Nice collection!
What's the story with the reveal ESB GG bust in that last picture (top middle)? Also are the top right and bottom middle the same (hard to tell)?
Thanks.


The one in the middle back is a custom, it was made using a bootleg body and the head from a damaged EE exclusive Vader bust, here is a better pic:

The bottom middle is an original GG bust, back right is a bootleg, the bootleg is smaller, here is a pic of them together.

How do you like the bank? I have one coming from TFAW but I am skeptical.

I think it's really pretty nice and honestly am looking forward to the removable helmet version after actually seeing this one in person.

At least on the one I have, the paint job is really good, actually better than some of the high end crap I own.

I'm so jealous of that Lego maquette. Were you lucky enough to get in on the preorder, or did you have to bite the bullet on ebay?

Those high end pieces look absolutely fantastic in the Detolf stands.

I rarely order anything from SWS.com, but I did on the Lego Vader, which definitely was a wise decision.

Now that I think about it, the only high end Vader items I did not preorder are the Attakus pieces.

Nope, it's the Applause Vader Meditation Statue. It's made of a polystone type material & it is quite heavy.

Not sure if the offer is still good, but they do not ship to the U.S.

Re: Vader Focus Collectors, here\'s our post!

That's quite a collection of watches, I imagine that took a long time to put together.

I've always wanted the Ceramic frame, but I'm always worried about it being shipped safely.

Those are just the Vader ones (1/3rd of my watch collection).

I have been working on that focus for about 6 years now

What can you tell me about that figural Vader on the far right?
Can you post more pics of this?

Re: Vader Focus Collectors, here\'s our post!

Sure.

It looks like a bootleg bank because of the bottom, but there is no coin slot at the top. Its about 7" tall. It was also wired up to light up a bulb where the lightsaber is, but I haven't been able to get that working. Not sure if it's the wires or the bulb (probably the bulb). Says "made in Taiwan" on the bottom. That all I got on it.

Re: Vader Focus Collectors, here\'s our post!

Most are all licensed items. 95% of them are pre 1985 as well. I have a few from more recent times, like a Sci-fi once, etc. I dont collect the new stuff, its just not appealing.

I have some very cool bootlegs though.

This one has a lightsaber that moves back and forth with the seconds. (I have a Han Solo one like this as well)



A generic bootleg, kinda plain but it was in a series of 3



and then this ROTJ bootleg




I made contact with a guy who was VP of operations for Bradley Time during the entire SW run. he told me some very interesting stories about how the industry worked and why they stopped making watched for SW. basically Chinese bootlegging put them out of business. Crazy!

If you are interesting in the watches, I will have a limelight up soon showing them all (plus the clocks, too)

Yes, very interesting that you've focused on the watches. unusual slant to any collection. Thanks for sharing.

Do you have any close up photos of the individual watches?

Cool focus. Have you always collected watches and strayed into Star Wars or the other way round?

Some of my collection. Trying to save some extra to get the ACME character key and would love to get the Diplomatic Mission maquette.

Re: Vader Focus Collectors, here\'s our post!

Wow!! There are some great collections here!!

I am sure everyone will be interested to hear that
there is a new Darth Vader book coming out Oct.27, called
"Star Wars: The Complete Vader". It is co-authored by Pete Vilmur, and will feature some amazing pieces.

The book is available for pre-sell on amazon.com:
Amazon Pre Sell - "Star Wars: The Complete Vader"
It is going to be in the same format as the "The Vault" and has some choice pieces from my personal collection which have never been shown.
Personally, I am very excited to see the final product, and as a Vader collector as well this will be a must-have book.

Re: Vader Focus Collectors, here\'s our post!

Tony,
I love the watches!! Here are my Vader tick-tocks


If I had to pick a favorite one, it would be the MIP Sci-Fi Channel "Launch" watch. I spent a long time even looking for a loose one, and was very excited when an original with all the packaging, in unused condition popped up on ebay.
I have most of the wall clocks as well, but not enough actual wall space left for them LOL

Well, I had a leg up on you as that it's going to have some pieces from my collection in it

It still looks like an amazing book. It will have pull-outs and features similar to "The Vault", so it should be an exciting book.

Re: Vader Focus Collectors, here\'s our post!

Bill,

Nice watches! I was lucky enough to find one of those "Launch" watches too. What number is your limited edition Fantasma watch? I got #2338.


Also, there is a second version of the 3d Arts watch. One has a plastic band, one has a leather band.

oh, and do you have one of these?

It's a Texas Instruments Vader Iron-on.




and I finally have all my watches on my site, with better pics, etc.
