I grew up with Star Wars like all kids born in the 70's. I had all the
toys. I watched the movies over and over. I even went as Jedi Luke from
ROJ for one Halloween.
Since then, I have become more interested in the more technical issues
of filmmaking and character issues in storytelling, and have come to
appreciate George Lucas' Star Wars trilogy even more as the modern
myth that it is. I still
collect the figures, watch the movies weekly, and join with millions of

pages here on collecting both vintage and new figures, news on the
upcoming films, and links to other Star Wars sites. Please peruse and
enjoy. If you wish to discuss anything Star Wars related, just drop
me an e-mail.
