I originally planned to try and add a proof or 2 to complement my MOC figures. However, after getting my 1st proof from Joe Y several years ago, I sold off the majority of the production collection and my primary focus has been collecting 2-D material for the 1st 21 characters. I'd like to thank all the friends who have helped me along the way.

I'll update the thread with more characters as time permits. Enjoy!

Awesome! Or no, that's an understatement :) I love the Ben stuff, it is really good to see Adam's old run almost intact. Do you have it on display?

Can't wait to see the rest :)

This is about to become one of the most incredible limelights ever. I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of the group to show up.
Your Star Wars cromalin 4 character sheet is a thing of beauty and one of the best pieces I've seen

Very cool way to document your character runs. "AZ Inner Circle" has it made getting to see this collection live every month or two. Truly amazing if you go for that kind of stuff, lol. Thanks for sharing Tim.

That Ben-run is amazing. At first I thought why the MOC's among those nice proofs, but it took a while to realize that they were mock-ups. Wow!

Putting together a deep and comprehensive 2D run for a single SW character is hard enough. The fact that you're doing it for all 21 and appear to be doing a good job at it is pretty amazing. I'm looking forward (and afraid at the same time) to see what you've done with Power Droid. :)

Thanks for the kind words everyone:) The 1st 12 are up, but that's probably it for this weekend. Too many Easter eggs to hide...

I still have my mouth wide open. Would be interesting to hear the background story of how to grab those rare and hard to find proofs in such a limited time. Are you rich ? :p

I've been holding off posting until all 21 characters were posted. I can't really say much that hasn't already been stated by so many others... but seriously, this is one of the most impressive runs of 2D material ever assembled and for probably the most difficult collective set of characters a collector could try to tackle. Kudos to you my friend for putting it all together in one place. Just goes to show that patience and hard work go a long way in this hobby. Thanks for sharing!
