“Well, yeah. Boys and their toys. I have gathered this collection along the way, a long time ago in a galaxy far away, mostly because my 7-year-older brother caught me on to it. He was the right age when the first Star Wars-movie was released in the late 70s. Which obviously was accompanied with that big wave of merchandise.
I’m not a big fan of the latest blasphemous Disney-façade and also Director Lucas has proven himself to be a dick, but these original characters and crafts bring up a lot of nostalgia. I hope it’ll do the same for you…
If you can name each vessle, droid, person and soldier on display here, you could win a prize! I’ve organised the display here at Volkshotel in a way to show you several scenes taken from”Star Wars”, “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi”.
Love. San Proper.”
