Occupation: writer, well-educated slacker, bum, whatever

I was introduced to Star Wars by way of Return of the Jedi, that being in theaters in a rerelease in 1984. Loved it, and saw Empire and A New Hope on VHS shortly thereafter. Of course, like any child who saw these movies, I had to have the toys. And, here we are. I collect Star Wars, LOTR, Marvel Legends, G1 Transformers, and occasional McFarlane, Star Trek, GI Joe, MOTU, and Buffy figures. Also collect comics and DVDs. I play the guitar. Sort of.
I keep the moniker around because I like it. Hasbro really doesn't bother me that much any more.
