Star Wars Power Droid Wanders Aimlessly Around Town

Da dee dooo dee dum
Not really Famicom Related but what the hell.  I love my Star Wars Power Droid Action Figure so.   These photos work best if you imagine he is singing as he moseys around like this.
Watch might get what your babies....strange but not a stranger.....I....AM...AN....OR-DI-NA-RY GUY...Burning down the house

And I think its gonna be a long long time til touchdown brings me round again to find I`m not the man they think I am at home oh no no no I`m a rocket man...ROCKET MAN--- burning out his fuse up here alone....
Oh the Camptown Ladies Sing this Song Doo Dar, Doo Dar.....
Never gonna give you up, Never gonna let you down, never gonna run around or desert you....Never gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie or hurt you.....

I got something to tell you....I got something to say....I`m gonna put this dream in motion...Never let something stand in my way....When the going gets tough....the tough get going.  Woooh

Shiny Happy People me in the crowd people...people....throw your love me....
With a load of iron ore 26000 tons more than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty...That big ship `n true was a bone to be chewed when the gales of November came early.....
If you`re blue and you don`t know where to go to why don`t you go where fashion sits.....puttin` on the ritz.....
I meet her in a club down in old Soho where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Cherry Cola....C-O-L-A Cola.....


  1. Is that a wind-up toy, or does it just stand around? I have a wind-up Pac-Man, I should take pictures of it just sittin' around.

  2. AK - thanks!

    Skyrunner - no, its just a regular Star Wars action figure, one of the originals released in 1978.

    A wind up PacMan would definitely be photogenic:)

    1. Man, that thing is pretty charming, ain't he? Maybe you should add a few more droids just so he doesn't feel lonely.

  4. He does have a bit of style I think. Maybe next time I`ll bring R2 D2 out with him:)

  5. Top one is my favorite. He looks a bit like a drunk salary man.

  6. I like that one too. Now that you mention it, he does look like a drunk salary man. He looks like he might fall over drunk any second now:)

  7. This is great! I would like to get this guy.I have a newer Gonk Droid(1996?)this guy just seems so much more charming than the Gonk that I own.

  8. Jason - thanks!

    I never really liked those Star Wars action figures that came out in the 90s. Partly it was because I dont feel any sentimental attachment to them like I do with the vintage ones I played with as a kid, but also I think its because they just don`t have the same charm that the original ones do.
