Awesome collection.  I couldn't get the video to work (and I have windows media player) but the pictures worked just fine.  Two blue snaggletooths!!??  WOW!!  You have a lot of vintage figures, were they originally yours?  
I noticed in you sig. note, you like C-10 cards.  I was wondering if you've ever forfeited the "perfect" card for one that might have a wrinkle on the back or a small bend in the corner because the figure inside the bubble is turned awkward or their is obviously paint error.  I find myself going through all the cards of a particular figure analyzing the figure inside versus the card condition itself and have never wanted to ask anyone what they do for fear of getting trapped in the "carded vs non-carded" debate but since you seem to have both (and that's how I do my collecting), I was just wondering if you do this.

Anyways, back to your collection....impressive, most impressive  :)

Thanks for the compliments jadesfire!  When it comes to carded figures I am more interested in the condition of the card versus the figure position/paint job.  But, it really depends on the figure in question though.  If I've been looking for a particular figure for a long time and was desperate enough for it, I would buy it even if the card was in C-9+ condition.  I'm really not THAT picky, but if I have a chance to choose the condition of the carded figure I would want C-9 or better.

I got the nickname C-10 from Matt ("JediMac"), because he helped me get some Star Tours figures at Disneyland.  I only wanted true MOMC condition, and that's where he gave me the nickname "Mr. C-10."

I don't know why the video clips didn't work for you.  They've worked for others recently.  You might have to upgrade your version of Microsoft Windows Media Player.  Maybe that will help you out.

Again, thanks for the compliments!

Yeah, I do have two blue Snaggletooths, and those are from my childhood.  I used to have about 40 total vintage figures when I was a kid (maybe more), but I was only able to find about 10 of them.  So, everything you see basically was purchased or traded for in the last couple of years.

I completely revamped & overhauled my collection pictures.  I still have some work cut out yet, but I thought I would share with you the changes that have been made.

Updated the pictures in my collection, and also made a video clip of my collection room.  The file size is 9.8 mb, but it's a nice view of my room.  If you have a cable modem or DSL it'll take just a couple of minutes at most to download.

Nice collection there dustrho!  I like the videos you've got, but for some reason the new big one isn't working.  I'm on DSL, and it looks like the video loaded just fine, but when it plays, there's nothing there but blackness.   :-\

Did you try saving it to your computer's hard drive first?  Sometimes you have to download it first to make it play.  If you didn't do it that way, could you give that a try?  LMK if that works for you.  Thanks!

And thanks for the compliments on the other video clips!
