Or have you gone so crazy so fast you have a massive collection in just a short time? This is the place for "Noobs" to show us what you've got! Impress us with how the collecting bug has bitten you, and maybe you will be the winner who sends the big boys running!

Hello,

I'm new here and this looks like the appropriate Thread to post a description of my Entry and myself.

My name is Doug. I am so excited that I found this contest and made it in time to enter (saw the advertisement on Yakface just 10 days before deadline!). I'm absolutely loving all the great displays from all the entries into the contest that I see here! It makes me feel so good to see that I'm not the only one who has taken Star Wars Collecting as serious as I have.

I am very humbly submitting my collection for both "Best Overall Collection" and "Best New Collection". Not trying to be greedy. It's just that by October 2013 my Star Wars Collection will officially be 1 year old and I will no longer be eligible for the "New Collection" category.

I entered into both Categories because everybody tells me my collection is gargantuan. Star Wars kind of took over my home! I was a "Transformers" and "NECA" 6-inch figures Collector until one fateful day in October 2012 when I walked into a "Five Below" store and saw TVC "Luke Skywalker Dagobah Landing". I just had no idea that the sculpting and articulation had gotten to that point on Star Wars figures. I was hooked from that moment forward. I think my goal in collecting is to eventually have every character and every scene in every Star Wars film represented in their best most definitive version of action figure form.

As a side note, I also repair and restore modern and vintage toys and will be posting a number of How-To videos soon. I taught myself electronics (on the internet!) so I could build Arcade Machines and also work competently with LEDs as you can see in my Entry photos. So, if anybody is interested I can post How-To Guides on those subjects as well. Some of them are already up on my Picasa Albums Page.

I also feel the need to mention that I am so grateful that fans like you take time to host contests like this! It kind of validates my hobby for me and for the people that think I'm a little nuts for having so much of this stuff in my house!

Thank you for considering my Star Wars Collection for this awesome contest and also for providing me with a look other peoples' impressive galleries!


Sincerely,

-Buried Egg

Hi all,I only heard about this competition a day before closing through a Star Wars fb page,pretty happy I managed to enter.
A bit about my collection.......my aim is to get a complete a loose set of figures,I only started my collection five months ago and I am only about ten figures shy of a full set,Ive pretty much left the last 17's till last as they seem to be the more expensive ones,but along the way I have somehow managed to collect an R2D2 collection which I am happy with as he is my favourite character.I think the best part about my collection is that I am in the UK and there doesn't seem to be an abundance of Star Wars as there is elsewhere in the world.
I'm loving seeing other people's collection,it's kind of inspiring and making me want to progress past what I was aiming for.,thank you for letting me showcase my collection,it's not as grand as some others but its mine :-)
I want to wish good luck to the other entrants,all your collections look fantastic,I hope to get there one day,maybe next year il have a better collection.

Buriedegg and Spidey, I really appreciate you two taking the time to introduce yourselves and talking about your collections.
That is something I was trying to make a part of the last few BCA's with very little intrest.
Always awesome to get to know members and entrants!
Thank you again for doing that.

Hi everyone!  It was a pleasure to be part of the award, I have already participated back in 2011.
I hope you enjoy my diorama collection. I have been building dioramas since 2002 and I´ve made a lot of them.
Thank you again and I am looking forward for the final results.
Bye!

Hi again,
Wish I had taken better pictures or had another day or two before I could submit seen as I have since added five more last 17 figures , a boxed tri logo b wing fighter and 5 carded figures.....I have a feeling my collection is going to grow at a considerable rate now.

I wish I could vote for more than one entry tho , there are so many good entries , not just in the new collection cat but also best overall.

I am now going to spend the best part of the day looking through the entire wattosjunkshop site and seeing whats what and how it all works. Looking like a impressive place to be part of and so far everyone seems nice and helpful.
