Just wondering if anyone out there actually has all 96 vintage figures. For those of you not keeping score, the POTF card showed 92 figures on the back. Add Yakface, 93. Then add the original Threepio, original Artoo and the Sensorscope Artoo, 96.

At last count, I only have 58 of them, but my next major goal as a collector is to fill in the gaps. Of course, when those gaps include Yakface, Luke Stormtrooper, Han Carbonite and pretty much most of the POTF line then it becomes a slow expensive process.

I have all the Vintage figures that were released,I just dont have the Ewoks and Droids figures that didn't come out,that includes Vlix, which I have had 2 chances to buy,but I didn't want to pay the price they were charging,But I find my collection complete by my standards :)

Got them all mostly loose. I've done trades for some of the last figures in the line with some of the htf FF figures that I found in retail. As an example, I traded my extra FF Sandtrooper for a carded Amanaman! Other figures I managed to get from eBay and I do have multiples of the more common figures plus some of the htf ones which I use for my dioramas. Check out my Ewok Dioramas.

I'm glad you didn't consider "variants" separate figures (i.e. Vinyl Jawa, Small head Han, Brown hair Bepsin Luke, etc.) in your list.
I guess I must have 'em all, since I have all the ones listed on the POTF card, plus the other R2s, C3PO, Yakface, and Blue Snaggs. Droids and Ewoks don't count in my collection.

I really don't consider variants to be separate figures, and to me a complete figure collection doesn't inlcude them. Blue Snags is kind of an exception since he is almost a completely new sculpt when compared to the Red Snags, so he could count, bringing the number up to 97.

Also I was thinking about adding the Rebo Band 3-Pack which would bring the count up to 100. I've also heard Jabba referred to as a figure, not a beast, so he could bring the total up to 101.

Egads, where does it end?

Oh yeah, Ewoks and Droids toys (with the exception of the A-Wing vehicle, A-Wing Pilot and Boba Fett) are most definitely not Star Wars in my book. Vlix be damned!!:p

I call it 100

Though I would agree that the Max Rebo Band and blue Snaggletooth count as figures, I disagree with including Jabba and (especially) Salacious in that mix. Jabba is a tough one to classify, but Salacious, then as now, is no more than an accessory in my book. If you include Jabba and Salacious, why not include the probe droid from the Turret & Probot Playset (103), the Taun Taun (104), Dewback (105), well, you get the idea.

Anyway, no matter how you slice it, I have them all, from the Early Bird Luke (Christmas present in 1977 when I was 12) to (bitterly paid $75.00 loose) Yakface, the only figure I did not know about until years after the line ended. Yakface and Lumat were the only two I did not buy as they came out, including the blue Snags (Christmas present in 1978). I was one of the lucky ones, my mom recognized EXACTLY what Star Wars was going to be from day one, and encouraged my brothers and I to take care of our figures and toys. I was the only one who listened and now I have to have one room of the house just for my collection!

Belly Open Tauntaun as another? Dianoga from the DS playset? The droid form the Droid Factory set? The list could go on and on. I think just 3 3/4" scale figures with SW, ESB, ROJ, POTF, or TriLogo cards should count. Whoops; then that'd take Blue Snaggs out. Dang! Why can't toy collecting be easy, as well as fun?!? ;)

I have the 96 mentioned, plus Blue snags, Rebo Band, big head han, brown hair luke, jedi luke with blue & green sabers, and the droid factory R2. (plus every vehicle and toy except Imp Shuttle)

But though I have four jawas, alas, no vinyl cape!

Oh, and droids/ewoks don't count in my collection neither.

I've got them all, including variations: wind up R2, Droid factory R2, brown hair, tan limbs, big heads, small head, all the droids & ewoks, blue sabers, blue snagg, telescoping luke, etc.

All that I am missing is Vlix, telescoping Ben, telescoping Vader, and the Droids Ewoks prototypes. Unlike GNT, In my opinion I do not have a complete set.

Wow, bb. You just get figures sent to you via mail at random... :p

And, as to "So should the three-legged Artoo from the Droid Factory set count as a separate figure?" No. You can make any droid in that set, so you could have a buncha other figures.

Yep, and next week I am getting an A-Wing Pilot, Warok, Imperial Dignitary and Leia with Combat Poncho. :D

Actually I order them from brianstoys, which I know is unusually expensive but what can I say? I have more money than sense.;) No really, they've been the fastest and most reliable online store I have dealt with so far, so they get most of my business.

Sigh, I'm 14 figures shy of a complete set. Unfortunately most of what I need are the expensive POTF guys. I'll get there...someday.

Then I'll start working on the Droids and Ewoks sets!

I thought I was the only one on this site that gives in and pays Brian's Toys prices!

But you're right, bb, their service is second to none. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't have gotten my last four POTJ figs. They are the only place that seems to always have everything.


(I wonder if I forward this reply to them, I could get a discount?)

To me, reliability, service and (most of all) trust are much more important than price. So far, in my own experiences, Brian's Toys has excelled in those three areas.

(No thanks are necessary BT, but a 25% discount coupon would be much appreciated) :D

No, even though Brian's is expensive, he is probably the best one. I just bought one of the POTF coins I needed yesterday. I give me money as well.

Brian's Toys is the best out there, for some reason, they do have everything. And the higher prices, you pay for quality.

Anyway, I consider myself lucky. My parents were big fans of the trilogy, so my first action figures were the 1985 POTF that my mom got me. I have all of them except for Yakface, they were all played to shreds though. I have very few accesories left.

Counting the originals that I have gotten since then, my count is 78, not counting Jabba or beasts. I also have most of the vehicles and playsets, except for the Death Star playset, Land of the Jawas, and a few others.
