I have only recently got into collecting vintage figures, what with the yawning abyss that is in place of new figures at retail these days. I'm glad I did! Vintage figures are great fun, and I seem to get more enjoyment from adding them to my collection than I do buying some of the newly recycled stuff Hasbro tends to churn out, when they churn out anything at all.
Anyhoo, I was wondering what your favorite item is among your vintage collection? My collection is very, very small at present -- 2 carded figures, 2 loose -- so I have to go with my carded ROTJ Vader. Haven't had the thing graded, but I'd guess a 7, due to some light creasing on the card; but the bubble is crystal-clear. It occupies a place of honour among my displayed carded collection.
