Hi guys its a while since I have given much time to the TIG notice boards mainly because of work committments but have tried to keep my hand in picking up various bits and thought I now have enough to add something to this topic.
I picked up my first VSW item which happened to be a B-Wing pilot baggie off Ebay in April of this year before I had any clue what I was doing and the rest has happened over the last 6 months but could not have happened without the help of too many people to mention who are all on this Forum this is my collection so far and hope it proves to be of interest .....

Boxed collection with my 3 MOC (Hope to get some more ESB soon)

Tony thats a great start mate and I really like the shelving unit to display everthing. Really fresh looking! A few Luke Jedi related toys that I don't have yet too!-Well done! bounce

The Loose collection is great! It goes to show what you can do with a little bit work.

Superb stuff, Tony! You've been busy and they're all displayed very nicely too Cool The collection looks great!
Noticed the selection of cool SW annuals on the shelf too - excellent items, also the Meccano to Trilogo book (would you recommend this book?)

Look forward to more updates! Thanks for sharing cheers cheers

I am sure Tony has his own opinions of the book Paul but I must say - I would highly recommend you pick it up!
It would even be a great reference and tool for you if you were to find some local MOC Meccano stuff!

It's a great book plain and simple!

Thanks again guys
Mark as you know the 'Billy' bookcases seem to have been made for some of the Kenner boxes and the great beauty is the shelves can be re-configured plus you can buy additional ones ....... still got a way to catch up with you Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks for sharing pics Tony! Smile

It's great to see your collection finally! The display looks excellent! I think my favorite by far is the mini-rigs, followed up closely with the framed posters! Very Happy

Also, for what it's worth, I too highly recommend Stephane's Meccan to Tri-Logo book!

Very nice Tony! The display cases look great and you've done very well for yourself in roughly 5 months of collecting.

Outstanding collection Tony i cant believe you got so much stuff in 6 months!!!

Personal favorite of mine is the ROTJ Luke Hoth Kenner MOC that looks a gem with a sweet clear bubble to boot! - If you ever look to sell or trade it let me know Smile

Love the framed posters as well im gonna be doing the same once i finsh fixing the dam the wall in my collection room Smile

Look the display set up as well mate!

Cheers Jay

Thanks Chris, Shawn and Jay

Jay although I am trying to collect the first 12 figures on ESB cards I do love that Luke Hoth as well and unlikely its gonna leave anytme soon but of course I will gice you a 'heads up' if it does.
I did at one time consider a focus on that character but having seen the price on some of the MOC I got a little frightened but maybe one day lol!
