    My Vintage Loose Display Set

    This is a set of vintage figures that I've had on display in this same cabinet, more or less untouched, since around 1998. There is a plexiglass panel in front that I removed to take these pictures.

    I've collected hundreds of more figures since then, including better condition examples of many of these, and lots more variations, but I keep all the rest in cases in a dark closet to better preserve them.



    There's a few customs in there:



    There are more pics of those and some others of mine in the "Customizing" forum vintage thread.

    Most of the POTF figures were taken right off of beater cards, which was pretty common back then (I don't even open cut cards these days!):



    When I put them in the case, Max Rebo was BLUE, as was one of the smocks on the Ugnaughts. Interestingly, Blue Snaggletooth's torso became discolored over the years, but the Stormtrooper right next to him has stayed nice and white:



    And here is one of my very few carded figures, which I also bought in the '90's when non-US figures were a LOT cheaper, more as a curiosity than anything else:



    I know it's not the greatest limelight, but these are only a fraction of what I have now, and they've been with me a long time!

    I made it!

    You'll notice I got some of the colors wrong, but this was before the POTF2 and the other half dozen or so versions that Hasbro put out, and the only reference material I had was the VHS tape of ROTJ and pictures in magazines.

    I made one other that I think was slightly better but that was for someone else and I don't have any pictures of it now.

    Thanks! The rest of my collection, aside from vehicles/playsets, is essentially a closet full of vintage vinyl cases and Darth Vader cases full of loose complete figures. Someday if I have time I'll lay them all out for a group shot!

    Nice set up!

    that would look fantastic painted yellow
    was thinking the same thing, a solid color would great on that instead of the woodgrain
