Hello to all,

I've been a member since June 2015, I joined the forum as I still have most of my childhood Star Wars collection. I'm not really into vintage and prefer the modern stuff based on the OT, I have quite a few of the Vintage collection and some of the larger ships which have been released. I also collect OT six inch figures though I prefer SH figuarts and Mafex to the black series ones.

My daughter Eliza has been brain washed by me so loves Star Wars also, I took her to see Rogue one at the cinema when it came out and it was the first film she ever saw at a cinema. She has played with some of the modern that I have collected, loves the BMF and the large AT AT and has started her own Star Wars collection. I did have to buy a Jar Jar binks figure for her as The phantom menace was her favorite film to start with, then ROTJ due to the creatures in Jabbas palace, though she has now moved on to Empire strikes back which she just calls the snow one!

Name: Clay
Age: 43
Single/married: with partner for 17 years
Residence: Northants
Occupation: Currently looking
Kids: one daughter named Eliza aged three and a half
Pets: one dog Molly and two cats George and Leia (wasn't allowed to name the dog)
Collecting focus: Modern OT
Character focus: OT mostly
Other interests: Motorbikes, PS4 and anything RC

Hi all I'm new to collecting star wars figures, I am at a bit of a crossroads I recently re found a whole box of figures in my parents attic, I have gone through them and done a little research and bagged them up, originally with the intent to sell but I'm quite tempted to keep them as a collection... thought I would check out the forum here and see how it goes?

Hello all. Just joined this site. My name is Anthony and I am 45 years old. I work full time at a well known online retailer named after a famous river. I am married with two daughters. I collect autographs and of course vintage star wars. I have amassed 32 pieces so far and looking for the last 14 I need. These are all boxed and complete with instructions sheets etc. I also have all 100 figures in a display cabinet. These are loose but complete with correct weapons and accessories.I also have the run of marvel UK star wars vintage comics. I buy and sell a lot of various items as well to raise funds where applicable. Thanks guys.

Hi everyone, I'm John Galantini. I left Facebook a few months ago and the Echo Base group is probably the one thing I miss about it. Now I have no reliable source for buying vintage figures, so I found SWF and thought i'd join and maybe track down some of my old Echo Base friends? I also do a Star Wars fan podcast called 'Blah Wars' which you can find on iTunes.

Hi All,
I'm new to collecting star wars figures. My name is Ryan Lowe, 28 years old, married with 2 children and from Accrington.
I have been looking for a few months at starting a collection after speaking with a fellow member and getting the bug. I have purchased a few loose figures and a Millennium Falcon with box for which I need some parts. I have joined this forum to educate myself and learn from the people that know. I apologise in advance for any silly questions that I may ask. After having a think I have decided to make completing The First 12 and also completing the millennium falcon my main aim and i am hoping this forum will help with that.
Look forward to speaking and learning from many of you.
