Most people here already know that I'm an avidly obsessive compulsive carded and
loose completist. That entails every figure of the modern era.
I don't get into the real serious variations and production errors though. Just some of the intentional figure or card changes like bloody hand Bespin Luke, Endor Han brown/blue pants (and soon Hoth Han w/ brown/blue coat), white/silver belt lever on Han, Yoda w/ "Episode 1" text, Theater Luke, etc. I do pick up all the carded figure rehashes whenever they hit new cards though (not another loose though, unless the figure or accessories changed as well). Still need 5 freeze frame figures to polish off that little issue, including, of course, the highly coveted FF Weequay. Ouch.
All the vehicles, beasts, playsets, and everything else in the 4" line too of course.
thing I still need (as evidenced by my wants list) to complete the standard modern line is another Episode 1 Battle Amidala
to open for the loose collection. That's it. She's the current thorn in my side to carded and loose modern completion
, and like everything else that I've acquired in my collection over the past 8 years, I absolutely refuse to pay more than a buck or so over retail to acquire her. So I'll just continue to be patient and wait for another great deal to come my way! But I have a lot of good friends and trading buddies who I owe some serious thanks to for hooking me up with some of the VHTF stuff that I never saw in stores!
In the world of Vintage
collecting, I only need a loose Yakface
to complete my entire loose set. Haven't quite yet started the carded collecting there, but I plan to soon - and am somewhat dreading it (cost-wise). But it'll be fun!
So that's me in an obsessive compulsive collecting disorder nutshell...
