1980 J.C. Penney Christmas Catalog: Lego Space and The Empire Strikes Back

As I’ve said before, Lego Space may be the best toy line ever. Beta-1 Command Base, I would like to stroke your box. Come hither.

As for Empire, I had the Imperial Attack Base, the Tauntaun (subtitled “the Weird Hoth Snow Creature” in the catalog), and the Snowspeeder. I guess I opted for the all-Hoth experience.

I remember hearing that the radio-controlled Sand Crawler was a flop, but I don’t think I ever saw it in action. It was way too expensive, and clearly a gimmick.
