Enjoy the latest official blog post from Tim Veekhoven in which he takes us down memory lane with a review of the various Star Wars creatures that were released in the vintage Kenner line.

Animals (creatures) from the Star Wars universe have always been among my favorite aspects of the saga. Some are loyal and brave, others are treacherous and dangerous. Some look like prehistoric animals and others were derived from mythology (check out the series of previous blogs). There can be no Star Wars movie or television series without the presence of some cool creatures.

When Kenner was developing its most successful line of toys ever, they must have shared this idea. While technology during the classics didn’t allow George Lucas to portray some of the creatures like he had intended, the classic trilogy features some of the most beloved Star Wars monsters. Kenner didn’t make many creatures, but the ones they did really mattered.
