BTW I know the stormies not movie accurate but I had to do it on a budget because my family likes to eat!

Looking great!! Even some POTF figures.. nice Smile

It is a lot of fun collection the loose set.. almost tempted to start another set just for the fun of getting each figure again.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone! I was a little nervous about posting my collection after seeing everyone elses impressive displays.
As for the stormie I started out with a halloween costume mounted to a "skeleton" of pvc pipe wrapped in quilt batting. The armor was made out of foam so I spray painted it with a latex paint to make it a little more shiney. I'm glad you guys like it cuz it took quite a few weekends to put together.

Brad

There is no reason to be nervous at all! Got some nice stuff there dude!

More importantly , even if someone's collection is a single loose weaponless C-4 Klaatu (with no skirt) NOBODY is going to judge here anyway. Everyone's got different stuff and that's what makes these limelights so great. If they all looked the same it wouldnt be interesting.

If this is the beginning of your collecting, you're off to a great start. If you're done collecting, you put together a great set. If you're in the middle like all of us then enjoy the hunt!!!

Thanks! This is exactly why I decided to join up with you guys here at TIG. I never felt comfortable enough at rs to post let alone put up pictures! After lurking around here for awhile though you guys all seemed more laid back so I finally felt relaxed enough to start contributing instead of just lurking!
Thanks again!
Brad

Ahar!!! does look nice Brad, hey at least yours is on display m8 lol mines in bags/boxes/cupboards/drawers and even on my desk, no room for a display really Sad

You have lots of room there so i guess youll be hitting the shopping channel like us lol

And yah i like that Stormy too, nice job - do you have a photographic build of it? i would love to get that onto a vid for you and host it on our Youtube channel.

"a single loose weaponless C-4 Klaatu (with no skirt)"

John dude lol your lucky i dont paste that in the dodgy chat thread, reads like some cheap hussy female Klaatu thats naked in some dating mag addy

I've never worked out why there isn't much love for the Ewoks but I'm glad to see you have them front and center Smile And you have far more patience than me to build the Stormie.

There we go picking on the ewoks again. Next thing you know it'll be on to Jar Jar. lol!

Very nice collection you've got going there Brad! I love the figures lined up on the shelves like that! And the blue walls are a nice touch. Reminds me of some ESB cardbacks! Smile

I was thinking that Chris about the blue it works well!

Great start Brad you got a great mix of figures there including last 17! and from what i can see they are complete as well which is always a good move!

Are you looking for any particular figures at the moment buddy?

Excellent collection Brad! I like the Ewok theme you have going there and for some reason they never bothered me like most. I think it is because I was the right age to like them and the Ewoks movies. (Let the hating begin. lol)

I'm glad you shared your collection and feel bad that you were nervous about it. We all start somewhere and it takes time to build up a display. What matters is that it is your collection and you have it displayed how you want it. I was just remembered yesterday about my old display. Smile

WOW!! Thanks for all the great compliments guys. It means a lot coming from all the experts. I wish I would have taken pics during the building of the stormtrooper but at the time I didn't think anyone would be interested in seeing it being built. I wish I would've found TIG sooner while I was building it because my wife and daughter just thought I was nuts!

HaHa!! This has been a pretty full day-lots of compliments and resparked the old "Ewok Debate". It's funny that the Ewoks were never my favorite character in the movies-even though I don't hate them either-but so far they've been some of the funnest time I've had collecting so far.

Very nice Brad, there is no such thing as a humble collection and yours is no exception to that rule Smile

I like the custom Stormie, that thing is cool, its going to be interesting to see how your collection grows now you are part of the
community! I hope we see some updates as time goes on!
