Agreed & should have added - one of the BEST parts about posting here is that you actually get to meet a few (or a lot, in some cases!) of the members to complete trades as a bunch of us are all within a couple of hours drive of each other. I've met a few people from other sites/forums as well, but not in anywhere near the same numbers.

The biggest difference I see in collecting seems to be the quality of the Hasbro Toys has dropped to levels that I really have no interest in collecting them.    Maybe things will change with the new movies - but it could be possible that the best years of modern collecting Star Wars at least for OT collectors could have been the last 10 years.

For me it's the availability being terrible that ruins my interest. I have loved almost all the OT Black Series figures I've gotten - but I've gotten so few new figures in the last year and a half, it's depressing.  :fighting0072:

I just passed the 5 year mark. And I've only been collecting figures a few months longer than that. The hobby came to me a little late in life - coincidentally not until after gaining an established income. I have you all to thank (blame?) for enabling my addiction.

On Sept 10, it will be 12 years for me.  This is post #46.

I think I was on the previous incarnation as well.  I remember attending a meetup with others in the Vancouver area quite some time ago.  Maybe at the Mongolie Grill?  Might have been back in 2002 when I still lived downtown.

Next week will be 12 years. I think I am around 1400 posts? Good times. Overall been collecting for 38 years total. First figure was Han Solo after seeing a screening in NFLD when I was 4 years old.

I've been visiting and posting on Snowtroopers.ca for the last 12 years, my first entry was on August 23, 2003. A long long time ago it seems.

To be frank, I've been mostly in and out, not a forum regular until the last couple of years I would say. I used to take care of the Collection Section at the French-Quebec website called SithClan from 2006 to 2008, but decided to leave due to a lack of time and resources to manage the site section properly (I do not have programming skills and spent most of my time formatting news and sponsors ads for the site and there was little to no help offered to me by other members of the site). After leaving SithClan, I found "a new home" at Snowtroopers and am pleased with it. It seems interactions are way more polite here than what I've seen on other message boards. Maybe, like the US used to say about us, Canadians are much more polite than the usual guys. Anyway, that level of respect definitely fits my way of viewing what a community is all about...  :)
