    Comments: For over a thousand generations an elite society of warriors known as the Jedi Knights acted as guardians to the Old Republic. They were warriors of light, protectors of freedom and justice. Jedi let the Force flow through them, performing amazing feats of unbelievable power and proportion. The Old Republic flourished under their protection, until the power hungry Emperor Palpatine and a corrupt Jedi known as Darth Vader hunted down and eradicated the order of Jedi Knights. The only ones known to survive were Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Jedi Master Yoda. Thus began the era of the evil Empire.

    Years later, the appearance of Luke Skywalker offered new hope. Under the tutelage of Obi-Wan and Yoda, he learned the ways of the Force and became a Jedi Knight.Using his newly-developed powers, Luke successfully led a campaign to rescue Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt. After Yoda confirmed what Luke feared most - that Darth Vader was his father - he decided to confront Vader, not to do battle, but to reach whatever good remained in the man once known as Anakin Skywalker. The diabolical Emperor Palpatine wanted Luke's power under his tutelage, but the young Jedi was strong and resisted the potent allure of the dark side - though it nearly cost him his life. When the Emperor rose to annihilate Luke Skywalker, Vader hurled Palpatine to his death, sacrificing himself for his son.

    Points of Interest:
  • The lightsaber was released in two forms: the rings were originally indented on the handle, then changed so that they were raised.
  • The cloak was originally more of a blue color, then changed to black.
  • The vest on the figure was originally grey, then changed to black. This may have been due to the Shadows of the Empire adventure, which was presented at the time of the figure's release, but is most likely simply a production error.
  • This same exact figure was also available as a exclusive figure for the release of Return of the Jedi: Special Edition in 1997.

    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.
