I sold my loose childhood collection on ebay in about 2003. did each figure sepratly so cant quite remember how much I made but I think it was near £500
between then and 2008 I managed to put a loose run of all the figures together apart from vinyl jawa but also loose ships and playsets, even had a minty hoth ice planet and I sold all that to people on here when I joined this forum.
the only thing I still own and was by accident was my childhood mk2 boba fett, I out played my original and my mum bought me another at the time which went missing but since my dad sold the house I now have it from it being found clearing up.
all my he-man, thundercats, transformers got given away to cousins because i grew out of those toys and at the time I wasn't bothered and didn't know they'd be worth money in years to come, but because I spent a lot of time going with my dad to boot fairs and antique and collectors fairs buying more and more figures that I didn't have on the back of that weequay 77 back card I knew all of that meant a lot to me.
I do wish I still had my loose collection but really i wish I still had that weequay backing card that I took to fairs with me that I would tick figures off on the back when I got them and then knew which ones I was after
