Star Wars Gloriole

vintage kenner star wars display

I'm working on a Star Wars section for the site (very slowly) and this picture kind of gave me goosebumps, i remember seeing this display in Eaton's when I was 7. I hadn't seen Star Wars or really heard of it but I was so drawn to these plastic men I bought one right out. I guess technically my mom bought it. I even remember how these things smelled when you opened them, chemical goodness.....

neato. That's going to be a sweet section.

For Xmas last year a friend gave me three figures that his mom bought him back in the ROTJ day (two 'background' characters and a vinyl-caped Vader).

The best part is the marked-down sales stickers from CVS.

I remember the first two figures my Mom bought me, Stormie and threepio...still have them too! And yes, that smell, it is literally my favorite smell on earth, a close second being the smell of campfire. I still sniff some of my vintage that are in their Kenner baggies and boy what memories that smell brings back!
