Hey fellow collectors, just thought I'd introduce myself quickly. I am but fifteen years old as of today and have been collecting since the second of April of 2005. I am glad to be carrying the collecting torch, so to speak, and intend to continue to do so until, well, Hasbro's license runs out.

Welcome to JD, Shawn.  Bunch'a old farts around this joint, so we could use some additional youthful enthusiasm.  ;)  Happy (belated) Birthday to you too, it sounds like.

So what do you collect?  The ROTS 4" stuff, I assume...  Enjoy the site, and give us a holler if you have any questions, comments or suggestions about anything.  Looking forward to chatting with you around the boards here...

Hey JediMac, thanks for the warm welcome! And yes, it was my fifteenth birthday two days ago.  ;)

I really only collect the 3 and 3/4 inch line, but I do like Gentle Giant's bust ups, as well. However, I do like the Original Trilogy far more than the Prequel Trilogy, even though I'm younger. Revenge of the Sith is definitely my third favorite Star Wars movie with only A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back being superior.

You may be younger in age, but your thinking is similar to a lot of the older guys around here.

Welcome, Shawn!  Enjoy JD.

Indeed. Wise beyond his age.

Welcome!

Well, I grew up watching the Original Trilogy with my dad (who is an OT purist, by the way) and have always found it superior to the Prequel Trilogy. Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to getting some Original Trilogy characters, but main and otherwise, next year with The Saga Collection.

And again, thanks for the kind welcomings, everyone!
