Today I lose a friend.
I remember that Christmas. The Christmas the Enterprise, Capt. Kirk, Mr. Spock, Scotty, Bones and a Klingon orbited my Christmas tree. I played with them until their arms fell off and the transporter no longer spun.
Not sure when I picked up this Spock, but it was in an antique store in Jamestown, CA and it was one of those “Don’targuewithmewoman! I’mbuyingthisrightnow” moments. I remember haggling with the wife to get Kirk, but Spock was more of an obsessive purchase she could do nothing about.
Sigh. Gotta come up with $$$ for the hordes of 15mm infantry I need for Gruntz and Fallout15. Spock, your sacrifice will not be in vain.
