Yep I remember him being hard to get. A friend and I used to collect the figures and we usually got the same figure on the same day but Klaatu escaped us. Then one day he went to the toyshop on his own (think I was sick) and he found Klaatu - shop only got 1 (or had only 1 left by the time he got there)
Damn I hated him that day..

so can you imagine how cool it was to get an at-at at the age of 22 ( the inner child almost pissed myself)
Same here mate getting the At At at last was the best day and I only paid £30 for it and got a boxed snowspeeder with it as well!!

oh happy days :D :D

i never liked the at at or falcon really , i think it was because i only had the small bedroom and they seemed to take over,i prefered the snowspeeder,though i didnt even know it had 2 seats for months doh

I've been lucky over the years. Girlfriends have been usually very supportive, or at least not obstructive.

I've yet to hear one say 'It's me or the collection' :lol:
