    Comments: 1985 saw the plastic tribute to a great film finally realized with the addition of Barada to Kennerís Star Wars action figure collection. Though subtle enough to be missed by all but the most faithful science fiction aficionado, someone (or some people) at Lucasfilm wanted to honour the film ĎThe Day The Earth Stood Stillí by using the three words that could save the human race from certain extinction subtly in Return Of The Jedi, a film thirty-two years itís junior. So, unlike most of the background characterís in the Star Wars saga, Klaatu, Barada, Nikto will always have the greatest of meanings.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Barada action figure has no known variations.

    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.
