What a great looking piece - I think the scowl on his face is perfect!  And I can see why the articulation sold you, it's very impressive.

I'd say you got a good deal.  :)

That's pretty cool and not a bad price either.

What are you going to sell in your shop?

Various sorts of Model kits such as SW ships, Koto kits, Airoplanes, Tanks, Cars etc.
Model Railway trains etc.
And the things I have a great interest in such as the Gentle Giant and Sideshow stuff, Marvel, SW etc.
Basiclly a Models and Collectibles shop, were just waiting for the all long boring stuff with the lease etc for the property.
I've just bought a full set of Boba Fett Armour and a jump suit etc just got to wait for it to get built and shipped now. Looking out for a mannequin now to display it on and then thats me finished with the display pieces.
Buying stuff at wholesale prices should help me with my personal collection anyay ;D

Yoda arrived today, will get some pics taken and posted in the morning once my camera has charged up.
Its quite impressive but for some reason imo his head seems to large...

Edit: My apologies for the delay with the photos I will post them tommorow along with pics of my almost complete 1:1 scale Boba Fett Statue, it just needs boots, Jetpack and Gauntlets.
The gauntlets are on there way and the Jetpack has been scratch built using templates I found on the net using carboard and bottles which were then covered in paper and pva glue. It has even suprised me at how well its turned out it just needs another layer of paper and glue to make it a bit more solid and then it needs painting.
The gauntlets have been built for me and are on there way to me and hopefully will be here for Tuesday.
I've found a pair of boots just need to buy them on Tuesday.

Thanks Kevin.

Heres those pics, sorry for the wait guys but I've been busy decorating the shop etc. I havent posted too many because you've seen pretty much what it looks for the above pics although I personally think this one has a much better  more realistic looking paint job. I've also built him a new stand so the cardboardbox has now gone lol.




Heres a WIP fett pic




And heres a little pic of them both in the shop window:

They'll both be getting turned around once the shop is opened there just facing outside to attract a bit of attention until we do open.

The shops now finished just awaiting stock deliveries and the sign to be made.

Heres a pic of the sign I designed it myself its going to be 12ftx4ft so should look pretty impressive obviously its been downsized alot which is why some parts of it look blurred etc:

Its called Generation X if you hadnt guessed lol
