USA Kenner Debut MOC Guide

Postby theforceuk » Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:18 pm

So here’s my guide for all 96 Kenner Star Wars action figures. I will not include variations, (I don’t no either!) this is just meant to be a basic reference guide to which card each figure first appeared on in the USA. This is by no means a guide from my own knowledge, more of a gathering of information from what I have found and other members have corrected from my original post.

Star Wars logo
12 Back-A
Description of all 12 figures with artists impressions, instructions how to use the telescoping lightsaber. Also action figure stand offer is displayed at $2, two POP’s. Tie Fighter, X-Wing and Landspeeder pictured.
1)Luke Skywalker
2)Darth Vader
3)C-3PO
4)R2-D2
5)Stormtrooper
6)Death Squad Commander
7)Sandpeople
8)Princess Leia Organa
9)Ben Kenobi
10)Chewbacca
11)Han Solo
12)Jawa

20 Back-B
The eight new figures are pictured above the first twelve. Action figure case, Droid Factory, Creature Cantina, Land of the Jawa’s and Dewback pictured. This card Back is virtually identical to the 20 a back, the best way to tell a 20 a from a 20 b is that Luke Skywalker is stood to the left of the picture for the Creature Cantina on a 20 back b. It’s interesting that Kenner released a new card back the 20 Back a, without any of the new figures packaged on that card. Credit to aussiejames for correcting this.
13)Walrus Man
14)Power Droid
15)Greedo
16)Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot)
17)Snaggletooth (Red)
18)R5-D4
19)Hammerhead
20)Death Star Droid

21 Back-A
Card back shows the first 21 figures, Action Figure Case, Droid Factory, Creature Cantina, Land of the Jawa’s and Dewback.
21)Boba Fett

Empire Strikes Back logo
31 Back-A
First 31 figures appear on reverse, along with pictures of Snowspeeder, Imperial Transport and Millennium Falcon.
22)Princess Leia Organa (Bespin Gown)
23)Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)
24)Han Solo (Hoth Battle Gear)
25)IG-88
26)Hoth Stormtrooper
27)FX-7

29)Bossk
30)Lando Calrissian

31)Hoth Rebel Soldier

32 Back-B
The same as a 31 Back b with Yoda pictured to the upper left corner. Slightly different play sets, Hoth Playset, Star Destroyer and Darth Vader Case.

47 Back
Free 4-Lom offer on front of card. Note there is only one version of the 47 Back and Tie Fighter Pilot and Zuckuss are the new editions to the reverse. Also worth mentioning there are hardly any known examples of Zuckuss on this card, I personally consider his debut card to be the 48 Back-A
48)Tie Fighter Pilot
49)Zuckuss

48 Back-A
The back of the card shows 48 figures and pictures of AT-ST, Tauntaun, Wampa, five mini rigs and Rebel Transport. There is a known example of 4-Lom on a 47 back card. But sticking to the first card he appeared on the front and back it’s the 48 Back a.

I am not sure, but I think jason did a palitoy guide :D

But yes it would be cool to see such a guide and for me also to know which cardbacks that I am missing for each character :D Do you know about a kenner guide ? It could be cool for me to start with the cheaper kenner cards so I could see what I am missing of them :D

I am also sure about Joe did a Tri-logo cardback guide :D

Agreed, pretty sure Rebel Soldier debuted on the 31b not 31a, happy to be corrected though.

I’ve been waiting to be corrected on something. :lol: I will have a look tonight and correct it accordingly, It’s actually not easy to find a guide which specifies exactly which versions they were released on.

Thanks for pointing it out anyway.

Thanks for pointing that out, I didn’t even bother checking them just assumed they were 20 A. :?

Ok I’ve corrected accordingly, the only 31 Back A I can’t find an example of is Hoth Rebel Soldier.

Thanks again, Adam.

I’m going to add photos to this guide, I don’t have all the card backs though so if anyone can help would be great. I’m definitely missing 20-B, 31-B and 32-B. Any help much appreciated. Thanks Adam.

Thanks very much to Andy (Spoons) for providing 41-A and 48-A photo’s.
