    Somehow I only found out about the Cantina on Monday, the day I joined. Been a long time visitor of SWNN though.

    I'd consider myself a lover of all Star Wars things/era's. I guess my specialty would be this current era though. I'm not new to forums or even new to Star Wars forums but this is the first Star Wars forum I've been on where it doesn't seem like I'm just talking to myself. There's legitimate discussion. I'm big on theories/predictions/speculation and things like that. It makes a world of difference when there's actual interaction between members who are just as eager to talk Star Wars as you are. I'm used to posting a thread or a response to a thread and being lucky if even one person acknowledges it.

    From the short time I've been here I can tell this is a great community, I look forward to all the Star Wars talk there is to be had as we barrel towards TLJ and beyond!

    What I love about the Cantina is the respect. We are often not going to agree. But the users on this forum are great at being respectful and open-minded - giving opposing views fair consideration. This isn't the best Star Wars forum. It's the best forum period IMO.

    Welcome to The Cantina :)

    I have an assortment of stuff. Heavy into the Funko Pops right now. Upwards of 40 of those currently. I have a variety of signed memorabilia including stuff from Kenny Baker, Billy Dee Williams, Jeremy Bulloch, and others. Also collect Black Series figures (typically the 6" models). Pins, Patches, etc.

    Yeah I've had it for years. RIP. Got some cool stuff at Star Wars Celebration this year as well. I swore I'd never get into Funkos but I can't stop now. I'm working on getting some of the rarer ones if I can, but some are super impossible to find. And Funko just released the new 40th Anniversary scenes for WalMart specifically, gonna have to get those.

    *taps microphone*

    Hello everybody! After lurking this place for sometime and reading bits from topics I finally decided to sign up on the forum. What to say? I love Star Wars (duh, why else I'm here? :p) especially the OT and the PT. I've not the same, ehm, feeling for the ST (wait a minute, lower those torches :D, let me explain). Don't worry, even if I'm critical of how Disney is handling the Saga, there are some things I like. Leaving the joke about torches aside, i joined the forum because it seems a nice place in which you can talk freely about our shared interest in Star Wars and its universe without hearing someone screaming (or writing) "This is terrible, I hate you because you love this thing I don't like!1!!11!!" :p. So, this seems one of the healty parts of the fandom for the discussion. Because I love discussion and analyizing the SW universe so I'm glad I can do it in a civil places. I don't know much about the other pieces of media like animated series and novels apart from basic notions, so I'm trying to catch up with what I lost in my "curriculum" as a fan. I'm just starting reading the new comics by Marvel, they seem an enjoyable read so you'll see me in the comic section too. I don't have a favorite movie or character, really... depends on the mood. I'm not a native English speaker, I'm italian but I study languages so if you see some strange word that hasn't a meaning in my posts you know why! And that's it, sorry for this long piece but I had many things to say!

    See you in the forum! :)

    Welcome to the cantina, having a sense of strange in your posts is good, keep tapping that microphone, you might get a invitation on the resistance broadcast.

    Epic first post! Welcome! I share the same feelings as you. I've been looking around the net for a good place to talk SW and stumbled through the doorway of the Cantina this past February. This place is awesome, great people really smart on SW, much smarter than I. I pride myself in being one of the more "elder" members of the Cantina and enjoy talking with all the "younguns" on here!
