Should we be successful with this book, we plan to do volume two as Vehicle, Creatures and playsets with the same kind of treatment! Thanks for everyone’s support!
That would be amazing! Good luck!

Re: The most in-depth guide to the original Kenner Star Wars Action Figures

Did the thing too, though I'm not really into carded stuff, but I love how this looks and I'm thinking part 2 might be MIB (here's to hoping). 8)

Fantastic set that you have. Do you know if the esb kenner box was the only box that was made for this set or is there also other box variants ? :D
Not sure, maybe a Canadian version?
ok thanks :D so there is not a palitoy or meccano ? :?
No, I'm afraid not.
