Vintage or new, who was your first Star Wars action figure?

Thinking back on this, I don't think I had any vintage Star Wars figures as a child. I remember having He-man, Bravestar, and some D&D monsters. I think the first figure I had might have been Greedo.



Now the first vintage Star Wars figure I managed to get was Jabba the Hutt. I rescued him from the fire pit.

My first figure was the Kenner Yoda. This was in the 80's. I also had an Ewok plush toy who's eyes light up.

I have very few Star Wars figures, but my first was a 1977 C-3PO. Now since I did not even come along until the late 80s, I obviously did not acquire this new. Wink

I actually found it at a garage sale, and was quite ecstatic. Smile

My first and only figure is a B1 Battle Droid I "borrowed" from my friend when I was 8!

Han Solo with this weird loader pack thing. So weird but the Han is actually quite awesome. Second was the Fett-man Cool

The first 12" figure I got was a vintage IG-88. Still one of my favorite figures.

It was an Obi-Wan figure from A New Hope. Not sure which one, exactly. The second was ROTJ Luke.

That's a great Ig-88 ya got there!

For me it was probably Power Of The Force 2 Boba Fett. The first vintage toy I ever got was a Snaggletooth, back in 1999 or so. I always liked the little guy. I lost that one, but I got a couple more since. A few years ago I decided to pick up a vintage Fett and that started me on a vintage obsession.

@Walker: Well I just nabbed that pic off the web. I guess I need to take a picture of mine sometime.

I need to expand my Hutt collection. I don't have any of the big 1/6th scale ones.

My first 12 inch SW figure was from the '90s. It is the Return of The Jedi Luke Skywalker. My next 12 inch is (of course) Thrawn from SSC.
