Yes, I have to admit that I did make the switch to Star Wars, back in 1977 when GI Joe was no longer being produced. It was a dark time in my life. 5 long miserable years of coameing thru yard sales and flea markets trying to get some relief.
But I kicked the habit in 1982 with the introduction of ARAH and have been clean and sober ever since.

I was huge on SW in 1995 and through the release of Episode 1... Then somewhere down the line took a break. When I came back to it they released all these amazing articulated new versions of SW characters. It really pissed off. Why couldn't they have been that way when I was so into it!! I spent years and thousands of dollars on my highly cherished POTF versions of SW figures. When i saw the new articulated and detailed versions my passion for my collection faded. I went from in love to upset and mad.
Because of this I will never collect Star Wars again!!!! 'spits'

I never could get into star wars toys, never really liked the movies that much to begin with and the toys have terrible articulation. They are just not for me. GI JOE is a much superior toy. If star wars had the same articulation as joes, i might have some storm troops. The only other toy line i dabble in is transformers.

Actually in 2008 I switched to Star Wars to Joe. In 2012 I switched from Joe to MOTUC.

We were Joe hunting one day, and he saw some ROC stuff at TJ maxx. He bought them all, for what? no idea....
in case he could use them for customs one day..
I think he may be a hoarder..
I love him to death, but that stuff could have gone to a kid or something, or someone who really wanted it for their collection.

Gotta be honest, clone wars has been a huge part of my collection, although i still stick to the gi joe theme, star wars figures has really played a big part in my joe verse!!!

Yes...and no. Back in 1997, I started collecting Joes, and, in 99, I started collecting SW. Since then, I have gone through periods where I have bought GI Joes, SW Figs, Or both on a regular basis. This year, due to the fact the grocery store I work at has gotten bought out by another grocery chain and I'll be outta a job in 2 months (March), I have slowed the GI Joe collecting and halted the SW collecting. At least untill I find another job.

Actually I started out Star Wars in the 70's / 80's went over to Joes till 1991/1992. Went into comics. Got back into Star Wars in 1995 and still am but seriously reduced in 2008. Joes in 2000's. Big Time Joes in 2007 25th and still am but again, serious reduced for ROC and Cherry Pick Retaliation but most after wave 2 are pretty cool ?

I actually did buy a lot more Star Wars stuff this year, but only when it was on sale, on clearance, or used stuff cheap. Oh Yeah, only Original Trilogy stuff, other than a Darth Maul and a Jango Fett. Most of my non-Joe action figure dough went to Marvel figures.
