Collecting Star Wars Toys, Figures and Playsets For Fun

If you are collecting, or preparing to start collecting Star Wars toys, figures or other kinds of collectible items, you don’t necessarily have to be the utra serious type of collector who hopes to make a fortune one day by selling his unique collection on eBay. There’s nothing wrong with collecting your favorite Star Wars or Clone Wars characters, vehicles or scenes just for fun. If you’re just starting, here’s a couple of tips to help you choose the ideal category of Star Wars collectables to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

What Star Wars toys / figures to choose?

When collecting for fun, not for money, it’s generally a good idea to select a category based on your personal preference, but still follow your common sense in terms of price, size and availability of your chosen category of Star Wars collectibles.

  • Price: You will probably want to stay away from rare vintage Star Wars figures, exact lightsaber and blaster replicas and other expensive items. Instead, make an estimate on the size of collection you want to build, and then look for more affordable alternatives which don’t exceed your budget.
  • Size: Unless you have a separate room reserved for the sole purpose of storing your collection, you’ll probably avoid collecting large scale items like the wearable types of Star Wars helmets, blaster rifle replicas etc. Fortunately, most of these items also exist in scaled versions, which doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to sacrifice high level of detail, quality material and good workmanship.
  • Availability: If you want to continue collecting your favorite Star Wars toys for some time to come, you’d better choose items produced in large numbers, which are easy to find and purchase. It’s a good idea to stick with manufacturers like Hasbro. LEGO and other brands, which hold a long-term license for producing Star Wars and Clone Wars official merchandise.

My Personal Tips

Here’s my top 3 list of items which comply with the above recommendations, and which I personally find interesting and fun to collect.

  • LEGO mini Star Wars figures
    What makes them my top choice is that besides meeting all the mentioned requirements, they are extremely popular both among adult collectors and their children. The line of Star Wars minifigures includes all your favorite characters you can think of, some of them in several different versions. The fact that the parts are interchangeable makes them easily customizable, which adds even more value.
  • Star Wars Mighty Muggs figures
    This is a very popular line of collectible 6-inch vinyl figures released by Hasbro is recognized by typically large character head and chunky body. It includes an entire suite of Star Wars characters inspired by the original movie saga, the Clone Wars animated series and even the related video games. If you are creative, you can even buy a blank white customizable figure and create your own unique designs.
  • Star Wars Titanium Series die-cast vehicles
    If you prefer spacecraft and vehicles to the figures, you should consider Hasbro’s line of very detailed metal die-cast collectibles called Titanium Series. It replaces the original line of die-cast collectibles produced by Kenner since 1979 and brings back all the quality and detail which makes these toys very popular among collectors.
