This was the line that started it all...in 1977, Star Wars became the biggest movie franchise ever (at least in my opinion, the best!), and Kenner took a chance and released the first ever action figure line. The line would run from 1977-1985, and my brother got them new. Unlike so many other people, luckily, we kept ours, although they do have decades of paint wear.
Most of the figures are technically his, not mine, although a few are- at the end of the line's run in '85, the figures were very hard to find, and he was unable to locate them all. Nowadays with card/comic shows (Which I miss!), vintage toy sellers, and the internet we've tracked down most of them.
