Here are my 12" figs. Granted its not alot of them as I didnt collect alot of them, some are vintage and some are newer. Also put some of the other large stuff with them.

I really like the fact that you're not freaked out about mixing newer with older figures. Nice little collection! I can't afford 'em all either, and don't have the space. With the 12-inch line it's always been about what strikes me as being "the coolest."

Everything said and done, I really love(d) the Hasbro/Kenner figures. Sure, there were a lot of duds, but so much fun... just look at that shelf. :)

Great thing about Sideshow doing 12-inch now is that you can pick up Hasbro stuff for next to nothing. I just scored a boxed (but I opened it) Sandtrooper for like $7 a few weeks ago. Can't beat that.

Cool beans dude, not sure about the Rancor but it's a funny addition. But man, look at the size of Dooku's head compared to Han Trooper's! Hasbro gave us like 8 years of that megamelonization!

I bought the newer ones on clearance for about 5 bucks or less. The two POTJ ones I did pay full price for because of the Exclusiveness. I am missing the vintage Darth Vader and IG-88, I dont remember which box I had them in.

They were fun until they started raising the price on them to 25 and up. I wanted the Ewoks and others, but wasnt paying that much for them.

Kb.com has a few for 6 bucks plus shipping.

The Rancor was sitting out, so I stuck him there because I didnt feel like going back in the closet and putting him away.

Believe it or not, the Han Stormtrooper helmet doesnt fit on Han, but fits perfectly on Dooku

Cool stuff! The vintage 12" figures are very nice...

...but I'd never mix them. No mix! No mix!

I have a bunch of 12" star wars figures, most of them still boxed up. At least they stack nicely.

Keep in mind, there is a whole other set of figures behind the ones you see.

Let's go to Frett's house and buy his figures! :D

Question: what's the deal with the helmetless Stormtrooper behind Leiabike? Should it have facial hair? :beard:

That was a dragon nude figure that I bought on eBay, and stripped a Hasbro Stormtrooper down, and dressed up the articulated figure up in armor. Yes, it is supposed to be me, before the dark times, before the facial hair. You might notice he's got his imperial issued E-11 blaster pointed at the princess, while Luke stand idly by.

Please don't come and buy my small TRU toy stock. I :love: my toys!

How is it that I picked up on it being a you-fig but I missed the awesome pose that the Hasbro figure isn't capable of? :p Dragon's a good choice, but you gotta beard your custom up now! :D

Of course Luke isn't helping, Leia's so happy that he couldn't imagine anything being wrong, and he's busy thinking about even more crazy colors to dye his hair. ;)

I was thinking of using a Dragon body for my 12" Scout...
