    As a kid in Scotlamnd in the early 1980s, the 'Star Wars' product I received was almost always given to me as Christmas gifts, so hard to come by in my area were they.
    1980 saw me receive the TESB 'Yoda' puppet and 'ANH=STAR WARS' Tie Fighter. 1982 brought with it a tauntaun, Dengar and a 'Palitoy' (kenner's UK distributor) blaster. 1983 saw me be given the Rancor (and a Gremlins three pack, but I had to mention that!)
    I could go on and on and bore you all, but I'm keen to hear your memories, if you are willing to share. Pull up a chair, have some Yoda-green eggnog and tell us all about it.

    Here's some of my SW Christmas memories:

    Christmas 1981- I got the Kenner Millennium Falcon, my brother the snowspeeder, and I also remember getting one of those Hoth playsets with some figures that was from a department store's Christmas catalog. When I was playing with it with my sister, she came up the ingenious idea to use a white blanket to simulate the surface of the planet Hoth as an add-on for it.

    Christmas 1983- I got a bunch of stuff from Return of the Jedi this Christmas, like the Ewok village, Jabba the Hutt, the Y-Wing fighter, and a TIE Fighter. My sister got a Barbie penthouse playset for Christmas, and I remember using the Y-wing fighter to buzz around it when she was playing with it.

    Magic! Here in Glasgow, Scotland, the department store 'Lewis's' was a Mecca for 'Star Wars' toys and held everything one wished for from Santa in one hall-sized floor. It was incredible! Merry Christmas Star Wars fans and may the force be with you!

    My first memory of receiving Star Wars for Christmas was back in 1999. I was 6 years old at the time. I remember receiving a large assortment of figures and this cool R2-D2 that transformed into a stationary unit. I have been collection Star Wars stuff since that moment.

    The first Star Wars gift was given to me when I was nine. It was an action figure of C3po of all things. Then I got a tin box with four action figures.
    The latest gift was a Star Wars comic book. ANH Infinities.
