Jackpot!

Lately, my son is a HUGE Star Wars fan... for Christmas he got an XWing fighter (the 2004 version doesn't have sound effects, like the 1980 version did) and earlier this week, a TIE-FIGHTER hubby found on Ebay.

Oh my god - I remembered! I was a huge Star Wars fan! And wait - I had most of those original things!!!!!!!!!! So last night, we asked Uncle Sonny to go into my Mom's attic and retrieve my old toys. We only found 1 of 3 boxes, but look at what we found:

  • Boba Fett's Slafe Ship, 1980
  • Tauntuan ( the animal they ride in the beginning of Empire Strikes Back ) http://starwars.carrotnetwork.com/reviews/2003/battleofhoth/29.jpg
  • A Darth Vader Case full of action figures...full I tell you!
  • Scout Walker
  • TWO Speeder Bikes
  • Millenium Falcon
  • Jabba The Hut Playset

    Is the tauntaun the one with the split belly that you could stuff luke skywalker into (like in Empire Strikes Back)? I think I would've wet myself if I stumbled on a motherlode of Star Wars toys. Ok, probably too much sharing.
