I've still got all my Star Wars stuff buried in a closet somewhere. I'm pretty sure I've still got all my Stompers too. I need to dig that stuff out...

oddly enough, i never got into star wars. they have a huge toy following and tons of product out right now but just never appealed to me. i wish i had gotten one of the at-at's when they were discounted at targets. it was a steal for the size of that thing. sort of like the BMF at $50 when clearanced at walmarts.

anyone get have a-team? i picked up the movie line stuff since there were only a few characters and of course the van when it hit clearance for $13.

sometimes you can find great deals at ross, tj maxx and marshalls as they normally get all the last year stuff. if you shop smartly, you can save a lot of money.

Had loads of original star wars Figures whose arms and legs didn't bend and the light sabres came out the arm and the vehicles.
I also had a 12" Luke Skywalker a friend had Boba Fett in 12" these were rare as rocking horse poo in the UK.
They all got thrown away Then I went a bit mad and got them all again plus a few more with the re-releases in the early 2000's

I had an A team Van, the figures were all wearing funny jumpsuit type things, BA didn't even have the Gold. The Roof came off the Van so they could sit inside.

Other memorable toys were a 12" Six million dollar man with a magnifying eye and and engine he lifted, you rolled his skin up on his arm and could see the bionics underneath. Mask and Transformers. OH and my all time fav was an Evel Knievel wind up stunt Bike and matching dragster.

Ive also ben collecting 1/43 scale movie cars. I have both KITT and KARR from Aoshima, the BTTF Part Two from Vietneese, the Cannonball Run black Lamborghini from whome I cant remember, the amphibious Lotus from The Spy Who Loved Me, and a model from Top Gear featuring the Stig. Im very close to picking up the A-Team van in 1/43 from Hot Wheels. Looks to be the coolest of the vans. I also have a 1/48 die cast model of Airwolf, and just picked up a 1/32 scale die cast model of Blue Thunder.

not sure anyone follows sdcc exclusives? they have started a TF/Gi Joe crossover for their annual exclusive from Hasbro. this year was a shockwave cobra hiss tank with repaint figures. these are very hard to get unless you like ebay market pricing which is 2-3x's retail for these. last years starscream skystriker was awsome but this one has a lot more to it than just the vehicle.

lol... i definitely remember the 6mdm... me and my brother had him... enjoyed looking though his eye, rolling up the "skin" on his arm and taking out and putting back the "bionics" into his arm... there was this button in his back that you would push to activate his arm to lift up the engine while saying..."nanananana" or whatever bionic sound you would make... hahaha...

and that evel knievel... was way to cool... you'd crank and wind up that red thingy with the white reel until that high pitched sound, and by the time, your hands and arms were hurting... i do remember that i got a wound on my hand at one point...

my brother and i would make him jump over everything... lol... that was fun... those were the days...
