  • Point of Interest: 
      This figure debuted in the United States on The Power Of The Force card, and in Europe on the Tri-Logo card. It was never packaged on a Canadian card.

    Comments: Though not usually the topic of many conversations, the Imperial Gunner figure is sculpted after the soldiers who worked the weapons of the second death Star and not the first. Eagle-eyed star Wars fans will note that the guys operating the big laser in A new Hope wore large padded chest plates, where the ones in Return Of The Jedi, just like this dude, did their evil in non-restrictive black jumpsuits.

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

    Endor Blaster
    This weapon was moulded in many shades of gray and blue/gray, as well as black plastic using at least three slightly different sculpts. All the gray and blue/gray versions can be found with the AT-ST Driver, Princess Leia Organa (In Combat Poncho), and B-Wing Pilot action figures. The Black accessory was only included with the Imperial Gunner and A-Wing Pilot (both Power Of The Force and Droids versions).
