One of two toddler toys from when I was a wee nipper, probably around 52-53 years...

Needs a proper dusting, I notice.

My Star Wars Amiibos. I bought then 2nd hand at CEX (UK) for my geekyness and because I'm a Star Wars fan. I care not for their in-game unlocks (even though I do have a Nintendo Switch).

Obi-Wan Kenobi, my brother from another mother though I won't ever be as cool as him.

Leia Organa, every 1970s teenagers wet dream ... Until Episode VI, then it went full soft porn.

Boba Fett, the most badass space bounty hunter to die in a comic relief scene ... Until Mikey Mouse said Disney needs more money and started a new TV Show and he'a fine now, not a single worm problem on him :p

Him ... Who? ... Well, to many shows to keep up but he's important and a Jedi in the Rebels series. I didn't exactly want him but they said they will pay me to get rid of him so I'm picking up Disney's strays now. :p

Here is a rare picture of ALL the toys I had during childhood. A few of them were my older brother's who passed them on to me. Since they were the only toys I had I was dreading them breaking as we couldn't replace them. The black and white bear-like figure in the front row is the oldest toy I can remember, it also had a bucket and a brush and I can remember playing with it in my sleeping cot.

They survived all childhood and adulthood, they survived my kids playing with them and they went missing 4 years ago during moving to this house. I am hopeful that they will appear again one day.

I hope you find them, Pan.

I lost a lot of things during an acrimonious divorce over 40 years ago.

The most valued were many of my slides, but many other things too. I miss many of them, to this day.

Someone donated a beautiful locomotive to the Goodwill store up in Spokane WA and I was lucky enough to win the auction for it. Unlike my last GW locomotive, this one requires no work to get it running and it all works like it should, including the smoke! This will pull my wife's Christmas train nicely.

I found these in a shop yesterday that I didn't know it was there (the toys, not the shop). This got me excited about in idea to do macro recreations out in the woods. Until I saw the price of each, 3 £ for the Indians and 5 £ for the British colonial soldiers ... that's a bit racist?
