Hey GREEDO:Originally posted by greedo
I find that I have to keep up with the collection for some reason. I enjoy trying to get everything made for the SW action figure stuff. I have evey action figure made since 95 until now. I only need the Imperial officer and Rebel Tantiv? soldier.
It looks like there are only 3 or 4 Canadians on here, that is too bad, maybe Canada doesn't collect like the US does after all.
Where are you from?
I'm from Hartland, NB (As my AVITAR states). Where's GREEDO from?
I'm a hard core collector...but not as hard core as most. I open all of my stuff and collect only the CLASSIC TRILOGY Stuff. I only collect the 3.75 scale and vehicles. There are specific figures and vehicles that I'm collecting...I'm nowhere near a completist collector. Maybe if I had about $200 - $300 a month to spend on SW stuff...then maybe I would buy all of the POTF2 and POTJ figs from the Classic Trilogy. However...I've got about $40 - 50 a month to spend...so you can see that I'm having a hard time catching up from not collecting since 1995. I have only been a hard core collector for about 2 years now. I started back in 1996, but took a break from it since I couldn't afford to buy all of the ones I was looking for and I saw alot of the same figures. There were some I didn't want at the time, but now I want them. I have since made a complete list of all of the figures that want and the quantities that I want so that I won't make the same mistake twice.
I purchase my stuff both in Canada and the US. It seems that the US is getting the majority of my business lately due to Hasbro Canada not releasing the FX-7 wave in Canada. ARGH! I hope that the R4M9 wave comes out though. I plan on getting two of him. What I want most...the Tie Bombers and Snowspeeders to be on sale here in New Brunswick and for me to find 2 and 3 of them respectively for less than $40.00 CAN each. Here's hoping!
