So I'm working on a new Limelight. It'll be front/back of everything I have. As I'm putting this all together I'm struck with a bunch of seemingly unanswerable questions.

Do I group by release (SW, ESB, ROTJ, POTF) ?
Do I group by Country instead?
Do I do Bootlegs all as a single heading or put them in country?
What about Shelf Talkers, Proofs , etc.. ?
Do I put loose together and then carded?

I'm thinking of this:

KENNER

- SW
- ESB
- ROTJ
- POTF

Non US License

- Country
- Country

Bootlegs

- Country
- Country

Miscellaneous

- Items



Anybody have thoughts on this ? Am I over-thinking it?

I say do it however you think it'll look good. As long as its alphabetical, chronological, color coded and has a Mr. Spock figure in it.

Yeah that's a tough one for sure, especially with the uniqueness of your collection. I would probably do by movie releases & then bootlegs seperate. Regardless of what direction you chose, I'm sure the results will still be awesome. Looking forward to seeing it & good luck!

I'm starting to see that no matter how I do it, they'll be holes in the theory and some stuff that just doesn't fit.

I've got a Palitoy Lando Skiff with a Clipper Sticker and PBP sticker. So I have three categories it can go in, or a 4th category for "mutliples". This is turning into a chore LOL

Here's what I "think" works. It's just a little something to wet the appetite. Let me know what you think of the formatting:

Thanks for the feedback (and compliments) everyone.

I guess if everyone likes it I should run with it. I'm debating one more possibility though. I may do licensed by movie with sub categories for country.

I know I'll like whatever the end result is, but I overthink things LOL

Maybe you should do an anti-format and just put them all together in random spots?

Hi John, that works for me....!!!

Wanted to see who was paying attention Wink Wink Wink Wink


Well I've actually got everything loaded up and I'm hoping to have this ready to go tomorrow. It's really a treat for me since I have everything so tightly displayed. I rarely get to see everything. So I enjoyed getting everything photographed.

Check in tomorrow for the official limelight!

Hey John,

Thanks for sharing! Seen your url at the vintage star wars action figures Facebook group, and I think its better I view your Limelight pictures here in their Full Glory! Great Stuff :Drool:

Is your actual physical display in the same manner like your virtual presentation here? Smile
