#40: My "mostly" manly Star Wars room.

Diane is a very patient wife. When we moved into our house a couple of years ago, I asked her if I could have one room in the basement to be my "Star Wars" room. Unfortunately for her, when she agreed to let me have it, I don't think she fully realized what she was getting herself into. Two years and many garage sales later, the Star Wars room is now complete! Enjoy the nerdiness!
I put these shelves up all by myself! I now feel like a real man....with a bunch of toys.
R2-D2 actually moves and responds to voice commands.
Now if I could only figure out a way to get him to vacuum.
Boba Fett and "Stormtrooper Han" cardboard cutouts: $4 each.
Also, notice my Kipp Dynamite poster in the back. I think he is hilarious.
Like I said, this is my "mostly" manly Star Wars room.
I have a soft spot for Disney, particularly Beauty & the Beast.
I used that big rose globe in the middle as part of the set-up when I asked Diane to marry me. 
I like bobble-heads. And boondoggle.
I love superheroes ALMOST as much as Star Wars, especially Superman.
 I know he is a bit old-fashioned, but he will always be my favorite. 
Those big faces of Captain Marvel, Superman, and Batman are painted comic
books by the legendary Alex Ross. Check out his incredible art at

I also absolutely love the Utah Jazz. Those coke bottles are from the 1991 All-Star game
in Salt Lake City. I am hoping that someday I can sell them for a million dollars and retire early.

Last but not least, here is my collection of "Scripture Hero" action figures.
As a teenager, I got the "Captain Moroni" one from three different people as birthday presents.
I suspect it was their subtle way of telling me that I needed to work-out more often. 


  1. My freshman college roommate ADORED Beauty and the Beast and sang the songs all. the. time. She was a real rare breed, but so sweet.

    I'm pretty much amazed right now.

    We found a Captain Moroni figure in a bag of junk at the Goodwill here in PA last year and I was like "what in the world"! There aren't a lot of Mormons around here, so that was a surprise!

  4. Steve, this blog is awesome! I love the poster of Kip in the background! And the Napoleon Dynamite bobble head. My husband and I are hard core fans of Jared Hess movies.One year Chris gave me Napoleon Dynamite lipgloss for Christmas and I gave him the movie poster. Thanks for sharing the gospel in such a fun way!
