Last week I messaged Rocky on Facebook after I saw a few pictures of his collection posted. He has one of the most amazing collections and displays that I have ever seen for Star Wars. After seeing some of these pictures, my collection suddenly seems trivial and mild.
I even went so far as to show these to my wife so that she could see that my collection was not that big after all. lol. This display is as I said amazing and it just keeps getting better! Notice the multi colored LED lights!
These display cases are made up of multiple collection of these acrylic display cases as shown below. These are made by a guy named Paul Hoffmann that is out of Toronto. I am still looking for a web page or contact for Paul if anyone has one, please message me.
Here is a set of 6 of these where Rocky is starting another section for his minifigures. I have been struggling with where and how to display these minifigures as close to 1000 star wars figures if not a trivial task!
Here are more pictures of his collection. The square footage of these displays is just incredible! Right click on the images to see in another window if you are going to click on them.
How super cool is this item. Someone was lucky enough to get two of these in one bag when they found theirs. I was recently made aware of this figure by a collector friend a few weeks ago and I thought that this would make a nice item in someones collection. This has to be limited to one or two copies tops. ANd would you believe that this just showed up on eBay here.
I found this here on eBay. According to the auction seller.
“There is “2” LEGO gold C3PO minifigures in one Lego polybag! It was a Lego factory error, this bag is extremely rare!”
I do not think that you would want to open this as it would then just be two figures. 🙂
Thanks for looking at this super item and I hope you enjoyed it.
Two days in a row with really hard to find figures. This rare figure just showed up on eBay. I have not been able to track one of these down, so if anyone has one, please contact me at email@example.com
you can see this here on eBay. As the seller states, this was a promotional minifigure given away at Lego Fanwelt 2012 convention in Cologne Deutschland.
I saw this minifigure on eBay this past week and it took me a while, but I located the image that a reader sent me with this minifigure about a year ago. I have also seen this on another post as well from a user on Flickr, but I cannot find it today. If anyone can point me to it, please do.
Here is the listing on eBay of the current minifigure. See it here
So I am asking for help if anyone knows the origin of this figure.
The reader received this figure from the Lego directly, but I had thought that this figure was generally given to people when they received 10,000 supporters on the Lego ideas site. I had also thought that it was just the torso that was sent. That is what I saw on the Flickr page if I remember correctly. That would explain why the one on eBay does not have the hat. 🙂 But I think I like the hat on it!
