Martin Campbell is on a mission. A mission to gather together one of the largest privately owned vintage Star Wars collections in Europe. The images below represent roughly half of this constantly expanding collection. Martin displays his favourite pieces and the rest is safely boxed up in storage until he can expand his collectors den.
“I’ve collected this lot over the last twenty years, having owned most production pieces maybe up to half a dozen times as each one gets upgraded to C9+ or AFA 85 . If you collect I’m sure you can appreciate the time and money that goes along with that.”
“My first piece was a Palitoy AT-ST in Jedi box and a 79 back Gamorrean Guard. I still have both, they are very special to me.”
Here are some highlights of this epic collection. Warning: Reading may lead to feelings of Jealousy. Jealousy leads to the Dark Side.
