Very cool. I see multiples of some, are you doing coo variants? I started down the coo road, but it got crazy with how many variations there are so I cut back to major paint application differences for the most part.

Cheers,

These are normally tucked safely away in boxes so I've not seen them all together like this for ages.

Hi Trappedtexan, I'm with you on C.O.O. collecting.. it'd drive me crazy as well.

In most cases the duplicates are paint or sculpt variants, with others it's squad building... the Imperial Attack Base displays better with multiple Snowtroopers manning it.

Then there's the ones I've simply picked up because the price was right or, and usually it's Dengar, "Hey! He's in really nice condition, really cheap & I've got his gun in my spares box" Very Happy

I'm lucky that the majority of the weapons date from my childhood collection. Over the years, condition wise, I upgraded a fair few figures but I was always extra careful with accessories as a kid, at all times keeping them safely stored under the cockpit floor of the Rebel Transport and checking them in/out each play session... now-a-days they'd probably chalk it up as some kind of O.C.D. Laughing

Plus I started collecting "seriously" back in that golden period of the late 80's early 90's before it was considered cool, supply was plentiful, values were rock bottom & repro weapons were unheard of.

Good thing you had that O.C.D. early on! Laughing
