Biggs Darklighter's "Closet" Star Wars Mini Collection
« on: February 06, 2008, 09:22:38 PM »
Well...I mentioned in my Falcon LE Review that maybe I should try to get all my mini helmets, mini blasters, and mini lightsabers out on display.....

I don't really have anywhere to put them right now so I thought that instead I'd make up a little display in one of my walk-in closets.

Yeah I know...it sucks.  :P

Anyway, I thought I'd post a couple pics. As always, click the pics for bigger images.


First up are the mini helmets! The Wedge is on top. I wish MR had kept the packaging consistent! The three spaces on top will soon be full as I have a ShockTrooper mini, a Gree mini, a 501st mini, and a Clonetrooper mini on the way. Bottom row (left to right) are the Blackhole Stormtrooper, Red 5 X-wing, Stormtrooper, and Boba Fett.



Below the mini helmets I have the mini blasters!
Left to Right are the Han SDCC ESB, the regular Han ESB, Boba Fett, and Stormtrooper



Last but not least are the mini lightsabers!



Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

Column 1 = SWS Dark Chrome Anakin ROTS, CIII Dark Chrome Obi ROTS, Gold Tyranus ROTS, Gold Anakin ROTS, Gold Obi ROTS
Column 2 = SDCC Dark Chrome Yoda, Bright Chrome EBAY Luke ROTJ, Bright Chrome Sidious, Bright Chrome Yoda, 2004 CS Gold Obi AFBB
Column 3 = Mace Windu, Luke ROTJ, Obi ANH, Sidious, Tyranus ROTS
Column 4 = Luke ANH, Anakin AOTC, Yoda ROTS, Dooku AOTC, Maul BD TPM
Column 5 = Anakin ROTS, Vader ANH, Best Buy Dark Chrome Sidious, Obi AFBB, Luke ESB
Column 6 = Vader ROTS, Obi AOTC, Obi ROTS, Vader ESB
Column 7 = Spares of Vader ANH, Luke ANH, Luke ROTJ, Luke ESB (To make a Vader ROTJ and Luke ROTJ V2 later on)
Column 8 = 2006 CS Mace Windu, 2007 CS Qui-Gon, 2005 CS Maul Full

Well....that's it for now. I'll update my "closet" pics when the other new mini helmets get here. Maybe one day I'll actually have all of them out on display!  ::)

02/15/2008 Update....Shocktrooper, Clonetrooper, and Gree mini helmets are here!



03/10/2008 Update....Added, 501st, Vader, and Utapau Shadow Trooper mini helets



Also got a few other items organized:


From left to right, these are the Medal of Yavin Scaled Replica, Elizabeth Swann's Necklace from POTC, Davy Jones' Key from POTC-DMC, a Han Solo Star Wars Collector's Plate, and way over on the right a Corgi Enterprise D

03/11/2008 Update. Added comparison pics of Luke ROTJ .45 mini blue tray large COA matte box versus the standard edition Luke ROTJ .45


Note the left box is matte and the right box is gloss

Note the very apparent blue tray of the top Luke ROTJ

Got my shipping notice for my 501st mini helmet.

Also....just managed to pick up a 1st release Luke ROTJ .45 mini (big COA, blue Tray, matte box) for a great price.

I'll update pics when they all get here  :D

I have debated over and over again whether to "modify" the Wedge box. I have no idea why the heck Master Replicas decided to go with a different packaging on that one only.

Oh yeah...I also picked up a MR Vader RadioShack mini helmet as they're 19.99 right now!

1st release Luke ROTJ .45 mini (big COA, blue Tray, matte box) showed up today. Very nice too. Picked it up from someone on the RS forums for a great price.

Now all I'm looking for is a 1st release Wal-Mart/QVC Obi-Wan ANH Weathered and I'll have all mini variants that are not gold.

This is what I'm looking for:

SW-305 ANH - Obi-Wan Kenobi Weathered (2004 QVC UK/Wal-Mart.com Exclusive)

Mini update!

501st mini helmet is here! I'll get pics better soon. I like it more than I thought I would. I was worried about the color of blue but it's darker in person than I've seen in pictures. I think it photographs weird in flash photography:


It actually looks like the without flash pic in natural light. Every pic I've seen of the blue looks like the with flash pic I took. Kind of threw me off!

Also...got a Utapau Shadowtrooper Scaled Helmet from Razor's Edge ordered and shipping tomorrow! Boy am I glad I managed to actually get an order in for that one today  ;D

Finally my mini helmet collection will be complete (other than maybe picking up a C3PO at some point)

And the grand total is?? :o

LOL

Nice collection... I'd like to have all those...but not your screaming bank account ;) I think collecting SW merchandise is the most expensive hobby for an average person (yeah, yeah...we here aren't average ;) lol) I end up drooling and wish listing instead of buying...
