I'm a long-time lurker that recently joined the forum.  I have Star Wars vintage collectibles spread across the home and garage.  I thought I'd share a pic of my loose figure collection (with variants).  I recently bought another case but haven't moved into it yet.

Nice setup. Displaying them like this takes a lot of wall room but the case is thin to the wall so way less bulky than an average display case. This also makes a very clean looking display with the figures in individual boxes (a few have to share I see but not many). I didn't count but it looks like a full set are any missing?

Thanks to all for the welcome and positive feedback.

Trappedtexan - This is the complete action figure collection plus a few extras (such as the Takara wind-up R2-D2 and Blue Snaggletooth).  The POTF figures all have their coins as well.

I'm sure there are different perspectives on what constitutes a complete action figure collection.  I have other figures that weren't on card backs, such as the Dianoga, Salacious Crumb, and Max Rebo band, that I don't consider part of the "carded action figure" collection.  I also don't display the Wampa, Probot, Jabba, etc. in this collection (even though I have them displayed with some of the different playsets).

How did you make the background? On further looks I can see SW ships dotted about on what looks like a silver surface.

Artoo_Detour - The background is comprised of a poster-board attached to a wood backing with a couple of stickers on it. I liked the contrast between the figures and the speckled grey backing and thought (at the time) the stickers spruced it up a little (it's been a while).

Great setup!

I'm not a variant guy myself, but it's always cool to see the major ones side by side. Happy Lando/Sad Lando is a great example!

Welcome to TIG as well!
