Where 'text' & 'friend' are nouns
That was very bold of you to say.
Well, I get it. ;)

I have all of the vintage figures, including a trilogo Yakface
unfortunately it has a huge price tag on the front of the card, right above the bubble
I love seeing my Toys R Us and Best Products stickers on my cards; forget the "loss" of value. Especially the $2.99 prices. :greedy:

By the original definition here, I do have all of those plus ewoks and droids (not vlix), but no Blue snaggle.

My R2 with sensor scope is probably sans sensorscope, my original R2 is missing his body sticker. My original Threepio is missing a hand (He saved luke in one of my Luke versus vader scenarios)

My EV-9D9 is also missing a leg...so I don't know if my collection qualifies as complete.

When I first created this thread it was about a year before my bankruptcy that forced me to sell off my entire vintage collection in 2002. Since then I have been picking up a few figures here and a few figures there over the years, and finally decided to do a count today. I have 47 of the 96 vintage loose figures! It'll be 48 when the Romba I won off of ebay arrives in the mail.

Kind of a surprise, I had no clue that I was almost halfway to owning a complete vintage figure collection again.:love:

BB, how's your collection coming???
Well, it's taken a few steps backwards in the last couple of years. :( When the economy went south, I lost a really big client that I did a lot of design work for as well as one of my part time jobs. So, for a few months I was forced to sell off segments of my collection to help pay the bills.

I haven't done an official count recently, but I'm pretty sure that I'm down to less than 20 figures again. But I still managed to keep many of my most prized vintage toys. "Prized" in the sense that they mean a lot to me and were significant toys from my childhood, not "prized" based on secondary market value.

Anyways, things have stabilized for me again, so I'm back to buying the occasional figure here and there. In fact, I just won this figure on Ebay this afternoon:

:love:

I seriously doubt that I will ever reach the point where I get the urge to own all 96 figures again. But I would rather have a few meaningful items than boxes of stuff that I don't care about.

I have a large vintage collection, but I never did get all the figures.

Here are ones I own(ed) and can't seem to find:

Bespin Security Guard (white) - I had 2-3 of these guys and can't find one now
Zuckuss

It's possible they may still be sitting in some vintage vehicle after all these years.

And those POTF figures I remember seeing at retail and couldn't afford to buy at the time:

Barada
EV-9D9
Imperial Dignitary
Imperial Gunner
Romba
Warok

I don't have the A-Wing pilot from the DROIDS line and I couldn't afford to collect the EWOKS at all.
