Star Wars Micro Machines Action Fleet Death Star Playset from 1996!

A little while back I covered the Star Wars Action Fleet Rebel Base Playset, and it's about time I did the same for the Empire's base. Behold, the Death Star!

Musings about Christmas things!

I don't do many (if any) posts that aren't reviews or looking at things. But reviews haven't been very forthcoming of late, so probably for the first time ever here is a post that isn't a look at a toy or video game! I really enjoy writing and I think I always have. Somewhere in …
