Hey everyone,

My name is Alistair. I am very new to figure collecting. My father had a full set of 12 backs which, after he died, got passed through family members for keepsakes. I am looking to start my own collection after being a lifelong Star Wars fan. I am currently building my first set of Stormtrooper armour and my second R-Unit Droid. I work in a comic shop and run a comic con, as well as being a tutor, web developer and I've just started my own online comic store to shift my collection.

I stumbled across the site when looking for information on collecting and hope to learn a lot from you all to build my collection. I know there are a lot of pitfalls but I'm hoping I can learn.

Thank you.

Hi im new, obviously, huge fan of the vintage line, and also have a large clone wars era collection, plus extensive star wars lego collection.
fairly new to collecting, i inherited a good joblot from my grandparents and held onto them until i could start enjoying them. very new to trying to find bargins, joined a few FB groups and was shocked what people are asking for loose crappy figures! thought it would be best to join a UK based group. lets see if you lot are any more normal!

Collecting Focus: just want one of everything, currently about 50% of the way, mostly need vehicles now, and more obscure charecters. at current state i have two Ikea Deltofts on display full of my kenner figures and playsets.

Character Focus: imperial, especially endor ie: speeder bikes, scout troopers, at-st.

Collecting interest: I enjoy loose played with toys that have been loved and enjoyed, not preserved MOC's i'd be afraid to handle
i especially enjoy trading vehicle parts and figures i have duplicates of for ones i dont, its way more fun than just shopping on eBay. however so far i have avoided any repro stuff in my collection and want to keep it that way! rather have empty hands than fake weapons.

Looking For
45 figures to complete my line
At-St loose, already have top cannon
AT-AT cranium, chin guns, bulb cover (yeah right)
Ewok village loose for awesome endor diorama.
reb. troop transport

Hello everybody!

Name: Ross
Age: 39
Single/Married: Married
Residence: Nottingham
Occupation: Musician
Kids: 2 but the ginger one isn't mine!
Pets: Dog

I've decided it's time to pull my old stuff out. Fairly extensive collection thats been sat doing nothing for too long so thought I'd at least start to catalogue it all and get some valuations etc. Having had a look around this site has already proved very useful so thought I'd say hi.

I just registered here. I'm mostly on the rebelscum boards. I was alerted to these boards because a collector buddy of mine alerted me to a couple items i'm currently seriously looking for.

I hope to find a bunch of new contacts and good discussions on here!
