I gotta agree with Jesse, I envy the position you're about to find yourself in Matt. Being able to open all the boxes and seeing all the vintage and the cherished memories rushing back at you, it'll be fun for sure. Make sure to take some pictures and post them for posterity and so the rest of us can live vicariously through you for a few moments.

I may have my whole vintage collection back, but one thing I (still) don't have is a digital camera...  :-[  Yep, I'm a loser like that, unable to assimilate into the new millenium here.  Scary technology, and all that stuff, ya' know...?

But I can take some "regular" pix, and make copies at Costco, and just send them to everyone!  :P

Some day I'll get with the program.  I swear!  ::)

You can take regular pix and have Walmart throw them onto a CD for you, then you can upload them to the web.  ;D Many places are doing that nowadays, I would guess Costco would as well.

Back when the original movies came out. I was at the age when I thought I didn't need to play with toys anymore. Escpecially little plastic jobbers. I was into the old 12" GI Joes.

The only vintage figure I managed to get was a single Yoda which I still have. It looks like the day I bought it since it was never played with.

Of course over the last 8 years with the internet or more specifically eBay. My lone vintage Yoda has spawned a nice vintage collection. I think I was making up for what I missed out on back in the day.

Pretty accurate description of me as well.  13 years old - sports, girls and soon beer took over.  Twas the end of my 12" Joe phase as well.  The last I got was the talking, bearded commander with Kung Fu grip.  Sold it last year for about $175. 

Never owned a vintage star wars piece until about 2003.

Ah, the kung fu grip. Most of my old joes ended up with battle damage at the hands of firecrackers.

:D

That was the fate of the majority of models I built.  That was my other love of the time, WWII model building.  I had an absolute fascination with German war machinery and British airplanes.

This weekend I was able to pick up a couple other vintage pieces from my parents' house that were just collecting dust.  The only two vehicles I had as a kid - the Falcon and a Snowspeeder.  Neither of which is in really "mint" condition, as they were originally hand me downs from my older cousins, then to me, then through my brother, and now back to me :).  The snowspeeder is in pretty good shape, although the cable must still be floating around my parents' house somewhere.  The Falcon is a little worse for wear though, and missing a lot (it always was though).  Either way, it brings back those memories, and its nice to have them again.  I still don't have a modern Snowspeeder in my collection (someday hopefully as its one of my favorite vehicles), so the vintage one has gained a spot on the vehicle shelf with the modern vehicles.  It was funny seeing the POTF2 Falcon and vintage one side by side...I hadn't really done that "in person" before, and they basically the exact same ship.  I knew that already, but seeing it in person really drives that home...and reminds me yet again that we need a modern Cloud Car :P.

I still have the shoebox that I kept all the figures in, along with a plastic case for all the guns that didn't lose to the vacuum.  The only items I have displayed in my "collector collection" from my own childhood set is an Xwing and a Battle-Damaged Tie.

I have everything up until the POTF collection. By the time that collection came out, I was in highschool and discovered girls and booze and many other recreational things to throw away my money on.  ;D

Oh and for some reason, I never got the x-wing fighter.

I sold off al of my Vintage Star Wars Toys (along with just about every other toy I owned) about 10 years ago when I needed some scratch for bills/car repairs/etc :(

Any Vintage I have now was aquired through e-bay lots and have become customizing fodder as they really don't stand up, detail-wise, to the newer toys :(

I currently have a TON of Mini-Rigs (several multiples of all except for the stupid steam roller one and the crappy little tank), several Vintage TIES and a TIE Interceptor, 5 or 6 Landspeeders, most of a B-Wing (missing battery cover and wing-tip guns- all easily replicable), an Imperial Troop Transport, 3 mostly complete Deathstars, 3 Falcons (2 complete, 1 missing the gun and radar dish), and a ton of other items that I'm forgetting right now.

I only have about 50 Vintage figures, mostly droids, as I really do not care for the look of the Vintage figures compared to the modern ones.

That's all I can recall off the top of my head as I look at the checklists.

Here's what i've aquired as of the past few years:

- ROTJ Chewbacca MOC
- C-3PO w/detachable limbs & backpack

I'm hoping to eventually get 12back SW, ESB and POTJ Chewaccas MOC to complete my vintage Chewie collection...
