A big Thanks & Thumbs Up to Wayne for this Prototype that has been added to my collection.

 My pleasure Dale, I am happy to hand it off to you for its next good home. Great pics by the way, my crappy camera never took any up close that good. What kind are you using as I need a new one soon.

This is the camera that I am using.

Sony Cybershot DSCP32 3.2MP Digital Camera

Nice little camera, I picked up a 64MB memory stick which give me plenty of pics. Yoy can tell by the pictures I have shadows, thats because I take the shots outside using natural light.

I'm going to get some flourescent lights to take better pics. There are a couple of good threads on RS on this.

Collection pics

Now if I could only find my camera stand!  :-\

Dale,

FYI, on some things I have researched.  Others, I ask questions to... get this party started!  That gives someone else the opportunity to give their input.  usually it's you though... Common fellas.

To be Honest I dont totally agree with that article. I was talking to a couple of the editors  of TRG about this. FS done in multi colors usually have dates on them, and those are FS' for sure. I now of a few examples that were FS but had something on a limb whether it be dates or copyrights. That article was writting awhile ago before alot of new info had come out.

Let me count the ways...

1. I don't know much, so really still reading and learning

2. Not currently focused on picking up vinty stuff for a number of reasons
a) I believe they are cheaper to buy during summer.  Example: my trilogo biker scout in bloody immaculate condition I picked up for around $26 I just saw one in worse condition go for about triple that.

b) too much modern stuff and I'm trying (desperately) to keep the cc balance on the downward swing rather than the other way around

c) I need to finish the basic, loose figure collection first before drifting into this rarified air.  

d) Wayne spoiled me :-*  For my Christmas gift he sent me a couple of vinty figs still on card (Ackbar and 8D8).  The cards were beaten and as I understood it, they were meant to be opened.  I finally relented and did just that and must say, compared to much of the crap I've picked up in lots, getting minty fresh figures is so sweet.  Clean, scuff free figures absolutely complete and with stiff joints are just so damn nice.  I'm now looking for MOSC (S being sh!tty) figures to open.  This is not to say I haven't received some really sweet pieces in lots, but what a difference and no upgrading necessary.  Mint in bubble, no card would be ideal.  Lunacy I know, but just seems like such a nice way to go, albeit more $$

So please carry on, "we" are watching you.
