i sold ALL my sw stuff save for my 3 xbox games n guides and 3 customs from KOTOR2. I gave up on star wars to focus on joe and with joe going away until GOD KNOWS WHEN..it leaves me open..but i dont see myself going back to sw...too expensive for their shit and the quality just aint there any more. plus the animated stuff is too brittle and lanky and doesnt look good to me.

My son is really the driving force on getting SW stuff. I dont really have any for my collection. I'm more tempted by the Marvel figures because of thier good articulation. I dislike the SW figures because of the crappy articulation. However there was a Darth Maul and General Grievous in my son's Easter Basket. Thought a guy who looks like the devil in an Easter Basket was kinda ironic...

i like Star Wars (OT mainly), and wouldn't mind army building some of the cooler bad guys (Snow Troopers, Biker Scouts, etc.), but i know i would get hooked and end up spending waaaay too much money and impinging on my Joe space.
oh, and to answer the question: No.

Sadly I have been picking up SW figs again, I guess my retirement was short lived. I have also merged back into the vintage Joe ring. This time I plan to limit myself to 88 and up figs and selected vehicles. I had everything once before and I do not plan to go that rout again.

if i go to SW.....it's no diff from Joe with bunch of re-issues.
right now, i spend my time with other lines, like Marvel Universe, Terminator 4, etc. it allows me to expand.

Since Lucas has paid an awful lot for his "lack of vision" in both the 80s and the 90s, he has opened the flood gates and is releasing everything he can.
Between TFs Batman and G.I. Joes, i can't keep up with SW.
also, i just don't have the space.
even if i did, i may just limit myself to the Movie vehicles.
Tie & Darth's Tie
Imp. Shuttle...and so on.
I am doing the same tihing with the Joe stuff i got.
bought the Rattler and Conquest cheap at retail while i could, waiting on other 25th vehicles.
i do have one regret.
in the 90s, i bought a couple of Spawn figures as desk decorations and went overboard collecting them.
should have bought one or two i liked, and spent the rest of the money on SW....
Rest in Peace, Dad.

Nope, was never really a toy fan of SW. I only bought and completed the Macquarrie mini-set from the 20th Anniversary collection. With the Joe slowdown, I've been getting some Marvel Universe figs ...

I'm a star wars nut, and go crazy picking up novels and comics, but I',m not a huge toy fan. They're nice, but I prefer Joes and Transformers. That said, I do pick up some of them, but my habits haven't changed in the last few weeks.

The Clone Wars cartoon is so cool IMO that I was simply compelled to start buying CW figures. I bought Rex, Cody, a 212 and a Space Trooper and a few others a couple of months ago planning to open them all up later. But when I was playing with my nephews Clone Wars figures I found the leg articulation to be simply horrible; they could only swivel... if that.
After that I decided to just keep my CW figs MOC; then when I saw the new Joe and Cobra 7 packs I returned my CW figs to Target so I could have enough money to get the new Joe stuff. LOL. I did keep my Ahsoka and Padme CW figures though and will buy any future Ahsoka and Padme figures that come out. And if I ever see a Captain Rex in the new Star Wars packaging I might pick him up again since his character only appears in this new Clone Wars franchise.
