Hi People! New member to this forum!

I started collecting in 2012 when I was 18 properly but my first vintage items were bought for me by mum in 2005 from a small vintage toy store, they were a blue saber Jedi Luke, a Darth Vader, boxed ISP-6 and boxed Speeder Bike! man I loved those things, but like any 11 year old at the time, I was getting into other things like football, karate and hanging out with my friends, to which they probably wouldn’t think Star Wars was cool.

Fast forward 7 years to 2012, i no longer cared what people thought of what I really loved and realised I could enjoy collecting Star Wars as well as enjoy sports, so I went into the attic and pulled out my most treasured and ONLY vintage Star Wars items, hopped on eBay only to be met with thousands of vintage items I’d never even knew existed and started buying every figure, then every vehicle, every play set, shelf talkers, carded figures, vintage shop displays, vintage posters and so much more!

I’m 27 year old now and still collect at an alarming rate with no intention of slowing down! But I’m no expert on anything so I’m looking forward to being part of this community, learning more and getting to know everyone! and I’m going to set of a galaxy thread and post items from my collection in there!

Thanks for reading people!
