Thread: Vintage toys you would íNEVERí collect.

  1. #11
    Double-telescoping Obi-wan and Darth Vader. I would love them however I can buy a car for what complete ones are going for loose. Content to look at pic's of those.

    Yeah, if you go with those lines, prototype fett as well. Cost more than some houses. (Depending on states of course )

    Droids and Ewoks figures (I really wish I had collected all of these back when nobody else wanted them)
    Same here. Too costly.
    Also most things that are bulky, playlets /vehicles , as they take up a decent amount of space.
    Lastly, in general I don't collect early/mid 80's GI Joe figures, mainly due to the O-ring /rubber ring situation on the waist/torso area, they can/do deteriorate , then you're left fixing a figure.

    That's why I stopped collecting joes. Also the plastic gets brittle . Broken feet and thumbs happen without trying. Sold them off and paid for my last 17

    Do you have an example picture of one? Would love to see it.

    I've never been interested in the micro collection stuff.

    Droids and Ewoks stuff never interested me.

    Iíve always LOVED the Droids and Ewoks lines, even though I can say objectively that both the shows and the figures arenít too great. But as a kid, I was all about it. Although they certainly didnít help the Kenner line, they werenít really directly responsible for its demise, as it was dying by then anyway. Today, as an adult, I can appreciate them for their campy kitschy place in the Sagaís history. They are some of my favorite pieces in my entire collection.

    As for something I wouldnít buy? Heck, if Iíd buy those freakish things, I guess Iíd buy anything!

    But really Iíd hesitate to buy any super-rare and expensive item unless it were professionally graded as authentic.

    No interest in the Droids and Ewoks lines (a common theme it appears), no vehicles or playsets (I have one playset exception for my collection), no 12" figures and no Die Cast (except Micro Collection, I love those guys). Ok, it probably would have been quicker to list what I would collect.
