Vintage Star Wars Figures: How I Rediscovered My Old Toys
My blog, Looking Away to the Horizon, tends to focus more on the personal side of Star Wars. The majority of my articles deal with my Star Wars Room, what a certain part of the movies mean to me, and how Star Wars has become a positive influence in my family. Basically what Star Wars means to me as an adult fan. Oddly enough, my two previous guest posts for Coffee With Kenobi were more historical examinations of vintage items that helped to explain where George Lucas was coming from when he set out to create our favourite saga. In the spirit of my own blog, I would like to explore something much more personal to me, namely, why it took me nearly twenty years to find a place in my fandom for vintage Star Wars toys.
Also, I’m getting a little tired of non-news and rumours clogging up my Twitter feed. What do I do when it feels like being a Star Wars fan is becoming work? I talk about toys.
