    Comments: Return Of The Jedi film making fact: Certainly most Star Wars Aficionados know that during production, Lucasfilm fooled the media by filming it under the bogus title “Blue Harvest”, but many don’t know that the AT-ST Driver that got the most screen time was preformed by none other than the film’s (now deceased) director, Richard Marquand. Unfortunately, the figure was not based on his likeness.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the AT-ST Driver has no known major variations.

    Endor Blaster
    This weapon was moulded in many shades of gray and blue/gray, as well as black plastic using at least three slightly different sculpts. All the gray and blue/gray versions can be found with the AT-ST Driver, Princess Leia Organa (In Combat Poncho), and B-Wing Pilot action figures. The Black accessory was only included with the Imperial Gunner and A-Wing Pilot (both Power Of The Force and Droids versions).

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    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.
