Really only buying the SW vehicles that I really like. Found the Clone Wars Assault Shuttle at H.E.B. on clearance for $25. Would like to find another one to maybe see about a Python Patrol custom.

SW is an epic saga and a great storyline. That said, I haven't had the figures since I was about 4 or 5 (Originals) however, I've never had the desire to get more. I remember grabbing a few darth maul figures when episode 1 came out, but G.I. Joes have always been the shizzle for me.

I never understood this concept....
Why would you start buying things you dont need just to buy something?
Its like a desire to throw your money away...
Joe is a 100 times more awesome than Star Wars..

I'm so glad I got away from SW after the Ep I figures first hit. It just seems like wave upon wave of the exact same stuff only in different packaging or variations on the same molds. There has to be 50 different paint jobs for the Ep III trooper and probably twice that for R2-D2 and his color variations. And then you have Anakin, Anakin with robes, Anakin now with more articulation!, shirtless Anakin (for the ladies), Anakin on the rag, BBQ'd Anakin, etc, etc. I know we get similar with Stormshadow and the rest, but it just seems amplified with SW. Joe collecting can become hectic sometimes, but SW is freaking rediculous.
Anyway, to answer the original question, no, I stuck with Joe

Option "C" for me: whatever else looks interesting. Fortunately, it seems like whenever one line slows down, another one puts out a bunch of stuff that looks good so I transition over. Star Wars has gotten too expensive and thin product-wise so I haven't bought much there (not to mention I'm irritated about their articulation cutbacks also), but Transformers and its associated third-parties have had some good stuff and that's where most of my moolah has gone lately.

I agree, though, that some people buy just to buy, and that's not good. However, some have to choose between two lines they really like, and when one line has a break in the action, it frees the wallet up a little to catch up on the other line.
Myself, I'm very selective with Joe and SW collecting, so it's usually not a problem for me, but I've noticed that when there is less Joe stuff out there, I do take the opportunity to snag a few SW figs I've been eyeing.

I actually went from SW to GI Joe. I only know the movie characters, all this extended universe and other series is way over my head. Once I got all the main characters, I didn't know what else to do.

The thing that really killed my enthusiasm for SW was when I realized I literally had a box full of nothing but Luke in his Tatooine outfit. And most of the figures were the same mold with just slight differences.
