Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The nerd crew of The Big Bang Theory cherish their collection of Star Wars collectibles, but none of them can match the collecting prowess or expertise of the author of this book. Stephen Sansweet is the owner of the world's largest private collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Thus, it seems only right that he presides over this collection of the 2,500+ Star Wars action figures that have been created since the franchise was born in 1977. With the care of a dedicated compulsive, Sansweet traces the toy evolution of characters from Admiral Ackbar to Zam Wesell. Much easier to store than the entire collection.
