PostSubject: My collection limelight - Tri Logo, Vintage and some Modern   My collection limelight - Tri Logo, Vintage and some Modern I_icon_minitimeTue Aug 20, 2013 2:43 am

Hi all, I'd like to share with you some pictures of my collection.
It isn't that much, but I choose to collect quality over quantity in terms of only buying things I really enjoy - amongst them quite a few modern items like the 12 inch Sideshows and my only remaining POTF2 Figures, the Luke Jedi Variants.

My main focus since the beginning of this year are Tri Logos, and I'm quite happy with what I've been able to get so far.

Sadly, another big part of my collection - posters - has to stay rolled up for the moment. But I plan on getting myself some frames and displaying some of the nice old German 1-sheets soon.

Enjoy, I'm looking forward to your comments.
Steve


Modern and vintage display cases

Modern stuff

Sideshow figures
That Bandai C-3PO is an absolute masterpiece. Not cheap, and had to be imported from Japan, but well worth it. Easily one of my favorite purchases of the year. The Snowtrooper and Sandtrooper are very very impressive too.

Some nice 12 inch clones and a Kotobukiya Vader statue acting as placeholder until the new one from SS comes out in 2014

Vintage stuff

Some German items: TIE Fighter (used to be shrink-wrapped and has the German instructions; all stickers unapplied): complete sets of mini-puzzles (hint hint: I need the display bin for those!) and mustard glasses; soap figures; quartet; audio cassette; mini catalogue (the one with the funky prototypes in it)

German read-alongs in the background, the Tri Logo Sand Skimmer is sealed.

German ROTJ puzzles in the background, a nice German ESB sticker on the left with the matching promo booklet... and an A-Wing ;-)

Some boxed items

Somehow I've always loved that CAP-2 for its 70s orange-pink background Wink The AT-ST box is in halfway decent shape, but it was cheap and all the innards are there and unused.

My complete loose collection including some of the major variants (Ben, Han, Luke, VC Jawa, Blue Snag and so on)

And finally, my (now mostly Tri-Logo) MOC collection.
The B-Wing is in tip-top shape - my favorite purchase this year by far!
Plus, an R2-D2 cookie jar I got as a birthday gift from my colleagues last Monday. Fantastic piece!

Some of the posters I have up at the moment, from Germany (SE Trilogy) and Singapore (EP2)

And last but not least - my little modern Luke Jedi focus: 2 brown vests (one with the raised-bars lightsaber, one with the indented-bars saber) and the Theater Edition Luke. Still love them after over 15 years of having them in my collection.

Nice collection, I see you have several of the more desirable boxed vehicles. Although I don't collect modern pieces those Bandai are very nice :clap: :clap:

Steve that's a fantastic display/collection. A huge variety & you can see that you've focused on quality. What makes the poster Singaporean? ( it can speak 4 languages!!! )

Thanks for the compliments James!
Actually, I have no idea what is Singaporean about the EII posters. I just remember them being advertised as such in the ebay auction when I bought them.
They were really cheap too, about 8 EUR apiece IIRC.

Hi guys, it has been a while since I posted an update, and I realized that apparently I moved the original pictures, so nothing is showing up in the first post.
This is a wrong I intend to right, so without further ado, here's my collection as of this Saturday.

Enjoy the pictures, and everyone have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Thanks so much guys.

Here is some new stuff I added in the past weeks. It's not toys, but vintage and I like both pieces quite a bit.

A ROTJ mirror, used to promote the release of the movie on VHS in video stores back in 1984

A side panel sticker that was meant to be used on the ROTJ arcade game in 1983 (?)

Congrats! That ROTJ mirror is really cool, a nice piece to add to a collection.
The side panel for the arcade is an interesting add too. Was it something that never made it onto the finished piece or just a spare part? Pretty cool anyway.

I got it from a guy who lives close to Atari's headquarters and picked up a couple of them at a toy show recently.
My guess is they were overstock.
