Vintage Star Wars Action Figures

The very first Star Wars action figures were released in 1978 as part of the mail-away Star Wars Early Bird Kit, which contained Star Wars figures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and R2-D2. The last figures in the series were released during the Power Of The Force series in 1985, before Kenner released figures based on the Droids and Ewoks cartoon TV shows. After that there was a ten year break until Hasbro started to produce Star Wars figures again in 1995.

Vintage Star Wars

Here is an alphabetical list of Star Wars figures released on a Star Wars cardback. You will find Boba Fett, which was also released on a Star Wars cardback, in the Empire Strikes Back section.

Vintage Star Wars Pack-In Figures

Following figures were packed-in with playsets. The Droid Factory playset from 1979 was the very first build-a-droid set ever released. Hasbro and Disney turned to this very same concept many years later, predominently during the 2008 The Legacy Collection and the 2012 Disney Park exclusive Build-A-Droid series, where they released various action figure parts which could be assembled to a full droid.

Vintage The Empire Strikes Back

One of the oddities in the vintage The Empire Strikes Back line is the mistake Kenner made when they released Zuckuss and named him 4-LOM, and 4-LOM was named Zuckuss on the packaging. Hasbro paid tribute to this very same mistake when they released an intentionally mislabeled 2-pack in 2010 to kick off The Vintage Collection.

Power Of The Force

The Power Of The Force series contained the "THE LAST 17" figures which were based on a Star Wars movie during vintage times. After that Kenner's focus moved on to the animated Droids and animated Ewoks toy lines. One of the harder to get figures from the "THE LAST 17" is Yakface, which was never released in the United States.

Star Wars: Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO

Following figures were released in 1985 based on the Star Wars: Droids "The adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO" cartoon. Kenner released a total of 13 figures, with only Boba Fett and the A-Wing pilot being re-releases. The very last figure "VLIX" was only released in Brazil, which makes it one of the rarest and most valuable Star Wars action figures.
