My name's James and I'm new to the forum, introduced by way of the Vintage Rebellion podcast (great work guys!)
Ok, so this is me:
Age: 45 (old enough to remember seeing Empire in the cinema but not Star Wars)
Marital stuff: married with 2 daughters (ages 4 and 3 - just about into the Galaxy of Adventures YouTube episodes)
Work and living stuff: I'm a software project manager, based in Singapore (I'm English but have lived here for the last 12 years)
Interests (other than SW and family): most things tech, PC gaming, Python programming, football, cars, booze...
Collection stuff: 71 MOCs so far, each on their original release card front - the aim being a complete collection. Not too fussed about card backs nor whether it's Kenner or other, and no particular focus (yet)
I'm also the web admin for a new site I've created along the line of the Star Wars Tracker, http://www.mocempire.com. The background to this stems from my learning to programme in Python, an early exercise being to download info from the web, format and clean it up, then write it to a database. As I'm a vintage figure collector, plus definite inspiration from SW Tracker, I gave it a go. The result is a simple website sat on top of some Python code and a database that automatically connects to eBay, Vectis and Hakes and downloads all MOC sales info. It also calculates average prices and compares them to live eBay auctions, so you can see if something is over (or under) priced.
If anyone is interested please head over and take a look. All feedback welcome as I'll be refining the data quality and look and feel over time! I'll also refund the first month's fee for the first 25 people to sign-up.
Looking forward to contributing to the community!
