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.

Hi All,

Someone from the forum suggested I post my blog link here.

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

Most of the pictures used in the blog were taken by me from toys in my personal collection. I have also videos showing TV adverts etc

I have collected Star wars and TV show related 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 7 posts on it in the last couple of weeks.

Happy new year
