Sideshow Collections
« on: August 10, 2006, 07:49 AM »
Figured I'd start off a new thread now that 4 figs are out with more coming shortly. 

Overall display with two IKEA Detolfs (painted black) flanking the TV.  Anakin's and Luke's FX lightsabers are on top


Blades lit (should have turned off my flash for a better effect)


Closeup of left Detolf


And the right


Once Han, Obi-Wan and Mace get here I'm going to have to do some rearranging.  I figure Mace and Kit together and Anakin and Obi-Wan together (brilliant huh?).  Han will go next to Luke.

No idea where I'm going to put that Jabba.

I still haven't opened mine but nice set up.  I'm trying to figure away to disply all my side show stuff right now.  I have all the 1/4's plus all 12" and then the 2 Prediters and soon Robo-cop and Ed 209.  I'm moving in October so I've sure I'll find a good way to do it then.

Great set up buddy.  I'm considering buying a couple, but I'm moving into a new place with a somewhat smaller room and I just got a 56" Samsung 1080p DLP television, so I may just not have the room to do something like this.  I would at least like to get 1 Detolf though.  Hopefully I can make it work.

Very nice. I still need to set mine up, waiting to buy a dislay case. Those look pretty good. Are the wide enough to fit Jabba?

I don't think so.  Like I said, I have no idea where Jabba's going to go.  I do have a built in shelf just to the left of the setup that I could put him on, but I would need to buy a glass case to cover him.

Got ya, i thought you meant you had no idea which side you wanted Jabba to go on. Cool thanks for the info.

Bumping up an old topic here, but I was just curious if anyone has more pics to share of their Sideshow collections.  From what I've seen before, they really seem to display nicely together as a line.  I was continuing to dig through various boxes of my collection this weekend and took a look at the few figures I have from this line (Bespin Han, Smuggler Han, and Princess Leia).  I almost wish I hadn't found them, because now I'm tempted to try to pick up more again.  They are so nice, but often a little pricey for me.  I did preorder the Lando "just in case" back when he went up, and originally had aspirations of picking up just the main characters from the OT.  I've been tempted lately to order a Stormtrooper from Sideshow, and trying to track down a Luke, Obi-Wan, and eventually Vader.  Ah, too much neat stuff these days.

Holy ****, my collection has come a long way since I started this thread.

I need to post some updated pics after I get my room reorganized.

I only own one Sideshow 12" figure, Sith Eyes Anakin.  I had half a dozen of them but sold them off, however I wish I would have kept Obi-Wan so that Anakin had someone to pose in battle with.

I'd love to see pics of what people have assembled.

Wasn't sure which thread to bump, but I just ordered Captain Antilles ($45 shipped after gift card) and a second stormtrooper ($45 shipped after rewards points)... Feels like it's been forever since a new release.
