Master of All Things Stormtrooper Edit
Back in 78, when most users were just a glimpse in their dad´s eye, I was born in a tiny, yet culturally and economically rich country named Austria. When being 6 years old, I saw my first movie - "Die Rückkehr der Jedi-Ritter". What´s that? Return of the Jedi for those who wasted years learning a language they can´t use anywhere ;)
I was a StarWars fan back then, but really became one again with Zahn´s Heir To The Empire Trilogy. It spawned a new SW fandom, and also - pretty important to me ;) - it caused Hasrbo to launch a full new line of Star Wars toys. So that´s my passion - collecting SW Stormtrooper and Clone toys ;) Got 223 by now, every one unique, and no end in sight.
I despise Episode I and quite a lot of EU (like Crystal Star or the Truce At Bakura cuz those two are pretty stupid). But I´m a Zahnologist, because not only has he written the very best SW novels (Thrawn Trilogy), but spawned a new generation of fans.
I got a teaching diploma and am interested in World History, pretty much an Expert in the two World Wars and quite good in everything from the 20th century.
223 Hasrbo Stormtroopers and Clones, every single one different.
Dark Empire (hate it), Legacy, Crimson Empire ...not a big fan of comics
X-Wing, Tie-Fighter, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, Rebel Auusault 1+2, Jedi Knight 1, Battlefront 1-2, ...
all of Zahn (part English, part German), The most important ones of the Vong War, most of the 90ies novels (German)
