    Were lando and Duke dosed with LSD by Dr. Mindbender and hallucinating Smurfs? That's some pretty dark playtime there lol!

    Ouch. You were such a little baby when you got the Ewok Village? I was like 2 years older (5 y.o.) when I got my first figures from the first movie and I was like 13 or 14 when I got an Ewok Village. Looks like you took care of your toys even at a young age though

    p.s. should have read the whole thing, I see you say you were 4...I was thinking it looked like you were 2 or 3.

    Dang, we have a similar story...I was allowed to have Star Wars toys at first but then my Dad got real religious and said I was obsessed (at about 6 years old) so he made me pack them all up and carry them to the dumpster. I would tear out the pages of the Christmas catalogs that had Star Wars toys and hide them under my mattress and would stay awake sometimes until the morning imagining that I had all the toys on those pages.

    I miss the good old days of the late 1970s up to 1983 where birthday cakes were of G.I. Joe, He Man, or Star wars.

    That and seeing any old early 1980s Christmas photos of Star Wars figures or any actiion figure of anything from He Man or Go Bots, even Power Lords and original Transformers toys

    As I mentioned in earlier posts, it seems like a lot of kids growing up in the late '70's/early '80's had those "bowl" hair-cuts - LOL.

    Sorry to hear this. I have a similar story, but it didn't directly affect me. When I was a kid back in the '80's, a friend was a huge SW fan, maybe even more than I was (and that's saying something). My friend's father got exasperated for some reason and finally told him (and I quote): "Star Wars is corrupting your mind!" To this day, I've always remembered this - obviously the parents in that family didn't appreciate SW as much as the kid - LOL.

    However, I actually think the SW characters are, in most cases, positive role models for kids. Han Solo started ANH looking out only for himself, then at the end of the film did come back & helped Luke save the day.

    Even Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker - who was extremely evil for years - finally did redeem himself in ROTJ.

    He opened it:



    I forgot about this Tauntaun I had. You can barely make out the box in the pile:

    I think these pictures would be best appreciated here, its not from MY childhood but its certainly from someone's. I bought the best shoe box ever today. Not because of the contents but the box itself. It just screams "the most awesomest kid ever owned this." Picked it up at a flea market. Sorry its so pic heavy but I just love the hodge podge contents. Puffy stickers, awesome. You know you don't just waste your stickers on just any old thing, so I imagine that box played host to a few figures in its time. I doubt if the contents are all from the original owner. But the art, the grab bag nature and the obvious personalization of it made it a no brainer to pick up.

    Incidentally, does anyone know what the little paper figures are from?

    DarthPete - that box and its contents are amazing. What a wonderful assortment. Love the Millenium Falcon in Echo Base illustration inside the box.
