Every collector is unique and has his or her own reasons for collecting. Hasbro's current main line, The Vintage Collection, uses the hardcore collector-focused classic Kenner look for its design and packaging, but not every hardcore collector is interested in the carded experience; conversely, some collectors only care about that carded experience; and still other collectors are interested only in getting one of every NEW figure no matter its packaging.
Hasbro has put a lot of effort into focusing on that hardcore old-school collector experience for the main line, right down to reusing the coffin blister style of the original '70s Kenner figures rather than a newer, more dynamic blister packaging experience. The Vintage Collection has also raised its price a dollar over the other main figure lines from Hasbro Star Wars as a response to the lower number of casual consumer draw to the line - they have to charge more to make up for the lower sales potential of focusing TVC on hardcore collectors.
Obviously a lot of collectors are going to have more than 1 reason, so we're asking what your PRIMARY reason for collecting the line is, what drives you more than anything else about the line?
