eBay Today: Reliving The Hype Before May 21st, 1980
Posted By D_Martin on March 16, 2012
The months leading up to May 21st, 1980 were the most incredibly nerve-racking months of many of our young lives. For the first time ever, The Star Wars Generation waited (im)patiently for a new Star Wars movie. Back in those days, movie trailers didn't really make films look good (but we didn't care), but the newsstand was littered with positive notes telling us how much our minds would be blown with the release of The Empire Strikes Back. They were, of course, telling the truth. All the journalists' words came true. Our minds were indeed blown.
