Well, it appears that I seem to do this once a year, so I wanted to keep up with tradition.
However, this time, I've tried to mix things up a bit. I constructed a lightbox in order to showcase some pieces a little more. That and to reduce the glare and flash from glass and acrylic. Besides, it was just fun to do.
I have some more pics to upload later, but I need to get better pics of a few very special pieces. So keep checking back for more goodies!
I also, would be remiss if I didn't thank some people. Without the help and support of these fine people, my collection wouldn't be anything like it is today, you all know who you are. I do need to give mention to some very special people. Broc, Steve, Shawn and Joe. You guys have always been there for me to offer support, guidance and help with anything that I needed. I honestly, cannot thank you enough!
So without further adieu....
First up is the one piece that kicked it all off, my childhood Rebel Commando. He went on many adventures with me when I was a kid and he was the figure that kicked off this entire hobby for me.

Internal Kenner Weapons transparency -
This is a really cool item. It's hand drawn with a marker, on a transparency, and it's the outlines for a lot of the weapons from the 65 era Jedi figures. I only took a photo of the Rebel Commando rifle, but it has a Luke Jedi blaster, Ewok weapons, ERG Staff, and a real early Bib Fortuna staff that looks like a shepherd's crook. We think it was used for some sort of internal presentation at Kenner.
