As much as I like the new figures, You gotta remember the feeling as a child when you got to go to the toy store to get a new Star Wars figure. It was the best because you knew you were gonna go home and play with it and have battles with it, ect. Now, you just buy it to put it in plastic covering and collect it..That's my personal view on it.
I agree a 100% with you Sean!! I used to be a HUGE vintage collector, but with all that new stuff coming out, I kinda lost focus in the past 2 years... but now I'm going back at it, and the feeling of these old toys is great!! Brings back a lot of memories, and the smell of old plastic and cardboard is awfully familiar... Plus, I don't think they came anywhere close to the old packaging when it comes to originality/quality.
Except that some old vintage toys smell like cat pee and are yellowish...
