Re: More Star Wars films announced

I loved those old '80s and '90s garage sales. You could find Star Wars and Star Trek items if you were in the right place at the right time. One sale I ran into had a person selling their Darth Vader action figure carrying case with quite a handful of original Kenner figures inside. They wanted a little more than I was willing to pay for a case and figures I already had, but it was fun cracking open Vader's head and seeing a few classic Stormtroopers, droids and Rebel troopers staring back at me, most still having their original weapons and accessories.

As amazing as the current era of collecting has been, nothing will ever touch those old school Kenner figures for pure nostalgia and fun.
