Yeah, I hope so too. Luckily my job is about as recession-proof as possible.
2 scores on ebay tonight, but i won't count them until they're in hand: Paploo and Warok (and i had a near-miss on Lumat which would have rounded out my vintage Ewoks). All in good time.
you are on the home stretch now. I hope to finish mine next year!
Yeah, I think I'm up to 88....... but I've still got a few weapons to find for a couple of figures (it works out that the guy MIGHT still have the black Endor blaster for my Imp Gunner - he's sure he sent the black Jabba's Palace blaster to the US with a Jedi Luke figure many moons ago. :( ).
R2 Pop UP
Blue Snags (which I'm still on the fence about but leaning towards trying to get)
I might also try to track down some common variants: toothy Lando, brown haired Bespin Luke and Bespin Leia with a turtleneck... but as I type, I'm starting to sound a little obsessive to myself which is never good. lol
The end is in sight for my vintage micro collection. Received my Hoth Ion Cannon and Wampa Cave playsets today, all figures included. Just the Generator Attack and Turret Defense sets to go, then on to the micro vehicles. :pleased:
Well my latest find is Darth Vaders Star Destroyer playset and Star wars laser Game, both in closed boxes ,never opened or played with. a great find at a garage sale!
Went to the SoCal collectibles show Frank & Son, and found a vendor with quite a few accessories, vehicles, and playset parts. I saw some TIE Interceptor wings (no cockpit) and some TIE Fighter cockpits. For $7, a got a canopy-less and battery flap-less blue TIE cockpit and 2 TIE Int wings (one with a broken laser tip). Thought I could create what EU calls a "TIE Ugly" pieced together. Took it home, tried to attach the second wing... wait for it... wait... I'd bought 2 "right" wings and didn't even check there. :upset: I suck! :upset: :mad: :upset: :mad:
But I also got some "cheap" other figures (from non-vintage lines), and spending a total of $22 for everything, it's not so bad. But darn it! :upset: :mad:
