OK, what Kenner does to make me cringe in this commercial (kid cutting out the POP on a vintage card), they make up for in the proof cards they show at the end. In any case…the nostalgia factor is on ‘eleven’ for me on this one. (That background music is slammin’ too.)
Arrived today. Couldn’t wait to share!
We’re a 3rd of the way there! Figure #7 of Collect All 21 revealed: Blue Snaggletooth!
Now, I know this doesn’t follow the example of using a modern figure on a vintage cardback, but I felt he needed his rightful place within the original vintage cardback genre.
Also, I had a little help on this one from my friends at Beggar’s Canyon Toys. If you haven’t seen their vintage Star Wars restoration services yet, they are TOP NOTCH. You can check them out here.
Figure #5 of 21 revealed - Han Solo (in TK-422 Stormtrooper Armor)*
*TK422 also happens to be the license plate on my car…
Figure #4 of 21 - Tedn Dahai (Cantina Band Member)
Tedn Dahai was a Bith musician and professional fanfar player for the popular Jizz band known as Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes. Along with his band mates, Tech was a registered member of the Intergalactic Federation of Musicians (IFM) in good standing. Like many Bith, Tech possessed a highly evolved brain, which allowed him a special acuity when it came to analyzing and relating to music. As such, his talents helped to greatly enhance the quality and popularity of the Modal Nodes’ music.
The documentary on vintage Star Wars toy collecting that I have a (extremely small) part in has been chosen for a Kickstarter campaign, and there are some cool rewards for pledges!
Figure #3 Complete: Beru Whitesun Lars
Beru Lars was the closest thing to a mother that Luke Skywalker ever knew. She and husband Owen lovingly raised Luke as their nephew, and trained him in the mundane ways of moisture farming on their arid Tatooine homestead. All along, Beru understood that a larger destiny awaited Luke.
Next figure revealed! Figure #3 is: Beru Whitesun Lars (naturally)
Can you guess any of the others?
Even my kicks rock the Kenner ‘white and blue’!
