I've got too many toys, mostly Star Wars stuff. I want to trim down my collection; I don't need two Malakilis, I simply don't have room for 75%+ of my vehicles and probably never will, and I have no desire to display much of anything from AOTC or ROTS. I've made a couple of false starts in clearing out this mass over the past two or three years, and had finally gotten myself ready to get rid of this stuff.
For a few years after we met, my wife aided and abetted me in gathering crap. "Don't pass on that R2-D2 with the string feature. You'll regret it later." Then, she started complaining about the amount of crap. I honestly can't say I blame her.
So, now that I'm finally psyched to clear out some junk and properly display whatever I keep (which is still likely to be a lot, but a manageable lot), I've been pretty much forbidden to sell, trade, or donate it. "You bought that, so you shouldn't get rid of it. I'd rather you not buy anything now than get rid of stuff you have." I've so far been unable to convince her that, given my likes and interests, a new Dewback means far, far more to me than four extra General Grievouses.
I can't even get rid of the Imperial Shuttle that's been gathering dust on an entire shelf in the garage for years, and which at least one person here asked me about.
Any advice? Honestly, I want to clear out this stuff. Someone here or a kid could appreciate it more than I can. I could get rid of a few small things without her knowing, but stuff like the aforementioned Shuttle would be bloody obvious when they're suddenly missing.
