I've actually had a good long think about this and actually still want one thing from my complete disaster of a 2016 list.
This coming year I want to get a 12 back, any 12 back. This will be a budget purchase but you can get them for around (and under) £200 so that's goal number one.
Number two should be achievable as well - I intend to complete the first 12 loose figures, of which I need 10
Number three on my list is to add more KayBee stickered items to my collection
Number four would be to have fun, go to more shows, fairs, shops, meet ups, to stay focussed and complete the first 3.

Love to see everyone else's and whilst I don't want to wish the time away I can't wait to see how we have all done in 12 months time

I did OK last year as my main goal was to construct a new collecting room which I am now in and its starting to feel a very comfortable place to be :D
This coming year:

- Hero three pack; any condition or even a part complete example. Well it has Han in so I may as well dream...
- Yan Solo, meccano ROTJ MOC
- Clear down a the last few items that are duplicates to free up space and cash
- Boxed IG88 and Fett to complete the boxed 12" run
- To finish a couple of unfinished projects; Stormtrooper armour needs constructing and the Tie Pilot helmet needs painting. I have a commission paint job to do first though...
On the hunt for items for my Han Original big head / pinhead focus

Not a huge target for me in 2017... just the following ;

A full run of cardbacks.. one of each character. This will complete my triple run.. loose, moc and cardback.

Any Stormtrooper cardback I don't yet own.. POTF, Top Toys for starters.

4LOM mailer - as this one is the most achievable of the ones I require.. Dengar would be good but costly.

Wanted - Instruction sheets and Stormtrooper cardbacks preferably....

Vinyl Caped Jawa
Blue Snaggletooth
Blue saber Luke Jedi MOC
Complete my set of Tri logo Fetts
Bootleg Luke Jedi figure
Further items for my Luke Jedi picture collection

To complete anyone of these would be truly amazing 8)
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

Mine are almost unchanged from last year, as I achieved only one out of three!

1) Expand my COO variant thread with new figures and update old ones! I managed to achieve some solid updates 2016, and if I can achieve the same level of activity on it in 2017 I'll be very satisfied.

2) Try harder to complete a couple of 'work in progress' collection issues (figures I need that I haven't achieved for far too long), Namely PBP Dengar (Pink face); PBP Luke X-Wing (Pale face), PBP IG88 (scarred No CoO), and a couple of figure upgrades in PBP 4LOM & Rebel Soldier (Meccano/Trilogo)

3) Possibly meet up with some loose collectors at some point (in Newcastle?) and trade some things from the "treasure trove in the drawer" over a pint of Guiness or two

4) Shit, Help lars find his bloody Barada :lol:

No stress.

Neil

I currently have 10 items in the mail so for me 2016 will finish with a bang but for 2017 I would say these 3

Goal: Pick up at least 2 big bangers (foreign moc's) for my Teebo focus and finally finish the displays in my back room
Hopes: Get the last 2 complete Ewoks play sets I need, hopefully in Oz because of size ( Family Hut & Sit-N-Spin )
Dreams: That Iain will sell me that Trilogo Teebo miscard :lol:
Hooch, somehow you always make ewoks look cool 8)

I'd like to add another Meccano 20bk to my collection, complete my loose run (paploo, romba, blue snaggletooth and vinyl Jawa to go), and add to my Palitoy run - I've a few tough ones to go, so adding one or two of these would be great.

Keep going to shows, keep meeting up with friends and maybe make some new ones too.
Detailed WTB list here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32243

Includes: Loose figures, Palitoy MOCs, Meccano 20bks, Vehicles, Mailers, Paperwork and more.
