Should I add in the weapons or just leave them locked away?

Congrats on your lovely display, it looks really good!  cheers  ... especially that R2  Wink

I would recommend keeping all weapons with the figures they came with. That way in the future and we're trying to match figures with correct variants of weapons we have more evidence to say "this accessory came with that figure", I realise a MoC is best for that but they can be hard to come by. The TIG guide is invaluable for that too, I always try to re-match the correct weapon, type, color to the figure if one was not present.

I have a complete and working (electronics too) X-Wing fighter incoming today. Also I bought a Tie Fighter in the same shape last night. I'll post pics when it gets here.

nice pickups, is one of those c3pos the alternate head sculpt takara version? It may just be my eyes and the reflection of the head on the silverfish one, but his face is hard to see.

Yeah, if you are talking a custom cantina throw some pics down in the diorama section or customizing section.

Hello... I don't know about the C-3PO, he came in a small lot with the R5-D4, and a really waxy looking Greedo that I did not photograph... I can get you a better pic later...

As far as the Cantina goes, its my Kenner one... Thanks!

check the coo marking. takara is japan. I doubt he is since he came in a group lot. many know he is fairly rare and since there were only 3 takara japan coo figures he is on the expensive side. Only vader, stormtrooper, and c3po have japan coo figures.

Hey Bryan,

I checked both C-3PO's and they are both MIHK... The Gold one did look a little weird to me at first, but he has a 3 line Coo with MIHK on it, so you were right on about him coming in the lot. Thanks man!

Hey Broke,

Here are the pics of my Cantina...

I thought the 4 armed B.S.G. Alien would make a good bartender with all those arms, lol... Hope you like the pics man, thanks!

I bought that cantina years ago at an antique type shop that had toys and games... It had come in with a collection that was in a shed or something, and it was totally covered in bugs and dirt and who knows what else, but my wife and I felt bad for it so we bought it and cleaned it up...

Since I never had one when I was little it was not something that we were looking for... but my Wife loves it, and I really do enjoy it too... Its a great playset, and fun to set figures up in too...

Do you make customs?  I see an alien in there that appears to have vintage style articulation but was never made during vintage days, just curious on him.



I have a ton of custom figures I made way back when, but they have all been stored in my attic for going on about 10 years now. I am sure many need touchups and some love. I may try to dig them out one of these days.

Hey Bryan,

You should definitely rescue those figs from the attic man, I know I would love to see pics...

Also, the figure in the picture is a mid to late 90's release, maybe a cinema 3-pack?

I don't know for sure, but I always see him on eBay on the cheaps, and I love him... I hate mixing figures, and dont really care for modern, but some of those mid 90's figures are wonderful because they fit in okay with the Kenner figures...

I am a big fan of continuity, and the simple articulation and paint apps is perfect for mixing into the vintage line without wrecking the look...

By the way, if I could make customs like that I would quit my day job, lol!
