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.Connect with me at Facebook.com at https://www.facebook.com/david.w.carr or Google Plus at https://plus.google.com/113979543522032932148Below is a list of collecting resources I would recommend you check out if you have not already.
