    What are you specializing in? Are you trying to collect all the Boba Fetts? Are you trying to get every speeder bike? Well whatever it is, post it in here.

    Be the local authority on what you specialize in.

    R2-d2

    I'm trying to collect every 3 3/4" R2-D2 variation possible. From Autographed to Asian and Bilogo to Bootlegs. If there's a difference I want it. I'm also collecting R2-D2 odds and ends specifically that are shaped like R2 (not like chip bags w/picture). Although not a major priority, These items are growing on me rapidly

    Just spotted my last post in this thread. Has a year gone by so quickly? Apparently!

    Things sure do change in a year. I'm now mostly chasing Pewter items. I've got almost a full set (including some mega rare items), but a few still elude me. Its all in the chase though, ain't it ? :)
