Tad: I was just thinking about your Vader Focus thread and how cool you display room is as I clicked this thread.
This is totally off the planet you have even more starwars rooms! Are you really Steve Sansweet? I love the fact you have a collection house rather than a room and Love the variety - can takes me back to the 90s when I would collect just anything with Star Wars on it both vintage and modern. I would to have the space to do something as wonderful as that. It is truly fantastic!
I see you are working on a new Luke Jedi Focus? Any help you need in this area - just give a mail!
Well done mate. Fantastic.
Re This Thread:
I missed your original post so sorry for not commenting before - I vote we sticky this as I think everyone should have a chance to see this! There are many like me who can't alway be on TIG everyday and it would be a shame for this thread to be missed.
Definately a contender winner for best collection room of the year.

Wow, thanks guys!
Craig, this is actually all one room. It had a walk in close that I tore all of the closet rods and shelves out of to make more space. And the Darthenon is actually just a strange little side room that's connected to this room. Like another huge closet. It had just a big countertop when we moved in, so I removed that and put in shelving units.
It was actually one of the deciding factors of the house when we decided to buy it. As soon as I walked into it and saw the wall of built in shelves, the wheels started turning as to how I could completely make it my Star Wars room.
I actually just moved all of my statues and busts into our home office, which freed up a little space for me in this room. I better get to work on filling it up!
Thanks again guys for all the comments

I have an extra chestbox if you want to get started, lol
Do you have a loose Vader with a really weird saber tip, its almost the length of a DT, but it doesnt retract? I saw one somewhere and I thought it might have been yours
No, it's not mine. I'd be interested in it, though!
I bought a new set of shelves for the Darthenon so I could rearrange and better display my vintage Vader run. I just snapped a quick pic on my phone, but once I get everything settled, I'll take better pics.

That is a huge collection, I really love it mate. I wish I had a room for my stuff, just like you have.
Very cool life sized Teebo guard dog, was it expensive ?
