Hi all,

I have literally been a life-long Star Wars fan and collector.  Born in 1973, Star Wars was timed perfectly for my youth.  I have enjoyed collecting over the years and sharing with friends and family (now kids).  I look forward to contributing my collecting experience to Collector Dash.  Please feel free to say hi.  It is always great to meet like-minded collectors.

I am first and foremost a Star Wars vintage collector, but certainly enjoy the newer lines as well.  If you have any questions regarding vintage collectibles let me know as I work hard to maintain the database in Collector Dash.  

I am based in Southern California and have met many great collectors over the years both locally and across the world.  As a collector literally since Star Wars merchandise first came out I have seen various changes over the years. It has been a fun ride, but when it comes down to it meeting fellow collectors has been the highlight.

I try and regularly attend various conventions and shows and meet-up with like-minded collectors whenever possible.  I am a member of the Orange County Star Wars Society (http://www.ocsws.com/). I have a blog I update periodically at http://www.lightside.org/blog where you can get updates.

    Awesome Star Wars collection! You must have "died and gone to heaven" with The Force Awakens! And I bet your significant other shudders now seeing how your collection is definitely growing with some of the new characters. Kylo Ren is an awesome figure!
