Ooo Shawn, getting soooo close now m8!! Can't wait to see the finished article. P'raps you could send it to me for a closer look when it's done?

Back on topic, i don't actually hide the fact i collect SW, but i don't actively put it out there either...

"Hi, my names Tank, & i collect old Star Wars toys, especially ones with slightly different colourings". Hmm can see that going down well at barbecues.

LOL Tank! Well said. That's pretty much how I feel too. "Don't ask,Don't tell"

Does anyone ever hide the fact they collect sw from people? - Page 2 Icon_biggrin Well,like John, i also tell people all the time. I also couldn't care less if someone doesnt like it or thinks i am a geek or a freak because i collect these. Some people understand a bit more off the collection when you tell a litlle bit more off why you collect them. I don't know why but everybody asks the same questions, like what does they cost, wich is the most expensive and when you talk about the cash they declare you nutz...

But the reason i tell people is the fact it always could be a chance i get (although i am still waiting) the reply: wow really, i had many figures myself as kid and i think they are at my parents attic, if i find them you can have them...


Anyway i once scored a bunch off he man and gi joe's this way...

I never hide it either. Seems that the women think it is very dorky and the guys think it is very cool and start talking about the SW they has when they were kids.
Now, if I could get away with wearing some kind of SW insignia on my work uniform, I am sure I could connect with a lot more people.

I tend to keep it fairly low key.. unless the subject comes up. I do however openly display my collection in my home.
