Vintage bad, tree pretty.  Oh, sorry, Buffy-ism there.  

No to vintage, at least not yet.  I'm sort of hanging around stalking the forum but really know diddly squat about the fits.  Some I genuinely don't like, but since I broke my completionist ways, that's not such a big problem.  My main worry is simply getting taken on ebay.  Given that ebay functions on a competitive basis, I'm not likely to be able to score any superb bargains.  Oh well, perhaps in time.  I suspect I would never own a vintage Ewok though. ;)

Hey man, if you're considering collecting vintage then I'd suggest buying a couple large lots on E-bay. I did the same thing when I started to rebuild my personal collection.....I bought two larger auctions ($300-$500 range) and I got a ton of vehicles, and 3 cases of figures that all had weapons and were mint. These collections were bought from the original owners.....not a dealer.....so I had a pretty decent idea of what to expect.

Bargains can be had on E-bay for vintage stuff all the time.......just be patient when searching for auctions.....and if you find one you like...but the price is jumping on it then bail........there will soon be another auction that will please you......patience is the key ;)

Oh, and owning Ewoks ain't so bad ;)

eBay has pretty fair prices.  Have you seen how high Jawa weapons go for?  I wanted to find out everyones eBay name, so I don't get into bidding wars with bretheren.  I'm a vicious sniper.  I haven't bought any SW this month, but I scored alot of Dune figures.  My other passion.  I will list my extras here soon, so maybe we all can get some trades or sales going.

Thanks for the words TopJedi.  In time, I may begin.  So many other things of interest though (Kubricks, Master Replicas, back filling the Riddell helmets) and only so much cash ;)

You are however wrong about Ewoks.  Vile little things leaving fur everywhere, eating cats.  Terrible house guests they are.  All Ewoks must die.  Simple as that. ;D

HA! I have three inside cats and they are all still alive...so no, Ewoks don't eat cats....you're thinking of the furry alien "Alf"...hahahahahhah


I also think it would be a great idea if we all started to post our vintage needs and wants.......I still need a few commone pieces and such.......as I'm sure some of you all do as well.

I still have a small stash of vintage ship parts and etc.

Or afraid ;)  Don't you worry, Brad hates me, I'm just glad to have the company.  

Alf?  Ewoks?  They're all the same to me.  Despicable little furballs best served with a nice Chianti.  I suspect Lucas sponsored Alf to make Ewoks more acceptable to the mainstream.  I can think of no other reason for the show surviving that long.

Just started collecting about 3 weeks ago.  Up to 20 figures now!  The highlight of my collection is a complete Vintage Vader.  Of course it doesn't take much to please me.... :)

Most people wouldn't think of me as a vintage collector, dunno why, I guess cause I'm a bit younger... BUT.... I own about 70 vintage figures, a few dozen vehicles, too....

The reason why I don't come in this particular forum is that I don't have the funds to really add to my vintage collection very often.   :-X

Is your complete Darth Vader figure the one with the double-telescoping lightsaber?  Just curious.   :)
