After a little reading through a retro toy magazine in the MOTU article I noticed it says how Mattel passed up on producing the original Star Wars toys, what a wounding move for them
but this is something I never knew about.
So today in an alternate reality if things turned out their way back then we could be looking at a Mattel logo on MOC's right now ( for U.S. toys at least anyway ) and it makes me wonder how things may have turned out design wise. I'm assuming Kenner were the guys who actually designed the original toys?, so could our beloved vintage figures have turned out to look closer to Masters of The Universe and hench as fuck?, basically bringing us POTF2 but in the 70's?.. Or they could have ended up being sculpted in realistic proportion but just looking more 'cartoon like' and more 'fun' for kids?, we may not have even ended up with the classic miniature 3 3/4 inch scale figures, but 5 or 6 inch instead.
Thoughts and possible theories?
