Star Wars Figures

It was every parent’s nightmare. A seemingly endless stream of plastic figures that were just affordable individually, but for which you’d need to take out a second mortgage to complete the set.

Dozens of figures were produced in at least two different sizes, along with scale models of hardware from the film and electric guns that emitted a series of ear-splitting death tones – at least until you played with them in the rain.

Just as it seemed there couldn’t be a single thing left to exploit from the 1977 film, the sequel The Empire Strikes Back (1980) was released!
