    Just Remember every collection starts with just one piece.

    If I was you I wouldn't spend your full pay.
    In time you will know the Items you are really aiming for rather then blowing your money now on an impulse.

    A month!?
    I think I just went nuts in a week... A month is like an overdose.

    College is okay but if you don't have any thing set away for it do stick your money there! My parents work at the local college so free tuiton on this side not to mention what I'm going to get in the Air Force.
    Personaly I think college is easier then high school, is funner and would have dropped out of high school for college if I could have!
    Yes I hated my high school and most of the Anchorage School Distirct. Now I'm going to stop talking about it before I sucum to the dark side.

    If you find college to be a little "why am I here?" consider taking a year off or some thing. Join something like the military that will allow you to travel and pay you while you do so. I'm working on getting into film so travel is a big part of my job. But my Air Force job will help me if I can't make it in Hollywood by offering me training in another field.

    Okay that's enough off topicness.
    Do consider not jumping into the purchasing thing so quickly. It will drain you spiritualy and financialy if you don't watch your self. Plus some times the smallest and cheapest toy can be the best part of your collection. Like my shaved Endor Rebel. He's simple but I love him. And my Yoda puppet that my parents bought when I was a baby. They found him in the toy sale bin at some thing like a Walmart. You could have five toys in your collection but so long as they had a story behind them they could be the best five toys around....

    Last time I was tuaght spelling and grammer was in elementary so thats a bad example. But yes thre are classe one can take to improve in that area in college.










    And just becuase I can't spell and have poor grammer does not make me any less inteligent. Simply focused on other things.

    Good luck with everything --collecting, school, etc. :D

    And the military can be a good choice. I did the Navy for 6 years after high school. After a 3 year break, I got involved in teh Army national Guard a year ago --it's going to help fund some of my costuming projects.

    BTW, the answers to your costuming Q's can be found in the Costuming & Props forums. :D

    so now i gotta decide what to buy first....i have a few toys...just common stuff like the toy lightsabers and a few fugures. i think i'll buy something big and expensive to really get me started though...im really likin those master replicas sabers, so i guess ill buy the vader hilt.

    it woul dbe cool to get a ton of toys, but id have no idea where to begin, there are so many. would it be bets to do it organized like, or to just go to a toys are us and buy a ton??

    I agree they are cool have a couple myself. okay okay I bought them all. But if you are collecting with a tight budget and fear of listening what your parents will say I suggest make your own alot cheaper and it will be one of a kind. try this site very informantive place to start
