Star Wars is without a doubt one of those sagas that for most people either changed their life or became a memorable landmark in it. Either way, collecting these pieces brings a joy I haven’t had in a long time.

I started collecting just after my wedding, in 2011. My wife and I bought a Dewback Sixth Scale Figure with our wedding money as a piece of art for our 6 ft display counter, which is elevated in the middle of our living room. It’s still the most impressive piece I have purchased.

Collecting inspired me to create displays for my figures, which brought me back to a form of art production. I am currently remodeling the display, creating sand ripples in parts of the dunes and I’ve added my first ever build, a Moisture Vaporator. Now my displays are my art pieces for my figures.

Stats

Likes to Collect
I collect Star Wars figures, specifically from 'A New Hope', because I rediscovered my love for the movie when introducing the original trilogy to my children two years ago. When I stumbled upon sixth scale figures I was amazed at what was happening in this industry and I couldn't think of a better way to honor the love I had for the movie as a child. Collecting Star Wars figures has brought me back to a time of complete awe, as the films broke so many barriers for what was possible.
Favorites
Sandtroopers and Stormtroopers are my absolute favorite. I know this is something that Sideshow and others will continue to put out and improve upon for years to come.
