Ok this has been probably been done to death here. I know i have seen top 10, top 5 etc etc.... but what would be the single most valuable figure you are proud of at the moment in your collection.

For me so far and after much thought it would be my Taiwan R2, it has a super nice sticker and in tip top condition and it seems to be super rare to get in the condition i got it in. Most of what i have seen on auction are in poor shape, sadly. Many good hong kong ones though but good looking Taiwan are a pain to find.

what would be your favorite figure?

Yes, A DT luke would be top on my list if i had one too. Maybe someday i'lll find one. Smile i still have quite some way to go to finish a loose set ( regular kenner version ) tough. ( id probably close to be 3/4 done if i had not bought up my other star wars related items ) Like i said in previous post i am halway thru loose figures from original trilogy and POTF. The POTF line is gonna be the killer on my wallet but i guess if you shop and watch you can get away with decent figures for a resonable amount of money.

Great figures guys! I like them all, especially because of the stories that come with them. Most valuable loose figure for me is not for what he's worth, money wise, but more so for the effort that went into getting him. My first Meccano Fett was very hard to find but the second one was harder because of the hundreds of emails I sent in French to find him. Translating English to French was not fun but I learned a lot : )

well i am really a french canadian so if you ever need something translated in french just give me a jingle here. Hopefully i ll be around to pick up your translation and help you out. New-Brunswick is the only bilingual province in canada and that is where i am at and since i work for that every government i have to do tons of emails every day in english and french.

so if you are not asking for a novel length translation and i am around like i said. i ll be glad to help the meccano fans.

Que la force soit avec toi! A jamais!

I didn't know this variant was that tough to find? What's the story behind this Luke and the loose neck?

It's not that tough to find as they do pop up on eBay quite often. I had a AFA 85 one & sold it when I should have just busted it out of the case. It took me awhile to find a replacement that had no paint wear or yellowing.

Even though there are 2 in the picture. Pick one of them and I'm pretty proud to own it.

Joe, I figured it would be the carded Black Snowtrooper. The Headsman are sweet on their own.

Well the thread is about loose figures. I suppose I could pop a pic of the loose Red Polish Snowtrooper up, but still not as fun as a pair of Headman figs...lol

I think my most expensive and the figure I am most proud to own is my Sise Fromm figure bounce

Love the Headman Joe, both of them Smile. That is without doubt the most awesome and iconic of all bootlegs!

Doesn't matter how many times its been done before - its still a great thread. I love seeing other peoples favourite figures - it gives me inspiration on what to buy next Smile

When you have to choose just one figure it really makes you think about it. I haven't made many purchases this year but this one is still my favourite by far.
