At Homestay.com we're excited to say that we've signed up the UK’s biggest ‘Star Wars’ superfan to host the ultimate themed stay. From today, members of the public will have their ‘force awakened’ when they book to stay with superfan Dave Oldbury and his £150,000 ‘Star Wars’ collection.
Dave from Southampton has one of the most coveted ‘Star Wars’ collections in the world. His prized possessions include posters, toys, action figures, books and life-size Storm Troopers. Not content with filling his house full of the blockbuster’s memorabilia, Dave’s garage is packed to the brim with more than 500 figurines from the film. Dave has roamed the world in search of autographs from ‘Star Wars’ biggest stars, including the likes of Alec Guinness and is so dedicated to the franchise, that he also has tattoos of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader all over his body.
Dave said “I look forward to showcasing my collection to fellow ‘Star Wars’ fans. I became a fan of the franchise as a schoolboy after watching the first film in 1977 when I was eight years old. Since then, I’ve scoured the world in search of meeting cast members from the various films. I have lots of stories to share from hanging out with my heroes and I look forward to giving my guests the inside scoop!”
