I have a similarly stupid sizable collection myself

 

I recently picked up this http://www.amazon.co...00180550&sr=8-7 for storage and it's great, although with all the ships I own (60+ once wave 4 ships) I might have to keep the Tantive in its own box.  I could probably cram it all if I wanted but one of the reasons I bought this monster case was to have space to optimize my storage to facilitate quick setup and cleanup.

I already have a few ships but this is basically me set now to run games for people at our club - very few currently play so I thought that if I was able to provide a nice variety of ships for both sides, it would be fun. Plus even with shipping, all that stuff was a *lot* cheaper than buying here in the UK.

I am slowly working my way up in ship count for both factions for that very reason.  I also keep some interesting prebuilt lists in my Plano that showcase the fun and game mechanics and save any confusion with listbuilding for a new player.

 

We have a growing community of players here with their own collections, but I would rather have enough ships on hand so that if someone new rolls up, the conversation can go like this...

 

"Whoa, that looks like fun!"

"It sure is, you wanna play a game with me?"

"Sure!  Wait, I dont have any ships to play with though..." [Sad face]

"Well it just so happens that I have enough ships that you can play anything that you want, all you have to do is pick a side.  Still loyal to the Evil Empire, or are you Rebel Scum?"

"Haha, Awesome!  I'm Rebel Scum then I guess, can I play as Han Solo?" [Happy face]

 

...Aaand they're hooked.

Happy Birthday to you! :)   What? It isn't even your birthday? :blink:

 

Everytime I get a parcel with X Wing miniatures I treat it as a birthday present.... I am now 11 years old in "X Wing" years! ;)

Hahaha I know that feeling. I recently won a $200 gift certificate on a game store and went crazy with x wing. (Two more B wings behind.) Officially ready for wave 4!

HOLY CRAP. That's worth £373 at RRP in the UK ($500 ish?), I envy the fun you are gonna have unboxing all that! :D

That's over $700 worth here in New Zealand. That's a BIG box of goodies.

But since I ordered from the States, it came in at about 50% RRP. Sometimes it's worth it.  :)
