Not ten individual items but my main focus areas for next year:

1) Pick up a Yak (probably) and Madine (unlikely) to finish my trilogo run
2) Finish my run of basic baggies, need about 30 more
3) Pick up a couple more nice MISB vehicles, especially keen on a Snowspeeder and B-Wing
4) Find some more obscure Star Wars/LucarArts games I don't already have
5) Continue to pick up 70b/70c trilogo MOCs when funds allow

This year , I have decided to down size some of my collection , so targets for 2017 ,

1. Going to Celebration in April
2. Would like to dig up my parents garden to find my Lando figure from 1981 !!!
3. Full run of beater loose figures
4. Maybe another 3 pack action set
5. More Palitoy 12 backs


That's about it .

Would like to complete my run of First 12 on SW cards - got 5 to go, so might take a little longer than one year...

1. I'm happy with my loose collection but would like to get a burgundy cape LL Bib Fortuna and dark brown Rebel Soldier if I can.
2. Add some more ships to the collection, maybe a few playsets as well.
3. I bought a large collection of carded POTF2 and Episode 1 figures recently so may start finishing off the run of those.
4. More Zuckuss.
5. Create some space to put all this!

It does not need to be mint, but also not a beater. It does also not need to have a weapon. Price I was thinking about normal price + a little extra.

Haven't collected much this year due to ridiculous prices and being busy with other things. Have lost the mojo a bit. Would like to try and pick up a few things this year:

Loose last 17 figures (not likely due to prices), trilogo Boba Fett and a metallic 2-1B for my loose set.
Max Rebo band.
ROTJ Mocs.
MIB mini-rigs.
Paperwork,catalogues, oddball.
Cardbacks.

Would also like to diversify a bit and continue to pick up some other vintage toys and maybe some Star Wars lego. Also want to finish my Gaffi sticks and make some other prop replicas.

I need ERG, Paploo and Imperial Gunner for my Trilogo run (also need Boba and Madine but they might be a long way away)

For my Tsukuda run I need Luke Jedi, Darth, Biker Scout and Lando Skiff

For my Clipper run I still need plenty of them - love that little black sticker

Apart from that there is nothing I 'need' so just look to pick up a few bits an pieces when I can
