Thanks for the kind words and welcomes Commander Clint, Nico & Ian_C!

As far as help goes, I am no expert at Coo's and what not, but what I meant was a feeble attempt at humor, meaning I need all kinds of help, upstairs in me head and otherwise, lol!

I've pretty much been collecting my whole life, as much as I could... I also eventually gave up on modern and got rid of 98% of it... It just wasn't resonating with me anymore like the Kenner always has...

I will do the intro thingy later today hopefully...

Hope the Luke photos help TheGent, and I certainly hope he gets more material from the community...

Ha, well sarcastic humor is appreciated here. Very Happy

I have done the same thing with my modern. Was a completist from 1995-2006 (loose and packaged). Finances and frustration at items not available in Canada made me quit, and everything just sat there until 2015, when another financial issue hit, and I decided to sell it. I was forced to part with some key vintage too ( Sad ), but all of my packaged modern stuff went up for sale. At one point, I had close to 1000 carded figures, and am down to 7, and less than a dozen vehicles/playsets/beasts/multipacks. For the people that say modern is worth nothing, I have done pretty much the whole thing at no less than $4 a figure (not far from original retail), and some pretty high - patience is key.

Anyway, looking forward to your intro. Smile

Hey Ian,

You are not alone my friend... I have had a lot of the same issues and feelings over the years. Sorry to hear about you having to part with key vintage, that's the worst but unfortunately that's what seems to fetch the most in tough times... I know I've had my share.

Hope you have been able to replace some of that vintage stuff....

I feel like we high jacked this Lightsaber thread... my sincere apologies to TheGent.

No worries Danny. Sometimes little tangents keep a thread alive, which brings more eyes to it, so all good. Smile

Still selling a few, unfortunately, but hoping that trend reverses in the next year or two.

I had about twenty carded modern Luke figures but last year I gave them to my mate's two kids and watched them rip them off the cards. Was bloody fun to watch!

That's awesome Christian, and hilarious!!

Nothing like giving children the joy of opening Star Wars!!

Its just too bad that Kenner isn't still producing figures for the current generation... and no way in hell am I going to open a vintage Kenner figure, I don't care how bad it looks or if went through an elephants bowel system, lol!
