Looking good as ever Chris. Nice set up.  8)  I hope next year I can take my stuff out for a breath of air & display them. The storage boxes that is!  ;D

dustrho...great collection pics.  I had a question for you, do you happen to know where you got those white shelving pieces that much of your collection is displayed on?  I noticed them on the pictures at your site, and I really need to do something different with my collection (need more room, a long time ago)..and was thinking of something like this.  Are you happy with it, and is it somewhat affordable?

I got the shelving from Menards (they're like a Home Depot, Lowes, or True Value Hardware store).  The shelves were very affordable... were less than $15 each I think.  Then you have to buy the L-brackets and the wall braces.  I think I spent about $60-70 on each wall.  It's definitely one of the most affordable, flexible, and easiest ways to display your collection.  It really helps out a lot if you're limited on space, which I am.

After I get a house next year with a big basement, I'm going to probably use some shelves like I have now and will also get some bookshelves.

Thanks for the compliments!

Thanks dustrho...we actually have Menards around here too, so I'll head there on our next trip.  Thanks for the advice, and your collection looks great :).

Sorry, I had one other question about those shelves you use in your display dustrho...would they be deep and/or sturdy enough to hold say a Republic Gunship or the Falcon?  I'm really looking for something that allows me to display at least the majority of my ships and figures together, and I was curious if these might work.  I hope to look at them this weekend.  Again, kudos on a great looking collection. :)

Mosnab, here's a PICTURE of one of my Republic Gunships that are sitting on my shelf.  It doesn't completely fit on the shelf, but pretty damn close.  Now I don't think I'd be able to put my Millennium Falcon up there, but a Gunship isn't a problem.  I think my shelves are about a foot deep or so.  Any other questions... just let me know.

And thanks again for the compliments about my collection.   8)

Chris, I love the collection pages!  I'm just like WOW!  Your army building may put me to shame.

I also love that you've got some Micro Collection stuff in there.  That's always been one of my favorite segments of the vintage line.  I only wish I had some of those.  Especially the Carbon Freeze Chamber.  

Also, I think it's cool how you lined up your vintage bounty hunters with the modern versions.  Nice touch!

Here's one of my coolest acquisitions in a while.  It's definitely different, and it looks nice in my collection.

Dale, I got it from this eBay dealer named "spikythong" and here's an auction for this exact piece.  I only paid $15 for it.  The detail is awesome, it's heavy, and is 14" tall.  I love it!

Very cool and unique piece there Chris!  Was it $15 total, or more than that shipped?  I'd imagine it's kinda heavy and shipping might run an extra bit more than usual.  What was the final tab on it?  I might take a gander at that auction.

Nice score!   8)
