What would you think between the classic and Ep. III Darth Vader versions? Which looks better, which is your favorite and why? I'm interested, maybe in the future I'll try buying one (maybe winning the lottery :P)

I don't really like the Silver pewter Vader. It looks a bit strange. But I think everything it's about fashion and repaints...

I too have a great deal with an online shop: Toy Palace. Marco Russe has great offers for me and I won't pass. I already have on pre-order the Droids set and Leia.

At home I already got: ROTS Vader, Scout Trooper, Sandtrooper and Snowtrooper. This week I'm expecting the Koto Stormie to arrive as well. I only collect OT imperials and Droids, I'm passing the Jedi and even clones, since I'm not a big fan of PT. Leia is an exception.  ;)

BTW here is my Kotobukiya collection, or check out my signature or you can find it on this thread

Ok, here is what my current collection of Koto's looks like. I tend to stick to Clones/Troopers and Sith (and yes, Boba Fett is technically a clone isn't he ? lol):

I just received my Kotobukiya Stormtrooper. It is awsome, I didn't think I'd like it since it has a strange pose. But it looks pretty cool among the other troopers.

HELP: Is there anyone who can tell me about the arm pegs the stormie has? I was used to the rectangular pegs that fit into the statue's body, but the stormie has a different type of pegs (they are 2 like some arrows that open up and fit in the hole). Deos anyone have the same? Was this because it was released in 2003 and the otherKotos like Scout, Snowtrooper etc are newer versions?

Nice pics, man i'm kicking myself for not picking up the different sandtroopers when i had the chance
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

I just used my galactic rewards through MBNA to nab  a Bly. This will be my first of these, but after seeing how nice your collections look, I doubt it will be my last.

I've managed to resist picking up any of these so far but the R2 and Threepio are soooo perfect and iconic, that I can not resist. I also have a bit of a Threepio collection at home and that would make a great centerpiece.

When I eventually switch jobs, I hope they have as much shelf space for me. Otherwise, i'm going to have make some serious room for my imperial guys at home lol.  :P

The Droids set seems to be pretty big. Lack of display space is an issue for me as well. But together with the others I already got and Leia I MUST get space for... ;)
