Title: King_Maul's Collection
Post by: King_Maul on January 25, 2007, 08:49 PM
First off, I am really impressed with some of the collections in this thread.  Maybe the way I should say it is, I'm impressed with all the collections I've seen so far in this section.  The display of the loose collections are very cool and awesome, and I feel a little lacking in artistic expression after seeing some of these pics as most of my figures are carded.

Here are some pics of my carded collection.  I was a straight carded collector until ROTS.  I have some other stuff in another room, so I'll get some pics taken after I reorganize a little :).  Upon entering the room, the pictures are taken from left to right.

That's a sweet collection, King. I love seeing a mix of carded figures, loose figures, Galactic Heroes, Unleashed, and the Titanium ships. It's even nicer to see that your loose figures aren't all clones, and that you have a nice mix of characters. Once again, nice collection and keep up the good work.

Yeah, nice set up there, King.  Impressive looking collection!  I hate seeing carded figures displayed all over the wall like that, 'cause it looks so nice, and pisses me off that all of mine are still boxed up due to my sheer laziness...  :-\

Makes me nervous to finally open up all of my Titaniums too, since your carded lineup looks pretty sweet there too.  Good stuff!

Had some time to tinker around with my SW Transformers a couple of weekends ago.  Here are a couple of pics of them:

Nice pics of your carded collection KM!!  I really like the Titanium stuff all grouped together like that too.  All of my stuff is boxed but one day I hope to have a room large enough to display everything.

You and I are possibly the only two on this board that collects Star Formers  ;) - almost mistook them for titanium ships though.

Thanks iFett!  I don't collect the "real" Transformers transformers but for some reason I really dig the SW Transformers.  They're just different and fun to play with.  I love the vehicle modes on these guys.

I realized I needed to refresh my collection pictures, so I just did on the original post.  I haven't had a chance to take pictures of my BSG titanium collection and the forged figures; those are in another room.  I'll try to get those up soon...

Very impressive collection.  I hope to display all my carded figures in a similar way...as soon as we buy a house.

This is the best kind of wallpaper!

That is one impressive collection, Maul!

Your collection is looking very nice, King! You have a great balance between loose and carded items, and everything looks to be very well displayed. Those Transformers and Titaniums are looking very cool, and I'm kind of tempted to begin buying those lines. Thanks for giving the Clone Wars Starfighters, Command Gunship, and SA Clones a great home, and keep up the great work with your collection!

I remember seeing the room in person and the pictures really don't do it justice. It's great to see walls completely covered with figures and to see all those wonderful toys. King you need to post a picture of that the room looks like now.  ;)

 :D Paul, that is hilarious because I've been thinking about posting new pictures but I don't want to let go of outdated pictures and the fond memories of my beloved SW room :(.  I'll try to take a few updated shots of the reconstructed "Star Base" and post them this weekend.

I should move my collection pictures from RS to here and then show what the room has turned into since. No more star wars in the room. Just purple and pink walls and lots of princess stuff and shoes!!! :P

Looks good.  How long did it take from photo one to photo two?   :D

Post by: King_Maul on November 10, 2008, 01:51 AM
 :) It took probably about 5 to 6 hours of total time.  I even had some help on a few of them.  I actually took these to my dad's house, so that my dad could keep an eye on my son while I was tinkering with them.  Darren loves to knock them over every chance he gets.  It looks like more new SW Transformers are scheduled to be released next year.  I guess I'll need more than 5 to 6 hours next time  ;).

WTF!?  I didn't know there was a blue and a grey version of Vader's TIE.  Is that grey one fairly recent?

Damn cool pic.  8)
Title: Re: King_Maul's Collection
Post by: King_Maul on November 11, 2008, 10:45 AM
Thanks Jesse, the grey version was the one that came in the WM Exclusive Galactic Showdown set that included the blue Obi JSF.  I didn't pick up the latest blue Obi JSF in the Cross Over packaging since it looks the same as the one from the GS set.  I wouldn't be surprised if the grey TIE is repackaged in the Star Wars Clone Wars Transformers Wave 3.  That wave is estimated to arrive Mar '09 (EE.com).

Thanks for the info!  I'll be keeping an eye out for it.
