It seems like a lot of us around here are looking into ways of cutting back, streamlining, or - in some cases - just all out quitting collecting a lot of things. With prices going higher and, for a lot of us, space (storage or display) getting smaller, it starts to make you consider each purchase more and more (at least it does me). Although there are some here who have better self control than others, I think a lot of us over the years have branched out into "other" lines as well. I know that I went from picking up a few loose vintage figures I didn't have as a kid, to a few POTF2 figures, to basically the majority of the 3 3/4" Star Wars line before branching out into (among other things) Marvel, DC, LOTR, Indy, MOTU, GI Joe, SW Unleashed, SW Galactic Heroes, Transformers, and other things here and there. When I think about what to cut back, I often tend to "prioritize" things I collect and narrow it down from there. Sort of a ranking of all the various lines in my head I guess. Anyways, in that sort of terms, what would be the last line/collection you would drop or let go of? If you had to cut things down one by one, which would be the last standing?
Although other lines (that are more limited) would likely be the cheaper option, I would probably be entirely unoriginal and cut back to the Star Wars 3 3/4" action figures. If I went even further, I would probably limit it to just the Original Trilogy figures (and these days, that seems to be a cheaper option anyways). Another thing I always seem to pick something up here and there is Spider-Man stuff, and I suppose continuing on with his rogues/"world"/etc. would be another option. The comic (Marvel/DC) stuff is where my primary "other" interests have been aside from SW, and if I cut down those, I'd probably just focus on Spidey and Batman "worlds". But, overall, I'm guessing it would be down to the Original Trilogy basic figures if I had to cut out everything else. If they continued with the line, I could probably cut it further to just the VOTC/VTSC figures - although I'd miss out on the "all new" stuff, which would be tougher. I suppose it would be significantly cheaper this way though. Its still hard to believe how much things have branched out - at least for me personally - since I first start picking up Star Wars figures again. I never knew there was (or would be) so much stuff out there, and that I'd be picking some of these things up. Anyways, what would be the "last line standing" for you?
