Hello everyone! They call me Retro. Been around since '75, started collecting SW/VSW back in 1999 after the release of EP1. As much as I can remember being back in the 80's as a little kid buying Joe's & SW at Kaybee my strongest memories are from rekindling that nostalgia feeling after the release of EP1 and going to Kmart and picking up all the toys! Small break in collecting SW as I dabbled in Comics up until around 2015. Anyways, my main love and focus went back to SW and after a few years in the collecting I discovered pre-pro and I love it so much. The history and very few pieces that are few and far between make the hunt that much greater than collecting regular production.
So while my main focus is VSW I have one love for the modern 2004 animated Tartakovsky Clone Wars line. I mainly focus on Imperials and Sith related pre-pro with the main main focus being of the Emperor.
Here is the current list:
Modern: 2004 Clone Wars Animated Tartakovsky (only) production and pre-pro. Currently I own first shot non dated Dooku, Padawan Anakin, Obi-Wan, & Mace Windu. I am always looking for any other FS from this line.
VSW: FS Tie Fighter Pilot, FS Imperial Commander non-production colors torso/head, FS Painted ATAT Commander (only two in pop report graded), FS Emperor, TFP Revenge Proof, Imperial Commander Revenge Proof, ROTJ Emperor Proof.
Hi everyone –
I've been collecting Star Wars since 1992 (30 years) and vintage Star Wars prototypes since 2006. I’ve been very focused on vintage over the years and only dabbled in modern prototypes until more recently. Over the past few years, my modern prototype collection has exploded.
My modern prototype interest is dominantly focused on the 3-3/4" lines released between 2005 and 2013. I personally loved this era of Star Wars content and collectibles. It was made even more special because I could share it with my son (Harrison), who was 5 years old when Revenge of the Sith (ROTS) was released. Harrison grew up with ROTS, The Force Unleashed, and The Clone Wars (as well as LEGO Star Wars), and continues to be a passionate and knowledgeable fan of the Star Wars universe. Together, we’ve shared many great Star Wars experiences and I’ve been able to enjoy and relive the discovery of new Star Wars content, with and through him.
While I tend to not have much competition for Episode 3 prototypes, my other areas of interest more than make up for it. Star Tours and The Force Unleashed did not have the breadth of figures other lines did so they are tough to find. For The Clone Wars, there’s heavy competition, especially for key characters.
If you’re selling any prototypes (2D & 3D) for the following lines, please message.
Thank you. (email@example.com)
- Episode 3, all characters (any series)
- TCW, all characters (2018-2013)
- Star Tours
- The Force Unleashed
*** Special interest in Anakin, Obi-Wan, R2-D2, Cad Bane, Rex, and Cody!
Hello! I’m Clifton Boggs, I owner and operate Happy Pappys Action Figure Extravaganza in downtown Canton, Ohio. I collect vintage Star Wars and many other 80s TV and movie lines. I really enjoy knock offs and the odd ball stuff.
I started collecting preproduction modern Star Wars. Because I never thought I could afford vintage.
My preproduction focus:
•Clone Wars (2008-2012)
•Jar Jar Binks
I also collect anything that catches my eye. If you think you have something that‘ll fit my collectio. Don’t hesitate to contact me.
I'm looking for POTF2 Saelt Marae
Hello, I'm Dave, and I'm an alcoholic ... wait, wrong group... whilst mostly associated for other areas of toy collecting, to some of you I'm a sucker for anything Star Wars unproduced .
I've worked in the toy industry for over 2 decades in one form or another, from design and manufacturing to marketing and retail, and within that time have been very fortunate and grateful for the people I have met along the way, including many of you.
I started what I call collecting back in 94, when I got both X-Wing and Rebel Assault on PC for my birthday, which reignited my nostalgia, even though the time passed had "relatively" been short at that point in 94. Today I run an independent toystore in the UK and love all toys. I still get the occasional call to assist in some toy development projects, but mostly for reference and research purposes as I keep a library of a few hundred or so trade catalogues, and this is mostly thanks to the popularity of start-ups through Kickstarter initiatives.
I'm always interested in anything relating to unproduced Star Wars toys, with a penchant for Episode One (I have no idea why?).
Brandon, Don, Anthony, Mark and Matthew, are like a payphone, I just keep pumping coins to keep going :)
But I love it!!!
Vive the comeback of a Forum!!
Hello 🍻 My main focus is POTF2, which I've been collecting since it first hit store shelves in 1995. I'm well on my way to completing a worldwide POTF2 collection including all variants, store displays, promo items, exclusives and many pre-production items. Check out my Facebook Page POTF2HAPPYPLACE. I will also be launching a POTF2 website this year!
Return of the Jedi was the first Star Wars film that I saw, and my prototype collecting is most focused on Jabba's Palace and the Ewoks. I'm also a musician, so the Rebo Band & any other Star Wars musicians really appeal to me. I love all of the creatures and aliens in Star Wars. As far as prototypes, I do collect characters from the original trilogy which were not released during the POTF2 era. So some POTJ, Saga, etc.
I also have a Dexter Jettster focus and a huge love for and focus on the Gungans and Watto.

Hello! I have been collecting vintage Star Wars figures since the very early 1990s, after I stopped playing with the toys. In 2017, I started collecting modern Star Wars prototypes as a way to connect with some of the modern characters and series I loved. My favorite characters are Ahsoka Tano and Luke Skywalker, and I collect modern prototypes from stories from the past 15 years, including:
The Clone Wars (2008-2013)
The Black Series (2013-present) 6" and 3.75"
The Force Awakens
Star Wars: Rebels
The Bad Batch
My longtime goal has been to add at least one Ahsoka preproduction piece to my collection each year.
I also publish a podcast called Star Wars: Prototypes and Production, which explores everything about Star Wars and collecting: the films, the figures, the prototypes, the preproduction process, the toy shows, the collectors meetups, and so much more!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any of the above for sale. Thanks!
I'll start! Besides unproduced modern Star Wars toys, I also collect the following preproduction items:
