Post by cantina_patron on Mon Jul 04, 2016 6:33 pm

Anyone who has been seriously collecting vintage Star Wars would have heard of Vader focus collector Bill McBride. So this may not be new to many of you, but I came across this old article about his collection which includes some great photo's of some truly rare items!

Bill is one of my favorite people in this entire hobby.

His collection is outstanding, and he's a genuinely good guy. Always ready to answer questions, and has become the go-to guy for authenticating DT sabers. He makes me proud to be a part of this hobby. rockon

I love Bill's collection, makes me drool every single time I see it.
I especially like his modern prototype cabinet, lots of nice goodies in there.

Cool article. I remember when this came out. I also remember the idiots in the comment section with their ridiculous stereotyping of SW collectors. But it was nice also to see how many people stood up for Bill. Great guy, beautiful collection. Or did I mean to say beautiful guy, great collection Smile
