The new display!





And then there is this:

The one that started it all, my childhood Leia figure. She only had one eyebrow left, and a very yellow torso, so I "restored" her by simply painting her torso white with acrylic paint, and repainting her facial features (I really didn't want to do the peroxide soak method). And I bought an original vintage cape to complete her ensemble.

This was the first Kenner Star Wars figure that I got as a kid, which might explain my fascination with the character.

Enjoy!
Bruce

Thanks, Joshua. There is a really detailed post about the prototypes at behindthetoys.com .

lol! Thanks! I know it's really, really crowded. Believe it or not, these photos were taken after I went through and rearranged stuff, taking out a lot of crap, and put my loose ships in storage. My loose Imperial shuttle was totally blocking the boxed Death Star, so it had to go. This is probably the least crowded the collection has looked in a long time.

Great collection, both your Princess Leia focus and the collection in general.

I too like your display, reminds me a bit of walking into a toystore with all those boxed vehicles and playsets.

Yeah, Joe. It would be cool if I could hang paintings in here, but there isn't a lot of wall space left in this room, believe me.

Luckily, most of my paintings have sold.
Just to save what little space I have, the new paintings are stacked against the wall in another room. You can see most of them here.

Thanks, Shane. I'm going try to get some better "group" photos of carded "girls" this weekend. I realize that my collection is a bit overwhelming visually. I really like seeing people's collections that have everything spaced out, in big display cases. One day, I'm going to get some of those nice glass display cases...but not just yet. I got toys to buy first!

Thanks! That is exactly the "look" I'm trying for right now. I thought, if I can't make my collection look like a museum, then maybe it can look like a toy store display! I'd love to have a lot of shelf talkers, enough for each shelf. *Hmmm...*

Nice Stormy!

It really does look like some kind of independent toy store from the 80's rammed full of goodies that your parents won't let you touch! Lol!

Re: MOC Leia(s) Collection (with more Palitoy!) 8/29

Okay...so I've picked up a few more Leias for my MOC "offerless" focus, which is now veering into more foreign (to USA) carded figures. I've also updated the original post with individual photos, which look a little better.

The new ones:


Leia Endor Poncho Kenner Canada 77 back
Pretty cool with the clear bubble. A lot of these have been popping up recently.


Leia Organa Hoth Outfit General Mills German 45 back (AFA 85)
I like this one a lot. Normally I don't collect graded figures, but this seemed to be the only one floating around right now.

And then, there is this, that I picked up at room sales (hall sales?) at CV:

Leia Organa Hoth Outfit Palitoy 41 back
If you were at room sales, you probably saw it. Yeah, the bubble is lifting on one side, but it's still really, really nice. And really hard to find.

That's it for now. Well, actually ...um... I have another one on the way. Stay tuned.

Enjoy!

I have to say your collection really made me smile - because it looks like mine!! Very similar tastes in stuff. I LOVE the Kenner Alien boxed and of course your 12" stuff looks killer - you just need old IG man - IGGY should never be excluded from the party!
looking at you setup has made me realise I do have to have a boxed Sandcrawler again...

Looks good. Definitely has a bit of store display look going for it. Quite a good mix of stuff in there.

I'm digging on the boxed Kenner Alien. I think Kenner did a great design job for the figure and the box for a property that was pretty much unmarketable to kids back when it came out. Granted I would have liked it at the time, but it probably would have given most kids nightmares.

who thought the Palitoy Leia was a great score, especially being pretty rare, and was thrilled to see it in person.

Leia is such a great focus - she has an outfit for every movie! I am particularly impressed with your General Mills and Palitoy cards.

Great stuff!

The secret is to pray patiently, sometimes for years!
