2020 has not quite been the year that we imagined at this time last year! Despite all the challenges, what are our personal achievements this year, and what are our hopes and collecting goals for 2021?

Last years thread... viewtopic.php?f=1&t=40083

My goals for 2021 will be the same as 2019 :lol:

1. A few more moc.
2. Vinyl Cape Jawa.
3. Kenner Death Star playset with box.
4. Sonic Controlled Landspeeder with box.
5. More moc, cardbacks and boxes with danish price stickers on them for my danish focus.
6. A POCH cardback.
7. A Toltoys cardback.
8. Barada with no coo 1984.
9. Backdrop for the Hero Set.
10. Radio Controlled R2D2 with box.

Maybe I should try to get some of the more easy ones in 2021 Kenner Death Star playset with box and Radio Controlled R2D2 with box :lol:

My goals this year were:

1) Trilogo 70C Nikto, to upgrade my cardback
2) MISB Snowspeeder
3) MISB Palitoy AT-ST (Hoth scene)
4) French ESB for Nintendo Game Boy (L'Empire Contre-Attaque!)
5) Boba Fett baggie
6) 12 Back Luke
7) And any more Palitoy/trilogo bubble MOCs I can find. A Rebel Commander or Ben Kenobi would be nice, I know they both exist

The only one I managed was a Ree Yees for goal 7, so not a complete wash out but a bit disappointing. I haven't bought much at all this year, and unless the world returns to some normality soon I don't see 2021 being any more ambitious for me. So I guess I can just repeat the above, but don't hold out much hope.

My wants for 2020 were not fulfilled really

1. Complete 21 back run mixed Palitoy and Kenner ( all issues/ reseal/damaged) only 3 to go LXW, Wally and R5
Only R5 and a bubble for DSD needed in 2021
2. Acrylic display for my 4 pack save
Didn’t get
3. Begin to collect baggies for 15 pack ( this will take a while!)
Have 4 of these done so will be a while yet to go
4. 12 inch Chewie and Luke ( loose)
Didn’t get, missed out on eBay on a Luke but patience does it

Last year’s goals were:
1. Complete the 12/20 back MOC run - 6 left, all the expensive ones! :roll:
2. Leia Hoth on a Tri Logo with as mint a card and bubble as possible. - been looking for ages for a mint one.
3. ROTJ Biker Scout blaster MIB.
4. ESB Han Solo MOC
5. ESB C3PO Removerable Limbs MOC
6. ESB R2D2 Solid Dome MOC

And the outcome:
1. Still need 4, so not too bad.
2. No...came close on one occasion, but that doesn’t count does it :roll:
3. No
4. Yes and it’s a Palitoy one. :D
5. No, I forgot this one...
6. Yes.

So not too bad really when all is taken into account.

2021 - try to find or more realistically afford the items left on the list and to still have fun and enjoy doing so. :D

3. ESB Palitoy open belly Tauntaun-Done
4. ESB Palitoy Snow Speeder-Still looking
5. ESB Palitoy AT-AT-Still looking

My 2020 goals were:
1- a trilogo RL Threepio (rolled over from previous years) - nailed this
2- add a few more loose and MOC - I actually moved on most of my stuff and dived into other lines/collections

For 2021 I’m going to mostly be focused on other stuff I think, starting with some more Play Asterix items. Star Wars might see an addition or two, although I’ve not really got a plan.

Well what a year...

Last year my collecting goals were:

1. Get the palitoy run knocked on the head - or just so I'm looking for C3PO on a 45a for ever more.
2. Find a palitoy mailer 4-Lom and Rancor Keeper
3. Find a Palitoy ESB store display hanger
4. Nice boxed Earlybird Kit
5. Add some proof cards (if the market returns nearer to sensible levels)
6. Add some Non-toy items (got a long list I'd like but will have to see what comes up).
7. Get my loose run on display and a display case for everything else

Mixed bag - I finished my Palitoy first 20 run but split the ESB run and downsized that considerably. I did get a Mailer Rancor Keeper, but no 4-lom yet. I found an ESB hanger which I love and also managed to add some proof cards... fairly successful then really!

Next year I honestly dont know what will happen. Splitting my run was a relief, as I was hunting items which I didnt care for, just 'because' - I doubt I'll buy anywhere near as much in 2021, although do want to keep my hand in.

Since becoming a Dad this year I've switched much of my spending onto life stuff rather than spending hundreds or thousands on items just to put into a display case. I'm at a crossroads I think.

My only aim for 2021 is to nail my display and get it how I want it - maybe a few new items, but mostly it's down to consolidating what I already have.

Yes I know how you feel, I spent much of this year pondering over whether I should considerably downsize my collection. I only ended up selling a couple of things this year, but I'm fnding it harder to justify having expensive 'stuff' in cupboards while, although my family aren't going without anything, the money could undoubtedly be spent more constructively. We will see...

I didnt complete my loose collection.
Still need to get about 5 i think.

Added a Darths TIE and a TIE moc so pleased with those.

Also picked up a Greedo and Hamerhead moc.
Added others i hadnt planned on getting and also moved quite a few on to pay for the new additions

2021

Maybe complete my loose.

Hopefully pick up a Snaggletooth moc and some more of Jabbas mates mocs like Weequay.

That will be more than enough and looking forward to it.

Hopefully I will complete my loose figures, think I have around 6 to go!!

Then 15 of the last 17 to go, but think they will be Birthday/Christmas purchases to be honest.

I do want to start collecting POTF2 freeze frame MOC's but think that will take a back burner until I get the loose collection finished 👍😁
