Hey, the Sega Master System Looked like a Star Wars Computer Panel

When I was growing up, no one I knew had the Sega Master System. In fact, I didn’t know it existed at all until I was a full-grown adult, because let’s face it, no one cared about the Master System when it was originally released. However, I absolutely cared — and still care — about Star Wars. And if I’d known about the Master System as a child, its appearance probably would have made me want the thing.

If I’d had the Sega Master System as a kid, I would have used it as a prop in the make-believe Star Wars universe I retreated to so often.

I could have pretended to be Han Solo on the Death Star with it. I would have pushed buttons and run off to save Princess Leia and had all sorts of adventures with it. Look at this image from the original movie:

Star Wars

And now look at the Sega Master System.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go find a Sega Master System to purchase so I can build my own Star Wars-style computer panel.
