Alternate collecting?
« on: May 12, 2007, 12:06:40 PM »

If the Star Wars movies didn't exist, do you think you would still be collecting? If so, what? (Especially if you're a "Star Wars only" collector). Or, what do you think you would put the money you have into Star Wars into instead?

LoTR armies of middle earth figures,

And I think I would also collect original Lego space and Castle toys.
I would love to have to display rooms with giant diaramas.

when SW wasn't readily available at retail way back in 03, I collected a pile and a half of McFarlane Hockey figures and a few other sport figures as well.  There was still plenty of things to spend money on.  Maybe hockey cards as well.

I stopped collecting SW for several years before TPM was announced and took up collecting a beer gut and empty beer bottles!  :mad0218:  SW collecting saved me!  :)`

well I collect star wars, some hockey figures, hockey cards, comics, Marvel and dc figures, other card sets and lego.  So although I don't see star wars slowing down any time soon there is a ton to spend my money on. Oh I forgot plus mini games like star wars and axis and allies.

I'd probably be collecting a lot more expensive Star Trek (classic) and Alien/Aliens/Alien3 items...

Yeah, I got caught up in the LOTR thing like others here. I also have a love of McFarlane. I'd collect more if I had the room!!!

I thought it [Star Wars] was too wacky for the general public.
