Hi everyone. Although I'm a new member, I've been browsing around on this site for almost three months now. I'm friends with a few members and they have sung the praises of this site so much that I just had to sign up.
I've been collecting SW merchandise for only about 18 months. My collection starts with EP1 up to Saga II, but I was a little late for the VOTC, so I missed out on all of those in the stores. I haven't brung myself to pay the secondary market cost for that collection so it's going to be the only void I have.
My plan is to pass everything I have purchased on to my two sons when they are old enough to play with it. Right now, the boys are 2 years and 11 months old, respectively. Although I assure my wife that the little one won't swallow any of the small parts, she won't let them near anything for at least another 2 years. (Yes, before you ask, everything is MOC or MIB and it's taking up a rather large portion of my house at the moment.) Needless to say, I haven't listened to her entirely and bought the older one a basic lightsaber when ROTS came out. He's quite adept at making sound effects and using it to scare the dog.
The only parts of my collection that they will not get their hands on are my Darth Vader and Darth Maul Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers. Those are for me!
I haven't decided if I'm going to get the Anakin and Luke ones for them to play with when they are MUCH older...
That's me. I look forward to a long stay here. Thanks!
