Nice displays Lu! Didn't know you collect Star Wars. I like how the X-Wings are hanging on the wall. And your shelves are very organized too.

While GI Joes have the best looking figs, Star Wars have the best looking vehicles!

Nice collection! Some Star Wars army builders... but no Cobra army builder  ???  :cobra:

That is very debatable. It was not always like that but I think I know what you meant. I had the privilege of owning both a pretty extensive Star Wars and gi joe vehicle collection, and I can tell you that the race is tight in the new era of toys, but back in the old 80's, Star Wars vehicles were no match for the level of detail-to scale and great playvalue the Joe vehicles had. Again, one can say that Star Wars toys are older than the 80's Joes, but then again keep in mind that Gi joe was around since the 60's and boy do the vehicles still stand out to this day.

So without meaning to take too much room in Prince's post, I'll conclude that this opens an excellent topic for future discussion.... :)

@ Martin, yeah well army building vintage Joes can be a bit expensive. I have a nice army of CG and Vipers in the 25th collection but i'll pass on the vintage. I have 4 or fice cobra trooper an officer though, not shown in picture

@ Latinjoe22, I agree with you, joe vehicles are just awesome. nothing compared to SW, comparing both vintage collections. I think that modern joe a just ahead of modern SW, only by a nose.

HOLLY SCHNIKEY"S !!!

If i collected loose, thats exactly the way i would display them. Mass quantaties close together.

Just "" RAHHHHHHHHHHHHH " boom/ IN YOUR FACE ,

Makes the person looking @ em gotta take a step back and take it all in.

P.S The rebel skystricker is out of this world. You have a nice cross over them going. Leia with an AK. NICE!!!
