Seeing though the majority of my collection are relatively recent purchases over the last 2 years or so not many have sentimental value. Although far less valuable I'd have to grab the bag of 10 or so semi battered figures from my childhood. I can always start collecting again from scratch.

Great choice, i only have a loose chewie from my childhood, id throw that in with the boots too, might have to grab the yak and snags too, and hect the pop up R2's are getting harder to find complete, id throw him in too lol, but if the saber dropped out on the way out, no fireman would be able to stop me from going back in and looking for that bad boy lol.

Damn tricky question this, my collection is stored in a one way dead end with no chance of escape should I get trapped. 

I can see the local headlines now "man burns to death trying to save ugly fat blue figure!"

In which case I'd be happy to grab anything you can always replace them, and just think of the insurance money!!

I'd be char-broiled while I debated which one to take. lol! 

I'm guessing my MOC Blue Stars, it's probably not the hardest of my figures to replace but it's close

Good question, AF! Very Happy


Assuming the missus and cat are safe, I would try to get a small plastic icecream box from the attic.

Inside is my modest collection of childhood figures still stored inside their opened bubbles. I would also try to sneak in my Ledy '78 R2 when possible.

Shocked  What a terrible thought!

Once I made sure my family & animals were safe, if I could only save one item, it would be my Ledy Jawa, no... wait... my VC Jawa, or... oh I don't know! In reality I'd probably get burnt to a crisp trying to save the lot. Smile

I would try to grab as much as possible, starting with the box of my ledy figures. Most of my stuff is boxed up since I don't have a proper display so hopefully I could save most of it. The large vehicles and what not are up in the attic so insurance would have to cover those losses. I believe I would try to throw the newer potf2 figures into the flames and tell the insurance that they are worth a mint. lol!

I would grab my signed helmets and fill them with as much as I could and have the missus do the same Smile my carded death star droid and imperial gunner plus my George Lucas signed photo would be top priority.

An easy one for me.... I would grab my Palitoy Death star and my sandcrawler, then fill the sandcrawler with all my Vaders as i have invested quite a bit of time and money into my focus recently. The rest can burn as it can all be easily replaced.
