May the 4th be with You

Today is May 4th, known among Star Wars fans as "May the Fourth", like "May the Force be with you", from the Star Wars series. It has become the unofficial day to celebrate all things Star Wars related.

So, seeing that I needed to add some excitement and joy to my life today, the quarantine/social distancing/ Covid 19 situation has had me feeling a bit down, I decided to open up my two Forces of Destiny action figures/dolls. The dolls were released around 2017 and are by Hasbro.

 Up first is Leia Organa and R2-D2.

 For this set, Leia is dressed in the costume she wore on Hoth during episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back. (Many fans consider this the best of the Star Wars movies.)

 The other doll is Rey of Jakku. Rey is one of the main characters from the final trilogy: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens, Episode 8 - The Last Jedi, and Episode 9 - The Rise of Skywalker (which I haven't seen yet, so no spoilers, please).

May the 4th be with you.
