Name: Aaron
Age: 41
Single/Married: Single
Residence: New Zealand
Occupation: Self Employed
Kids: 2
Pets: 1cat
Reason(s) you love Star Wars: I loved watching the original trilogy when I was younger because you could forget about life for a bit and just enjoy the adventure.
How did you get here?: I was looking up information regarding a vintage Luke Bespin figure with no COO.
Collecting Focus: It used to be primarily vintage figures but now it seems to be anything that catches my eye lol
Character Focus: I've always liked the 'minor' background characters....I've always looked at them on screen and thought 'what's your story champ'
Collecting interest: It honestly varies so much, I love the bootleg figures that pop up and have to buy them when I see them
Looking For: Good discussions relating to SWs minus the negative bagging that seems to find its way in to so many SWs sites now days.....hey I'm a Jar Jar fan and I'm not afraid to admit it hahaha

Hello everybody,
thought I should introduce myself after the whole raffle "incidence".

My name is Titus, I am a 47 year old toy collector from Berlin, Germany.
Main focus is and probably will stay Star Wars, but there is also lots of other stuff in my collection, be it 70ties and 80ties toys from japanese animee or planet of the apes by Mego ...

I am a silent reader here for years, and will probably not be able to contribute too much, since you guys know so much more then I do about variants of figures and boxes, its amazing and let me say that this site is a very important source for MANY collectors I know, so keep up the good work, there are a lot of people out there who really appreciate it!!!

As for me I am a SW fan from 1978 on - when me and my brother were taken to the theater by my aunt. Eventually lost interest when I grew up, but came back to the toys around 95 - 98, buying just loose stuff on the fleemarkets to get me a set of figures. I didnt start collecting boxes and MoCs until maybe 2005 when I discovered about 10 Kenner Boxes in a second hand store that was about to close, and managed to get a very good price for the lot, thats how the MiB / MoC started.

a little while ago i made this pic, its in my studio (i am a freelance illustrator), where I had this huge shelve set up by a friend whos carpenter. I am semi happy to have my toys at work, but I had to give up my room in the appartement when our second child was born. sometimes quite a distraction at work, but thats the price you pay as a pationate collector, I guess. Very Happy

Hi Titus, I think many of us have had to trade our 'toy room' to house kids!!! Great to see your collection still found a display.

This is my second time of joining. The first time I didn't actually post anything  Embarassed
I've decided to start a fresh with my actual name this time.

Name: James (Jimi to my mates) Woolley
Age: 37
Single/Married: Married
Residence: Derby, UK
Occupation: Run a wedding hire business with a vintage VW Campervan and house husband.
Kids: 2 Star Wars mad boys, aged 4 & 6
Pets: 2 miniature Dachshunds
Reason(s) you love Star Wars: Always have, always will
How did you get here?: I'm on my second stint off collecting. Collected for a couple of years about 9/10 years ago. Only really focused on loose figures and didn't know a great deal. I started back up about 3 years ago and fell for it hook line and sinker this time. Found the SWFUK forum and then Facebook groups and soon realised TIG was the place for info. Been a long time reader but never contributed. I can honestly say that the majority of my knowledge has come from here. I know quite a few of you guys from Facebook and the forum, especially Stef, AJ and JP.
Collecting Focus: loose figures mainly
Character Focus: Pop Up R2D2
Collecting interest: Getting interested in variants and learning about mould families etc. Really passionate about learning as much as I can at the minute, buying has taken a bit of a back seat.
Looking For: Pop Up R2 related items I don't have at a reasonable price... which is the current problem Sad

Here is where I'm at with my Pop Up focus

I've been saying I was going to get involved for ages. Our hobby relies on forums to hold the quality information in a searchable manner. We'd be lost without forums!!

I have to figure out these notifications as I missed the post from Titus. Bit belayed, but welcome to him.

James (jimi), great to have you aboard. Cool focus you have going. Are you wanting to get into preproduction stuff? A blank name tag r2 revenge proof just sold not long ago. Not sure I have seen any 3D prototype items for the pop-up saber or sensorscope r2.

Hi Everyone

I just signed up to the forum. So a quick message to say "hello fellow Star Wars fans" and say a little about me..

I grew up with Star Wars and at 42 have decided to complete my vintage figure collection following the.. (my mum gave most of my figures she found in the loft away years ago) thing happened to me!

(I now only need 18 figures (mostly the last 17!) and Princess Leia with her original white cape.

Fav Starwars item I own : My Master Replicas Storm Trooper helmet

Biggest Star Wars Regret : Gave away my Original mint condition EV-9D9 in 2003 to a kid who wanted it! Only now realise how much he was worth! Now I need to get another one!

One thing about me : I have lots and only Starwars tattoos on my body Smile
