So THIS is what it must have felt like back in the late 70’s. I was too young to remember receiving my first batch of Star Wars figures during that time period, so what I found waiting for me on my doorstep yesterday evening took me back. WAY back. Upon arriving home from work I was greeted with a package from the awesome Hasbro public relations team at Litzky PR containing all six of the figures from the new Retro Kenner Collection 3.75″ line in celebration of Star Wars Day.
The figures came packaged in a sweet-looking box with flip-up lid and gorgeous Kenner graphics. I snapped a few photos of the box and the figures (I added the Early Bird Certificate to the group shot that I had received a few days earlier) which you can check out below. This new set of figures will be debuting at Target this month, but will also be made available for purchase at other locations as well. No word if the Escape From Death Star game featuring the exclusive Grand Moff Tarkin Kenner-styled figure will also be available outside of Target.
As always, we cannot thank Hasbro and Litzky PR enough for providing us here at Jedi News with this generous offering. May the 4th be with you!
