The on-going exploits of the eternal privates.
He's my favorite, too. In my youth I think it was the Tusken Raider figure, or maybe Han Solo because his arm was cocked in such a way that he could casually menace bad guys with his custom blaster pistol. Now I like the Ithorian. I've a plan in mind for a squad of West Wind Ithorians with a lot of conversions. Some will have to have the classic sky blue baby onesie with the Storm Trooper blaster. Maybe I'll get them done this Summer. This is a well done photo. Looks very...real!
Hey, hey, Mouse, Thanks for your comment about the photo! And a squad of West Wind Ithorians would be ace! Especially if they all have the blue onesies! Next to Hammerhead, I would also have the Tusken or small head Han or perhaps Walrus Man and classic Leia as runners-up to personal much-loved favourites! But Hammerhead was always the one!
He looks a bit shy. This is the only SWAF that I owned back in the 70's (or have owned since), and I remember wheedling round my parents to buy him from the local toyshop..... not sure where he went though.
Hi Springinsfeld, Yes, I thought so too, he does look shy and rather vulnerable. But Hammerhead has always been a sensitive type! And I imagine he likes Prog Rock too!
Hi again Springinsfeld, It's funny when comments double. I'm not sure why, but I know it has happened to me quite a few times. Always good to have you drop in for a couple of visits, Springinsfeld!
So much cool in this guy. Happy 4th of May my friend !
Hey, hey, Mr. ALMan, Feels like a while my BBB, nice to have you here! And "Cool" is Hammerhead's true Ithorian name! I hear him Scat-singing for some reason...
Happy May the 4th Hammerhead! I bought my Hammerhead along with Blue Snaggletooth at a flea-market for about 10p back in the day. Both now long gone to a galaxy far far away, with the rest of my SW toys.Nice weather you're having at the moment. Hope to see some more garden wars as the season progresses. Did you grab that copy of Reaper and its supplement? Also it's nearly time for the annual disappointment of finding nothing interesting on the local car-boot scene - I'll be keeping my eyes out for those top secret aliens for you.
Happy May the 4th to you, Zhu! You had a Blue Snaggletooth!!!?! But wait, of course! Those amazing British Flea-markets/ Carboots sales of you lucky English guys!! Ahhh. One day I must experience one of them! Hopefully maybe even find my much sought-over Yak Head! (For 99p, of course.) And thanks, but no, I did not get that Reaper Supplement. The shipping cost to Canada was rather too high. One day, though. Thanks again for the tip-off! And great to hear that you are still on top of my Deetails Alien quest! Much appreciated! I must fill the garden with them. All being well, some more Garden gaming as the summer progresses, Zhu. Although, I am finding it harder to get into regular blogging these days. Great to have stop by, Zhu!
Oi, typing while whistling never really works - should read: Great to have you stop by, Zhu!
