    Please add onto the list!

    You know you?re a STAR WARS collector when?

    1. You know the location of every Target, Walmart, K-Mart, K-Bee Toys, and Toy R Us stores within a 50 mile radius of your house.
    2. You?re on a first name basis with the clerks at these stores.
    3. You feel no remorse for snatching figures right out of the hands of children.
    4. You feel ridiculously euphoric about finding a $7 figure that you?ve spent the last month looking for.
    5. You?ve nearly lost friends getting into a box/ debox debate.
    6. You can?t stop yourself from visiting every yard sale that you drive past on the weekend in the vain hope of finding an elusive STAR WARS item.
    7. You ate 6 weeks worth of Burger King food to obtain all 31 of the ROTS toys, even though you loathe BK food.
    8. You have a love/hate relationship with Hasbro ? no matter how many times you declare you?ll never buy from them again ? they always suck you back in.
    9. At Christmas you get more toys under the tree than your 10 year old nephew.
    10. The walls in your bedroom are wallpapered in carded SW Action figures.
    11. Your family members wonder when you're going to ever grow up and stop buying toys...and you can care less what they think about your spending habits.
    12. You hide your SW items under your bed in hopes that your family will never discover your "secret" stash.

    13. You look down your website bookmark list and realize that the majority are either Star Wars sites or online stores..

    LMAO! [face_laugh] Yeah well - I didn't say that the first 12 posts related directly to me ;)

    15. You require upsizing your moving van because you have more boxes of SW stuff than funiture [face_blush]Guilty!

    16. You spend hours agonizing over how you've got your items displayed and use "readjusting" them as an excuse to play with your toys :p

    This is no word of a lie I know I am a collector cause I buy that much of it my postman is starting to get abit cheesed off cause he constantly is delivering parcels to my house, he also delivers to my dads g/f's shop where she works and asked her if he can post it there instead for her to take home [face_laugh]

    well that is there job to post.

    When I come to buying my own house soon I am only interested in 2 - 3 bedroom house one room for me to sleep in and the other two for my star wars if they are back to back I will just knock down the wall and have it as one. I also have decided that I am going to have a full size boba fett or any other star wars character to stand in my hallway so when people come round they are greeted.

    - When the only reason you vist your local museum of science and technology is so you can see the vintage Wampa toy in the glass case in one of the collections of old fashioned objects.

    - You'd rather live off nothing but baloney and bread for three weeks and buy Star Wars figures than have real food and wait a bit for them.

    - You're at work and supposed to be working, but instead spend half your time posting here...oops...[face_blush]

    You reorganize the figures in the Star Wars aisle by character and in numerical order.

    You have more dreams about figure hunting than Jennifer Love Hewitt (Enter your celebrity crush here). It's true. Sad, but true.

    You know you're a fan if:

    - You've ever donated bodily fluid for extra cash to buy Star Wars stuff (especially twice a week).

    Is it bad when your like all of these, but does it count about taking it out of a kids hand if he was getting ready to put it back on the shelf. Also i can't do the one about the bodily fluids cause there is really no place near by that will give me money for that.

    There was a place I used to go to donate plasma...they paid you like $25 the first time in a week and like $30 if you went a second time. Sure, I had a job, but it didn't support living expenses AND my Star Wars habit...

    When...

    - Every time you see a semi bearing the name of your favorite retailers, you speculate endlessly about the huge amounts of rare figures and items that may lie within...and tell yourself that hijacking the truck is not worth the time in jail...

    -when all you do is tell others about your starwars collection.
    Even though they dislike starwars. :)

    (btw, I can't keep my figs on my walls of my bedroom.
    My 10 year old sister brings her friends in my room and they almost tear open my figs and play with them, it's never happened almost but I cought my sister's friends and my sister in the act)

    guilty of almost all of the above. [face_blush]

    -when you keep an itemized checklist with you of what SW figures you have so that when you go to the store you will remember what you have.

    You tattoo your favorite characters on your body so that you have them with you always. I currently have the Animated Clone Wars Yoda on my right forearm and the Animated CW ARC Trooper on my left forearm.

    You're a collector if...

    - You've ever agreed to spend an hour in the women's underwear and bra section with your significant other as a trade for dragging them to the Star Wars toy section...for five minutes...

    It's even better if it's a Star Wars credit card.
