Your home is on fire, there is only time to save one figure (hypothetically) which do u grab on the way out the door.

Can be for any reason.

Mine is original han solo, sure they made better figs but that one would mean the most to me if it got destroyed.
Comments?

Stupid question, because screw the figures. I would worry more about making sure that my pets and family were out of the house before I worried about toys. Star Wars figures can be replaced, a family member or a charished pet can't. ;) :D

As silly as this may sound- Bespin Luke & vader. Why- Because it's in my Diorama that took me 4 1/2 fustrating months to build that I would not want to build again.

Well, there are many other things that I would grab first (I even planned for this sort of thing and I have a big metal box with all of my writings in it and things I have collected from my travels around the world). However, if we are speaking about SW stuff, I would probably grab my ROTJ Japanese movie posters.

Poodoo no, I'd go down with my figures! Mostly because I'm no where near an exit. :D

If you've got insurance, yes, they can all be replaced if you lost them, just gotta make sure your insurance would also cover those. ;)

I think saving pets, or family is obvious, but that wasn't his question. :rolleyes:

I'd grab my vintage yoda with brown snake MOC.

probably TA anakin(if I had it), but the most important thing would have to be my family, just like JJB said family can't be replaced.

No problem, all of my figs are in a gallon-sized zip-lock bag, except for the couple that are on display, and right now it's the Acklay, Nexu, Goenosion w/ massif, and Shak Ti.

It would have to be my POF2 Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi figure, since it was my very first Star Wars figure.

Just one figure, tough . . .

I'd save my Commtech Hooded Leia because I had to crawl on my hands and knees through a desert, wade through the ocean, and climb a mountain to get it (okay not exactly, I had to drive 2 hours to Toronto).

I know it's not a "figure," but I would grab my Millenium Falcon from when I was a kid. All my figures had adventures in there, including GI Joes. That thing can take any toy somewhere else!

Last thing on my mind would be my SW figures.

The question was posed hypothetically - what figure would you take if you could only take one?

I'd take my Vintage ESB R2-D2 w/sensor scope MOC.

Some cool answers, most of you understood what I was asking.
For arguments sake, dump the fire aspect.
New legislation states u can only own one item , whats it be?

How about this.....

You are being evicted from your house, and you can only take ONE Star Wars FIGURE (just 1 action figure)! What would it be?

OR

You come home and your wife is divorcing you, the cops say that you can only take 1 Star Wars figure with you.

OR

You are home alone and you accidentally flood the house. You have time to save one Star Wars action figure.

OR

If you could keep only 1 Star Wars action figure, which one would it be?

OR

lol

But seriously, It took me about 3 years to get my Freeze Frame Sandtrooper. I actually ended up paying about $8.57 for it (long story). I used to look them up all the time on ebay. There was NO WAY that I would pay $100.00 for an action figure. For years I would go to ebay and type in Freeze Frame Sandtrooper. Then I would watch as anywhere from 0-3 of them would pop-up. I watched them go for $75.00-$120.00!

So, given my patients and the LONG years of waiting, I will have to say...

If I had to give-up all of my SW stuff, except 1 figure, I would keep my Freeze Frame Sandtrooper (MOMC).;)

Easy one this, the Nexu. It says my name so how could I not grab that first? Matter of fact I already put it right at the front of the shelving unit so I can just reach out and grab it should the unthinkable happen in any way. The rest of it is just plastic. Plastic can be replaced any time. There's always someone willing to sell....... :evil:

Depends, does this fire take place before or after Ephant Mon is released?;)

If it happened tonight, I would grab my Removable Helmet Vader. I wanted him made when I was a kid and he is still my all-time favorite figure (until Ephant Mon, at least - who I've wanted for just as long).

well, assuming all the really important people/things were already safe, and I had a safe chance to go back in and grab ONE collectible, it'd probably be my AF e-wing. Not 'cuz I like it so much, but since some moron just paid $500+ for one on eBay last week, I figure I'd sell it and replace a couple dozen of my other AFs with the money.

But, since my collection is on the third floor of my house, there's virtually NO way I'd ever get all the way up there and back out alive in a fire. I really do need to get one of those chain ladders to go out the window up here. It's a deadly drop out the window to the back yard, and not much better out the front or sides.

Now I know which one I'd save. A tornado went through my yard recently and (After getting my pets to safety) I rushed up and grabbed my TIE Bomber. So that is the one I'd save. :D

I have only one figure from when I was a kid. Bespin Luke with yellow hair. That would be the figure I would get.

I'd just grab my Action Fleet E-wing, then I could sell it on E-bay for $510 and replace most of my entire collection.

I have so much SW swag hidden in every nook and cranny of my pad, the sheer volume of it would send me into a delusional spiral of panic and I would probably end up going up in flames with all of my stuff, silently whimpering that none of it could be saved by the ravages of the flames.

ONE FREAKIN FIGURE?!?! I suppose there's a vintage Jawa missing an arm sitting on my desk, right by the door. I'd grab him on the way out...


ROLLO!
