Hi everyone. My son and I collect together. It's a nice bonding thing that we both love. I wanted to show some of our collection that we worked hard on putting together.
Thanks for looking : )

Last 17 complete is the first 3 photos and my favorite 3 figures I own is the 4th and final photo.

The figure cases are such an underated display platform, they look great. What backdrop is that?

Thanks James : ) The backdrop comes from my son's 2010 Bespin Cloud Car box. I like it just because it brings me back to Empire. I agree, those figure cases are awesome for display...

Thanks again everyone for the kind words. One thing I can say for sure, you are better off buying complete figures because it's a pain to find all the real weapons later on. It took me quite awhile.... Not to mention doing the research to make sure the weapons were real.

Yup. I finally found a decent DT Luke : ) The first few days all I did was stare at him like geek (I was soooo happy). My son did cart wheels : )

Steve your current limelight only focuses on pre prod pieces, do you still have a production set?

I do still have some loose production pieces. But every piece I have limelighted above, is now gone. I sold every variant, such as my VC Jawas, Blue Snags, Fetts, to concentrate just on my first 12 focus. It's been a long and fun journey. I will be adding 1 new first shot, to my first 12 prototype collection in the next couple of months. It will be the rarest prototype in my collection. -Steve

Well Bryan, I had to sell my Engineering Pilot Luke to obtain this first shot. So now, I only have first shots in my first 12 prototype collection. EDIT: I do have a EP Stormtrooper that was kept and will stay in my collection. But I do have 8 first shots, in my first 12 prototype collection, to be exact. The 8th is the mystery piece, that I will announce, once it is paid for. : ) I feel, getting the last 4 first shots, may not be possible. But, we'll see what happens.

So the stormtrooper and luke are moved on to a new home? I am sure it will be worth it for what you are unveiling. So now to figure out how to get what's missing......

Well I know if it's a vader I would offer to help you beat up bill mcbride, but I saw the arms on that guy in Plastic Galaxy, so looks like your out of luck on that.

I misspoke. The Stormtrooper EP is not sold, nor will I be selling it. That was a gift from my good friend James Martin. That will be staying with me.... and it will look nice next to the new first shot I am adding : )

Bill, Steve has a new limelight here:
http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4138-concentration-on-first-12-pre-production-more-5-2-2015

He no longer focuses on production stuff and switched to preproduction. His new limelight is fantastic as it does include a large amount of history with his pieces.

This is such a cool collection to bond over.

My dad has his own personal (non pop culture) collections, but we still talk about collecting in general together!
