Well, shipping for that piece was $9 so the total of it was $24.  I've seen similar sculptures at my local flea market, and these have easily gone for anywhere between $50-100.  So, I think this was a steal!  I think the next one I get would be the R2-D2.  Very cool!

Your collection makes me sick to my belly with jealousy.

Nice!

Simply amazing.  Very impressive.  Keep up the good work.   :)

dustrho & DSJ would you guys have a problem with me posting my collection pics?  The only Star Wars related items are Unleashed and Kubrick's and a couple other pieces.  The majority is McFarlane and some other stuff.

Talk about a sad, sad day.  :'(

Today was the first day (of many) that I have started taking down my collection.  I've been working on it for 3 hours, packing everything away neatly in boxes.  The reason for that is that my wife & I are going to start searching for a new home soon, and I need to pack all this up before we put our townhouse on the market.  It's so depressing see bare walls with nothing up on them, and my little dioramas (nothing compared to Sandtrooper Dan's, of course) are just gone.  I'll take a picture of the room when I get it emptied out.

But, the good thing about this is that when we find a house, the basement will be 100% devoted toward my Star Wars collection.  My wife, Carrie, has agreed that I can do whatever I want to do with decorating it.  Not sure what I have in mind, but it will depend if we get a house with a finished or unfinished basement.

Ah, the joys of packing & unpacking.  :-\  Hope it all works out for the both of you. So you get the basement for your SW room & Carrie gets the rest of the house. Thats a good deal!  ;D  Best of luck.  :)

ahhh, the old "you get the basement" trick  ;D

my ex did that to me. unfortunately, the basement never got finished. which is just as well in the end, since i don't live there anymore, and the plans i had were going to be very expensive and time consuming.

i had pretty much drawn up plans and had everything ready to go to transform my basement into jabba's palace. i was going to cover the walls with plaster, and paint them a beige/tan color to match the carpeting. and then a few tables and cushions, would have been done. but, alas, it was not meant to be. good luck with your chris, i'm sure it will turn out better than mine  ;)
