Mine have carried over from 2016 which I thought were quite straight forward, therefore mine are;

ROTJ Tusken Raider
ROTJ Lando Bespin
ROTJ Hammerhead
ESB Han, Luke, and Leia Hoth
ESB Hoth Stormtrooper
ESB ATAT Driver
ESB Yoda

More 2017 and beyond if I cannot find half decent ones at half decent prices.

I'm pretty satisfied with my collection right now, so I just have a few goals for 2017. Most of them are "grails" that I might never actually get, but I'm going to put more effort into them this year.

#1. I really really really want to add a Jessica Meade 1st shot or HC to my small character run (I've got some great trade bait)
#2. I'd really like to find either a POTF or ROTJ Boushh proof card
#3. Get an original vintage SW poster or the Birthday Cake one in nice shape
#4. Lastly, I want to have a good time at Celebration and trade buttons with many of you

Best of luck to everyone in 2017 and hope to see you at Celebration!

That will complete the first 12 and then on to the first 21 on ROTJ cards!

I did spot that one.

Trying to stick to a budget of around £100 so will be ungraded! Also looking for first picture.

1. Complete my debut Kenner 20 back run, only need Walrusman. :D

2. Complete the bebut Kenner 65 backs, need about 10 I think. :?

3. Would really like a Kenner ESB Stormtrooper as well, but it won't happen.

How's everyone doing with their targets this year? I've done my first target got a Wally back in March.

Don't think I'm going to do the other 2 targets, think I still need 8 65 backs. :?

ESB Stormtroopers are silly money IMO.

Out of my 10 goals

1. I have nearly completed my Star Wars Weekly goal, I only miss 2 comics :D

2. I have also got a lot of cardbacks and boxes with danish price stickers on them for my danish focus :D

I've actually had a good long think about this and actually still want one thing from my complete disaster of a 2016 list.
This coming year I want to get a 12 back, any 12 back. This will be a budget purchase but you can get them for around (and under) £200 so that's goal number one.
actually achieved this and got it for under £200, sadly around the same time as the car broke so it was short lived, still, there's always next year
Number two should be achievable as well - I intend to complete the first 12 loose figures, of which I need 10
sacked this one off pretty early on, very disheartened with the sharp increase in loose prices, far better value to be had in MOC and boxed items
Number three on my list is to add more KayBee stickered items to my collection
no more stickered items at time of typing but did get a KayBee carrier bag
Number four would be to have fun, go to more shows, fairs, shops, meet ups, to stay focussed and complete the first 3.
not done brilliantly at this but hopefully will make a couple of events before the year is out
Love to see everyone else's and whilst I don't want to wish the time away I can't wait to see how we have all done in 12 months time

After a great 2016 collecting my goals this year are:

One new foreign moc.
One new miscard.
One new speeder bike.

That's all. Prices are nuts at the moment so I would be happy with those three.

Can't wait for celebration. That's going to be great.

No foreign moc but I picked up a complete popy at celebration. Nice

Got a miscard at echo live earlier on in the year. Nice

Picked up several boxed speeders this year, including the awesome Danish stickered bilogo. Nice

I also have a couple of things in the offing of a similar ilk. Nice

The last thread like this got me one of my most treasured grails thanks to another member, so it does work!

Top five wants:

1: Helix felt tips pack (5 pack or 10 pack)

2: Trebor display box

3: UK series 2 Topps display box

4: Boxed 12" Chewie

5: UK Premiere invite for SW 1977 (blue ticket)


Only managed to land number 4 so far, but a sealed one :)

The Trebor boxes are proving really elusive.

Good question!

A simple list for me

1. Han Hoth offerless 48 back (fingers crossed this is currently on its way to Iain's house)

Done

2. A Palitoy die cast X-Wing MOC

Done

3. A longtime grail that is tantalisingly close and I dont want to Jinx it :mrgreen:

Was struggling to remember what this was but worked out it was my small wing DV TIE on a TIE card - Done

Otherwise I dont plan to add too much this year, but some pre-prod die cast would be nice.

Picked up a transparency of the Han Hoth stripy boot hardcopy. As close as I'll ever get to the real thing. Otherwise still no die-cast pre-prod but I have a die cast bin waiting at customs for me so all in all a very good year.

I'm doing OK so far. I have been somewhat distracted by other collecting runs than the below though, so I've been distracted from the list. Overall though, very happy

- Hero three pack; any condition or even a part complete example. Well it has Han in so I may as well dream...
Yeah, no chance, but as I said, I can but dream!
- Yan Solo, meccano ROTJ MOC
A reseal, but it is in the cabinet on display looking wonderful
- Clear down a the last few items that are duplicates to free up space and cash
Getting there...
- Boxed IG88 and Fett to complete the boxed 12" run
Got the Fett, 'just' the IG-88 to go
- To finish a couple of unfinished projects; Stormtrooper armour needs constructing and the Tie Pilot helmet needs painting. I have a commission paint job to do first though...
Both finished and on display. The commission job (2 x Y-Wings) went pretty well too

Pretty much nailed all mine... except the Ledy Speeder Bike...

Not a huge target for me in 2017... just the following ;

A full run of cardbacks.. one of each character. This will complete my triple run.. loose, moc and cardback. DONE

Any Stormtrooper cardback I don't yet own.. POTF, Top Toys for starters. Got those 2, but still looking for more - up to 33 unique cards so far

4LOM mailer - as this one is the most achievable of the ones I require.. Dengar would be good but costly. DONE (apart from Dengar)

Lily Ledy Boxed Speeder Bike Yeah Right... maybe 2018

Thought you had a lead on the ll bike on here?

They are seemingly the trickiest of the run.

Well.. I did put my interest across, but as all the MOCs ended up on eBay, I was hoping that would have gone the same way... not seen it yet. :(

I'd like to add another Meccano 20bk to my collection, complete my loose run (paploo, romba, blue snaggletooth and vinyl Jawa to go), and add to my Palitoy run - I've a few tough ones to go, so adding one or two of these would be great.

Keep going to shows, keep meeting up with friends and maybe make some new ones too.

Still 2 months to go, but I definitely won't be adding any more meccanos and while I've finished my standard loose run I'm still missing VCJ and BS. On the plus side I've added quite a few palitoys to my run!

A mixed bag!
