I'd have to say if I found an original Firefly figure, from GI Joe, still in it's packing. That's the other thing I collect besides Fett, is all the different Firefly figures (GI Joe, not the TV show). Go figure, huh, since Fett and Firefly are similar type of characters. That was always my favorite Cobra villian, I think because of the cool camouflage. Urban camo had just come out, back in the day, and it was pretty wild looking.
me too brother!(clapping giddily), no kidding those r 2 of the 3 guys i collect.
have you picked up the new wave sculpt?

i think all three of these characters are cut from the same cloth.
Yeah, I picked up the new sculpt. They look really sharp. That was one of the things I was trying to get a decent picture of when we were at the Con last year. When I moved from my old apartment, I found out that the "o-ring" in almost all my older Firefly figures I had setting out had dry rotted, because it's so freakin' dry out in Wyoming. I ended up having to find someone who sold the things separately, and replace just about all of those. That was a lot of fun. I was reading somewhere that they're coming out with another one as part of one of their GI Joe comic book 2-packs that they have out now. This one is supposed to be the Firefly costume version that's in the current GI Joe comic book series from Dark Horse, so that should be pretty cool.
As for the other "figure" I collect (yes, I have three, too--must be something in the water), it's the different Batman figs. Not the freaky weird ones from all the different lines, like super neon night vision cooling jet pack Batman or some crap like that, but just the basic "normal" Batman figs from the lines. I guess you could say it's more than three, though, I guess. I also get the basic Robins, Nightwings, and Azrael's that go with him, but that's it, I swear. It's my wife's fault, really. She collects the Batgirl, Huntress, and Black Canary figures, and since I already had a lot of the Batman figs in storage, I finally just took them all out of their boxes and set them out. Seemed like a waste just having them all in storage. I'm of that mindset now, that if I'm not going to set it out on display, then I should probably not waste the money on it if I'm just going to put it in a box somewhere in storage where I'm never going to enjoy it, you know? Now I have to get rid of all those Star Wars and Star Trek figs I've been collecting since they first started coming out again. Man, that was a pain in the butt to catalog and photograph for eBay. Didn't realize just how many there were, until they were all piled up and sorted out. What a pain. Do yourself a favor kids, don't buy stuff just to put it in storage. It's a pain to sort it all out later on when you want to get rid of it.
