What have you never owned?

Postby indianawars » Fri May 26, 2017 4:25 am

So in my case I have never owned a Han Solo (Hoth) figure, which is pretty stupid considering I've owed almost every figure in one way or another. But every time I think to myself, 'oh yeah, I need a Han Hoth,' I then can never find one in the condition I would like and forget all about it.

So keeping it real, what have you never owned, but probably should have by now?

That's an interesting question. It's once that's caused me to have a good hard think and I'm struggling to ID anything as common as Han Hoth. There's two pieces I've never owned that I would like to but they're not exactly low key. In actual fact in terms of weight and size they're at the opposite end of the figure and vehicle spectrum: a VCJ and the Shuttle Tyderium. Would love a shuttle but they're bloody massive and I don't have the space yet.

I'd love to own the Shuttle too. I've never owned one either, But like you, it's the size issue that's a problem...

I've never owned a Ewok village play-set before. Although it's a very much achievable item, It has never been top of my want list.

Apart from when I was a kid, I've never had a Millennium Falcon. It's just too big.

I've always wanted a Blue Snag.
Never had one, been close a few times, but something else always comes up at the same time.
Maybe one day.

Another one who's never had a shuttle, or any of the other POTF era ships. I would like them but they've never been a priority

The sand crawler is another one I've not owned, and I would love one of those

I've never owned a prototype, but funnily enough it was a paint stripped C3PO that I naively thought might be a prototype that led me to first sign up for rebelscum forum to ask what it was.

If I hadn't done that, then I'd likely never have joined this forum either and probably would have just carried on collecting low end loose figures in my own little bubble.

I've never had a shuttle, skiff or any of the remote controlled toys. I have also never owned an x-wing that I can recall.

I've had an example of most other things at some point, I think! Oh to have kept them all.

Had most of the main production stuff through my hands over the years but the one thing I have never had is the Tatooine Skiff (POTF).

Which is weird because I always thought it was by far the best vehicle in the whole kenner line with regards to on screen accuracy.

I've never owned a Snowspeeder. I always wanted one as a kid but never got one. I bought a modern one some years ago, but it's not the same.
