  • Comments: There’s something funny about the Death Star Droid that most collectors don’t think about when looking at it. Even though there is a similar droid in the Death Star (with a black finish), this guy was actually in the Jawas’ sandcrawler, making it more of a ‘Sandcrawler Droid’. Nonetheless, the name error caused it to have a bit more playability than it would have had, what with him secretly being a spy for the Empire and all…

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Death Star Droid figure has no major variations.

    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.
