    Over the past couple of years, my collecting has taken on a new direction. I'm pretty-much only collecting the 1/6 scale figures, mainly from Sideshow and Hot Toys.

    They're kinda crazy-expensive, so I don't buy many (2-3 per year), but I'm really in love with the quality.

    I've done a few customs/kitbashes as well.


    My two most recent purchases have both been Leia. They're AMAZING figures!

    Anybody else collecting these or doing any 1/6 scale customs?

    They are indeed exquisitely detailed.

    We have two, a gift from a good friend. Asajj Ventress and the 212th Clone trooper.

    That's a VERY good way to phrase it.

    Very fitting!

    Ironically, I don't have a Sideshow TK (although I do have a TD), nor does Erin have a TI. I should work on that...

    I've wanted to do a display of Imperial figures with a 1/6 scale 501st Standard/banner. I've done one up in Photoshop, but I need to print it and built a stand for it.

    Yea ya should.

    I personally don't own a Sideshow yet (just preordered my first), but seeing as Idaho is a community property state.... half of Doug's collection is mine.
