What would U buy if there was no SW to buy?
« on: April 9, 2005, 08:36 PM »
If you weren't collecting Star Wars merchendise, what would you wind up spending your money on?

I myself would have a bigger CD collection and more DVD's.

DVDs, Video Games, possibly other toylines, LEGO sets, and other miscellaneous junk.

I would probally spending some of the money on DVD's the rest I would save for a house.  I'm planning to start saving money for that reason,buying a house, so that in the near future I can get a house of my own.

I'd buy video games, CD's, and DVD's. And my room would look a WHOLE lot different too. :P

Well I would definately have more video games, dvds, and cds, but most importantly I would actually have a computer that works.

I'd drive a newer car and a nice Sea-Doo as well.

It would be something else that's superfluous that's for sure... I buy star wars as a hobby, an extra.  I would never put it before home ownership or anything like that.

So, probably some other toy line... I'm also considering buying a complete Edo Period suit of Samurai Armor - I'd probably already have that.

I bought myself some highlights today, those are costly- I could have bought around 14 action figures (on sale)...
I also bought some clothes- 15 action figures...
oh well... life moves on and have to look cute for Spring...

My free spending money all goes to Star Wars... I probably might get a few vintage GI JOE things here and there, but not much.  I'd have thousands of extra dollars in my savings account probably... or at least a new car.

Novels. Lots and lots of novels.


I loves me some novels.

And DVD's too. Although Episode 2 and Spider-Man were the first DVD's given to me...

Well depending on the context of the question, if there was no modern SW to buy, I'd be buying vintage SW. If there was no SW at all, I'd probably be buying CDs, DVDs, and/or video games. Always something to spend your money on...  :-\

Hmm...  If I wasn't buying Star Wars stuff, I could probably afford to buy ourselves a nice mansion instead.  :-[

But on the "collectibles" side of things, I guess I'd probably revert back to my vintage baseball card collecting ('50s & '60s), which I have laid off of since the early 90's.  Might start dabbling in model railroading again too.

I'd probably pick up the pace on the CDs and DVDs as well, but since those are usually being bought concurrently with the SW swag, that's nothing too noteable, I guess.

I'd also delve back into vintage SW (if that's separate enough in this case to still be around).

I'm sure my wife would definitely love the idea of SW going away for a while though...  ;)

And i'd still be buying other toys - Stikfas, StreetFighter, odd McFarlane piece oh and my Clerks inaction stuff.
