Hi everyone,

I've been following this forum for about a year now and I've finally got around to posting. I think you guys are doing a fantastic job, this place is addictive.

My name is Paul, I'm 39, and live with my wife and children in Milton Keynes.

I loved Star Wars as a kid and collected Rotj figures and ships. Those Christmases opening the Millennium Falcon, scout walker etc live long in the memory, though I made the grave mistake of giving away all my star wars toys to a family friend when I was about 12. I deeply regret it.

I've only started collecting again over the past 14 months with my focus on rotj moc. I have 7 mocs now and I'm hooked. Weirdly I have my mother to blame as out of nostalgia she bought me a Finn Force Awakens figure a couple of Christmases ago as a light hearted throw bbc back to childhood, but it ignited some nostalgic awakening of those childhood Saturday mornings perusing Woolworths for figures and I started seeking out more. Hence how I found this forum.

Great to finally introduce myself.

Welcome to the forum you'll enjoy it here, i'm mainly a ROTJ collector myself as I was born in the 80's and ROTJ toys seemed to be around a lot more than anything else, so that's what's more nostalgic to me.

But yes once you pop you can't stop! :lol:
You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!

Long time lurker, now joined! To be honest, I finally registered in the hopes of completing my loose Kenner Vintage collection and post some threads in the Most Wanted forum.

That said, as a SW fanatic since 1977, once that's done, I'll enjoy posting more generally on all topics.

Hi My name is Russ, I am 45, married with 3 children, I live in Nottinghamshire.

I am a massive Star Wars fan since 10 years old.

I had a huge collection back when I was a kid but like a lot of kids, I outgrew them.....the shame :shock:

My mum gave the collection to my cousin.....again the shame :shock:

I have recently started to collect vintage ROTJ figures and vehicles and in time I hope to re-create my childhood.

I look forward to speaking to like minded collectors and fans like myself.

Thanks

Russ
Russ :D

Hello from Jedijut,

My name is Justin Lea from Australia. To be completely honest, I’ve never really got into the forums mainly due to time but still used them as a visitor for information. Yes I’m a lurker lol but now it’s time to get involved!!

I started collecting as an adult back in 2000ish and progressed from loose figures and ships to Mint on card and boxed items. Collecting a bit of everything along the way from fast food cups and glasses, toy catalogs, posters, loose variants (main variants) and a mint on card/box run of Die Cast ships.

So a few years ago I came to the realization that I couldn’t display everything and made the decision to sell off my boxed and carded items. 90 mint on cards sold to one buyer and boxed ships/play sets sold individually. Not only did this give me the room back it gave me the funds to concentrate on my loved focus, the vintage Die Cast line.

I’ve always enjoyed listening to the vintage Star Wars pod casts and reading all the latest collecting books. I find focusing on the Die Cast can be a lonely endeavor but have made some great collecting friends.

Thanks for the great work everyone does and chat soon.

Hi Taff

Thanks for the welcome, I am concentrating on the vintage ROTJ line, I have other collectables like glasses, lego figures, prints and my prized Harrison Ford autograph that sits nicely in my office.

Take care

Russ
