  1. So. Much. Awesome. Content. Guys.

    I like that the collection has just about everything, including fan-made pieces. Really covers the gamut in terms of the fandom. And it isn’t too far, might have to visit this place. 🙂

    PS. Where is the link to their website, Joey? 🙂

  2. Thanks, but I’ve a LOT of help from (Sam Ballard)– production guy helping us out with shooting and editing. It’s been allowing us to get a higher volume out.

  3. I have been lucky enough to have been on the real Tantive IV, after they rebuilt the set for Revenge of the Sith. It was the Star Wars-related highlight of a lifetime!

  4. How on earth does Steve fund such a collection? He even mentioned that the museum was not-for-profit didn’t he?

  5. Cheers, still, that’s one hell of a love, it probably just makes it easy to sink the money into it. He certainly is a “high functioning hoarder”, seems like a really nice guy.
