Richard Patrick, front man for the band Filter and the new band Army of Anyone, isn't your typical rock star. In addition to the usual accumulation of guitars, Patrick is always on the lookout for the coolest Star Wars gear to add to his collection.
"I collected all of the Star Wars toys when I was young and I still have all the same toys, plus a lot of new ones," Patrick says. "I'm really into the full-scale prop replicas from Master Replicas. I have Anakin's lightsaber from Episode III, and two Obi-Wan Kenobi lightsabers from Episodes III and IV. I also have a stormtrooper blaster and a Han Solo blaster. But the item that I'm most looking forward to getting is the Empire Strikes Back stormtrooper armor which my friend Scotty K. from the 501st is going to help me out with."
Amongst all his collectibles, one signed by the scruffy-looking nerf herder himself stands out the most. "My prized possession is an original Star Wars poster signed by Harrison Ford," Patrick says. "My brother, Robert Patrick, starred in a movie with him called Firewall and Robert was cool enough to ask Harrison for an autograph for me." Fans might also recognize Patrick's brother as the terrifying shape-shifting cyborg T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and as stoic FBI agent John Doggett in "The X-Files."
