DALLAS — Anthony Grzyboski, a library staff member, is displaying his Star Wars collection during the month of April at the Back Mountain Memorial Library. The collection consists of an At-At Walker, two model ships, four large figures, a model of Darth Vader’s head, several regular-sized figures and many more items.
Grzyboski has been collecting these items for 15 years after he began watching the movies. He has received several as gifts and has purchased the others. His favorite piece is the At-At Walker he found at a flea market a few years ago.
Star Wars toys were originally manufactured by the Kenner Toy Company in 1978. Other toy companies have purchased the rights to produce these toys over the years. With the release of each new Star Wars movie, the toys would again go into production often being re-designed along the way. Grzyboski believes with the popularity of the Star Wars movie released in 2015, Star Wars memorabilia will continue to be collectible for years into the future.
