all things

The shuttle originally came with a red-and-gold satellite for inside the payload bay, but that disappeared when I was still playing with it. The shuttle itself lasted reasonably well despite Edgar chewing at the stickers, finally losing a couple of wheels when one of his colleagues threw it down the stairs and falling to pieces shortly afterwards, though I rescued it from the box of things to be thrown out and glued it back together. The C-3PO originally came with a wee bag for a Chewbacca (available separately) to carry it in, but I lost that sometime in the 1980s. Since it was retrieved from the small cache of action figures for a week of green faces the limbs have gradually loosened. One of them spent a couple of weeks somewhere in a sofa, being found just in time for it to be taken to school last week, returning with a leg missing, presumably permanently.
