 (Edited)

Yep. That’s right. I now have all 96 Kenner action figures! Yeah! Thanks to my father who sent me a nice BIG check, I was able to swoop on all of the final ones at once. I also grabbed my fourth 24 figures carrying case so that I could store the last 24 that I didn’t have a case for. This is quite an impressive bunch of figures. I’m so gald that all of them are complete. I don’t have to hunt down weapons or anything else for them. I was also really impressed with their condition. They all look brand new except Barada. He’s got a few spots on his hands that are missing paint, but it’s nothing that I can’t live with. Hell, some of my first figures from the original 12 have spots where there is paint missing. That just makes them all the more charming to me. They’ve been with me since 1978. Well, after almost 20 years it’s nice to finally have the whole collection.

My Barada is actually in pretty good shape.

Congrats on the collection. I'm drooling. .....

Luke, well I'm not sure what I'll do with them. Since I don't have kids and I'm certainly not planning any, I don't know what will become of them.

Once I pass on to the great beyond, those things should be worth quite a bit. Especially since I have all of the boxes for the toys and they are all complete. The figures being mint and complete should be worth something. Maybe I'll just pass them onto someone to sell after I'm gone.

And I am taking very good care of them. These figures and toys have been with me since I got most of them in 78 and 79. I dug out the figures and it's amazing to me that they are in as good of shape as they are. Only the original Luke, Leia and C-3PO show any kind of wear to them. All of the others look like they just came out of the package.

I'm just glad that I finally have all 96 figures. Thanks to eBay.

Congrats, R2. Now if I could complete the POTF lines, I have hundreds but not all. I can probably forget about the prequel lines. I haven't bought a SW action figure in a while.

Thanks for all of the congrats guys.

Klingon, there are a few of the new figures that I wouldn't mind having just as a supplement to the original Kenner ones. Mainly, Uncle Owen, Aunt Beru, Tarkin, Leia Slave Girl, and Leia Ewok Celebration just to name a few. However, I have found 40+ different new figures that would 'suplement' my original ones. That's just too many for me to even consider.
