I love the 1990s one, looks vintage but with a sound chip - fantastic!

POTF Skiff, Ewok Battle Wagon and Droids A-wing fighter for me. All later lines and despite liking all three, none of which I'm desperate to own either.

Too many to list but I have tried a bit of most production ranges but never anything from the animated Droids line

The main two for me would be the Sandcrawler and POTF Skiff. I can see these two are on a few peoples lists and I do have a modern Skiff that's taken from the same vintage molds so also scratch my head slightly to why I never bought one years ago, it really is an amazing vehicle!

I think both of these are out of my price range now a days and I have always struggled with displaying the bigger items due to space so it's probably best that I don't own them.

There are a great deal of items I have never owned, as you enter the world of vintage collecting you realise the enormity of the ranges that were produced. There are items I have not owned that one day I would like to, such as a 12 back, a Fett Moc, and definitely a Multipack and a lot of the baggies that I don't have.
To me I don't own them though, I'm just a custodian, and will pass on to my Son when I shuffle off ( thankfully he collects).
Never had aloose ugnaught though or a snow trooper.

There's lots of things in the line I've never owned but the only ones I really wanted was an Imp Shuttle and an AT-AT. I've got the Shuttle but I'd still love an AT-AT.

I'm going to pick the easier to find ones which I need to get of my arse and purchase, B-Wing and Y-Wing.

Dagobah playset - actually never had any of the playsets as a kid. When it came to birthdays or Christmas it would have meant missing out on a ship or a vehicle which I always thought would be the better option.
I really fancy Dagobah now though - its ESB and I love the original designer hide his daughters name on it and as my daughter is also called Emily it's clearly the will if the force for me to own one :D

VC Jawa for me still annoying as in the late 90's I thought I owned one only to discover it was fake in the early 00's. A beater MOC one would be nice, probably cheaper than a graded loose one. :roll:

Vlix...why.. One of the ugliest figures ever made at an extremely high price. He makes yak face look sexy.

I have most of the figures and several key vehicles.
My interest as a kid started to drop around the last 17 and I only have a few of them.
I had pondered getting the ones I never had as a kid to complete a loose run but I'm content with what I have.

However, there is one standout item I wanted as a kid, the AT-AT, but never did and have unsuccessfully bid on a few. It's still one I would like to own amd have on display.

I bow my head in shame, but put my hand up. It kills me to admit to this....

I never owned an Obi Wan Kenobi figure. Apart from that I had EVERY other figure.

Loose figure wise, I have never owned a VCJ. Had a blue snag in my loose run as a teenager but never had the impulse to buy a VCJ
Looking for:

Star Tours items
Yoda- Pre Production items - vintage, modern, anything from any range.
Star Wars Books!!

Never owned a B-Wing. I've always thought it was a cool ship and almost pulled the trigger on one several times over the years, but never have. One of these days I'll finally do it.
