As promised in tonight's meeting, I'm kicking off a discussion about collecting Star Wars toys - especially the action figures. To get it going let me talk about my collection. I've been buying Star Wars action figures since the new era of Star Wars toys started in 1995. I focus primarily on regular 3 1/2" carded figures, but have also bought many of the other 3 1/2" items such as deluxe figures, beasts, or vehicles. I'm not into variants and from time to time when figures are on sale I'll buy some extras to open. I still have most of my original toys from when I was a kid though they've went through some years of heavy playing. I've also purchased a few carded figures from the original ESB and ROTJ lines, my favorites being ESB Dengar and ROTJ The Emperor. The most recent figures I've bought are the '04 Admiral Ozzel figure - any figure strangled by Vader is cool - and the Dagobah wave of OTC figures (Yoda, Luke, R2-D2, and Obi-wan). All of which I've found at Meijer stores (I've had lousy luck finding any new figures anywhere else).
