Riley Says No

The table is finished.  It looks ok and its functional.  The only thing missing is a chair.  I made the table for a 28" height.  Your basic desk height.  I have a nice leather chair and ottoman that I sit in.  Its not made for computer desk use, but it works well and is comfortable.  The old computer chair (a basic adjustable height, swivel desk chair) gets used as a foot stool.  When I am allowed to use it that is.

Its also Riley's chair.  Its where he sits when I am on the computer.  When I finished the tabletop for the room I pulled this chair in to check how everything worked.  And it worked as I had hoped it would.  So I left the chair in my room.  The next day, I am on the computer and Riley comes to sit with me.  Except the chair is gone.  He sat where the chair was and stared at me.  I picked him up and put him on my lap.  A few minutes later he left.  The following day, Im checking emails and he comes in and goes to where the chair used to be and sits his butt down and stares at me.  I look at him.  I remember saying," You have got to be kidding."   But he wasnt.  I got up and went and got the chair.  He hadnt moved.  As soon as he saw me bring it back, he moved enough for me to set it down and hopped right into it seconds later. 

So, I cant believe Im saying this...I still need a chair for my room because my dog wont let me use the one I have.

On the room front...I have bought a set of Transformer Curtains.  I had also bought a TF Valance for it on line, but they apparently werent the same and didnt match. These curtains are too long and will need to be hemmed up, so I will use the extra material to make a valance.  I will have the curtains in a couple of weeks. 

Im hoping to pick up another wall shelf this coming weekend.  Then I can organize the rest of my magnos and bring the remaining ones out of the closet.  Then I'll know how much wall space I have for artwork.

Then all I will need is a chair.

Custom Magnos All Done Except...

Well I made some new pewssurized Magno heads to replace the first set.  I sold those a few months back, but never got around to replacing the heads I needed.  The unpressurized Magno Heads I made were actually pretty good.  But I want it as close to crystal clear as I can get it.  So I finally finished off the Red Clear with Black set of four Magnos. 

The Red Clear with White set of four Magnos. 

The All CLear with Black Set of Four Magnos ...

and the All Clear with Red Set of four Magnos.   I need 3 white Force Commander adapters to finish off the WHite with Black Set of Four Magnos.  The White with Red Set of Four Magnos is complete.  The Blue Chrome Set of Four Magnos is completed. 

The Magnos I have yet to finish are the Purple Chrome Emperor and The Copper Chrome Emperor.  Also, thinking I wasnt going to get the Copper Chromed Magnos done at all, I wasnt prepared.  I didnt have the Magno figures to do it.  So I used my Shadow Magnos for Copper Chroming.  So I need 4 Baron Karza's to turn into a Set of Four Shadow (All Black) Magno's.

 I also need 4 Baron Karza's to make the Black with Red Set of Four Magnos.  So thats whats on the Magno front.  All I need now is a weekend to finish my Magno Leg. Its a bit more custom friendly.  :~)

Now that I have my table made, I can get another shelf like the one I already have for the other Magno Figures.  The Red Falcons, The Knock Offs, The Palisades Prototypes, The Fantanauti and the JEAG's and the few other Custom Magnos I have.  I'll get the rest of the Magnos'd I have in here so they are all in one place.

Sept 18/14 EDIT
  Officially I have completed the chromed magno figures I set out to have chromed with the exception of a similar colored steed.  The Purple Chrome and Copper Chrome magno figures were assembled and finished yesterday.  All production color schemes were made for each "set" of magno's as well as black and white.  The All Black Magno Figures are not being made.  I have completed my Magno Collection with the exception of a few more customs here and there.

They can be found under the right side Label "Chromed Magno's"
