ABOUT ME

 

This web site is the home for a personal collection of memorabilia from the Star Wars movie saga, focusing mainly on items produced in Britain or for the British market, during the 'vintage' period between 1976 and 1988.

The web site is a work in progress and will be updated and expanded as I get the chance to photograph more items from my collection, or as I acquire more pieces.

I am always looking to expand my collection, and if any visitor to this site has any items that might interest me, or if you have any queries about vintage Star Wars collecting, please feel free to get in touch using the Contact page.

Thank you for visiting!

​I first saw Star Wars in 1979 at the age of 8, with my cousins in Stoke on Trent.  The movie, and its two sequels, made an enormous impression on me, and through the late 1970s and early 1980s I enjoyed collecting the action figure range, and having other Star Wars products at home and at school.

I returned to collecting in the mid 1990s, initially seeking to finish my loose action figure set, and then moving on to acquiring carded action figures and boxed toys, and the other Star Wars memorabilia and ephemera that I remembered from my childhood.  My collecting is very much focused on British memorabilia, as the memories and nostalgia of that period are my main motivation.

My collection has branched out into cinema, props, and production items, and I have been lucky enough to meet many of the cast and crew of the movies through attending and helping to organise conventions in the South West and elsewhere.

I enjoy making and collecting replica props and costumes, which are used in support of fundraising activities for various local and national charities. This photograph is from a local fundraising event, with my Darth Vader, and my children as Rey and a Jawa.

I have made many friends during my collecting journey, and the social side of the hobby, online, attending events and meeting fellow fans and collectors, is very important to me.
