    Plaid Stallions A Halloween Force



    Star Wars pretty much dominated my Halloween experiences from '78 to '82, I can't be alone on this. Vader, Storm Trooper, Boba Fett and Yoda were my choices as a kid.

    Was a little too old to enjoy Star Wars as a young kid but my favorite character was always the Stormtrooper

    Those costumes were pretty creative.

    This was a step in the right direction for Ben Cooper to get away from putting a picture of the character on the smock. It's charming now, but it bugged the crap outta me as a kid! So glad they went away from that. Sure it still says "Star Wars" but it's subtle.

    I had (and still have) the Stormtrooper, but mine does have a picture of a trooper on the costume. It was different than what's pictured here. In fact, I don't remember seeing these ones at all. I also had the Vader poncho, which had a picture of Vader on it.

    These look terrific, they have more of that "playsuit" feel that I loved as a kid.

    I remember these. They're not too bad at all.

    Speaking of playsuit quality, I wore out a KISS Paul Stanley Halloween costume before Halloween and I ended up being Spider-Man that year. I think the costume was out in September and must not have been fit to wear by the end of October.

    I had the Vader and Stormtrooper masks separately without the costumes.
    I did have a full Threepio costume, but it was a different make.

    Chewie's got Han's gun. It's the reverse of the scene in Force Awakens... "Can I borrow that?"
