So here is what I've got so far since my wife and I moved into the house. I must say, time away from the military to work on my room is scarce, but it's a work in progress and I enjoy it. And I hope you enjoy the pics. Please feel free to ask questions.

A couple of center pieces of my collection include the original Star Wars Countertop Display filled with 12 backs in addition to the two sets of 12 backs on the wall. I also have the original shipping case for the countertop display. In the display case I have a mint sealed EBC kit with original newspaper ad, receipt, and Toys R Us invoice for the kit.

I have since filled the display case with more collectibles and rarities, so I will update pics very soon.

Cheers
Rob

So, I pulled out all my loose complete figures (I have 1500 of them) and started putting them on display. I've also been sorting through them, looking for any rare variations, something I've never done before. It's been work, but fun. Here's a few new pics.

I'm one Imperial Dignitary and one Yak Face shy of a 4th complete set of the vintage American figures. Shocked

Your collection/pictures is just as impressive the second time around. Are the tie bombers double/triples or something more significant?

That's a really nice display you have there. Love the non star wars stuff you have mixed in there, gives it a nice vintage toy store feeling .

Thank you very much!

Aussie,

The loose TIE Bombers are just extras. Very Happy I always loved that piece. I just picked up the MISB TIE bomber about 8 months ago.

Thanks for sharing the pics here Rob. Some really great early SW items. Good to see the Takara Zetca moc too - don't often see all those in a collection, I have the X-Wing, I think they make neat little mocs cheers

Like also the nice mix of oddball stuff! Btw if you find time in the future to take individual pics of the oddball stuff they will be made most welcome here: TIG International Oddball Resource

Cheers!

Paul

Thank you.

I love the Zetca die cast. I'm in need of the C-3PO and Landspeeder. Had the C-3PO as a kid, but sold it when I was in high school in the early 90s. Sad

Holy crap dude Shocked are you trying to corner the market on vintage Star Wars figures or something? 2 Yak Faces, 3 vinyl cape Jawas, leave some for the rest of us mere mortals please!

It's like stumbling across the lost city of Zinj Smile Very impressive.

Great collection and elegantly displayed. Thanks for sharing!

Curious: What is inside the little box, in the display cabinet, next to the encased Luke Jedi?

And what is the Toys 'R Us paperwork behind the Early Bird mailer?

Cheers

I'll take some closeups of the EBC with the invoice, receipt and ad, tomorrow and post them up.

Marco, not sure what you are talking about. I don't have an encased Luke Jedi in the display cabinet. If you can provide a better reference, I will gladly answer your question.

Dax,

I have 3 Yaks. The third one is on display on top of my display cabinet with the POTF figs.

I have been collecting SW for 30+ years. I bought tons of it over the last 20 years buying collections from other people, and so forth. I've always had an addiction to the action figures.

It's time to thin it out though.

I'm in the process of sorting through what I absolutely want to keep and what I want to sell or trade.

I can't keep this much anymore. Sad

I think Marco means what's in this jewellery box?:

LOL!! I see now. I took the Luke Jedi out of my display case. Rather than reference the old photos, I was looking at the current display. LOL

Stupid me.

Yeah, that is the Star Wars ring set. I have lots of other original Star Wars jewelry yet to be displayed. Though, not worth much, I always liked the ring set.

Thanks Aussie!
