    Comments: Despite how simplistic the vintage Nikto figure appears to be, it is one of the most faithful sculpts to be found in the Kenner line. As a matter of fact, save the yellow lines that were on the character’s pants, this figure proves that the people at Kenner were not only very concerned with making top quality toys that best represented the film, they wanted to make toys worthy of the children that they made the toys for. There is little doubt that Kenner ‘really did care’ about more than the bottom line and it showed.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Nikto action figure has no documented major variations.

    Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
    You couldn't stop me from attending!
    I'll thinking about it...
    I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
    I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
    That's your uncle talking.
    Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
    No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
