    Plaid Stallions Zayre Wars



    I think this ad nicely captures the moment in time where my personal lust for all things Star Wars reached a pinnacle. As a kid I had all but two (never got a 12 inch Vader or R2) of the items pictured here. All of them got ruined not by neglect but by constant play.

    Spectacular! I have everything on that page except for the 12 inch Vader. Still need most of the 12 inch figures.

    I like how they are telling how many of the item each store carries. You can see the pattern based on the size/price of the item, 8 of the Death Star Play up to 288 action figures.

    I wish Ames never bought them out. Both stores might still be around today.
