    Female Star Wars collector, here!
    I only got into Star Wars this year, so I don't have that much stuff yet. I'm hoping to get more stuff for Christmas so I can add to my small collection. All the same, I love my Emperor Stitch, and Darth Vader toys. :)

    I've seen that Vader plush in the local toy store.

    Welcome!

    Emperor Stitch looks so huggable. Does he get a lot of hugs?

    He does! He gets lots of hugs and kisses, and has Vader and me for his ohana.

    Ahaha, my mom bought me Dark Horse's Boba Fett omnibus as an early Christmas gift. :D
    I suspect the 9-hour plane trip back home, once Thanksgiving week is over, will be a lot less boring...

    That's a good omnibus, especially if you haven't read the comics already. The Yavin Vassilika one is one of my favorite stories. (Not too crazy about the art but I loved the story.)

    It's indeed a great story. My copy of the TPB is falling apart, so I've been considering buying the Omnibus so that I would have a spare copy.

    Nope, the only Dark Horse comics I've read yet are the four Open Seasons issues and the Grievous graphic novel. So whatever's in the omnibus is new to me. Looks like it'll be a good read. :)

    If you're a Fett fan it's a great read!

    If you're a bounty hunter fan, it's a great read. Hell, Yavin Vassilika is simply a great read.

    I just gave in to my basest desires and bought the Sideshow 1/6th scale Gree. *sigh*
    I seriously thought about going for Ganch instead, but as a redhead, Gree is the perfect addition to my Sideshow Rex and Cody. The biggest drawback is that we'll have to live on breadcrumbs and water for a while ...

    Hello all!

    I haven't been a part of the collecting community for many years. I used to be one of those people who picked up every action figure I could get my hands on, but that has since waned. Most of my collection is now in plastic tubs and I can't really remember the last time I even bought a figure (with the exception of anything Han Solo ;) ). I thought my collecting days were done. Well, I was wrong.

    I got the collecting bug once more and this time, it's not for action figures, but rather, autographs. I'm not sure if we have any other autograph collectors on here, but it would be cool to be able to talk to others about it and maybe share some tips and other advice (I'm still a newbie at this! :p ). My collection is still fairly small, but here are the signatures I have so far: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew (x2), David Prowse and Ray Park.

    Wow you've got Harrison's that cool! I have a pretty extensive sci-fi stars autograph collection that's really started thanks to so many stars coming to my local con and not charging tons for signatures.

    For Star Wars I have Peter Mayhew x3, Daniel Logan, Jeremy Bullock x3, Billy Dee Williams x4-5, and Kenny Baker & Nalini Krishan. I have Ray Park and Warwick Davis - but they signed non-SW stuff.

    I had David Prowse but lost it.

    March if all goes well I'll be adding Carrie Fisher to my list at Emerald City Con (and get Ray Park to sign a Maul piece for me) and Sam Witwer will be at my local Phoenix Comic Con - I've got an awesome Maul photo for him to sign.

    That's awesome! And I'm glad to see I'm not the only one! It seems as if you have quite a collection yourself!

    The Ford was one thing I thought I would never have, but never say never!

    I saw you started another thread for autograph hunters, so I'll refrain from posting images here and I'll do so in the new thread. I just need some time to scan everything in and organize. Expect a post sometime later! ;)

    I want to get into autograph collecting, but some of the people I want to get autographs from haven't made the trip across the pond (Catherine Munro, I am looking at you) to somewhere that would be financially feasible to get to.

    The new Tomb Raider game came out recently and the best edition came with the Lara Croft Play Arts Kai action figure. It's really neat and a great addition to my collection.

    I'm looking to get the new Baird figure from Gears of War: Judgement at some point but I don't know where's best to get it from.
