Very nice Mark. It's a real buzz to buy new cabinets and get your collection displayed.

That Glass cabinet weighs a bloody ton aswell doesn't it? jawdrop

Thanks for the kind comments lads! Very Happy

You're right about that glass cabinet Stu,its bloody heavy!

I was surprised at how easy ikea furniture is to put together though,DIY isn't my strong point.

Thanks again to Stu & Jimmy for the inspiration,most of my stuff was stashed under my bed until now! Laughing

I'm going to have to buy some more figure stands as some of the figures fall over when you open/close the door plus i need to get a couple of speeder bikes to add to the endor scene. Very Happy

Mark,

Your collection looks sweet! Are they all MISB or MIB? That IKEA bookshelf looks to be the perfect size for the larger items like the boxed Death Star etc.

Cheers,
Rob.

Hey Rob,

They're all MIB mate,i couldn't afford a MISB collection plus i like to take them out the boxes once in a while & have a look(play)at them! Very Happy

The IKEA units are really good for display as you can adjust the shelves plus they are quite cheap & easy to put together!

looks great , bet ya you had a lot of fun making the cabinet and , getting your collection from under the bed and thinking of what , where , and how to put the items

i know i love that part

and i bet , that when you gat some more of those selves to display the rest of the boxed items , it will be a jewel to look at

only thing better then your display , is your display with your women naked in front of it i always say DarthStanley's Collection:Update 10/08: Icon_biggrin

well to each his own wife and collection offcourse DarthStanley's Collection:Update 10/08: Icon_wink

Wow Mark, your MIB collection has grown really quickly. I'm very impressed with Max Rebo with blue arms just like his body & 8D8 hiding in the corner (where he belongs Razz ) Are you going to have enough room to display all your boxed stuff if you get more shelves? Under the bed is not doing them justice Wink Have you fixed your B-wing?

Jimmy,i did enjoy putting the shelves together & was surprised how easy ikea stuff goes together as DIY isn't my strong point! Rolling Eyes

James,i hope my Rebo doesn't fade like others do & its something i'll have to watch out for.My collection is in my attic which is also my bedroom & there is 2 skylights so i'll have to watch out where the sun hits when we eventually get any! Very Happy

I'm hoping to have enough room to put the rest of my collection on shelves & my plan is to put more shelves along the wooden rail on the left side & the wall on the right so its shaped like an upside down U.The only problem will be when i get an AT AT & Ewok Village as they are massive but i'll figure it out. :scratch:

I haven't fixed my B Wing yet as i'm waiting on the replacement part arriving from the US.I ordered this part here:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360201578377&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I'm hoping to just replace the grey part on the far right which the cone shaped part screws into but i still don't know if this is possible & i don't really want to replace the whole cockpit as the B Wing is an absolute nightmare to put back together again.It took me over an hour the last time i tried & it done my head in. head bang

Cheers,

Mark.

Great collection you got there, mate.

It will be splinted when you get shelf’s for the last MIB items.

Some excellent stuff there!

Out of interest, how much are the glass shelves in IKEA? There's an outlet in Belfast and next time I do a booze cruize up north I might pick up a couple.
