Look What I Got For Christmas

This is the starship I always wanted as a kid and now after 25+ year I finally have it.

Well, kind of.

Technically I bought this for myself last spring but was overruled by the Council and had to set it aside to be used as a Christmas gift for the 6yr old. So it has been an even longer wait.

But now that it is open the 6yr old says that I can play with it… sometimes.

    Parenthood, it allows ourselves to disguise our passions as exposing our children to experience.

    Just got mine hooked on toy soldiers. Too expensive, yes. My ‘Chainmail’ days are being relived in part as the referee for the Orc Boyz Warhammer battles.

    Good job Brent.

  • http://blog.brentknowles.com Brent Knowles

    Oooh. A space elevator would be handy.

  • http://blog.brentknowles.com Brent Knowles

    Toy soldiers! Yeah, that would be expensive. I do have a bunch of old ones buried somewhere around my office though. Maybe I’ll dig those out for them.

    Cool!  But I guess we can’t call you Captain. :)

  • Liz Pullen

    It would be hard to hand this magnificent toy over to a 6 year old. Is it still in one piece?! ; )

    Yep, he’s pretty careful though I do cringe every time it bangs into a wall (erm… asteroid)

  • http://blog.brentknowles.com Brent Knowles

    That’s generous of him :)

  • Jake

    Be careful, that can lead to addiction. I know someone who has after several months a hundred starships :-o
    Have a lot of fun!

  • Mefance

    It reminds me of the infinite battles I used to play with all sorts of spaceships.. I never was the type of little girl who wasted to much time with Cicciobello (a must have Italian doll when I was a child) ;D
