Star Wars stormed onto screens and into the imaginations of kids everywhere in 1977, and in 1978 Kenner rewrote the history of action toys when they created the 3 3/4 inch scale action figure themed around the now classic movie! The "Vintage" line continued through 1985 before it disappeared from toy shelves, creating a collector frenzy for this line of collectibles. Fast forward to 1995 when Kenner/Hasbro relaunched the line and created a whole new classic batch of toys that today's adults also look back on as the toys from their youth! After that they never looked back as we saw collectibles created based on the movies, comics, Expanded Universe books and cartoons, and TV programs! These days hyper realistic sculpts and articulation dominate in their Black Series line of action figures and role playing toys! There's no end in sight for the collectibility of this great toys from a "galaxy far, far away"!
