I'm just not really sure if the vintage stuff holds water like SW stuff - not monetary wise, but memory wise.
I was thinking about this the other day....
I was 7 when Star Wars came out and collected them pretty much exclusively until 1982...when for my birthday I got Short Fuze and FLAK Cannon and despite being "too old" for toys..I went pretty much full Joe until College (much to my parent's dismay). I only got a dozen of the ROTJ and POTF figures.
Here is something else that my buddy I collected and "played" Joes with growing up...we think there is more "Media" material that revolves around stories for Joe, than for OT. Assuming one does not include ANY prequel stuff or EU that is later than 5 years after ROTJ.
The Marvel Joe Comic ran for years, the Cartoon and the Cardbacks (and yes the Movie).
Star Wars HAD (it has since exploded) the Movies on VHS or Beta (the first time I saw any video at home was ESB on Beta that my dad borrowed from a guy at work) the Marvel Comic and the Newspaper Comic.
I think this line might have legs...I sure hope it does, I'd like them to get to Lt. Falcon and Repeater.....and complete the original 13 (with Scarlett, Snake Eyes v1 and the rumored Stalker, we are at least headed in the right direction).
