Remember that time that Carol Anne was sucked through her bedroom closet, presumably used as a beacon of light and hope for those lost souls caught traveling between two dimensions? Well recent evidence has brought a new story to the table, and it suggests that the TV People weren't really after Carol Anne at all. Hold onto your bed frames, things are about to get controversial.
You see, it all began when I was thinking about Robbie. Poor Robbie. He's ugly, he's the middle child and he doesn't eat as much as Dana
(PS why is she wearing a button on her bathrobe??) nor is he adorable and 5 years old like Carol Anne. So what could he possibly be good for? Heck, even when he thinks he's going to get all the attention by being eaten by a tree
Carol Anne goes and gets herself sucked through the closet causing all the focus to be right back on her. Well this may very well be Robbie's lucky day, because according to this evidence, it is actually his fault that the TV people acted out in the first place.
Even though Robbie has nothing going for him looks wise, he does have what is perhaps the most amazing collection of Star Wars toys and memorabilia this world has ever seen. What the world really wants to know is how he in the heck he got his hands on all that good stuff when his father is a crappy real estate agent and his mother has no job. Setting aside the notion that Steven Spielberg likes to shout out to his buddy George Lucas, the question of Robbie's immense collection is quite mind boggling.
In fact this question is so mind boggling that the TV People couldn't figure it out themselves. They were so amazed, and concerned about this collection that they decided they would have to get their hands on it to see what the deal was. Yes, you guessed it---the TV people really only wanted Robbie's Star Wars toys. The only problem was, the wind to suck it out was so intense that they got Carol Anne thrown in as a bonus. And since they only wanted the Star Wars goodies, the TV people took Carol Anne and threw her aside where the Beast scooped her up. See? It makes perfect sense. That's why the TV People never came to her aide once she was connected to the Beast. They weren't afraid of the Beast--they were busy playing with the Star Wars toys.
Still don't believe me? How about this. All the other toys were sucked into the closet but were still in the room when the Freelings came back inside. The only toys missing are the Star Wars toys! Just like Carol Anne, the Star Wars stuff was obviously taken to the other side. Similarly, when the paranormal investigators go into the room and find all the bewitched toys gallivanting around--there is virtually no sign of any Star Wars stuff (save for a poster of Darth Vader, but who wants a poster?). Therefore the only sane conclusion that can be drawn is that the TV people are really big Star Wars fans. Duh.
Now let us take a look at that amazing collection.
Yoda puppet (thanks Michelle)
Does anyone really own the model of the probe droid at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back? I didn't think so. Shit's rare dude! You can't see it but there's also a large Tie Fighter on that shelf.
A bust of Darth Vader AND Star Wars sheets.
Seriously?! A Tauntaun figurine?! And a Star Wars poster of course. But for real. That Tauntaun is money. Also it disappears and reappears all the time and is replaced by an R2-D2 model that we'll see later, and also it sometimes becomes a Rubik's cube.
See? This shot is literally a second after the one above it, and now R2 is there. Tauntaun's work in mysterious ways...
And there's the Rubik's Cube!
A better look at that shelf.
A Chewbacca jacket? I bet the TV People fought long and hard over that one.
It's hard to see but there! Right by Craig T Nelson's left arm--the Tauntaun returns!
And then BOOM Yoda is back. Shit's crazy.
A little double poster action.
And perhaps the piece de resistance--a C3-PO light switch!
Yes quite the collection. Join me next time when we delve into the REAL reason Robbie has so many Star Wars toys to begin with.
