After the second core set I got the Interceptor, A-wing, YT, Firespray, and Bomber. It was at that point that I fell in love with the Interceptor. Recently I binged again and filled the rest of the group out.
Imperial: 5 TIE/ln, 1 TIE/adv, 5 TIE/in, 1 TIE/sa, 1 Firespray-31, 1 Lambda
Rebel: 3 X-wing, 1 Y-wing, 1 A-wing, 1 B-wing, 1 HWK-290, 1 YT-1300

I bought a core set, B-Wing and TIE\Int as my initial purchase into the hobby.  My second purchase was another core set, TIE\Int, TIE\Sa and HWK-290 about two weeks later.

Core, TIE/Adv, and Y-Wing all at once. From there it was TIE/LN and X-Wing at the same time, A-Wing and YT-1300...

 

Honestly can't remember the order I got the ships in.

 

My best guess is Core+Y+Adv, then A, then X and TIE/LN, finally YT-1300.


Rebels: 3 X-Wing, 1 Y-Wing, 1 A-Wing, 1 B-Wing, 1 YT-1300

Imperials: 5 TIE/LN, 1 TIE/ADV, 1 TIE/IN, 1 Firespray-31

I got my core set for Christmas. After playing a few games, picked up two more at Target 2 days later, on sale for $20.
Only kept one of them, but a few days later, got my first two expansions: Tie Advanced and an A-Wing.
Probably not the best ships to buy at that moment, but I wanted Darth Vader, and my wife liked the A-Wing.

I had played a few games with a store copy in the months leading up to my first core set, so I bought an X-Wing and a Y-Wing to go with it. I started reading the forums here, and decided I wanted to go all in so I went back out and got another core set and another X- and Y-Wing. After that I started beefing up the Imperial side, but I honestly don't remember exactly what came when.

I had seen the game on Tabletop, and so I bought exactly what they had there.  1 Core set, Falcon, and Slave.   Shortly thereafter my next purchase was 2 B-Wings, TIE Advanced, and TIE Bomber all at once.

Worst part about this statement...
I first saw this game at a Hastings about a year ago. I saw a Millennium Falcon and a core set and thought, "Hmmm... Cool models... But way too expensive for me..."

And here I am now. Everything I buy anymore, from fast food to my cell phone bill, I can't help but think. "Hmmm... I could buy (insert random ship here) instead!!"

I picked up X-wing at my FLGS (actually the only time I've ever been there).  I was walking about in a daze after a standardized test and kind of wandered inside.  I played a game there, and bought a core set.  Got together with some friends and played for a couple of hours and just had a blast.  So then I hopped online and ordered one of everything else available, a Y, an Advanced, and the stand alone X and TIE blisters.  It was easier to get started up back then.  I can't imagine coming into the game now with all the stuff that is available right away.  I've been able to slowly build up my collection.
