I admit, I was a fanatic after seeing it when I was 10. I threw away all of my 6 million dollar man stuff and converted.
I have the original full set in perfect condition trading cards (the ones with the puzzle on the back) that still smell like bazooka bubble gum. built all the original models that were available and still have vader's tie fighter (thats the only one I didn't later blow up with firecrackers after discovering dungeons&dragons).

yes, I was and still am...a geek.

Sadly enough many a year ago I passed on all of my Star Wars toys to a family that their kids had far and few toys. This also included my Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers toys plus my Hot Wheels collection. It was for a good cause so I hope they enjoyed them.

Loc: Cambridge UK.
one Christmas, Luke was walking the deserts of Tattooine, when Vader appeared out of a sand-swirl.
Drawing his sabre luke stepped back warily- 'What do you want father?' he asked.

Vader held his gaze- 'Luke, i have to tell you something. For christmas, you have been given a Furby, an Xbox360, and some novelty socks'

Suspicious, Luke asked- 'How can you know this you devious sith?'

To which Vader answered- 'I have felt your presents'

only 15 weeks till Christmas boys and girls- ho ho ho!

The TRUE ending to "the Empire Strikes Back":
-----------------------------------------------------------
A furious lightsaber duel is underway. DARTH VADER is
backing LUKE SKYWALKER towards the end of the gantry. A quick
move by Vader, chops off Luke's hand! It goes spinning off
into the ventilation shaft. Luke backs away. He looks around,
but realizes there's nowhere to go but straight down.

Darth Vader: Obi Wan never told you what happened to your
father.

Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!

Darth Vader: No... I am your father!

Luke: No, it's not true! It's impossible.

Darth Vader: Search your feelings... you know it to be
true...

Luke: NO!

Darth Vader: Yes, it is true.. and you know what else? You
know that brass droid of yours?

Luke: Threepio?

Darth Vader: Yes... Threepio... I built him... when I was 7
years old...

Luke: No...

Darth Vader: Seven years old? And what have you done? Look
at yourself, no hand, no job, and couldn't even levitate your
own ship out of the swamp...

Luke: I destroyed your precious Death Star!

Darth Vader: When you were 20! When I was 10, I
single-handedly destroyed a Trade Federation Droid Control
ship!

Luke: Well, it's not my fault...

Darth Vader: Oh, here we go... "Poor me... my father never
gave me what I wanted for my birthday... boo hoo, my daddy's
the Dark Lord of the Sith... waahhh wahhh!"

Luke: Shut up...

Darth Vader: You're a slacker! By the time I was you're age,
I had exterminated the Jedi knights!

Luke: I used to race my T-16 through Beggar's Canyon!

Darth Vader: Oh, for the love of the Emperor... 10 years
old, winner of the Boonta Eve Open... Only human to ever fly
a Pod Racer... right here baby!

Luke looks down the shaft. Takes a step towards it.

Darth Vader: I was wrong... You're not my kid... I don't
know whose you are, but you sure ain't mine...

Luke takes a step off the platform, hesitates, then plunges
down the shaft.

Darth Vader looks after him.

Darth Vader: Get a haircut!
