Thank you so much for taking the time to say that about my display. I completely agree with you, when everything sits in a box or crate it seems like a waste. When my stuff sits tucked away, I try to find any time I have to free my stuff and show it off. Have a great day !

What kind of shelving unit is that it looks great.😊
Thank you so much! It’s an old ikea model, bought it from a house in Seattle a few years ago. The owner said it was her husbands and it was old. The knobs are Death Star knobs I got from Hobby Lobby

Looks great coach! K
Thanks Jedikman! I really appreciate the positive comment!

Lovely display! I had never seen that deathstar transformer before, such a cool toy and an even bettter backstory.
Thank you so much ! When we first starting dating she went to flea market and asked for vintage Star Wars. The seller came up with this, have loved it ever since because a girl friend of mine actually bought me a Star Wars toy. Knew then , I would marry this girl , lol. Flash forward 11 years; we are married, two kids and own a home. Love how the Death Star reminds me of that early dating period. Have a great day !

Jedi night 79, thanks you so much for your comment , I really appreciate it, yes it is complete , it was not cleaned and Renovated at that time, so it was all in pieces, but it is now (note my satellite dish is from a 2004 otc Falcon, if anyone would donate a Kenner one to me that would be awesome :)

Update 5/26
I got tired of my figures always Falling off of the risers , worrying they were broken or chipped, accessories lost, etc. So after an avalanche yesterday, I took it all out! I decided to have them in scene order with the vehicles and the movie they were in.
I actually love it more now. Saw GQ Jedi on YouTube had his extra loose figures like that and thought I’m gonna do it with my collection. I believe it’s the best I can do with my limited case sWhat do you guys think ?

Guardsoncards,
Hey how you been? Good to hear from you. I’m glad my display inspired you, I’m really pleased with it, though I’m also looking for a bigger retroblasting style display case. The boxer shuttle I got from a buddy of mine in an epic trade we did a year or so ago. I restored the shuttle and it’s awesomely clean now. Thanks for the compliment!

Ok I competed my new display case! I love it, and it has been moved into the house due to wife approval! I used the same theme by movie order I used in my last display. Used some extra wood I had to create some black risers. Each shelf pictured below is the entire shelf, then a close up of the left side then right side.
1- entire display case- $25 what a steal!

shelf 1 - Ep IV- included a modern VC luke Yavin ceremony card- , love Luke!

Shelf 3- ESB- under my y-wing (which was seen at the end of ESB passing the medical frigate) is a rogue one diorama I made of all the 5 poa figures from that line. I loved rogue one, it’s like the nonseen beginning of a new hope so I felt the 5poa figures belong (other than 2 Luke’s , these are the only modern I still own) Would have had them displaywebefore ep IV , but needed to use the case as a riser for the ywing.
