I used to be a huge Star Wars collector. There was a time where I would sit outside of stores like Target and Toys R Us the days they got new shipments in to make sure I could get the action figures I was looking to add to my collection. Yes, I'm a geek. I don't do much of that these days because the economy sucks and money is tight.
For those of you who enjoy collecting Star Wars stuff, here's a really cool video that takes us on a tour through the largest Star Wars collection in the world. It's located at Rancho Obi-Wan, a museum dedicated to celebrating the memorabilia and culture of Star Wars fandom. Collector Steve Sansweet gives the tour of his museum that contains over 300,000 collectibles!
Rancho Obi-Wan is located in Northern California just outside of Sonoma, about an hour North of San Francisco. The 9,000 square foot facility reportedly houses "35 years of Star Wars treasures from all over the world, from movie-used props to tubes of toothpaste." Tours cost a staggering $200 for two people but are led by Sansweet himself and last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on how many obscure questions you feel like peppering him with.
