    And then, while piloting the family TIE Fighter, Dad Vader answers an ages-old question...

    I am presently visiting family in Norfolk, and I found this prime example of a 1st Gen PreRunner parked right near my aunt and uncle's house!

    Believe it or not, one of my favorite songs to absolutely crank in my Tacoma is Werewolves of London.

    @Plain Jane Taco

    This is one of two Han Solo action figures I had.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    As I said in a recent post, the Millennium Falcon had been at the top of my list for my 8th birthday. Due to the fact that we'd moved recently, my parents hadn't had the time to get me one. My mom took me to the Toys "R" Us, quite possibly on my birthday, to pick out the one I wanted. My cousin, who owns the LEGO sets I just posted pics of, had the Micro Machines version. That's the same one that asshole neighborhood kid had, and that's the one I wanted. However, I discovered a much larger version of the most famous YT-1300 freighter in galaxy at Toy "R" Us, one compatible with the Han Solo action figure seen above. That's the one my mom bought me, and I was beyond happy!

    99.9% sure this is the Falcon I had as a kid...

    [​IMG]

    A better picture. This particular one is going for like $230 on Fleabay. Pretty sure my parents paid less than $100 for it back in 1997...

    Hello there, Like Ninja...

    From what I'm reading, this toy was in production since at least 1995, but I got mine for my 8th birthday in 1997...

    The Falcon and the Landspeeder were easily my two favorite vehicles in the whole Trilogy!

    And then I also got this smaller-scale replica of Vader's TIE fighter that same year (though I don't think it was for my birthday). They had a bunch of them on the shelf at whatever store we went to, I thought the realistic battle damage was pretty cool, and pointed this out to my mom. My mom had a severe case of cerebral flatulence, thought the damage was not supposed to be there, and told me to find an "undamaged" one. It took a little while to convince my mom that this was how the toy was supposed to look, and she ended up buying me the damn thing...

    Here are some pictures of me on my 8th birthday, almost 21 years ago (Holy shit! I'm old!), opening presents...

    Actually, in this photo I'm reading a truck magazine. I can't tell which magazine this was (knowing me, probably Petersen's 4-wheel & Off-Road), but there's one thing I literally just noticed...

    That appears to be an ad for a Toyota Tacoma on the back!

    And then that is definitely one of the Star Wars toys I'm unwrapping in this picture...
    22067_1317812542631_894794_n_bd1cd858d41426c6f807dc113e25c81c876aadfd.jpg

    I also got a 1:18 scale model Ferrari for my 8th birthday. I forget what model it was; But I know it was the classic red, it had a removable roof panel, and it looked exactly like the one in the picture below (swiped from the Interweb)...

    [​IMG]

    I loved cars, and I now had a growing love of Star Wars. I had a Han Solo action figure, a model Ferrari, and one hell of an imagination...

    FUN FACT: I decided to put Han behind the wheel of my new Ferrari, and to my surprise, he actually fit! Doubt even a Ferrari can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs though...

    My bedroom at our old house in North Wales, PA (technically Montgomeryville). This was one of 4 bedrooms. The house was built in 1990, and my parents bought it brand new after the original buyers backed out of the deal. We lived there until 1996, which is about the time this photo was taken (presumably by my mom)...

    @Iamraiderpower

    Me at about 2 years old (Sometime in 1991) , also at the house in North Wales...

    Me in the kitchen of the same house, also in 1991...

    22067_1317764261424_7315617_n_207d764713cc43288fcb08ccd4925d71789c1737.jpg

    Even by 1990 standards, that kitchen was HIDEOUS. However, the house was already finished by the time my parents decided to buy it. The original would-be purchasers suddenly backed out after the builder (David Cutler Group; Local builder in my area; Still in business!) had pocketed about $20,000 of their money. As such, they sold this brand new house to my parents for $20K below original value!

    Christmas 1992 (Same house; I think it was 1992). That third stocking from right above the fireplace (With Santa's face on it) is mine...

    I still have that stocking and use it every year!

    Also sometime in 1992, in that same family room...

    Back then I loved playing with Duplo blocks...

    Now I've upgraded to LEGO!

    Is your license expired? And more importantly, have you ever had any problems dealing with police in the past?
