    Your First Vintage Figure???

    Based on the thread by lynnferd named "Your First Figure" at the old SSG boards:
    http://209.197.112.151/thread.html?d...ID=15&PID=4862
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From Luke Skywalker to Darth Vader, From Fx-7 to Lando, From Leia Boushh to Amanaman, Do you remember your first Star Wars figure that you got? Can you remember your first figure from all the movie lines(Aka ANH,ESB,ROTJ,POTF (and if you collect Ewoks and Droids))?

    If so please tell

    Alas, I cannot participate in this thread, since my "firsts" are the same as in the old thread. Wait; I just did! Hooray!

    But just to remind, Cloth Caped Jawa was my first ever SW toy.

    I was five and my parents let me pick out my own toy for the first time ever. I picked Artoo, cuz I thought he was cute. My brother picked Chewbacca. This was 1978, when the toys first hit the shelves.

    The first Obi-wan, the one with the vinyl cape from ANH. Which is interesting, since it came out when I was about 1. Someone in my family was thinking ahead.

    Would have been Darth Vader and Emperors Royal Guard around 1984 / 1985, I remember calling them the Red and Black Knight at the time, what a dummy!!!
    First POTF was a Short Saber in Long Tray Darth Vader (UK version)....

    Hey, that's not so bad. I remember pretending Artoo was a two legged cannon!

    Upside down Power Droids made cool Jawa hover-type vehicles, using the legs as the controls.
