Yoda for me, one of my favourites as a kid, and still is. Maybe a certain TV show has also influenced his popularity this year?
Agreed, I reckon it was quite a big influencer on the final rounds this year.

Re: Forum Figure of the Year 2020 - THE FINAL

Jawa was the first figure I stole as a child (from a mates collection) so it is very dear to my heart! How many more did you steal ? :lol: Yoda for me 8) Fairly sure my death star commander and at least one of my stormtroopers came from the same source! Jawa was the one that was always hard to get ...

Never liked Leia - her face is too masculine on this figure. Jawa is a brilliant figure with a perfect name match.

Re: SPOILERS THREAD-The Rise of Skywalker-SPOILERS THREAD

I really dislike all modern super-hero films but I liked ep 9. Can't see the connection with super-heros myself. I think ep 9 hit my nostalgia buttons nicely, especially the appearance of Wedge

Re: Episode 9 for those of us who hated TLJ

I thought it was good. A few bits I didn't love but then I can say that about ALL the films I've ever watched, incl the original trilogy. I don't pretend to be a film critic in my spare time but I'm old enough to know what I like and what I find entertaining. My simple brain tries not to over-analys...

OH MY GOD !!!!

I loved that cockpit game, spent my pocket money on it when we lived in Skegness when I was a young un 8)

Thanks for sharing :D
Yep, it's a classic and playability surprisingly good for its age (circus 1983 I think)

Original Star Wars cockpit arcade spotted in Bristol....

Hi. I took my daughter to 'Barcade' in Bristol, near Millenium Sq. It's a pop up vintage arcade open until Feb. £6 per hour or £5 for kids - all inclusive. The reason I'm posting this is because it has the original SW cockpit game, amongst others! Also has ROTJ, Turtles, Indiana Jones, SF2 and more....

Re: Full TROS Trailer and Tickets Tomorrow!

I haven't had quite as much of an issue with recent films as some members and I have tried to give the films the benefit of the doubt, albeit I think they are fairly weak. To me this trailer was a little underwhelming compared to some which have been before, but that may not be a bad thing in terms...

Re: Celebration 2007

Just been through some old photos and found these from 2007. I think the owner of this stand was from the US or Canada but can't be sure. As you can see the selection was huge and there was a lovely three pack. Hard to see price stickers of MOCs. Just thought people might find the pictures interest...
