The magic of Star Wars toys and the Gentle Giant Jumbo Figures

When I was a kid, the Star Wars action figures by Kenner were the coolest toys ever for reasons I cannot explain.. but I’ll try. Revisiting the old commercials I was struck by the variety of options that kids had when playing with their Star Wars collection. They had bounty hunters, droids, pilots, hard-drinking aliens, jedi knights and princesses. Sure, the Star Wars ‘sound effects’ reminded me more of a dental visit than a laser gun, but these remain my favorite toys ever.

Though limited in movement and primitive in sculpt by today’s standards, the Star Wars Kenner toys brought out the imaginative side of each kid who owned one or more.

Or you could just tie an M-80 to them and explode your collection in your driveway…

But seriously, these toys still have an allure that defies logic.

Now you can get them as 12 inch toys.

Truly this is an age of wonders.
