During this pandemic I found my self going through collectables. I may get my loose vintage starwars and put it on display. Seems a shame to have them stored away in darkness

I would love to see everyone's collections.

I'm busy with fixing up the house, so this might actually be the year that I finish my office and get the collection out of storage as well.

My collection is displayed in the basement, since the Pandemic hit we were asked to work from home. My wife was asked the same. She claimed the livingroom for her office so she could have a window and look outside while she worked. I happily took the basement and now I get to face my collection while I work everyday. It has been about 10 weeks and I still love looking at the items on the shelves!! I am not going to tell her, but I won.

Not sure if it is considered a 1st edition, I have attached 2 pics. It is a book club edition. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

David, That's a fantastic display. Well done creating the backer plates and bubbles for the card backs. From that picture, they look awesome. clapping

That's a great looking display, David! Placement and lighting are great. Love seeing all the card boxes in a row like that too. clapping

Clint I love that you've transformed an old coffin into a display cabinet. Brilliant.

Nice to see your collection though Smile You don't post it much.

Tell her if you don't get all of the bookcase, you'll put a nice wall hung display case above the bed for the rest of the loose collection. lol! lol!

This is how my collection currently looks  Crying or Very sad

These two boxes are just my loose figures. I'm currently wrapping each figure in acid free tissue paper, labelling it and then placing inside a figure clamshell case.
The rest of my collection, MOCS, vehicles, playsets etc..... are all in similar, or larger boxes. All stored up in the loft. I just don't have the space in my current house to display them.
