After being on RS a few years I guess it's time for me to do a limelighting thread. Going forward I'm going to do better keeping my photos up to date. I'm putting my whole collection in here, which includes not only GG but also prop replicas, artwork, etc., since I frequent the GG section the most, and because splitting up the photos would be a bother. OK enough rambling. Here are the shots...

Overview from the four corners of the room:



Ben


Boba/BHs



Emperor


Han / Chewie


Leia


Luke


Rebels


Tatooine


Troopers


Vader


Yoda


Vintage



First Order


Resistance


Clones


Jedi


Sith


Clone Wars Art


FX Sabers

Fantastic collection Ben. I really like the way you have mixed in all of the various licenses. Very nice room.

Very nicely displayed. I love the Trinity on the cycle....and that Dengar "Wanted" artwork is unique. Great stuff!

That Kevin Graham piece was one of many cool freebies at artist alley, CV. I also got the 8X10 concept Boba from David Rabbitte which I need to find wall space for. I actually plan on some art rearranging once I get my Chris Trevas Boba and Metallix McQ AT-AT/Snowspeeder prints framed up. As you can see above, not much wall space left.


In GG news, I missed delivery of the Boba/Han/ST dio on Friday as Urban Collector sent this "sig required" (don't ya hate when that happens?). Hopefully I'll have it tomorrow.

Been burned too many times with this. That is why NOW, I have everything sent to my office at work.
Works like a charm, in more ways than one.

Thanks. Would love to get that Probe Droid but I feel the price is kind of steep right now and I'm also really nervous about it arriving in one piece. I had a bad experience going through two Grievous statues that both arrived broken and the Probe looks equally fragile.

That is a beautiful display and very clean. I am really happy for you man, it looks amazing and it look like a lot of time and care went into that collection. Very well put together.

Re: Ben\'s Star Wars room

Thanks much Vader and iroc!

Well after missing delivery again on my Boba/Han dio, I just paid the $4 fee at UPS to have it delivered to my work tomorrow. Guess I'll just give my work address going forward when ordering higher priced items.

Re: Ben\'s Star Wars room

Just unpacked the Lando bust and snapped some pics. Not GG's best likeness but not their worst either (I'm looking at you, Anakin busts, both rots and aotc).



Got #83 from Redford Films.


I like the dragons on the inside of the robe!

Re: Ben\'s Star Wars room

Thanks Hineken!

Just got a chance to open my replacement Boba/Han/ST dio. It's not perfect but it's a keeper. My main gripe is, as others have mentioned, Han is not quite parallel to the floor.
I'll shoot some pics over the weekend.

Off topic but kind of funny...Wired.com used my 8th birthday picture on their site to advertise the Super Shogun Stormtrooper. I'm the fifth picture, holding the record with big hair and buck teeth

The story is on the main page of RS.
Anyone else featured?

Re: Ben\'s Star Wars room

Thanks guys. Haven't been posting here much lately because I just got back from a mini vacation in NYC where I got to see JEJ in Driving Miss Daisy...I had second row seats and my wife and I really enjoyed it!
