As you all know, I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. Any excuse to celebrate this wonderful franchise, and I’m game for it!
I bought my first set of Think Geek Star Wars Geeki Tikis a couple of years back, and last year I acquired series 2, as well as the limited edition Jabba & Salacious Crumb set. They are incredible (thank you ThinkGeek!), and I am hoping series 3 will feature some of the newer characters we were introduced to since the Force Awakens…
But they had just sat looking pretty on the kitchen shelf for some time, and I hadn’t found the right opportunity to use them.
And so, when I was thinking of a theme for my birthday last year, I decided to use these fine specimens as my inspiration, and worked around them to create a “Star Wars Fiesta”!
I was particularly pleased with the end result: a bright and exotic twist on my previous, more traditional, Star Wars events, with plenty more sophistication than your usual Mos Eisley cantina.
Series 1: R2D2, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Yoda & Stormtrooper
