Noob Collection

Post by the89thchris on Mon Nov 14, 2016 1:00 pm

Here's my weak sauce collection. I'm 32 loose figures short. Working on a bulk deal for complete versions of all of those.
Picking up a couple MOCs here and there. AFA UV Resistant cases. I kinda feel like that's the least I can do for a 12 or 20 back.

I've got the Canadian box for the Slave1 as well.

Nice looking collection Chris cheers

Not weak sauce at all - to me collecting is about quality , not quantity . Your collection looks very nice quality and , as long as your having fun , nothing else matters clapping

I always had a lot of POTF2 stuff but it never occurred to me how accessible the vintage stuff was until I worked on a documentary about Canadian comic conventions which started late last year. Since then I've been picking up a few thinks here and there all from collectors or at conventions while on work trips across Canada and a few stops in. The US, the only eBay purchase there is the 3po 12 back which was quite cheap due to the condition.

Thanks, that's actually a Jann Tosh, understandable mistake as all the card backs are the same on the Canadian ones. Also it's a pretty bad photo lol

yeah jeeeeeez don't u know the difference between one ridiculous looking, forgettable droids character and another? lol I suppose the identical cards make the Canadian droids and EWOKS Mocs considerably less desirable. I got it for $100 cad so I'm happy with it.

Just made a 20"x30" of my bounty hunters shot. It really looks great in the room with the collection.

That pretty much displays them in 12" scale lol with enough resolution to handle it.

I'll post a new shot of that cabinet soon, its coming along.

Thanks, I'm not sure what else would make for a nice print. That being said, Kim Simmons sells prints so we should probably just got to his site lol.

If I can think of another good McQuarrie inspired composition, maybe then I'll do another. That's about as cheap of a frame and print as possible, about $50 CAD total.
