So, a few weeks ago I got this urge to open a few of my Lord of the Rings figures. After opening a few of them, it made me want to open some of my Star Wars figures. I've been mostly a carded collector opening mostly duplicates, and most of those are army building types.
So, I decided to start with some Episode I carded figures. I figured that would be a good place to start. With the Commtech chips and different sizes in the bubbles, those figures don't stack nicely in the boxes I stored them in. Plus, most of them aren't worth anything anyway. Thus I opened about half of them one weekend.
So, over the next couple weeks I opened a few more, mostly some duplicate Saga and OTC figures. I really like the OTC line and the figures look nice in that packaging, so I decided I would even get all of the reissued figures so that I would have the entire line carded. This also led me to get duplicates of the new figures (except for the Scanning Trooper which I have yet to find).
So that brings me to this weekend. I spent most of Saturday opening more figures. I have now opened a fair number of POTF2 and POTJ figures, and a few Saga figures as well. I'd probably open more but I'm running out of places to display them.
So that raises the following questions. Have I taken my first step into a larger world, or have I started down a dark path that will forever dominate my destiny. And why does every paragraph in this post begin with "So"?
