A big thanks to Ben for not only hooking me up with Rose and Doris 3-pack, but also delivering it to me.  Great Trooper!

Hi Bob,
I got the frames at Ikea several years ago, but I am sure they have similar styles today.  Some come with Plexiglass and others with real glass.  I have both but generally I think the larger ones are Plexi.
The piano hinge is the key thing to keep the frame straight with the pressure spread out evenly for the whole upright side of the frame.  The back of the shadowbox is the same piece of press board that came with the frame.  I left it white, but you could paint it any color you like.
You can also make the box deeper to accommodate different styles of figures.  I have a couple that are only one to two inches deep, others that are up to four inches.

Hi JJ.  I am sure you have seen this picture before.  It is the shadowbox I built to present my entire loose vintage collection.  I used a picture frame with clear plexiglass from from Ikea, built a box behind it with cheap 1x2 wood strips, made the shelves from wood flooring strips and hinged the front with a long piano hinge.  I can send you the details if you want to try and make one for your figures.
It sure keeps the dust off and I think it shows them off really well.

I am up early this morning to dig out so we can make it to church.  Got another 20 cm of snow last night.  Still it is a gorgeous white Christmas.
All the best to everyone!

I got an email yesterday to say my two orders were shipped.  Today I got Rose and Snoke in my mail box.  Rey on Crait still to come.  Maybe tomorrow?

Hey Darth,
I went back to Walmart to pick up a BS Deathtrooper for you but, unfortunately, they were all gone today.

Scout Report / A Star Wars Suit for Christmas
« on: December 01, 2017, 07:03:20 PM »
Who wouldn't want to put on one of these marvelous suits on Christmas morning?

I know they were from an earlier Black Series wave but my local Walmart must have recently restocked as they weren’t there the other day.  Amongst the usual pegwarmers were multiples of the Emperors Red Royal Guard (with Cloth cape), Imperial Death Trooper and Ashoka Tano - all at $7.97 clearance price.

I picked up a second set of the Leia/Luke/DJ 3.75” line at Walmart this morning for $7.97 - same price as their clearance figures.  So the first set I picked up last week at $9.97 will be going back.  Saved myself $8

I picked up the latest 3.75" Last Jedi figures today at Walmart - Luke (Jedi Exile), DJ (Canto Bight) and General Leia.  I would have taken the last Rey but the card was so bent and curled that I rejected it.

Strange!  Not a particularly good deal when you work out the individual price for each set.  It's over $20 for the two packs, and nearly $60 each for the vehicles.  That's more than the regular price, isn't it?

Asking price reduced to $50.
