Killer collection  :Drool: :Drool: :Drool: 

All those loose vintage imperials together look amazing! Also like how you displayed the First Shot head on the custom clear body - great idea. Such a cool collection, thanks for sharing.

Very cool Oscar!

I'm in the thinking process of a display case to show my MOCs and loose Leia Bespin bits.
That cabinet is sweet! Is that store bought or custom made?

Very nice man and WOW Shocked what a ton of Vaders!!!! cheers

Thanks for the nice comments gentleman.
Makes me happy you all like it too.

Paul- the clear torso was a request I made to falcontoys
http://falcontoys.storenvy.com/products
he makes some unique customs, this is one of his Death Vapor customs
which I asked to be made in clear for the purpose of holding the head.

Jay- It took a while to find a cabinet with the right measurements,
I guess you could call it store bought, LOL, got it from a Camera/Photo store that closed down.
Condition was good, and was half the cost of getting one custom made.

Wollf- You can never have too many Vaders, LOL.
I do remember your army very well, and that AWESOME deathstar hanger dio you displayed them in,
I have all those photos saved, and they are still my favourite photos of all.
The AT-ST drivers are a challenge to find in good condition and with weapon.

 Very Happy

I love the clear vader for the head Oscar! I started a similar project for my Bespin Luke LL overstock heads, I used a Bespin Luke body and arms but cut the bottom of the torso off and cut the arms near the top on an angle so it kinda looks like a bust statue. The idea is to cast it and then make clear resin copies to hold the heads, just haven't got round to that part yet.
 
Really love the look and it's nice to see what it will look like... which is fantastic! Shows off the head perfectly!
 
Overall great stuff  cheers

*edit* Forgot to say, there is a guy on RS selling a Takara Vader with the white backer  Very Happy

Alex- the clear bust is a great idea and will look good.
I have my eye on that Takara Vader and his GDE one also. cyclops 
Jake is a big source of a lot of my loose figures, and his stuff is always top quality.

Absolutely stunning. This is probably the largest focus I have seen. And no wonder it is so hard to find a taiwan only vader.....you have them all locked up.  lol! 

I do have one question. Why so many emporer mail aways? Are they all different in some way, like the vaders, or did you just end up with a bunch and decided to keep them?

Holy crap! I have never seen that many Vader figures (or Stormtroopers for that matter) in one place before! No words for the awesomeness we just saw. No words.

Oscar,
I was just wondering, did you decide to display your lettered hilt sabers with the corresponding coo family figure, or have you just used spare figures to display the sabers?

Thanks for your kind words fellas.

Chris, each lettered saber is still with the figure it came with,
a handful of them came from a trusted source as off damaged cards,
I.1a
I.1b
III.1a
III.1b
VII.1a
VII.1b
seems to be the bulk of them

Thanks Oscar,
but there are more letter variations, than there are coo's, so do you display all your sabers, using duplicate figures, or do you not display all of your lettered saber's in this way?
