Damn you, Benjamin Oderwald and Shuffle/Repeat!

(Note big brother’s Hulk socks in the second photo. What’s on his pajamas? It’s driving me nuts.)

    Man, I wanted an AT-AT so much. But I couldn’t complain because I had the Death Star playset, and that was pretty epic.

      Same here. My best friend got it. My parents and his parents would discuss what playsets to get each of us so that we could share. Totally brilliant of them. We got our own figures, though, and painted the bottoms of the feet with different color nail polish to identify them.

    Got a close-up of that outfit. I’m making out “The Terrible Troll” but haven’t found a match in images yet.

    Given Shuffle/Repeat’s flickr account info, as well as the wording on the AT-AT, I’d bet those pajamas are in French. I’m seeing a red dinosaur in some sort of fur loincloth, and the logo seems to read *MROL*, with the star parts being cut off. On the other hand, could the top lettering read “The Terrible”..?

    The PJ image really looks like a Mercer Mayer from his “Little Monster” days.

    I remember that AT-AT ’81 Xmas morning well!
