Yamaro is part of the Original Trilogy ilk and collected some of the figures and toys when he was a lot younger. This collection dissipated as he grew older until his passion was rekindled in the early Noughties and he discovered Ebay. Yamaro started off amassing a collection of Star Wars Lego kits and since then has digressed into anything Star Wars. The main character that he likes to collect is Yoda and so he will tend to look for anything to do with him first, after this if it has the Star Wars (and/or Lucasfilm) logo then he is interested.

    He has a passion for the Star Wars computer games and has spent many an hour playing the X-wing and TIE Fighter games, along with the first person shooters (namely Dark Forces) on the PC format and more recently the games released on the Playstation format.

    In June 2007 Yamaro set up his own business and in September 2007 'Master Collectables' exhibited at it's first event. He now attends large and small events up and down the country and looks forward to meeting you in person at one near you soon.

    Yamaro's other interests in life (that he squeezes in around Star Wars) are raising his family, sport in general but mainly motorsport and martial arts (limited to watching).
