Collectors: San Proper’s Star Wars collection

People

They have an untamable passion for gathering as much quirky items as possible: collectors. Meet San. He’s a musician, producer, dj and just a really nice guy. Not many people know he’s got a soft spot for Star Wars since he was a kid. San’s Star Wars collection is now visible for the public at Volkshotel. Let him tell you a bit more about it.

San Proper Star Wars-7

“Well, yeah. Boys and their toys. I have gathered this collection along the way, a long time ago in a galaxy far away, mostly because my 7-year-older brother caught me on to it. He was the right age when the first Star Wars-movie was released in the late 70s. Which obviously was accompanied with that big wave of merchandise.

I’m not a big fan of the latest blasphemous Disney-façade and also Director Lucas has proven himself to be a dick, but these original characters and crafts bring up a lot of nostalgia. I hope it’ll do the same for you…

If you can name each vessle, droid, person and soldier on display here, you could win a prize! I’ve organised the display here at Volkshotel in a way to show you several scenes taken from”Star Wars”, “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi”.

Love. San Proper.”

About San Proper
You can catch San on a regular basis at Volkshotel, because his studio is located in the basement of Broedplaats, in the back wing of the building. Read more about that in this interview ‘San Proper: From funky festivals to basement breeding‘. Or check him out on Facebook and Soundcloud.
