The X-34 was an open-air cockpit civilian landspeeder famously owned by Luke Skywalker. Landspeeders are fictional antigravity craft used through the Star Wars movies & the Expanded Universe.

The most overlooked Star Wars collectibles from Kenner’s in the 80's was it's eleven diecast metal vehicles. All the vehicles were from Star Wars & The Empire Strikes Back movies. Most of these vehicles featured some moving or removable parts, making it difficult to find loose mint versions of tis toys. Quality wise, it’s not as realistic or detailed as those from the 90′s. But, I feel is a much cooler piece to have!

My Childhood Star Wars Memorabilia


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… (1977, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to be precise). I was a seven years old boy gazing at the 20 feet tall frame of Darth Vader on the cinema screen & I knew right away he was one badass! I saw Star Wars three times that month, & it went on to play a huge role in my childhood, it taught me tat the force was all around me & you say "May the force be with you" rather then good bye!

Before I had the action figure I had this Polaroid that meant the world to me! The lighting was not perfect & it would have been better if Vader & Stormtrooper had switched places… It was taken at retail store where the action figures were sold. I am glad my parents spend their hard earned money for this photo, it is better then any Star Wars toys that I have!

Here is half of my Empire Strikes Back ticket from August 1981. Back when tickets were tickets & not a electronically stub! & when you only had to pay RM$2.50 for a movie. The cinema ran a "Know your robot" contest at that time for some unrelated soft drink prizes.

For those who were able to catch the first round of Star Wars like me… it was truly a very special magical time & I don't think it will ever wear off... May the force be with us!
