I want to introduce myself. I'm Ben, and I've been a Star Wars fan since I was born in 1977. The first movie my dad saw after I was born was Star Wars and he loved it. I saw Empire and Jedi in the theater with my dad. I was too little to remember much of Empire except hiding when the Wampa showed up. My first Star Wars toys were an R2-D2 and Yoda on Dagobah.
I'm on the Internet all the time and I read a lot of forums - although I mostly hang out on rebelscum.com. I tend to lurk instead of posting because I don't have as much time to collect and I'm not as knowledgeable as most fans. I did read the Heir to the Empire books and many of the other novels, but besides the recent Star Wars Legacy and Kotor comics I haven't kept up as much. My daughter can tell you way more about the Clone Wars than I can, and she's five.
That doesn't mean I don't know anything. I've been a big fan of all the various Jedi in the movies and the expanded universe. R2-D2 is still my favorite character, but Yoda, the Jedi, and Skippy the Jedi droid are close seconds. At Celebration III I got to spend part of my birthday getting my picture taken with all of the Jedi actors there. I even partied with the Jensen twins later that night.
I recently helped launch a new company called the Restori Group. We're a group of fans and collectors who got tired of scrounging for a cleaner that never worked. So we made our own. You may have seen our ads in the Star Wars Insider magazine. If you have any questions about Restori or Skippy the Jedi Droid just ask. ^_^
