The end of an era is upon us as a collecting community. Dan Curto has announced on his Facebook page today that he is no longer with Rebelscum. Dan's passion, tireless energy, and love for the hobby has created the most prolific Star Wars photo archive on the net and played a huge part in making Rebelscum what is today. While he will certainly be missed, his talent and drive won't be easy to contain and we look forward to his next project. Thanks for all your hard work, efforts and contributions Dan! Collecting News will not be the same without you (at least temporarily, we imagine.). May The Force Be With You, Always.
