I was born in the late 70's so I am an 80's kid. I owned lots of ESB and ROTJ when I was young. But when I moved, all the toys were lost as I was left with 2 figures , Ben Kenobi and Darth Vader, both with their blades and vinyl capes missing.
So when POTF2 resurfaced in 1995, I became a carded collector, and when the FF figures were out, I was obsessed! I found the sculpts amazingly detailed and accurate. Finally, I totally loved my favorite line, Power of the Jedi, which is a collector's dream come true.
Today, I'm still kicking in high gear in Star Wars collecting, but sometimes grow tired of Hasbro's decisions. But overall, Hasbro/Kenner was the company that set the standard for action figures, and made Star Wars the huge success that it is today.
Way to go!
