These retrospectives, by Oliver Harper, are very informative and a “Must Watch” for any fan of the original trilogy. He delves into pre production, filming, merchandising, games, music, and much more. It’s an extremely entertaining watch, or even re-watch. Oliver is a talented editor, plus he is easy to listen to. If you haven’t heard of these before, you’re welcome. If you have, give them a another view… this is my 3rd or 4th time on each.
I found these guys yesterday, at a local shop. The price tag for the lot was a bit large until I saw that Brown Snake and cane of Yoda’s. He also has “Pac-Man” eyes. That was the deal maker for me. I was able to get the set for 10% less than marked. There are twenty-one figures, and many of those are ones that I have already. I’ll be posting those on Etsy and looking for a Jedi Knight Luke [loose / incomplete] since I now have all three of his accessories.
As for the Yoda, I’ll definitely be parting with that one. It will pay for the purchase, plus it isn’t the one I had when I was a kid. The one I grew up with was the orange snake common version and that’s the one that I would rather have again.
Gamorrean Guards! I love these guys. I’ve had a few in my shop to sell over these past few years, but I NEVER had any when I would 13. I have no idea as to why. They have some great character. While they are not as screen accurate as their more modern Hasbro cousins, they have a quaint charm all their own.
