Hey everyone, was doing some research and stumbled upon your forum.  Lots of good resources and it seems well organized.  I go to rebelscum sometimes but find it overwhelming at times.  I have a bit of a Star Wars collection but it's mainly moderns and just within the past year or so I started collecting vintage pieces and would like to continue on with vintage but since the original issues were a bit before my time (never played with them as a kid) I find myself not knowing what to look for and just end up buying stuff my buddy brings me without really knowing much about it.  I also started buying foreign releases/bootlegs from the modern lines just because I think they're neat, with no real direction with the set or anything like that.  I usually hang out at the kennersuperpowers forums (my other big collection) but I'm hoping to expand my knowledge base on SW lines here and meet new people!

My name is Rasoul from Oklahoma (Tulsa area) - any other Okies on board?  Smile

Rasoul

Welcome to TIG. I think you'll find the forum more relaxed than RS so I hope you enjoy your time here. I'm a foreign release vintage collector myself and I think it's great to see someone doing it on the modern line!

I know we have at least one other Okie, I'm sure he'll pop in to say hi.

Glad to have you here, enjoy the site!

Welcome Smile

I guess it must be more complicated to start collecting such a large line when you don't know much about them. I've started over my collection 1 time before, I had to sell a lot of my stuff in 2005~ after that I had to start over and only have a few of my child hood stuff left.

There are loads of stuff to know, but if your just starting I would recommend starting with the characters you like the most. And later on get into the more advanced stuff when you have read up a bit on the figures. If you haven't allready you should really check out the repro guide that is hosted on http://www.imperialgunnery.com/ to avoid getting ripped off at the waste amount of repro weapons that's out there. It's a pretty large problem especially for new collectors and it's easy to loose a lot of money that way.

Welcome to TIG Rasoul cheers

I'm from Enid but I really like the Tulsa area Very Happy Cain's is my absolute favorite place to go to concerts - even though its a 2 hour drive I usually hit at least 3 or 4 shows a year there .

There is at least 1 other guy from Tishomingo , OK that's a member here at TIG too What a Face

You picked the right Star Wars site - the best info can be found here and the members are all top notch guys Cool

I'd like to add that I'm impressed that I wasn't called out or flamed for 1) posting in the wrong area since this would have fit better in Off-Topic and 2) not making a post in the introductory post that is stickied.
I guess I'm just not that observant at times. :I am stupid:

Haha, ok well I'll go make a post there too so I can enter the info everyone else posts that I seemed to have missed! Smile
