Here are some pictures of my collection room.

As you can see I'm currently in the middle of a move. Sad I should have the new collection room up some time in December, but in the meantime here are some pictures of what the room used to look like.

I definitely prefer that display case full instead of empty Shawn, but don't worry only a short space of time and you get a whole new display room to play with!

I think you are another person who has a tidy collection, your two display cabinets and acrylic cases for your mailers and Luke Jedi focus make the room really shine, great set of coins as well , almost there Wink

Awesome Share Shawn

Luke Jedi for me is probably the best vintage figure every made!

I got to say the loose figure cabinet is a great idea it looks just like a cardback! Defo a great and innovative way to display loose figures.

What can i say about the coin collection! The finish line is definitely coming into view and its been great following your quest for them. I could never have the type of focus and dedication needed to complete one of those sets (i don't thing my wallet would stretch that far either Laughing ) Major Kudos :!:

I look forward to the December update Smile

Those glass display cabinets are great. I hate moving! You are closer to completing a full set of coins than I am to the Cat 1&2s Embarassed I bet the new collection room will see some improvements & new additions?

Awesome, I am so glad you got the ref photo when you had the chance, you know I missed my chance at the 8D8 but I would have been annoyed if you had missed out as well!

Not only a great focus but great quality as well, most of the carded figures look shelf fresh!

Cheers Joe. I should have just snagged up the 8D8 when those came up for you. I hope at some point in the future you get a chance to get it. Out of the 3 Luke Jedi ones, this was my favorite.

Looks great Shawn, can't wait to see the collection in it's new disply.

Lovin the transformers, I can see a Unicron there. I also have the black version.
Haven't got an Omega Supreme and it's one I've always wanted.

That's a fair few mailers you've got there as well mate Cool

Hi Shawn

Can you tell me some of the history of that reference photo? Looks a really cool piece for your focus Angry SW

Cheers Jay

Thanks Stu. During the off times for SW I collect Transformers mainly from the reissue lines. I lucked out with the Omega in that a local collector was selling up. I always wanted one as a kid as my cousin had one that we used to play with.

I started the mailer focus a few years ago. I feel I've been pretty lucky with some of the items I've been able to pick up for that run. I still want to pick up the early bird set to go with it, but imagine that will have to wait until after I'm done with POTF coins. Very Happy

No problem Jay. Theearth turned up the reference photos earlier in the year. Luckily they haven't removed the page yet so you can still see what was available. I was hoping mine would have had the confidential stamp shown at the top of the page, but it did not. However, it does have the copyright stamp of 1982 that I have shown in the corner on my photo.

Hope the move goes/went ok m8. Can't wait to see the new setup.

Shawn I love that cabinet display case you made for your loose figs.

Whoever said it... they nailed it on the button!!! Looks like the cardback!!!

I would like some kinda display case eventually. But something with locking doors!!!

So when my wife and I start a family my kids cant get their grubby hands on em!!!!

I agree. I haven't hung the case up at my new place yet for that reason. I've been doing a bit of research to see about doing a proper front with locking doors. That should also help with dust as it is a pain to dust it out every so often.


I've added pictures of the Lili Ledy Cardback that 3 elves sent to me. Smile Hopefully this year I can add a complete figure to go with it.

Okay finally a time for an update. Smile I still don't have my loose case back up on the wall from after the move, but the display cabinets are about how I want them now and the last shot shows the current status of the coin frame.

Very nice Shawn!

I'm loving the mail away displays! That and the figure cases! That ROTJ one looks fantastic! Smile

Also the Luke shipping boxes are pretty cool as well!

Shawn the collection is looking great mate.
Luke jedi is my favourite figure too, and the one i have most memories of as a child.

If i was going to do a focus he would be a strong contender.
I bet there are still loads and loads of bits to hunt down.

I'll think yours is one of the best displayed collections i've seen m8. I think you're missing a few things in that frame tho!
