About JediBusiness.com

JediBusiness.com went live in March 2004 with the goal to help Star Wars fans look up figures and provide detailed information about them. The website is structured with fans in mind who want to re-create Star Wars movie scenes on their shelves, that's why you can sort figures by a variety of different categories such as toy lines, movies, characters, species, droids, pilots, jedi, sith etc...

JediBusiness.com has contributed to many Star Wars action figure related projects over the years which included taking pictures for a "Sociology in Action" textbook used in Canadian classrooms, providing images for the Star Wars episode from season 1 of the Netflix TV series "The Toys That Made Us", contributing to an article in the Cool&Collected collectors magazine or providing images for a French Star Wars Collecting book by author Stephane Faucourt.

Besides supporting third party projects the website has become a destination for collectors who look for news, commentary about the figures and interviews with the people who produce Star Wars action figures at Hasbro.

JediBusiness contributions to The Toys That Made Us and Cool And Collected

JediBusiness.com is a one person project created by Chris "Criz Bee" Bortz. Criz Bee grew up with Kenner in the 80s and began collecting Star Wars figures seriously in 1995 when Hasbro released the first wave of "modern" figures. Besides working on JediBusiness.com daily, Criz Bee also participates in panels to share the knowledge gained about collecting Star Wars action figures in the past 25+ years.
