The full metal Imperial pattern custom stand made by my talented friend Matt Black arrived, and the Merr Sonn Power 5 Heavy Imperial blaster is now ready for battle :)

The HCG Terminator 2 CPU Brain Chip arrived, pretty nice resin piece with light up acrylic tube. There is no comparison with the cool metal and glass Russ Replicas (RB Replicas) version, still I got this one in a good deal. Maybe later a comparison shot of the two.

Hollywood Collector's Gallery 1:1 Endo arm arrived. Stunning piece! HUGE and heavy, the blue lights really add up to the overall display. Wanted one for years, but never at the high price the Sideshow version was going for (the Sideshow Endoarm didn't have lights and clear tube). This thing is so big it barely fit on my shelf. But is fantastic!



















And a short video of the HCG Endoarm, HCG Brain Chip, and the comparison between the HCG & Russ Replicas Brain Chip:

My 3 unlicensed / fan made Star Wars Imperial blasters:

- Merr Sonn Power 5 Heavy Blaster (metal Mauser Denix replica)
- RS Prop Masters "Pugman" ESB Stunt Stormtrooper Blaster (resin)
- Sterling Stormtrooper blaster conversion (deact. SMG)

I also own a Master Replicas Stormtrooper blaster shown in another youtube video.






And some recent acquisitions:

- Original blue cap radiation dosimeter used by Imperial officers as code cylinders:






Comparison with the regular radiation dosimeter/code cylinder (the ones used by General Tagge & Chief Bast):









- And a set of quite accurate AT-AT Driver helmet tusks:






Comparison with the Elvistrooper versions present on my white Laws AT-AT Driver helmet:





Star Wars Chronicles 1st edition arrived. Such a fantastic book, it is HUUGE, has over 300 pages, and comes in a very large format with a special cover. The seller also included a cool The Art of Star Wars magazine for free:












Amazon review:


This is the ultimate must-have for the Star Wars fanatic. Spendy, but definitely worth it, the Star Wars Chronicles is a big, beautiful book that comes in a gold and black box. The Chronicles cover the beloved trilogy of movies in thousands of behind-the-scenes and up-close photographs, many you've never seen before. From the creation of all the aliens to the details of Boba Fett's jet pack, you'll find fascinating facts, drawings, paintings, and photos to pore over endlessly. Each detail is lovingly presented for the appreciation of serious fans, and the whole package will be a delight to collectors.
