I guess the GG section is the best place for this since I have most of the busts and a few of the statues. I also have some 12" and PF Sideshow and a ton of Hasbro. It's been about seven years since I've been able to display my stuff, but we recently moved and I finally have a room to myself again. Still unpacking Hasbro CW and EU stuff to fill the Detolfs.

I installed the glass-paned door so I could enjoy the room from the outside while keeping the kids and the dog out. We removed the ceiling fan and installed a 6-light adjustable track light. I took the doors off the closet and removed the hanger rack so I could install shelves in there. The furniture is all Ikea Vittsjo, Lack and Detolf series. I installed the Dioder lights and will soon have them on a timer so they add a little ambience in the evenings when the door is closed. The shelves in the closet currently house some EU and CW, buth I plan to use that space for Ep. VII-IX once those collectibles hit.

I hope to add more pics of specific display shelves soon. These give more of a general sense of my collection. Please enjoy the pics!

Thanks everyone! Got my Darth Malgus bust yesterday. This is one of GG's heavier busts, and a nice piece too.

Definitely a collection to be proud of, I've got a lot of those mini-busts myself but you've got several I'd love to own but they are just to pricy now-a-days.

Thanks! I'll admit to overpaying for a couple of them on the secondary market (red and blue AOTC clones), but not many. I was fortunate recently to get the BHS bust for under $200 on ebay. I'd been eyeing auctions forever, but they always seemed to end at $325+. So yeah I still overpaid for that one, but I was happy to get that price.

I enjoyed looking at these photos. Great collection and nicely organized. I spotted a couple of cool custom busts in there too. Well done!
Thank you. The custom AOTC Padme and Bespin Leia were done by forum member YodaMan2. The facial likenesses on these are amazing. Love the mods he made to the original busts. You can see better pics of them in the Padme and Hoth Leia bust threads. I came across the Padme one on ebay before I saw him post it on RS, and then when he posted the Leia one I had to have it.

I've paid more than I should've for a few mini-busts but I've yet to get the pricier ones that I'd really like & they'll cost far more than anything I've bought so far if I want to ever see them in my collection (Boba Fett ESB, Darth Malak, BHS & a couple of others). :)

Thank you very much. I think the best part has been that going in I knew what I had and how I wanted to lay it out. If I had been building the display piece by piece over the past 10 years without knowing what was being released and/or what I would buy it would've been harder to keep organized. That's where Ep VII-IX items may cause some display issues.

Exactly my thoughts! Do you know how many total pieces you have? The count has to be Huge!
I have it all in a spreadsheet, but I've never tallied it up. If only I could afford more of the statues and Sideshow PFs!

wow, nice photo!
Thanks! A couple of big additions to the collection yesterday. I sold off my Hasbro Marvel collection at a local store and was able to pick up the 1:1 SSC Boba Fett bust and the Hot Toys DX Bespin Luke (plus some change). Eagerly anticipating opening them up tonight.

'Tis the season. Got my holiday Cody and Padme busts out. I don't plan on adding the holiday affects to Yakface or Jar Jar.



Now I need to set up the Star Wars tree.

Jar Jar is the only holiday mini-bust I own & I rather like his Christmas lights..., kept them on him. :) I've thought about getting the Cody seasonal bust but that's about as far as I've got, I have plenty of Cody in my collection so no rush. lol ;)

First off congrats on getting the Fett bust. I love mine it's one of my favorite items in my collection. I love your tree I think I need to get a second one for the basement so I can display my Star Wars ornaments proudly. I put some on our main tree in the living room but my wife tends to move them to the back. :(

I added a few pieces to the collection over the last week or so. Koto 1:10 stormtrooper 2-pack, Koto 1:10 Grievous and Attakus 1:10 Utapau clone and white clone. None of it's GG, but I don't feel like posting the collection across a bunch of different threads.



I do have a more Hasbro-specific thread here if anyone's interested:

I'm still waiting for my preorders of the 2 Attakus clones & Kotobukiys General Grievous to come into stock, I was told they'd be here this month but I doubt I'll get them before the new year now. Nice new editions for your collection..., anything else coming or preordered at all?

I currently have on preorder with SSC the 1:6 Vader and 1:6 veteran and shiny clone troopers. I'd like to get the Imperial probe droid, but I'm hoping it will still be available once my rewards points for these figures are converted so I can use the points.

I also have on preorder with GG the snowspeeder Luke, Thrawn, security battle droid and pilot battle droid busts, and the Ilum Yoda statue.

I have the Koto ArtFx sandtroopers on preorder with BBTS, but I'm not sure I really need any more sandtroopers. The GG sandtrooper busts, GG Dewback statue, Attakus squad leader and Hasbro 6" sandtrooper might be enough for me.

That's a lot to be looking forward to. :) I have some of those items on preorder myself..., the Kotobukiya Sandtroopers are high on my list of wants really, I pushed to get them made & got a fair number of people that aren't even remotely interested in collecting Star Wars to vote for them on Facebook. Sandtroopers along with Stormtroopers are my favourite characters though so I'm happy to have more, already paid for my preorder. :) I've got the 3 Kotobukiya 1:7 scale figures, the 3 Gentle Giant mini-busts, 1 of Sideshow's 1:6 scale figures & the Attakus Sergeant..., I really want the Squad Leader Attakus made too & the Gentle Giant statue on the dewback if it ever turns up for a decent price. :)

I have the Mara Jade on Pre-Order thru my local CBS as well as the Spider-Woman from their Marvel line. I skipped ordering Grievous and the Sandtroopers as I already have them in the larger scale.

I have Commander Wolfe on preorder to, along with Echo & Fives..., I do like the clones Sideshow make, don't buy generic clones anymore though..., just actual characters. :)

I've not actually seen all of the Christmas tree decorations before, always thought of them as tacky & being a step too far (exploitation) but seeing them on your Christmas tree they actually look quite nice..., thanks for sharing. :)
