Vintage Kenner / How Deep will I Sink?
« on: June 29, 2003, 02:16 AM »
When I started collecting modern figures, I decided all I wanted were a few of the main characters.  Soon I wanted one of every figure, but no beasts or vehicles.  Then I wanted beasts and vehicles, but only OT stuff.  Then I decided to pick up a few PT figures.  Finally, I decided to get it all.

Now I have entered the vintage realm.  I got the first 12 as a gift and thought I'd stop there.  Not so.  I've found myself browsing eBay now for vintage figures.

It looks like history is repeating itself.  Anyway, my question is, has anything like this happened to any of you?  How many of you decided only to get figures/certain figures and stopped at that?  How many moved on to other things once completing the original goals?

At this point, my goal is still "just the figures", with no interest in vehicles, playsets, mini rigs, or expensive variatons.  I fear that this won't last.  How many of you have had similar situations arrise?

Vintage Kenner / Take a look at what I got!

Today started off like any other day. I woke up, goofed off around the house, watched some TV.

Then, dad came home from a flea market and called me in to see something. At first I was annoyed, as I thought it would be something I had no interest in.

What he did was present this to me:

(Click Here for Picture)

He had bought me a lot of vintage Star Wars figures. All of the original 12 (including an extra Stormtrooper and Jawa) along with 2 other non-Star Wars figures and a generic Star Wars case (which I will bring up in another thread).

I had stayed out of vintage for a long time due to high costs. However, here in one fell swoop, I have the original 12. He presented it to me as a (very) early Christmas present, as he wanted to be sure I wouldn't buy any of these by Christmas time.

Anyway, as for the figures themselves, they are in great shape for the most part. The Vader's cape is torn unfortunately, and one of the Jawa's, Han Solo, Princess Leia, the Death Squad Commander, and Chewbacca are missing their weapons.

I didn't think it was bad considering only 5 of 14 figures were missing weapons.

Anyway, it looks like I am now into the world of Vintage Star Wars collecting, as I can right now picture my shelf being completely filled with the entire vintage collection.

Saga '02-'04 / Jedi Luke's Robe: Black or Brown?
« on: June 11, 2003, 01:06 PM »
Hello all.

I seriously hope this hasn't been debated already, as I did a search for this and didn't yield any results.

Anyway, there is some debate going on at (evil) RS about the color of Jedi Luke's cloak, and what color it should be when made.

Personally, I always thought the robe was brown like the vintage figure.  It certainly CAN look black at points in the movie, but that is due to some serious backlight as Luke is entering Jabba's Palace.

Anyway, what is your take:  black or brown?

Hello all.

I was referred to this forum by a collecting friend of mine over at Rebelscum.  I have grown tired of the attitude and general lack of disrespect over there, and have decided not to put up with it anymore.  I am hoping that this place can be my salvation from the madness and mayhem that is Rebelscum!

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone here!  So....
