TUSKEN RAIDER (SAND PEOPLE) Star Wars 3 3/4" Action Figure

Kenner's Sand People had style; buckets of it. With his tricked out Gaderffii Stick and off the rack Vinyl Cape, he was the mack! The Sand honeys sure would have dug this guy if only they existed back in the days of the Classic Star Wars Trilogy.

Originally named 'Sand People' on the Star Wars cards, this figure was renamed 'Sandpeople' on The Empire Strikes Back cards, but not for long as it once again got renamed on the Return of the Jedi card as 'Tusken Raider (Sand People)'. Internationally, the Tri-logo card lists the figure as 'Tusken Raider (Sand People) (Hommes des Sables)'.

  • This figure was packed a Brown Gaderffii Stick and a Tan Vinyl Cape.
  • Even though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Tusken Raider's only major variation was a slightly resculpted head with hollow cheek tubes. To date, the hollow tube variation has only appeared on cards from Return Of The Jedi. No carded examples on either Star Wars or The Empire Strikes Back card have been found.

I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
