Gunaxin has created a list of awesome Star Wars toys from the 70s and 80s. I’m sad to say, I never had any of these, but if I did, I think my favorite would have been this one …
Yes, it reads, “with open belly rescue feature.” And yes, it’s real, not Photoshopped. Here’s more info.
I had the pre-open-belly tauntaun. It was awesome, because the saddle attachement had the character’s legs already molded and painted on it, so when you put the figure’s legs through a trap door in the top(the creature’s back) of the toy, it looked like the figure was actually RIDING the thing. Well done.
Also, I had the Jabba the Hutt, the Millenium Falcon…and apparently I am one of like twelve people in the world that actually ended up getting that AT-AT.
They are all gone now, because I am a fool with no foresight.
Oh, and truly, THIS was THE best.
