    $3000+ is my best guess.

    Over 100 novels, comics and sourcebooks, miscellaneous toys, the movies, RS and SotE for N64, all the movies.....

    A hell of a lot of money.

    I voted $250-500, but I think it might be more than that, between the original movies in the theaters (of course that was actually my parents' money--I was too young to have my own), the SEs in theaters, TPM in theaters; the original and SE box sets, TPM on video, a shelf full of action figures, another shelf full of novels, and a Queen Amidala costume.

    Pretty much all the books and games, some rare ones through ebay, upping the ante somewhat. I bet it works out to the GBP equivalent of more than $4000!

    Probably around $400 or so.

    I bought a few Lego sets, the TPM DVD, the VHS versions of all 4 existing films, several TPM tickets, a crapload of EU, and a few games.

    Over $1000 for sure . . . I'm not sure about a specific number.

    The novels and SW:CCG cards alone (lots and LOTS and LOTS of SW:CCG cards . . . absolutely worthless now . . . :mad:) put me over $1000. The other miscellaneous stuff I couldn't begin to add up . . .

    I took a wild guess and said $201-$500. I've bought many books, toys, etc....but I don't think it'll add up to over $500 or $1000(or, more accurately, I hope it doesn't).
