Pretty much the whole first half hour. Vader and Stormtroopers entering the Tantive, Artoo and the Jawas, Luke with Owen, Beru and the Droid sale, Sandpeople etc etc.
Collecting SW since 1980.

Me too, to this day I can never understand why these guys didn't come out as figures.

Most of the first third of A New Hope, especially the opening scenes showing R2, C-3po and Leia.
Then Luke, Ben and the Droids on Tatooine, the Canteena, plus the rescue of Leia and the Garbage compactor.
Those seem to stand out for me.

Droid sale and the suns setting on Tatooine are the two that really make me think of being little and being at my Grandparents, the scene I remember playing out most as a kid was the speeder chase through Endor, so that definitely has a similar affect on me when I see it, but for a different reason.

Jawas blasting R2 and Aunt Beru calling out "Luke ... Lu-ook"

Triggers some sort of warm and fuzzy feeling :)

Well guys, I guess the 'feeling' (not to be mixed up with the 'force' :D ) started the first time I saw the Falcon in a hangar bay on Tatooine. It literally meant the beginning of some good Star Wars action to me. And hey, the Falcon didn't look to me as a piece of junk :lol:

I remember when panicking as a child when Luke was hanging from Cloud City at the end of Empire, I was worried he was going to fall :-)

Mine has always been the conference table on the Death Star. For some reason I remember feeling that I was sat at that table feeling scared and listening in as Vader force strangled Motti. I think it's because the screen in our Odeon was so huge to a small child such as I in those days.

Luke standing watching the 2setting suns - or are they rising?- outside the Lars homestead. The music that plays at that point is the music that my childhood Star Wars adventures were played out to, in my head of course, and even when I was on Endor (in the forest near my house), or on Hoth (when it snowed) - setting didn't matter to me, just loved that music and scene.:D

The 'I love you'...'I know' bit.....still gets me now as it did back then.

Let's be honest....is there at guy who didn't wish he could pull that off?

The twin suns , when the music ramps up in a new hope

When luke meets yoda from ESB and yoda is nicking his stuff 'mine , or i will help you not' then starts bashing R2 with his walking stick

and jedi its the rancor scene for all the wrong reasons , i remember having terrifying nightmares about that thing
I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
S-O-D-A, soda

I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said "yoda"
Y-O-D-A, Yoda
yo yo yo yoda

I love the scene in ANH where Ben and Luke are on the cliff over looking Mos Eisley I'm the distance.

Also the super star destroyer crashing into the death star...hence it's my avatar! 8)
martial arts, death, killing stuff......crazy fucking ninja.
