It’s become clear to me that the Star Wars action figures I enjoyed most as a kid were the really little guys. R2-D2, Jawa, Snaggletooth, Yoda, Ugnaught (I never played with the Ewoks — I was too cool for school by ’83). These were the action figures that could be stashed anywhere with total stealth. And any fool knows that when it’s one kid against the Empire, maintaining a low, secret profile is key!

    • The small vintage figures were also my favorite. I just don’t see kids loving their modern action figures like we did when we were kids in the 70s and early 80s.

      • You’re absolutely right. I guess we were fortunate to come up at such a special time. Seems like now the toys are more about Hasbro inventing infinite new ways to find money rather than just celebrating Star Wars like Kenner did.
