Just arrived in today is this 6 inch custom diorama from Paint Samurai Customs

https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q= ... %20customs

It cost me $100 US (shipping included) but this guys work is superb and the piece just displays brilliantly, especially with a bit of red light thrown on it.

That's great! :D

My latest acquisition has been the Bandai miniature Star Destroyer model kit. it's about 10cm long when assembled, which I have yet to do. The detail is insane. Considering I paid less that $18 for it delivered from Japan I'm stoked. :D

Speaking of Bandai, many thanks to Eng76 for the Bandai mini helmet trade deal. They look awesome with my Hasbro mini helmets.

On my most recent trip to California, my buddy found out that the only figure I own – that's by choice, mind you – is my childhood [vintage] Kenner Vader, which he reckoned needed some company in the form of his illegitimate and estranged son…

This tee was a gift from one of my friends, who's Hawaiian, to wear on our last trip to Rancho Obi-Wan.

Moroff & Scarif Stormtrooper Officer
Pao and Deathtrooper

Colour me delighted. :)

Not a recent acquisition but one that recently made it out of storage and onto display.

Picked up the two double packs today Rouge 1 Scarif Storm Trooper and Death Trooper packs. Kept away from the other one, I can see Poe is new but is the snowtrooper different from the single carded? I bought a couple of 6" for myself the death trooper and K-2SO. I'm a single carded figure collector and I said to myself when TFA came out I'll stick to the baddies for my collection but grab the lot for my son, problem is with Rouge one the single carded 3.75" baddies are puss, the good ones are in the double packs. I do like the stormtrooper maybe I will pick him up, is Kylo Ren a repack in the new Rouge One range? Will hopefully grab a Tie striker when the price crashes, the U wing looks like the quality of the X wing from last year. Would love to see some shots out of box of the tie striker, possibly a youtube review (Matt, missing your channel, Ill give you a thumbs up)

Although not TLJ, I was happy to pick this up for a heavy discount, down to $39.99, while at the Force Friday event at Toyco :)
