I really think you're all pretty lucky having had the privledge of picking these figures out as a kid though. I wasn't born until 84, so by the time I was into Star Wars figures (87 or so), there weren't many around for me to pick.
As a kid, the only vintage figs I had were Bespin Luke, Sandperson, Nien Numb, Royal Guard, and one of the figures from the Ewoks line.
They all ended up being sold in an auction in the early 90's.
Anyway, do any of you ever get a little upset when you realize your days of playing with these toys are becoming more and more distant?
I've noticed that, when introduced to childhood toys, the fond memories are sometimes cancelled out by the longing of wishing those days weren't over. Its sometimes a little saddening to see how fast time goes by.
