then shot me down. Wampa rub? B-) Slave Leia not included? :_| My favorite Star Wars toy was the original of this one: http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=4504. Unfortunately, it was lost during a change of station only months after I bought it in 1982, along with a few other no-longer-available Lego sets.
I have the tauntaun sleeping bag and I absolutely love it! I'm hoping to add more Star Wars paraphernalia to my collection -- a lightsaber would be awesome...
When I was a kid, I had a 12-inch Boba Fett action figure. My friends all had Luke, Han, or Leia. But, my Boba was cooler than all of them. What was your favorite Star Wars toy? Do you still have it?
I had the big one with the removable cape. They don't make that one anymore far as I can tell. I have a bunch of boxes of stuff at my Mom's house. He could be in there, but I'm not sure what condition he would be in. Wish I taken better care of him, but alas that's what most kids don't do. *sigh*
Dunno if my parents still have it in their attic but I had the Death Star for the Kenner action figures (if I remember, it looked nothing like the Death Star). It did have a trash compactor with foam chunks though. And as for the Boba Fett costume - does it come with a working rocket?
