    Thumbs up Happy 26th to the Spectacular Film that started it all!

    So long ago, but the genuine undeniable quality of Star Wars Episode IV is evidenced by its staying power after all these years. Its timeless and universal tale remains just as fresh today as it was to audiences 26 years ago.

    I was reminded of this date this morning while watching CBS Sunday Morning. Not just a casual mention, but they actually spent a couple of minutes running through the old films with just a brief mention of the new ones to show that it's still going. Complete with great old footgage of 1976 audiences standing in line.

    I also realized that 26 years ago, I was the exact age as my own son is now. Man, does that make me feel old.

    26 years? Wow, that's really long ago. Put your self in your shoes as a youngster seeing ANH and having your parents talking about this great movie they loved from 26 years prior. Not too many movies from 1951 would have interested me. ANH has become a timeless classic.

    Ahh, I remember the first time I saw Star Wars..........wait, no I don't, that was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

    Happy 26th Birthday to you, and Happy 38th birthday to me as of May 23rd. I liked having my birthday the same month that a Star Wars film came out! It meant that I was always going to be able to see it at least once as a present!

    Maybe one of you guys knows, but did the Star Wars novelization come out the Christmas prior to the film's release? I remember getting it for Christmas, but I'm also pretty sure that it was the very first Star Wars thing I ever got.

    That brings up a good question Stillakid, what was the first thing SW that you got as a kid. I'll have to ask my parents for help on that one. I remember having a book, a couple figures and a small dicast ship pretty early on but I don't know what I got first.
