    Pre-special edition era for me. I started off with the 1995 VHS box set, along with Kenner's 1995 Power of the Force line of action figure line.

    I was 9 when TPM came out, and it was the first SW movie I saw in theater, so I picked the 1997-2007 era. I have a very great, vivid memory of seeing TPM as we saw it in the brand new hugeeee movie theater that was built 20 miles away from where we lived. I was already a fan, having watched the OT and I stole all of my older brother's toys. But it was an unforgettable experience. I think it definitely contributes to my appreciative nature with the prequels.

    I did almost the same thing with the RotJ novel. But I somehow forced myself to stop reading at the end of the Dagobah scene and wait to see the movie. That was the only one of the OT I saw unspoiled; I read the books first for SW and ESB.

    It was a shocker. I looked up from the page, stunned. Then looked again to make sure I read it right.
