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.
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
I prefer trading items to buying them, have a loose run, about half the ships/vehicles and all the mini-rigs, spent under £200 and have had a blast doing so. This hobby doesn't have to be about spending a mortgage deposit every month on one item
