I thought I was mostly out of the Star Wars action figure collecting game.
Got so many and sadly most are now boxed as other areas too over instead. I can never truly escape though ;)
Having fun again with XWA has rekindled some of my Star Wars love. So even though I was going to pass on these I gave in eventually. ;)

I still have my original ones, or the ones I got later I suppose.
It's great seeing these "vintage" ones though looking so nice and box fresh ;)

Noice. I just got myself a 1:6 scale sideshow TIE pilot. The detail is astonishing, but I'm trying to decide if I want to chance painting my personal bucket details on. I also just got a TIE pilot bust, and am still looking for a Greek or Roman style bust of Palpatine. I wanna put it on like a pillar in my office and be WAY over the top about its decor.

Gotta pic? I wouldn't personally paint on it unless you think you will never resell it. Would decrease it's value and appeal likely.

Not a chance in hell. I buy this crap for me and me alone.
