My goto action figure was always Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing gear.

Unlike the my other Luke Skywalker who suffered from lightsaber hand, LSXWFP’s right hand had the best grip.

Just the right size for gripping onto my Tonka Crane or the cord for the blinds (I usually played Star Wars with mixed media).

Just thought I’d share.

P.S. In my search for pics for this post I found http://ratherchildish.wordpress.com. It’s chock full of glamour shots of action figures in cool lighting. Pretty sweet.

    We used to use GI Joe’s Kung Fu grip to slide down the phone lines to the neighbor’s houses…and to carry the heads of Barbie if some girls in the neighborhood were pissing us off. “BRING US THE HEAD OF A MATTEL!”

    What’s with the mismatched boot?

    Is it just me or do those look like wax figures? I have a clear picture of Luke on the cord to the blinds.

    That link is awesome. My husband has enough opened action figures to create his very own Robot Chicken franchise… Srsly. I might hafta get out the good camera and see what kind of geekery I can get into…

    The orange flightsuits made this look. The landspeeder was a must, though.

    I saw this on a license plate just this morning: “TH4SBWU”. Didn’t have my camera though.

    Have you ever gone to Plaid Stallions? (http://plaidstallions.blogspot.com/) I love that site. Great pics and catalog pages of toys and clothing from way back when. I always laugh when I go to that site.🙂
