    The title says it all. He will be leaving in April 2011 after 15 years with Lucasfilm to pursue something new. Insider and the Celebrations won't be the same without him!

    They finally caught Sansweet trying to clone a George for his personal collection - kidding, just kidding...

    I feel that much more fortunate that I was able to meet him at Last Tour to Endor during CV. What a huge change.

    Sadly I never had the chance to meet Steve but he did answer two of my questions to his "Star Wars Insider" column over the years and he's been the face of collecting since I got into it back in 2000. It's not going to feel quite the same with him gone.

    I just wonder if Lucasfilm will fill the post or just quietly let it stay vacant and fade away?

    I really hope they don't do away with that position, but I haven't heard anything regarding their plans.

    This is Steve Sansweet's last week at Lucasfilm. If you're on Facebook you can see his goodbye message and wish him luck on his page.
