Do You Have a Favorite Character(s) To Collect?
« on: November 10, 2003, 10:00 PM »
Although I know many of us are completists, semi-completists, OT fans, or PT fans, I was curious if any of you have favorite character or characters that you really look forward to, even if there are multiple versions, or maybe only one version.  If you only had room for a collection of your favorite character, or characters, who would it/they be?  For me personally, I like almost all of the Star Wars universe...with some preference toward OT characters.  Although I like them all...Vader, Luke, Leia, Yoda, R2, 3PO, etc....for me its always about Han and Chewie.  I think I have and would buy almost every version of those characters that are released for the most part.  But...I do appreciate the background characters as well, and the whole Star Wars universe...but when it comes down to it that duo is probably my favorite.  Do any of you have "favorites"?

even tho i am one of the 'completists' when it comes to 3-3/4" figures - and i'm a loose completist as well as a carded completist - i tend to just buy what i like out of the rest of the star wars line. except when it comes to my favorite character - boba fett. yeah, i know, that's the lame character that everyone loves because he's 'mysterious' or whatever, but since that day i saw empire back in the day, i just fell in love with his costume, and his history - or lack thereof - and to this day, i still collect anything that has his image on it.

Can't say a specific character really.  But like you mentioned mosnab, I prefer OT over PT in a landslide.  And I'll take aliens and droids over humans any day of the week as well.  The more obscure and "background" the character is, the better also.

Bounty hunters, Imperials, and other baddies are always cool too.

Hmm.  Looks like I pretty much like anything except Han, Luke, Leia, and Lando!   :P

Just about any army-building figure is what I'm always seeking.  Of course out of all the different armies out there I like the Imperial Army the best.

Wow I guess it takes all kinds, but I'll take any human from the OT, preferable a background Military Type, like a Tech, a Mechanic, a Foot Soldier or General.

Ewoks. Missing some vintage, but I've got all the new ones... not that there are all that many...

OT over PT... because PT sucks...

The female characters.  I usually collect one of every figure but I go out of my way to collect posters, mugs, pins etc..  of Leia, Padme and other female characters.

I'll buy any Padme, Obi-Wan (OT and PT), or R2-D2 figure, especially the last one.

Biker Scouts and droids are my only interest. I have special feelings for R2 in particular.
