The mid-90s. My brother and I were huge collectors of the Power of the Force toy line. We would have our grandma take us to stores at opening to see any new ones that came out. We'd constantly buy those old toy magazines that showed how much each is worth and would keep meticulous track of our collection. Then obviously the re-releases were a big thing, even though we had been fans prior to their release and had owned and watched the OT on VHS before that. I remember sitting in my room at a very young age and trying to actually use the force to lift things and bring things to me. I would watch SW movies and would simultaneously use these hobby type wood sets not for their intended use but to build mock ups of Star Destroyers as best as I could. Shadows of the Empire (the game, book, toys, soundtrack) came out when I was 10 and was also hugely popular, so that was something I had immersed myself in as well, which also got me into anything Bounty Hunter related. Which then got me into some of the expanded universe books, although I wasn't nearly as into them as others had been. Actually, I'm more into them now than I was when they were first produced. Anyways, that was my childhood. Then as I got into middle school TPM became all the rage, so my brother and I sort of turned to that as our new focus for a while. I guess that about sums up which era I grew up in, if we're being specific about it. When AOTC came out I was already in high school, so I guess that's the first SW era outside of my growing up.
