So my relationship with buying Star Wars collectibles is a little patchy at best. Last year I was so unprepared for the Force Friday midnight sales that I missed out on buying the items I wanted. I was actually quite cut up about it and mulled around for days in a low mood. That is why this year I wanted to make sure that I was prepared for the sales. It’s a fierce world out there, people. If you want to collect, you need to bring your ‘A’ game to play with the big boys!
As I write this, I am recovering from a very bad night of almost no sleep and I was feeling a little unwell so I didn’t go to work today. But as soon as I start thinking about Star Wars, I suddenly feel entirely rejuvenated. I think it’s safe to say that Star Wars is in my veins and there is no way it’s ever going to leave.
So last night I managed to get almost everything I wanted including all of the First Edition Black Series release figures!! I am so over the moon about this. I honestly didn’t think of the First Edition stuff but it makes sense because some of those toys will be considered first edition because they’re brand new to the Star Wars franchise. Toys for The Mandalorian, Cal Kestis and the Second Sister from the Star Wars game Jedi Fallen Order – all first edition.
You do not want to know how much money I’ve spent today… it’s probably the most I’ve spent on figures for a long time. I have been patiently waiting for this day for months now and I am so glad it finally paid off.
The only thing is my partner doesn’t know how much I bought or spent yet 🤣 and I am lucky he likes Star Wars and supports my fangirling. I think I’ll be somehow putting this to the test when he sees how many figurines I bought 🤣
