Editors' reviewThis database-style program should handle just about everything a Star Wars collector needs. The tabbed interface is certainly no work of art, but does make it easy to create lists, manage your collection of Star Wars-inspired goods, and generate reports. Super Collector's Star Wars Database includes a massive preloaded master list that lets the user search items by category (such as action figures, glasses, or towels) manufacturer, or by a custom specification. You can make separate lists for items you own, duplicates, or Star Wars stuff you want to get your hands on. In addition, the program lets you add data such as value, condition, price paid, and date acquired. Reports can be generated in CSV and HTML formats, though some hard-core collectors may find the 25-item demo limit a bit chintzy. Nevertheless, the application will be useful to its very specific niche audience.
Star Wars Collectors need this database catalog to track the current value and contents of their own collection. It comes preloaded with a master database of over 75,000 individual items and is supported with bi-weekly data updates. More than 40,000 photographs makes identification fun and easy.
Collectors may look up their pieces by category or manufacturer and add them to their "Collection", "Spares", or "Wanted" lists. Reports with collector selectable details are available. The database supports multiple instances of the same item and allows notes to be kept on each individual item. A video based learning center quickly provides answers and advanced training to get the most power out of this world class sized application.
This database was written and supported by Geoffrey Carlton, the author of the Star Wars Super Collector's Wish Book, available at most local and online book stores.
