I have recently decided to focus more on collecting vintage figures. Collecting the current figures has gotten kind of boring for me, I only get OT figures anymore and with prices going up, . Not to mention there won't be much OT in 05.
And I think collecting vintage will be a lot of fun! I have about 30 odd figures from my childhood, but only nine of them have weapons. The complete nine so far:
Endor Rebel Commando
Sensor Scope R2
1. the first thing I want to do is purchase caches of vintage weapons I come across on ebay and complete the figures I already have. That seems cooler than just buying big lots of complete figures! Even though Bespin Han is looking pretty rough, I'll give him a new gun and take him any day over a C-10 one (whatever that means)! The other good part about getting weapons is that I can hopefully come here to SSG and sell any extras for a buck or two, or trade with people.
2. then I want to get the figures I had when I was a kid, but managed to misplace or destroy.
3. After that, I think I'll just start at the beginning and work from there!
Anyhoo, not that it makes for really interesting reading, but I will make this thread sort of a journal about my immortal quest for all the old figures!
