MY STAR WARS BEDROOM


By age thirteen, I was completely submersed in Star Wars and these snapshots of my childhood bedroom proves that. This was the year that I took my Star Wars figures and toys out of the toy box and put them on display in my bedroom. My dad made me a nifty shelf for my figures and my nightstand worked as a Star Wars display table. It's hard to tell, but the two posters on the wall are both Return of the Jedi posters. The one closest to the figure shelf is a Hi-C mail away poster. (I'm not sure I still have that poster or not, but if I do I'll post it later in the week.)

The next photo was taken sometime in 1984. I got the Revenge of the Jedi poster through the fan club and the Star Wars rerelease poster was a Christmas gift from my parents. They bought it from one of our local theaters. The C-3PO and Stormtrooper masks came from the backs of C-3PO's cereal boxes.  


How do you like my Jabba's Palace action figure display? That shelf was the home to my comic collection and the top shelf was always a rotating display of stuff that I collected.

I still think you need to frame that SW rerelease poster and hang it up NC.

That is an amazing Star Wars collection. Hell, I wish my bedroom looked like that now.
