Apple. Tree. Close proximity fall. - Star Wars Christmas, vintage-style!

Pretty sure I have a picture of me just like this 30 years ago, with the same present. Vintage Star Wars toys rock!

Grandma&Grandpa bought this one, along with a few figs. Of course, Santa brought some more SW figs and related gear too.

So far I think he has this Imperial Tie Fighter (above), Vader, Luke (Snowspeeder pilot version), Yoda, Darth Maul, Obi Wan (ep III-ish), a Clone Trooper (I could *swear* I told them Sandtrooper - ah well), C-3PO and R2.

Pretty sweet loot! Err.... I mean, for my son, that is. ;^]

Spandex isn't for everyone.


Look, I love TRON as much as the next guy; well, maybe not as much as this guy; but c'mon now.

If you ever see me looking like that, and it's NOT Halloween... wait, scratch that... including Halloween, puh-leeeeze derez me!

Thank you, oh merciful MCP!

I don't feel too bad making that request, because I hope that this dude doesn't really take any of this too seriously. I mean he has to know that donning that outfit is gonna get some attention, both good and bad. And I have a feeling he loves the attention. Thus, it's alllllll goooooood.

And honestly I'm not saying it's really bad. OK, it's pretty bad, but still, it's a free country. Dude can wear anything he wants. And ya sure can't knock his spirit. Go TRON-dude!

Sure, I did "dress up" as Darth Vader this year, but it was Halloween, and it involved absolutely no spandex. I save my zebra-striped pants for '80s-themed parties. Hmmnnn... maybe I do look like this on occasion. Oh dear! Oh deaaaaarh!!!!!

Anyway, I know he's been popping-up all over teh interwebz, so I tried not to simply jump on the bandwagon, but I just couldn't help it.

Weirdest part in all of this: What's with the bag? Apparently you still have to pack your own lunch in a virtual world of 1s and 0s. Who would've thunk it. Then again ya never can tell who you might run into in the cafeteria, right?
