I'm a hoth luke and Dr Evazan away from thinking I'm 99% done with the retail figure game.
The next step is to figure out what I really want to keep for future displays, what the kids/nephews/nieces might want to have someday, and the rest will slowly be put up for sale or away in storage for a decision at a later date.
It's been a fun run, and I'll probably hang around and pick up an item here and there. I don't harbor any bitterness toward Hasbro- my collecting was going to come to an end at some point no matter what. Now it is time to figure out which parts to keep, and which to send to someone elses collection-
I found that Luke and Evazan, and have picked up virtually nothing since. I've been letting some things go, and intend to pick up the pace of decumulating. But I will always have some sort of small collection devoted to George's galaxy.
For me the change is more about my age, my kids becoming teenagers, and other interests of my own- not any decision the big H makes. I'm sure i'm not the first to reach that point, and I won't be the last. I'm still shocked by how much time and money I'm saving.
As I said this spring, no bitterness, it was a good time. And to everyone who is still enjoying it, I hope the line lasts a long-long time.
