Now I have finished my loose set a while ago (apart from VC Jawa) - I am quite tempted to get the Droids and Ewoks figures but they have never really interested me especially as I cant remember them from when I was a kid...what to do, what to do...

I thought the same thing, & as much as I love Ewoks I can't bring myself to get that line. They certainly have zero childhood memories for me too. You could probably buy 3 or 4 VC jawas for the same as the 2 lines (if not more) The droids C3PO & R2 are cool, but the rest are shite IMO Laughing

I think its the lack of childhood interest thats stopping me to be honest....but there are figures I have now from the original line that I never had a kid but at least I saw those!

I am also a little bit of a completist...

Nope, don't regret it Chris, & i guess i felt a bit more pleasure getting some of the droids figures in than some of the original ewok figures.
It also didn't help my excitement that i got all the Ewoks figures in one lot.

Chris, I know you've done all the vehicles have you considered the micro collection? At least they are easy to display (ie. don't take up too much room)

I havent quite finished the vehicles to be honest, still need a shuttle and skiff amongst others, perhaps the minirigs would be better than the droids/ewoks figures as at least I remember those.

Need things that wont take up any room as everything is going into storage up the loft.

Im the same as many in the fact i dont remember the droid or ewok figures from my childhood so i have zero interest in them now.

Although they do have there place in Kenner history i personally dont like them the figures look very childish (i know i know there taken from cartoons) and even the card art doesnt interest me.

Like AJ said you could easliy land a genuine VC Jawa and some for the price you would pay to complete a loose set of the droids and ewoks.

Cheers Jay
