This kind of stuff is what really makes me angry! Some guy walks into a store and buys every one of the boba fett figures that is released! He is not buying them to play with he is not buying them for a collection, he is buying them to make money off them! I collect all star wars toys but boba mainly. I can afford to buy everyone that the store has but I am happy with one. People forget that these are kids toys and I sleep better at night knowing that if some kid walks into the store and has the chance to get a boba fett toy that he is gonna grow up loving the same thing as us. This is not a great collection, this guy would not love every figure that he has! This is a some one that is trying to make money off something that should be a passion not something where you are gonna rip other collectors off with cause they want one of the figures that you have a dozen of!

he aint doing it to make money he collects all SW figs like that... every variation..

I do it wih fett when i find it but being in the UK variants are hard to come by as so little product hits our small isle and when it does just one shipment of most things come in an no restocks like in the USA.

I have a friend  who is a variant collector an keeps a close tabs on POTF2 etc to make sure he has it all.

we went to SWC3 together and he kept finding me fett stuff I didnt have from dealers there.  but then I found a POTF2 dark flashback Leia with 00 padme pic on the back he spent over $2000 on it and it wasnt even mint !!

he and I will never sell our collections if we can help it we just love collecting. !

and ebay prolly as its an old fig..

or look for http://www.rebelscum.com/sw03ultimatebounty.asp

as it has the 300th fett in an a few other nice figs !

I remember buying 48 of the 300th fett early from toy palace in Germany when I used to get wholesale from him so I could take them to a convention that Jeremy was at so I could sell em an he could sign em !

I had 4 tables and sold all the fett stuff I had in stock at the time.

an Jeremy was way happy as he did a load more extra autos. !

Yeah, I hear that.  They still only have 3 variations of the Fett Evolutions packs?  I'm kind of hoping they'll come out with one that has the chest emblem on it.

they are doing one with the emblem it was in a Hasbro Q+A a few weeks back  but a few months till it comes..

Definitely a completist.  I noticed he had the same Fett figure but the only difference were the miniature figs on the back.  I only wanted to get the Fett figure with the Fett miniature with it.  I wouldn't have room for that many, I think.

i would have that many if i lived in the usa nut in the UK an evos set is $40-45 so multiples aint cheap  I have 2 currently  I think I have 9 or 10 potf2 fett variations too but its not affordable to get em all

no im not he is a variant collector on POTF2.. I was highlighting his collection with this thread

Drakus... link should explain it all.. its GGs foray into the urban vinyl stying in the Ratfink way kinda.. I like em and the Boba should ROCK... and im sur it will get a repaint like jango or animated colours or ESB/ROTJ to make the sculpt pay for itself.  the speeder  bike has already had a repaint proto shown @ NYTF earlier this year.

yeah no worries matey.. just quote em as mine.

early days but jus spotted this
