I decided to give the Vader focus it's own limelight, so it doesn't get lost in all my other junk.

So without further ado....

Here's the entrance to The Darthenon, complete with an original, priceless drawing by my 7-year-old.

The figures are 4 deep, with no duplicates. They're all variants. Have a ton to go though!

Big thanks to Paul for turning me on to these things!

This is the best Christmas present I've ever received. Last Christmas my sister got this. It's a hand-painted toilet seat. It's done in metallic auto paints. The pic doesn't do it justice.

This is a cool cromalin for an unproduced Hasbro line from the mid '90's.

I commented on your thread over at POTF2, but I just had to add one here too -- that custom toilet lid is freakin' amazing.

And that Takara Vader is a beauty. cheers

Superb DarthTad, absolutely superb. I love the focus collections on here, it amazes me how concentrating on just one
character can still be so interesting, great stuff mate. I'll bet the piece on the door is the best in your entire collection though. Wink

What a truly excellent display!

I really like how you set up your collection Tad and you have a great variety of pieces there. The vintage cardback collection is coming on great too but my favourite is the great print of Vader on Hoth with the detroyed At-At behind.

Class!

Damn, Tad, the more I keep seeng those lamps the more I keep liking them! The artwork on the loo seat is soooo cool - I wonder if the same art could be transferred to a guitar or bass body? Or bass drum head? Really cool limelight mate, nice yu can include some of your own artwork too - and a very sweet lil picture on the front door too cheers

WOW, a room fully stocked with Vaders items!!! affraid

A very nice collection, you got there Tad!


Hasbro cromaline from the mid 90s: Nice item!
So Hasbro was planning to release figures on vintage like cards instead of the red/green cards? Pity they didn't do so in the end.

BTW: Is there also a place to sit and look at your collection?
Maybe you could consider a chair like the one below? Very Happy

Wow...I'm more impressed every time I look at it. I've got to ask, is there a story behind Vader Flakes? The art on the door is priceless! Love you Darth Dad! You must be very proud, my hat's off to you.

It's a real shame that these photo's from this awesome collection have been taken down.
Any chance we can see them put back Darth Tad?
I came back to find this limelight and check to find a MOC variant, it served as one of the best visual references for collectors.
I hope to see it up again.
Cheers.
Oscar.
