So, I've finally quit being lazy, and decided to post pics of my collection.

I figured I'd start with some pics of my modern. I know it's not what this forum is about, but I figured it would let you all know where I'm coming from. Very Happy

It's actually an embroidered blanket that was given to Lucasfilm employees.

And the bracelet thingy you're seeing is part of a McDonald's toy display. The top half is Star Wars, and the bottom half is iCarly. I wish there was a way to separate the two, but there isn't.

And thanks, all for the compliments.

Very Happy

It's a "small vintage collection" to me, just because I just started it, and I can't quit finding cool stuff that I need! I want it all! Muahahahahahaha cheers

You've got a really nice setup there and your vintage section is by no means small. I like the Vader run.

Holy Shit!!

That is an amazing display mate! I don't care that it's modern, it looks the nuts.

Is that a Rubies Vader helmet?
Where did you score the Ewok?

What's that Blue Vader statue in the 7th picture down?

I love the 12" speeder bikes, probably my favourite modern toy's. I'm still after scoring a Biker scout one.

Really love your limelight mate, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

To answer your questions, no, that's just a cheesy Don Post helmet I've had for years. It's basically a glorified Halloween costume. But it looks pretty good. The Ewok came from a maker in Argentina. If I remember right, I think it was called Customsprops. I wasn't too happy when I got it. They had cut al ot of corners IMO. So I completely re-made the hood, spear, necklace, and repainted the skull cap. The blue Vader is just one of those vinyl banks they came out with. The blue one is the "holographic" version that was a SDCC exclusive. I like the unmasked version the best.

Hell yes, speeder bikes rock. I just recently got the big Sideshow Premium Format one in the pic. I love it. It's way radder in person. Heavy as hell too. It's like 3 feet long. The Sideshow box at my front door looked like a freakin coffin. I highly recommend it to any Speeder collectors. And I know there are a few on here.

Thanks again for all the compliments!
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Great collection Tad!

I also like the modern SW stuff and I'm not ashamed to admit it regardless of the abuse I may receive. Sad And speaking of unpopular opinions, I also think that Ewok is totally bad-ass. You did a great job redoing it to make it look like the stormtrooper killing machine we see in the movie!

Great collection all around! Keep up the good work.

Brad

I did some re-organizing, and took some better pics, so I figured I would post them up here. I don't want to edit the first post, I'd rather keep it going with a new post, so I can see how it's changed since I first posted. Again, There's a lot of modern here, but it feels weird to leave it out. I think it gives context to my whole collection. So here's my update!

Here's the entrance to my collection room.
