AustinPOTF's modest collection...
« on: July 22, 2004, 12:18 AM »
I got started late, around June '99 right after EP1 came out. What began as a trip to TRU to ONLY purchase the Darth Maul and Darth Sidious 3 3/4" figures turned into, well, you know how it goes.  :-[

My five month-old loves to stare at all of the figures lined up in perfect rows. All of the bright colors are eye candy to him and he really enjoys hanging out in Dad's toy room. I honestly can't wait until he's old enough to appreciate what I've assembled. Don't worry, you militant openers, he's got plenty of seconds to play with when the time comes.  ;)

Thanks, OCB. I just love staring at the carded product. At the same time, I do enjoy setting up the dioramas with the openers.

yeah, that's a great collection. must have taken a while to get every figure  as nice and straight as you did, especially with leaving all the space in between the figures. what are you using to hold your carded figures to the wall? nails? thumb tacks?

The figures are held by those clear, plastic pushpins. I eyeball everything I hang. Once you get a couple up and straight the rest are easy. I knock 'em out like laying tiles and if someone is handing them to me in an assembly line fashion, I can average one figure every 15 seconds or so. The fun of putting them up is short lived.
