Re: Fett Collections
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:
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.
