    Arrow What did you save?

    Some of us (we? as an English teacher, I still get that wrong sometimes) old geezer SW collectors were around when the toys were retail products, not really secondary market yet. When you decided to resume collecting (unless you had a DeLorean with a functioning flux capacitor ), what did you begin with? Were you a smart one who stored everything in a temperature-controlled room, sealed in the packages? Did your mom keep everything in an attic for you, or was it dripping with fungus and spiders? Was it one Rancor Keeper, sans headress and left arm?

    List away, if you can remember back that far! :wavy lines:

    I'm not sure I understand the question exactly, but I arrived into adulthood with everything that I had collected during childhood. That was most of the action figures minus most of the ROTJ coin figures. I also still have my Falcon, Landspeeder, and Slave I all in their original boxes. I think that everything else I have (vintage) are things I picked up b/n 1985-ish and now.

    I have very little from my childhood. Most of my stuff was either lost in various moves, or thrown out by my dad. The main problem I had was lack of income, and no one in my family to support my now iout of control habit. I have a few figures from Empire, most of my vintage was from ROTJ. I also have a 12" Darth Vader loose from Venture. My brother was nice enough to donate it to me.

    The last figures I bought as a kid were Klaatu and Admiral Ackbar at a KB Toys in '88 (a two for $1 deal). I pasted on the B-Wing Pilot (again). I starting collecting in August of '95 when I bought a Dagobah playset. But it was only after I found eBay in November of '97 did I really start getting stuff. I didn't win my first SW item, Jedi Luke, until October of '98 though.
