Where do you get cases for these things ???  I'm wanting to display Ben and Vader in the classic duel, so that would need one huge chunk of glass/plastic.

Jared: Mine is 18x18x24 in case you decide to get one. :)

Morbug: I get mine from Cases for Collectibles. BDW turned me on to them a few years ago, and I've been getting them there ever since. :)

Hi, I own the Luke statue, hping to add the Han statue soon. Not bothering with any of the others yet although I definately want Greivous.

I intend on using the sideshow Darth Vader as a base Idea to customising a 1/4 scale screamin model (cloth capes etc).
I picked up a lightsaber keyring recently off ebay which basiclly looks alike a mini force fx saber when lit which I intend on using with it. I'll post some pics most likely in a few weeks once its done, if anyones interested in seeing what these 1/4 sabers look like let me know and I'll post some pics.

I wasn't real big on the Mouse Droid, maybe if they had made it a remote control version that would have done it for me, so I settled for the regular version.  This is one damn fine statue.

I still think they should have made a lightup Interrogation Droid to go with this Vader and need to look into a display case myself.  I would like to get a glass case and etch a nice big Imperial Logo into the top of it.

Interesting Kirk, that looks like the perfect scale. Who's the keyring made by?

Looks like it might be one of the Tomy sabers you could get from gatcha machines and such.

On second thought, it looks a bit better than them, I think they just had an LED light at the base...

I received noticed from Sideshow that my Obi-Wan will be shipping in 20 to 25 days - man, I can't wait.  The Vader looks so sweet displayed in my living room, but it'll be even better when he has Obi-Wan to duel with.

Yeah, I'll be thrilled to get him as well (got the same mail as you this afternoon). They'll truly be the collection centerpiece.

The releases are really moving at full clip now. I'm looking forward to a new announcement soon. The 12" line has really taken focus away from these, unfortunately.
