Hi all
my name is nigel and i come from England, i have recently discovered the wonderful world of faceplate collecting by accident via an ebay listing (the XBA website was on a listing for a custom made plasma grenade from halo)
so i signed up and sold my soul to the faceplate gods and started with these

rainbow 6 vagas 2 and lost planet

i also have a call of duty 2 (which is on my 360) i know its more than likely to be a fake (didn't pay much for it, thankfully)

my main source is ebay and i try to keep to a limit, i have some others coming, i'll post them when i get them

i look forward to any help and experience you guys can give

iam also thinking about doing some customs so expect to see me asking all sorts of questions on that thread too

cheers
nigel

UPDATE
these 3 came yesterday (the postman must love me)

thanks for the warm welcome guys, i have updated the original post with 3 more faceplates:)

with regards to my wishlist, if i haven't got it then i want it:)

if anyone has any doubles that want a good home then let me know i'm sure we could strike a deal for them

i have been asking about faceplates in my local game stores with no luck, of course the staff say 'i have this and that'

keep checking back for updates
