That is one of if not the nicest collection I have ever seen, puts mine to shame. Not that there is any shame in my collection but you know what I mean. Awesome collection my friend!!!

Thanks, dude.  Those are some pics from my old place, though.  Wanted to take a pic before I moved.  I really need to get pictures taken of the new apartment.  I have no real wall space for putting up all my posters in my computer/game/hobby room like I wanted, like I had set up in the old place, but I finally found the shelving units I wanted and got all that put together, along with some display tiers, so I can display more of the smaller items better and save on space.  So, I finally can have the bulk of my collection out.  I can also finally have all my Jango Fett stuff out this time around, too.  Had that all boxed up last time.  It's always nice to move into a bigger apartment.  Not having enough poster space is always going to bug me, though, until the military finally stops moving us around, so we can settle down and get an actual house.  I've also never found a really good way to display a lot of the clothing items that's part of the collection.  The t-shirts I got in my size, I'll actually wear until I guess they finally start to wear out a bit.  Then, I suppose I'll just put them with the rest of the Fett related clothing in boxes.  Some of the clothes and costumes aren't adult size, so those are easier to pack away.  When I first started collecting and getting into Boba Fett, I remember seeing one of those "Boba Fett Bounty Wear" t-shirts at the local mall.  By the time I really got into collecting Fett stuff, they were all sold out, so I've been looking for one of those forever.  There was a couple times they've had them on eBay, but never my size, but I finally got one the other week.  In my size, no less.  So, I'm definitely wearing that bad boy.  It took me forever to find one of those.  I was looking at one of the collections provided on the Japanese webpage link that Peter provided.  This one, to be exact:

http://www.slave1.jp/room/gallery.cgi?m … amp;page=0

I thought it was really interesting how he framed the underoos in the poster frame like that.  Gave me some ideas on how to display some of the t-shirts and towels and such in the future.  Looked pretty neat. 

I still have some pieces I want to put up and some smaller boxes to go through before everything is completely up (meaning I have to put together all the Lego Slave 1's and the Lego Jango Fett--looks more fun than it actually is).  I also want to wait until the new Master's Replicas helmet comes in and is put up, and I need to get a display base (styrofoam dummy head or something) for the Mandalore the Indomitable helmet.  My wife had the idea of hanging up all the Slave 1 toys on the wall.  Since they all have handles on the backs of them, that worked out really good.  Just get some fishing line, tie a loop in the back, and hang it up like a picture.  Looks pretty neat. 

Anyway, once I get it all finished, I'll take some updated pics and post them on here.  I like taking all my stuff out the boxes and displaying it.  Plus, it saves on space, know what I mean?  All the hard to find stuff I'll keep in boxes.  The doubles of some of the figs I'll get (usually just only the figs--getting doubles of everything else gets really pricey, I'll just pack in some boxes to keep from getting damaged. 

I'm still looking forward to Sharpy posting some pics of his collection on here some day (hint, hint, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more).  Looking at the background when you do the Sharpy's Boba Fett Roundup, it looks like you have a lot more room to display your stuff.  Looks like you have enough room to display alot of the items and their boxes behind them.  See, that's the kind of set up I need.  So, I can have just one whole wall for shelves to put stuff on.  That would make me happy.  I keep telling my wife, when we get a house, it has to have a basement that I can turn into an entertainment den.  It has to have enough wall space for all the shelves and the posters and pics.  And it has to have windows, so I can hang up the Fett Star Wars curtains, too.  HAHAHAHA.  Yes, it can be like my own little Fett Cave. 

Oh well, it's nice to dream, I guess.

Re: Fett Collections

I decided to put this on a different post, because once I posted the one above, I realized just how freakin' long it was.  That's what happens when you can type faster than you can write.  Your thoughts get jotted down quicker, so you don't lose your train of thought.  It's also what happens when you're running of four hours of sleep and it's about five in the morning, and you're working the swing shift.  Seems like you're always tired and I have a really bad habit of just rambling on when I get tired like this. 

Anyway, talking about that hard to find Boba Fett t-shirt that I had tried to find for so many years got me thinking.  What's the one Boba Fett item that you've been trying to find for a really long time, but still just seems to keep eluding you?  The lifesize Boba Fett statue doesn't count, because let's face it, everyone would get that if they could.  I mean, that's a given.  For me, it's usually the weird odd smaller items that always seem to be a pain to find.  However, the one thing that I've been looking for, that I've never even seen on eBay, is the Slave 1 poster they had available only to members of the Star Wars Fan Club, back in the early 90's.  It was drawn by Star Wars artist Tsuneo Sanda of the Slave 1 in flight:

So, what is your hard to find item you just can't seem to find anywhere?

"Trample The Weak, Hurdle The Dead"

Re: Fett Collections

Those are certainly hard to find.  Not very many made at all.  I think I've only ever seen one for sale on eBay, and it was more expensive than the lifesize Don Post Boba Fett.  It was put some in the early 90's.  Dark Horse Comics still has it on their website.  Not for sale, of course, but it has some info on it.  We also have it listed on our Bounty database, as well, if I'm not mistaken. 

Here's the Dark Horse Link:

http://www.darkhorse.com/profile/profile.php?sku=16-525


Sculpted by master sculptor, Randy Bowen, this bronze statue of everyone's favorite intergalactic bounty hunter measure 12 1/2 inches tall and weighs in at a hefty 18 pounds! Each uniquely hand-crafted piece is mounted on a custom slab of black, Spanish marble and decorated with tri-tones patina, which adds subtle color detail to the bronze. Every piece comes with a "Certificate of Authenticity" signed by Randy Bowen.

Publication Date: Mar 01, 1997
Format: Limited edition bronze statue
Price: $3000.00


Found a link with the edition size listed:

http://www.statueforum.com/statuearchiv … n=showfull


It states that only 50 were made.  Explains why it's so expensive.

Its in the works. I know the NFL wants to expand and be able to play overseas alot more like they did this year in Britian or whatever. So who knows. Never say never!!!!

Re: Fett Collections

I hope the CFL dies.  You can't do anything in 3 downs.  Boringest game in the world.  So predictable.  Run, pass, kick, run, pass, kick etc.

They were thinking of playing a Buffalo game up in Toronto.  Still waiting for the Seahawks to come north...

Dude.  I've lived in Canada my whole life.  I've seen many games.  It's terrible.  Almost fall asleep.  But you have to watch yourself because of lack of security willing to do anything...

Re: Fett Collections

I'll have to get some pics later, but I can list most off the top of my head...

POTF2 Boba Fett

VOTC Boba Fett
Kamino Escape Jango
Boba Chubby doll
Various Micro Machine and Action Fleet Boba figures
Boba pewter figurine
A 1" Disney exclusive "Collector Pack" Boba figurine

Boba Boba pewter Monopoly token

Shadows of the Empire Slave 1
Boba/Slave 1 Transformer

I've got more coming. I had a little Fett spree, and I'm waiting on:
Boba Kotobukiya magnet
Boba Classics bust
Fett Legacy Evolutions 3-Pack
Boba bobblehead
Boba Holiday Special bobblehead

That's all I can think of right now, but theres definitely more around. I'm not an exclusive Boba collector, he's a just a large fraction of it. I have a fairly large collection of Star Wars merchandise, mostly armored characters. Vader, stormtroopers, scouts, snowtroopers, clones, Jango, Boba.

"Got your hands up almost like you're begging. Beggin' for a little piece of Boba."

Re: Fett Collections

Already remembering some more... mostly food premiums.

BK Boba figure, BK boba watch, balancing Boba from Taco Bell, assorted candy/gum containers of both Boba and Jango... and a Mighty Mugg

I just started collecting Boba Fett(/Jango/Mandos) more recently. Everything on my list was purchased in the last two years, outside of the POTF2, Action Fleet, and Micro Machines stuff... that's from childhood.

Re: Fett Collections

That's a really nice collection, dude.  I just got some shelves like that earlier in the year and have a similar set-up.  It's so much easier to display stuff now, isn't it?  I've finally got everything up on the shelves, except all the large Lego Slave 1's.  I still need to put those together.  Now, I'm systematically putting pics and posters on the walls, with what little room for them I have.  One day I'll have enough room for all the posters.....one day.  I want to wait to take a pic until everything is finally put up.  Lord knows when that'll be.  On my days off from work, I still sometimes have to go in to do some paperwork, not to mention other errands to run.  I always say there's never enough hours in the day. 

Really nice, though.  I like the proto Koto statue and that Fett poster in the bottom right.  Very sharp.
