Luke's Collection thread part 2
« on: July 22, 2006, 06:21:56 PM »
As I've been away for a while and I have a thing or two to add to my collection gallery here, I decided to start a new thread to mark the occasion.  (This is the continuation of this collection thread here.)

The first new item since I've been gone is called the Norrebo by Ikea:


(Just a phone picture but I suppose you'll forgive it as it is just for this gag)

Now as you can imagine this can only mean one thing, time to reorganize the collection!!  More pics to come. ;D

I wish I had an Ikea near me.  Looking good Luke ;)  Any plans to add a Vader helmet?
I'm not wearing hockey pads.

So many good ideas at Ikea for prop displays, and of course the prices are always right as well.  Every piece of furniture you see in my shots are actually from Ikea. Gotta save up money to give to MR somehow.  :D

As for a Vader helmet, the rumors about a possible ROTJ reveal Vader have made me wary to jump in on one of the ROTS ones.  One of those nice mid range Rubies, to go with the rest of my Rubies set might work as well.  We'll just have to see.

I've really started to enjoy the idea of collecting helmets as well, but taking one look at my shocktrooper you might understand why.

I wonder why Chancellor Palpatine would be so interested in the Emperor's Own?  It's almost like those two completely different people are related some how. ???

 :D

Sorry about that, sometimes I totally forget my true identity, "must live the character", I'm loosing my credibility here  ;D

I just love the suspension of disbelief the prequels have about Palps, since most serious fans knew the Emperor's name, while most casual fans did not.  Too much fun.

I just realized you can't see one saber in that set up:


I know I swore I'd never get one, but when the price is right, well, what can I say? ;D

True, the prequels might have felt a bit different to those who didn't know and then they were all crying & shocked when true nature of Chancellor was exposed  ;D.

But now back to topic, I must say I adore your collection, but is there any item that's very special to you if you had to choose?  :)

The ROTJ EE, is such a great saber, so unique.  A proper realization of what the EE line should be.  Not exactly the prop, but what it might have been, and it's just so shiny and nice. 8)
