DARTH VADER TIE FIGHTER VEHICLE

Star Wars

3 3/4" Vehicle

Kenner originally released the Darth Vader TIE Fighter Vehicle in 1979 along with the Millennium Falcon Spaceship, the Land Of The Jawas playset, the Creature Cantina playset, the Droid Factory playset, the Patrol Dewback, and the Imperial Troop Transporter.

Even though there are three distinct packaging variations on the Kenner version of this vehicle, it was only released with the Star Wars logo. When it was released in 1980, the second version of the package matched the 1979 version, but featured a Special Offer sticker and came with a cardboard diorama. The Darth Vader TIE Fighter hit the shelves once more in 1984 as part of Kenner's short-lived Collector Series, which featured what was essentially the same box art. Two notable differences: The toy was slightly renamed "Darth Vader TIE Fighter Vehicle" (adding the word 'vehicle') and the Collector Series starburst printed on the top right corner.

    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.
