    What's your favorite thing(s) in your SW collection?
    What about when you were younger (pre-teen/teen)?
    What one thing in your collection would you keep if you had to get rid of everything else?
    What one thing do you wish you had for your collection? (real things here)

    My fave right now: It was the Acklay til I took it out of the box, darn thing just doesn't look right and the joints are HORRIBLE! and my Darth Vader speakerphone. It came out in the late 80s when no one knew what speakerphone was, way cool! [link=http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/Museum/1192/darthbox.jpg]pic here[/link]
    Younger: I used to carry my Hammerhead figure with me everywhere and a Power Droid. (Yes kids, a long long time ago before Hammerhead had a name)
    Thing I'd keep: my Mission to Ord Mantell record [link=http://www.swbooklist.com/audio/ordmantell33.jpg]pic[/link]
    Wish I had: remote control sandcrawler!!

    What's your favorite thing(s) in your SW collection?

    ~ my darth maul "extremes" or whatever it is statue
    ~ all my brother's original figures and ships from the 70s (some minus heads, limbs, accessories, etc) which he bequeathed to me (ok maybe he didn't, i just ferreted them away "for safe keeping")
    ~ my sebulba podracer
    ~ my barbie-doll-sized amidala i got for $2 :D
    ~ my little readalong record/book which featured artoo and threepio on some mission to this cyborg guy's hideout. the sounds were way cool

    What about when you were younger (pre-teen/teen)?

    ~ all my x-men figures
    ~ the she-ra dolls i managed to save from the terror that is known as the yard sale
    ~ other misc like TMNT figures, transformers (although i never owned any), some barbies which were halfway cool, jem dolls, etc.

    What one thing in your collection would you keep if you had to get rid of everything else?

    ~ the holy trilogy of course

    What one thing do you wish you had for your collection?

    ~ the big millenium falcon

    Dex~ that phone is awesome.

    ok I'm not a huge collector,I usually just get what i like or think is freakin' cool.

    My favorite:would have to be my Stormtrooper garrison.I have at least 4 or 5 of each trooper old and new.working on the Clonetroopers.

    Younger:would have to be the mail order Boba Fett.was so bummed when i opened the box and found out they glued the missle inside the jetpack :mad:

    what I would keep:probably my Bantha,it just looks so cool the way they made it.With all the hair and the Tusken Raider riding on top.

    What I wish I had:It would definately have to be the life size Trooper statue.

    I would have to say the Anakin FX lightsaber I am buying myself for my 16th birthday. (My parents on gonna get it for me..) Also my book and poster collection. I have the teaser poster for episode II along with the art posters for I and II. I have some other episode II posters and I'm gonna buy the special edition trilogy posters. My desk is completely covered with Star Wars books and I am just starting a Star Wars toy collection. (BTW, Toys'r'us has all Star Wars action figures for $4.99.)

    From what I understand, Roy, they're hard to come by. And I still have the box too! :D There's a red light on Vader's chest that goes on when the phone is in use. Haven't used it in a long time but I love it

    The original soundtrack anthology box set.

    I have listened to the soundtrack more than I have heard other people speak. Actually, I'm listening to it right now :D

    WOW!!!!!

    You had the Sears CC Set?? That's sooo cool! I finally got one of those Star Wars Electronic Battle Games (from 70's,i forget the exact name kinda looked like a little console with LEDs) on EBay a few months ago and it doesn't work :(
    But I have one a friend gave me and it works but for one LED. Anyone know if those are hard to transplant?

    I remember that Sears Cloud City playset,I wanted it so bad!! :(

    Dex~ LED's are very easy to swap out,usually just requires a little soldering.You can pick up spare LED's at any Radio Shack.Just make sure that if you do it,to make sure that the polorization is correct(most LED's are polorized),or else it won't light up.

    What's your favorite thing(s) in your SW collection? My graphic novels, and TIE Fighter pilot (POTF 1).

    What about when you were younger (pre-teen/teen)? I am a teen :D

    What one thing in your collection would you keep if you had to get rid of everything else? Give away Star Wars stuff? Take my soul instead...

    What one thing do you wish you had for your collection? (real things here) I'd say the Thrawn action figure as well as some of the stuff from the 70s-80s, as I wasn't around until after... =/

    Yep, came out in the late 90s. There was a "set" of EU figures. Let's see if I can remember...
    Thrawn, Mara Jade, Zero-G Trooper, Dark Trooper, Kyle Katarn, Clone Emperor, Jedi Leia, and Dark Luke.
    Did I miss any? They all had nifty little color backgrounds to stand in front of. And I have to say the Mara figure was bleech!

    Wonderful! Now my Acklay's claws are starting to bend from standing on them.

    i'd say anywhere between $7-8 to $12-13 apiece if memory serves correctly.

    they've usually got alot of the EU figures actually, like mara jade and xizor too. i love that store.

    I just got the Luminara Undulli and Qui-Gon Jinn figures. I'm also starting to collect some of the out-of-print comic books. They put a lot of good info in the comics.

    I love my figures! I have over 200, plus some vintage stuff. I got all the vintage stuff at collectible stores and stuff, since I am only 16. I got into star wars in second grade (1991 about), and bought vintage figures at this local place called "treasured toys", they sold them cheap and in good condition. Then, in 5th grade they introduced the POTF2 line. Anyways, I love my figures a lot and I have 2 Jorg Sacul figures still in the package that I got at C2, I was lucky enough to go! While I was there, I also got Ben Burtt's autograph.

    Woah. You think you can scan a pic of your collection? I have been interested in Star Wars on and off since I first saw the movies. I just started cololecting stuff. I did put a tracing of the Naboo Royal Starship on my 6th grade yearbook page.
