For me it was getting the US version of the Death Star. Cost me probably more than i should have paid for but in the end it was worth it.

My next milestone will be to finish my loose collection. I am a 3/4 point at this time. Got to get a few upgraded figures and that's it. Then i have to fully be in the POTF figures which will just ruin my wallet.


:I am stupid:

But i am way better off than i was. If i had only concentrated on the figures only i would have been done a while ago...

My biggest milstone sofar, that must have been completing my loose Ledy run with the removable rocket Boba Fett.


That was only last week, see the vid in the latest purchases thread.


Kudos to Ozio for helping me reach that milesone! Very Happy

My biggest milestone is getting back in for the third time properly.

As a child (first time); in my late teens/early 20s (second time - but no idea about variants, COOs, condition, grading, value, etc); and now, starting Dec 2012 is the third time.

This time around going into it as a true hobby, not a play-thing is going to be great.
Using my time in shared between research, collecting, trading, selling, upgrading, focusing and more. It will be a much more worthwhile experience and I am glad to have found a group here to help as well as a better understanding of what is what in a short time again.

Aside from that, time will tell. I am one piece short of my true goal of the first "12" and that is a loose, non-graded VC Jawa. So, all in all, the third time seems to be the charm and I am shocked I got here as quickly as I have... but it still isn't perfect! Laughing

There is sooooo much more to come I hope! Smile

an entire early bird kit would be the top holy grail milestone for me.

The envelope and the figures i mean. If you sit down and think hard it is achievable with patience....

I think my survival as a focus collector has been my biggest milestone. Twelve years and counting as a Jawa collector with a number of ups and downs.

I'd have to say finishing my loose collection was huge! My final figure was the POTF R2, he will forever remain special to me.

Another big one was beginning my Canadian carded collection with a mint 77back Vader.

Finally getting a loose General Madine and Klaatu. Took me 10yrs to finally find them lol!


I honestly don't know. It seems like there have been a few at different points in my collecting evolution. Picking one is pretty hard.

Maybe the Harbert ESB Yoda. I remember thinking I was now in the "big time" with it

Getting a full set of loose
Getting all of the Last 17
Getting my first MOC
First AFA Graded MOC
Putting together a full ESB run
Putting together a full run of Droids & Ewoks (and then selling the Boba)
First VC Jawa

I've been fortunate enough to have had many milestones in my time as a collector.

Finishing a full set of US carded all on premier cardbacks,
finishing a set of carded POTF,
a set of LL 12" dolls boxed,
a set of Popy figures all boxed.
Finishing my carded Uzay set
acquiring many grail level items both licensed items: carded vlix,carded Tri Madine (2times), J-slot Rocket Fett, unproduced plush Crumbs
and bootlegs :carded Polish Hoth Trooper, Uzay molds,Hungarian store display set, bagged deluxe Yoda and AtAt Driver,among many more

Still the biggest milestone for me was the thing that was most difficult for me to finish, I honestly didn't believe that I'd ever complete this carded set.... Almost 17 years to complete a carded set of a mere 20 figures. The Polish 1st gen set:
This pic shows them also flanked by some Polish 2nd and 3rd gen carded pieces and the infamous Polish Hoth Stormtrooper.

As corny as it sounds. For me it's all the good pals I've made over the years. Even if they are a bunch of enabling bastards talking me into buying a bunch of little plastic people I don't need. Wink

I would say my milestone moment is along the same lines Very Happy Joining here and getting to know some fellow collectors was a big step for me and one I am really glad I made . I had never been one to get involved with internet activities up till I joined here - deffinitely met some good folks . (Except for that Kisstour guy - he's just way too sappy and sentimental rofl )
