I was 5 years old when Star Wars first opened in theaters in 1977. I did not see it until the following year, it was still in theaters. This was pre-home video days mind you. One day in Kindergarten we had 'show and tell' and this kid brought in the Landspeeder along with figures of Luke, Ben, C-3PO, and R2-D2. That was cool but the COOLEST part was that the hood on the Landspeeder opened. Back in those days toy cars were huge and if you had one where the hood opened that was your favorite car. But this was a SPACE CAR! With JET ENGINES! Hidden spring wheels so it 'floated' a bit. Needless to say I lost my little mind and pestered my Mom to take me not only to see this movie but also get these cool toys.... The rest is history. That Christmas I got the Millenium Falcon and that had to rank as my favorite toy. I really modified that thing, we had a pool and the Falcon crashed onto the water planet many, many times!
