One of the Coolest Star Wars Basements You'll Ever See | Holochronicles #showmeyourcollection

As Dr. Evil once said, "Welcome to my underground lair." I'm not sure I'd ever leave Thomas's basement if I had his set up!

Thomas has a great Star Wars resume - beyond having a fantastic eye for collection and display. He is a recent 501st member with his Captain Rex Phase 2 kit (totally awesome) - shout out to the Carida Garrison!

His work as an Army JAG Officer has granted him some unusual access into ComicCons and Celebrations. He has served on a number of panels at such events to hold Star Wars characters to task from a court-case point of view. For example, at SDCC he sat on a panel discussing the law of the MCU (for example, did Capt. America commit war crimes by breaking the Sokovia Accords). At a Wonder Con, he was on a mock trial where Artoo and Threepio sued the Mos Eisley cantina for discrimination (throwing them out in ANH)...."I helped defend the cantina lol." Here's a clip of him giving his closing argument at the court martialing of Poe Dameron:

In a basement that has a ton of stuff in it, what's your most prized item? My original Al Williamson pen & ink layout comic page. Aside from being original art by one of the original Star Wars masters, it was a gift from my dad, so the sentimental value is sky high.

Who is your favorite SW character? Vader is my absolute favorite, but the clones collectively are a close 2nd (if you couldn’t tell from the amount of them in the collection). I went crazy trying to find all the unique TCW troopers they released from 2008-2012...many hours spent crawling up and down toy aisles!
