Back in ’05, Natasha Eloi from Spacecast here on Canada’s Space Network did a video feature called “It Came From the Basement” where she highlighted a unique Star Wars Toy Collection from Robert Goodwin.
Then just last night while I was watching Smallville there was another featurette about a gentleman named Gus Lopez who runs the Star Wars Collectible Archive online and has a VERY unique home that is completely decorated to illustrate his vast collection.
This guy makes Robert Goodwin look like someone who just happens to have a few Star Wars things around. Gus Lopez was kind enough to send me a link to his home galleries. His ENTIRE home was designed with the intent to show off his collection. There are links to each individual room, themed by the type of collectable. He even has a room dedicated to Star Wars Cereal Boxes. Not kidding.
He has some of the most rare Star Wars collectables in existance. Up to the left there is a replica molded from the original Han Solo in Carbonite prop.
Most often when I see a Star Wars collection, I can say “Hey, I remember that toy. I used to have it” but about 99.9% of his collection is made up of stuff that NO ONE has.
I am a rabidly insane Star Wars fan, but I bow down to the unreachable standard Gus as set in the world of Collectors.
He and his wife also collect Lilo and Stitch stuff, so you may see a lot of that and anime stuff littered among this outstanding pile of Star Wars stuff. Click Here to see the house Gus and Pam call the Boba Cabana
Cheers Gus. The Force is strong in you.
