Very elegantly displayed focus collection, Paul!! I love it. Very Happy

My personal favorites: the Star Wars X-Wing box (that artwork,...one of the best ever IMO), the micro collection X-Wing box, and the set of loose Luke X-Wing pilot variants.

Time for an update. Most of my collection is still boxed away due to lack of display space Sad

I've added some nice pieces recently, so it was time to unpack some boxes today and get some new photos!

all updated pics on page 1

hope you enjoy Wink

cheers paul

Simply love it.

Clean and attractive display with those boxes.

The Palitoy box rocks, as well as the SW box. cheers

Updates all on post 1 page 1.

Thanks for looking Smile

I've never been much of a Luke x-wing fan but seeing all of these pieces together has made me see the light.The box art and all the different oddball items just scream Star Wars and i love the addition of the custom figures cheers

Glad you've seen the light cheers I've always liked Luke Pilot for being the first 'pilot uniform' figure. Also his blaster doesn't fall out of his hand :cool laugh:

But I think it's the X-Wing vehicle that really screams Star Wars for me - it's such an iconic design and one of the first three vehicles. I also like how the vehicle was represented throughout all the toy lines and how the X-Wing and TIE Fighter imagery was used so much in the early days.

Cheers Clint. Sadly I don't have a permanent display place atm so I have to be content with unboxing and boxing back up. But it's always a nice surprise to see what you have again after not seeing things for a while Smile

Great update Paul! I love the colours of this card and fig and they look stunning when displayed like you have.

Nice work and definitely something to emulate.

Absolutely stunning collection. Some really inspiring stuff. The Takara items are brilliant and i'm liking the effort of the home made dioramas.
I'm a LXW collector myself. I don't have quite as much as you or Marc C, but i'm happy for the time being. I do have two of Marc's bootlegs now though.
You've now made me want to buy another ship!

Paul, somehow in my time here I missed your limelight. Don't know how or why, but dang it I should have seen it earlier. This is a great focus and an awesome collection. I love the customs and the diaroma also.

Thank you Bryan cheers

Thank you Jez  cheers  I'm glad there is another LXW collector posting here now  cheers  I saw you had a Popy and a Proof recently? Just amazing! Get a limelight up here when you get chace. Yes, Marc is the godfather of LXW and helped me out with some of the  Vintage X-Wing Fighter Vehicle Variations info. 

I sometimes think my focus would be more, erm, 'focused' if I only collected the ship or the figure - but I can never decide which I prefer the most so just try and grab a bit of everything cheers ... then there's the oddball stuff that's always tempting :I am stupid:

Hey Paul - haven't seen your limelight in literally years!!! Wow it looks really cool with the display. And you have managed to pick up some real beauties.

My favourite is the glaslite x-wing. Very cool and I didn't know it has the name decals on the sides.

That prototype X-wing coin is also great, someone even greater must of helped you get that one Wink

@Craig T  Hi Craigy, yep that guy that got me the Luke XW coin is one cool dude Cool Very happy to have that in my collection. The Glasslite is my fave too, such a cool X-Wing.
