^ I love it 😃

James Earl Jones is the man.

For me it was the ships and vehicles, especially growing up with the toys and figures.

The beaten-up ‘second-hand’ look of the rag-tag Rebel Fleet gave the story some extra depth and quality, a sense of the ‘hopeless cause’, that they were scratching around for anything and everything to us vs the well resourced and ‘new shiny’ Empire - with their seemingly limitless supply of ships.

And it was great, and something different, as a kid seeing that on-screen and then running off and playing with those aged / battle-damaged toys etc.

The SnowSpeeder and B-Wing don’t get enough love in my book - pah to those fancy X-Wings 😉
