    Oh lol, posted it in another thread but you already did it. Looks nice though. I'll be putting her on wires and in that Mary Poppins configuration if I get one.
    I'm thinking about recreating that Rey/Kylo versus Praetorian scene and trying to figure out how much this would cost. Kylo, Rey and at least two praetorians so I can alternate the heads.

    Have you seen this Luke by the way:https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/star-wars-luke-skywalker-deluxe-version-hot-toys-903204/

    I want one!

    this weekend i got TLJ Rey from Hot Toys.

    like all Hot Toys, she's stupidly cool and she comes with all sorts of fun accessories (including porgs!)

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.19.24 AM.png

    standard exterior box art is nice as usual.

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.19.33 AM.png

    interior box art was a happy surprise. love the contrast of the bright background!

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.19.42 AM.png

    always well-packaged/wrapped for shipping. you can see she comes with lots of extra hands an extra arm that makes her light saber light up, her blaster, staff, and she's got a base with two different looks, also a "motion" lightsaber that looks like she's swinging even if she's in a static position.

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.19.52 AM.png

    close up on the extra arm: there's a battery compartment here that gets covered by her arm wrap. it's such a tiny and delicate mechanism. TFA Kylo Ren has the same thing, but with the world's tiniest zipper on his sleeve.

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.20.03 AM.png

    all of her cool weapons. the light saber blade can be removed to put in the "light up" version, or if you want her to just hold the unactivated hilt. unfortunately she doesn't have anywhere to hang it on her costume that i can tell.

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.20.37 AM.png

    it will take some teasing and relaxing to get the draping parts of her costume to fall right (they always come out of the box a little crinkly).
    if it doesn't relax, i'll steam it a little. Kylo Ren's costume is actually wired so you can position it, but i think that was a bad design choice because the wires are so tiny they break easily. glad they didn't do that here.

    Screen Shot 2018-07-29 at 11.25.34 AM.png

    the porgs are cool because they actually have removable feet that you can position in different ways.
    they can also come off the plastic bases if you want to give one to Chewie to eat.

    all-in-all, she's pretty dang awesome.
    still don't know if i'll get Kylo Ren or wait until we see what the ix version might look like.
    tough call. : D

    These bandai toys are impressives.
    I was searching some prices at amazon from Germany. They cost between 250-400 euros!!!

    Yes, the old one from TFA (the one you've already posted on page 1 or 2). Thank you!

    these are actually Hot Toys (a Chinese company). Bandai is in Japan.
    but yes, that doesn't change the fact that they are very expensive! XD

    okay, i'll try! : D

    Oh yeah. I was wrong.
    I was comparing both at amazon. Hot Toys are other level (much more beatiful and well made), bandai was much more simple and very cheaper also.

    here's just some super quick snaps. sorry about the way the lighting washes all the contrast out.

    the costume isn't quite right at all: the drape of the fabric is wrong, the way its layered is wrong, and the cut in the back is wrong.
    that said, the hood is really cool and all the pleats are very nice.
    the TLJ costume looks much more accurate.

    Thanks for the overview! Looks great, I'm glad you're happy with the purchase.

    Have you ever posted pics of your full collection? If not, I think it's time. :p

    unfortunately i sorta kinda recently moved and so much of my stuff is still packed while i quibble over purchasing new furniture (which i need desperately).
    here are some old pics just to give you a tiny flavor:

    my DX Batman in his custom cape (in the snow--to the horror of "collectors" everwhere ~ hahahaha):

    batsnow01.jpg batsnow03.jpg snowfight.jpg

    my awesome Carlito's Way Al Pacino having a chat with Bane:

    seriousawesome.jpg

    Bruce and Alfred and the BatArmoury:

    BatArmory18.jpg

    Dr. Quinzel and the Joker in her office (which i built meticulously--perhaps insanely):

    finaloffice01.jpg

    and probably one of my favorite 1/6 acquisitions, this insane nazi car:

    06drinking.JPG outside02.JPG

    i have gangster pics of the Joker dressed like Dillinger and Harley his moll ~ i will try to fine them later. XD


    ughnnnn.

    You were making some of the "sets"/accessories yourself? If so - very impressive! I thought you can just get those things from somewhere. ;) Well, you probably can, but DIY stuff is way cooler.

    lots of little pieces are definitely sourced, but i also made tons of things from scratch or out of random other stuff.
    at one time i had a really cool "hospital" room with a custom built adjustable hospital bed, a wheel chair, and tons of medical supplies that i meticulously pieced together. like i said, thinking back on it, it was kind of insane. i literally built an entire box of individually wrapped sterile gauze pads. now i wonder: why??? XD
    i think making tiny things in this scale appealed to some compulsive part of my nature and i was under a lot of stress at the time, so it was relaxing.

    i was working on some really cool custom things when i had to pack everything away.
    now i have no idea whether i will ever get back to them.

    just some quick picts in bad lighting:

    re: Kylo Ren Ben ~ i can't believe i almost didn't buy this. he's ridiculously cool; the headscuplt is 100x more times amazing than the crummy promo pictures and as much as i don't like the cape, it's amazing the way it goes on and how it feels. his whole costume is much better than the one they constructed for TFA and it's actually removable (TFA's wasn't).

    the white thing on his neck is the very thin packaging foam all HT figures are wrapped with (to avoid chaffing, etc.). i just forgot to remove it before i took the pictures.

    Leia is gorgeous: a beautiful tribute to Carrie Fisher (my bad photos cannot do her justice).

    IMG_0546.jpg

    she comes with the tiniest HT accessory i have ever seen! : D

    my Solo family is complete. now i'm just waiting on dirty old man Luke, who should be arriving in the next couple of months. XD
