We've been trying to stay off the big properties, like Star Wars, but there are significant days our retro toy commercial column has to follow suit. Today is the anniversary release date of Return of the Jedi (first known as Revenge of the Jedi). We tried to do a good mix of oddball toys, figures, mini-rigs, and above all spaceships! That was the great thing about ROTJ, it literally had everything. We had talk fishing men, meat-eating teddy bears, elephants that played keyboards, and affordable small star vehicles. Get ready to enjoy some pixelated nostalgia, Junkies! #maytheforcebewithyou #AFJ4LIFE
Nien Numb Mail Away
The hype begins... and only 48 figures!
Years later they did make the exterior of the bunker. I know, I have it.
Jabba the Hutt and The Max Rebo Band
How many gangster action figures do you have that also have action figures of their own house band?!
Star Wars: Revenge of the Jedi - Admiral Ackbar Toy Offer
So Nein Numb would have made #49, right? So Admiral Ackbar would have been #50. So why did the guy say all 48? To go one further, why is Admiral Ackbar 6 proofs of purchases and Nein Numb is only 5!!!
Never ever had one, well, until the re-release. Which was far superior IMHO.
Star Wars Mini-Rigs
As toys go, for Star Wars, mint condition Mini-Rigs go for a hefty sum. They are also great for world building.
IMHO they best Imperial ship Kenner ever made. It has been redone by Hasbro, however, this thing was a beast for its day.
Ewok Village Playset
They really cannibalized those Wicket figures to make additional Ewoks.
Han Solo, Logray, Biker Scout, and Chief Chirpa Figures
I cannot believe they went with a "Big-Head" Han for this commercial, why not a Bespin Han?
When the hell did this happen in the movie? In all seriousness though, it was a super cool ship.
