If you're like me, it's been a while since you bought anything recently released by Hasbro. My reason is: I cannot find anything new. I have to say that I rarely visit toy stores like KB and TRU anymore; there's not much out there to justify me going out of my way from my usual Wal-Mart rounds.
I collect mainly Classic-themed stuff, as long as it's decent quality; I also collect some of the Prequel toys that catch my fancy, which are few. But the last "new" figure I bought was a Clone Pilot (the only one I ever saw at retail!), and that was back in January.
This collecting lull, along with the rather slim collecting year 2003 is looking to become, is testing my faith in the hobby a little. Lately I've been sniping decent deals here and there on Ebay; but that's mainly for older POTF2 and POTJ stuff, usually army builders. I've also been purchasing action figure stands, and have begun an attempt at cataloging my collection (bagging and labeling, mostly). All in an effort to keep myself interested in collecting Star Wars figures and vehicles. So far, it's working, but I find that part of the zeal I used to have is gone. I hope that it does not set in, and I lose all interest whatsoever, like I've read happened to so many former Forumites here at SSG.
Anybody else have similar thoughts? If so, how are you maintaining your interest in collecting? Or are you ready to throw in the towel?
