I started with four vintage figures and one vehicle (The Wolverine).
I managed to get several awesome figures from a local vintage toy store and a few from ToyBox. I did break my rule about Ebay once or twice. Most of those were before I made the pledge to keep away from Ebay and enjoy the actual hunt. But those pesky straight arm figures are hard to find in the wild.
What I started with:
Short Fuze, Steeler, Grand Slam and Covergirl + Wolverine
Breaker, Flash, Rock n Roll, Stalker + Toss n Cross with Tollbooth. I never had Rock n Roll or Flash when I was growing up. Always wanted them. Now I have them. Woohoo!
