I wanted to share with you two old pictures I made back in in the 80ies' of my brother (aged 8 at that time) playing with SW and of our common collection. cheers
Funny enough there was some pieces I didn't remember having like the Die Cast Boba's Slave. I don't know where it went. Fortunately, my bro' and I saved the figures and stored them safely.... watch out Yoda's place...self made.
lol!
Brings back sweet memories!

Hi Alex, really great photos... sometimes I think having a couple of childhood pics is as satisfying as having some of the toys. I searched through loads of old photos at my mums for me and my younger bro opening and playing with figs at Christmases, sporting SW tee shirts, and the posters on the bedroom wall - no luck yet Sad
Don't know if you're a member of Rebel Scum but there is a stickied thread there with loads of cool childhood SW photos. Thanks for the share - and agree with Wouter... that wallpaper is ace cheers

Thanks Guys; happy that you loved my wallpaper lol! If you look well on the 1st pic (left ip) you will notice a bright orangle plush blanket 🤡 the 70ies were still not that far!!!

@ Hyver: I wish I still had the Yoda place, it certainly broke and went to the garbage..
@ Paul: I think I have other pcis but not with star wars but vintage Action Man and comic strips at my parent's place. You are right as good as having the toys!

Well this is an ESB poster featuring an AT AT. I still have it (thanks to my mom that did not threw it away). Amzingly the backside is in French with titles in English; Really weird. I made some pics.

I love that poster! What size is it? I want one for my nerd room! I can frame it and display it somewhere (hopefully!)

Nice pics. I have to root around and see if there's any or me that survived. A little mini-flood a few years ago at mom and dads soaked a bunch of photos and ruined them.

I too love the Wampa playing acordion.
