Yeah. I may do just that.

So far the only upcoming one on my list to hunt for is Jaina Solo.

My current collection, all in box:

- Darth Maul
- Boba Fett
- Boba Fett (Prototype)
- Ahsoka Tano (both 6", 3.75" -- favorite modern character)
- Sabine Wren
- Captain Rex (HasCon Exclusive)
- Commander Cody
- Commander Gree (TRU Exclusive)
- Inferno Squad Agent (GameStop Exclusive)
- Captain Phasma
- Force Spirit Obi-Wan (Walgreens Exclusive)
- Darth Revan (still my proudest find in the "wild" to date)
- Poe Dameron & 9's two pack (from Bryan)

I collect what I like, no rhyme or reason to it. Not looking to have them all, complete a set or a group, etc.

Also have the Jabba set and Speeder Bike Scout, but looking to move them. I sold off the Luke and Wampa, and the Han and Tauntaun.

Really nice displays!

Jealous of the Bossk and IG-88. bounce

I feel like a lot of the ones you have, I've been putting off for awhile (i.e. Lando, Tusken Raider, Jawa).

I just paid a nice chunk of change toward my S.H. Figuarts collection.

Sometimes it's a burden to have other collections going on! lol!

Thanks! I actually love the 6" a little more than my vintage. The 6" are, for me, the perfect size for detail and realism. I highly recommend the Tusken Raider. They did a really smashing job with him.

Those S.H. Figuarts figures are super nice. I've been tempted, but like you say it's a burden to divide your focus.

Yeah, I really like the cloth. Glad they didn't decide to go with plastic like some other figures that have been released.

And I think you should get at least one S.H. or look into their Star Wars line. lol!

If you like displaying and posing, this may be the line for you. The articulation is ridiculous and they scale well with Black Series.

Only complaint is the secondary market price on some of them. throw up

Great collection breakdown, Cal. Good to see how some of the figures compare. Maybe it's the way they're lined up but the Tusken looks really tall when IG-88 looks quite short? Bossk also looks really tall.

I have a couple of the older series coming in hopefully the weekend, and one or two others in sight. After these (and seeing Cal's display) would like to add a Tusken, Bossk, IG-88 and Leia Boushh.

the IG-88 is a great looking figure, but he doesn't like to stand! I've had him on stands and loose, and he eventually falls over. When I've had him pegged to stands, he literally bent at the leg to drop over. His legs are very soft and flexible. It's never resulted in damage, but the solution was to give him a weird pose to improve his balance. As a result he stands shorter than he is. And the picture is a bit of an odd angle.

In truth, IG-88 is a bit taller than Bossk, and Bossk is a little taller than the Tusken. The Tusken is probably what would pass for "average height" in the series.

Excited to see your new figs!

And that's a little disappointing to hear about IG-88 not standing at his tallest.

I said I was going to get at least one 40th Anniversary moc just to say I have one. So here it is, Princess Leia. And wow, I was impressed. Hasbro made some face alterations compared to the black box issue Leia and I think the likeness is really good. Also liking the soft goods gown that can be manipulated (I used an artist fine paint brush) to fit around the contours of her body. The hood is a little wild and a bit too much on the pointy side for me, but with some patience and manipulation can be made presentable.
















After taking and downloading the photos yesterday, I put them into my editor for cropping and framing – and that’s when things got a bit weird  alien  as I went completely off topic and began messing about with art filters…

some interesting results!

Amazing pictures! Leia looks like a great figure.

I know what you mean about the face. Usually they botch the human faces, but that Leia and I'm pretty sure 40th Han look really great!

Not sure if they're using face printing yet, but if not, i'm even more excited when they do!
