LOL, no. Our living room has unintentionally wound up somewhat Star Wars themed, though. When the toy stores started churning out the 18" “Big Figures” I wanted a Stormtrooper and a Darth Vader, which I bought and placed at either end of my DVD shelves, like bookends. And that should’ve been that.
But then I got a Darth Vader mug for Father’s Day, then @MazzyStar bought herself one of those £120 Bluetooth-controlled BB-8 toys which run around the floor (despite her having no prior interest in Star Wars whatsoever; she just liked the droid), and then we bought each other Stormtrooper and BB-8 mugs from the Disney shop because they were on sale, and we put all these things out on display with the Big Figures. And that should’ve been that.
But then I bought a Captain Phasma Big Figure, and followed that by buying a Kylo Ren Big Figure, because three Big Figures looked odd. Then we saw an R2-D2 plush toy and a BB-8 plush toy in Sainsbury’s, both reduced from a typically Disney £30 each to a fantastic £8 each, and we just thought it’d be rude not to get them at that price. So we did, and we use them as extra cushions on the sofa. And that should’ve been that.
But then Rogue One came out, and it was magnificent, so I had to get two more Big Figures: K-2SO and a Deathtrooper. And @MazzyStar decided we needed to complement the droid cushions with BB-8 lightshades.
And - so far - that has been that.
The Stormtrooper Kickers were a Christmas present but as yet I’ve been too scared to wear them since they’re so white. Maybe now the weather’s improving I’ll give them a test-drive. The Rogue One t-shirt was a sale item in Tesco, a fiver I think it was.
Well I’ve still got the Star Wars toys I used to play with from 1977-1983, all well used but also well loved and fairly well looked after, boxed up in the loft. Looking at eBay, the value of some of those items seems to differ wildly depending on the condition and the seller but I reckon a few of my pieces might be worth a couple of bob to someone without any of it being worth serious money. Not that I’d flog it anyway though (shy of a ridiculous offer of course). If I had more room I’d be tempted to get it out and display it somewhere.
