Fencing Sculptor's Diary

The Ramblings of a Reluctant Civil Servant

I have ceased to collect the 3 3/4 inch Hasbro Star Wars figures.

I started collecting the line but in the last couple of years as Hasbro have started producing comic packs (based on the expanded Star Wars Universe) , shortpacked figures, and exclusive figures sold with expensicve and large Bulky figures I have become disillusioned with the line.

It's a shame as I liked the line and enjoyed collecting them but as a collector I have begun to feel as though I was being fleeced - so adieu.

While I will continue to collect Character options Doctor Who figures, dropping the Hasbro line will dramtically reduce my (frankly) obsessive action figure collecting.

Which means I can appease the collector in me by buying glorious ad-hoc figures such as this:

This figure is getting rave reviews as one of the best ever single action figures ever released anywhere by anybody !!!! and I have to say I'm really looking forward to getting it !

I already have quite a few of Sideshow's 12" Star Wars line but I've managed not to get the DTs over omitting the less known characters from my collection.

Now I should be ok unless they bring out another 500 complementary figures from each of the Indy Films....
