Oh you Star Wars geeks

Check this out...


Such wonderful memories. And I realized that I was a spoiled brat when I was growing up because I had about ALL of that stuff.

Now ... I do have a beef. I had the Princess Leia Barbie-sized action figure.. the one that had synthetic hair.

These directions.... SUCKED ARSE!

You could NOT put her hair back in those buns. It was physcially impossible. So my Leia ... she had long brown hair and no longer looked authentic.

But guess who I still have in my possession...

Him.

I remember looking in the bottom of our closet when I was seven or eight ... right before Christmas. I remember finding all three of them ... shiny and new in their boxes.

And I remember, like a moron, spilling it to my Mom that I found them.... and then tried to back-peddle like I hadn't seen them.

Yeah. Proud moment right there.

Big ditto here. I never got Leia's hair back in buns either.

Man, I wish I still had her!

I still have trading cards. I never got the action figures, only my brother, the little twerp. No jealousy there, noooooo.

Barbie's so were not my thing...Princess Leia or otherwise. But I can imagine that once you took her buns out, that was it. (Oh, that sounds so dirty, eh? LOL)
