Saturday, September 28th, 4pm – Posters with Pete Vilmur
Pete is co-author of The Star Wars Poster Book and has spent years meticulously researching the history of vintage posters. We will take a look at some of the more interesting, rare, beautiful, silly and bizarre posters from the depths of the flat files.

Saturday, October 12th, 4pm – LEGO® with Marc Morita and Caleb Raff
Marc is one of our resident docents, and an expert on all things LEGO. Caleb owns the Brick Hutt in Rohnert Park. We will talk about the history and impact of LEGO on Star Wars collecting, view some MOCs (my own creations), and the rarer items from the vault.

Saturday, November 2nd, 4pm – Vintage Kenner with Dwayne Smith and Marc Huber
Dwayne is one of our resident docents, and an expert on vintage Kenner. Marc Huber is an expert on POTF coins. We will rummage behind the racks for vintage goodies from around the world including action figures, vehicles, and Micro Collection.
