Thought it's about time I introduced myself, I've been a member for a month or so and have made a few purchases from some of you guys. However so far I haven't taken the plunge and said hello, so here goes
I'm not really used to social media, or using technology, writing posts takes me forever and tbh I have social anxiety issues which are generally compounded on social platforms so I tend to shy away from them, however I don't want to appear to be rude to everyone here by lurking in the shadows.
My name is Jon, I'm 40 and live in Suffolk. I've got one kid (12 yr old girl), no partner, one dog, three cats and lots of Star Wars figures for company.
I was totally obsessed with Star Wars as a kid, every time my parents asked me what I wanted for birthdays and Christmas my response would be 'Star Wars stuff'
As a result I had pretty much every figure, vehicle and a play set- notice I said had!
Yup, I sold the lot in 1996 to help with moving out of family home. Sold the lot to one of my dad's colleagues for £200
The worst thing is I never really played with them as such, I would just spend hours setting them up on display and then carefully put them away again, so they would have been in perfect condition- at least I didn't keep the boxes so it could've been worse I guess.
As sad as it sounds that is one of the biggest regrets of my life, so now I can afford to I'm trying to get at least the figures back, although somehow along the way I seem to have developed a desire for moc's, baggies and card backs, my wallet doesn't share this enthusiasm
Only started my mission at the start of the year, so far I have 62 loose figures (complete and in excellent condition) a few bargain tri logo moc's (thanks Mike and Rob
), one card back and a handful of baggies- think I need to concentrate on completing the loose figures for now
Anyway I've waffled too long already, so that's me saying hello.
May the force be with you
