“Found In The Attic – Star Wars Action Figures (Part 4)”

Okay here’s the final part in the Star Wars Action Figures brochure series, featuring three more toys and three more kids being teased with the hottest toys of the age.
First we have a radio-controlled R2D2.  The photo makes it look huge, almost life-size.  The text however makes it known that it is only 20cm tall.  That kid with the Art Garfunkel afro looks pretty happy though.
The second toy, the Creature Cantina, is bizarre.  Does the cantina in the movie, while really entertaining, merit an entire playset?  The photo doesn’t make it look very good and the text doesn’t make it sound good either.  The kid playing with it once again looks delighted.
The final toy has to be the coolest of the three – Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter.  With this kids can pretend they are the dark lord and try to destroy the rebel alliance … what fun!
So that’s it for Star Wars action figures and playsets from 1979.  I wonder how much George Lucas made from these?  It’s unknown, but what is known is that the merchandising mania only got stronger when the next movie came out in 1980.  More 2 come…
