Hi all

Maybe a little off topic but i thought i would just ask the question.....who has renewed their collection into the star wars figures and/or models etc?

I have just got a model of the Millennium Falcon, 5 action figures and posters.

I hope to add to my collection with the boxing day sale on i hope to get some nice models and figures.

This game has really inspired me to collected again.


Anyone else the same?

I don't do the figures or ships anymore, though I used to. Having a 4-year old makes it difficult to start collecting again

I did however recently purchase the following two items (the first I haven't opened yet, due to not having the space in my office to handle it properly, alongside the second one):

http://www.amazon.com/Book-Sith-Secr...1424416&sr=8-1

and

http://www.amazon.com/The-Jedi-Path-...1424535&sr=1-1

The latter one is pretty cool. I haven't cracked open the book yet for serious reading, but all the bells and whistles were fun to look at .

216 action figures, including the first 12, 16 ships and 2 play sets. That is what I get from 5 years of collecting.

Toys? No.

Limited edition premium statues / busts, Replica lightsabers / blasters / armor, and hardcover novels....Yes.

Some places of intrest if you ever decide to move up to collectables.

Check this site out on the value of some of the original action figures:

*Edit* I knew a guy back in the day when they were first released, that had the original Snaggletooth blue uniform, and the telescoping sabers for Vader. The only one I can claim to fame is the leather jawa one, but the dog ate the leather

I've been to that lightsaber site as well. Prices are a bit outrageous even for something simple. 99.9% of what you can buy there, you can do-it-yourself (Jedi style!) for a lot cheaper by going to the local hardware store. A little more time and effort, but would be well worth the experience.

Once my son learns the love of SW (he's well on his way .... he loves to play my Inquisitor killing "dinosaurs" on Dromund Kaas), we'll make it a father-son / Sith-Apprentice hobby to make a few hilts
