A little side interest definately. And i have also started to collect VME's. I guess it was due to the same reason as you - finding it more and more difficult to finew new peices for the main focus.

That is one amazing focus collection!! I don't even know where to start, I love it all.

The 7" Takaras are really cool. Limb molds, first shot,bootlegs,Don Post mask, and even some sort of sewing kit(?). I think you've covered every conceivable item with Chewie. That's not to mention all the MOC,proofs, etc....

What country did those bootlegs with the black beards come from? Those are crazy looking!

Outstanding job, Steve! Thanks for sharing!

The black bearded chewie's are mexican bootlegs. They really did have a good sense of humour when designing the figures.

@aussiejames - i have 2 more MOC's that should both be on there way to me in the next few days. As soon as they arrive i intend to remove all items from my cabinets and put it back in. I have an idea of how i want it but until i see it i really wont know.

So hopefully i should have the update sorted in 3 weeks or so.

Watch this space. Very Happy

Steve! After seeing your hint on the recent vintage purchases thread I thought I would pop over to see what else you have.

I am so glad I did... what a breathtaking display!

I'm really looking forward now in seeing what you won!!!

Craig,

thanks for the comments.

Not bad for 4 to 5 years of collecting!!!

Only a couple of weeks to wait for this "mystery" item. Although i will get the chance to limelight 2 more MOC's before that .

Cheers for the comments Jay.

This mystery item really will wow my fellow community members and i still cannot beleive that i have had the opportunity to buy these items (yes it is more than one) and i was very happy with the price. But i doubt i will be buying much more before July/August.
