How big is the room that this is all in?

I'm rounding to the nearest foot here, but it's about 13' x 18' with 12' ceilings.



Thanks everyone else for the compliments!   :)

Now that I've actually seen every picture, I salute you sir, and I have to tell you, I am very envious of your collection.

Well done.

Kevin
The picture kept, will remind me...

Thanks Kevin!

Since there may be a few folks dropping in from Snowtroopers - I thought I'd add that I do have some Snowtroopers in there - but I'm holding out for the rumored VTSC version before I stock up.

Also, it does snow in Texas - but only once or twice a year if we're lucky :)

Simply amazing man I commented on a thread over at snowtroopers actually on how I like the way you hung the rocks up with the ships I think that was just brilliant.

Didn't you guys get smacked with s snow storm last year? I think at least accross north Texas got it anyways.

Again nice collection !!!

Thanks!

The asteroids actually came from a commercial shoot I worked back when OTC was hitting stores for the Millenium Falcon - after they were done with the set they filled a trash bag up for a buddy and me with all of them.  I didn't even have to tie them up, they already had fishing line on them. :)

The snow pretty much missed us in Dallas last year - Oklahoma got it pretty good.

The picture there was from 3 years ago - my first year in Texas.  Hopefully we'll get some more this year.

They're painted styrofoam chunks.  They're actually pretty crappy if you look at them up close - I just used them instead of making my own because of where they came from.

Dude I hope you have insurace on this stuff. I'd hate to see something happen to your collection and not have any way to replace it.

BTW no wonder I can't find stuff in the stores. You have it all!  ;)

It's insured as part of my personal property insurance - I've got a flat value of insurance that supposedly covers everything inside my home.

UPDATE:  03/11/07 - all new photos in the first post of the thread.  Some new figures, lots of new carded Saga, and I moved the UCS Legos to the top shelf of the one wall to create a new area for Gentle Giant busts.  A handful of vehicles had to go into the closet to make that happen.

What a great update Rob - truly enjoyable to look through.  I must say the black shelves against the white walls add a nice "edge" to the presentation.
