    Those are parting lines. You can see a sculpt here with parting lines:

    And silcone mold like this is usually made:

    Very cool, Brian. I know you were excited to land this deal. Now you need some production ones for a side by side. Looking forward to seeing these at NYCC. :)

    Saweet, Brian! Super cool piece and good to see you get a name. I'm not surprised at who helped supply it. Your pics always make my head spin, bigbang. LOL

    I agree on both counts. That Astrale has an awesome Art Deco styling to it and the rifle is one of my favorite rifles. I love that stock. Kudos!!

    My girlfriend sent me this. Apologies if posted (I looked but didn't see it in any of the forums). I think it's hysterical.

    Thanx guys! I haven't been at it as long as most and the collection is only a fraction of some but I'm super happy so far. Looking forward to the next additions.

    Great pickups, Bri. I love the rifle, though, you know me, I'd have had to have taken the box. LOL Love the colors on the SW gun.

    Wish I knew you were going back. I may have taken the ride instead of having him ship my stuff.

    KILLER piece, Bri! I have had some VERY minor props in the past. I had a half of Krayt bone, a piece of the Lars homestead dome, and some pieces of the skiff. I sold the bone and house to fund another piece. I've always thought about one day owning a piece of the DS and a tower. Neat pieces to be sure. Kudos!!!

    Hello all,

    I moved recently and unfortunately for the time being I don't have the space I used to have so my toys went in storage. :( I did pick up some nice pieces recently but the deal wasn't finished until after I packed up. So, I received these recently:



    I figured I'd take some pics before they also go into storage.

    HUGE thanx to bigbang and HUGER thanx to doc_atomic for introducing me and letting me tag along when he went to visit. I was able to score ALL of this from bigbang and he was a pleasure to deal with. I landed a few pieces that have been on list for a bit. The Roclet Pistol is just a box, for now, but I figured I should jump on it since the gun is 1000x easier to find.

    Enjoy!

    Really cool rocket. Not $8,500 loose cool to me, but still one of the coolest rockets I've seen. What's that make a boxed one, $15-20,000??

    Finally where we are today: March 2011
    I should mention that the ARM box is my only repro. The rest are original.

    And one more piece I'm SUPER excited about.





    1956 re-release insert for the 1933 Kong (one of my favorite films) with custom frame. I know it's not a robot but I figure this can get a pass as I've seen movie posters posted before.

    I'm really loving this hobby. I hope you enjoy the pics.

    Hello all,

    I've had a collection thread for a while but my robots and such got lost with all my SW stuff so I decided to move all the NON SW here. Here's the stages of my collection over the 16 months I've been collecting.

    Congrats, Doc!! Hope you guys had a perfect day, crappy weather aside. Looking forward to some pics.

    Steal isn't the word. I would have probably bid double that. I like that, a lot, and bootlegs were always a favorite of mine in Star Wars. Kudos to the winner.

    Wonderful! I just love the art. Any extra pics of the ship itself?

    I LOVE the box art. The toy I'm not 100% into but the box is fantastic. Please do post more pics when you get a minute, Marco.
