    Re: The "Thirty Years of Star Wars" Thread!

    Sure thing. Let's start with the questions.

    1. favorite Star Wars film? -- The Empire Strikes Back
    2. least favorite Star Wars film? -- Attack of the Clones
    3. favorite main character? -- Boba Fett
    4. favorite minor character? -- Aayla Secura
    5. favorite species? -- Twi'leks
    6. how young are you? -- 30 years

    That Darth Vader Balloon was sweet. Did you know that German nutrcracker maker Steinbach made a Darth Vader nutcracker? Actually they have made 2. The first one was a limited edition via FAO Schwartz in 1998. In 2005 Steinbach started a Star Wars series with a new Darth Vader and a Yoda in 2006. Here is the 1998 FAO Schwartz Vader, the most prized item in my Star Wars collection.



    On another note, there is one other character who has made it to nutcrackerdom, Darth Maul. Apparantly only 6 were made, and it never went into production. One of these is at the Nutcracker House in Leavenworth, WA. I have been to that museum and it is awesome.

    If anyone is interested, I'll post my entire collection of Star Wars stuff here. (well pictures at least).

    Hey are some of those the Sideshow 12 inch figures? What do you think of them. I've only collected a few 12 inch figures myself, but I do not have any of Sideshows yet. I have the exclusive Plo Koon on order. I like your displays, especially the backgrounds. Someday I hope to get enclosed glass shelves and to set up an awesome display. I'm looking forward to the rest.
