    There used to be a store at a Mall not to far from me called "Starlog" They mostly sold Star Wars and Star Trek collectibles plus other Sci Fi stuff. I liked the store, but they had a case where they had vintage figures and collectibles, mostly Star Wars. They kept the stuff in the case because they wanted some rediculous prices IMO. I would just go there to drool down the front of the case, because as a collector I wanted to have the items, but my cash flow said "no". We just had a toy collectors show a month or so ago, and they had some vintage items there as well as toys you could have purchased up until recently. I liked going, but I kept my money in check, and just went to look, unless I came across a good deal.

    I collect vintage. I have alot of it. I have about 80 loose figures and some playsets, and beasts. I love the hunt. If they had shows like that near me I would definitly go to them, but I live in a small town with two colleges so there isn't much need for them here. I would travel to some if they were near by. I told my wife if Celebration 3 is close we are going.

    Ebay is a gamble. I will read feedback on people. I read 3500+ on one guy before I bid, and the only negatiove he had was shipping charges. Can't complain much on that since his website said 8 dollars flat shipping. If you wanted one item or 100 items it was 8 dollars. I won't bid on an item unless it is near end because of bidding wars and such. Try to keep the price down on it. I want to try and complete my vintage collection but the figures I am missing are the POTF1 and they are expensive loose, let alone carded. I am gonna get some carded figures from the vintage era when my money permits.

    There is a place about an hour from me that has a toy museum. I am going there next month. I can not wait to get there.

    I have all the vintage figures loose but I was lucky on some of the key figures. I got them before the market really got high. Around 95 I got the hard to find guys. However I still need to a helmet for my Luke Stromtrooper and a cape for my Lando Gen.
    I had a Blue Snaggle as a I kid but in 93 when I started to collect the old stuff I traded it for a loose Speeder and a Han hoth! I was dumb! But I later traded a Vader Carring Case for the other Snaggle. It all comes around.
    The most I paid is about $120 for Amanaman. I sold all my lose Batman:TAS figures and used that $100 to get a Double Tip Luke Skywalker. I have all the figures but do not have a Plastic Cap jawa. I don't get in all that yet, I just want the figures, dont care about the different ones. Like Lando with or without teeth.

    They used to a Starlog store at in mall in Minneapolis. My sister and cousins want to go shopping and I got drug a long. I bought a Dagobah playset at a highly inflated price. Don't know what happened to that store, it moved or went out of business.

    But I tell the once place the price is not dropping or showing any signs of slowing is in the accessories. A couple years ago I was at a convention and was negotiating with a dealer who wanted 20 bucks for 7 accessories. On e-bay I wachted a similar lot go for over $50 just recently.

    Unfortunately, vintage accessories like guns, staffs, capes, etc. are not cheap. Do the math; $20 by 7 = $2.86 each, which is actually a cheap price for guns, as far as I've seen.
    As to the question about the thread, SW will always hold out, because it has a nostalgic and monetary history to it. Will you be able to retire after selling your stuff? I don't think it truly ever was that way.

    I havent put my vintage collection with their weapons in 15 years probably. If I do and they are missing weapons I will leave em that way. I wont pay that much for em.

    Maybe not retire, but take a nice vacation, yes

    At the time it was a Jedi Luke cape, two Leia blasters, two Han blasters, a Stormtrooper gun and a Yoda snake. The guy wanted $6 for the cape and I said no. I don't remember why I didn't buy the other stuff from him. Although $6 is better then the $15 con some other guy tried pulling on me later that day for the same cape.

    I wouldn't pay 6 dollars for a cape either. My mother in law can sew. Cost about 50 cents for the fabric. I wouldn't pay no more than 50 cents for each gun either.
