Episode 7 was brilliant, well played JJ, also Rogue One looks amazing, can’t wait till that comes out! One thing that The Force Awakens has done, is make practical effects cool again and as a result, Star Wars spaceships look cool again! Although I’m now at an age where I make impromptu grunts and groans when getting out of a comfy chair, one consolation is that I was a 4 year old when Return of the Jedi came out so, almost my entire life has been spent with Star Wars around me.
As a kid, Star Wars figures were an absolute must have (I say ‘as a kid’- I still have 60 odd original ones) but what you really wanted as a kid… was a spaceship to put them in. The authentic looking ships from The Force Awakens have definitely re-kindled peoples attraction to the spaceships and vehicles from Star Wars so I thought I’d make a ‘Top 10 coolest Star Wars spaceships’ type blog.
I’ve tried to base the list on me as a kid by the way, to make it more interesting, if it was how I felt now, I’d just be looking for the one with the most leg room and a small bar.
May the 4th be with you!
