Here's a call to all my fellow Star Wars geeks!!

Take some pics of your SW collection and post them here! I'm curious to know just HOW MUCH you guys have!

I'm at work right now, but when I get home I'll take some pics and put them up so you can see my stuff as well.

Be it opened or on the card, bare it all!! Also, if you have made an accurate list of your critters, let's see it! (No buffing 'em up, guys :) )

Um, if I had a camera I would. Be a bit hard to get a twelve foot by eight foot by two foot deep shelving unit onto the scanner.....

I only ever list what I want not what I have. I think - LOTS - would best describe my collection right now. If I manage to blag the camera from my sister I'll attempt to take some snapshots to post but I don't hold out much hope. It's a very expensive camera and she's not very trusting. God I wish those camera things were cheaper over here. Way out of my price league. And ordinary cameras are poo as it takes so long to get films developed, whine whine whine whinge whine............. ;)

under costumizing there is a thread called "your collection" or someting like that
that's where I showed some pics of mine and under the thread "who here makes his own dioramas"

JangoFart

I checked out the pics, 187-Maul. Pretty sweet. I especially like the cantina scene.

I am going to post some of my pics as soon as I get home from work. The stuff that I'll post is just what's in my home-office which, due to the small-ish size of the room, only holds about 1/4 to 1/3 of my stuff.

I'll also post an Excel workbook that I've put together of my unopened critters. It's still a work in progress regarding my grading them, but I'll post it as-is anyway.

Be sure to check it out at around 7:00pm central!

Here goes some pics from my home-office. Like I said, this stuff comprises about 1/4 to 1/3 of my goodies. As if you can't tell, my digital camera is genuine k-rap. But, enjoy nonetheless.

KEWL, what pro case did you use for the Masters of the Darkside 2-pk? I need one for mine.

Also, did you use the Matchbox cases for your mini figs?

JangoFart
06-27-2002, 07:36 PM
Ok, I'd be here all day, so I zipped a couple per zip file to keep under the byte-size limit. Here goes #1:

OK, Sith_Killer:

Yes, the mini-figs are in HotWheels/Matchbox cases. They are made by www.jakestoychest.com - way better than the Protech ones. Neither fit the figures EXACTLY, but the ones by Jake's hold more of the card. (The HW/MB cases are a TAD too big.)

The Masters of the Dark Side 2-pack is in a Starting Line Up (SLU) case by Jake's. This case fits all of the POTF, POTJ, EP1 and Saga 2-packs EXCEPT: POTF Leia's; POTJ Luke/Bacta and Leia/Cannon; EP1 Electronic Accessory Sets (Gungan cannon and some other thingie); or Saga Nexu. These cases are, again, FAR SUPERIOR to any case made by Protech.

Each of my POTF, POTJ, and EP1 figures are in Star Wars Protectors made, again, by Jake's. They are more sturdy and hold a greater portion of the card than the Protech Star Cases and don't have that flimsy triangle-shaped hook thingie at the top of them.

However, they do not hold any of the Saga figures or either EP1 Destroyer Droids. For those, you'll need the Protech Star Case 2's. I have bought mine from: http://www.stores.ebay.com/id=328759
John is the dude. He's a great guy who sells at great prices! Check him out.

For the 2-packs that are not held by Jake's SLU cases, you need the Star Case SLU 2 or SLU 3's. They are a BIT too big, height-wise, but other than that work great.

Jake tells me that he's in the process of making his great Protectors big enough for the Saga figures. I'd either get a handful of the Star Case 2's to hold you over until then, or just wait for him to get his newer Protectors done.

I have a great relationship with Jake of Jake's Toychest and I can POSSIBLY get some samples of his cases sent to a select few of you guys - you paying shipping and handling, of course. If I get enough requests, I'll take those requests to him. Not to harp on it too much, but his cases are soooo much better than Star Cases. If you try one, you'll see why I say that.

Hope everyone enjoys!!

Thanks, Jeff!

I was HOPING that some of these other collectors who say they have so much stuff would share it with us. I like seeing other's collections.

Perhaps they will. Here's hoping!

Well, for the heck of it, I will post my collection again. It may be better arranged than before, and I have added new stuff. Still learning to use the camera though.

Very nice setup, Dong! You do need a house, though, so you will have more room to spread out! But, of course, the more room you have, the more crap you'll buy to fill it. And then you are in the same position as when you started :)

our collection takes up most of my dads room (where i'm at right now.) and all of my room. we are currently packing up all the POTF2 back. we have only the saga stuff and the classic POTJ stuff up right now with the exception of a few deluxes (han, luke, stromtrooper, boba fett, hoth rebel solider, snowtrooper...etc) but as off now, the SAGA and the pre-mentioned POTJ are hanging on my walls of my room. and shelves.

well, just usually, people want to see how your collection is displayed, not necessarily a close-up of figures they have already seen or have. Just my thoughts though.

cool collection
isn't it boring if you but the new figs and have to put the old away in boxes where you never see them?

and jdmarlow, isn't it even more useless if you buy the new figs and put them away right away? or will you have more space soon and is it only momentarily staying that way?

hango fett
07-15-2002, 09:41 AM
our house is too small to put everything up. we only have 2 rooms in which to put them.....the room i'm at right now (computer room) or my room and my room is pretty much taken up....me and my dad joke about if we won the loterry we would make a room strickly for star wars.

I should let everybody know that when I reconstructed my room in Feb 2002 - I put into the closet 75% of the collection. Here is the last pic of the figure wall. This wall is approx. 1/6 of my total fig collection. Makes me knees buckle.....

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:10 PM
Okay, I've been wanting to do this for a long time, and I finally decided to give a little taste of the displays I'm doing (they're not yet complete, I'm still messing around with some stuff), and I apologize for quality of the images (my camera is supposed to be good, but sometimes, it isn't).
I have a few pictures I'll be posting, and I'll try to explain what can't be seen in the pics.

This first picture is of my favorite display going right now, the Endor Battle. I used to have an AT-ST up with it, but the legs somehow got warped (I know it's shotty material, but it was holding fine and then something else happened to it), so that's out. I think the bunker looks fine, but I'll have to rearrange some of the other characters I have around.
Enjoy.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:11 PM
This is picture two of the Endor Battle, giving a close up of the bunker, and showing R2 with his electro effect (I hope everyone can see it okay).

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:13 PM
Here's what's on top of my cable box: a group of Clonetroopers. This has been changed around a lot, and it will probably be disbanded once I get some Gunships.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:15 PM
Here's something else that's on top of my television, on the left-hand side of the cable box. It's a small group of the Jedi, being, er, somewhat surrounded by droids (I need to buy some more). I'll definitely be redoing this one when the Arena playset comes out.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:16 PM
And on the right side of the cable box are two arena beasts, the Reek and the Nexu. Of course, I'll do more once I get the Acklay and get some more room.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:18 PM
And next to the television, on a little stand, is my working for a Gungan Sacred Place. I still need some other characters, and I need to make it look like a jungle, but this is a pretty good start, I think.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:19 PM
On top of my right stereo speaker, I have Chancellor Palpatine and his ground (I need the other characters, so Hasbro better hurry with those :D).

End...

Chiesa
07-19-2002, 03:20 PM
I think the sacred place is a nifty cool idea!

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:20 PM
On the left, I have Jango and Obi-Wan dueling it out. I think I should add a blast effect to Obi's saber, but I don't know if the blade is thick enough.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:23 PM
In the middle of the stereo sits my slightly re-done EW Vader about to throw Palpatine over the edge. What I changed was the cape. I took the Bespin Vader's "flappy" cape, put it on him, and gave EW Vader's to Bespin. Overall, I think it looks better. I have a picture showing the back, which I'll post right after this one.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:24 PM
Here's the back, as I promised...

End....

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:26 PM
On a little "dry sink", in my room, I have the top shelf (and the bottom too, but I didn't picture those) full of stuff. Starting on the left, we have the line of Bounty Hunters with Darth Vader standing before them.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:27 PM
Next to the Bounty Hunters is the Bespin Duel. It's not much now, but I will put these two someplace, when I get the room to do so.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:29 PM
And right next to the duel, we have a little mini-scene of right before the end of Alderaan.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:30 PM
Okay, almost done. On my computer desk, I have my Carbon Freezing display. In this picture, you can't see the Leia or the other Ugnaught, but they're there. I'll try to get a better picture.

End...

Lman316
07-19-2002, 03:32 PM
Last one. This one, I'm really proud of (it's still not done, but I like it), is of Jabba's Palace, and this sits next to the Carbon Freezing scene.

I do have more stuff to picture, but they really aren't ready, or I need to dust them. But I figured this was a pretty good showing of what I've got and how I display my figures. I hope everyone enjoys them.

End...:D
