Very nice Adam! I don't follow Trems, but I can imagine a lot of work goes into tracking them down.

On the Leia Boushh, do you just swap the heads to show her with the mask off?

Nice show Adam!

Forgive me for asking though... what are Trems - are they Bootlegs from a specific country?

:Drool:

Very, very nice mate.

You don't know how much I would love to have a run like that.

It was photos of Adam's collection on SWF that inspired me to start on my Trem hunt.

These have to be one of the coolest and most fun bootleg lines to collect. They are very rare and hardly come up, I've been collecting for near a year now and have picked up nearly every one I have seen become available and I only have 14.

Cracking mate, really great run.

Have you been collecting loose or have you been picking up boxes aswell??

I've picked a couple of boxes along the way but they went to a better home, I am mainly interested in the figures and although a complete boxed collection would be a simply fantastic thing, most of the figures that came to me were without their cardboard homes.

Heres another good site that explains a bit on the background of Trems!

"is like 3 tits to me covered in weed " nice one Jimmy Laughing And Adam, as said already that is a sight to behold. I can just imagine how hard it is to track down lead figures of any sort with such good paint still applied.

Thanks for showing your amazing collection and sharing the info.

This is a great run Adam. When I was thinking about getting more into bootlegs these were on my radar but I knew I'd chew on them and get lead poising or something so I didnt Razz

Seriously its an amazing site and the condition overall is outstanding. That must have been some search for them.

This is one of the photos that got me so interested in Model Trem's.

I haven't started down that path yet, but I fully intend to in the future. Adam, your run is a dream mate! It looks fantastic! Smile

Adam that is one great collection.

Most of the trem figures that I have seen for sale are really beat up compared to this lot.

Great run, first time I´ve seen anything like it. The Model Trem story sure makes it a unique collectable, and there are just plain fun to look at What a Face
