Meeting Darth Vader and Boba Fett at the Local Mall (1980)

Flickr user scad92 posted two photos on his Flickr account that revolve around his meeting of Darth Vader and Boba Fett at the Local Mall back in 1980. I remember hearing second-hand about these type of experience, but never in my young life did I have the opportunity to meet the Dark Lord of the Sith and the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy. If I had heard about this type of appearance, I would have bugged everyone and their grandmother to get them to take me. Especially around the time of Empire Strikes Back, which blew me away.

scad92 was a lucky kid. Here is a the photo from the event plus the goods he scored there.
