Nice modern collection! I like the Micro Machines very much
I still own a lot of Ep I figures and vehicles. Maybe not a good investment after all, but like you I bought most of them cheap.
I am not a big fan of the prequels, but as soon as Ep I came out I got tempted by the good looking action figures. I bought some beated carded action figures for a small price and I was very happy at that time, because figures were not yet for sale in any regular toy shop
Oh yeah, just like a little kid looking at a future with some more Star Wars movies.... Those were the days
