Rusty, dusty, dirty and fun-in-the-sun, the swingsets of our childhood backyards were the great play places of youth. Swings made of wood, plastic, and rubber could make us queazy or launch us into the sky. Slides were for running up or sliding down trucks and X-Wings. Teeter-totters and glide swings filled the the gap. But eventually, every swingset became an object to be climbed. We all have our memories of summers gone by, and for many of us, those summers included the backyard swingset.
Inside our houses, we were setting up our Star Wars toys for display on bookshelves, serving trays, dressers, and closets. While Boba Fett was loading Captain Solo in the cargo hold at shazbazzar’s house, TIE Fighters and X-Wings battled above JediShua’s bed with colored yarn. And Cris Macht beats it all with several curio cabinets in the loft and the basement.
Speaking of Cris Macht, his newest project is currently on Kickstarter. The Real Fans of the Saga is a serial style reality show about four fans of Star Wars and their families. You have only two days to help fund this series following Alphie, Beau, Cris, and Sean from Celebration Anaheim to The Force Awakens and beyond. PLUS: All of Cris Macht’s documentaries will soon be available to stream through Amazon.com.
In the NEWS: John Williams is scoring some of our most anticipated movies while ALF and the Jetsons mourn their losses this week.
