Thread: Weekly review?

  1. #1

    Weekly review?

    I've been kicking this idea around for a while, but what would guys think about a weekly review of vintage toys? This is an idea I've seen on other sites and thought it might give a much needed kick to this forum. My idea for here would be to list a vintage figure, vehicle, playset, or accessory each week and let people talk about it. I'm not thinking of just a plain review, but stories from childhood, how you got the item, or any other info you wish to share. If folks are interested I'll start with Luke Skywalker on 12/19/04.

    If you wanted, you could start a new thread for each figure over in the "reviews" section. One a week, or maybe even one every two weeks sounds cool.

    sounds good. However I really can't remember when I got many of my vintage toys.

    I think its a good idea.

    PF, I think it would be better here, because we will be discussing other aspects of the figure, such as memories and schtuff. But, where ever it goes, I will be part of it.

    Yes, exactly. So in that respect "review" might not be the right to use. Maybe a focused discussion that involves reviews, stories, memories, and other thoughts is more accurate, but that's to big of a mouth full.

    My line of thought was more the memorable ones. Like I can tell you I got my Ben and X-Wing Luke for Xmas of '83, that's not too memorable. Yoda, my first SW figure was a memorable one. Or maybe you found a rare figure at a garage sale for 50 or had to work really hard to track down a mint 12 back Stormtrooper. Its what you want to share.

    I can recall something "interesting" about at least these figures, so this would be a worthwhile thread:

    Jawa
    Walrusman
    Boba Fett
    Wicket W. Warrick
    Barada (and a couple more carded POTF ones)
    Lando Calrissian
    Luke X-Wing
    Yoda

    And I know where I got these figures, too:
    R2-D2
    Rebel Commando
    Rebel Soldier
    Cloud Car Pilot
    Lando General
    Rancor Keeper

    Fun!

    It does sound like fun.
    At least 2/3 of my childhood involves Star Wars, so I have plenty of memories to share.
