...what would your collection be like? What items would you go after, would you still go after those bargains on ebay just for the thrill of the hunt or turn your attention to huge items with even bigger price tags just to have a mega collection!

Would you even collect still??

Very Happy

I'd buy that guys 3 DT Vader,Luke & Ben display that's on Lafos' website & send it back to AFA so they could put the figures back on the cards & get rid of the wanky U grades & get them to display it with just the MOC's with the Irwin provenance letter instead! Very Happy

Here you go coach. http://www.9holygrails.blogspot.com/

If I won, I'd still go for the deals because I'd be a tight wad. lol! The first thing I'd do is pay off all mine, my parents, and sisters bills, then travel for a year around the world on a vintage buying spree to make the hunt for items more memorial.

Oh for sure I wouldn't spend a penny on Star Wars until I had the house the cars and the peace of mind BUT then you would eventually turn your attentions to a full on SW room! LOL

Gotta have a room like Jeffs Laughing I would also invite you all over to play Star Wars Arcade games whilst you drool over my collection, then when you left feeling a little down I would give you all a carded VCJ to keep tongue

I'd personally go for a Rocket Fett... loose of course, so I could see just how dangerous the rocket really was. Very Happy I would also finally own a gold Darth Vader case. Wink

I'd also really trick out my display room, turn it into a theater as well. Like others have said though, I would make sure I'm living comfortably first.

I think the 'round the world vintage buying spree sounds like a ton of fun too! Especially if you could go from collectors to collectors house to see their collections.

I'd buy a house and have Jeff design one of the levels for a collection like his. Only instead of everything incased in AFA cases, they would be in Oscars cases. Very Happy

In reality I don't think my collection would be much different. The really big ticket items I would want, would be an Executive coin set and some preproduction Luke Jedi stuff. Other than that, I would say I would be collecting the same I am now, but I'll never know until it happens.

/me goes to buy a lottery ticket.

That would be the main thing, going visiting and having a blast finding things with friends. You just cant beat finding vintage with buds.

Shawn, pick me up two while your out. Laughing

I reckon i'd start a moc collection. I've resisted thus far, but i know i'd be able to do it justice with that sorta cash.
In my newly bought mansion, i would just want a state of the art SW collecting room (not a whole floor).....but what a room it'd be!
Ho hum, you never know.

What lol!!!!!

Seriously if i won big on the lotto (i.e the 56million GBP the couple in the UK won on the Euro the other week been an example)

I would earmark a couple of million for vintage SW!

I would then probably build a TIG museum designing the building myself as a 2 - 3 year project. Fill it with loads of rare vintage SW info etc! I would probably build a seperate wing for other popular toy lines as well.

I would also probably travel round the world trying to catch up with as many forums members as possible Smile
