As most of you know by now, I have a collection. At the moment it’s mostly Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, X-Men, and Pirates of the Caribbean. And Muppets. I think I collect because I like to be able to look at the action figure or statue and remember how…transported I was by that particular character or by that moment in the movie.
The pictures here are of three of my latest acquisitions. The first one is an X-Man, the Rogue Classic Statue by Bowen Designs, a limited edition of 800 figures worldwide. I’m a big fan of Rogue, and not just because she’s Gambit’s girlfriend. She has this crazy power where she tends to kill whoever she touches, which makes her a REALLY interesting heroine.
The second figure is the Ringwraith Polystone Statue from Sideshow Collectibles, this one a limited edition of 1000. I adore the Lord of the Rings books and movies, and the Ringwraiths are some of the coolest baddies anywhere. They never speak, but we just KNOW they’re bad news because of the way they look.
The last figure is called Fall of the Empire – Ewoks vs. Stormtrooper, a Polystone Diorama. It’s also from Sideshow Collectibles, and is one of 750 ever made. While I’m not a huge Ewok fan (okay, they mostly bug me), I do like the image of the three cute little guys taking down the bad ass stormtrooper with stone knives and spears while his blaster waves around uselessly.
Have you purchased anything cool lately? Which of my three latest do you like the best? Or is this all just craziness? (Don’t worry, I’ve been told that before.)
