Star Wars vintage toys on Gilt: Photo gallery
Like innumerable males and quite a few females around the globe, I have a tendency to revert to the truly important things when it comes to collecting. My first loves: Queen records, boom boxes, Matchbox cars and Star Wars figures all look pretty good right now. Gilt Children has my number (um, are these really going to purchased for children or is that a dig at the manchild in me?)—tomorrow at 11am CST, gilt.com features 30 hard-to-find vintage Star Wars toys hand-picked by vintage toy authority Brian Semling and rated by the Action Figure Authority (AFA). So die-hard collectors will want to poise a finger at the mouse and get that credit card ready, these won't come around again too soon. Another tip: The ultra-rare Imperial Forces 3-pack will definitely turn a few heads, but you might not want to talk about it on a first date.
