I haven't been on for ages as i haven't been adding to my collection.
This thread caught my attention
For me my collection is all about my childhood and nostalgia.
Michael Sith I absolutely love your chewy bubble and card, what a bargain for £30 - Chewy was my first ever figure, so he has a very special place in my heart. I've still got my chewy and bought a cardback to display with him.
I couldn't justify/afford a MOC chewy, but i would love to buy a card with bubble attached if anyone hears of another!
I've just re located my childhood figure collection, they are now the first thing I see when I enter my house. Hopefully this will re enthuse me and get me back on SWFUK again.
Happy collecting everyone, except bell end collectors!

Human nature as always will dictate the actions of others, who may look down on those that collect on a budget and set elitist parameters for collecting, if they are comfortable with that then that's up to them, but it would not ever sway me in any way.
I collect what makes me happy and makes me smile, and that means putting together my collection on a budget and displaying for me.
Case in point..... bubble and card, bubble fully attached left hand side purchased on eBay £30 ish already had the figure, am I happy with it...hell yes, does it display well for me....yes
