My Favorite Movies And Toys As A Kid

Growing up, my favorite movie was "Star Wars," well the whole series including "Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi," and more. Who am I trying to fool, they are still my number one flicks. I love them all, even the prequels.

Of course, since the Star Wars movies are my favorite it just makes sense that they were my number one pick for toys. I had pretty much all the action figures and so much more. Honestly, I was a big fan of everything Star Wars.

Fans And Collectors Love Star Wars Merchandise

Star Wars merchandise is more than just toys. For big-time fans, it is a way of life. They are always on the lookout for something unique and unusual. Collectibles, especially, the original stuff released are very valuable. Collectors will set up huge displays in their homes to show off their action figures and more.

Star Wars toys are such a huge deal a museum in Wisconsin has opened an exhibit to feature them. The host is Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

According to,

"Nostalgia Awakens is an exhibit featuring EVERY action figure toy made by Kenner from 1978-1985 from the beloved original Trilogy (Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi)."

"Every piece is original and 100% complete with no missing pieces; no reproductions."

"Toys just like you remember them when you first got them as a kid.​"
