A Star Wars Halloween

I first saw the movie Star Wars in 1977 when I was 10 years old. I instantly fell in love with it and one of my obsessions from then into my early teens was collecting and playing with Star Wars action figures. I still have my action figures in a box in a cupboard and now my daughter Maddie is of an age where she is starting to play with them (under my watchful eye of course!).

Anyway, as it's Halloween I thought I'd post something horrific and yet amusing at the same time. I came across the image below somewhere on the Internet. I don't know who created it but whoever they are they're very clever. It's a fake Star Wars action figure blister pack of Owen Lars & Aunt Beru (Charred). I must have a sick sense of humour because I find it hilarious.

Then I must have a similar sense of humour as you, cos I found the image hilarious.

Of course, you did laugh at the image I had on my blog: The one where the pigeon was attacking the little chinese boy with bird poo.

How can I forget that picture?

Haha! I just went back and had another look - funny stuff!

Hey Ken, I was just thinking we didn't get to game together much when you were in Brisbane but I do remember my first game of Power Grid was with you and your copy of the game at a Critical Mass meeting almost 2 years ago on 4 Nov 2005.

Combining humour with star wars, there can be no greater attractant to the late young (early middle aged?) male.

Needless to say I found the picture most amusing.

I admire the family games night. my 2 year old wants and loves to play with my games, but unfortunately is very good at scattering pieces. She has her own copy (garage sale, $5) copy of Space crusade.

I had it for trade on BGG, and had to sheepishly admit to a prospective buyer that it was now a toddler's plaything.
