I prefer GG and Sidshow pieces. Hasbro doesnt do it for me anymore.

I collect all Star Wars but recently i have gotten into the heavy collecting of art and vintage. Vintage because I finally have some money and the art because i just acquired a trailer house for which to house my collection in.

Mostly Episode 1 carded. I'm after Collection 2 mostly. I am also after the Vintage Collection, really trying to get my hands on the Zuckuss and 4-LOM set. I would have got one at CV, but I had no idea they had them.

Loose vintage.
Carded VOTC.
Carded POTF2.
Carded 2010 Vintage.
Carded Saga Legends. (Casually, I don't plan to have all of them. I basically want them for the UPCs so I don't have to cut my vintage cards.)

There are plenty more lines I am wanting to collect, but I figured I'd stop with 5 lines.

potpourri of stuff that catches my eye.

I'm always game for a good deal on a Kenner vintage toy I don't already have.

I'd like to grab up few more Micronauts items.

I'm cutting way back on modern figures, just grabbing a few here and there.

Trying to get all the comics.

I was big into GG but I've REALLY switched focus to SS. 1/6 figures, LSB, Dios, 1:1, a little bit of everything. I collect Koto, Efx, RAH, art work, autos, comics, trading cards, even some Hasbro. I do still collect a little GG but they're so hit and miss and I don't really want to go into a long rant about all the things GG should change/fix so I just get very selective as to what I get.

I am collecting only figures now. Not even the 2 packs or anything, just carded 1 figure each. I stopped with the vehicles, 2 packs (since they are almost 90% repacks) and evolutions due to the fact that they are almost all rebel pilots and imperial pilots.
I am quoting myself becuase my collecting habbits have changed. I am now getting more and more into Gental Giant collectables. Let's see how this pans out in the future shall we? Right now I have on the way, a Boba Fett statue. Should be fun to display that.

I used to collect the 3.75 inch figures, the vehicles, the weapons, and the Titanium series pretty much exclusively. Now though I'm getting into a more all inclusive collecting. Clothes, board games, anything, I'll get.

It used to be whatever I could get my hands on. These days it's slowed to Jedi Luke's and Ewan as Obi-Wan items.

Sorta strange here but mainly vehicles (seem 2 hold up better) in my collection so far. While I have such items as an at-at and slave 1, I also go for some of the more unusual items such as my vader don post mask or my unopened Jabba the Hutt shampoo bottle. Its wierd because while I have several unpunched, carded origionals, I can honestly say at this moment I have not 1 loose figure.

I used to collect anything that was Star Wars related. I have switched to primarily 1:1 scale items - prop replicas, studio scale, statues, etc.

I have been purchasing some vintage stuff that reminds me of my younger days including lunch boxes, toy lightsabers, and finishing my loose vintage figure collection.

Oh, and some cool art work.

I mostly collect 1 of a kind things when it comes to Star Wars. My main focus is autographs, with focus on the more rare/difficult examples like Eddie Byrne, Jack Purvis, Peter Cushing on SW and the like. I'm working on two cast signed posters now, one an ingot from the only sit down Harrison Ford poster signing and the other a vintage Style A ANH with Guinness and Cushing on it already. I focus almost exclusively on OT. I also collect signed limited edition hard back Star Wars books.
At the moment I'm also finishing up a OT marvel star wars comic run 1-107 in high grade. The 35 cent issues have been difficult. Lastly star wars wise I collect original comic art. Not to many pieces but you can find it from time to time.

I collect autographs both PT and OT for Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I especially love multi signer pieces, especially posters (I have TOO many)...I also collect Star Wars Legos (I have 95% or so of the ones ever made...tha darn Cloud City will come around some day). Lastly, I collect the modern Hasbro action figures, though someday I would like to start with vintage.

For the most part I collect anything having to do with 3.75" figures. Vehicles, figures, and both modern and vintage. No CW figures though. However I bounce around between vintage and Modern and I am currently on modern although I hope to complete my loose vintage set.

I collect statues/busts, prop replicas, and SW prints/artwork for the most part. EFX, Gentle Giant, Sideshow, Acme.
I've stopped buying toys/Hasbro and purged most of it from my collection.

Aside from 1/6 scale,Sideshow. I just recently got into the Ultimate Quarter Scale from Diamond Select.... got Ben Kenobi for $32.50 shipped and ROTS Kenobi $46.00 shipped.(They retail for about $80 each) Nice figures for the price and the detail isn't all that bad. Not to mention that they say lines from the movies! I really wanted to get into 1/4 Premium Format and I figure this would be a good stepping stone.

I'm in a serious lull when it comes to collecting interest right now. Outside of 3.75" figures based on ROTJ aliens and creatures, I don't have much interest in Star Wars collecting or collecting in general for that matter. Marvel comics is my other big hobby, but I'm just so frustrated with what that company is doing (or not doing) with my favorite characters, that I find it hard to maintain a constant interest right now.

I think I'm just tired of spending money on stuff, that's my main problem.

I have been collecting 3 3/4 figures for awhile (nearly 15 years) both modern carded and recently I bought loose vintage figures. I did buy the early lego sets and sometimes I buy the odd set that catches my eye over the years. I have a collection of titanium ships and also have subscribed to the DeAgostini magazine. I do have a small collection of trading cards, electronic games, plush toys, Chubbies and other stuff I can't remember.

J have large collection of Galactic Heroes!:D

3 3/4 figures are my main focus.

I have lots of the 3 3/4" figures, most of the original line, loose, missing a few of the POTF 85 figs. Most of the 1995-current line, though I stopped buying alot of re-paints and figures where I already have the same chacter/costume, unless it is a great improvement over the previous sculpt. I most have loose, but I do have about 100 carded figures that are doubles of ones I have loose.

Lots of books comics, and video games.

I also have some of the old Master Replicas LE lightsabers, some FX lightsabers, and a handful of Gentle Giant busts.

I also have assorted things like fast food prizes, posters, etc... things I get if they cross my path, but I don't really go looking for.

I do like to find anything to do with the original Kinghts of the Old Republic game, there's not much of this. I have a poster, a standee, a pewter lightsaber letter opener, and of course the Revan and Malak figues, Revan and Malak busts.
