Star Wars Toys from Kenner Advertisement (1979)
Check out this advertisement for Star Wars toys available from Kenner. This ad appeared in comic books in late 1979. I owned nearly all of these toys. The only item on this page I didn’t own was the Imperial Troop Transporter (it wasn’t in the film, so I wasn’t interested). Given the amount of Star Wars product on the market today, it’s hard to remember a time when there wasn’t much available. The idea of owning all Star Wars products nowadays is nearly inconceivable. Ahhhh… the good ole days.

I was just thinking this the other day as I was walking through the toy aisle of Target. Even now, it’s a problem for (say) a Doctor Who collector. I’ve limited myself almost exclusively to Big Finish Doctor Who stuff, having to pass on (say) novelizations-on-CD from the BBC, NuWho audios, etc. Even with those restrictions, I’ve been struggling to keep up with the Big Finish Doctor Who spin-offs…
I wonder if license-holders make conscious decisions about juuuuuust how far they can push their luck with customers.
This ad got me SO excited when I first saw it in a comic!
Love the site. Just wanted to get your thoughts on this http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/travel-outdoors/bb2e/
I love this ad! I just noticed that you posted this and then I posted the exact same ad on my blog like three weeks later. Yikes! Sorry if I look like a copycat! 😉 Great minds thinking alike, I guess!
