1980 Topps Empire Strikes Back #80 Lobot
The Saga Continues: 30 years ago this weekend, The Empire Strikes Back opened in theaters. As I've revealed previously, my son Doug is somewhat obsessed with all things Star Wars, having recently inherited his father's collection of old toys. He's watched the first movie a few dozen times now, so I thought last night would be as good a time as any to introduce him to the next movie, the "scary" movie. We had talked about it, and I made him aware the "mean guys" win this time. Undaunted, we charged onward, and with a few of the more intense scenes skipped over, Doug is now enamored with Dagobah and Cloud City and Lobot and Boba Fett.
