THE FASTEST HUNK OF JUNK
When the crush of products and merchandise for The Force Awakens hits, it’s going to be very hard for me to resist whatever new version of the Millennium Falcon Kenner Toys produces. Why? Because, as cool as the Death Star play set was, the Falcon was that much more cool. I held that toy so often as a kid, I have sense memory of it. I can still feel it in my hands.
Do I still have mine? Yes, I do. Has it seen better days? It absolutely has. Do I hope some day to restore it? Yes, friends, some day SOON.
But, until then, I have the memory of the Coolest. Toy. Ever.
