It's the Falcon for me the first and only ship I ever owned. One Xmas after my mum had a local bingo win a few weeks before. I'll never forget it waking up on Xmas day a boxed millennium Falcon with 7 figures!

Slave 1, it was the only large ship I got brand new. I picked up a lot of stuff later as people sold it off in about 1984-85, I remember buying a whole box of stuff from a lad near me for £20 including a Falcon, etc.

I must have played with it for hours, it looked cool, and it had Boba Fett who was a great imaginative figure (he had rockets, arm launchers, a flamethrower, etc). It also had the carbonite han for added coolness. It is no surprise I bought it as my first vintage ship! Just hoping to pick up a box now.

so much to choose from,

Pop-up r2 and boba were the figures i played with the most.

I really liked the jabba playset especially the detail of rats and bones inside the throne.

I had a brief hiatus from collecting and the forum while we had a child and now catching up on a lot of SWFUK posts.

My most nostalgic has got to be the Rebel Transport ship, it's one of only two from my childhood collection I remember being given. My Dad and I were in Peter Jones in Wickford and I grabbed it off the shelf moments before another boy could reach it, I remember he cried :(

The only other one I remember receiving was the Ewok Village and my Gran saying how expensive it was for a pile of plastic!

Well my first ever star wars figure was R2 D2 Pali 12 back. My first ever vehicle was Darths TIE Fighter. Happy memories. I have now since got a loose but near mint R2 and a boxed complete Darths TIE but the box is second version sadly.
