Originally published in 1983 by Marvel Comics, the 4-issues that make up Star Wars: Return of the Jedi have been reprinted a number of times.

In 1994, Dark Horse released the two-issue Classic Star Wars: Return of the Jedi series, a pair of prestige format comic books reprinting Return of the Jedi #1-4, making them available for the first time since their original publication. Creators include Archie Goodwin, Al Williamson, and Carlos Garzon, with new covers by Adam Hughes and Williamson, and a special gallery of concept artwork was included in each issue. These issues were also collected into a special trade paperback offered with the 2006 DVD release of the Original Unaltered Trilogy from Wal*Mart stores.

Then, when the original version of the Classic Trilogy was released "for the last time" on video, a set of collected editions were published. These issues borrowed the same cover artwork from the video set and were square-bound. All three volumes were available separately, or in a special slipcase boxed set with slightly different cover art.

In honor of 1997's Special Editions, Dark Horse reprinted the Classic Star Wars: Return of the Jedi trade paperback with a new cover by Greg and Tim Hildebrandt, but no changes to the interior art. The trade paperback was also part of a Special Edition Boxed Set.

In 1999, a Japanese Manga version was produced by Shin-ichi Hiromoto, with covers by Adam Warren. This version was altered to suit Western audiences, being read left to right.

Manga publisher Tokyopop created a photo comic, or Cine-Manga, which is comic style book, but using images from the films of the Original Trilogy. These books were later reprinted by Dark Horse Comics.

And of course, Star Wars comics are not exclusively American. Here we feature some covers from other countries around the world.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
