    I don't know, do you think Fedex would ship to my private island fortress? [face_thinking]

    I'd start my own line of statues and busts, not for sale, just for myself and to post pics of on the internet. I'd hire a few professionals and personally design some figures about the size of the Attakus statues. I'd make a Darth Maul, Darth Tyranus, Darth Vader, Darth Sidious, General Grievous, Grievous' Bodyguards, Emperor's Royal Guard, Jedi Luke, Qui-Gon Jinn, Young Obi-Wan, an Old Ben Kenobi, Boba Fett, Jango Fett, IG-88, Clone Commander, R2D2 and C3PO set, Yoda, Mace Windu, Preggo Padme, Bespin Leia, and, for the finale, a "custom" Darth Plageuis (how I picture him).

    I'd probably buy more expensive stuff (Code-3, GG, Sideshow, MR and the like) and get some really nice displays. Also I'd probably get more costumes, and get some nice manakins to display them on.

    I would finnaly get some onf the Sideshow, Gentle Giant, and Master Replicas stuff that I've been wanting, but were out of my spending range. And I would probably buy some Vintage figures as well.

    By "won the lottery" i assume you mean hit the jackpot...i am thinking a more then comfortable ammount
    here, lets say, after taxes, 20 million dollars was mine, lump sum.

    First I would set all my life necessities in order. Bills for House, cars, Family, Friends...then travel ect.
    Then, i would either buy a smaller home, or add a huge room to my house, thiswoudl be the display room
    I would finally have the room, time and funds to construct the Dioramas i have inside my head, as well as display my collection properly.
    If i won the lotto, I would be able to afford all the things i want. [face_good_luck]
    Right now i am on a tight budget, that barely allows me to buy any collectibles, forget about higher end collectibles and replicas. If i hit the big lotto, i would buy a life size R2, Movie props, original posters ect...

    My theory wouldnt change, id still buy what i want, only now id be able to afford "everything" i want.

    Fun topic!

    I'd upgrade from my 7" Unleashed line to the Kotobukiya Statuettes. Then I think I'd browse through Master Replicas a little more closely... Pick up a couple replica lightsabers, blasters and studio scale models. And maybe a helmet or two.

    Yeeeaaaahh...[face_thinking]

    most likely not. I don't have much more space for anything else.

    Being a rabid Yoda collector, I would buy one of those limited bronze Yodas for my house. I would have one giant room with all my prized pieces in glass cases and that piece would be in the middle of the room with all the framed posters lining the walls.
