Title: Well loved toys.
Post by: B-Lister on March 12, 2015, 09:33:30 pm
I came across a vintage Luke Skywalker recently, that I just couldn't consign to the junk heap. There is everything wrong with this figure as it is possible to have. Chewed up, heavy paint loss, limbs looser than imaginable.

He's been through the wringer, and yet, he has survived all these years. He was somebody's FAVORITE toy once. He doesn't deserve the scrapheap. So I keep him and hope in some small way that the joy he brought so long ago can, in some small way make me just a little happier.

Nice one Bliss.

I was with my daughter at the dentist the other day and while we were waiting she began to play with a vintage Leo TMNT figure that was in a box of kids stuff. She took to him immediately and I wondered how many kids had played with this figure over the years?

I'll post a pic of that Luke sometime.
