Empire State Star Wars Collectors Club (January 27th, 2018)

Post by the89thchris on Mon Jan 29, 2018 9:11 pm

I had the privilege of attending an Empire State Star Wars Collectors Club meet up with the Ontario Star Wars Collector's Alliance on Saturday and I'm going to share some photos here. I shot a lot of video as well but that's going to take some time. There are some new people out there in New York who know about TantiveXI and I'm confident you'll meet some of them here soon.

Among several highlights, met Brian Stillman (Director of Plastic Galaxy) and got to talk cameras with him, I also met Skye Paine from the 'Chive Cast, and documented his first (and probably last) submission to a grading service.

The most insane collection of Fett mocs you may ever see.

Skye Paine submitting a ROTJ "Afro-Bespinian" directly to Ross Barr for grading by CAS (which Skye picked up a few minutes before)

This Harbert C-3PO (or D3BO  rofl ) was also submitted for grading to CAS.

The requisite Dennys stop at midnight:

I also had the pleasure of taking the group shot for the ESSWCC:

One of a handful of pickups for me, a un-sonic welded Walrusman which I purchased from Brian Stillman.

I had a great time, and there are so many more interesting things that come up in the video (which I'll start cutting this week), but if you've got any questions about these just let me know.

UPDATE



There were a few sound issues here, if you find that you’re too annoyed by the sweet licenced music, the mute button is one click away. rofl

I've uploaded these videos "Unlisted" so they are not visible publicly on YouTube, you need to have a link to see them.

They’re alright. Could have been better but I really wanted to prioritize enjoying the event and not imposing with too much camera gear.

Glad you guys like them, that shuttle in the cas presentation is insane lol
