I'm just going to recap how this year was for me after bringing a large part of mt childhood back from Texas. I have spent countless hours cleaning and organizing my rediscovered toys, also countless hours discussing with my wife how much these toys mean to me and why it was good I brought some home ( I will easily be able to pay off the trip and then some with toys I don't want by selling on Ebay.) It took 5 large boxes shipped from FedEx past 1:00 in the morning on last Superbowl Sunday, I had to drive an hour back to my hotel and continue packing after picking up a duffle bag big enough to transport a Cobra Nightraven in the upper compartment of the plane. I had a lot of organizing and packing to do in the hotel ...
Still sorting through the mess at this point
My C-3PO case, filled with my figures
All of the smaller figures and robots came with me on the plane, as well as the more rare figures that were loose. I had to throw away some older clothes to make room, my dress shoes got destroyed in the garage anyway. There were many things I still could not take that made it out of the garage, as well as items I had to leave the box for like the Cobra Nightraven.
I loved this game as a kid, it was too big to bring back, but I kept the metal figures
I was so exhausted by the end of it all but the joy of getting so much stuff back gave me the energy
to make it.
