Trending: Take cover: Amazon’s big umbrellas renew a stormy old debate about Seattle culture

If you were wondering where some of the world’s most incredible Star Wars collections are, wonder no more — one of the most impressive collections in existence is right here in Seattle.

According to Re/Code, Amazon executive Gus Lopez has been collecting since he was a kid in the late ’70s. He now has a drool-worthy collection filled with gems like a full Darth Vader costume, limited-edition lightsabers, and original toys in packaging.

Lopez even has a wall of cereal boxes.

GM of restaurants at Amazon, Lopez told Re/Code, “I go after what is hard to find. Not just valuable.”

As Re/Code reports, his 4,000-square-foot home has “more than a half-dozen rooms” dedicated to his collection, which he values at “hundreds of thousands” of dollars.

A 17-plus-year veteran at Amazon, one of Lopez’s most recent projects was launching Amazon’s Prime Now restaurant-delivery service in Portland, Ore., in October.

Several of Lopez’s Star Wars pieces are also on display at Amazon, and he has planned a Star Wars day for his team, taking them to the movie at a theater he rented for the day, then to his house to check out his collection.

Get a peek at the collection in the above A&E video from 2001’s “The Incurable Collector,” featuring this blast from the past, host John Larroquette of Night Court.
