All this talk of Toy Fair and lists and whatnot has got me in a Star Wars sort of mood. I'll admit I haven't been on a Star Wars kick in about three years, maybe more. Sure I always love to talk Star Wars but lately I find myself counting the days till that big AT-AT shows up in stores and I seem to spend a little longer in the Star Wars section of the toy aisle.
So you might be seeing a little more Star Wars focus in some posts here and there. What better way to start than with my Vintage Die Cast Millennium Falcon. Before I start I have to say I love this toy, probably one of my top ten Star Wars toys that I have owned. Plus it was lost for the longest time.
I don't know if you remember the story of how I got my Vintage Mego Spock back, I'll wait while you catch up. Back? Well, you guessed it, that second item to fall from that bag was none other than my long lost Falcon. I had thought about this toy for years, where did it go too, I had no clue. The last time I remember playing with it was in the back yard on a Summer's day and I had just lost a BB inside of it. Who knows why I was playing with this and a BB, but it got stuck inside through one of the landing gear bays. I remember being frustrated that I couldn't shake the thing out.
When this thing fell from the bag it still had the freaking BB in it! I did get it out later, seemed all too easy now.
It's a little more beat up and not as minty fresh, but I think that adds to the Falcon's story. I mean this thing has seen some adventures.
Man that is a thing of beauty, isn't it. I wonder how much lead I ingested from all the paint that is missing, ah who cares I still had fun with this thing.
