Well all I have to say is "All you JD morons are a dime a dozen and you're all belligerent as hell."

Since we're deriving topics from that other site, thought I'd throw one of their quotes out there.

You mean like right here?

Oh sure, I bring it to your attention and 5 minutes later there's a whole section for it. Next you're going to tell me you've been working on that for years and I just didn't notice it.

Like I am that unobservant or something.  Right. ;D

JD should have a dedicated page outside of the forums for collection pictures and they should update daily like Rebelscum. That would be wonderful.

We already have a section set up for it outside of the forums:  http://www.jedidefender.com/collections.php


Like Dave said, we have already tried that...

If any of you guys want to see your collections displayed on our front page, just pm or email me and let me know where to find some pics (or email them to me) and I will be more than happy to post them. We tried to do this a while back and had no takers... maybe now is a better time to try?

It's just hard to update it when no one sends us their pictures...  :-X

Take the pictures from the forum section and post a call-out for collection pics! I'm sure you'll get some response.

Here's my Collection...I've sold everything I have to buy bottles of JD and traded the rest for SFG's old stuff.  It was a good deal



You mean you didn't send the figures to Bilbo?!?

I've posted call-outs for collection pics more times than I care to remember. And I'm not about to start crawling through the forum section and grabbing people's pics... if you want your collection hosted and showcased here on our site, just send me an email or pm with a link to where I can grab your pics. That's it. Nothing more. I'll do the rest. Tried it tons of times... never a response.

I think that the reason most of the major collectors don't contribute to these sorts of things is because they don't want to deal with the attention.  I mean, I know a lot of guys who won't even acknowledge that certain pieces are in their collections.  They don't want to deal with all the annoying questions and offers to buy their stuff.  So they just share within their little circle.  Then there's the "I can't believe you paid $1000 for a piece of plastic" crowd they'd have to hear from.  So why go through the trouble of taking the photographs when the only people who will appreciate them don't stray from the RS Vintage forums?

I've considered sending in photos myself, but always end up thinking "Do I want everyone who goes to RS to know I have all this expensive stuff in my house?"  And I always come to the same conclusion.

That's a great point.

I personally have probably less than 20 vintage figures in my collection, and they're all from when I was a kid. They're played with, loose and worn. I plan on putting them in some sort of shadow box and hanging them on the wall, but that's something that would only be special or interesting to me and those who know me well.

My modern collection is pretty much complete. There's a handful of things I don't have, like force flippers and Toyfair Vader, but I do have a very comprehensive loose collection. Sure I have a few odds and ends that will remain packaged, but the majority is loose.

When I submit pics of my collection, I'll include the things that I feel the community here would like to see. And I won't submit until I have things assembled in such a way that (hopefully) people will enjoy seeing.

I had the same thing happen a few years ago when I posted pics on that other site.  People asking for certain figs.  I even had this one person who was really belligerent insisting I sell him (at a cheaper price) a bunch of figs because I hoarded them.  He sent about 6 really nasty and sometimes threatening emails.

I seem to recall some *******-ishness that took place over army builder pictures.  Rob, if you read this did you ever catch any **** privately from people?  I'm an army builder and even I wanna send Rob a scathing PM.   :P
