    What did you buy at MM in 1999?

    I didn't go to MM in May 1999, I went to buy my figures on the day of May 3 with my mom and dad. But I found everything there that I wanted. I got:

    Basic Figures
    Darth Maul (I was lucky to score this baby)
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Qui-Gon Jinn
    Jar Jar Binks
    Anakin Skywalker
    Battle Droid
    Padme Naberrie
    Queen Amidala
    Mace Windu
    Watto
    C-3PO
    Darth Sidious
    Boss Nass
    Senator Palpatine
    Ki-Adi Mundi
    Ric Olie
    Gasgano w/ Pit Droid
    Chancellor Valorum

    That did it for May 3. But about a few weeks later, I also accumulated:

    The Naboo Fighter
    Anakin's Podracer
    Sebulba's Podracer
    Droid Starfighter 3-pack


    What did you guys buy?

    I bought a ton of figures that night:

    Qui-Gon
    Anakin
    Obi-Wan
    Darth Maul
    Mace Windu
    Padme
    Queen Amadala
    Ric Olie
    3PO
    Valloirum
    Palpantine
    JJB.
    Battle Droids

    The onlyone I remember passing on was Ki-Adi. I ended up getting him at a scalper shop(collectable place) for 20 bucks. And wouldnt you know, two weeks later he was everywhere.

    I really don't remember what I got that night because I unfortunately wasn't able to go. But my brother went for me and I gave him $200 and told him to get as much as possible. I remember him waking me at about 1 in the morning to show me "my" finds. The only one that I remember not getting was Darth Maul and that's because my brother had him but let someone else buy him instead.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    Didn't go to Episode I MM but that afternoon I hit Wal-Mart and TRU and bought all figures but Darth Maul. But I stopped at K-Mart afterward and found him so it wasn't a big deal. I also bought a CommTech Reader.

    I did buy the deluxe accessory sets but wasn't too impressed with those after opening them. Also bought those "battle bags" but later returned them. I passed on the vehicles and beasts, but eventually bought some of them on clearance several months later.

    Since I wasn't too enthused about the movie I was mostly apathetic about collecting the toys. I have a lot of holes in my prequel collection but I'm not really interested in filling them even today.

    I also forgot to mention that I picked up the Opee and the Kaadu on May 3 as well.

    I bought Darth Maul and an armload of Battle Droids. Those are the only carded Ep1 figures I own to this day.

    I bought nothing.

    But eventually I found every basic carded figure from the line. My EP1 carded collection is now complete, minus a few "variations" but I could care less about those.

    I kinda wish I had the money to complete my bonus figure EP1 collection. I currently have several of the "Bonus Battle Droid" and a few of the "Bonus Pit Droid" figures carded. I would still have to drop a bundle to complete that collection. It's just not worth it to me, given my level of income.
    May the force be with you.

    I bought everything that came out at the first Midnight Madness for the 3 and 3/4 line.

    In 2002, the day after Midnight Madness, I bought: Peasant Disguise Anakin, Arena Padme, Coruscant Chase Obi-wan, Jango Fett, Boba Fett, C-3P0, R2-D2, and female Tusken Raider. A couple days after that I bought Hangar Duel Anakin, Count Dooku, and Yoda. There are still some Episode II figures I don't have and I never bought any of the vehicles. In other words, I scaled WAY back.

    Even though I was collecting SW toys at the time I didn't go to MM back in 1999. Eventually I did pick up all of the figures I wanted for my loose collection and a complete carded set to cover my walls though. Looking back I'm glad I didn't go because I probably would've bought into the hype and spent way to much money on what I feel was one of the weaker SW toy runs.
