Well it’s here! The fruition of my 38 year dream! (that’s a life time…. For a 38 year old) except I’m not! I’m 46 , so 8 year old Adam had images of these dudes burnt into his brain (is that why I’m post traumatic do you think?) the spectacle of laser guns, spaceships, Heros in black! Villains in white. The space adventure cowboy and Indian saga that was Star Wars.
Oh you may say that it’s a waste of money, it’s childish, it’s stupid. But look at what thousands do every weekend. Dress up in THEIR uniforms (or team colours) spend hundreds of pounds watching OTHERS play what they used to play as a child , gather with other likeminded individuals to cheer or swear at their chosen few. Well I intend to seek out an illusive group called the ‘501st’ this is a group of like minded individuals who do a whole lot of VOLUNTEER work around the country! Is that such a waste of time or stupid?
I haven’t tried it on yet, it took a bloody age to figure out how to put it on Bob (yes I have a shop mannequin named Bob) well I can’t just throw it in me wardrobe can I? Everything is there, I’m just eating for a couple of things like under garments and boots (I live in hope they arrive soon) and I’ve been in touch with ‘Shepperton’ studios, me blaster shouldn’t take too long to arrive. Oh I’m a geek right now and I don’t care! I’m as happy as a seagull with a stolen chip.
