I don't remember either one of those.

Mine's a tie between the AT-AT walker and the Millenium Falcon.

Never really had any Star Wars toys when I was a kid since I don't think they were available back home, and even then we wouldn't have been able to afford it.

My favorite that I have would be my Ultimate Collector Series X-Wing Lego though.

I wanted the AT-AT but my parents got me the AT-ST. That thing was pretty cool.

Same here. I don't think mama could afford any vehicles or spaceships (I wanted the Falcon BAD) so I had to just settle for action figures and comics. I still have issue #2 of the Star Wars comic which is, amazingly, in great shape.

The 'saber was the biggest Star Wars toy I ever got so, hence, my favorite.

Worst Christmas ever I wanted the Falcon and I got the dicast small version. I wanted the AT-AT so bad when it came back out in 1997 I picked one up. Had it on the night stand for four years.

I really liked my AT-ST, Vader Tie Fighter and Snowspeeder but for some reason I played with the Hoth playset the most.

My next door neighbor "had it all". The Death Star, X-Wing Fighter, Tie Fighter, Luke's Speeder, SandCrawler, Droid Factory, AT-AT, Bantha, Tautauns, and every action figure Kenner made. What made me even more jealous was my mom (of all people) bought him the Milennium Falcon for his birthday. Why? Just because he was my best friend. Sheesh. Needless to say I was jealous as hell. The Falcon was definately my favorite of all the Star Wars toys.

I loved my Death Star, it got destroyed over the years from use. At one point I had just the individual floors and the elevator shaft left, I would play with them until they all were eventually lost or broken. I also loved my AT-AT and Falcon. I was so mad when RotJ came out, I wanted the Shuttle so bad, but instead for Xmas I got the Ewok Village, stupid ewoks.

I'm surprised I'm the first to say this, but the Tauntaun was my favorite by far.

Never had star wars action figures (I was into G.I. Joe instead), but my friend had a few toys. Of what he had, the speeder bike was my fave since you could push that button and it would split into several parts.

I'd say my fondest memory was getting the Millenium Falcon for Christmas in 83. It was from the Return of the Jedi toy line. Definitely my favorite of the regular sized line.

However, I probably spent the most time with the micro playsets. I had the Bespin World, the Death Star Escape, the Hoth Wampa Cave, and the X-Wing Fighter. They were really cool since those sets came with die-cast figurines in various poses. The Bespin World set really was the bomb.

My cousin had a miniature Millenium Falcon that I coveted, and when my aunt offered to give it to me, my mom refused to take it. Argh!!!

Hey! I had those micro playsets too! (Again, I could only get small stuff) I had the Bespin World (Luke-with-Gun is the only figure that I still have. I did find Nazi-saluting Vader in one of my stashes before I moved 3 years ago. Haven't seen it since) and wasn't there a Hoth Battle station with the Hoth Rebels? If so, I had that too.

The one I wish I had was the big Sand Crawler. My cousin had it and it was so awesome.

I agree those micro sets were real nice. I had the Hoth Battle set with the exploding gun turrets.

Did anyone one else make their Falcon "dirty" like in the movie? Mine looked pretty authentic by the time I got thru with it. I also liked the remote Sandcrawler which I wish I still had
