Greg and the Trade Federation MTT

Greg's Star Wars Trade Federation MTT "Troop Carrier" arrived. We took it out of the box.

Here he is playing with it.

Terrible parenting.... you should be ashamed!

A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are the only acceptable Star Wars movies from which toys should be purchased.

Acknowledging the Phantom Menace was even created is just a blight on humanity.

I'm sure your son realized this travesty and is making a perfectly working version of the Millenium Falcon out of his box.

I got my niece and nephew (about 3 and 5 years old) a big almost desk size box one Christmas. Just a plain box. My sister said they were done with all their other toys by the end of Christmas day, but they played with that box for several more weeks until it wore out. Creative play beats corporate marketing every time.

Too complex or too boring.

WTF? He looks perfectly healthy. You must be an American. Only Americans like fat kids.

Oh no, that ultimate-anonymity spammer is everywhere I go!?!

That's because it's 'new' Star Wars. I'm in total agreement with Ted.

Congratulations, you just gave your child the gift of imagination. He will eventually learn to hate you for it.

LOL, my son would do the same. Build a fort out of, or decorate, the box. Eventually build the lego toy. Add it into his pile of legos. Eventually deconstructing it and building pokemon characters out of the legos.

I remember playing a lot with boxes when I was a kid. I used to do all kinds of stuff, from cardboard airplanes to 'remote cat traps' (I had a poor cat that suffered the 'testing' with a saint's patience).

I think sometimes having parents that won't buy you everything you want forces you to get good value from what you have.

Cheers!

That says a lot. That and having a kid a open one gift, play with it, and forget all about the others under the tree (or cake).. they're some form of contentment in there somewhere.

The MTT is a beast.. my son put it together in a single sitting.. 10 hrs (he was seven at the time).. video here if you're interested..
MTT Build-out

I can't remember what came in it, but I had an absolutely huge (i.e., fit two pre-teen girls in it) box bestowed on me when I was about 12. One night, my friend Kim & I made a fort out of it and slept outside. The next day, we made up this *awesome* game that I'm thinking should be called 'rock the box' - basically it consisted of sitting with our backs to the bottom of the box (the bottom perpendicular to the ground) and rocking back and forth. Spent *hours* doing this. Good times.

This proves that humans and cats are genetically linked at some point in history.

This is exactly what my broter and I did one Christmas in the late 1960s. It' so good to see that some things don't change!

ted striker,

YOU'RE the one who should be ashamed. At least the droids and the MMT are from George Lucas's original storyline (if you want proof google wookieepedia). If you want to complain then complain about the newest movie "the Clone Wars" because ANAKIN NEVR HAD A FREAKIN APPRENTICE
