Any of you collect teh SW figs? I used to, back when i was little. I was 14 when Power of the Force figures started coming back in 95. Anyways, I dug out a box of figures that I had collected around 07-08, and put them up on display. Also, ordered a few new figures, and here is what I have so far. Note, there are still a few on the way to me. Basically, they are on 2 shelves. Shelf 1 is Prequels, shelf 2 is Original Trilogy and after.



Got a better Maul on the way, along with some Ep1 figures.




Clone Wars. Movie Style Ahsoka is ordered and should be here soon.



Better versions of Obi and Anakin from Ep 3 are coming. These are all the way from 2005. Waited in line outside TRU for Midnight Madness.




Can you tell Empire is my favorite of the movies? Disco Lando and a better Bespin Luke are on the way.



If any of you collect, I would love to see some displays!!!

I collect the modern Vintage Collection and also the original vintage figures from the '70s/'80s but unfortunately don't have any displays up yet. Still trying to decide how to lay them out.

Looks like you've gota a nice collection and display going there, though! What line is that Count Dooku from? He looks much cooler than my ROTS one. bounce

Dooku is from the SITH EVOLUTIONS boxed set, with Darth Maul and Darth Sidious. Released in 2008, here is the info:

Much love for the beginning of your SW bookshelf. Looks just like the starting shelf for my SW Expanded books Very Happy

I wouldn't collect anything but the original line, too many good memories.

I do like the Lego mini-figures they are doing for Star Wars.

I was in a used book store the other day, and found what appears to be an original printing of Splinter of the Mind's Eye for 99 cents. Needless to say, I picked it up.

wow. I read that when it came out... but don't have a copy. Same with the Han Solo books. Ive been rereading the DW Target novels. Once I finish (not too much longer, I'm on Delta now) I want to make another run through the SW Expanded ones.

Dont have any SW figures anymore though. Sigh.

I wish there was a 6" Star Wars line. They only did 3 of them for Ep I (with action features to alienate folks that hate them). I was hoping they'd make some ML-style once Hasbro absorbed Toy Biz.

There have been rumblings of 6" scale SW figures coming soon to Disney theme parks as exclusives, kind of like their Indiana Jones and Pirates figures.

Perhaps they could do 6" Star Wars figure exclusive to Wal-Mart like they've done with the 6" Avengers figures. Of course, being in the UK I'd still have to pay an eye-watering amount of money for them on eBay but I know that they'd never do them over here in the UK. We seem to be rather neglected of a lot of Star Wars exclusives. No

Target has some exclusives too. I live in an area with GOBS of big box retailers and so it is easy to go searching for these kinds of things.

I really like the star wars range. So many characters you didnt know existed Razz

Just started collecting them again. I used to love the clone wars clones, but now the Vintage Collection ones look really good!
