From the title, you may not know why this is blog post has been associated with the Silver Surfer Forum, but hopefully this first image will clear things up...

If you have read about me, you know that I am a HUGE Silver Surfer fan... this room, my home office is a tribute to that character... and Marvel. :)

Here are some more pics for a 360 view of my "Marvel Room"!

In case you were wondering about the original art behind the statue... (the Tim Proctor piece is new, I have moved the metal SS sign under the shelves at the left) :)

NOTE: The Sideshow Silver Surfer statue has been moved to my desk to save space on this shelf (this is directly under the life-size SS).

Holy goodness that is beautiful and amazing. And I'm not even a mega-Surfer fan. Kudos, you are certainly a member of the superfanclub.

Darn, the initial post did not include all the images...I have updated the post to include all the images (a bit more impressive - or overkill, depending how you look at it!) :)

@BlackArmor: Awesome. I do like the name you have suggested. :)

@Morpheus_: @TheOptimist: @Renchamp: @Omega Ray Jay: @BlackArmor: Thanks so much, it is so worth the effort I put into it!

@The Dark Huntress: As you can see, from the new images, I do have a couch in this very room. :)

@ssj2DeadPool: Yeah, it is pretty amazing. As soon as I saw it online, I knew I had to have it.

@War Killer: :)

My comic shop has the life size Surfer as well. They won't come off it. One day I'll have one. I once saw one for $800 but I had to drive to New Jersey (from Florida) to get it.....

My ex roommate bought me a large Silver Surfer poster which hangs over the head of my bed. Despite the years I've had it, not one scratch. I'm proud to be a Surfer fan, though I wish I had as much memorabilia as you. x_x

Please, please tell me you talk to Norrin in Galactus's voice and give him commands. Oh sweet potatoes thank you for being the colorful expressive and fun example of humanity you are. The world need's more people that push it's limits.

@ragdollpurps: @jloneblackheart: One of the comic stores in Austin has one, which reminded me of their existence. I was lucky enough to find one in San Antonio on ebay that I could get my hands on...

@ScarlettAssassin: @thechessclub: @ReVamp: @218Comics: @ARMIV2: @TheGoldenOne: Thanks, it is well worth the effort, as I spend 12+ hours working from this room. :)

@Dark Cloud™: @ntb1124: :)

@CATPANEXE: I am not sure I would publicly admit talking to him, *if* I do. ;)

@tensor: The walls just happened to be "Marvel friendly" before I started this project - I do like them red and blue - What I really need is a 100" screen on that wall with a video of movement through space. :)

Thanks to you all!

As a favor, could any of you comment on the image itself: http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/thanosrules/marvel-room-my-office/108-558819/marvelroom_0/105-2076206/ ? It would surely help me out with the Mona Lisa quest...

In return, I would be happy to help anyone else with their outstanding quests. :)

The best part is, I just got a bunch more books and statues, so it is already time for adjustments.

I will post updates when "Phase 2" is complete! :)

@kartron: @Hawkeye446: I created the following blog post a little while ago that lists (with pictures) the comics referenced on the walls. The images represent their current condition. :)

http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/thanosrules/ratty-old-silver-surfer-comic-collection/87-75409/

NOTE: What hangs from the wall are printed images that accurately represent the respective comics. I bagged/boarded them to give the look of actual comics, but I am keeping the originals away from unnecessary UV and fall hazards. :)

I hope to finish the update to my room this weekend... we shall see...
