Hi there, I've just signed up as I'm looking for a few valuations but thought I should share a few pics of my collection too. Like most people my age I had the Kenner/Palitoy toys when I was a kid but sold them all in the mid 80s to fund a Transformers habit!

I started collecting them again while I was at University in the mid 90s and picked up around 95% of my collection before the prices started to go crazy in the early 2000s. I had all the newer POTF2 range and lots of vehicles and playsets but thined the collection down a bit about 15 years ago, just retaining a complete set of vintage loose figures, a few carded ones, my favourite vehicles and lots of R2-D2s as he's my favourite character :)

Nowadays I don't buy much to add to the collection, although I have been trying to improve the quality of a few of my figures over the last couple of years and occasionally pick up something newer if it takes my eye.

Here's a few recent pictures of some of my collection (I also collect retro video games). Sadly I can't display the full set of loose figures so I rotate them around once a year.

Yes as mentioned above it was from IKEA but no idea if they still do them as I bought it about 10 years ago! I had to paint the top and bottom black as at the time they only have them with a fake woodgrain style.
