Armada Super Star Destroyer arrived, what a huge and cool piece. Pretty sturdy, reasonably accurate (considering it is not a studio scale model), and with tons of beautiful details on top and underneath. I might try to get a better base for it in time, but for now it will do. Glad I got it, beautiful collectible:

Hot Toys 1:4 Darth Vader figure, an exceptional piece, quite accurate and really big. Very impressive in person, I like the beautiful details on the suit and helmet. The Anakin/Sebastian Shaw sculpt is amazing, but I will not use it. I chose this simple museum pose for the final display, also didn't take the cell batteries out of their small tray (don't care about lights), I only tested the secondary stand lights which works fine.

I used the steamer on the capes, they were originally very wrinkled, and will use it again one more time, but had to move fast to take the outdoor pics because raining was starting. A great figure, glad I decided to buy it, now hopefully Hot Toys will finally release their 1:4 Stormtrooper too.

Attakus 1/5 Darth Vader, a statue I wanted for a long time, and thanks to a nice collector, I finally got it and for a good price, just a bit more than the original MSRP in 2001. A superb piece:

Comparison with the small 1/10 Attakus Vader and with the 2 life size EFX helmets:

The most amazing Star Wars collection in the world gets more amazing! I'd love to have one of the Attakus statues some day. Congratulations!

Thank you for the kind words. :cheers Attakus made very nice statues, some of them are quite affordable even today.

Some cool additions to the collection. I actually thought the Hot Toys was a full scale piece for a few moments, until I noticed the background. Pretty cool.

Thank you. The Hot Toys Vader figure is quite amazing, reasonably accurate and very imposing - hope the pleather suit will last. The Attakus is one of the pieces I wanted for years, but not for $1000 or more as they were sold online over time, glad I got it for much less.

Received these days the old CinemaCast Darth Vader statue, released in 1994, being the first "high end" Star Wars statue. You can see it behind George Lucas in old interviews, though I looked for a photo or a clip of that and couldn't find one - need to watch more old interviews with him. Anyway a very cool statue, quite heavy and big (about 1/6 scale).

I believe it is seen in the long documentary on the old dvd releases detailing the creation of all three films.

Excellent!! That's one of the few "collectible" pieces I bought way back when -- and have kept.
