Where were you 30 years ago?

So yeah, many of you weren't born yet.   It was early afternoon and I was swimming at a friends house (I was 14) and his Mom came out and said Elvis had died.   I of course responded by asking "Who's Elvis".    Many years later I have actually developed a appreciation for Elvis.   Not so much his music but the whole personna.   One of the first Diva's in my opinion.

RIP 
Elvis Aaron Presley  January 8, 1935 - August 16, 1977

did they have Star Wars toys yet? I remember it not being a big hit right away. I didn't even see it in a theater till 1979 and then it was at a drive in. Star Wars is the only movie I did not see opening day (or before). I actually saw it on a boot leg Betamax tape (I think my parents may still have it)!

Your right.. the StarWars toys were not released until October/Nov of 77 for the Christmas rush. I honestly dont remember being 2 all that well.. I do remember having giant robot toys and Godzilla and Ultraman toys. Infact I still have them.
