    I'd love to add the Beretta Model 12 to my collection. That's a great weapon.

    And yet it maintains a high market value, year in and year out. One can only conclude that what you hear is in error.

    On Shadow-Sentient

    I hear that once you see what it's really about, you find that it really isn't worth shit.

    I thought about getting a Sterling, but when Ozark Armory told me the price, I passed on it...

    I have a full size replica of a Stormtroopers blaster rifle hanging on my study wall.

    Just thought I'd post a link to the UK site I bought it from in case anyone was interested. They also do Solo's pistol and a few of the weapons from Aliens. (all are mostly wood and plastic,but they look cool )

    Relics prop weapons

    I spent the first half of my life trying to convince mom that my comic book collection would be worth something someday, but to no avail. About 15 years ago, I sold off the most expensive books to a local comic shop for several thousand dollars, enough to buy a new car and finally get my own apartment. But I still had a few thousand low and mid-range books, so I suggest to my mother that we have a garage/comic book sale and put an ad in the local paper. Needless to say, we had an incredible number of collectors show up, many of whom were hoping to find a box of golden age books for a nickel I guess. Anyway, I was still selling steadily throughout the afternoon, until another collector came along and offered to buy everything that was left, for about 800 bucks. My mother just happened to walk into the garage to find change for somebody buying a knicknack for a dime, just as this guy was laying $800 cash in my hand, ten bucks a time! The look on my mother's face was beyond priceless.

    I have a sad and tragic history collecting Star Wars figures. I had the complete (UK available) set of original figures with about 20 stormtroopers, several imperial guards, a few of the ships, all the guns, all the backing cards. I used to set them up in little scenes from the movies. Jabba's Palace here, Imperial forces gathering there, Hoth, etc, etc.

    I came home to find my mother had given them all to my toy murdering cousins. Naturally I flipped.

    She gave me some mother speak babble about me being 15 and too old to play with toys. I told her they weren't toys they were collectors items.

    I got my revenge though when I showed her the sort of prices all that now blasted plastic and burned cardboard are going for.

    I now collect cenobites and tortured soul figures...I think i've just figured out why. (though the other half doesn't like them)

    Could be worse I guess, at least I didn't get the Norman Bates figures.

    Both, actually. There are cardboard inserts with pictures on them, but I don't use them.

    Here it is:

    I chose to populate it with both vintage and modern figures.
    Nice . I remember that one.
    There was a complete cardboard one as well that I used to have (different design), but I think it only came out in Europe, and is very rare now. I wish I still had it!

    If so, is the Death Star the plastic or cardboard one?
    Vintage.
