Cool post man! My first figs were R2D2 and a Stormtrooper...I still have them, they are destroyed, old, yellowing,loose limbed and artoo's label is all ripped off.
My last figure...I'm not positive, but I think it was either the Imperial Dignitary, Luke Stormie or Teebo.
First vehicle : X-wing
last...I cannot remember, possibly the Interceptor.

First playset: Creature Cantina!
Last Jabba (it was considered a playset, sorta)

First: From what my mom tells me: Chewbacca - I was 2 or so when I found him in the front yard. I wouldn't put it down, so they started buying me more, creating an obsession.

Last: Jeez, I can't remember...might have been Luke Stormtrooper.

First figure was Yoda.
Last were Klaatu and Admiral Ackbar, in '88. I found both at a Kee Bee's store at two for a $1.00. I wish I had had the sense to buy the B-Wing pilot as well.

First "vehicle" was the CAP-2. This was the SW toy I got. I've no clue how or where my mom got it because it just showed up one day. It would be other six months before I got Yoda and close to a year before I got a figure that could fit in the thing.
Last "vehicle" was the Desert Sail Skiff. Saw it in a store with Droid figures in '86. Only time I'd see Droid figures and the last time I'd see vehicles in a store.

My first playset was the Ewok Village, Xmas of '83.
And my last playset was Jabba the Hutt, Xmas of '84.

Well, there are some that I know for sure (*), while others are guesses (?).

FIGURES:
First - Jawa (cloth cape), 1978 *
Last - Lando General, 1985 or '86 *

PLAYSETS:
First - Land of Jawas, 1978 or '79 *
Last - Jabba the Hutt, 1983 ?

VEHICLES:
First - Landspeeder, 1979 ?
Last - the orange Mini Rig, 1983 or '84 ?

I started buying figures and vehicles in 1989 to finish my collection, so I didn't wait as long as others did to begin again.

I haven't collected vintage toys since the line was discontinued, so all of this is from my childhood. Still have all this stuff too!

Best guesses:

FIGURES:
First - Jawa '78 or '79
Last - (Droids) Sise or Tig Fromm maybe (POTF) Amanaman or Stormtrooper Luke

VEHICLES:
First - X-Wing most likely
Last - A-Wing / Tatooine Skiff / Ewok Battle Wagon (Pretty sure I got these at Christmas in the same year) My dad did find an R/C Sandcrawler at Goodwill, that might have been my last.

PLAYSETS:
First - Land of the Jawas (cardboard sandcrawler)
Last - Jabba's Dungeon (same thing as the Droid Factory but grey plastic)

ROLE PLAY:
First - Probably Han Solo blaster
Last - Chewbacca Bandolier strap/figure holder on clearance

My first figure was Darth Vader. My last figure was Luke in Stormtrooper Gear. I remember I went through a case of POTF figures and found that Luke. Sometimes I wish I can go back in time and get all those old POTF cases.

First was early bird special. No, I do not have it complete - but I do have most of the figures.

"Last" was yesterday when I picked up a holo Luke. I plan on my next last being some of the OTC line!

First vehicle was definitely an x-wing.

I went with my mom to a garage sale when I was little. I picked out this cool looking green dinosaur for some .25

Turns out -it was actually a vintage Dewback!

That's a pretty amazing coincidence, my first figure was also an Artoo and the last figure I saw on store shelves was Barada (although I didn't buy him at the time since I was into GI Joe by then :frus: ).

First Figure --- Princess Leia (ANH)
Last Figure --- Lando in Disguise (ROTJ)

First Ship ---- TIE FIGHTER.
Last Ship ---- MTV mini-rig

First Playset -- Land of the Jawas.
(Grandparents bought this. And it cost me the RC Sandcrawler! :sur:
Even so, I loved this one. The pod. The shooting Artoo lever.)
Last Playset -- Imperial Attack Base

*** I never had any of the roleplay stuff.
