I haven't actually taken collection pics in a while and I've changed a lot of things around.  But here's a few to start off with:

Vintage Star Wars, mostly from Empire





Medicom Clone Troopers: Tomax and Xamot, I never named the 501st troop

I only had six or seven vintage guys and of them the only two I knew were R2D2 and Lando, Skiff guard version.  I had Admiral Ackbar too but didn't know his name.  Empire is my favorite film of all time so that's where my collection really stems from, with a couple extras added in. Smiley

Here's a shot of the Joes as they sit in one of my cases.  I'll admit these aren't the best pics, my cases are not lighted ones  Undecided .  I'll try and get better shots and do a full feature in customs section when I get back in town.


 Rock N Roll, Cutter, Shipwreck (and Polly), Wild Bill, Hawk


Flint, Beachhead, Snow Job, Outback, Recondo, Tunnel rat

Man those Joes look amazing. I also just realized how much Wild Bill looks like the Construction Worker from the Village People  Grin


Seriously though, they look terrific

Pretty cool stuff.  Shipwreck is looking badass, but this former Sailor may be a bit biased. Wink

Been re-working my display and some of my vintage figures have taken over the top shelf in one of the cases.



*The Keaton Batman with the re-used Silverhawks action feature is one of my favs! Gotta love Kenner! Cheesy

I like the mixture of different figures you have got going there! I've got the same group shot of MOTUC as well. What is the in the background of the Masters shot?

Lion-O still looks pretty badass.  Used to have one that had a missing leg.  I'd love for this franchise to be picked up by Mattel and the 4H.
