OD of the Right Honourable OFC


          Many a time I have looked over Max''s HP stuff until finally deciding I needed some Magic in my collection. Had to brace myself before looking though as the Oldduffer is the infamous 'Burner of the Boxes' and the memory of his Art box pyre photo still haunts me to this day !

                  WOOHOO!!!!

                  Congrats to ghettodactyl. Super glad you joined us here on the forum. Congrats to the runners-up, you all make it a better place!

                  Min, what can I say, this was going to nobody else but you my dear friend. Like others, have more eloquently said before me, you are the heart and souls of the forum and I couldn't ever imagine this place without you.

                  Dave my man, totally deserved. There were a few votes I already knew without thinking and this was one of them. Thanks for all the laughs in the past.

                  Duff, looks like my vote pushed you over the top, sorry Eti. Man, I just love what you created. Everything about it is AWESOME!


                  Sorry Dave, this is for all the new members. They all have to know who they are dealing with. Oh the humanity!

                      Congratulation oldduffer on a massive win in what was a particulary tough competition this yeah.

                      Well done Dave Mac for the comedy reward (you appear to be set for life there unless Conan or Fluffy start collecting poly).

                      Some lovely looking people along with wonderfully disturbing stuff on the red carpet ???????

                        Ithildin, you are the last person I expected to see post this picture. I had very much thought about posting it, and decided to save you the 'horror of it all'. It is about time the Rookies got initiated into the way Oldduffer's mind 'works' and what not to do with one's boxes if at all possible.

                              Weta collectible of the year: Licenses outside of Middle-earth


                              We all know and love Weta for their Middle-earth collectibles. Much to our dismay, as we fear that with Weta delving into other lines, our beloved Middle-earth collectibles will become fewer and farther between, and our wallets delight, Weta does create collectibles for other lines. Weta had shown us various non-Middle-earth collectibles in 2018, some of which have been up for preorder, and some of those have already sold out, long before they are to be delivered. Very few non-Middle-earth collectibles were actually shipped during the 2018 year, none of which were polystone based.
                              I present to you this years Licenses outside of Middle-earth winner:


                              Tomb Raider: Necklace of Lara Croft replica

                                I would have totally guess one of the POTA epics would have won but that necklace is beautiful.

                                    We are talking about Ithildin Min. To say he gets excited to show something or react to a new reveal is like saying Gandalfs fireworks just go 'PoP'

                                        But isn't that why we 'love' him and his posts so much?



                                        Dave Mac , you need to keep posting like you are if you plan on toppling the entire top 10 poster's list and become #1 on it.
                                        Congratulations on reaching 2000 posts.
