Pete Vilmur continues the series on Starwars.com that features the Star Wars collections from fans located in Mexico. This story focuses on Alonso Vilches.
See the excerpt below:
"Alonso Vilches has been a Star Wars fan and collector in Mexico since 1978, when he first saw Star Wars during one of its premiere engagements in Mexico City that year. His collecting began with the large Lili Ledy R2-D2 figure that was exclusive to Mexico, having added several more figures from this elusive set in the years since.
Alonso's healthy passion for all things Star Wars followed him into the mid-'90s when he founded the first Star Wars Fan Club in Mexico City, beginning a long relationship with Lucasfilm, Star Wars licensees in Mexico, and fans across the country. He has since been involved with organizing many of the Mexican Star Wars fan conventions and events since the late '90s, participating as a speaker at many of them."

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
