    Jedi James selected his own lightsaber yesterday. I bought two, an Obi Wan TPM and a Skywalker ANH, and let him choose...

    [image=http://www.hostdub.com/albums/g60racer/May_2005_017.sized.jpg]

    He immediately started swinging it around and making "mmmmmmmmm" noises!!! Pretty cool considering he's 17 months old. :) Guess he's seen his daddy do it enough to know...

    The Obi Wan TPM is going to my 4yo nephew, who recently watched ANH for the first time (at my house, of course) and fell in love with Star Wars! Future 501st member there, he wants to be Darth Vader -- "I want a black suit and a big space ship just like him! hooo -khoooo, hoooo- khoooo (imitates Vader breathing).

    We *Have* to get Ewan and James to fight together. Although they'd have the same lightsaber! We let both kids pick out one of the non-battery ones at Target a short time back. We figured they could not hurt each other as much as the noisey ones. He wanted that one..wonder why ;)

    Despite what the packaging said, he is holding an Anakin Ep.3 saber.

    Close but not quite ANH version.

    I stand corrected. The circuit board in place of the bubble strip, two red buttons, and embossed strip around the Graflex clamp, in addition to the incorrectly implied machined bulb holder ears (instead of implied stamped ears) are giveaways. :)

    Not sure how to classify the belt clip, doesn't match either the ROTS, ANH, or ESB versions.

    The cutest pictures of the cutest kids!!

    For some reason I got the post wrong about Jedi James' saber...by the time I posted I thought he had the Obi-wan one...that's the one Ewan has...and Gavin picked out his as well...he picked the Qui-Gon one-only with a blue blade.
    But still...we should get the young Padawans together for saber class ;)
    We have enough Younglings now to start our own clan...

    Figured this would be the best place to post this...

    My Special Ed classroom has a huge window that looks out over the Kindergarten playground. And my computer desk and computer sit so that I can look out while doing reports. Well, today I heard one of the "younglings" screaming "I'm Anakin! I'm Anakin!" at the top of his voice. When I looked up, he had a cone (a smaller version of the red/orange ones you see sitting on the ground to direct traffic) over his right hand and upper arm with a small semi-straight tree branch that he had stuck into it as a lightsaber. He was running around making saber noises and telling people that he was Anakin Skywalker and the cone was his "Force hand". I was just dying laughing.

    Ok, it's settled... We HAVE to make that into a T-Shirt! :) Let me talk around and get a design going.. I know that you guys have the contacts to get them done. Hmmm maybe in time for the Unofficial Disneyland Day? And...do we need it slightly "scorched" too?

    :)

    Actually, there is going to be a t-shirt you can buy for the Disneyland Day on June 25th. But the other one would be fun for Comic-Con, especially if a lot of us wore it on the same day. [face_laugh]
