JACKOFTRADZE'S COLLECTION
« on: April 9, 2008, 01:28 AM »
Greetings Guys and Gals of the Galaxy!

I finally took some photos of my collection. While the majority of my collection is stored in very large vehicle bins, 5 figure cases and some vehicles not even opened yet due to space constraints, I managed to display a nice chunk of it.  My collection is quite large but the space issue takes away the real glory of it. I am looking forward to moving late this year so I can have my dream space to display my empire!

I took distance shots, close ups and even the stored stuff photos to give you a sense of scale.

Enjoy the pics!



The Displayed stuff. (The close up shots are after stored stuff images.)















Stored stuff + close ups to see how much crap is in there!

A couple of notes on my collection:

- I phased out 90% all old sculpts of core characters to have the best representation possible. I have very few POTF2 left as they are just too dated. Only some Aliens remain. I cannot wait to get rid of them when new sculpts are made.

- I stream lined my Troop building to mainly Movie based Clones/Troopers. Some "realistic" EU Clones will make the cut but they have to really fit. I do not want a Skittle army but only core troops that compliment my collection.

- All of my Clone/Stormie Troops have to be SA. I phased out all non SA clones in favor of better SA ones. You will find no AT-TE Gunners, Quick Draws or static 3-packers in my collection. They were dishonorably discharged from my collection!

Wow!  Very impressive collection.  Nice to see someone using Utarama display stands...you don't see too many of those anymore and I always liked them.

Is that a vintage droid factory on your customs workshop?
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Thanks! Ultramas are great. I need to order more if they are still in business.

Yes, that a heavily modified droid factory for my customs backdrop.
