Well... it's been a long time since I've done an official limelight. So long that I thought I would just start a new thread, since it's basically a completely new set up.
As some of you know I had a small fiasco with the collection room earlier this year. So most of this stuff has been in storage patiently waiting until I could finally get things sorted out. So finally with less than a week to go in the year, I got the RC's up and displayed again. It's been a long road and I'm still no where near done, but this feels so good that I just had to share with you all. BTW, what do you think of the paint color?
First up is the overall shot of the RC display. Left side is the Kenner case, middle is pre-production and the right is the foreign side of things.
Here is the top shelf of the Kenner side:
From Right to Left: 65A, 65B, 65B w/coin offer sticker
From Right to Left: 65C, 65C w/coin offer sticker, 77A w/coin offer sticker, 77A
From Right to Left: 79B, three Polish Unarticulated bootlegs, ROTJ multi-pack, 79B w/coin offer sticker
Fourth shelf is where my budding Endor Forest Ranger focus lives:
From Right to Left: MIB Tri-Logo, Loose Kenner, Loose No COO, MIB Canadian. The loose RC's are all the various COO's.
Next up is the Foreign side of the display.

Second shelf. I call this the import shelf:

Next is the modern pre-production side of the focus. I know, I know, it's modern, but I really feel this helps break things up a bit. Plus it's always fun to get pre-production items. Whether that's vintage or modern.
From Left to Right: Saga Endor Rebel
Soldier mock up on Captain Typho card, Unused Endor Forest Ranger Tri-Logo cardback w/hanger tag still attached, Endor Forest Ranger first shot without peg holes or dates molded in non-production colors

Lastly is a couple of pieces that are absolutely irreplaceable. These are some custom art pieces that I've had done by some very dear friends.
On top is a gift from Joe_O this is an original piece of art from Jeff (jpc_art) on RS. On the bottom is the original pencil sketch done by our very own Hyver.
On top is a custom airbrushed painting done by Josh_T. On the bottom is the plaque I won for the tattoo competition at C5, signed by the tattoo artist.
I hope you all enjoyed my little limelight. I have more stuff to come as soon as the room gets more complete.
