The Nerd Nook itself is somewhat of a newbie this week. I purchased an Ikea glass case that I see so many other collectors using. I'm planning to add a light source as well as purchase risers to increase the usable space without restricting the ability to see the figures inside. I got the idea from this collection being featured over at Cool and Collected.
The next Newbies this week represent the start of my loose, vintage Star Wars collection (I'd love to go for them all MOC but I would not only be broke but burried in figures).
IG88 and Boba Fett
Dengar and Imperial Commander
I'm pretty excited about these new guys. Love these vintage figures.
Next on Newbies is a new addition to my ever growing Super Powers collection. As I have said before Batman is my favorite Super Powers figure (Superman a close second). So I have set out to collect as many of the card variations (foriegn included) that I can. This week I was lucky enough to add this guy:
To most people this just looks like another Super Powers Batman BUT if you flip it over there is a sticker which shows it to be the UK palitoy cardback. I am definitely excited to have added this guy to my collection!
So that wraps up a pretty busy week for the Nerd Nook. New layout and a new collection underway! Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my new additions.
"The empire will compensate you if he dies....put em in!" .....couldn't resist what with adding Boba Fett n all.
