Collector of The Week – A Geeky Collection From A Galaxy Far, Far Away 

A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, a movie from a far away galaxy, comic books and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.

This Week’s Collector – A Geeky Collection From A Galaxy Far, Far Away

This week’s collection is from Greg. Greg is an awesome dad and has a very cool Star Wars collection. This is what Greg wrote about his collection. 

So let me say that I don’t really call myself a ‘collector’, not in the usual sense anyway. I don’t have hundreds of mint, unopened, original Kenner Star Wars figures (I wish!), but I’ve been a Star Wars fan since I was a kid, and have picked up a few thinks along the way.

I’ve got Pop Vinyls of Rey, Boba Fett, Kylo Ren and a First Order Stormtrooper, and a couple of Disney Infinity figures that I picked up in a discount store. Not to play the game with, just because I liked the figures!

More On His Collection

I’ve got 2 pieces of canvas wall art in my place, a four section piece of the Falcon, and another single canvas of Kylo Ren, lightsaber ready to strike. As well as a few books that people have gifted me over the years, I’ve got 2 Metal Earth model kits of the Falcon and a Star Destroyer. Very fiddly to build, but I think the look awesome! And I’ve also got Lego. Real Lego, in the shape of the TIE pilot helmet, and an X Wing, and the largest item in my small collection, the Fake Falcon! 100% not legit LEGO, bought from Wish for about $180 during the pandemic. It might look a bit dodgy in places, but it was great fun to build and I love having it on display in my apartment. 

Thanks for sharing Greg. I like the collection and the Metal Earth model kits look amazing. The Falcon canvas too!
