Wearing Star Wars Underoos on my head to school was probably a bad idea...

Generally not, considering my physical appearance. I tend to ward off bullies.

When I was littler though I did, but one well placed punch to the throat fixed that.

Err. When I was in 5th grade and people were a bunch of immature kids who thought they knew what cool was. Last year when I was still in highschool, my best friends would always wanna play with half of the ****, even though they don't like SW. They just wanted to launch missiles and what not :rolleyes:

They did like my Mr. Zuchinni Head accessory that comes with my Family Guy figures :p

I haven't collected any star wars figures yet, I may, and no one has ever made fun of my collecting before.

Sometimes, but then they see my collection and their like "thats pretty cool"

A few years ago when I was maybe 15 I bought a Boba Fett action figure and played with it. It was fun, but that was the last action figure I ever bought. Im 17 now and sometimes when I'm in the car, I play with my little brothers action figures and make them fight each other. Sometimes I wish I could be 7 again lol.

Thats why I'm glad I have a little boy, more toys to play with. It seems like the toys are cooler now than when I was a little kid.

Nope. A lot of people think I'm nerdy, but not in a mean way. I mean, they eventually realize that it's better to have a passion in something than nothing at all. They also think that it's cool that I go out of my way to get these things, and that I have collected so many and spent so much. But of course there are a few out there that don't understand, but I just don't pay any attention to them.
As for continuing collecting...it's not as much as I did when I was a kid, but it's definitely still going strong, and I plan to keep buying as long as they produce (and far beyond).

People wouldn't Dare!! nah... my Friends are cool with it (Plus, I'm just short of 6"4') :D
Me and one of my mates decided to start collecting again after AOTC came out, I haven't looked back...

not really, i don't play with them anymore and trying to collect anymore requires two jobs but i do my best to keep up. everyone i always had over thought it was cool to have thousands of little figures all setup and stuff.
btw katarn whats goin on haven't seen you in, well, years.

I only have a few of mine left, although I plan on picking up some more. But to answer the original question yes, my wife gives me a hard time about it.

09-10-2007, 02:16 AM
I have hundreds of them and nobody bothers me.

I'm a 30-year old husband/father who is still actively adding to my vintage SW collection. My wife makes fun of me all the time about it, but I keep reminding her that my SW collection may someday pay for a semester of our daughter's college tuition.

That is, if I can bring myself to sell it off (probably not). :lol:

04-09-2008, 07:03 PM
I don't have time to collect them, I collected Bionicle for a while, but i hardly had any time to look(let alone play)with them!

When I used to work at Target I'd pick an SW figure that I figured was pretty rare, and I would get an occasional smile from one of the cashier girls, but no one's ever really made fun of me for it.

LOL, i have 161 now, got a two-pack today. i always get picked on and teased coz i make fights with them, but they're the gr8est they rule

make battles with them, like big clones v seperatists i ment

09-26-2008, 09:52 PM
yeah, by the girls but the guys no. its really awsome to have a scale at-st march into an already awsome display lol what can i say. i dont really play with them, but just put them on display so it looks like a middle of a battle.

11-09-2008, 04:32 PM
I have around 200 figures, ships and vehicles, micro machines and titaniums, an original AT-AT scale model and original figure scale Falcon and I'm running out of space in my smallish house but my friends are more interested in checking out new editions to the collection than making fun of me lol.

11-10-2008, 01:32 PM
I get made fun of for just liking Star Wars... Is it really such a crime?

11-11-2008, 02:11 AM
Last action figure I bought was in 2005, when I bought a Mace Windu with karate chop action! Lost the lightsaber and action figure itself eventually, though...

Oh, and a Die Cast Titanium IG-88 model... that's it...
