I was a “tom-boy” when I was little and I never liked the girly stuff I got. I secretly coveted the Star Wars toys my brother got. Fifteen years later my brother has allowed me to keep his old Star Wars toys as reparation for the ill treatment of his little sister. I think it was a great deal. Mental trauma is easily wiped away with stuff like this!

I’ve always loved the Star Wars series and though I’m not actively collecting new Star Wars stuff, I see this collection as a representation of my childhood. Other than the increased monetary value they have now, they will always have sentimental value. I would never have given these toys to my brother had it been the other way around!
