Oops, give me a minute, I'll try and fix it.

EDIT:  OK, I'll try and get the pics by morning.   :(

For my most recent pics, see this post here. (October 2008)






Well, even though my Star Wars room is never truly done, this is how it looks today.  We bought a house last year, and it's so great to finally have a home for everything.  But I do need to knock out a wall to the next room - I'm already out of space and still have my Micromachines boxed up.  I've just got to convince the wifey that it's a good idea - how long do you think that will take?   :)

This is actually the hallway outside my room, it just keeps growing!



Lots of glare in this pic, but it gives you an idea of the hallway from the other angle:



And a closeup of some of my favourite deluxe figs:



One of favourite sections, my Darth Vader shrine:



My one and only carded vintage figure, hopefully will be joined by more in the future:



These are some of my favourites, the Unleashed:



The Power of the Jedi line has always been my favourite, because of items like the 25th Anniversary packs:



Here's a shot of my line-up of vintage baddies and my favourite vehicle, the AT-AT:



And at another angle you can see some of other vintage stuff:



7 down, 5 to go, still working on completing my VOTC collection:



And here's the heart of my collection, about 300 modern figs here, 3 or 4 figures deep on pegboard.  This way I can rotate which figs I actually display.  Someday I'll have enough wallspace to show them all at once!



Of course, I had to get a few doubles to open:



Love that Wampa!



And my sole 12" figure, Han with his Tauntaun, a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law a couple of years ago.  And they say the in-laws are all bad...  ;)



And as a sidenote, I'm a big Bruin fan:



Hope you enjoyed.  I just received my chrome GG Vader and Jango busts, which will need a home in there somewhere:

Additions as of Jan 2, 2005:

Time to add my recent acquisitions! 

My Christmas gift to myself:  2 Stormtrooper Mini-Busts, now comfortably with the Vader and Jango chrome busts and Luke Stormtrooper:



I've got a couple Bust-Ups, including Chewie and Han (thanx to Jeff  :)) and both Leias (thanx to freebies from GG with my Stormie busts).  Now that I've got this many, I may be forced (ouch, my rubber arm  ;)) into completing this wave, and certainly the next.



I also acquired my second unique Darth Vader bust.  I've come across both of these versions on eBay, and just can't pass up on these neat looking items - besides, they light up!  This meant I had to rearrange my Darth Vader shrine, but they look nice next to the Technic Lego Darth Vader:



I also picked up the Darth Vader Voice Changer and Deluxe Lightsaber (not shown) - hopefully next Halloween I'll be making an appearance as the Lord of the Sith.  I also picked up some ceramic mugs:



And finally, my daughter Emily posed in my SW room.  She loves to look around with me and is (usually) quite careful.  Emily = next generation Star Wars fan.  Her favourite?  Well, Princess Leia and Queen Amidala, of course!   :)

January 21 Mini-Update:

I've added Mace Windu and Count Dooku, I must find Vader!

Kinder Surprise Star Wars Hippos:



They are named as follows:
Leia - Prinzessin Hippeia
Luke - Luke Eiwalker
Chewie - Aubacca
Han - Happy Han
Jango -  Jango Jet  (I'm not sure why they chose Jango over Boba, he's the only non-OT figure)
C-3PO - H-IPO
Vader - Dark Laser
Obi-Wan - Obi-Wan Hippobi
R2-D2 - Erzwo Hippo
Yoda - Hippoda

Wow.  :o

I don't know what else to say...

The dining room is amazing.  And the detail in the sculpture in the room with Han & Leia - it really makes your display shine.  Those VOTC stormtroopers are really at home in a display like this!

Nice low #'s on your Jango and Vader BTW.

Yeah, I was pretty happy with those #'s.  But it seems odd how people seem to be getting #'s that are all over the spectrum.  Getting a low # doesn't really seem to indicate at what time during the release I actually got it.  Strange.

Actually, there are 5 different poses, but I wasn't impressed with the 5th one so I just display the 4. So I still have 2 "extra" stormtroopers in my closet, 'cause I bought 6 total.

Buying a few a time would be the smart way to go, especially after seeing what I paid for shipping.  SWS.com charged me 23.95 US, then FedEx charged me $41.57 CDN  (about $32 US) for brokerage fees (duty and garbage).  At least buying a few at a time might make it seem worth the expense - buying across the border is tough on my Canadian wallet!   :-\

If you ever wanna get rid of one of those stormies for say...real real cheap or even free, put me on the list.

Kevin

Oh, yeah, me too!   :D

That is an absolutely awesome collection!  My Vader and Jango busts arrived the other day, and I've totally fallen in love with these things.  They're so detailed and surprisingly heavy.  I have to say though that I'm definitely a bigger fan of the busts that have arms included, they add so much to the "drama" of the poses.  My Vader is # 1041 and Jango is # 0609.



Those Stormtroopers look great.  4 different poses, eh?  Hmmm...

Those are incredible.  The Snowtrooper is my favourite, but the Death Star Gunner and Ackbar are really good too.   8)

Alas, I'll never be able to get this because MR can't ship replica weapons to Canada.  It's a real shame, because it looks like a beauty.   You must be pretty proud of that piece of art, especially with that dazzling mirror base!

It's so much fun to see how these projects come together!  I recently finished my Star Wars room, which took me a few months to do.  I don't have nearly enough room (but do we ever?), but overall I'm pretty pleased with it.  Funny thing is though, that you're never really done because there's always new acquisitions to add!  That being said, it sure feels good when you finally release your toys from their "cardboard prisons" after having them stored for so many years.   Keep up the great work and continue to show us the changes you may make!

Sounds like a neat idea, I'm sure there would be some surprising "upsets" along the way.  :)

Bah, we've had snow for 3 weeks.  We had one hell of a start to winter, got at least 6 inches the 1st day, and it's still here.  It melts just enough during the nicer days, but when it freezes in the evening look out!  Me no likey sliding through intersections!  I ordered a set of Michelin X-Ice's for the car - that should improve things dramatically.  I hope.   :-\

Obviously Kubricks are grabbing a lot of people's attention today!  I've played with the idea of getting into these, I've never even seen one with my own eyes.   Hmmm...

Heh... 

I can get you started on that path too, just like I did with the Bust-Ups!  Just send a PM if you are interested... ;)

Oh yeah, and welcome to JD.com too! 

Jeff


I'll keep it in mind - I'm gonna need a 2nd job if I keep this up!   ;D
