I've been trying to sniff out of any connections between toys of the Sixties and Star Wars.
Lacking sufficient Force this time of the morning my Thursday brain is struggling to get past the scum and villainy of my dreams.
Short of tearing this moonbase apart to find the plans, the only thing I can think of is an old link I found in the first months of the blog in 2008 to a website called Secret Fun Spot.
The site had a fun section about Star Wars knockoffs.
Alas the site appears now to be defunct but I did archive a particular image:
Along with obvious C3PO clones made of metal there is a neat set of our friends the Blue Box space vehicles.
Interestingly the Space Car at the bottom of the picture is white. Back in 2008 I'd never seen a white one before and now in 2017 I'm not sure I have yet.
Have you readers?
Why they are Star Wars knockoffs I'm not sure unless the website was only interested in the C3PO bit. Yep, that could be it.
What's your fave Star Wars toy or collectable?
