    It's like copper pennies here in the states. If I can create a shortage then mine will be the gold standard and I will be a gazillionaire

    they look great , but I always wonder what drives someone to collect so many of ONE figure in poor-loose condition. 400+ dollars for loose when you could buy something in better condition...just wondering , not bashing..

    Great photo Brad, thats a lot of Chewbacca figures, 177 is 170 more than I have. All mine are diffrent through (Lili-Ledy, TopToys, Glkasslite and 4 different Kenner variations), so just need the Poch variation to be satisfied, so don't worry I will not start compting with you .

    James it's not like I bought all at once so $400 at one time is not the issue. I get them in small groups unless I can get a whole bunch. The largest lot I bought was 28 at C5. Skye has iirc 500 of them. My goal is to beat that. I have been doing this for a few years and it will take a bit. Plus I have secretly been carving a giant vintage chewbacca out of wood in my garage. It's like 12 feet long. I plan on melting them down and making the largest chewbacca in the world!!!!!!

    on a serious note, for the few bucks I spend on them it's just a quirky fun thing to do. In many people's eyes they are worth next to nothing so I can parlay that into a big collection. Just like people try to get the mintiest loose figures possible.

    That's a great display. Reminds me of my Yoda's. I was up to around 80 but had to sell almost all of them last year due to financial constraints (at the time).
