And Now for a Total Geek Out
It was a comic book store, but also a total geek out vintage shop full of toys, games, and other ephemera from popular science fiction and fantasy. Each area of the shop was given to a different show or movie, like Star Trek, X-Men, or Star Wars.
When I saw this Darth Vader, I knew I had to have it. I had actually owned one of these when I was about 7 or 8 and foolishly sold it at a garage sale when I had moved on to other hobbies, like collecting model horses. But what is it?
Why, it's a carrying case for all your action figures!
And my Pez dispensers fit perfectly!
I don't have many action figures anymore (the large Boba Fett in the top picture my husband just brought me from a business trip) but I have held onto these Pez dispensers.
I really adore this Luke Skywalker!
We have this weird niche in our dining room that he looked a little spooky in but it's not the most visible spot.
I moved him into our living room for now to guard the room.
