Already a TIG member for one year now and still no limelight.......

The main reason is that I am still working on it, but progress is very slow.

TIG is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.

Even when "we shall double our efforts" Very Happy, I am afraid you would have to wait for another year to get the final display. So better show some stuff now.

I have started to liberate my loose figures from their zipper bags, followed by labeling and placing them in their newly arrived glass cabinets, just in random order for the time being. After reading stories about figures getting discoloured in zipper bags, I am happy to have them out there now.

When the figures are all in place, I will start to make some shelves for the boxes.

Ninety % is vintage, besides I collect some POTF2 stuff. I also like custom vintage figures.

Cheers.

I forgot to tell that all loose figures are vintage. Even the 'modern' custom figures have a vintage core, though it might not look that way at first appearance.

For instance the clone trooper has a vintage stormtrooper core, and Hermi Odle and Ephant Mon (creatures from Jabba's court) both have a vintage Max Rebo core. All crafted by skilfull customizers, I wish I had those skills Very Happy.

Top stuff Marco, can't wait to see the updates! And congrats on your 1st year TIG anniversary cheers

The production figs look cool alongside the customs - the Ephant and Hermi figs are just ace! Cool

The Jabba dio is class, especially with the Rancor setting below.

Loved the pic of Hammerhead though - he looks like he's about to blow his own brains out :explosion:

...and so many nice boxed items too! Congrats mate Cool

Love the diorama. Nice mix of figures you got going on there. Is that a custom luke ceremonial I see in the mix . It looks cool.

Love the pics of all the stuff in boxes. Looks like a store. Thanks for sharing. Keep us updated.

Hey Marco!

I hope all is well buddy? And happy belated 1-year anniversary! I missed your limelight when I when on hols. Just looking though it now.

I love the collection room with the shelves filled with bursting with star wars goodies. It must be great to going home after work and just gaze at your collection all out on display. I like Watto hiding behind the boxes too! “whatta you wanta!” Glad your freeing your figures from their poly-prisons too!

I think this is the first time I have seen your Jabba diorama in the full. The craftsmanship is class! What are the walls made of? It looks really realistic! The cave below is really cool too. You’re very talented dude!

You are very right there Craig, after a hard day of work, it can be sooooo relaxing to sit on a chair and just stare at the collection. Pure joy. Very Happy

No I wish I had the patience and the craftmanship to make such diorama myself. I bought the diorama from another dutch collector. I always thought it was made in the mid 90s to promte the POTF2 line. But I recently understood it might even be older.
