I chiefly collect items that represent ways of life or people who symbolize them. I have a 12 inch figure of Vader, as he symbolizes the devotion to his own kind of order. I wish he would have tried to overthrow the Emperor himself, because as he demonstrated with the bounty hunters, he is capable of greater leaps of logic than his master.
Other than that I enjoy collecting masks, or rather apparel worn by those who strive for their own goals, such as Jason Voorhees mask. His machette is not one of my possessions, for it is not the real one. If it were possible to aquire an authentic, metallic recreation of one, I would almost certainly own it.
I fought on the battlefield. I retired to embrace a life of discovery and profit. I carve my own path in life and am better for it.
