Dale, what is that ship in the picture?  Just an old toy, or is it a bootleg as well?

Though not pictured it's from the 2nd Series of Model Trem:

There was a great bootleg/prototype swap meet going on almost every night at the Wilshire Grand during C4.  It was a level of collecting debauchery that I had never experienced before.

Great bootlegs!  That Han Hoth is fantastic. 

But of course, those Vaders are the best, in my book.  ;D  I love the top left one with the sword.  ;)

The Mexican one with the saber is quite unique and the saberless one looks amazingly accurate.  8) 8)

Indeed, great meeting everyone there. I think I made it out to 3 nights of the shing ding. I remember the event at C3 & this is one heck of an event, great stuff.  8)

I mentioned this in the new acquisitions thread, but I thought I'd post this here too.

Did you pick those up from Doug over at RS?  Those are some really, really nice boots.

I grabbed a couple from him, both Han Solo.  Below is the newest one I got.

I picked up the two Hoth Han's from him and thought about the pink/gray version of the original Han, but decided it was too rich for my blood.  I do already have one though.  Eventually I'll get some pics up of my three boots and the rest of my collection, I just need to get a working digital camera and new software on the computer.
