Hello fellow collectors,

As a born-again Star Wars collector,
here is my humble collection which stemmed from
my re-ignited passion for this amazing universe from March, 2013.
































Stored up in a cupboard somewhere....
I have a bunch of Vintage Collection carded figures, a bit of carded Legacy Collection,
Mint in box vehicles for 3.75" line, a bit of carded SW Hot Wheels character vehicles,
Yet to displayed HT Stormies, an un-assembled E-11 blaster kit, a boxed-up EFX ANH Stormie helmet etc.
Sigh- still looking for proper space and shelves to display the rest.

The SW collecting saga continues....

Thanks for the compliments, Sergiu! :D
I sold almost 100% of my Anime stuff just to fund for Star Wars stuff....
I love Anime (still love Major Kusanagi), but I love Star Wars more!! LOL



cool Legos :D
Thanks man. :)



Great job, sir...nicely displayed!!!
Thanks Jedisquared!

You know sometimes the feeling of after a long wait for a figure to arrive,
the excitement kinda dies down a little?

Didn't feel that way about this fella tho! Still felt ecstatic when I received it! :D
(I apologise for the grainy pic)

After almost two years imprisoned in a cardboard box,
I finally cleared some other stuff to make space to display it.

The EFX Collectibles Collector's Edition ANH Stormtrooper.
My first ever Stormtrooper helmet. Of course it's symmetrical,
but after joining Rebelscum and learning from all the experts here (you know who you are :) )
- thank you for taking time to share, educate and advice,
now pursuing an 'asymmetrical' version... the hunt continues.... :D

Very nice! I still have the MR CE Stormie helmet and I'm an accuracy nut. :) I kinda consider this an in-universe helmet, what the helmets should have looked like if SW was real.

You're right! I never thought of it from that angle....
If Star Wars WERE real they would've mass-produced those suckers to pinpoint symmetrical accuracy...
any flaws or defects would've end up in that trash compactor! LOL :grin:

from the his cardboard & plastic prison... at last Vader's first back-up joined the team :D

Congrats on the Stortmrooper. Very cool figure :)
Agree. Quite a good one from Hot Toys.
However, after seeing it in person, I now understand what you meant in one of your earlier comments that
'it is a good representation, but still not fully-screen accurate as such...' I understand they went for the
more commercialized symmetrical helmet for the mass market.... hope they'll make a 'wonky' version one day.... :D

Recent addition.
The EFX PCR Vader helmet. That thing is huge! @@"
Had to get a custom-made acrylic case for it.... now perched on top of the Detolf shelf.

Very cool. How do you like Vader?

And are you finishing the blaster? Got a scope rail?
Thanks man. You're right- the ANH version is a good choice.
The only bone to pick with it, is the Probe Droid's display base.
Will only display it when I find a proper solution for it. Other than that, everything is great with Vader & droid.

Blaster? Yes. Will be finishing it- in transit at the moment XD.
Yes. I managed to obtain an Aluminum scope rail through through FISD.

I made my own base for the Interrogator Droid from a Sideshow small one, the one provided by HT was kinda crappy.

Cannot wait to see the finished E-11

Yeah- I saw that on your lime lighting thread. Good idea actually.
I just need to find a similar shape with more weight on it...

On E-11, thanks for the reminder man. I gotta kick myself in the butt to do it ...
Need to fight my dark procrastination side! XD

I got some metal pellets with glue inside that round base, making it base heavy. It helped a lot with stability, and the round base is better than the big one from HT. I've also seen people using an extra HT stand for the droid, but personally I wouldn't waste a separate stand for it
