End of 2019 Collecting Review and 2020 goals

Post by lejackal »

2020 :!: S**t we’re old :lol:

So how did everyone do with last years collecting goals and what have you got planned for next year?

Last year I planned to maintain a small display, buy a Graflex and maybe get a Trilogo Threepio.
I got the Graflex ( and sold it again :lol: )
I actually doubled my display case size AND maintained a semi respectable display

0E724F5C-2670-419A-9202-C4880DF0ACCA.jpeg (274.3 KiB) Viewed 1398 times
No Trilogo Threepio though so that rolls onto 2020.
I’d like to add a few more loose figures and maybe a couple of MOCs or boxed items. Possibly a nice loose X Wing again.

Anyway, over to you!

My collecting goal for 2019 were….

1) Luke Skywalker Poncho
2) Warok
3) Imperial Dignitary (without nose rub)
4) Paploo Staff
5) General Madine staff

Only thing on the list purchased was Warok, thank you Monkidoodle.

Decided in 2020 I am going to raise some much needed funds to afford the last few figures/accessories by selling off my duplicates and some of my variations, not ideal but prices seem to be getting more an d more out of reach for a limited budget.

Mine from last year:
1) MISB Snowspeeder! Somebody help me :lol:
2) More Palitoy Jedi w/ trilogo bubble MOCs - would really love to find Luke X-Wing, Han Bespin, and R5-D4 next year
3) Luke 12 back (got him on every other card now so would like to complete the run)
4) MISB Palitoy AT-ST (Hoth scene)
5) IG-88 baggie to complete my ESB set
I did pick up a Han Bespin Palitoy MOC, and the IG-88 baggie, so a couple chalked off. Still no Snowspeeder though. A few 12 back Luke's came up for sale that I passed on, hoping prices on those continue to fall as they have been. So for 2020 I would like to find:

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

My 2019 goals:
1. A couple more significant U.K. store display pieces;
2. The elusive Helix 10 fibre tip pens set;
3. The pieces I need to finish my Westbrook birthday cards, Frankel & Roth bags, and/or Deeko party ware runs;
4. An original trilogy prop or cast & crew item;
5. Some great memories from a trip to Finse for Visit Hoth; and
6. Some more great friendships within the hobby to add to those I’m lucky to have already.
1. Yes - Sphere, Super 8 and Vymura posters, Letraset envelopes, Topps boxes, and carded key chains.
2. No - still looking.
3. Finished my Westbrook and Deeko runs and I now have only 3 Frankel & Roth bags to go.
4. Yes - Jedi cast & crew T-shirt “I hold up under pressure”
5. No - but I will be going next year.

An added bonus was to be asked to be a guest host on The Vintage Rebellion podcast, something I never expected and I am very appreciative of the opportunity, I’m really enjoying it.

Here's my collecting best of 2019:

Here was my goals:

To complete:

12" collection by getting that smegging saber from smeggity smeg face - Stu didn't come good (again) but I did get this from @palifan so ticked off
Dixie Cups - got all of these I think. Got all the SW boxes too
Sigma mugs (5 to go) - nope not a single one
Two R5 cards - way more than that so ticked
Orange and Green Topps trading cards - got both of them. Still need boner card
That stupid little piece from the Jabba Dungeon - still need it
Cloud City Playset - got it

Wow, even though I forgot about this list I did pretty well to complete as many things as I did.

So 2020:

An ESB Boba Fett card
As this is coming much harder just one R5-D4 card I don't have
Sigma mugs x 5 can stay on the list
That stupid little piece from the Jabba Dungeon can stay
A trilogo Luke Stormtrooper

My 2019 aims were...
I want to add more Palitoys to my Run - I have 2 or 3 genuinely rare cards to find, plus 5 or 6 which should come up with a bit of patience- so it would be nice to a few more ticked off.
Added a few more... I'm down to 5 for the run of SW and ESB mocs now (plus some upgrades).
I'd like to complete my study, which will have my collection in. I havent settled on the design yet, but it will be fairly minimal with MOCs on 1 wall, and a large glass display case. Got to get this done and the collection on display.
Done... builders were in during the spring and summer and I have a new display room/office, but I do need to find a nice glass case still for the odd and ends.
Finally, I'd like to move away from just collecting Palitoys and look at some other lines as well as non-toy items
Failed here... I did buy some palitoy MIB vehicles and moc diecasts, as well as added hugely to my mailer run - all palitoys though. I did pick up an Earlybird Certificate from Farthest From, so maybe not a total failure.



2020 goals...

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
Looking for Palitoy mailers and MOCs...

I've had another great year in terms of added to my collection but it has slowed down signficantly owing to the fact it's getting harder and harder to find items on my want list but I have finally landed the following:

TOPPS SERIES 2 UK BOX
PALITOY SEALED KITE
EMPIRE STRIKES BACK LUCITE STAR
HCF PENCIL SHARPENER DISPLAY BOX
PALITOY BOBA FETT MAILAWAY LEAFLET

Next year I plan on concentrating more on my non-Star Wars collection - vintage licnesed sci fi and fantasy toys from the 70's/80's but I am hoping to add the following:

TOPPS UK ESB DISPLAY BOX
TOPPS UK INITIAL STICKERS DISPLAY BOX
TOPPS UK CANDY HEADS DISPLAY BOX
ESB CAST & CREW DAGOBAH INVITATION
TREBOR STAR WARS CHEW BAR DISPLAY BOX
