Thread: Roll Call

  1. #1

    Roll Call

    The movies are history. CIV is coming soon. It's getting difficult to find toys in the store.

    So...

    Who's left here?

    Where do you live?

    How old are you now?

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet?

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect?

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby?

    Do you have a hot wife/husband/significant other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff?

    Books mostly. but i wouldn't say I collect them.

    The entire Star Wars thing? Not sure - but my interest is fading fast.

    I live in L.A.

    I'm 34.

    I kind of have run out of room for toys, but I'm an opener so that helps. Still, my LOTR Toybiz figures, my Armies of Middle Earth miniture figures are packed up. So yeah, not a lot of room.

    I only collect the 3 3/4 Hasbro action figures, and probably only about 60% of the figures. Especially clones. I don't collect any of the other Star Wars lines, though I will get the rare Ultra Titanium ship or Sideshow figure.

    I actually kind of hope the line ends gracefully within the next couple of years. I'm not a big fan of the collecting process. It's a pain in the arse.

    My wife tolerates my collecting. She's not into Star Wars. So far I've avoided a knee to the groin over my collecting habits, so she's tolerant... so far.

    Who's left here?
    After more than 2 years, I never left.

    Where do you live?
    Tarrytown, NY

    How old are you now?
    18

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet?
    Not yet, and I don't think I will anytime soon.

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect?
    Not much anymore besides the figures. Maybe just Star Wars Insider.

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby?
    Until I feel my collection is complete (in other words, when they only start cranking out EU figures)

    Do you have a hot wife/husband/significant other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff?
    My ex-girlfriend was a Harry Potter nut, she loved that series as much as I love Star Wars (When we saw "Prisoner of Azkaban", she even wore a big wizard hat and Hogwarts scarf, even though it was June). She understood my hobby. It's a shame things didn't work out between us.

    Who's left here?
    Ummm, here is subjective and relative. My here is your there and vice versa. Plus, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that we can never definitively know where something will be, just probable location for a best guess.

    Where do you live?
    Coralville, IA. If I cross the street I'm in Iowa City, IA.

    How old are you now?
    30, but I've been known to act like I'm 4 from time to time

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet?
    Yes, but that's just because the budget hasn't allowed for construction of another display case yet.

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect?
    I used to do GI Joe until it became too much of a chore and basically got armies finally that I could start to plan all the dios in my head out. I do some WotC minis, but I'm interested more in the army building "common" type to use integrative the RPG, but will go online and buy singles from various people if I like something.

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby?
    Never was a completest, so as long as they keep making the things I'm interested in I'll grab some here and there. People bash them, but if you wait, the battle packs eventually take care of you in a cost effective manner.

    Do you have a hot wife/husband/significant other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff?
    Until she gets her green card, she lets me do whatever I want. I'm sure after the hearing on May 1 that will all change. Course, my advisor maybe just as significant as the wife, but he hasn't seen the collection yet.

    Who's left here?
    Bobafrett's my name, Star Wars is my game

    Where do you live?
    Elmhurst, Illinois, computer porn capital

    How old are you now?
    41, but will be 42 next month, feel like I'm 60 sometimes

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet?
    Yes, started putting them in totes in my basement, well mostly because my girlfriend moved in, but even before so, I was running out of space.

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect?
    Gentle Giants busts, Pez dispensers, Star Wars lego's, Hallmark Ornaments, Galactic Heroes.

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby?
    Been collecting for a long time, hopefully when it really dies down, I will be able to either sell some of it, or spend the money getting more vintage collectibles.

    Do you have a hot wife/husband/significant other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff?
    My significant other and I went out for a walk this evening, I got onto the topic of my tax return, and said I would like to spend under $100 of it on Star Wars and she looked at me like I was crazy to spend even that much. I really want to add the GG Chewbacca bust to my collection. I do buy stuff on the side and sneak it in with the rest of my collection, but I think she suspects that I do.

    Who's left here? Me too.

    Where do you live? Las Vegas

    How old are you now? 34

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet? Nope. Being a non-completist OT only collector that opens figures saves me a lot of space (and money).

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect? Galactic Heros for my kids. I used to collect the SW WOTC minis, but found it expensive and frustrating. Gave up collecting SW Legos a few years ago also.

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby? Undecided. Depends on what Hasbro puts out.

    Do you have a hot wife other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff? Yep. She even looks for stuff for me when I'm not with her.

    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    I never really left.

    Where do you live?
    Montana

    How old are you now?
    12 years older than I was in '95.

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet?
    Yes, but that hasn't really stopped me.

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect?
    I stopped collecting Hasbro figures about 5 years ago. Currently I still collect Vintage Kenner and Lego.

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby?
    I'm totally burned out on the Hasbro stuff. I'm not really happy with Lego, but will keep buying. The Vintage stuff I don't buy as I use to because I have most of what I want.

    Do you have a hot wife/husband/significant other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff?
    I'm single, so this question is an irrelevant.

    Who's left here? I'm right here

    Where do you live? Albany, NY

    How old are you now? 26

    Have you run out of room for more toys yet? I never had all the room I'd like yet.

    Beyond 3 3/4" Hasbro action figures, what other Star Wars items do you try to collect? Just the novels for the most part.

    How much longer do you plan on keeping with this hobby? Depends on how long they supply us with things to collect.

    Do you have a hot wife/husband/significant other who understands and/or tolerates your spending on this stuff? Haven't jumped off that bridge yet.
