I got one of these for X-Mas, and i wanted to know some stuff about it, anyone know anything? It says on the package the figs were cast from the original molds, which is evident, it is really cool, although they are not *Techniaclly* original, and i think the paint Jobs are A whole lot better than they were, anyone know?

Hi Mrhat! This 4-Pack was a Toys'R'Us exclusive. It retailed at $19.99. It has the same molds but I believe the Chewbacca is slightly different in size then the original. The manufacture dates on the legs say 1995 rather than 1977 so people cannot pass them off as originals.

Thanks! How rare is it? it *says* strictly limited release, now is that a fact or, just to push the product?

They can always be sold on repro cards :)

The 4-Pack is not common but not rare either. It sells on the secondary market between $30-60 roughly. It's a neat collectible. I kinda wanted another version with Boba Fett and a couple of other bounty hunters.

Which 4 figures were in the Classic Edition 4-Pack? Were they they the four that came from the "Early Bird" pack?

It comes with Chewebacca, Luke, Darth V., and Han Solo, so no 3po or leia, plus it comes with 4 exclusive widevision cards, which is cool.

It's not the same figures as the original Early Bird set. The original Early Bird set of vintage figures consisted of Luke, Leia, R2-D2, and Chewbacca.

- The Luke has an extended telescoping lightsaber.
- The Chewbacca came with a 'greenish' looking bowcaster rather than a blue one.

IIRC, Kenner received a lot of negative feedback with this set from the vintage collectors at the time. That's why there were no additional figures released like these.

Thanks for answering my question, Mr. Hat!

I remember my friend getting the early bird figures with the Luke, Leia, Chewie and Artoo. Since there were four, I was kinda wondering if they would have kinda released them in that pack as well. Interesting that they chose Vader and Han instead of going with the original four. The line up actually DOES make sense. Han goes with Chewie and Luke is related to Vader.

It is a nice set, that alot of people want. I remember when they first came out, they were everywhere around me. Then they just dissapeared.

Are there any pictures of the Classic Four set?

PIC? .......of the Classic Edition 4-Pack, or the Early Bird set? If the Classic Edition 4- Pack, then SSG has one in the Archives (http://www.myfigures.com/pa/index.html?item_id=11149) Probably has the Vintage set as well;)

No... couldn't find any pictures of it in the photo archives. :cry:

It's a pretty cool set. As Jayspawn said, Chewie is shorter than the original. Also, the lightsabers are molded in harder, neon colored plastic. I believe the Vinyl cape on vader was also shaped different. Rebelscum has a picture in their archives.

My little brother has that set, but the box is really beat up....I remember he got it cheap....when it first came out.....

sweet figures.....I wish my original Vader still had his cape and saber......

I was never able to find this one. I have EVERYthing else in figures, vehicles, and playsets that have been released since the 90's except the 4 pack. damn.

I am missing a lot of vehicles from the 90's era, but i still have the classic edition 4-pack, damn.

We in the UK, really hate those store exclusives that are in the US. That Classic 4 pack was a bummer to get, and expensive.

I found mine at a collectors fair, and then another one so I now have two of them.

They now retail over here for between 60 and 80. Talk about rare and expensive.
