From 1978 to 1982, Star Wars comic book fans got a weekly dose of adventures in that galaxy far, far away with the Star Wars Weekly comic book.

Issue #118 had The Empire Strikes Back added to the title, as the movie was reprinted, followed by other US stories. Other Marvel sci-fi characters were included in each issue, such as the Micronauts, Warlock, the Watcher, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord, Deathlok, and Man-Wolf.

In 1981, the title changed to a monthly schedule and dropped the "Weekly" from the title. The comic art covers began using more photos from the films, and then became a series of annuals and specials printed in hardcover editions.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
