Started a blog www.retrotoyinfo.co.uk

Postby retrotoyinfo » Sat Dec 30, 2017 8:08 pm

Hi All,

I love Star Wars, the history of Kenner and other Kenner toys from the 1970s and 1980s. I recently started a new blog http://www.retrotoyinfo.co.uk

The pictures used in the blog were all taken by me from toys in my personal collection.

I have collected Star wars toys for over 20 years and created the blog simply because I am so interested in Kenner and Star Wars toys.

Be interested to hear any comments. I have made a start and posted 5 posts on it in the last couple of weeks.

Happy new year

Alex

Thanks, I've added a couple of 1977 TV commercials for the early bird set and action figures

Thanks for the comments. I will make regular posts. Some of the topics will be the POTF series, AFA graded cards and the ESB 12" Action Figures. I also like to focus on the more obscure toys, so expect to see a post about Yoda hand puppet soon!

There will also be some other toy lines such as Indiana Jones, Tron and the A-Team.

Re: Started a blog www.retrotoyinfo.co.uk. New post on the ROTJ Imperial Shuttle

Postby retrotoyinfo » Fri Jan 05, 2018 6:04 am

Hi All,

I created a new post on the 1984 Imperial Shuttle vehicle at www.retrotoyinfo.co.uk. I love this toy. The post took me a while as I wanted to reference as many catalogs as possible, as well as explain all the International versions. The original Kenner TV advert is viewable too.
