With likely over 500 figures in our Star Wars collection now, the issue of what participating in this hobby means to a lot of people has had to have gone through some re-evaluation.
Please read the response choices closely, and then let's discuss what each of our own levels of participation stands at today.
some pointers on the responses:
1) Yes, I have to buy at least one of every figure Hasbro produces, even variations
This may or may not mean you also get Deluxe figures, pack-in figures, or special army builder packs, Screen Scenes, etc. YOU TELL US! It does mean that you buy every single-carded figure and any variations.
2) Yes, I want to get 1 version of any new figure, even resculpts, but not the variations.
This may or may not mean you also get Deluxe figures, pack-in figures, or special army builder packs, Screen Scenes, etc. YOU TELL US! It does mean that you don't care if you have all 12 variations on the 1996 Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight figure. That's not important to you.
3) Yes, but I complete a collection of only specific types, such as Classic Star Wars.
This means that you define some kind of category of figures, maybe just only figures from AOTC, or maybe just Jedi and Sith. YOU TELL US.
4) No, I now buy only what I really like but I'm mad, as I used to like being a completist.
How much of a completist were you? Variations? Just some sort of category that you fell back from? YOU TELL US.
5) No, I never had to have everything, I just get what I really like.
This means that you never worried about getting everything. Maybe you buy for dioramas or you "don't do resculpts." YOU TELL US.
With a Sketchtrooper on its way, a strong Prequel movie continuing to make it marketable to roll out a lot of AOTC figures, and army builder packs and Screen Scenes adding to the variations out there, let's see what everyone has to say.
