Thanks!  Maybe I can actually get them on display by the next time you roll around for a visit...

Nice.  I really love the look of the vintage stuff.  So cool.

Do you have an idea for displaying them?  Pair them up with their larger GG mates?

I have a 12' by 8' wall of Peg Board in the new man cave.  Top row will be all the GG Jumbo figures (I can fit 3 to a peg, so probably room for about 30 of them).  Below that I will have about 4 rows of vintage, and below that I will have 3 rows of white banker boxes.  The banker boxes are something of an eye sore, but I'm not sure what else I would store down that low anyway.  Should be pretty cool whenever I can get around to building it!

Those SW cards look pretty amazing, especially with those clear bubbles.  Congrats on the haul!  It sounds like the live auction is something you'll never forget.  8)

Those bubbles are so clear! I would have never though of cutting those ups off like that when I was a kid. Wow!

Thanks guys.  These cost a pretty penny, but I'm still really happy with the purchase a few weeks later, so that's a sign of money well spent.  I referenced a Luke X-Wing that I picked up earlier for $40, so here he is too...

Been a long time since I've had an update here, but wanted to share my new wall o' vintage.  I've been working on this for a long, long time, so feels great to have it just about wrapped up.  I still have a few gaps to fill on card variations, but am absolutely loving this.

Thanks!  All originals so far, but I think I'm going to use a repro guy for the few I'm missing (Brown Hair Luke, Yakface, POTF Stormtrooper, Vinyl Jawa).  My neighbor mentioned some cool IKEA backlights I could install behind them for fairly cheap, so might try that out in a few weeks.
