I'm going to continue completing my boxed items as much as possible, instructions, inserts and correct posters or booklets where ever possible. Also get them in display cases and out on show. Not ruling out any MOC purchases depending on what pops up for the right price. Will be a year in March since I bought a MOC!

Well this has been quite the rubbish year on so many levels what with losing a friend in James Martin and the pandemic in general and all that has been associated with it. From a collection perspective though, 2020 has somehow managed to be the complete opposite...

I didn't have many specific items on my list when we started the year, but I did have a couple plus some wishy washy targets too and I've been very fortunate.

The specific items on my list were:

Palitoy die cast TIE Fighter MOC - Done
Palitoy 30B AT-AT Driver MOC - Done
Canadian O-Pee-Chee third series SW display box - Done
UK Topps second series SW display box - Still looking

The wishy washy targets were:

Morinaga sweet packets - Managed to pick up 2 different styles of boxes but still need the Smarties style 'tube' version
Die cast TIE Fighter MOCS to add to the focus - Managed to add the Palitoy as above but also added a 'Special Instruction' 12 back TIE MOC. Also upgraded my 12 back TIE MOC and my ESB TIE MOC
AT-AT Driver MOCS to add to the focus - Managed to add the 30B as above but also a nice Spanish PBP MOC which I wasn't expecting! Also upgraded a couple of others

Managed to pick up some more bits that I wasn't expecting but am delighted to have acquired:

Weequay on Barada trilogo miscard
Canadian O-Pee-Chee sealed first series wax pack
Canadian Special Offer AT-AT with Canadian AT-AT Driver MOC (needed a couple of things to make complete - I've added Canadian instructions and swapped in the correct brochure and survival kit, but still need new inserts)
Canadian Consumers Distributing Special Offer AT-AT with Canadian AT-AT Driver, AT-AT Commander and Stormtrooper MOCs - all complete and includes the CD catalogue


So for my 2021 wishlist...

Specific items

Vaccine for all so we can get out of this mess!
UK Topps second series SW display box
Morinaga sweet tube
Set of AT-AT inserts (Kenner version)
ESB-A Hoth Stormtrooper baggie to complete my 6 pack

Wishy washy targets

Die cast TIE Fighter MOCS to add to the focus - still need Meccano and Toltoys plus short wing DV TIE on TIE cardback (good luck with that then!)
AT-AT Driver MOCS to add to the focus - Palitoy and Kenner US done so looking for other markets (good luck with that too then!)
Topps related bits I don't have - Initial display box, UK candy heads display box etc.
Trebor bits I don't have (which is most of it! I've got about two thirds of a SW display box) - ESB Chewbar display box and wrappers, SW display boxes and wrappers

I didn't really have any goals for 2020.

However in 2021
I would hope to
Add to my 12 backs - I'm half way there.
Find a Power Droid to complete my 20 backs.
Add to my Tri Logo L17 run.
Finish some boxed vehicles with the inserts and leaflet/instructions.

In 2020 I’m hoping to add:
1. More 20/21 backs Nope
2. Molded Legs Han Hoth, Painted Torso Leia Boushh Yay to both
3. Zuckuss Made in China Baggie and Lili Ledy Zuckuss Nope
4. 4 line coo Dengar Yay
5. MIB Imperial Troop Transporter Nope
6. Dagobah Playset Nope
7. Early Bird Certificate Package Nope
Well lockdown happened. Prices shot up. And I was priced out of the MOC and MIB market. So not much happened there. So I hit variants big time.
In 2021 I’m hoping to add:
1. Poch chocolate legs Han Hoth
2. Poch black neck Lando
3. Mecanno Rebel Soldier
4. Zuckuss Made in China Baggie and Lili Ledy Zuckuss
5. Early Bird Certificate Package
6. MIB Imperial Troop Transporter
7. MIB Darth Vader Tie Fighter

More Anakin Offer MOCs! Especially Bib and Nikto
Complete Icarus placemat collection
Maybe a Pop up R2 upgrade
Get my SNES Super Return of the Jedi game back from @Christian, thanks @Clarkspie&chips :lol: :wink:
Super Empire Strikes Back complete boxed to complete that run!
And of course a few meet ups and beers with you all, next sou'westers meet up in Swindon late Jan/Feb?
Sorry for not posting and chatting much this year (2020) shitty last half of the year for me personally, anxiety messing me right up!

Really missed all the meet ups, more than I ever thought I would!

On the collecting side of things I got what I wanted, Bib and Nikto with Anakin offers, thought I'd be really pleased but always a weird feeling completing a focus!

Have a stunning SNES ESB game, complete with original woolies receipt and @Christian sent back my ROTJ game with a stunning case!

Bought some more plates too :roll:

This year will be any Anakin offer figures I've not got. Looking at tie Pilot, Yoda, Kenobi and Han bespin especially! Not looking for much beyond these, besides meeting up and hugging as many of you guys as possible this year!

My 2020 goals were:
1. A couple more significant U.K. store display and/or food related pieces; Yes - 3 store display posters and a HCF pencil sharpeners box
2. The elusive Helix 10 fibre tip pens set; No - still looking
3. The pieces I need to finish my Frankel & Roth bags, Palitoy diecast, and HCF runs; No - but need only the diecast X-wing, and a Han / Gamorrean memo pad for the HCF run.
4. An original trilogy prop or cast & crew item; Yes - a real grail piece for me, a Norway crew jacket from Empire, along with an Empire crew shirt
5. Some great memories from a trip to Finse for Visit Hoth; Yes - a fantastic experience and
6. Some more great friendships within the hobby. Yes definitely - but sadly not so much in person.

I have had a really good collecting year overall, been lucky with a few key pieces and otherwise found some cool items on FB and eBay. I’ve also really enjoyed the Farthest From and other live events online, and contributing to the Vintage Rebellion podcast. I’ve also been gifted a Detolf cabinet for Christmas so I can start to display some of my collection, which is a real treat for me.

My key acquisitions this year:

New / revised goals for 2021 -
1. Agree with Lom, let’s all get vaccinated so that we can meet in person again at Farthest From, Echo Live and other great events.
2. At least one significant U.K. store display
3. The elusive Helix 10 fibre tip pens set
4. The pieces I need to finish my Frankel & Roth bags, Palitoy diecast, and/or HCF runs
5. An original trilogy prop or cast & crew item

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year!

Last year was a write off for me - this year I'm going to build up a loose collection from scratch, without being too fussy about accessories. Wish me luck cos I think I might need it !

I always love these threads, its great to see what people hope to get and have got. Some amazing items shown.

I never got round to setting goals for 2020, mainly as I didnt expect to get much.
However, in reality, I got quite a bit of stuff, which I am very happy with... in no particular order:
i) Spanish PBP/Poch adverts
ii) French Meccano adverts
iii) French Meccano posters
iv) Top Toys Chirpa cardback ~(been wanting a Top Toys cardback for a while)
v) POTF One Man Sand Skimmer instruction sheet (am looking for Imperial Sniper and Security Scout sheets if anyone has for sale)
vi) a couple of lovely Kenner Canada boxes (Cantina and Hoth Ice Planet Playsets)
vii) Boxed Battle Damaged TIE Fighter (been on my list for a while)
viii) POTF Ewok Combat playpack - this was a grail item for me, and completed my trio of the playpacks
ix) Lily Ledy Squidhead
x) Early Bird Display Stand - bought in a bundle with first 12 figures loose - sold the figures and got the stand for nothing
xi) "Wampa" variant boxed Hoth Wampa

I've been trying to put together a mint loose run together for 20+ years now, but being on a tight budget has been tricky but I'm slowly getting there. I did better than expected in 2020 and picked up a few of the last 17.... Warok, Amanaman, Imperial Dignitary (no nose rub) and Luke stormtrooper unfortunately came with a (blue/black blaster) so need to find that.

My goals for 2021 are

1) Lando Calrissian (General Pilot)
2) Luke Skywalker Poncho
3) R2D2 with Pop Up Lightsabre
4) Luke Farm boy (upgrade required)
5) R2-D2 solid dome (upgrade required)


Accessories needed...on these i might end up buying complete loose and sell of the figures off.

x1 Cloud Car Pilot Comlink :lol:
x1 Luke Skywalker (in Stormtrooper disguise) blaster only :lol: :lol:
x3 Leia blasters :lol: :lol: :lol:
x2 Endor Blasters (Black) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
