Yeah, I have that sickness that makes me want to get at least one of everything, no matter how crappy it is.
I've been trying to figure out why that might be and all I can come up with is this: I wasn't a "collector" back in the day. I was just a kid that liked the movies a whole lot and I ended up getting a bunch of figures for Christmas and birthdays. Well, 1983 happened to land at about the same time as my entry into high school and full fledged puberty. Alas, girls took priority over toys and the POTF coin line went unbought.
Fast-forward to the relatively recent future and the Special Editions. For some reason, those HeMan-type Star Wars action figures were good enough to ignite that still glowing ember that had lain mostly dormant for the better part of 20 years. No official proclamation came forth mind you, but it soon became clear that I would do whatever was necessary to secure one of every figure released. Perhaps it was because they all just caught my fancy, or maybe it was just because I didn't wish to repeat the past. But whatever the reason, it's been an enjoyable, albeit expensive, hobby and I hope to continue it as long as I can.
