My small army.
« on: January 12, 2006, 11:32 PM »
I know it's not much, but here's a few pics of my collection. Since I am limited on wall space and I just can't stop cracking open those packages, so 90% of it is loose...oh, I do suffer from ABS or Army Building Syndrome...

Holy moly!  That is one of the most impressive Armies I have ever seen!

I see you only have one Uncle Owen though :P

Nicely displayed and again, very Impressive :)

Well, at least I know why I can't find any Tac Ops troops in the stores....

Nice collection. Do you have any kind of count on what you have?

Meh, I've seen bigger. :P

Kidding of course. That is one hell of an impressive army. Did you used to post on RS by the name "Son of a Sith" or something like that? I think I remember seeing pics of your army a few years ago.


I too would love to hear an official count, that has got to be close to $10,000 worth of army builders. It's a good thing you have stands, I could see things getting rather annoying if someone decided to play dominoes. ;)

Nah, wasn't me, I only a few of the Tac Ops in the store, traded for 57 of them(not all from one person), bought a few online, but still have 15 more on the way from another trade. I know I pushed over the 1500 mark a few weeks ago on the Imperial Troops and more than 2700 loose figures total. I just finished building 3 more sets of shelves that I need to fill up with about 100 more figures that still need to be opened. I do have a lot of sealed/carded items, but just no wall space to display everything right now.

I was SonofaSith.

It's only money & you can't take it with you my friend. I have a 3 year old son & honestly he just enjoys looking at them in total amazement, probably thinking to himself that one day when they are all his, he can play dominoes with them. My daughter on the other hand could care less, but she makes sure to tell her friends that "My Dad has more toys than I do".

So this is your army. :o

I incorrectly identified this at RS as Darth_Ball's. :-[

Impressive. Most Impressive.

No problem, it happens all the time, someone sent me link to that one and a few others that posted pics of my collection on a couple of other forums.

The reaction varies from anger to amazement, I especially enjoy the angry posts. I have been singled out as the main reason why people in 49 of the 50 States couldn't find a Tactical Ops Trooper. The best part of it all is that I traded mostly McFarlane Sportspick chase pieces for a ton of Army Builder figures last year. Those McFarlane collectors are pretty dedicated to completing those sets with the variants and seem to have easier time finding Star Wars than I do.

Thanks for the compliments on the collection.... ;D

I'm in awe of your collection.  My wife would kill me.  However, I know if things get bad I can always show her your collection and say what I could be like  ;)

Thanks for sharing these!!
