We love you Mr Spock

Yesterday’s loss of Leonard Nimoy felt strangely personal to me, perhaps because as someone smarter than me said “It feels like we lost a friend”.

Nimoy’s portrayal of Mr Spock has always been a topic of conversation here at PlaidStallions, especially all the wonderful Star Trek merchandise that we 70s kids got.

Toy makers such as Remco, Mego, AHI and others recognized Nimoy as the most recognizable factor of the show and his visage appeared on thousands of items during the course of our childhood, here are some of my favourites.

    Nimoy has been there as long as I can remember existing. It seems absurd that he's gone.
