Star Wars action figure 'time capsule' rediscovered after 27 years


Here's a very cool story we came across that you old school fans will appreciate. Gareth Wood, a Star Wars collector in the UK, recently posted the picture above to the Echo Base UK Trading Vintage Star Wars group on Facebook. It shows a "time capsule" he says he buried inside of the wall of his garage when his father built it in 1989 when he was ten years old. He could only remember that he put a Star Wars figure inside, but couldn't remember which one it was. He recently was able to retrieve it from inside of the wall only to discover it was a Stormtrooper action figure! It looks like he survived the storage process and is quite well preserved!
