Sounds good, would love to see it!
Here's a small piece I've just put together, a signed trading card by Ralph McQuarrie, got the card in a trade and was trying to figure out how to display it.
I opted for a small shadowbox with a figure of ralph next to the card, it was signed later in life when he was suffering with parkinsons so its just his initials, but I'm pleased to have it, if George is the father of star wars, then Ralph is the grandfather, I don't think that's overstating it

Also just got this figure in, from ebay, love this line, and the clamshell packaging sets it off well, I cleaned of the sticker residue with some wd40, after this photo

Haven't posted in a while, I see I need to reupload my pics, bloomin photobucket! Smile
Heres an interesting figure I just bought, the figure is a run of the mill luke x wing, but the rear is an invitation to a press preview of the dvd
The seller thinks there were only around 200 of these made, so its pretty rare, it has an ugly crease running through it but apart from that I like the card

Very cool. If it was limited to 200 I'm sure the name of the invitee would ring a bell.

Hey guys, glad you like it, all it said on the listing was that he was told around 200 had been produced, that's all I know
I just thought it was an interesting piece, glad to have it in the collection Smile

That's cool Andy, they started scraping the bottom of the barrel at the end with this one, not based on ralphs work like the others were, but I like it anyway, Christmas and star wars, great combo! clapping
