I've never sat down and worked out what sort of dollars I've spent on the collection over the past 10 years... until today...

And this is missing a few things here and there... BUT, it's basically...

$35,000!

Holy Cow!

If I average it out since 2002 (which is when I got heavily back into it), that's $3,500 per year OR $67 per week :(

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the collection, but man, it ads up :)

It's just Sideshow figures. Cost, I don't know a grand. Worth, prolly a quarter that.

Bib Fortuna is a worthless figure.

Didn't mean that I was the biggest fan guys. Not at all. Just wondering who has spent the most.

A friend of a friend came into some money when he was in his early 30's and, having grown up with Star Wars (but his parents weren't well off when he was a kid so they couldn't afford much) went and got ALL the original Kenner figures, mint on cards...

... cost him nearly 50K to get them all.

Just curious if anyone here has gone more than that.

Come on Dexter-Jettstar, yours has to be up there? :)

Clearly this has gone pear-shaped.

I was simply curious to see if someone turned around and said their collection cost them 100K (or something like that, that would make most of us spin-out).

It'd be interesting to see where the money has gone? A collection full of 1:1 replicas? Custom SS ships?

I've had my eye on a custom Sandcrawler but it's 3K - and now with a family, the collection is slowly winding down.

Curiosity gentlemen, not chest-puffing or ____-sizing.

I probably spent about $200-300 on all the Star Wars stuff I possess, including DVDs. I'm not including the handful of vintage toys from my childhood since I didn't pay for them. They probably cost about $20 total though, if you wanna consider them.

I think you would have gotten better responses if you did not add the "who's the biggest SW fan here?" part in your title.

You could have someone who does not have much money and thus owns very little or nothing SW but yet still lives and breaths the films, books, and games.

Perhaps it's the person who named their kids Luke and Leia.

Perhaps the guy with the million $ collection "likes" SW but loves collecting SW

And so on and so forth.


I got what you ment but I was not surprised by some of the responses. The title should have read. "who could feed a third world country if they sold off their SW collection?" ;););)

My best friend named his second son Lucas. First thing he said to him when he was born was, "Luke...I am your father."

I'm pretty sure the name was chosen just so he could do that. He didn't laugh when I told him he got the line wrong. :lol

I'm a huge Star Wars fan and I've been all over the place regarding SW collectibles. I've gone through GG busts, Sideshow 1/6 figures, Sideshow PFs, Sideshow 1:1 busts, Kenner figures and 1:1 helmets.

Some I've sold off along the way as my tastes have changed. I don't want to think what I've spent over the years, but I have enjoyed the ride.

Huge Star Wars fan here! Not only because I collect, but I been a fan of the movies, books etc for over 30 years. Now my two boys are big fans and it's great sharing the interest with them. As for my collection like most I sold almost every Hasbro item I owned and now I collect GG bust, various art, MR/EFX sabers and helmets, SS Premium formats, bust and some 1/6 scale figures I have 10 SW PF's and counting. Besides the statues The bigger pieces I own are the Vader 1:1 bust, Vader Legend Helmet and MR ROTS Vader helmet. I have spent about 15K so far and I don't see any stopping in the near future. There is so much good stuff coming out with the new legend line with EFX and some classic PF's coming, The Droids, Chewie etc . As long as I still have a job and the passion is there I should be collecting for many more years.

I don't think there's any way to realistically account for everything I've spent on Star Wars. I got most people beat, but the truth is a few years ago I realized that my collecting is so gianormous that I will NEVER be able to display all of it. So I've been thinning it out here and there.

People say it in the US as well, but it's not all that common.

As for how much my collection has cost, I really don't know (and I'm not sure I want to know...) I'm sure it's well over $20K, especially if you include stuff like display cases and things that I've subsequently sold, like the Sideshow life size C-3PO. But I enjoy it. I don't smoke, drink (much) or gamble, so I have to spend my money on something. :lol

I have all my collectables written down on a piece of paper. I have what i bought and how much it cost me (postage included) and what i have at the moment came to $10 grand. Will not tell the misses that. As i don’t have much spare cash at the moment i sometimes have to sell stuff to buy something and i will put down on the paper what i sold it for and its cool to see if i made some money or lost some.
A good example is the GG Rancor I paid $160 and sold for about $320 but it doest always work that way.
At the moment I have a full stormtrooper (I’m in the 501st) 5 premium formats (stormtrooper, fett, scout on speeder, tusken, yoda & clone), Master Replica snowspeeder, training remote, clone helmet, EFX clone helmet, EFX vader LE & tie fighter (both on order) and 5 studio scale kits I have yet to build (X-Wing, Y-Wing, ESB AT-ST, probe droid, training remote) and vader, fett, royal guard helmets that still need finishing and a few nick knacks not worth mentioning.

I know what you mean - it'll never end, but it's getting to that point now where (as you mentioned the MR Falcon & AT-AT) how do you get any better unless you build a life-size version? :)

With most of my stuff, like the (Sideshow) Jabba, I'm at the point where I think how much better will they get and can I justify spending the extra cash.

Going to sell the Snowspeeder to pay for some of the other stuff I've got on pre-order. As you can see the room is getting full and once the eFX Tie arrives my "Studio Scale" ships area will have one too many for the area and I thought the Snowspeeder would be the one I'd let go.

According to my spreadsheet in total I have 212 SW pieces ranging from common $5 vintage figures to a few prop replicas and my Sideshow Vader bust; rough value of $12K.

What kind of shelves are those, Mandible? It's hard to find ones that big and deep.

Hey icruise. They're Ikea desks called Vika Amon 200x60cm. They're cheap and look fantastic. The ones with the Falcon on are 150x75.

That's what she said :nana:

My favorite SW collection is my vintage Kenner figures:


According to my spreadsheet in total I have 212 SW pieces ranging from common $5 vintage figures to a few prop replicas and my Sideshow Vader bust; rough value of $12K.

It's definitely the most substantial part of my overall collection that's in the $35-40K range :lol

Great collection mate. Man, that brings back memories :)
I had all the 93 originals when I was a kid but sold them in my teens :(

Hey Mandible, how did you remove the Gentle Giant Princess Leia from her base? That's a great idea!

Hey Lam,

Yeah, that was fun...NOT. I got the idea from Silentsurfer and went to follow his instructions but got impatient so I took it to a woodwork shop. They had a bandsaw and rotary sander. So I roughly cut the bottom off with the bandsaw then carefully sanded it down. All up, maybe 10 minutes :)

The only down side was the front of the skirt was cut flat (as pictured below) but I got some Milliput and extended and repainted it.

Well, it turned out great! Not sure if I'm brave enough to saw through the sucker though.

Fantastic use of space and RJD2 is a great choice for music in your vid (love that album). Really enjoyed it.

:lol Thanks! I had to settle my brother down nd explain why I wanted to design the layout instead of just spreading crap out onto the floor.

Yeah, love me some RJD2! Good listenin', son!

Holy Cow! That's one damn impressive collection dude. Love the flickr shots!

How many years has this taken?

Congrats!

Thanks, Mandible. It's the toys I grew up with (most survived, many parts replaced), plus the first collecting push my bro and I did together in the mid-90s as we looked for the best quality loose toys. Once Kenner came back a few years later I was in, and have been collecting ever since.

I don't buy everything that Hasbro makes or made, but I want the best representatives of characters and vehicles. space allowing, of course. ;)

Say, I am digging your own shelves, Mr. Mandible. Great set up, not cluttered. Congrats!

Cool pics and nice collection.

I'm trying to forget how much I've spent as I enjoy gazing at my collection more without picturing them with mental price tags. Anyway, I'm a new collector (since March this year) so it's not a lot :)
