Wow Jesse, your collection looks amazing.  Thanks for sharing.  I'm really impressed with how you were able to set up such a large collection and still keep it looking neat and spaced out.  Nothing looks "crowded", which I think is a problem a lot of us struggle with after collecting this stuff for so long.  I really like that trapezoidal glass case, that would be nice to have and seems to work well with the various lines you have set up in there.  I also like the way you organized/set up things in each area of your collection room - nice work.  You've given me a lot of neat ideas if I can ever get some nicer display cases like many of you have here.  Outstanding collection, and the Vader focus is just so impressive.  I have to go look through all those pictures again :).

Thanks for the comments guys.  :)

I didn't notice it in there anywhere but do you have the 2nd Unleashed Vader (the one with the removeable helmet)?

Nope, not yet.  It'll be a big day when I finally decide to pull the trigger on one.

BTW, your green and white POTJ Astromech is backwards. :P

Well, ****, I didn't even realize that.  Oops.  :-[  ;)

I'm really impressed with how you were able to set up such a large collection and still keep it looking neat and spaced out.

That's definitely the challenge, even with such a nice sized room that I'm fortunate to have.

I really like that trapezoidal glass case, that would be nice to have and seems to work well with the various lines you have set up in there.

I love the glass shelves!  It's great for letting light shine through and allowing you to see more compared to an opaque shelf.  My mother-in-law sold her gift shop a year ago and gave me that shelf.  It really fits well in the room.

Very impressive Jesse.  I know what a labor of love it can be to set up a collection room.  I cannot wait until I'm "finished".   :D

Nope.  I've got a 2nd one coming in the mail as we speak so I can finally have a loose one.  :P

Hah, no much!

Jesse, are these palmtalkers? 

Yup, they sure are.  Those are the one released during ROTS, some day I'd like to track down the others that were only released in Japan during the POTJ line.

Yeah, pretty much one of the coolest collections/setups I've ever seen. Love the Micro Machines/Action Fleet, that's a nice blast from the past.

I've been wanting to take individual shots of my Vader collection for a long time and have recently started working on it.  I been trying to put together a light box to do this, but I'm still not that happy with it yet.  Anyway, this is a quick look at my first attempts.

I thought I'd start with something a little different - my Miniatures, MicroMachines and other little pieces.



SW Miniatures - Rebel Storm #22 - Sith Lord




SW Miniatures - Rebel Storm #21 - Dark Jedi




SW Miniatures - Champions of the Force #49 - Champion of the Sith




SW Miniatures - Battle of Hoth set #12 - Imperial Commander




SW Miniatures - Revenge of the Sith #58 - Darth Vader




SW Miniatures - Knights of the Old Republic #33 - Scourge of the Jedi




MicroMachines - from Boba Fett playset




MicroMachines - from Classic Characters #1 figure 9-pack




MicroMachines - from Classic Characters #2 figure 9-pack




MicroMachines - from Imperial Forces 1st edition




MicroMachines - from Shadows of the Empire I set




MicroMachines - from Planet Dagobah playset




Action Fleet - from Death Star Escape Battle Pack #14




Action Fleet - from Droid Escape Battle Pack #7




Action Fleet - from Galactic Empire Battle Pack #2




Disney Mini Figure




Foreign Mini Figure - can't remember background.




Foreign Mini Figure - can't remember background?  Jaxx, can you help me out?




Mexican 'Bimbo Bread' pewter




Japanese mini super deformed figure




Foreign mini figure - unsure of background.




Kinder Surprise Hipperium (Hippo) Dark Laser

Here's a few more as my tinkering continues tonight...



Galactic Heroes - 2-pack with Obi-Wan - 2005




Galactic Heroes - 2-pack with Palpatine - 2006 (ROTS - green & red buttons, silver shoulders)




Galactic Heroes - Vader's Bounty Hunters - 2006 (blue & red buttons)




Galactic Heroes - Death Star Escape - 2006 (blue & red buttons, silver chestplate)




Galactic Heroes - 2-Pack with Bespin Leia - 2007




Galactic Heroes - 2-Pack with Jedi Luke - 2007




Galactic Heroes - Battle of Hoth - 2007 (snowy boots)




Galactic Heroes - "Bronzed" version :o) - 2008
   As you might guess, there's a story behind this one.  A couple of months ago, I e-mailed a link to my wife suggesting a cool idea for my birthday - the $18,000 Bronze Lawrence Noble Vader statue.  So she bought a GH 2-pack, painted it with bronze paint and gave it to me for my birthday.  She was quite proud of herself. :D  (She also gave me the Millennium Falcon, so she made up for it ;)).




Japanese Keychain




Transformer pack-in figures




Unleashed Battle Packs - Imperial Invasion (Battle of Hoth) 4-pack




Unleashed Battle Packs - Commanders (Attack on Tantive IV) 4-pack & Single

Carded




Action Masters



There are a few items that I am unsure of their background:



I believe this was a Kellogg's cereal toy.  There is a picture of Anakin Skywalker inside the toy and it is dated 2002.




I thought this was released during the Special Edition theatrical releases, perhaps Pizza Hut.  It has a 1995 date on the bottom (but the movies hit the screens in 1997).




This may have been a European released toy since it has a London marking on it, dated 2002.  It also has Nestle on it so perhaps it was some sort of food premium?




This one is dated 1997, but I have no other knowledge of it.




This one has me completely stumped.  No markings whatsoever.


Anyway, back to what I do know...



DeAgostini Figure




Rawcliffe Pewter




Pewter Keychain




Gold Keychain - exclusive to Avon




Disney PVC figure (1990)




Chess piece




Chess piece - Germany




Bootleg 2" deformed figure




Keychain Head (the head folds open)




Candy Head - 2007

McDonald's Clone Wars toy - Phillipines




good ol' Pez dispenser




Medicom Kubrick - ANH pose




Medicom Kubrick - ESB pose




Medicom Kubrick - ROTJ pose




Pepsi Bottlecap - Head only

Pepsi Bottlecap - Bust & arms

Bootleg Bear Keychain




Cake Topper
