This forum came recommended to me by JoshEEE over at the Rebelscum forums, where we seem to have a lurker/scalper problem in our sightings forum there. So, I made my first post here a few minutes to go and here I am.
As for me, I've been a fan since my Dad took me to see "A New Hope," back before they called it that, at the Rialto Theater in downtown Tacoma, WA. I still remember the feeling of awe I had as the Star Destroyer flew over head for the first time. I primarilly collect R2-D2 toys and paraphernalia as well as the other Astromech droids, though I have a plethora of other Star Wars stuff.
Been married for 4+ years to a woman I converted into a Star Wars fan (she even has her own theory on Anakin's birth that is pretty cool) and while we don't have any kids yet, we do have a cat named Felix. He likes playing with the lightsabers, or rather I should say he likes to bat at them.
That's all I can think of. I'll be posting sightings more than anything else, so I probably won't be very prolific, but I'll be here.
