Way back in the day, I was lucky enough to get nearly all of the original Star Wars action figures in one big lump on Christmas Day. Princess Leia, the Storm Troopers, the Jawas, and the droids arrived as a stocking stuffer, while Luke, Han, and Chewbacca landed as a group package. Obi-Wan was positioned under the tree inside the Land Speeder next to a Sand People, but the best was seeing Darth Vader inside the Tie-Fighter next to the fireplace.*

Today, instead of Star Wars, maybe the young at heart are getting Avengers action figures.

*Yes, close observers will note that I did not get the Death Squad Commander.
