Hi everybody.

A couple of years (or so) ago my home needed a new central heating system fitting.
This entailed the total emptying of the loft, for a couple of days, whilst the work was being carried out.. so I grabbed the opportunity to take a picture of all my (childhood) Star Wars toys which are kept in storage due lack of display space. Hope you don't mind me sharing 'em.

Vehicles:

Cardbacks:

Those were the days!

Thanks for looking

Many thanks.
I come from a family of hoarders, very little ever got thrown away.

I've still got the backing cards for the very first & last figures I purchased new from toy shops too:
[img]Storage (Star) Wars 11499397514_0ccc8d02c9_c[/img]
Farmboy Luke & Warok. Luke's (the figure itself) in appalling condition.. but I'm so sentimentally attached that I'll never part with him.

I'm surprised these are in such good condition...

.. as I spent ages drooling over them Laughing 

Hi Artoo-Detour, Yep it was wonderful to play with them again Very Happy 

They've gone a little yellow around the edges, with age, but I was always careful so it's all complete & unbroken:

Anther hobby of mine is setting up (photographing) toy dioramas, it was fantastic to be able to recreate scenes & classic box-art while I had the chance Smile

That is a first class childhood collection. Thanks for sharnig, Eddie! Very Happy
It is like you took those boxes from a time machine instead of from your loft.

Great pictures too. I like the remake of the ROTJ Milllennium Falcon box art.

Those are in fantastic shape, they must have been well taken care of and well stored away. cheers

Many thanks for the nice comments guys.

I recently undertook the task of photo-cataloguing my collection loose vintage figures (one again lack of room dictates they are kept in storage Sad )

Here's some of the better photo's:
Storage (Star) Wars 11823529734_3d432bdcd8_b

Storage (Star) Wars 11890456865_6b3d03aece_b

Storage (Star) Wars 11890877984_f0f3f154c3_b

Storage (Star) Wars 11891309126_a9c0f7fe09_b

Boba's paint job's very battle worn (I've got a much better one) but he's got immense sentimental value.
