For the biggest Star Wars Nerd. Fan.

I have all the starwars videos in DVD and VHS
I have about 75 Star Wars Action figures (not dolls)
I constantly quote master Yoda
I can play the Star Wars theme with my eyes closed
I am saving up for a lightsaber and a robe just like the Emperors.

One of my husband's friends has about 95% of the *original* action figures and other toys, all in their original packaging. He also has a Storm Trooper costume (one of the good ones). Owns all of the movies on DVD and VHS.

When he retired from the Navy? Darth Vader, a Tye (sp?) Pilot, and a Storm Trooper showed up.

Epic nerdwin.

Oh...and just for the hell of it, I'll add that I walked down the aisle to "The Imperial Death March" from "Empire Strikes Back" when I got married...a full 3 years before my husband became a Star Wars nerd.

Ah, young Padawan... you should have been at last year's movie memorabilia auction my boss had here in - of all places - Okieland. A well-known collector passed away and we had tons of stuff from just about every genre... but lots and lots of Star Wars and Star Trek. We had several lightsabers - one of them double-headed like Darth Maul's. A life-size Watto. Action figures. Signed photos. Original posters.

I wanted that double-headed lightsaber... :D

"Begins a discover motion"

Your Jedi mind tricks won't work on me. My mind is protected by a forcefield of filth.

Who said it didn't pay to have a dirty mind? :D

Some of us are just older and we've had longer to collect and contemplate. I was old enough in '77 for non-nerds to make fun of when I saw A New Hope for the first time on the big screen... you know, back in the Old Days when 'special effects' weren't CGI.

You have much to do, Grasshopper; and much money to spend, before you may join the rank of MegaNerd.

What is Star Wars anyway?

Is it like celebrity apprentice?

Don't throw tomatoes until the end of my statement please. Train of thought tends to derail.

I don't own action figures, posters, soundtracks or anything, except an original set of the trilogy. You know, the one where Han shot first and Hayden isn't Anakin at the end of 'Jedi'. That being said, I've read about 90% of the Bantam novels, and some of the Del Ray stuff. After I finish with the novels I'm starting on the comic strips.

Don't kick me in the face or head. It was a dare, and I accepted. I can't back down. But I hated everything from Vector Prime onward in chronology. :Soapbox:

Okay. I know. I'm a dork. You can throw tomatoes now.
