Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share my starwars experience with fanboys like me haha
The first time I saw it I was 10 years old I guess, the episode 4 was unbelievable!
Noticing this, my brother looked for his Darth Vader action figure and spaceship, luke and another action figure and gave it to me at that moment. He had sold the X-Wing, emporor and others on yardsales a year earlier Sad
Few years later I discovered on yardsales that action figures can be found, WAHOUUU they look so nice I thought, and bought three of them with my monthly saved money ^^


For the next 4 years I was hunting on yardsales like a dog. But I have to admit that older boys (10 years more at least) were better hunters than I was... and had much more fundings and knowledge! I didn't know about barada, yakface, imperial dignitary and others ...

My collection was standing proudly in my teenager room until we moved to a house that needed lots of paintjob to deserve my collection to be out of boxes again...

A long time passed, long long years ago Smile ...
Now that I live in another city, I decided to finish that room (in my parent's house, not the appartement I was living in during my childhood) so as to have a nice place to rest in when I come for holidays.

Unboxing my loose action figures made me mad again when looking at them, in the past few months I just felt the need to make the collection grow a lot more. I started to buy figures again and discovered the reality about variations and MOC, LL, PALITOY.... that is amazing!

So here it is, my humble teenager collection, 2.0...

My basics cardbacks,

Its a nice collection. Your paploo has on a chirpa hood in case you wanted to know. Also the luke poncho didn't come with a saber.

yes I know I'm a noob concerning which weapon is fitting this or that character Smile


and I'm sure I have copies! the quality is so poor sometimes...
What about COOs and variants, is there a clear-to-read database that exists?

I'm sure I let go a variant of Han Bespin few months ago...

Oh I forgot, my first custom that was born yesterday, K-3PO, simple, as the former action figures...

And a Posca drawing I've done on a nice Sennheiser headset

edit: I knew for paploo, it should be a cream one isn't it? thanks pal!
I didn't know for Luke, this saber is probably a copy, I must admit I bought it without knowing it wasn't
supposed to go with him Smile
