Bothan Jedi
My small corner of the Star Wars Universe


Welcome to my small corner of the Star Wars Universe.

My name’s Chris, but you can call me Bothan Jedi. I coined the name back in 2000 when I first got into making replica props and costumes. I had to come up with a screen handle when joined the Replica Prop Forum (RPF) and thought it would be cool to be a Jedi with a twist.

The majority of this site is devoted to my hobby of collecting all things Star Wars. My main focus is replica props, which include Lightsabers, Blasters, Helmets and Masks, but I also the collect toys, figures, busts and other miscellaneous SW items. In my collection I also have a few Sci-fi/Fantasy props from other classic movies such as Bladder Runner, Indian Jones, Lord of the Rings, Monty Python, Men in Black and Star Trek.

I costume with the 501st Stormtrooper Legion and the Rebel Legion. In fact it was the purchase of a set of stormtrooper armor that sucked me back into Star War Universe Fandome and collecting. Many years later my family and friends tell me my office now looks like a toy store.

Right now most of my free time is devoted to between my R2 Project. It’s a big undertaking, and when I’m done I should have a fully functional Radio Controlled Astromech Unit.

This blog is relatively new, but I’ve had a Star Wars website for many years. It had become dated and hard to maintain. So I decided to move the content to this new site and turn it into a blog.

Hope you enjoy your visit and feel free to drop me an email any time if you have any questions.
