It really seems like there has been a resurgence of interest in "other collectibles" in the past year or so, with the release of items like the Master Replicas line, Dark Horse Mini Busts, Kotobukiya Vinyl kits, food promotions, etc. However, what seems to go unnoticed are all of the items from the neo-classic era for Star Wars (mid-90's - pre-prequels). Ive been going back and looking through Jawa Traders and whatnot, and there were some absolutely fantastic items back then! And the best part is, they are at rock bottom prices if you know where to look.
So, what are some of the neo-classic items that interest you the most? What do you have, and what are you trying to find?
One of my favorite lines is the Riddell Mini Helmet line. Easily my most cherished collectibles from Star Wars. It is a line I wish every day could make a comeback, as it has world of possibilities!
Right now, Im also starting to work on the Legends in 3D bust line. They are really down pricewise, and I've had some good luck so far. So far I've won two on Ebay (Greedo and Cantina Band Member) for $25 and $45 respectively. About twice the size of Dark Horse mini busts, and in the case of Greedo, at half the price!
I also want to collect the 70mm film frames. I don't have any yet, and Im trying to hold out for large lots or complete sets, but the prices look really great on Ebay right now (as low as 6-7 bucks)
So what other neo classic items are there out there? What stuff did you love, what did you hate? What are you trying to collect now, or what do you have? Anyone trying to sell Legends busts or film frames?
