While I now as an adult am a huge Star Wars fan, growing up, that wasn’t always the case. I didn’t have the Star Wars toys as they were a little bit before my time and besides I had G.I Joe’s, Transformers and He-Man toys to keep me occupied. Now though, I think it might be nice to collect some of those old and vintage Star Wars toys, not for nostalgic sake but because collecting these figures as part of my Star Wars obsession would be a fun hobby that would drive my family insane.
Looking into collecting the vintage toys I discovered few things that I was unaware of, such as: to be considered vintage Star Wars they have to be 1986 or earlier, that the exact number of vintage toys varies depending on what guide you follow and that some of these things can get really, really expensive.
One of my new favorite YouTube channels is Toy Galaxy (and I have spent far too many hours watching their videos when I should be working) takes a look at some things you need to know about collecting vintage Star Wars toys and the information is invaluable for a new collector or for someone interested in collecting Star Wars.
