questionshow many of these star wars figures did you have?


@vinithehat: They are the exact ones I have!! :)

Seriously though, I know the DH had a bunch of different figures, still in boxes, packed away in the closet. I think he gave them to his nephew though, should have looked up the values first.


I had too many to count. But I was never a keep-it-in-the-box kind of kid, I loved to play action figures or set them up all over my room or outside and shoot them down with rubber bands.

My cousin on the other hand never opened up his action figures. He had a whole boat load of the Mego action figures, but he kept them in the box. Drove me crazy when I would go visit him because I wanted to play with the dang things...


That is a fantastic collection... I wonder how much it would have cost to compile...


None. Unfortunately I was past my toy collecting phase when SW came out. :(


I'm not convinced he has 1,950 unique figures. I am 99% sure I see two Princess Leia (in slave girl outfit) in the pictures.


I didn't have any. Now G.I. Joe's on the other hand.....


I was always curious about one of the really old Darth Vader figurines in the auction with the cape that rise up behind his head. Had the designers actually seen the movie, it looks bizarre. I've heard some of the first ones go for over 5k alone, but I don't know if its the one in the auction.


I was curious about the non-profit, I'm not sure what to make of it... Here's a excerpt from their website:

@belowi: It was the same cape as Obi-Wan, just black. Cheaper to make, you know.
I had OW and DV with the light sabers that slid out from their arms. Good times.
