As much as I like to try to have all the items in a "Cool Stuff" posting to be somehow related, occasionally, I have to do a potpourri type post. This is one of them!
Here's the box art for the 8mm version of Star Wars, and boy, was it condensed! I remember when I was a teenage geek, and was in a sci-fi club based in Tacoma. One weekend, there was a mini-SF convention being held somewhere in the Seattle area at a high school, which a group of us went up to. Among other things, they showed a copy of this 8mm or super 8mm version of Star Wars.
Of course, you have to remember that back then, in the late 1970s, there was no home video market to speak of, so this was about the only way you could see movies at home when you wanted to! Oh, sure, there was cable then, but you were at the mercy of their programmers.
Anyway, after watching this through forward, someone had the brilliant idea to show it backwards... which made the condensed version even more fun to watch! See the Death Star come together! Watch Ben Kenobi rise from the dead to fight Darth Vader! Watch the Millenium Falcon flying backwards!
Here's a bunch of random Superhero PVC figures that I wish was in a larger size so you could see more details!
Superheroes Mittens! I'm guessing there was a Batman set as well as the Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Hulk and Superman ones... maybe even an Aquaman one?
OK, it's a short posting this time around... but next time, Superman goodies!
