My name is Jim Stewart (darthdad67). I live in Oxford, MI and been a fan of Star Wars since New Hope first came out in 1977. I was living in West Palm Beach, Florida and 9 years old when I first saw the movie. I was in amazed, just like all of us as a kid seeing this awesome movie on the big screen.
I remember the first thing I ever owned of Star Wars was a spiral notebook, for school, with C3PO and R2D2 on the cover. I will say that C3PO was one of my favorites next to Obi Wan Kenobi (Ben).
We had a toy store called Lionel Playworld, when my mom bought my little brother and I the first Star Wars toys that came out. We got every character, but made sure to keep certain characters. My brother got the Darth Vader, Han, Chewie, Hammerhead, R2D2, and Stormtroopers. I ended up owning Luke, Ben, C3PO, Jawas, Death Star Gunner, Stormtroopers, and Tusken Raiders. I got the X-Wing fighter and Landspeeder. My brother got the Tie Fighter and Droid factory.
This is the first Star Wars online group that I have ever joined. I am glad to be part of Sandtroopers. This is a really cool site to be a part of. Thanks Darth Spice for making this site possible for all of us Star Wars fans.
