Local Star Wars collector reflects on 40th Anniversary of Star Wars films

BELMONT, W.Va. (WTAP) - Star Wars turns 40 today and the true fans in the Mid-Ohio Valley feel the excitement.

Children that grew up in the 70's were all about Star Wars and have been collecting the various classic items.

Aaron Hickman, of Belmont, says he's been collecting Star Wars memorabilia since 1979, when he received a C-3PO for Christmas, and hasn't been able to stop.

“I basically started out with the figures as a kid and continued. It’s gotten worse since I got a job and as I get better jobs. I have a lot of the original stuff in package and I have almost all the original run, I think I'm missing twelve of the high dollar figures."
