Star Wars Toys!!!

There's a pretty awesome feeling that I get when I think or talk about Star Wars. I guess I do this a little too much because I'm beginning to be known as "that Star Wars girl" amongst my friends and collogues.
Now don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad thing. Not by a long shot.
This is a great thing! Do you want to know why?


Yes, people have started to give me their old Star Wars toys and that, my friend, is AWESOME!!
It all started a few weeks ago when a friend of mine was moving and found his old vintage figures from the early '80s! When he brought them into work for me the following day, I was beyond exstatic!
I've never owned any Star Wars toys before except for a brief brush with a Qui-Gon and Maul Lego set before my then boyfriend stole them from me, so this was a rare treat indeed!
(That's my cat in the background f some of these, and yes, that is Mount Doom at the bottom of the painting. But that's a story for another day)
Check them out!

Look at my kick-ass Driods! R2D2 is my favorite, but the GNK Droid was more than I could ever expect! I just love how they both look like walking garbage cans :D

How about Obi-Wan using the Force to chase off the Tuscan Raider (or Tucan Raider as my SW challanged boyfriend likes to call them)

I sense something; a presence I've not felt since...

Your powers are weak, old man.
You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
(Yay! Lightsaber chopsticks! And yes, I know Obi-Wan's should be blue, but I don't have those ones...yet)

This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of Kenobi, it will soon see the end of the Rebellion

Wookie/Hammer Head High Five!!
I sort of want to make a hammer-time reference, but I will refrain.

When the Carbonite plan didn't work, Jabba settled for just Han Solo's head on a platter.
yup, that's all of him that we could find.

So after that epic batch of toys, another collogue of mine brought this beauty in for me from his own personal collection!!!

YAY his eyes light up!!!

Now since I was in such a SW toys head space, I heading over to the Silver Snail on the weekend. And what did I find? The Deal of a Century!!

The Ceremonial Princess Leia figure that I've always eyed longingly from a far, marked down from $70 to $10!!!!!! WOOHOO!!

Check out that awesome face sculpt! Isn't she lovely?

Incase you didn't know (because most people don't) I have a bit of an obsession about Barbie and similar type dolls. So when I first found out there were SW dolls out there I wanted them all!
Especially Princess Leia, but also Queen Amidala.
Look what I found for $8!!!

I've never really been a fan of her Escape from Naboo outfit, but I must say that the detailing that went into this doll makes me have an entirely new respect for this costume. It even has the Naboo symbol emblazoned around the bottom of them hem! Don't even get me started on how much I love the headdress and face paint!
*Swoon* I love this doll 

Plus, isn't it nice to finally see Mother and Daughter together at last? I think so.

So thank you to all my friends for putting up and encouraging my dorky obsession!
You guys rock!!
