Or does anybody else get the urge to run to Target and buy Star Wars figures after seeing this scene in "A New Hope"?

Actually theres something else I get the urge to do when I see Leia on screen. ;)

Any scene in any film really, makes me want to buy figures. Chances are if I'm watching the films I'm already in a buzz mood for the figures. Oftentimes its the figures that put me in the mood for the films. If I were to pick a scene though it'd be the part in ESB when Han arrives back at Echo Base on his tauntaun.

Was there even a Target in 1977? Probably up in Minnesota, but here in Illinois, I didn't start seeing them until much later. Still I can see the "Target" symbol just above Artoo.

Anyways, no that frame does not make me want to buy figures. I does however make me mad that Hasbro hasn't made a Leia that can bend over like that. Easy Devo...............:whip:

Here, Target bought out Ayre Way in the LATE 70's, early 80's it seems. My grandmother worked for Ayre Way during the time. I just remember they were all green and Target bought them and everything turned RED.

Just got back from buying all the action figures at Target. I don't know what came over me. Anything happen while I was gone?

I do feel sad when I leave Target without buying any new SW figures...but that is a whole other discussion.

I feel you, VDC. I have been to target several times to try and find more snowtroopers, a power droid, and a vader but, alas, all of my trips have been in vain.
