    Ok, moved a few things around a little bit a la Dave's "Display Feng Shui". It really does make a difference and when I move and have my proper office back, I'm flying him down here to help.

    Don't forget to go back and see the update at the end of page 14!

    Also, I think a clear bulb is needed. Going to go hunt one down unless anyone has a spare.

    I need to pick up a frame with anti-glare glass. That plastic cover makes it hard to take a good picture.

    Clear flash bulb? I might have one... I'll check when I get home...

    Very nice, Chris.

    I've not seen a flash reflector w/ a daylight gel before.

    Is it a hard piece of plastic that snugs up under the lip of the reflector?

    Thanks Mike!

    The blue is actually just the reflection of the blue glass on the bulb on the reflector surface. I do have some other reflectors from Canon Model Y flashes with the reflector covers though.

    I'd suggest leaving the daylight bulb casting the blue reflection, as Kenobi's lightsaber color was blue.

    Well, once again, not a lightsaber. I am going to have to change the name of this thread eventually.

    I was able to pick this up and I am just waiting for it to arrive.

    How much does an MGC compare to a real Mk 4 Sterling ... price wise?

    I guess it depends on where you live. Mine was less than the one that sold in the junkyard a month or two ago.

    MPP variant has arrived to work towards completing my vintage lightsaber collection. I had to do some cleanup, but it cleaned up nicely.

    I will take some pictures later, but the new flash variations are: one step emitter, flat washer emitter, large B port, translucent button, translucent clamp sleeve, black straight edge sidebars, slim opening on clamp, and black tripod mount without rings.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also managed to pick up an eagle counter and a new scope.

    Super impressive Chris. Are all the single step shrouds vintage? Incredible display.

    Thanks Ben! They are all vintage single step shrouds. The top one came as a two step, but I purchased a single step shroud from someone who was using their flash for a Boba Fett blaster.

    Another not only Star Wars update. I wanted to rotate some things out of storage, so I picked up a Detolf display case.

    Top shelf has my RS stormtrooper stunt helmet.

    Second shelf has my production made/screen used Harry Potter wand and coins. A screen used, printed seal Hogwars letter is also on the way. The wands at the bottom are all replicas.

    Third is a little random, but has my Blade Runner blaster and holster, Ennis House trivet, glass, Maltese Falcon, and Jurassic Park cane top and rapper claw.

    Fourth has my Jerry Siegel signed Action Comics #1, fortress of solitude crystal and HT Superman.

    It feels good to see some new props once in a while.

    It'd be nice to get a detolf without having to pay double...nearest one to hear is about 5 hours away, they'll gladly ship it - for $100....

    Yours look pretty good though. I'll have to look into custom display shelves when i build my house

    That is part of the reason I haven't picked any up before now, and it's only half an hour to my IKEA. My sister in law was going there, so I asked her to pick me up two of them. She came back with two boxes, but that's just one display case! Free shipping so I can't really complain.

    Oh man gotta finish my ST helmet...
    @Edraven99 it's FUN to have different movie props! BONUS - you look less insane to friends.

    Though lately the only thing friends care about is the Meeseeks box.

    Love it! I only have branched out very slightly from Star Wars stuff myself... but I love that Superman stuff. I'd love to get that potion book and some wands too.

    I should have said that it was a 1992 reprint with an authentic signature (signed them in 1993). I would never have gotten an original signed.

    I have a Todd McFarlane signed Spider-Man 1 on display - not because having a signed mcfarlane anything is a big deal, but because my dad bought it for me on a whim. It was the first time he gave up buying me sports crap and came to grips with “my kid is into movies and comics...”
