    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.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
