Availability: Jan. 1996 to Dec. 1998

Variations: 

  • Rectangular Bubble
  • Stand Up Bubble
  • with THX leaftlet
  • 2001 Jedi-Con Exclusive Figure

Comments: Although he was pictured on the cardback of the first figures released in 1995, he was only a new figure of 1996. He was available during almost all the European line. It is interesting to know that this figure has been re-used as exclusive and re-packed in a nice coloured box for the Star Wars Fan-Club convention Jedi-Con, which took place in Germany in April 2001.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
