Hi Guys,
I've just joined the forum and said hello in the "Say hello thread". Very Happy

30 years in the making (3 years for the most of it), but i'm well happy with this lot

I plan to get a nice ESB Farmboy one day, as thats were it all began for me. I also need to replace the repro VC Jawa with the real deal and swop the A Wing Pilot Endor blaster for a black one and the Luke Stormtrooper blaster for the real one apart from that i'm well chuffed. The Shuttle box will be replaced by some form of Tie Fighter around Xmas time.

Absolutely stunning display! It's a great assortment of stuff Jez. You'll laugh but what caught my eye the most was the VME actually "in use" with the X Wing Fighter. You might be the first person ever to actually use that thing!!

Looks great, thanks for sharing!

Great display with a little bit of everything there from loose to interesting moc to cool vehicle & figure displays!!
Agree with John that is a cool way to display the VME alongside an X-Wing! Thanks for sharing your cool collection with us!

Welcome Jez!!

What a great collection!

I have the same IKEA cabinets, but haven't managed such a clean display yet. I can learn from you.

Cheers

What?? Noooooooooooooooooo!!

I thought i had been so careful. I had used various internet sources, the water test, the drop test etc. I even almost went medieval on someone who sold me a Teebo and his staff sank, i subsequently learnt that all Teebo staffs sink.
I had ascertained that i had a repro Luke Stormie weapon and repro jawa cape but that was it. I was sure that all of my ewok stuff was legit.
I think that the Warok is on the left and the Lumat on the right. The added unintentional complication is i may have accidentally just mixed them up Embarassed

Hey Jez

The two bows you have there are both Lumat bows - they both look fine. Warok's bow should be darker
