Songwriter, musician, actor and author Rick Springfield is known for his #1 hit “Jessie’s Girl” but less known is the fact that he loves and collects toys- especially Star Wars action figures. He’s been buying them since they were released and only cost $1. Now his collection is priceless. Check out this video, produced by Rolling Stone, which showcases his incredible collection. During the video Rolling Stone visits Sotheby’s in New York during the incredible Star Wars collectible auction “Return of the Nigo” to get some perspective on the value of Springfield’s collection.
The author is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker who chooses to remain anonymous but owes his career to Star Wars, the movie which ignited his imagination in the halcyon days of his childhood during the late 1970s.
