Kenner Star Wars Line for 1978
If you were a kid under ten in the late seventies you were witness to one of the biggest phenoms the toy industry had seen, the Kenner Star Wars line. Even though it was late for Christmas, Kenner came out with both barrels the following year utilizing their master toy license to the maximum with pages of product that made my eight year old heart flutter.

First and foremost it was about the figures, Kenner's original twelve are a memory I can't erase.
Seeing these displays for the first time in years was a real trip, the X Wing Fighter was vital to this line, how else would you blow up The Deathstar?

I honestly think Star Wars Death Star playset goes in the top five playsets ever.
The lightsaber and diecast vehicles are still being produced in different forms today, I'd call that a success.
The twelve inch Star Wars characters were a popular thing on my wishlists.
Remote controlled R2-D2 could double as an action figure.
