I mean all vintage figures, ships, blasters, etc? Is there anyone here who has that? I think I want to do this. I'm currently in the process of working on a movie theater inside my house. I'm going to stock it wall to wall. It will likely take years and it's a lofty goal but I think I want to try.

But I also would like to see the collection of anyone who has done it so I can see how they are displaying. My initial thought is a rail of shelving in multiple tiers across the top of the room. Not including the screen wall of course.

Search for rancho obi wan or steve sansweet. Also Gus lopez if you can find his old pics with the setup he had in his house. Those two have close to everything I think. If your just talking regular kenner line, I think most here probably have at least the vintage figure set but not sure how many expanded to get playsets and vehicles. I know I have boxes of playsets and vehicles in my attic as I don't have the space (nor desire really) to display them out. I used to want to set up a big display of all of my stuff, but now days I only display what I really like.

That sounds like a good long-term achievable goal, and hats off you realise it will take years - this will give you plenty of pleasure hunting stuff down and watching the collection grow cheers

You also have plenty of foreign to Kenner licenses to choose from to keep the collection varied if you wish.

For display ideas a look through the limelight sections here will show some cool collections. Capetown and DarthStanley both specialised in vehicles/playsets but maybe not so much loose figures. Jawa57 also has a lot of boxed stuff. Bryan mentioned some supercollectors above who mostly have just about a bit of everything.

I think you'll get a larger debate on what constitutes "everything". Let the variant guys chime in on that one............ lol

Haha. True. I just meant all the Kenner stuff from New hope to Jedi. Figures to ships to carrying cases etc. The variants are just too confusing for me right now.

I'd say that there is probably a decent amount of folks that have a full set of figures and ships
