I have been collecting for over 40 years, since I was just 7. Of course back then, it wasn’t collecting, it was playing with toys. I was fortunate that my parents wouldn’t let me throw the boxes out. About 25% of my collection is from when I was a kid. The rest has been purchased over the last 30 years. As you can see, I am a huge Star Wars fan and nothing is better than Vintage toys, comic books, trading cards, etc. I do occasionally buy something modern or new, but mostly if it is my favorite character, Boba Fett.
Star Wars is one of my two biggest passions to come from Movies and TV. The other hit me about a decade ago with the TV Show, Spartacus. Because of that show, I actually have written a few novels called Justina: Daughter of Spartacus (available on Amazon).
