As a vintage collector, do you ever feel like you are helping preserve a bit of our pop culture, kind of like a museum curator? Like, these loose and mint vintage figures are in your possession only temporarily, and you are simply a caretaker until they move on to another collection years from now?
Sometimes I feel that way, looking at the few vintage pieces I own. I hope one day to be able to show them to my grandkids, and say, "In MY day, THIS is what we had to play with! They'd have these things hanging on pegs in toy stores -- see the price sticker there? -- and I'd save my allowance just to buy ONE Star Wars figure like this one!" LOL
