So I am finally adding some of my pics. Nothing to crazy yet. But here are some of the figures I have found over the last month.

I like that Yoda better than the bugged eyed Clone Wars one.

DJ - There are some amazing figures in your collection there. I love the Jedi Wave. You'll have to send me some photos so we can have them posted on the main site.

Good to see you back online again.

Cool

Thanks guys! I think my wife is just about ready to burst if I come home with another one! LOL Actually for the most part she is pretty cool with it.

I have generally been passing on the "repack" waves. Those three or four figures they throw in with a new wave to balance things out. I don't really know why they do that. I guess seeing how they are ending the "Saga Legends" Line, they are now using Legacy to work some of those figures in.

I'm constantly on the lookout, so hopefully soon I can find the last wave.

IF for some reason, ANYONE out there has or can get the right arm for the HK-47 buid a driod, PLEASE let me know. I wanted to get another concept Anakin figure, but ebay has them going for at least 30 bucks.

I guess I'll ask around for the part first, then try to get a loose figure. Good thing I didn't open the one I have!

So when a wave comes out, do you get every single figure in it?

It really depends on the situation. for the most part, I do try to get one of each NEW figure in a wave. If there are a bunch of repaints or repacks, then I usually skip those. I also have been putting the Build a Droids together as well.

Back a few years ago, I was a big "gotta get TWO" so I had one to open and one to keep carded. Over the last couple years, I began to understand that only a select few figures ever really become super valuable, and have just been getting one of each and opening them.

I do still try to grab two of something cool, like the latest round of concept figures. Store exclusive figures are also something I may get two of. So far I STILL need another Concept Anakin. I'm really glad I didn't open the one I have yet!!

Hey I was just thinking, now that you've moved to a new place will you have room to put out your collection? I want to see more pics!

I have plans to finish the upstairs of the house, and make it a guest room slash Star Wars showroom. It will take a little time to get it done, but you guys will be the first to see!

I feel so bad that you guys don't have your stuff out where you can always see it.

I want that shuttle, DJ! I've always loved that ship but never had one.

That's cool to see the difference in the Falcon sizes.

I saw the Tie Fighters at Target for $20 today too but passed it up. I don't know what I was thinking! Actually I've dropped about a hundred bucks on Star Wars stuff just since Christmas so I was holding back. Saw the Evo Pilot packs at TRU for $11 and passed. Then went back a couple hours later and some jerk bought all seven of them plus all the Matchstick figures. That's what I get for letting my wife scalp super squad figures all winter!

Great photos DJ - I owe you a huge thank you for your generosity. Totally shocked!

I have been on messenger looking out - so I can say thanks in person.

Cool

I set up SOME of my vintage figures in my display case tonight. If I get more stands, I can re-arrange them and probably get the rest of what I own in there.

Then again, I may pack them back up and every few days change up the case, as a way to display items untill my room is ready.






Here are pics of each teir if anyone wants to see them.

Thanks, Df. That is the case my wife got me from Goodwill. It came in with the donations, so knowing they really don't sell that typpe of thing, I got it for a really really good price... something like a little under 5 bucks. I had to paint the shelves, what is now silver was red. I would LOVE to find some sort of oval shape STAR WARS sticker to put on the front and cover that blank oval panel on the front.

A few more pictures.









This last one is a Toys R Us display that my Dad got for me back when he worked there. It even made the Star Wars 1000 collectibles book by Steve Sansweet! Pg. 139. In the book, you will see the ship faces to the right, yet my display faces to the left. Guess they used both halves of the ship when they made them.
