As my wife is well aware, I am a huge sucker for geek related collectable toys. I would say that the two 18 gallon storage bins full of Star Wars toys are proof of that. I also have a separate bin for random items I have gathered over the years. Since I have been married I have been very selective of what I buy and since we have had kids everything is subject to budget limitations. With the exception of toys for the kids, which I am always excited about when it comes to action figure, I really do not buy many toys for myself anymore.
As time goes on and our lives become less stressful financially I start to look more at these fun little treats. Although Animockery Studios full-time is still a distant goal I think about my nerded out work den and the neat stuff I would like to place in said den. For the most part this is already covered but sometimes I come across an item that is an instant add-on to my wish list of geek goodies.
Sideshow Collectables creates products on a master level and each item seems to have a quality that is bound to please even the pickiest of collectors. Of course this sort of excellence comes at a price and unless you have a deep pocket book you are not going to get everything that they put out. For a guy like me, who is obviously has great love for anything fantasy; sci-fi or otherwise imaginative I would choose a single item with great care.
As a Star Wars fan I have had many favorites but only a few are near and dear to my heart at all times. Values like friendship, loyalty and courage are things that I view as great value and who best displays those traits more than the mighty Chewbacca? I was impressed by the Unleashed Star Wars figure so you can only imagine how impressed I was by Sideshow Collectables Chewbacca exclusive edition (pictured above)! This figure is not only large but has detail that brings it to life. I do not have a safe place for this at the moment but it has defiantly been added to the Geek Den wish list.
Thank you for reading,
Neat site! I like GentleGiantLTD, too. They have some pretty neat stuph that’s just slightly cheaper than the stuph here.
I have a love hate for sites like this since I am impressed by the cool products and craftsmanship but man those prices are high. I like the GentleGiantLTD, the prices are better and the stuff is super detailed. I take it you must like that Death Trooper Deluxe Statue?
Haven’t seen it. I quite looking some time ago cause I can’t afford the stuph any more. Maybe one day.
I think that WordPress should add a few new widgets; a donate and a wishlist. Nothing annoying but a little side note in case a reader really like you and wants to do something extra nice. Of course am only sort of joking.

Nice genres and good info on where to find pieces.
My specialty is Ouija and talking boards (including an original dating to 1896). Hey, somebody has to keep this uniquely American, artists and bizarre toys for posterity!. Not that I don’t have not the Pee Wee Herman and Ed Grimley dolls displayed in the living room with the ever-growing Doctor Who goodies.
I like the way your family thinks! Oh, dig GentleGiantLTD as well.
Must check out Sideshow Collectibles.
Sadly, just as Twindaddy, I am also bereft of the money that once flowed into the coffers of eBay.
We run a tight ship on finances here but when I get to buy a toy I get a serious one. I had a friend with some Pee Wee toys, they are super neat. My wife Joyce is nutters for Doctor Who, even wants a diamond ring with a Tardis etched in the band. Cuz shes a classy dame (no really she is, in my geek mind anyway).
